A confession: I was late to come around to this show, and had already heard almost half of the shows from Fall '97 before I downloaded the Hampton '97 auds. I like to play the know-it-all music critic, and when some book/record/film/tv show gets recommended to me too many times, I can become increasingly reluctant to follow up it. Does that happen to anyone else? Well anyways, you probably don't need another review to convince you that this is a great show, especially since it is currently among the highest-rated shows listed on the .net. All I have to say is that I would have paid the price of the entire boxed-set just to own the remastered SBD the *first* set of this show.
