This show is the Download series release that was also made into a PBS special on the San Francisco music scene in 1970. I have watched the PBS documentary several times but it does not seem to do this show justice...This is a solid release, and a very solid, short show. It was only 10 days before the famous Fillmore East run, and it sounds every bit as good. Check out the setlist...
Hard To Handle
Me & My Uncle
China Cat Sunflower>
I Know You Rider
Not Fade Away>
In The Midnight Hour
Dancing in the Streets(Bonus Material)
Monkey And The Engineer (Bonus Material)
Good Lovin' (Bonus Material)
The highlight is definately the St. Stephen>NFA>St. Stephen>Midnight Hour. Pig is completely off his ass during this show. He sounds excellent. Perfect example of what I love about Piggy. Also, this show has a little slower tempo than most from '70, which works in its favor.
I was in San Francisco last summer and had dinner at The Cliff House. Incredible seafood and what a view!! I had no idea until today the The Family Dog was right across the street from that place. I guess it used to be a roller rink or some shit.....It is a vacant lot now I guess. Anyway, upon relisten I think this show is worth a revisit.....PEace
