This is a re-upload of a post I originally made in January 2009. It was requested by oui. Very sorry it has taken so long, but I have only just looked through the requests section in quite some time. Better late than never, as we say in the UK.

I actually posted an MP3 version of this concert, but this is a flac copy provided by LYM. I hope he is happy for me to provide my own Rapidshare links of his original share.
