Twenty years on, anybody of you guys in the USA know whether a remastered vinyl edition of this absolute gem is planned/rumoured? So many good memories of my first trip to NYC and Canada in 1998.

All in all, I truly feel this is Dave and the Band's fullest and most experimental record as far as showcasing themselves, and even intertwining other well known artists on top of what is already thick business.

What goes through pure beauty and serenity at points, leads to utter chaos and destruction at others. Resolution is met through soft tones of harmony and bliss.

A few segues also roam around the album...Some so tasteful I wish they would've blossomed into full tracks.

The wave continues throughout the entire album...It's a shame the DMB never were into pressing really anything they ever did, as I would for sure snatch this one up!
