10,000 MANIACS
Buffalo 1984 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Foreign Car Garage, Buffalo, NY; May 12, 1984. Very good soundboard.

It’s been 30 years since 10,000 Maniacs released The Wishing Chair (September 23, 1985).

Thanks to chopper7; and to jpeace for sharing the show at The Traders’ Den.

jpeace added:

A very rare recording of the Maniacs before they were famous. Listed as Natalie Merchant’s 30th show with the band. Excellent sounding if a little hissy soundboard recording. I reduced the hiss slightly and lifted the bass a bit, but for the most part left it as I got it.
