Show Notes
This special "BIG" 3-CD collection features the songs and performances that I felt were the highlights of the SCI sets from 2005 "Big Summer Classic" tour. These selections include SCI standards, as well as a number of "encore" collaborations with the members of Umphrey's McGee, New Monsoon, Yonder Mountain String Band, Spearhead, and of course, Keller Williams. It was impossible to include EVERYTHING, and many great collaborations had to be left out due to time constraints. I've done my best to capture a taste of what went down at the Big Summer Classic, and I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoyed putting it together.

    "I agree with that dude this show is WEAK compared to most shows i have seen or listened to they just dont seem tight like they did this past weekend in Atlanta. I was actually kinda pissed that i payed 10 bucks to download this show. I would avoid it if your a somewhat dedicated Cheese Fan. What the hell was the part in Ramblin man where Franti sang, that was awful, the crowd doesnt even get into it. I like Franti but he gets just too damn liberal sometimes. The posers will love this show. So pose away and ill see you in San Fran"

    "Am I the only one who is willing to say that this band has been going downhill for years. Ive seen them almost 50 times and after a series of dissapointing shows. (with the best show Ive ever seen in the middle 7/5/02) I decided to stop. I "Went Big" at 7/8/05 almost 3 years later, and not impressed. The vibe was great and the other bands rocked but the cheese did not. They do have their moments, don`t get me wrong. They still shake my universe from time to time. Some of the songs on this compilation are painful at best and often I feel embaraced for them. Like a once brilliant author now unable to for a coherent sentance. Im not looking for perfection, but the lack of passion and energy at times is very dissapointing. The jams seem uninspired and very boring. The changes within the songs rarely hit the mark, and only leave me wanting more. Call me arrogant and ungrateful but this is how i feel about recent Cheese. My first show was 11/27/99. Now that was a show. Summer 2000 was great. Portland and San Fran NYE in 01 and 02 were incredible. The songs on this comp definitely lack alot of what i found appealing about this band."

    "good stuff man"

    Cheese for life 9/1/2005 9:35:14 PM

    "this was a great tour, i wish i could have been at every show. after reading some of the negative review, i have determined some people have some real issues, cheese `rocks the house` every time, and anyone who isn`t danceing from begining to end needs to get off thier asses and dance! thanks for the two great nights at red rocks and i look forward to danceing to the greatest shit i know next year!"

    "what i love about the travelogues is they capture the feel of the tours they represent...the taste, the time of year, the times we are living in and what stage SCI is in...Cheese to me has evolved into the new doorway to the "IT" factor we all search for...i am never disappointed after an incident...this summer was a fun feel, just listen to `jelly fish` or `franklins` or `lively up` and you can feel the happy vibe...thanks Larry Fox for great selections!
