Eric was laughing when he sung NGFLA!

I wonder if the paper tape that the spectator threw out hit him?

Wonderful piano arrangement of "That's Rock'n'Roll".

It was AMAZING!

I held back tears because I had heard live today.

Eric

Why do not you sing in front of us?

Your performance makes me happy so much.

Everyone is expecting you to stand in the stage.

Your talent still shining!!!!

I don't Know.

Perhaps Recording radiobroadcasted at that time.

I want to request the explanation from Bernie about this.

I heard friend's ownership record.

It is GREAT!!!!!AMAGING!!!COOL!!!!EXCITING!!!!

"Boats Against The Current"is more powerful than original recording.

Why it isn't published.....is a mystery. LuvLove

Yeah, those versions of BAC and TRR are really strong. Would love to hear the full length version of TRR and hear Davey Johnston rocking & riffing it !

Thank you Naeko,

James

I got this recording on cassette back in 1980 - I probably played it in my car 500 times. Back then getting anything with Eric live around here was very very rare! Almost 40 years.....yeesh!

Hey Bill, did you ever find out if that was really Eric you met in Orange/Milford that time?...I remember you saying he was doing some kind of record promotion deal and had mentioned to you that he had recorded a demo/song with Bryan Adams...

"Marathon Man" live—wow! It's such a great live-show number. The album version is different... more of a production. I've always loved the odd "feel" to MM as a recording, but live and in concert, it's a rollicking rocker. Very nice! Thank you, Naeko!

I missed that tour.... The first concert I went to was actually the next year, 1978 (ELO in Buffalo—the "Out of the Blue" spaceship tour).
