Another super show here. One of my favorites. I have two sets of both the Early and Late Shows for this night. According to a notebook I kept back in the mid-90's one set was
2nd gen the other 3rd gen. For whatever reason I did not mark the actual tapes. I compared the tapes and picked what I think is the better sounding version. They ran a bit fast, so I corrected the speed. After many sessions messing around with the recording I am now very
happy with the end result. It sounds great ! A very even mix of all players and Don. The bass sounds very nice here. ( Keeping in mind that I listen to music on stereos most all of the time. Then again, I am listening to this show now on my pc as I type all this and it sounds sweet. ) Easily among the best sounding of the 1977 tapes.
This was the first tour that Robert Williams was playing drums in the band. Denny Walley is still in the band and the version of " China Pig / Hoboism " here is amazing. Among the best live performances I have heard. The way Don throws his voice all around is just crazy. This is another show in which Don is in what seems to be a very good mood. Relaxed. Also very chatty. The banter throughout is really great and often funny. When an audience member asks where is ( what happened ) to Drumbo, Don offers up an interesting answer. Don also really enjoyed the chocolate pie at this club. Hahaha. Nice.
" On Tomorrow " get cut a bit short due to an electrical malfunction.
The ending of "Owed T' Alex" is cut short due to a tape flip.
ENJOY THE SHOW.
