What started out as an initiative to record one song turned into an all-out, free-for-all, studio recording session that lasted nearly two weeks. These are the results...
She Looked At Me *
That's What They Say
Difference of Opinion
Up & Down
Times Like These *
At The Half
Also included were an untitled partial new song (eventually part of Sooner Or Later) and a slew of DMB cover snippets (Help Myself, Crash, BOWA, Nancies, DIDO, STJL).

Where: The Anderson Tree Farm - Vicksburg, PA & The Half - Lewisburg, PA
When: Tree Farm : July 30 - August 9; The Half : August 10 - 12 / 1999
A total of four hours of tape were used to record these 13 songs. A completed version of each song listed on the tracklist was recorded at least once - some songs were recorded multiple times. (The outtakes were intended for the box set). When funding was cut short (i.e. the Andersons came back home), the band had to move the recording to their home studio (The Half) to finish the last few tracks. All songs were recorded on a Sony 8mm camcorder in the living rooms of each respective studio, er... house. Copies of the sessions may or may not be available in the future. Check out the old sounds page to see what Tree Farm Session clips used to be offered (but are unavailable due to Yahoo! bullshit).
