Wow. Thanks to everyone that has responded so far. You all really know how to welcome a newby to the site. Appreciate all of the detailed responses and the listening has been divine.
That shot of the Scope is pretty great. Would have loved to have caught a show there ... I believe in the early/mid 80's, I was probably in some crappy movie theater obsessing over "the goonies" or god forbid "top gun" ... hitting an arcade ... you get the picture
. Completely oblivious to the fact that musical giants were roaming the earth ...
I got into the dead in 1988 or so. My brother turned me onto american beauty which grabbed my ear. Saw my first show in 1989 in Charlotte. Was fortunate to see a number of shows in fall of '91 including the show with branford marsalis and hornsby. That was a treat.
This scope show has really caught my ear. Love the eyes of the world that was posted as well. Real nice. The ending on that is just awesome. There is this great interplay with Brent and Jerry ... just great stuff.
That 1978 is a great turn on too. Interesting to hear Bob go into that slide portion early on Fire. Thanks you for the posts so far, I have added several shows to my favorites!
