I find the setlist for this show to be fantastic. IMO, "Riverboat"
alone is worth the "price of admission." The sound quality is
average - definitely listenable, but not without some quirks.
There is some sporadic noise, which to might be some form of
digi-noise? Also, there are occasional changes in the recording
volume. However, I don't find that they impact one's overall
listening enjoyment. These discs come to you as they came to me.
That said, I hope you enjoy them!

Are there any good sounding recordings of E.C with the Confederates? Or is the one on the KoA bonus disc the only one?

Chrille,
To the best of my knowledge there are no high-quality soundboard-ish recordings of EC and the Confederates in circulation, although I wish there were. However, it is worth having at least one of the Boston or New York (and I believe there is a halfway decent one from the UK, Manchester maybe?). The Confederates shows are the only ones where you can hear KofA in all its glory!

EC and Confederates boots

"Do the Rhumba" is the best sounding one which features the Confederates, IMHO. It's from a TV broadcast.

Ahhh, good point Pup. "Rhumba" is a pretty nice recording. The trade-off is that the setlist is kind of weak (at least I think so, for whatever that's worth :) ).

Bumpadumpadus for the newer-than-me newbie's request for said setlist.
