In this broadcast, Dump City and Anchor Drops receive extended improvisational treatments, stretching the boundaries of each. The band explores several different themes and layers in another fantastic rendition of Nothing Too Fancy. To close is the Ween-inspired, tongue-in-cheek Nopener.

With more room to work with, and selling out clubs along the east coast, songs like Mulche's Odyssey and Women Wine and Song were receiving extended improvisatory treatments. The opening cut Miss Tinkle's Overture is one of their most blistering to date, and the Black Sabbath covers sandwiched inside Ocean Billy relive some of the (in)famous Halloween 2004 show.
