My father was famous for posting for amusing historical photographs while at Hadrian's Wall or other historic spots while traveling. This statue of Cervantes in historic Toledo just begged an update. Digital systems had not taken over my tours yet, so the backing recordings of my sets were on CDr and any documentation I was making was using a tape deck still at this point. The iPod breakthrough was still in the winds at this point.

I put Galicia into my yearly tours of Spain. Within a few years it would become the focus of a pair of two week tours yearly. This is the second release from a tour schedule of playing live shows in Spain which would not only become a feature of my a new purpose for Bodycocktail.

Every live tour features 45 minutes or so of new songs so releases have two new purposes they never had previously. They are merchandise for selling live ~ when I bring my most recent works it's a showcase of my prolific nature and an income stream to help offset travel costs. More importantly they are a source of future live songs.
