For years I felt that knowing a concert was being recorded would remove the immediacy and spontaneity from it, along with that feeling of conversation that I usually feel with audiences.
My friends convinced me that we always have too much fun in a concert-hall for that to happen, and that I ought to let more people in on the fun, so in May and June of 2006 I recorded some concerts I was doing in Maine. This album is a sampling of them.
Recorded at the Strand Theatre, Rockland, Maine; The Chocolate Church, Bath, Maine; Center Theatre, Dover-Foxcroft, Maine; and Johnson Hall, Gardiner, Maine.
A special thanks to our loyal audiences for singing so beautifully and for providing the authentic cough-tracks.
Recorded, engineered and mastered by Bruce Boege, Limin Music, Northport, Maine.
With additional recording by Rick Crampton and Bradley Truman
Mixed by Bruce Boege, Gordon Bok, and Anne Dodson
