Beautiful a capella outro here and check out Bobby's polyrythmic harmolodism during the last solo section for a treat.

Lazy Lightnin' -> Supplication

High energy and zigzagging, this is a fast one. Supplication is tons of fun, even if they don't quite stick the landing.

Brilliant rise to a climactic finish. Jerry soloing like a man possessed behind sweet Bobby/Donna '76 harmonies. Nice one.

Up and jumping show opener from the first note. Keith's solo is brilliant.

Samson and Delilah

Way up tempo, sparkling and crispy with enough of both the gospel saint and the heretic sinner to make this one much fun. The '76s are just brilliant.

Catches onto a powerful pulse around 7:30 in as they head to the outro. Seems like they sped up a bit from the beginning to the end, but that might just be me.
The Music Never Stopped

Auditorium Theatre

Closes out a perfect first set. The drummers are a psychic octopus of tight grooveness, Donna sounds as good as she ever did, and Jerry floats idea after idea and kisses everyone right smack on the third eye. Just brilliant monster mash from Keith too. What fun.

Phil swoops, Donna and Keith soar, the drummers are in perfect mindmeld and Jerry does what Jerry does. This is as fun as it gets with the great Scarlet solo pieces before she met her FTM life partner.

A perfect version. Everything about this one is solid. The show the next night gets all the attention, but this set on the 28th is just beautiful.
Help On The Way > Slipknot > Franklin's Tower
June 27, 1976
Auditorium Theatre

This suite cooks from the first notes. The Slipknot is the stuff of legend, and the Keith-Jerry interaction in Franklin's is just brilliant. Just when you think the energy is petering out Keith heats it back up. The whole thing feels like a pot of water simmering just under the boil: Thousands of happy little bubbles just ready to go.
