Reviews from this recording:
REVIEW: This is the best AUD…
…of this show in existence as of 2011-08-31. Of course. After all, it’s a Miller 24 bit.

REVIEW: Really Superb! !!
It’s got the 81 vibe in spades. Perfect mix. What a fine recording. Thanks IA, Charlie Miller and all.

REVIEW: bread crumb
Another example of why a really great audience recording is hands-down better than a soundboard, +
24 bit! I’ve had this tape since very shortly after it was made. Just a beautiful job.

Reviews of other audience recordings:
absolutely stunning show. emotive, sweet vocal improv, drums as potent and powerful as ever, bits
rolling and haunting in places, filled with joy, jazz, pop, & pain. these were the shows for me.
musicianship, emotion, and magic. thank you all.

REVIEW: Mellow Acid…
Picture a big blue sky, not a cloud in sight and temperatures at about 100 degrees. This might be the
best show nobodies ever heard of. 1/2>Franky is just a treat, it just rocks and sways with no hint of
paranoia or angst. Brents organ was shot from the get-go so it interesting to hear him play keyboards
on songs like Samson.

REVIEW: I used to listen to this a lot
The set list is somewhat similar to the next year, but the first two years at the Compton Terrace were
the best and I went to all but the last one ! My tapes are in storage so I haven’t heard this in a while
but I remember liking the first set. This is the only “tour” I ever went on out of the ~211 shows I saw
from ’76-’94; seeing all of the west coast summer shows except Boise.

REVIEW: Here’s my two cents…
And one of the greatest Cumberland Blues of all time.
