Plenty of Dead covers in this 1993 show from Orlando, FL!
Starting a concert with Pastures of Plenty feels like a stamens of intent. It’s loud and fast, and this is a lively concert for Orlando.
Bruce is quick to point out John D’earth on trumpet and Bobby Read on sax, who are highlights throughout.
Jacob’s Ladder features Jackie Wilson’s “Your Love Keeps Lifting Me Higher” to continue the up-tempo feel 9you can hear Bruce’s aside “That was good!” to the band after that one) and we get an early version of Rainbow’s Cadillac on accordion (“That works!”, says Bruce).
“My Old School” is a Yellowjackets song, since we have Jimmy Haslip on bass.
The entire second set is requests. Look for Shenandoah to open The Road Not Taken.
The full band for this show is Bruce Hornsby (piano, vocals), John D’earth (trumpet), Bobby Read (sax), John Molo (drums), Jimmy Haslip (bass), and J.T. Thomas (keyboards).
