wow! hard to handle!

...they brought Etta and Tower of Power horns out (see 12-31-82). Etta belted out the two-song encore. I think there was a radio or TV simulcast because Booby said prior to second set something about "waiting for the Gator Bowl to end" or some such...

First Hard to Handle since Pigpen sang it on 8-26-71. Still, somewhat disappointing. Not that Etta didn't do well, it's just not Pigpen. I had to go back listen to his final version of the song on that date. He may have been sick but he gave it his all and it sounds terrific.
