Gandalf Murphy - 2000-12-02 - WDST Acoustic Breakfast
This is a promotional CD that I picked up at some point. I asked their current management about it. I got a shrug and a, "I dunno." This is one of the earliest live recordings that circulates among the fans. And, because it was professionally recorded, it's a jolly good one!
The song "Genius" is about the tortured artists out there - the Kurt Cobains of the world. Fame is a roller coaster. It'll toast ya.
"Talkin' To The Buddha" is one of their big religious numbers. It's very deep and non-denominational. Probably more about string theory than religion, come to think of it.
