Yes, there is a CD version of this album! Mostly I've sold it only at shows, but it's popular. ONE CAVIAT: I don't have CD licensing for "The S-100 Bus," so you have to download that separately. But if you go to the individual track it's a FREE download, so it's kind of included - you just have to visit the website to get it. ^_^
Includes unlimited streaming of Cracksman Betty (Remixed and Remastered)
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
In every world that matters, the city of Kenmore, north of Seattle, on Lake Washington, started life as a logging and sawmill town. Logs moved out by water, of course, and boards by barge. But while small, the town mattered enough that the first - and for a while, only - improved road between Vancouver in British Columbia and Seattle to the south ran right through it.
Eventually, the logging ran thin, and the mill slowed down. But just as the second-growth timber was logged out... prohibition hit.
And Kenmore found itself on the improved road north and south, on the edge of a lake, far enough north to be partly ignored, far enough south to be a day trip, and with a clear view of Victory Boulevard half the way down to Seattle, should the Treasury department boys feel like sniffing around.
So Kenmore became Prohibition party central, famous for "country dining," by which we, of course, mean "country drinking." Such a town needs suppliers! Many suppliers. Brave suppliers, young men who need more money than maybe they have sense. And Paddy Murphy... well... Paddy Murphy, that fine young man, why, he answered the call.
Paddy Murphy, everyone knew that boy - he was a fine, young bootlegger. Not the brightest, necessarily, but he had friends and contacts, and was more than his share fond of adventure and danger.
Eventually it caught up with him, sad to say. A risk of the business. And this is what happened _next_.
