www.baddogblues.comI got my copy a couple of days ago.
My initial reactions are:

Positive things:
The band are sounding very enthusiastic and its a very good performance.
Sound quality is much better than the hall of Fame CD.

Negative things:
I feel that Norda's flute playing is far too precise for this type of music.
Possibly a Jazz flute player would have been a better choice.
