I can attest that the Northeast Fall Tour was very popular, several venues were oversold and packed like sardines and there were no big stadium shows neither. I went to this show without a ticket, refused to pay the scalper who wanted four times the price of the ticket. Lesson learned, i never again left for a show without a ticket.We acquired this show very soon afterwards, since then there has been numerous versions. The last time most of us diehard east coasters saw the band was Englishtown, so all were pumped.

1/2 Step is a great way to get started, Duprees was well received, most AUDS drowned out most of the beginning due to the ROWDY crowd, it was a bit rusty IMHO. Standouts are FOTD and a rippin Passenger. MSN did not disappoint and the crowd remained in peak level till the doors opened. The second set is very impressive and keeps on giving.Who can not love a 1977 Scarlet>Fire? St Stephen was another favorite for sure but the Hot Truckin' that followed it was an awesome way to end a set. Phil steps up to the mic, a rarity in 77!

The 4th 5th and 6th are noteworthy on the transference with the band and crowd and the performances. This night per my friends report was blazin, the boys were loose on stage, the crowd was nutso. Really popular run and decent performance were factors that had the community swapping for this one in the trading circles as mentioned. I had AUDS initially then SBDS . These shows were in everyone's collection early on.

The release is fine but so are:
