released February 7, 2008

These recordings come from a series of concerts in Boulder, Colorado between December 2007 and February 2008, made at Café Babu, Folsom Street Coffee, Amante Coffee Downtown, and The Laughing Goat Café. I recorded everything onto my laptop during the show from a stage submix out of a single mono channel on my loop pedal, so postproduction adjustment of levels was impossible. Consequently, there are some differences in the balance between voice and guitar, as well as EQ, from track to track - artifacts of slight variations in my set-up from show to show. This album features several unique performances of my standard repertoire, as well as my first forays into the improvised loopscapes that are now an essential part of every concert. A mash-up of experimentation and design, this collection reflects the quivering balance between choice and contingency that defines an evening on the Love Without End Tour. Some of it's pretty, and some of it's not. But it's all Love.
