There is also a bonus disc that was intended to only go out to radio but because we had some other cool stuff hanging around we decided to add it to this promo CD and make it available to all for a limited time. It features radio mixes of "Where I Come From", "Barracuda Moon" and "Higher" along with "Pourhouse Jelly" an instrumental jam played and recorded at sound check at The Pour House down in Charleston, SC in '07, "Let it Grow" a Falzarano tune played and recorded at sound check at the Shawnee Cave in '06. We later added some masterful Hammond organ playing by Professor Louie to those two tracks. Luckily our ace sound man at the time Tim Stiegler captured these tunes because we only played them that one time, we just started jamming and got lucky. The remaining four tracks "Louisiana Lady", "Peggy O", "Truck Driving Man" and "Dirty Business" are from the DVD/CD we put out in '06, Live At Turkey Trot Acres . We couldn't fit them onto the CD back then so we're happy to get those out in the world now. We hope you enjoy both discs!
