compilation note:

With a band creating such diverse styles of jams, there will never be a consensus on what their best jams or moments or whatever are. What this is is a compilation of some of MY favorite jams from the year. The only rules were that I wanted to make it as much like a show as possible (which meant no repeated songs), and I tried to steal from as many shows as I could (which meant small, continuous chunks of music, though I cheated with the inverted Astronaut) and only those with circulating audience recordings. And obviously, it's stuff _I_ like, so for me that means a lot of melodies/jams to get stuck in your head.

While obviously most shows don't run 4 hours, it's really a measure of just how well the band played in its first full year with its new drummer, Allen Aucoin. And I think it's a testament to the band just how hard it was to come up with these selections. And I think you'll all agree after listening to this that you can't help but imagine the need for a second encore, because no one would ever want a show like this to end.

Because it's a compilation, some of the transitions between segments are sloppy, and for that I apologize. However, for those of you who absolutely NEEEED the breakdown, a tracklist is included. I recommend you seek out the entirety of these selections, because a lot of these jams are smack in the middle of absolutely amazing shows/sets that you may not know about.
