Scott Jackson wrote: John Fogerty's Rockin' All Over The World was one of the best songs in the show. He played it great ... and I was unfamiliar with the song and later looked a long time to find out the artist!

Other than that, I think that both Badlands, Hungry Heart, and Sherry Darling got a great response.

The "Detroit Medley" was the start of the encore, with Mitch Ryder coming out and they did what you'd expect: Devil With The Blue Dress and Good Golly Miss Molly.

Twist and Shout was turned into a long piece with the house lights turned on and everyone in the place standing and dancing.

By the way, about an hour of this performance was later released as a bootleg, which I stumbled across years later in a used record store in Memphis. It has excellent sound quality (must have been recorded off of the soundboard. This is NOT an audience tape) and, yes, I play it every now and then.

Great show. One of my first big nights out with a date!
