Todd, Kasim, Roger, and Willie bootleg action!  The Ever Popular Tortured Bootlegger Warren has done it again.  This is from a Kansas City show in 1978 and not the one that has been circulating around for years - this one is brand new to your ears!  It was taken from a cassette so don't expect perfection but it's still a worthwhile listen.

From Warren ...

First and foremost, this is not the 1978-10-17 One Block West KC recording that is currently 'out there' in circulation. That is a local radio broadcast
of the first set that night.
THIS IS A MAGNIFICENT audience recording (MASTER Tape) of the second Show by Geoff Laurenzo. I know that I use the term 'soundboardish' a lot... but this a 'pro-grade' recording. What's funny is this was an old dirty broken cassette Geoff had just recently relocated. And asked me to see what I could do with it. I did have to put it in a new cassette shell.  A labor of love, for I had to do little to this one other than leveling the channels and splitting the tracks.  All performances are flawless, unfortunately we only get a small portion of the show due to only one tape. And Geoff had inadvertantly recorded over some  of it with other artists.But I'm very excited about what we have here and being able to share this 'Back To The Bars' Era recording here. This one is ESSENTIAL. Thank you Geoff Laurenzo for 'striking' once again with a collectors gem!~ Warren
