From the 2nd Day On The Green, part of a Playin' triptych- best of '76!

The center of a Ollin Arrageed > Fire > Iko triptych. Included as a bonus track on the "Shakedown" CD. Just exactly perfect.

April 17, 1984
Niagara Falls Convention Center
This was my first show (thanks to some older cousins who let me tag along). A nice version for the era, but I wouldn't steer a newb here instead of the greatness of fresh '75-77.
