Very solid show, but not mind-blowing.
Decent turnout, nearly sold out but still room to dance. The El Rey is one of the finer venues in New Mexico. Only partial setlists, sorry.
Opened with a strong I Don't Know You
Second song a Dawson tune about NM that I didn't recognize,
A Torbert song about Santa Fe to Taos (sung by Stir Fried guitarist)
An early showing of Dirty Business (nice but not adventurous)
Some other tunes
Micheal (drummer) sings Lochivar
set closed with Dead Flowers
David confers with rythym section after almost every tune. He sang most of the leads. Only complaint would be the lack of harmony support on many tunes.
Not sure how the second set opened. Got back in time for Hand Jive. A song that for sure goes over better live. Maybe every rock band needs to pass through the Bo Diddly portal....
Lousiana Lady was in there somewhere.
Highlight for me was the Garden Of Eden which morphed into the Stones' Last Time.
Standard Henry and a decent Ripple for an encore.
David looking happy and healthy.
Buddy high up in the mix all night and told some funny stories. Bass player was on. 3 hours of solid countryfied hippy music with smiles all around.
Thanks for the review, John!! Sounds like a great time was had by all. No surprise there.
