Too Much Alcohol [Whispering Souls Authentic Vinyl Records, No. 226/500, 2CD]
Live at the Bottom Line, New York, NYC; November
December 11, 1978 (late show). Very good soundboard.
We just wanted to do a club tour without getting involved in a big mishmash of a concert tour with Aerosmith, which we had done previously by doing this theater and that theater. This time it was basic - let’s go back and play clubs for a tour and have fun. Especially now with a new lineup, this has been great. It is tough doing two shows a night, because I don’t do two 45-minute shows, I do two to three hours. It was great at the El Macambo in Toronto. There again we could have done a theater. We did the Bottom Line in New York for a couple of nights. We did this kind of thing throughout. It gets your feet back on the ground.
- Rory Gallagher, December 1978.
Thanks to weezerdude for sharing the tracks at Dime.
weezerdude noted: “Rory seemed to have a cold during this US tour so his vocals are a bit weak but his guitar playing is excellent, as always.”
