Scarlet Begonias ->Fire On The Mountain, Samson and Delilah, Terrapin Station ->Playing In The Band ->Drums ->The Other One ->Wharf Rat ->Good Lovin ‘, e: U.S. Blues
Great quality mix from Charlie Miller here and the Band was feeling the energy from the crowd and it was returned to the music. Half step opener is a cool vibe taking from the Rio Gand-E-O right over to a bouncy Franklin’s. We have a Candyman! and the Uncle>River duo gets things ripping. Love a fast-paced BEW too! Set II stands out and speaks for itself.
