DOOBIE BROTHERS – Rainbow Theatre 08-31-1977

October 31, 2007

I had two taped copies of this one in the seventies, but never nearly as clean as this one. If you liked the album LIVIN’ ON THE FAULT LINE, you’ll love this show!

I’ve only got a couple of Elvin Bishop live where Mickey Thomas was part of the band, and this is the shortest one. I highly recommend it!

This great, short set was recorded on November 3, 1972 at the Syria Mosque in Pittsburgh, PA. What’s really great about this one (other than the ten-minute version of “Frankenstein”), is the guitarist, Ronnie Montrose!
