said gigs, and pretend you were at them too!) Essentially the features
will cover setlists, reviews of the concerts, the motives behind them,
and discussion of exactly why the gigs are considered classics.

There is an ongoing project to revamp the
song database taking more account of
the different versions of the songs out there. The structural changes have
mostly been made, but (as with the Release Database) there is a
substantial amount of work to be done on the actual data going into the
