    Setlist submitted to the Project by Laurie Christensen, who wrote:

    The Palace theater holds 1500 people. We were stage center, halfway back. Not a bad seat in the house and the acoustics were fabulous. The musicians all were onstage, sitting and playing in this order (from right to left): Emmylou Harris, Bruce Cockburn, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Steve Earle, and Nanci Griffith. In addition to his own songs, Bruce played either lead or backup guitar for Emmylou and Mary. [Rumours Of Glory] was a stunner - totally different interpretive version; slow, pulsing unbelieveably fine guitar work in which he patiently evoked countertones and harmonies from the strings; his vocals on this one were achingly tender. A stunner, all across the board. Other rumours: There is a PBS documentary about these concerts in the works, which will contain the "best of" from the entire tour. No date announced yet, but apparently it's going to happen.

    QUALITY: Very good +
    COMMENTS: Submitted by Doug Stacey. Complete show pieced together from two different sources with great results. Second disc has between-song applause a little loud. Overall, a great audience recording of a great show.
