Special Notes & How to identify my recording:
The Reigen is a small(-ish) music club/restaurant with tables (which were sold out) and some standing sections.
The concert was in two parts, the break started where the tracks are split into Disc 1 and Disc 2 - however, part 1 fades into part 2, so no real break can be heard on the recording.
During the first song Kim Simmonds welcomes the crowd "Good evening, everybody! ... It's nice to be in your city tonight!" and then he introduces the band. Right between Kim announcing "Street Corner talkin'" and the start of the song you can hear a short "Wooo!" from me. Before 'Bad Weather brewin'' Kim says something about the new album and the tour "We're in Europe for two weeks... Yeah, Germany, Switzerland and Austria... and that's it, then we go back home!". Then before he announces 'Coming down your Way' he talks about the band and its various lineups and mentiones "I'd like to pay tribute to a singer I had in 1974 - Jackie Lynton - we did an album together (...)" you can hear a "Wooo!" from me. After 'Sunday Night' Pat DeSalvo thanks the audience for turning up and mentiones that there will be two sets. Before announcing 'Poor Girl' (before the short piece 'Romanoff' as intro) Kim says "We got one more then we take a break!". During the closing chords of 'Poor Girl' he again announces "Gonna take a break! Thank you!".
After 'Tell Mama' Kim says "This next one is off the 'Goin' to the Delta' CD..." [me: "Yeah!"] and he continues "...from last year!" and you can hear me commenting "Which is sold out!" (A few months before the gig I'd found out that the successor to 'Voodoo Moon' had already been out for over a year and another brand new CD 'The Devil to pay' was on the way... and instead of buying the record somewhere online or search for it in a shop I thought I'd get them both at the gig AND have them signed! But oh well, I wasn't fast enough, in the break the 'Delta' CD has sold out - I got the brand new one 'Devil' though. However, just a few days later I discovered a copy of the 'Delta' CD in a shop, too, actually looking for nothing specific! Ha!)
After 'I miss your Love' Pat again thanks the crowd for turning up and mentiones their website (you can hear a few crackles coming from Kim's amp as he was plugging in his other guitar) and continues "Once again thank you for bringing us to this wonderful town, it's absolutely gorgeous!". After 'I've been drinking' Pat says something like "(...) get some Austrian drinking stuff" and Kim takes over "I think drinking was invented in Austria, wasn't it?!" and Pat answers "I think Mozart wrote that!" and you can hear me cheering "Prost!". The Kim talks about the number of albums they have released and can't remember how many they really are "but I think it's in the high 30s, 38 or something!" and you can hear me laughing. When he announces the final song of the regular set, 'Louisiana Blues', Kim mentiones "you heard the original when we walked on stage" (I've omitted the whole intro tape from the bootleg). After the drum solo in 'Louisiana Blues' at 10:52 I believe Kim sings "I'm goin' to Vienna". After the 'Whole lotta shakin' goin' on'-snippet in the 'Savoy Brown Boogie' I cheer "Wooo! Yeah!". After the Boogie Kim thanks the audience "Thank you so much, everybody... we really enjoyed it! ...thank you!" but we kept on clapping so they decided to do one more, and Pat says "we're doin' another tune" and jokingly mentiones "Mozart" and "He wrote this next one also!" (there's some laughter to be heard) - 'Wang dang doodle' actually was written by Willie Dixon, first recorded by Howlin' Wolf.
