I saw this tour in Albany, NY on June 3rd. But the next year with Graham Bonnet they played my hometown in September. We got to meet Herr Blackmore and were greeted by him with "Who the bloody hell are you???". Kind of killed the conversation right there.

man, this is a killer show!!! i've seen several shows at the omni from 1990-1994. we'd drive up from b'ham, al.

now it's long, but i labeled track 5 like this:

guitar solo / still i'm sad / beethoven's 9th symphony (ode to joy) / keyboard solo / drum solo / tchaikovsky's 1812 overture / still i'm sad (reprise)

if it's not perfect, it's close enough. even ritchie may like how i have it. :)

best,
thrasher
