This is SO GOOD. I'm hearing backing vocals I never even knew existed. So much more enjoyable. Anyway I can download this version without using a YouTube downloader?

I know that "Rock For Freedom" is obviously Niagara Falls, NY, but I was the one that yelled out the magic words at that show and I recall it being May 6th, 2006 my first Ben Folds concert. I feel so special that he chose the rock this bitch rendition that I initiated.

I was a sucker for the super deluxe box-set and couldn't turn it down, but it has a major flaw. No Lyrics. Does the standard CD have a lyric booklet? I'm a bit ticked that the DVD/CD Book doesn't have a full set of lyrics. Anyone else dig that?
