12Walking the Dog
Midnite Hour>WTD>Big Boss Man to open the show-Wow!; Walkin' worth it just to hear Jerry sustain the vocal on "Pretty maids all in a Roooooooowww!"
Jerry's voice is bad but great guitar playing.
5Me and My Uncle
Swanky version from a hot first set of rarities
Awesome cover, more in style of revolution 1 than revolution
8Ain't Superstitious (Meet Me on the Bottom)
Bluesy night at the Spectrum. This has some heat whole show big energy > Althea cool down.
22100000 Tons of Steel
Big time bluesy show so Brent's train song fits into the night Jerry's vox is burnt but good energy this night.
excellent mid 80s Althea,excellent ripping solo
5Eyes Of The World
Crazy killer fast version
Literally tripped over this jam then, now more figuratively....
Skeletons playing Zylaphones....
