_Mercedes Lackey Live_ (tape only)

Number 4 in the Firebird Performance Series


If you have this tape, why not mail me your comments (see below), and let people know what YOU think about it?

Jerry Cullingford ( This is about the only tape where you get to hear Misty herself singing (although she does sing some parts on a few of the other tapes).

Only a couple of the songs are Valdemar related, but they're all fun - especially if you've read the books some of them are based on. Misty gives each song a short introduction, and if you work with computers (reasonably likely, given that this is a Web page :-) then you should enjoy Threes Rev 1.1.
