I drove up to see the band from Oxford OH where I was a junior at Miami U. It was memorable for a couple of reasons: Kidd was on the soundboard and Donna was expecting ! Big Steve gently escorted a large man who'd crawled up on stage during GSET off to stage left. Thanks for the clean sounding recording!
