    Thanks for the tags and the keyboard player’s name, Malisa!

    deb,I checked the Gonna Move file and it seems to be ok. I think you just had a glitch in your download. Maybe try downloading that song again?

    If I could imagine the absolutely least original statement about the music of Taylor Hicks, this would be it: When I share his music with people who either don’t know him or who only vaguely remember him from AI, I share the live performances, the lovingly taped stuff. What can be practically wooden on the “polished” album(s), when performed live erupts in shoots and flowers. I agree with a review I read somewhere that the second album has a distinct lack of emotive variation. But live he gets to explore the space, if you know what I mean, and I think you do.

    Without you, t&jam, we’d have only a faint suggestion of what could be. There is good work here, honest performing and music making. Much less of the self-indulgent cheesiness that I remember from LA and Vegas. Might I call it almost too disciplined? There are also moments of frisson, baybee, moments when I understand what happened to me, to us all in those strange early days.

    It feels like home. Thanks for the downloads!

    Wow, I’m just now getting to listen for the first time. Excellent audio quality and I don’t mind the crowd noise. It makes me feel like I’m there. I’m so glad Taylor went Indie and is able to create his own music now. Thanks for your hard work; it is very much appreciated.

    Not to be overdramatic, but it’s like a moment in time that was so precious to me is captured ~ and it’s mine to keep.

    Without you, it’s in my head. Thanks to you, it’s on my iPod!

    Thanks so much! LOVED sharing the evening with you!

    That’s exactly why I like audio recordings. It’s a moment in time I get to keep…

    It was great to meet you, Karen. Sorry San Francisco had to be so cold. Next time I promise to order up some warmer weather. And thanks so much for letting me post your great pictures on my Cafe du Nord posts. 🙂

    Thank you so much for keeping the memories alive for me too! Wish I had met you there! Didn’t socialize enough I guess. I’ll try to do better if I make it to Seattle.

    One of the best parts of this live music sharing is getting to drop back by and read what these captured performances mean to others — and to see myself in so many of the comments.

    Thanks again to Lisa, and to other friends for their insightful comments.
