From the Biltmore, a longtime favourite of Bruuuce.com visitors.
This show was one week after the release of the Halcyon Days record. Bruce encourages the crowd to “get up and dance” almost immediately. “That’s what the Biltmore’s for!” He’s not wrong… it’s always a raucous crowd and show here. Fully ten songs clock in at ten minutes or over on this recording!
Bobby Read, once again, is all over Funhouse and J.V. contributes vocals partway through Rainbow’s Cadillac!
R.S. Hornsby sits in throughout.
The band: Bruce Hornsby, R.S. Hornsby (guitar), Bobby Read (sax), Sonny Emory (drums), J.V. Collier (bass), Doug Derryberry (guitar), J.T. Thomas (keyboards)
