A BIG snowstorm hit Arkansas and shut out many CDG roadtrippers from the show. Thanks to Jeff Morrow and Arthur Creech, there are tapes of this unique show! The power went out, so the first 4 songs are by candlelight. When it comes back on, the band continues an acoustic set with a great cover of the Beatles Cry, Baby Cry. It is an amazing set with a wide variety of songs, many new, and halfway thru Azul Ezell, Chris goes electric and proceeds to rip up the rest of the show. The electric set includes a wicked, rare Catfish Blues and ends with Pink Floyds Wish You Were Here! Awesome!! The video does not include the candlelight set, but both the cassette and video are incredible!
Stoop Down, Baby / Thrill For Thrill / Moments Notice
/ A for Arnie
You Really Make Me Happy / Sho Is A Movie To Me
One of three 1988 shows that have turned up, this one is really cool cuz you get Chris workin out some John Coltrane material AND the late, great Jr. Medlow! Get anything you can with Junior Medlow on it. A great starting point is Testify, the fan club release featuring Chris, Junior, and John Jordan playing together years ago. Stop what youre doing and order one right now, its that important! Jr. Medlow was a great talent and you should check out everything he did. Plus, the money from the sale of the tape goes to Junior Medlows family, so help out and get great music, too.
Tropic Joy / In The Open / Ive Been Abused
/ Cool-Shakin Baby
Catfish Blues / See, See Baby / People Get Ready / Hideaway
Letter To My Girlfriend / Sunshine Of Your Love / Red House
Little Wing / Close To You / Parkers Mood / Shakey Ground
Just Kissed My Baby / Slide Instrumental / Resolution
Yet another cool early show that has turned up. This is a great show with a wide variety of musical flavors. Start with a hot version of Tropic Joy that opens the show, throw in some smokin instrumentals with In The Open and Cool-Shakin Baby, add some Hendrix a-la Catfish Blues and Red House, and toss in some jazz with Parkers Mood and Resolution, along with a double dose of in-your-face attitude, and youve got a great show! Well worth having.

All Night / Drivin South
2nd set: My Way Down / Just Kissed My Baby / Shiloh

The Thrill Is Gone / Hear My Train A-Comin
A superb recording that has turned up recently, the quality is fantastic and we get several new songs like How Long, Metaphor Song (who needs Stairway to Heaven!), All Night, and Letter To My Girlfriend. Theres also killer versions of Drivin South, Thrill Is Gone and the classic Hear My Train A-Comin. With the group between drummers, Brannen Temple (drummer on Texas Sugar) fills in, giving the show a nice, spicy flavor! Whoever recorded the show, thanks for listing the equipment used (a Sharp MS-722 mini-disc recorder with a Panasonic WM-60AT mic). Great job!
