Filmed from the back of the stage, it's a nice vantage point, seeing the fans in all their obsessed glory! 'Still Ill' was fun to watch. I have to say it turned out to be such a project. It took me so much time to figure it out. Don't ask. But well worth it!

It's a torrent download, but download it if you can.

See a couple of stills <a href="http://www.smithstorrents.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1849#1849" target="_blank">here on the smithstorrents site--scroll up</a>

tracklist info <a href="http://www.passionsjustlikemine.com/gigs/smiths-g861021.htm" target="_blank">here</a>

I'd not seen this site before, looks pretty great! Is it seeded well?

That particular gig? or the torrents in general? Low seeders in general, but there's activity at least. I just like that this torrent site is band specific. (Could it get any better?)

*bump*

Steve was probably responsible for a lot of early boots and has now been putting his recordings up. What's fascinating are the stories he tells of those early gigs. They've been fun to read. It's a great site if you're also interested in all the bootlegs--essentially for the completist. :ph34r: Quite overwhelming.
