Producers Notes:

This has been three months in the making and it was well worth it, even if I will probably never listen to another Hold Your Fire show again.? :)? Seven shows, 3 soundchecks?. All the Hold Your Fire UK shows.? Some of the shows are pretty good, especially the later dates.? Most of the soundchecks stink but they do give the listener a brief window into the making of the show and are worth a listen at least once.? There are a few cuts here and there, especially in the early dates.? All in all though, this is a worthy addition to any collection.?

Note ? the artwork is designed to fit into started jewel cases as ?separate? shows (which they are of course).? Finding a 17 disc jewel case proved to be slightly difficult.

Special thanks goes out to Neph for the artwork, Gebs for providing the source and of course Mick for providing the tapes to Gebs?

This recording was produced by fans, for fans and is never to be sold. If you like this recording, support the artists and purchase their official releases! As is the Simple Man norm, this show is available on Direct Connect and will be traded freely to all comers.

Nothing interesting here. Songs played: Subd, Manhattan, Time, BigM and some might not be complete. No talk at all between songs. Very distant and muffled. A few minutes of simple drum test beats to start with.   (2006-07-08)
