Page - Sony's websight feedback page. I think if everyone asks for
live MO it might make it more likely to come out. So send some feedback
to these guys! Remind them over and over that LTS was #5 on the downbeat
jazz chart the first few weeks it came out., Tell them again and again
MO has always been a big seller and the release of live material will surely
sell just as well as everything else they have put out before! Send snail
