What a fun evening!

Wow, 11/7/87 Kaiser, how the mind reels...the only show of the 67 I attended where the lights went up after the encore but then went back down again and the band came back for a second, unplanned encore. As I recall (always a loaded proposition) the crowd simply WOULD NOT LEAVE and also would not stop screaming. Yes, I know, the crowd also did this at [insert your show here] that you went to, but the band never came back out. What can I say, it was defintely one those "You had to have been there" moments. My first-ever visit to California as well, and I can honestly say that I have never been treated with such hospitality before or since. That little park across the street from the Kaiser provided the greatest vending/hangout scene of any shows I ever went to. Great memories; think I'll go hunt up that tape now...

The next time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, but I truly thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you may fix when you werent too busy in search of attention.

Your Description is Spot On - A Must Have Show

Although I did not attend this show I do have a board tape and this is concert is AWESOME! Very muscular and heavy from start to finish.

As I mentioned in my attachment for the rare flyer I have: Phil, Bob Billy, Mickey and the members of the Rex Foundation Board should seriously consider releasing this show as a benefit/fund raiser release just like that 1990 Landover Maryland CD.

Here is a link to a flyer for this show on this website:

Yes Reaching for the gold ring

The park across the street added to the allure of the Kaisers. Always felt like home. I can remember my 1st time there in feb of 85 for the Chinese New Years show's . I was so blown away by the calmness of all of us. It felt like a mellow party not a concert. Or as we use to call them a "show". Anyone ever go to another place with such a laidback scene? Maybe the Berkeley Community Theater or Marin civic. Funny how they all seem to be in the bay area. Living on the east coast for 1st 18 years of my life then the bay area for the next 10 years or so changed my way of thinking living and loving.
When I left my Rehab - haven't we all been to ONE ? I will never forget my counsler calling my family back into the breeze way to inform them that he doubted I would stay sober due the fact that I suffered from a laid back California type of attitude. Ha how's that for a statement. SUFFER? No one could suffer from such a thing.

Tampa Red -- the Kaiser Nov 87 were my first California shows as well--also turns out to be the smallest venue I ever witnessed the band. What a great place and energy - the park/outside scene was unbelievable. Goodies on display, like a flea market of fun --I thought this was the best night of the 3, but these were my 5,6 and 7th shows and given the locale--I might not recall as well as I would like to believe. I ended up seeing CA shows at Cal Expo, Greek, Shoreline, Irvine, Oakland Co and as magical as the Greek is...have to say Kaiser was something special.
