"Taking On Water"

Taking On Water was recorded on the evening of Friday, June 11th, 1992 at the Playwrights' Center in Minneapolis. It had been years since our first recording and people were threatening us with bodily injury if we didn't come out with a new recording. By this time we had a relatively large following, and some of them were violent so we bowed to the pressure from those people and produced this cassette. This, I think, is our best recording. We recorded three and a half hours of music and patter that evening, and ended up using just under 60 minutes music and 30 or so seconds of patter, so we may find time to mix down the other two hours some day, who knows. On this cassette you will find the one and only reggae version of "Step it out Mary," so watch for it.
