Engineered by Jason with Caleb Townsend and Tiffany Camhi (who also took

Karina's also in 28 Degrees Taurus. Nick and Kris often join Gary for Gary War shows, and Gary also has the Roman Soldiers side project with Blank Dogs' Mike Sniper.The full set (streaming-only here via WFMU) contains a mix of tracks from Bobb's two official albums, Iron Curtain Innocence (1980) and Harvest of Dreams (1982), both reissued in 2007 by Secretly Canadian. "Angel Eyes", "The Camel Song", "Undercovers Man" and "Live Wire, Live Wire" are all later tunes that could previously only be found on Life Beyond the Doghouse (Orpheus Records 2002), an LP compiling Bobb's mid-80's solo recordings, some recordings with The Crippled Dog Band from 1986, and backed by The Violent Reactions in 1983. Orpheus Records is based in Denmark, more info here. The original "Oh Baby" is also a Crippled Dog Band song, originally sung by Rich McLaughlin (age 13) of The Kidds on Harvest of Dreams and sung here by Kris Thompson.
