-Stormy Monday: almost seamless splice
This one comes out of my own archives and originates from Jamie Oldaker's reels.
A close friend got a number of shows directly from Jamie and I made a copy off his 1st gens in the mid 1980's.
The most commonly circulating versions appear to be either be missing "Blues Power" entirely or it is cut. "Blues Power" is complete here and it's a scorching albeit somewhat mellow version. I'm not sure if this is the first time "Blues Power" has circulated complete but it is likely the first time from this low of a generation copy.
Eric is full of piss and vinegar on this night, starting the show off by challenging a yelling audience member to "come up on stage and talk about it" followed by some expletives and then telling him "I'll have you...". This is show also immediately precedes the unfortunate political rant at the Birmingham show two nights later which EC ended up writing an apology letter for printed in the September 11 edition of 'Sounds'. Something definitely had EC wound up the early part of this tour or perhaps just too much drink.
The circulating version runs just a touch fast, this version is pitch adjusted to run at the correct speed. Samples provided as well as artwork for this new version...
