In November of 2019, in between episodes 6 and 7 of Bootleg Series, our primary hard drive crashed. And it could not be recovered. After a series of attempts to revive it (all failed), we bought a new drive, and the first two things we recorded were a set of lengthy free jams. Since the pandemic's hit, I started thinking more about this session, and how much I feel it represents us purely and our sound so innocently, at our most emotive. It's true and honest free rock, and I'm proud to give it the attention it deserves. The cow is a stock photo, and Buford is the King.
