Sandwiched between the Hampton Casino Ballroom and the Arrowhead Ranch shows during 1991's Horn Tour, was the incendiary night at the Somerville Theater. Everything seemed to smoke a little harder that night as the horns and the band were really beginning to nail everything they played all the while having a great time doing it. In this version of "The Landlady", the Horns are particularly on point and blow the roof off of the joint. It is not until the tour's closing night at the Variety Playhouse that the horns play with the same fiery passion & perfection from start to finish. Despite a limited reporitoire through the summer, some definite must listen versions were played throughout the run. Many such stand-out versions were played in Somerville including not only this best of tour Landlady, but also an amazing Divided Sky and stellar versions of Magilla, David Bowie and YEM.
Every Friday, we highlight a video with a brief recap of the show it is from and what makes it interesting, noteworthy or simply fun.
