Comments: Solo acoustic performance in 'The Starlit Crypt' at a coffeehouse in Athens, GA on March 7, 1997. In addition to audio playable on a normal CD player, this is an enhanced CD that includes QuickTime video of the entire show that you can watch on your computer, shot by R.E.M. cameraman and independent film maker Lance Bangs. It's just Jeff in almost complete darkness, with a few colored lights hanging behind him and a small child cavorting in the background. Though an official release, the sound quality has "bootleg" all over it. Even small gaps between tracks. Still, a nice disc for any obsessed NMH fan. Highlights include an otherwise unreleased song called "I Will Bury You In Time", the Phil Spector song (actually written by Barry Mann and Larry Kolber, but Spector produced the Paris Sisters version which popularized the song in 1961), and an early version of "Two-Headed Boy Pt. 2" that includes a great extended ending not on the album version.
