Sarah Slean playing Angel with Moxy Früvous (Audio)

A decade old recording of Sarah Slean playing her song Angel with Moxy Früvous providing the groove has been posted on the Internet Music Live Archive.  The song is from her album Universe and is rarely played live especially with a band.

The recording is from February 21st 1999 at Lee's Palace. The second track on the embedded player contains Sarah's comical introduction to the stage by Moxy Früvous around the 3 minute mark. A reference is made to Kevin who might be referring to Kevin Fox. The full Moxy Früvous concert and all the details can be found here.
