“Doggy Bag“- The Incredible Casuals- Sept. 3rd (Labor Day), 2006, recorded by Chris Blood, mixed by Rikki Bates and Chandler Travis
Well, we got kind of sentimental, as we tend to around Memorial Day and July 4th and Labor Day, and wanted to tell you all how very much we miss rocking for you all at the Beachcomber on those days and all those other summer Sundays as well. As it happens, we’d just unearthed a multi-track from Labor Day, 2006, and just sort of dove in for no good reason other than just missing the good old days. It has been fun listening, and also a bit of a surprise to me that I never really dove in before, as far as mixing Casuals live tapes; if I’m not mistaken (and lord knows I could be), all of our past live releases have been board mixes, whatever came out good instantly, so it has been fun actually doing some real mixing for a change! We didn’t pick this one because we remembered it being a particularly great show, it just sort of appeared, and we started monkeying around with it earlier this week and it was fun enough that we may put out a bunch more of it, but for now, happy Memorial Day, we miss you!
