77: It’s A Wonderful Pod

It’s A Wonderful Pod: Puttin’ a Bow on 2018

Bonus Tracks and Deep Cuts

Let’s bring good ol’ 2018 to a close in style with a selection of bonus tracks, which in our case means “shows we really dug and never found the chance to play ‘em this year, or they were in an episode that got cut for one reason or another.”

In the case of these four selections, we think the wait was WELL worth it. After Harvey and Jeff get caught up with their lives and holiday plans, they charge headlong into a ripping performance from Tipitina’s in 1996, followed by some more Paris 98 heat, including a really cool and unique “Space Wrangler” intro and outro. Jeff follows up with bonus tracks from an aborted “Travelin’ Light Tour” episode that – no surprise here – highlights MORE sandwiches from that great tour. If the band could bear the July heat in Mississippi, so can you; if the band can put up with ANOTHER Carrot Top sit in, so can you. Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Merry Whatever Else ya buncha freaks! Enjoy!
