No music at all, just a lot of talk.9/8/1999
This disc would be misrepresented by being listed in any column having to do with musical performances. There are no, I repeat, no musical performances on this disc. Instead of Miles Davis and Lady Day entertaining us, we get the lady who put rolls of toilet paper in the johns. This is a 20/20 like news story telling about the creation of the festival,not a musical disc. Very Disappointing!!!
