This is one of the best shows of '78, and a creative pinnacle for this band's lineup. Not much in late 78-early 79 matches the Jan-Feb peak, 6/4, July 78, or the October 78 winterland stuff. But this show is certainly on that level, and a must hear for anyone exploring 1978.

Keith is playing very confidently and with a lot of blues influence going on (its a chicago show). He sounds very alive and Jerry hits some great solos this night. This is in many ways the peak of this late Godchaux lineup's repertoire. The highlight is a very exciting jam surrounding Other One, with some brain melt stuff.

This has the hottest versions this lineup played of Stagger Lee and I Need A Miracle. There is also a wonderful Candyman, very well played. I think this version of Music Never Stopped is in contention for best ever, especially given Keith's input. It's All Over Now is given special attention from the band (again - its chicago) and this performance is top notch, equal to the Dick Picks 18 version from Feb.

Scarlet-Fire is kinda mellow compared to other 78 versions people know and love, but don't miss Keith's beautiful playing on this version.

Top Quality versions of: Stagger Lee, Candyman, It's All Over Now, The Music Never Stopped, I Need A Miracle, Other One, He's Gone, From The Heart Of Me

People disco dancing in the aisle during Sugar Magnolia.

After the show Phil said, "We'd like to thank the people in the front row for not moving a muscle all night. We sure hope you folks can get home by yourselves."
