(It's not clear to me if this live album will also be commercially released and/or available on iTunes.) Anyway, see http://www.kungfunation.com/index.php?m ... cts_id=999

An FYI, I had preordered this from Tift's website a while back and got it in the mail a couple of weeks ago. Thankfully, the sound quality is better than my Union Hall recording! Definitely recommended for Tift fans.

I'm SURE you're just being modest. :wink:

Thanks, Russell! I've been meaning to listen to Tift's music since I heard Patty on The Spark.

She is just awesome live.
