If you’re reading this, it’s likely you’ve heard the song “Evenflow” live no less than 10 times; each rendition slightly different than the last. But how many times have you heard “I Got You” live? Was it a quality version?

Chances are it was recorded by some guy in the 10th row with a tape recorder in one hand and a beer in the other. The rarer the song, the worse the quality it seems. Ever heard the first iteration of MFC from the 12.04.96 show in Rome? Precisely.

The Signature Live series is meant to act as “best version of [insert rare song here]” both in terms of sound quality and performance dynamics.
