Live with the Whole Fam Damily
Recorded live on May 15, 1982 at Ahab's Whale, Spokane, WA This album is for our loyal friends whose enthusiastic spirit can be felt and heard at our performances. Our hope is that one day all people may enjoy this same sense of togetherness. 'Make a live album...make a live album' our friends cry out. We have heard this often but have never cared much for live recordings because it is almost impossible to get a clean, accurate sound because of room noise and acoustics. Secondly, to recapture the full magic of a live performance on a recording is usually less satisfying than photographing the Grand Canyon with an 'Instamatic'...ya just gooa be there! Well anyway, here it is...nothing fancy. Just a real fun interchange between the band and a group of loyal beer sluggers we call the 'Fam Damily'. Many hard-core pub dwellers may resent the underlying spirituality, and on the other hand, there will be some Bible thumpers who won't be able to see beyond the alcohol and cigarette smoke, but at any rate there is a lot of love on this plate of vinyl (CD)...we hope you will enjoy! THE BAND.
