Well, it was a great night at a place we always had a good time at, the original Harry's in Hyannis, and my old partner Chris Blood did a terrific job recording it (really the only time we got halfway serious about recording the band live.) I always thought it would make a great album, but after making a couple of tentative passes at it 15 years or so ago, I got side-tracked with other things and never got around to it, partly because live albums have never really been my cup of tea, and we'd put out quite a bit of live stuff when the CTP started out on the RadioBall series, but most of that was in lo-fi (our patented Horrend-O-Phonic system, which was basically an old beat-up seventies Sony cassette recorder from before they turned into boom boxes- fabulous in a way, but definitely lo-fi), so it's nice to be finally getting around to this, as the CTP from that era was really a pretty amazing and entirely reckless live band...
Further more: we'll be adding tracks to this album randomly over the next year or so; we figure at these prices (free!) we can take as long as we want, and in fact change anything well after the fact, completely haphazardly and with absolutely no regard for the usual rules. More tracks will get here when they get here, and things can change utterly at any time- SURPRISE!
