Another great chicago 78 show. Keith is playing confidently. check out his work with jerry on Looks Like Rain (one of the best).

the archive sources are a mess for this show, lots of incomplete sources. but its worth hearing for 78 fans. some deep jams surrounding the drums segment

oh yeah, and check out that Dancin > Deal transition! pretty smooth..

I love Keith. Donna not so much but the writing is on the wall. Non existent in this show other than some electric piano. If you listen to 11 79 they are re energized. Crazy to think 7/8 was a couple of months before and gone in February. Sorry but they needed the change imo. NFA 65-95!

This November Chicago run is excellent, better than the May shows, but not quite as amazing as 1/30 thru 2/1. Similar to the October Winterland shows in performance quality but overall bit more wild and exploratory (at the cost of tightness)

This Scarlet > Fire goes places.. I really wish there were nice SBDs available for 11/16 and 11/17. At least 11/18 is pretty accessible.

Keith was giving his all during this run, and there are still some magical moments happening as they find ways to push the 78 material a bit further.

Iím still coming back to this show for the crazy Deal and excellent LLR
