Re: Threshold - "Two - Zero - One - Seven" (New live album)

I think they did this with the last live disc as well ....... songs were recorded all over the place I believe. I prefer the one, long show as well ....... but I'll take live Threshold any way I can get it .......

I'm stuck in a 3-way decision for disc of the year......

We are getting close to that time of year where end of the year lists are changed quickly -- some by mid-year, some by the end of Prog Power, and the rest my last minute surprise efforts that come out at the end of the year ........ I've worked thru 2 of those changes, but obviously not the end of t...
