    What does 34th and 8th refer to? Madison Square Garden? (which is a block away)

    maybe a different city. . .

    38th & 8th is referring the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC. The Cd's were taken from live shows that were performed there.

    EDIT...

    Here's a pretty cool article on the album

    Did anyone else pre-order it?

    I got the package with the t-shirt, double cd, and special dvd for $27.00. Great deal.

    Too bad it's still a month away from shipping.

    I haven't ordered it yet... I'm still debating. I'll get around to it one of these days. I'll be in Florida by the time it ships and we just found a place to rent so I will now have an address to have it sent to.

    I got my limited edition copy (#2994 of 6000) of 34th & 8th last week and was kinda disappointed. Marc's voice didn't sound all that great.

    For me, the live disc of theirs to get it would be the Any Time Now double disc.

    I did score a t-shirt and a bonus DVD by pre-ordering it, so it's not all bad.

    I didn't get the special addition so I picked mine up on Sunday at Best Buy. I think it's a good album. You can't go wrong with a 15 minute version of Crazy Game of Poker :) So Moved On, Old Man Time and Who's Chariot all sounded good. I think your right about Any Time Now being a better live disc.... 38th & 8th is still a album I can listen to over and over.

    I'm not trying to hijack this thread but OAR is the most boring band i've ever witnessed. Nothing original about them and the lyrics are just plain awful.

    to each his own I guess. I started listening to them a few years ago becuase I'd hadn't heard anything like them before and really liked their sound. They are a great band live... you ever see them? I saw them a Summerfest last year in Milwaukee and thought they put on a really good show. Thier lyrics are about life, man so don't knock'em :wink:

    I wouldn't knock you for liking them, i'm not like that. I just thought they were a cheesy, frat type band. I don't get into DMB or anything like that, but to each his own. I'm more into songwriters and bands like that. Wilco/Ryan Adams/Frusciante.
