The openning was classic and gripping, I guess typical for then. Dark quiet theater, then a light on Suki Lahav, stage left, begins the solo violin intro. A few bars in, simultaneously, Bruce begins to sing/tell 'Incident..', as a single spotlight from behind the stage brightens, so the crowd just sees the silhouette of 'that' Bruce - cap, leather jacket, canvas sneaks... Then 2 hours of a breath-taking wall-of-sound rock'n'roll party.
David Sancious was incredible, especially (of course) in 'Kitty's Back' - I am soo grateful I saw him with Bruce, and (no offense, Danny or Roy) I wish he'd lasted longer with Bruce. By my next show, Bottom Line'75, the 'classic' line-up was in place.
