This is the SIXTEENTH in a series of Tim and Jim concerts that Tim’s wife, Susan, and I are releasing. 

Susan Ellis and I plan on releasing these shows one at a time, for as long as the material holds out. 

I remember this gig.

Tim and I were booked at this joint in The 'Couv called Charley's (a giant barn of a room).

The booker asked us for a full band. So we called Kevin and Jamin - two guys who we knew could step in with NO rehearsal and play a three-hour set with us. When you listen to this keep that in mind: NO rehearsal. That's a lot to ask of people, but those guys absolutely crushed it, no sweat.

It was eye contact and body language for cues, and Tim screaming at the top of his lungs "BACK TO THE TOP" "HERE COMES THE BRIDGE!" "LAY OUT HERE!!" 

Are there clams on this? Hell yes, there are.

We had NO rehearsal.

Does it matter? Not a bit.

The great Dennis Mincks did our sound that night and recorded this. After he mixed it down he gave us all a copies. However because it was a long set it wouldn't fit on a regular CD, so he gave us all CDRs with all the audio files.

I didn't listen to it, I just I placed it in my tape cupboard and forgot all about it.

Until a couple of weeks ago when I ran across it.

I listened and thought,

"Man...those guys were pretty good."

Please put this on very loud, and enjoy.

Tim's playing here is a masterclass.

RIP, buddy.
