This show was a sort of a bust out for this line-up. Futoshi's playing on this gig
broke new ground for him, in my opinion. It had been a long time since I had seen him
play. Not since Gregg's Egg's (roughly 2 years ago) in fact. He has been playing a
blues gig since then, and his playing on EOWB shows the work. During Golden Road,
Futoshi's guitar amp quit, and you can hear him just sort of fade away during a solo.
The rest of the band steps up after a short delay, and Futoshi comes back to finish
