looking at what is on this cd,not a whole lot of unreleased material,it even dips into stuff put out by ftd on the rocking across texas book,i was excited about this release, but looking at the tracklsiting,so much of it has been out before,as i already own cajan tornado,im glad to have this,but looking for this label to get back on track!

We surely had great Madison releases... but this one is just an average 76 tour show with no surprises.. no more..no less.. the great soundquality alone doesn´t make a superior show..
