It was a good show – slightly longer than the August one. I particularly like “Honeysuckle” and “Coming Home”. The highlight (for me, at least) was Scotty doing a flawless segue from “Waitress In The Sky” into “Sweet Child O’ Mine” – priceless. We also got Scotty’s first appearance on lead guitar, and Todd’s first turn at the keyboard.

Better late than never, right? Another good show, but I’ll get straight to my favorite part – two new songs! “Horse” “is about falling in love with someone who’s in love with a horse”. Mike’s still looking for a good title – apparently the New Hampshire audience (the “dress rehearsal” show) suggested “Equine Rhapsody” (me, I like “Horse Hater” or “Jockey’s Lament”). Pretty good song. “Independence, Indiana” I’m familiar with from Robbie’s solo shows, but with Julie singing it, it was great – especially the bridge. An added bonus – the return of “Blue Jeans”.
