"First Appearance" (Part 1) - EC In Person - 002 - sb5

Recorded at Koseinkin Hall, Osaka, on 05-11-74
6 tracks on 1 CD. Total Time: 49:42

Let It Grow/Can't Find My Way Home/Better Make It Through Today/Tell The Truth/Drifting Blues/Willie and the Hand Jive & Get Ready 

I am giving this a high rating of sb5 to be consistent with the ratings for "Best of Tour '74" and "Bright Lights In Blues City". The sound is equal to those other recordings (though this one is a little more hissy), and all perhaps deserve a sb4 rating for this reason. (R.B.)
