Well, for the first time, I've been bootlegged. And now that I've been the "victim" of "illegal" music downloading, I can say it firmly: I like it just fine. (And while I am not trying to make my living this way, I have to say that the positive effects of having our music shared freely among an active community of interested fans far, far outweighs any "losses" -- we played to a packed house in Toronto.)

Thanks to some folks on the Dylan Pool web site, who've been discussing our show, I have two nice soundboard recordings: one of Mike Ford, of the great Canadian band Moxy Früvous, singing a beautiful version of Dylan's "I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine" with Mike Skliar on dobro and me on harmonica, and my version of "Stupid Is the New Smart" with Mike Skliar on dobro.

We arrived at the cafe to find our names on the board outside and Mike's "Crazy Like a Fox" playing on the CD player inside.

Mike Ford propels Mike Skliar's jazzy version of the Dylan standard.
