This is a newly remastered version of the 2000 album. It's a lot louder, plus a little more guts in the low end a little more crispness all around.
With the exception of the Erwin Park pieces, all of the music on this disc was improvised live ("pulled out of thin air", so to speak). None of what we played was worked out in advance. You are hearing it exactly as it was played, with no overdubs, editing or re-mixing whatsoever. Before you listen to this music for the first time, you can use the following notes as sort of a road map through the disc, or you can save this section for later and in the spirit in which it was played, jump into the music head-first without a net.
