1997 Ani Difranco concert at Tinley Park, Illinois

THANK YOU to YouTube user Francoapple for posting this! Francoapple posts the greatest live Ani Difranco footage and I am incredibly greatful for this gem.

I've heard many of the songs from this 1997 concert when I downloaded them from Napster many moons ago. Although all of these songs are good, my favorite are surprisingly the two covers. Difranco sings Most of the Time by Bob Dylan and Do Re Mi by Woodie Guthrie. In fact, I find Difranco's rendition of Most of the Time is better than Dylan's original. No disrepsect to the King of Folk.

For those of you who miss the company of Andy Stochansky, this footage will be a real treat. The year of this show takes place in 1997, so Stochansky is still on the bill.
