At the moment I'm listening to the jam out of Playing In The Band.
I picked this up on sale in a record store for $15. It's KQED's production and is done pretty well. There are some really good shots of the band as a family up on that stage. There are the two drummers in the back, the trio of guitarists, Donna between Jerry & Bob and Keith on his Yamaha keyboards to the right. Everybody looks so dang young. Bobby with glasses. Keith always looks so freakin' into his own world.
This show is very California mellow. You sit back and scratch your head going "Man, I sure remember the band a lot more rockin' than that..." But, that was the way it was in the West in general and California in particular. The floor isn't overcrowded with tightly packed people, the whole scene is very mellow, like eating a giant Quaalude.
Anyhow, I'm sure glad I picked it up. This is my first listen to this show.

I've had more fun discovering this band this year than any other recent discovery. I have enjoyed out "music" by Derek Bailey, Fred Frith, and Henry Kaiser for almost ten years, but had resisted the pull of prog and Canterbury. Big mistake. HC and its peer groups were great, committed and uncompromising artists. Jump through the window!
