Civic Arena

Real rock n roll right here- great show and a great rollicking AUD recording too..I like the rockin 78 style better than 77s...Donna and Bobby really go for it when the song cranks up.Great stuff.

Short but perfectly formed the Warfield and Radio City shows are wicked good.
I Need A Miracle

Hartford Civic Center

Short and sweet indeed- Bobby really cranks out the vocals on this number- great stuff from a great show- excellent AUD quality- MOTB recordings are so on point..better than an empty sounding SBD.

Cleveland Public Auditorium

A nice meandering stroll through the woods this one-really tight vocally and musically..Great stuff.
