Old Town Bar & Grill
Eureka, CA. USA
Not the whole show: Thus, the tape starts part way into “Nicaragua”. The band was on from the first song. I still remember the blazing solo Bruce took on “Tropic Moon”. They were on fire. It still hurts that these songs weren’t captured, and that the end of “Dust” was cut too. Here’s what was missed: Grim Travellers / Maybe The Poet / Tropic Moon / Justice. The limitations of cassettes!
However, there is the amazing spoken intro to “Rocket Launcher”, and both “Hoop Dancer” and “Joy” are among the most transcendent things I’ve ever seen Bruce play, so the pain of what is missing is tempered by what IS here.
Recorded by Sean Bohannon. Transferred from the original master cassette to DAT in Sept. 1995. Edited and mastered to CD – July 2007)
