*Claude was off-stage as this song began, so the rest of the band improvised something that "kinda sounded like Beat the Retreat by Richard Thompson, but it never became that" (K. Russell, personal communication, July 10, 2009)

**Kevin played mandolin instead of electric guitar, and Claude played acoustic guitar instead of piano during this faster, "bluegrassy" arrangement (K. Russell, personal communication, July 10, 2009)

  1. It was an outstanding show indeed. Super high energy and it looked like the boys were really having a good time. In particular, it was great to see Jimmy enjoying himself and it appears he's trying to kick that cigarillo habit again which ain't easy, so keep up the good work Jimmy! .... Thanks to the Gourds and Shinyribs (who put on a brilliant show last night) for two outstanding nights and hope the shows in Portland are fun and memorable. It was great to meet some new folks here and look forward to the next time...
