– Thank you. Wanna say hello to the Highway 61 Motorcycle Club.
(after Mr. Tambourine Man)
– Thank you. Here’s a song I wrote a few years back, about a couple of
friends of mine who disintegrated. back in the States of
course. (before Simple Twist Of Fate)
– Thank you. You’re awfully kind and wonderful tonight.
We have to introduce to some of these people. On the horns tonight,
the tenor saxophone, flugelhorn, lots of different types of horns,
Mr. Steve Douglas. Standing right next to him is a young man who gave
up the profession of being a preacher to play in this band, playing the
mandolin. He’s a young man but he’s full of talent. We’re trying to
show him around the world, Mr. David Mansfield. Standing next to him
is a man who gave up the profession of being a racing car driver, from
Bogot·, Colombia, on rhythm guitar Steve Soles. Playing the keyboards
tonight, Alan Pasqua. Bass guitar, Rob Stoner. On the drums a young man
who’s playing in just about every group. You’ve probably seen him many
times before, Mr. Ian Wallace. On background vocals tonight we have
three young ladies. On the left is my next door neighbor, Helena Springs.
On the right is a young woman with a great future ahead of her. She’s
going back after this tour to take over the Mormon Tabernacle choir,
Miss Debbie Dye. And in the middle, this is my childhood sweetheart,
I’ve been wanting to sing with her for years and years, Jo Ann Harris.
On the conga drums, Bobbye Hall. Lead guitar, Billy Cross.
Thank you very much we’re gonna play this song. It’s called It’s Alright
Ma, I’m Only Bleeding.
– Thank you very much. Youíve been a very pleasant, kind audience tonight.
We’re gonna hit the road, we have to be in Bangkok to play, tomorrow, 6:30

This is my compilation from 3 different, incomplete source tapes. There is a complete source tape but it’s rather over-recorded and distorted, so it’s not used here.
Tracks 1-9, 15-20 & 28-29 from RickH tape
Tracks 10-14 from Leo’s tape
Track 21-27 from PaulB tape
