The vinyl on this was a bit noisy, but I knuckled down and pulled off every click I could find. Unfortunately there was no cue sheet, but you get a 300 dpi scan of the disc label.

Track #10 is a song that does not appear on any of Sea Level's official releases. Hence the title is a guess. If anybody knows for sure about this song, please post a comment.

Chuck Leavell joined the Allman Brothers Band in 1972, when the group moved away from the twin-lead guitar sound in the wake of Duane Allman's death. He was with them until the band had one of their break-ups in 1976, at which point he went full time with Sea Level. Sea Level's albums mixed long jazz rock instrumentals with shorter funk-rock-pop songs...and never put out a live album.

Chuck Leavell went on to play on a dozen or so albums by the Rolling Stones and also win the coveted Georgia Tree Farmer of the Year Award not one but two times.

Many thanks to draftervoi for all his efforts and providing this file set through his Voodoo Wagon blog.
