Fantastic band interplay on this one and Jerry's vocals are so soulful. Not a big fan of Peggy but this one cant be skipped. Chasingwilma AUD is great

Samson and Delilah

One of the finest Samson's I've heard - Jerry is especially killing it. Second song of the first set says it all. DONT SKIP bc it's an AUD only show

Estimated>Spoonful, one of two ever played. Jerry tries to link it together but it's a bit abrupt. Definitely fun though :)

Onondaga Auditorium

Comes out of Estimated, nice & subdued in the beginning. The bluesy jam leading into the Other One is worth a listen. Brent is the man on this one

Also just a fun fact only one of three Samson show openers, the others being 4/10/83 and 5/26/93. All very very different eras for the band

If I ever went to a show where Samson was the first set opener I'd lose my mind Face was properly stolen off my head after hearing this version. Drummers and Phil are on fire

Please give this a listen - truly a shining star in an era many people (myself included) ignore
