This album is comprised of songs recorded over 3 nights during the 2002 St. Patrick's Day weekend in our home town of Boston, MA. This is something we've wanted to do for a while: to capture the show live, to capture the audience, the atmosphere, the blood, the sweat, the tears, and the beers. Every time we do a new studio album, there's always one thing missing - YOU - the most important member of the band; our inspiration and motivation, our best backup singers and sometime lead singers. Well, this time we got you. That's right, 3 shows and 75 plus songs recorded. You were great on all 75; the 25 that we didn't screw up are on this record. -Dropkick Murphys.
