I have two commercially-produced audio tapes by AEd the Bard, including one
that has "Cookies, Music and Sex".  I'll check them tonight and find out
who produced them, in case you want to order your own copies.  (I should
warn you, though, that, IMHO, the tapes sound kind of "muddy". (But maybe
they've remixed it since then; it was a couple of years ago.)

AEd often comes earlier to Pennsic, and sets up a Great Big White tent
where he hosts really great bardic circles almost every night.
