Re: Live Beyond The Spheres New Live Album

P.S. Does anyone know who is making the back vocals on APAFS - they're absolutely great? :o If it's from the Dutch show that would be me :mrgreen: (but I thought the keyboard player usually did the backup vocals on APAFS) Still need to get the cd! >_< (but something to look forward to, still)
