Compared to the early show, this late show was a much better performance. The crowd was definitely more intoxicated and really into it and the band
seemed to feed off of that enthusiasm. Lonnie spoke less compared to the early set and the jams were longer (nearly a 20 minute version of "Slippin'
Into Darkness"!), plus there were four different songs.
It wasn't as windy as it was earlier in the day, so the only wind noise occurs in the intro and a little bit in "The Cisco Kid." I was once again on an
aisle, so there's tons of phasing from when people walked by or when some decided to use the row I was in as an aisle. There is also background chatter,
some clapping along and some screaming, but I feel the talking is only annoying during "Slippin' Into Darkness," between "Cinco De Mayo" and "All Day
Music" and during a bit of "Spill The Wine."
Unfortunately, this recording is incomplete. My mom got cold around 9:40, so we left during "So." I kept recording as we left the Fort Frontier Stage,
but I have faded out the song out when the crowd started to overwhelm the music. While walking back to the car, I could hear the band play "Summer" and
then "Why Can't We Be Friends?" I couldn't hear anymore after that, but I would assume only "Low Rider" was left. So I'm guessing that this recording
is missing about 30 minutes. By the way, I saw a man a few rows in front of me blatantly holding an MD with an external Sony mic, so perhaps somewhere
out there is a full recording.
I did not touch anything on this recording.
This is for my mom. For many years, we have sat outside of War shows to listen to them and this was the first time we were finally able to see them (last
year they played just a few miles away but we didn't go out of fear of being killed...and there were indeed stabbings at that show). I only wish the
Lowrider Band was a more frequent touring act because we'd love to see them as well.
Please support the band by buying their official releases and merch.
