I was wondering-- was the entire show acoustic? I have Reckoning on vinyl and just love it, but I don't have any extra acoustic dead from the 80s. So is there more than what you can get on the fancy new CD of the Reckoning and if so could it be posted in the taper's section, PLEASE? I know theres plenty 'coustic from the early 70's, but... it just doesn't have Brent's sweet piano playing.

If anyone could shed some light for me I would love it...

Warfield - 1980s

Not sure if you noticed, but there are about 14 shows at the Warfield Theater in 1980. It seems as though they went from acoustic to part acoustic and then to full electric. Its absolutely insane, get them all.

If anyone knows the actual story behind why they did this I would love to hear it.

My son's 1st show... in utero

I only made it to one show of this run, but it was the opening night which to me is special. My son would be born in less than a month, so I'll claim this to be his 1st show.

what a time it was - my 1st show of 15 - perfect attendance

The marquee on the theater said it all ...

I think this was the night that Uncle Bobo saw me unwrapping the tape mike cables while I was in the restrooms before the show. Of course he confiscated them. Yeah, I had lots of splaining to do to Joanie, Mark, and Keith.

An entire show of acoustic,

An entire show of acoustic, wow. I think we can only dream about such concerts these days only in our dreams. I don’t remember getting an opportunity to attend such concerts other than the one to which I have gone with my father when I was a child.
