Only one circulating recording, aud-nak-glyde.13848, which I intially graded as AUD B but I think may be an AUD B/B+ on second listen. China Cat > Rider highlights set 1, and Bertha, He's Gone (cool jam) & Comes a Time set 2. The Shakedown encore seems designed to compensate for the short post-drums, but is pretty short itself and there is no jam, though the solo is excellent. Overall VG show, 8.5/10

The Music Played the Band

I was there that night and remember during the break, several minutes before the second set, somebody in the crowd started clapping the rhythm to "Not Fade Away". Gradually, most of the audience picked up on it (this was a pretty small hall, about 3,500 seats). The clapping continued after the house lights went out as the band slowly took the stage. You can hear the tail end of the clapping on the only recording there is on archive.org as the band picks up the rhythm and launches into NFA. One of the commenters on the archive page calls it a "nice change of pace" that NFA opened the 2nd set but it seems as if it wasn't really their idea. Literally, the crowd called the tune and the music played the band.
