This was the second night at the Bottom Line (presumably).

At the beginning of track 5, Darryl says, "Not bad for the first show".

I also have a ticket stub, which originally had the date as Dec 10, but is crossed out and Dec 12 is written in.

I went to the Bottom Line Timeline and the year 1979 is not available to observe.

It appears that is the only year that they didn't bother to add dates for.

My guess is that the original gig dates were Dec 10 & 11.

Then for some reason the 2 nights were moved to Dec 11 & 12. Just a guess.

You can see the Timeline here: http://bottomlinecabaret.net/tline_78.html

But the web designer does not offer links to jump to different years.

You have to actually type in the year into the url line, crazy !?!?

You'd think with all the work that went into that website, they'd have links. You'll see what I mean.

I'm not a fan persay of H & O, but they did write some good songs and then some that weren't so good.

I'm not sure how rare this is, but when I did a search for it on a handful of sites, I didn't see it anywhere.

Etree has a few people that have this, but those copies seem to be missing the last 2 songs.

I did find another version of this that had 7 different songs listed, that might be from 2 nights combined.

Eitherway, this has never been on TTD and not currently on dime and not listed on concert vault.

This might be new for many of you. The quality is REALLY good.

So if you like this band, you're going to want this !!!

As for the band members on stage, I'm wondering if G.E. Smith on guitar was involved,

because I see that he was on the tour, but isn't mentioned during the band introductions.

Anyone that can shine more light on this, I would appreciate it.

band members:
Darryl Hall - vocals
John Oates - guitar
John Siegler - bass
Jerry Marotta - drums
Charlie DeChant - saxophone, keyboards
