O.K., everybody says it--'you sound so different live than on your records!' so I thought it was high time to capture some of these songs to tape so people can take home a bit of live music passion from the band. On this particular collection, I pulled what I thought were the most inspired performances from three different shows, two of which were on the road, and one from the Worthless Pursuit album release party. We didn't go back and fix any wrong notes or even try and slick the thing up at all, so it's just us pluggin'in and playing loud! I give full praise to the band for flowing along with all the changes- many times they had no idea what song we were about to do or how many measures before the chorus or if we were gonna do the big break in Down Goes the Day-yeah, I'll take all the blame for that. But I will say that if the performer is on the edge of his seat, maybe the audience is too. No safety net--I kinda like that.

Also, this cd is not a big produced recording, so please know it's rather bootlegged but still well worth listening to. Mr. Travis Brockway recorded the Olathe, Kansas and Gulf Breeze, Florida shows directly from the board and Mr. Geoff Lupton recorded the Hard Rock Cafe show from the board to mini-disc as well, and neither of them had any idea I would want to release the tapes later. So I hope you enjoy the tunes and keep this as another chapter in your ever-growing Chris Taylor music collection.

Thanks for listening--Chris
