Thank you again Rocking Byrd. Another great concert. Roger and Clarence seem to add bits and improvise over very familiar material which gives it a really fresh feel.I never get bored with these shows .Best wishes Kevin

Thanks again for this and the three that you restored for me. They are coming so fast and furiously that I am barely getting a chance to listen to them but I know they will be excellent.
If it is not too much trouble, could you restore the Manassas concerts that I don't have in my collection already:
Buffalo Memorial Auditorium NY 09-09-1972
Sundown Club London UK 10-08-1972
Bananafish Gardens NYC 04-16-1973
Georgia Tech GA 05-15-1972.

All the best
Edwin Deas
