Quote from: ranyart on Jul 19, 2023, 12:40 PMThis is a beautiful statement from JJ that somehow got lost in my junk mail, so thanks for sharing it MyYinzerJacket! My wife is a school counselor and she deals with mental health issues all of the time, so we're both painfully aware of how troubles of this sort impact people's lives and how important it is for people to talk about their situations so others can hopefully learn from them. Thanks for opening your heart and soul to us Jim!The other thing that struck me about this note is I think we have an answer as to why MMJ doesn't officially release more live shows. I get why Jim feels the way he feels about past performances, and I would imagine that many or even most musicians/artists feel the same way, but it's a real bummer because I love MMJ's treatment of the three official shows that have been released and Okonokos when compared to audience recordings. Don't get me wrong because I am super happy and grateful that we have MMJ fans taking the time and effort to capture these shows, but it sure would be nice to get more MMJ polished official live show releases.
