00:00 Phil's Farm (08.30.06 - Minnesota State Fair, St. Paul, Minnesota) 16:43 40's Theme 25:41 Eat (08.20.06 - Hartwood Amphitheatre, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) 30:20 Let Me Go Home, Whiskey (08.30.06 - Minnesota State Fair, St. Paul, Minnesota) 33:48 2x2 47:29 Atmosfarag > 51:47 "Jimmy Stewart" > 57:46 Atmosfarag (08.31.06 - Minnesota State Fair, St. Paul, Minnesota) 59:04 All in Time (08.19.06 - Cannery Row Revival - Mercy Lounge, Nashville, Tennessee) Total Broadcast Length 74:54 Notes: Phil's Farm is used as a launching pad for a progressive dance section that segues smoothly back into the closing section. Brendan's outro solo is undoubtedly one of his strongest to date, enhanced by the rest of the band following along the way. Let Me Go Home, Whiskey is adapted from Asleep at the Wheel's cover of the Amos Wilburn jazz tune. Atmosfarag, for the first time, was extended far beyond any boundaries that had been set before.
