Release Notes

• Limited Edition of 500 copies
• All previously unreleased recordings
• One of the Rockadrome label’s most popular artists

Excavated from the archives of a long-time roadie comes this double album collection of live recordings made over several nights in Topeka, Kansas in 1974. Celebrated Iowa hard rock trio Truth & Janey are captured here doing what they did best, stretching out into raw, extended jams featuring heavy guitar action from Billylee Janey, booming fuzz bass from Steve Bock, with Denis Bunce locked in the zone behind his drum kit. ‘Midnight Horsemen,’ originally released as as 3-minute single in 1972, is featured here as a side-long 22-minute jam—a prime example of vintage Truth and Janey. Included are several songs previously unreleased in any way (live or studio), as well as early versions of ‘Down the Road’ and ‘My Mind,’ from their 1976 underground hard rock classic debut album, “No Rest for the Wicked.”
