Geetarz Comments:

The sound quality on this one isn't great, and can be a difficult listen at times. However, the performance more than makes up for the shortcomings of the recording. Of note are a really nice performance of 'Same Old Blues' complete with a good guitar/bass duel between EC and Nathan East. EC's outro solo during 'Tearing Us Apart' is a bit different than the way he usually plays it, with fewer notes and relying more on a "singing" sustain. Cover art incorrectly lists the date as July 14.

One of the refreshing things about travel, is that one learns that although cultures, styles, and attitudes may be different in some superficial ways, at the core people are pretty much the same all the world over. This recording is a great illustration of that, as during 'A Remark You Made' the Isreali crowd prove that they are just as good at the "SIT DOWN YOU JERK!" argument as any Asshole New Yorker!
