Labor Day weekend.. summer's swan song so they say with the kids going back to school .. or college.. and lots of folks getting one last weekend of warm weather activities.. well I decided to bring you a show from a fall tour.. the Fall of 1972.. had a request for one of these wonderful shows so I'm bringing you the last night of a great three night run at the Fabulous Fox theater in St. Louis, October 19th, 1972. I played the 2nd set of the night before about four years ago.. but this one is a keeper as well. We will hear set 1 this week and the amazing second set next week.
As usual, this first set features a great selection of the band's catalog played smartly. These are all excellent versions, but my highlights would include the China Cat->Rider with an excellent transition, always great to hear the Dire wolf come out and the boys really amp it up with the last two songs, Around and Around and Casey Jones.. I think this is a great set to sit back and enjoy as you savor the last long weekend of summer.
