That's true.  I'll call the Vegas Job show their "re-conception" (a quick 
one), and the four Blues to the Bush shows the rebirth (it was a long 
labor).  I was mistakenly thinking the London shows came before the Chicago 
ones, though.  In any case, 10 years ago today there was a very cool show in 
Shepherd's Bush.

No doubt the best era since Moon died.
