Having released his critically acclaimed debut album, Arkansas Dave embarked on a tour across Europe, lasting 2 months and over 25 shows, reaching its pinnacle at Montreux Jazz Festival.

"After being on tour in Europe for over a month, at that point, the band was firing on all cylinders and we were more confident than ever to walk on that stage. This is the best representation of what my band and I sound like live. That’s why I chose to put this out as a live album."
- Arkansas Dave

"Playing Montreux Jazz Festival was absolutely the highlight of my career so far. To be able to release a live album from that show is an affirmation that this is what I’m meant to be doing with my life."
- Arkansas Dave

Track Name: Bad Water (Live)
Went down to the water,
On my knees to pray.
That dirty damned water,
Took my soul away.

Bad Water. x4

Bad water let me be,

Took my soul away from me.
Drown my sorrows,

Way down in the water so deep.

Bad water gonna get my soul.
Oh, bad water, gonna get my soul.
Gonna get my, gonna get my, gonna get my soul.

Bad water let me be,

Give my soul back to me.

I’ll go down in the water below.
Way down to fetch my soul.

Bad water, had water.

Gonna get my soul.

Bad water, had water.

Gonna get my soul.

Sometimes you just can’t walk away...
Track Name: Chocolate Jesus (Live)
Well, I don't go to church on Sunday
Don't get on my knees to pray
Don't memorize the books of the bible
I got my own special way
I know Jesus loves me
Maybe just a little bit more
Fall down on my knees every Sunday
At Zerelda Lee's candy store
Well, I've got to be a chocolate Jesus
Make me feel good inside
Got to be a chocolate Jesus
Keep me satisfied
Well, I don't want no Abba Zabba
Don't want no Almond Joy
There ain't nothing better
Suitable for this boy
Well, it's the only thing that can pick me up
It's better than a cup of gold
See, only a chocolate Jesus
Can satisfy my soul
When the weather gets rough and it's whiskey in the shade
It's best to wrap your savior up in cellophane
He flows…
