very vital. It's just that for some reason they will NOT get what
they do best into a studio! That last tour they did was a total mind
fuck but where's the recording?
The 77 Boa Drum audio is essential. Extremely well recorded. The DVD
is highlights not the whole performance. No big deal. Super Roots 10
isn't terrible it's just ho hum.
I saw the triple drummer lineup for the first time in March 2002 and
waited and waited and waited for a studio recording. Eye himself even
told us that the whole thing was already recorded and would be out in
August (of 2002). I guess I'm still waiting for it. LOL!
After 7 years of this I'm beginning to believe that they're keeping
their recorded side and their LIVE side two separate entities.
<shrugs> Anybody's guess is as good as mine.
