central illinois where the cornfields strech to the horizon and not too much happens...most of the time...BUT this was not the case on 4/24/78 when "jehovah's favorite choir" set up shop for a show @ Ill. State U!
your basic "open seating" field house was the setting for a red hot show! a lovely first set preceded a 2nd set that caught fire from the opening notes of scarlet!! the jammin' continued throughout the set and the concluding encore of werewolves sent us all howling into the nite!!

Nothing Normal about this total bitch of a show. It will leave you smiling thru your assholes!

billed as "come participate in a live recording for an album"...... never quite made the cut but a smokin show none the less

This was my first show and i have a great tape of the show. On the road from st Louis we observed several double rainbows ( for real )

II
Drums-Jamaican style drums midway through, then jungle animal sounds that Mickey and Billy made sound as if they were DJ's spinning vinyl chanting "hey" five minutes afterward.

E
Werewolves-3rd of 12 times. Chorus bit rusty.

This show is among my favorites - it smokes!
This show is begging for an official release. Could it be a future Dave's Picks Series release?

This show is being released as Dave's Picks, Volume 7 on August 1, 2013. Enjoy!

Weirs slide guitar playing is brutal. He almost ruins Werewolves Of London. It's that bad. Other than that this is a great show.

Staying Alive tease into Me and My Uncle
-Crazy Otto (08/17/2013)


Staying Alive tease continues throughout Me and My Uncle, and runs right on through Big River. Scarlet > Fire is a monster (the good kind).
-EdTheRed (09/11/2013)


happy anniversary Horton's! Blasting Dave's Picks 7, incredibly great Set 1 ... better than the second set which is very good but that first set is SMOKIN
