Radar Station Overview
This is a 2 record US bootleg with a heavy card cover featuring a black and white photograph on the front of Don wearing sunglasses and looking uncomfortable on a sofa. The labels are black spirals on a yellow background.
A reasonable quality but a bit bass-y recording of an excellent show which includes a rare (but not very successful!) outing for ‘Sure Nuff’.
The crowd sound pretty stoked and Don attempts to calm them down between songs by reciting various lyrics, including ‘Big Dummy’ and ‘China Pig’. He tries to gain their sympathy with “they put these damned lights on me and give me no water!”. He also tells the Roland Kirk and ribs story.
Before ‘Owed T’Alex’ he explains the song’s about Alex St Claire and his tendency to always blame things on his motorbike and then after ‘Electricity’ he says “that song is 25 years old … it’s a square dance .. that’s right … it’s a dance for squares”.
At one point he realises Bruce Fowler is in the audience and, amid much whooping from the audience, tries to get him to join the band on stage, vaguely asking someone “do you have a trombone?”.
