Brendan where did that Gillian song on your mix tape come from?

It's a live concert I got from Dimeadozen.org ... an FM broadcast recorded May 7 1997 at the Prism Coffeehouse in Charlottesville, VA. It also has a rockin' version of the Carter Family tune "Single Girl, Married Girl," which I've never heard them do elsewhere ... and a haunting a cappella tune called "Traveling on the Stormy Deep," (sort of sounds like "Wind and Rain" from the Songcatcher soundtrack) which never made it onto any of their albums.

I love this performance of "Dry Town," and it's important to me that folks hear Gil rocking it, with that Miranda whatshername getting attention for her cover version last year.
