Episode Four features a scene of the recently rediscovered audio of the play version of Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine by Ben Tanzer. It was recorded at Stray Dog Recording Co. here in Chicago and I promptly lost the master disc. Hence the title "The Lost Tapes", but it has been rediscovered and the audio will be leaked out over the next few months.
