AG is a good recording of a complete 1996 EC/SN show. I have not heard the other two.

Aging Gracefully is one of my favorites . . .

King of Americana is mostly studio demos/outtakes from the King of America era. Some really good stuff, especially the covers one disc 1.

Some Like it Hot is an old one . . . from I think the Philadelphia Hot Club in 77.

Aging Gracefully a 2 CD set, from an FM broadcast of a show that features in the EC&SN Live box set. As is Between Wisdom & Murder.

i checked out the address snarling pup posted.
the site says these are bootlegs.
can these actually be gotten or what?
i have yet to see any of these titles for sale as i browse the internet.
are they even worth getting? i thought bootlegs were recorded from live concerts illegally.

Yes, these titles are bootlegs, and so strictly speaking are illegal.

The sound quality of some live bootlegs can be very good - especially if captured from soundboard or FM broadcasts.

Availability is limited. You can sometimes download them (Kazaa, SoulSeeker, UseNet), traded, or bought at record fairs etc.

Although I don't recommend you actually put out your cash for these recordings, you can usually find some bootleg EC titles listed on ebay.

You might want to check out the traders instead. Some will trade for blanks and postage.
