"The name of the band tells all, ONCE, in the sense this band is existed only for this show, 1 show, 1 time... As you can see from the set list it is a covers' performance, some blues, some classics, some reggae, some rock, but this testify the ability of John Cipollina to adapt his great guitar style to every kind of music, showing us his versatility... This is unique, listening to it one more time before to upload this, I had a lot of fun, and I had the proof again of the immense talent of John playing his guitar... even if all of us know it..." - Fabio Nosotti

- The soundboard is missing about 8 seconds of the opening tuning and 3 seconds during the second part of "Mona", these has been patched in from the soundtrack. The last 49 seconds of "Mona" are missing.
- I did quite a lot of work on the levels for the soundboard and also applied some light noise reduction.
- I have eq'd the soundtrack to bring out the mids and highs.

Many thanks to Steve for letting me have a copy of this, and Doug for his help in making this wonderful document of John's musical gift available.
To Fabio for the soundboard and to Rick Martin who helped facilitate matters.
