Before embarking on this major tour with David Cross we planned to record all the shows with a view to potentially releasing them digitally. However, once I began reviewing the multi-track files, I was shocked to discover that in many cases both mine and Tony’s parts were missing, leaving us with far less useable material. Nonetheless, this setback inspired a creative approach that led us to produce this special boxed set. Across five themed discs we present the band’s progression throughout the tour using material and preferences that resonated with us.
Disc 1 presents a series of live “deep cuts” from the tour. With the quartet configuration the band‘s improvs transcended to a new plane, and this compilation highlights the spirit of those performances.

Toss a coin to your witcher!
This album by guitar wizard Markus Reuter has been on my wishlist since its release, but as I couldn't make up to buy this version or the surround one, it crept down the list...
After reading this https://www.gofundme.com/f/loss-of-earnings-january-july-2020 I was reminded to finally go for it!
BTW, this is MoonJune's 100th release, so your supporting that great label in hard times as well... 👍
Stay healthy, everyone! Carsten Pieper
