Recorded and broadcast way back when, an actual back yard barbeque Nick Hill had set up live on air at the radio station, WFMU.

watermelon and everything... This BBQ record nicely captures the sweetness of the season when Giant Sand were turning into something else.

Nick Hill, An old buddy from Brooklyn, had an important radio show there as well as harbouring tremendously good taste.

Once when the odds were tremendously against Howe making a plane outa NY on time, he turned the car around and fetched a 2 man kayak.

They went kayaking in the Hudson river instead. "Have you ever seen New York city from a kayak? nothing but stunning.

And wonderfully spooky, zipping under those giant rotting piers too. That was Nick Hill." He was the fellow responsible for presenting this record and getting it recorded and broadcasted way back when.

This collection of songs was recorded by WFMU over two live sessions for he Music Faucet' show in the summer of 1994 and 1995.

This 25th anniversary reissue CD also features two bonus tracks, er Ropes' and olling Stones I Am' which featured originally as a not so ecret track'.
