Is this the "The bottles are never empty at the Empty Bottle" recording I had a downloaded copy of awhile ago? Starts with a great version of Garden City Blues?


Yes! They play a million songs for a billion hours!


The version of That's Entertainment from that show is absolutely crazy. I've been listening to it a lot lately. The whole band are on fire and the solo in particular (at 2:06) is fucking nuts.

I went to the bother of uploading it, for anyone who wants to hear:



Hope that's OK...

You can really hear how important Michael's drumming was, too.


I remember that show pretty well. It went on forever.

It always bugs me when there's some set time you have to stop. What if you don't want to stop?

Thanks for posting that. We sound good!

If Andy has sleeper hits/underrated songs in the Silkworm catalog, That’s Entertainment would be near the top of the list for me. That version is damn great.

Hello, "That's Entertainment" starts with a guitar solo.

There is no introductory act of casual Cohen on that one!

Yeah, but 2:06 is kinda the "solo" solo.

You're right, though. The amount of extended guitar riffing making up the song, plus the tragic character in the story has me joking with myself that it's their Cortez the Killer.
