    Reggie, your not the only one looking for the live cd. I've really been kicking myself for not ordering it when it was available. All i can add is just check ebay and amazon from time to time and if i find somewhere that has it available, i'll come back on here and let you know, but it doesn't look too good. -chris

    Does anyone know how I could get the live album? I have been looking for it for so long now and I feel more lost now than when I started.

    Happy early birthday Josh. I'll be sure to consume many banana pancakes on the 18th. Thanks for the dream visit and the beautiful music that my little guy Max has been rocking out to as only a 2 year old can. He's especially fond of Brick House. We miss you but recognize the beauty of having your spirit everywhere now. Thanks for the many gifts. Stay close- CJD

    Hey Josh!! I just played a Lazlo show in Cambridge last night our 3rd show in almost 7 years and what a night it was. My father got up and played violin on Ship on the Wall and my 11 yr old niece, Eliza, sang harmonies on Map of My Heart and Trampoline. Eliza discovered your music this summer all on her own through an iPod I gave her with over 1000 songs. She heard Dragonfly and was instantly hooked. She listens to Spirit all the time now and knows every word. I'm staying at my sister's house - only a mile from your old place in Brookline - and so many great memories are flooding back. Packing up the Dodge mini- van for our maiden voyage to LA in '87 - jamming with Larry in your Living room. All our plans and dreams for rock stardom laid right before us. Who knew we would come so far and achieve so much. Speaking of achievements, Jeff's wedding was last weekend, and what a uperstar he was. Your words, spoken at the ceremony, are so insightful, so inspirational - was sitting next to Laura and Steve - my heart filled with the familiar melancholic mix of pride, happiness and sadness. I'm so happy I'm in SM near your sister now. So happy I'm near my sister tonight, thinking of you and how your music and your inspiration lives on. Loving and missing you dearly. Chad

    Was listening to the SOF version (live) of Father Figure, and remembered the SOF concert I saw in Columbia, Missouri, in the fall of 1991 (I believe). The concert was terrific, I recall, and one of the non-SOF songs the band played was the Beatles' Ticket to Ride. It was great! Wondering if others have similar recollections of cover songs sang by Josh/SOF. An SOF album of live tracks such as those would be a great way to remember Josh in a "new" context. Just read another post and realized that Josh's mother died last year. My condolences to the family; she was a nice woman who is missed.
