About This Gig


This one was contributed by Gil Fuhrer, former co-owner of Safari Sam's in Huntington Beach, CA. It's an amazing recording that really captures them at what some might argue was their creative peak. It's also notable for the wide array of covers, treated with puppet-psychedelia and the smell of wet creosote. Here are the notes on the recording/encoding process.
