For some reason, this is one that hasn't circulated too much.
Another GREAT Gatton show and the sound is wonderful- the only problem is a slight buzz sound.Can't tell if it's from the broadcast or the gear on stage ( or both), but it's really not too bad. Without that little buzz, this is a solid A recording. With the buzz, it's probably an A-.
PLUS...the really interesting thing is that track #13 is an interview with Danny just after he gets off stage. It's a very good interview, but it's also very sad as Danny took his own life only 3 months later. He talks about his home, his family, his influences and the pressure of being "Number One". He also describes the new Fender double-neck that he was starting to play.
