Format: MP3 Music Verified Purchase
More great live Big Country performances, especially River of Hope & 1000 Yard Stare. Is this the end of the Rarities series? If so, massive thanks to Tony Butler for releasing all this magnificent music! :)

!HOWEVER! All the tracks downloaded from Amazon have digital noise right near the end so that the performance segues are ruined. Really bad. At first, I thought it was an iTunes-import error, but the glitch is in the origianl source files. I don't see an easy way to alert Amazon of this and get new downloads, so I'll try to contact customer service for an answer...

UPDATE: Amazon Customer Service was very helpful (if a little difficult to reach!) and reset the purchase so that I could download them all again. The files received the second time, while still not perfect, are very listenable. A few tracks still have a noticeable *glitch* at the very end, but this can be greatly reduced after iTunes import by making it a gapless album, or even adding a 1 second cross-fade in playback. Perhaps because this is a live album from more than one source, the original disc contained transitions that did not translate well to making individual downloadable tracks.

Here is how to contact Customer Service:
The options available are e-mail, phone (they call you, and the RIGHT AWAY is right away!) or chat options available.

Thanks to [...] for the help!! :)
