Unimpressed with the sound man at sound check.  Pre-show dinner at Bud’s down the street.  Sparsely attended, which probably attributed to Peter’s comment before mounting the stage:  “Well, we might as well get this over with…”  So began one of the most impassioned sets I’ve ever witnessed by him and it is criminal that hardly anyone was there…a fantastic selection of songs delivered with complete gusto with Peter in great voice.  Even Peter knew the set was special; when he came off stage he asked me “you taped that right?” and I had to admit that I hadn’t…Peter never inquires about taping shows, but he knew this one had been unique.  Happy 45th birthday to Bart.
