additional information
This CD was sent as a bonus for those who'd ordered the Special Edition Package of the live Australian recordings from DiscLive Network.

The three interview segments (which are roughly chronological) were edited together from two separate Redbeard interviews: one from 1991 to promote Real Life and the other, recorded in 2013, to promote Celebrate: The Greatest Hits + compilation. This leads to an odd emphasis on historical subjects e.g. the attention given to the writing of See The Lights and the band's former Bonnie Wee Studios.

Despite this, the interviews are extremely enjoyable, humourous and relaxed and Redbeard gets some new anecdotes and stories from Jim.
