As a bonus, the two-CD set includes six songs recorded at other locales, resulting in a package that ...

    Fabulous

    This CD was made at the concert in New York City just days after we saw Neil at the Wachovia in Philadelphia. The concert was fabulous.
    I've been hoping and waiting for the CD to be released and I was at Barnes & Noble the day it went on sale.
    No disappointments here; It takes me back to that concert in August 2008.
