Ben's earliest live album with the Innocent Criminals was recorded
a couple of years after this show during his 2000 tour, they also
recorded a live DVD in 2003 from the Hollywood Bowl and another
live album was recorded in 2004 with the Blind Boys of Alabama
at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, N.Y. nothing was officially
available from this tour, as of this posting in 2012.
this was a fine inspired performance, oppression and get up stand up
was great, the transition so smooth it deserved to be left as 1 track.
