    Their longtime manager, Nick John, recently passed away & in his honor, they recorded his favorite song.

    It's cold outside.
    That was a pretty cool tribute to their friend.

    Good on them

    Is it me or are there a lot of weird "skips" in that recording? E.g., 7:22-7:26. At 7:25 it's like someone hit the CD player and made it skip. Quite a few others throughout the song, for example 5:25-5:28, at 5:27 another skip. Not complaining at all - it's a quality rendition of the song and I do like this band. Maybe there was a problem with the upload encoding or something.

    I'm getting the skipping too.

    EDIT: This version is from a vinyl copy, so the record skipped in those parts.

    Sometimes these skips are intentional so you don’t get a clean free download. They are selling this to raise funds.

    wow, that was great. a little surprised that the LZ version is actually "heavier" though, i was expecting at least as much "oomph!" in the guitars towards the end as the original.

    I liked it. Thought it would be bombastic and loud. Pretty cool how dynamic it was and relatively un-busy it was,

    I get confused sometimes between Troy and Brann.

    Brent is easier to pick out.
