The Chicago show was outstanding. I brought a couple of friends who did not know BC and they were both overwhelmed with the musicianship and expert use of his various digital delays and compressors. Vocals were a little muffled in the mix.... he confessed to getting over a cold, but the focus seemed to be the guitar work.
The clarinet accompaniment on Rouler Sa Bosse was hummed by BC. Bruce mentioned that Going To The Country is the oldest song he still plays, and he made what sounded like a confession that he was not overly pleased with his eighties instrumentals since he was at that time more interested in the electric guitar. I loved his eighties "rock star" period, but it is good to have him back in his folk/jazz/blues acoustic roots, I must say. King Kong Goes To Tallahassee was a big favourite with the audience, we Chicagoans like da blues! The use of processors to "thicken" the guitar in If A Tree Falls was just about sublime... a big favourite with the audience.
All the Ways I Want You was beautiful, and made my friend cry. This Is Baghdad [was preceded by] political observations that had the crowd cheering... a great song. After The Rain was followed by some amusing chat about the Bee Gees.
