Les Claypool - Fancy DVD

Fancy is Les's first live concert DVD and shows his latest band at its peak performance. With long time associates Skerik on sax and Mike Dillon on vibes, marimba and percussion (both of Garage a Trois and Critters' Buggin), the band is rounded out by Cake drummer Paulo Baldi and multi-instrumentalist Gabby La La. Fancy was assembled using footage shot by a small group of devoted fans over the course of several performances. The audio is a combination of board tapes blended with audience or "tapers" recordings to give the piece the true "fan's perspective."

The 2006 tour was in support of Claypool's then current CD release Of Whales and Woe, and thus material from the album is favored here. Other songs are drawn from 2002's Purple Onion and the 1996 Interscope release Highball With the Devil.
