This week the exciting (and super long!) second set from the band's performance at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester NY on November 8th, 1970. The band was clearly developing quickly at this time.. and in many ways we can look upon this as a turning point, away from perhaps the rawer, more psychedelic sound to a more polished version that would come to dominate in 1971 and beyond. The set list contains some song we'd never hear again, (Mystery Train, My Babe, The Main Ten) as well as some we would hear for the first time (Around and Around). This is truly a joy to behold as it clocks in at over 2 hours just for this second set.. one can only speculate on how long it seemed :) I think it is clearly a joy to have this show documented, albeit in an audience tape, to give us a window onto what was obviously a creative apex for the band..
