  1. Incredible list of covers. Would’ve loved to have seen Concrete Blonde’s “Still in Hollywood”, or “Dead Flowers”, or “Bastards of the Young”. Great stuff.

  2. Chris: Thank you so much.
    Unbelievable for you to post these for us.
    Tapers: All I can say is wow. You guys kick a shit load of ass.

  3. mark said it best. Thank you tapers, this is an amazing collection and im sure theres much more to come. HIP HIP HIP!

  4. to all the tapers out there, thank you from all of us for this unbelieveable collection of covers. It now has turned into a two disc collection for me.
    thanks again,

  5. Hey Chris, I recorded the Erie show. I could send you Street Fightin’ Man to upload.

  6. I was at the 3/9 Buffalo show and last night at the 5/18 Erie show. In Buffalo, they did Can’t Explain just after touring with The Who – really tight; felt like I was listening to The Who. But last night, I thought they absolutely nailed Street Fighting Man. They opened the encore with Lonely End of the Rink and then the stage hand brought out Rob’s acoustic guitar (a lot of folks around me were thinking Bobcaygeon was coming) and Gordie announced that they like to learn a new song every day. Rob went into the opening of Street Fighting Man and they did a “stone-perfect” rendition. Was really one of the highlights. It was followed by a great version of Little Bones to end the show.

  7. Great job by all the tapers getting these for us. And as always great job by Chris TO us! You guys rock…

  8. Hi…i dont know who will read this, hopefully the administrator of this website…I was at the Clifton PArk show and i recorded the Bob Dylan, however its in video format….would you still want it? let me know….its on YouTube if anyone wants to see it…i dont know the song all that well but im told he does a good version of the song

  9. it would be great if someone upped the ones that are currently missing from this list.

  10. I post the songs as I get them… and the taper for most of these shows is still on the road following the band.

  11. The cover for the 9:30 Club in Washington DC 4/29/07 was a great version of David Bowie’s Young Americans.
