"Uh, just kind of, you know, let your mind flow, leave your body behind." - Agustus, K-News, Dallas. 

This is real classic stuff and the recording (aside from a couple of mic bumps in Sookie, Sookie) is surprisingly good. From what I understand this was remastered by TheTooleman who did a fine job. The performance is hot... I mean this really rocks! There's some great banter with the crowd that is pretty indicative of the good feelings this band carried with them. 

It's really interesting to note the crowds lack of reaction when they mention Born To Be Wild but very understandable considering this show was apparently only about a week after it was released. My favorite pub had to take that tune off the Jbox cuz whenever anyone played "the anthem" the place went apeshit.

  1. I have another copy of this download, with less songs, but it's listed as being performed on 2nd February, 1968.
