Collen would has gone on to explain how this latest release came about and why they decided on a live album and DVD. “We recorded every night of our 2016 tours, east and west coast, expecting to pull out the best performances from different cities. But we managed to capture one of those special, magical nights where all the stars fall into place in Pawling, NY at Daryl’s House. This whole album was recorded that night. It was so relaxed but we were so on fire at the same.”
