Only played once - 3/27/86 Portland. Great tune written by Brent and Bobby Peterson - Phil and Brent duo vocals - This song had a really nifty melody and riff, and great words. if you are not familiar with this tune (or the show) - give it a spin. Not sure why they never played this again because everyone that was at the show really dug it. Also notable at this concert was the mid-set Bertha>Wang Dang, a jammed out Eyes (in 86 you say??) and a cool Spanish Jam.

Sorry Duderino, but from where I was at the show ( about 25 people deep between Phil and Bobby, the song was brutal. The set was going along at a good pace. Check the Jack Straw opener. Minglewood was OK, but when the boys got to Hamstrung things kind of pooped out.

The tune itself is not very easy to groove to and the wind just went COMPLETELY out of the salis. Folks around me just stopped dancing and at least from where I was, they didn't like it. As the song was ending I remember seeing them all with little smiles on their faces that kind of said " Well that didn't go over very well" and Jerry just steps right in a blasts off into Bertha to get the crowd back into it. I definatlly remember seeing Jerry give a smile over to Phil as he went almost immeditely into the opening chords of Bertha. The rest of the set rocked and I think you can hear the energy get back into play from Bertha on.


The words to the song are cool but in concert it didn't work. There's a reason they never returned to it. Perhaps with a little work it might have evolved.

Honestly.....I can take it or leave. I would prefer other Brent tunes. I love Easy to Love You, Far From Me, Good Times, Tons of Steel and even Maybe you Know. So I love Brent and that's not the issue. I'm gonna have to check my notes to see if I caught that one ( Gentlemen) live. I'm thinking I might have Laguna Seca 88 but not sure.

Just curious, I seem to be one of the only people who digs that song... maybe Swami too, can't remember.

I dunno. I liked it. But it definately could have used more polishing. Sort of like Esau when it first came out. And to respond to Koch - I thought "Gentlemen" was a decent song, but they really never developed it. IMO both songs had far more potential than Just A Little Light and We Can Run - what a terrible anthem with amateur lyrics. So literal...

Totally agree with you on We Can Run. I too think they could have improved on the lyrics.

It would be nice to see the Dude come in and drop some more knowledge.
This was a great show.

Dude has been MIA for quite sometime. He came over to T.A. for a while, then he moved to Maine. After the move-not a word. I hope he's okay. Really miss his contributions and he just seemed like a good guy all around. Be cool if he showed up one of these days.

He's on Facebook, I think he may have moved again, but anyhow I haven't seen him here...
I'm still hoping some other older folks will come back, and some new folks will start posting.

Either way, I'm cool with it... I put down my thoughts, others do too... it's here as a record.
