This show was much in demand back in 1996. Bobby Read is a highlight.
This show was shortly before Bruce and the band took off on the Grateful Dead-themed “Furthur” tour, and we hear that in this show in St Louis. Wharf Rat is dedicated to “an old friend who we lost last year” in Jerry Garcia.
Bobby Read was acknowledged by Bruce early on, and he is all over this show! Look out also for Debbie Henry in Across the River and Defenders of the Flag, and J.V. Collier’s bass solo on Talk of the Town.
Some nice transitions also: White-Wheeled Limousine teased The Letter here, the Changes gave us That’s the Way I Like It, and Hot House Ball briefly went into Be My Girl.
The band this night was: Bruce Hornsby, John D’earth, Bobby Read, Debbie Henry, John Molo, J.V. Collier and J.T. Thomas.
