Signature Live

Because  oftentimes the song you want to hear live 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. Goof and gremmie are here to help.

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.
