This one was a little different from my other live recordings in that it's... well... not really live. I originally recorded it in February, after I saw Tim's live orchestra show in Melbourne, but decided not to post it, as his comedy relies a lot on surprise, and I didn't want to spoil the show for others. But inevitably, I went back to it and decided the vocals were really quite bad, so decided I'd try again. I ended up re-recording the guitar once, and the vocals 7 or 8 times, but the mix presented here is the original guitar track, and a mish-mash of 3 or 4 of the vocal takes (including a large part of the original), so I decided it's close enough to be called "live".
In the process, I remembered why I prefer to just do a single live recording. But I guess sometimes you just gotta try stuff out.
