One of the funniest stories ever as the intro to 'I Wanna Marry You' about a letter asking the band to play at a wedding reception for 50$ each.

Another amazing River tour show in above average sound quality. Sound goes from excellent to average at some points.

"It *was* his first arena show in Chicago, though 10/10-11/80 were *not* the last shows ever at the Uptown. (It closed in 1981--J. Geils and a few others played there after Bruce.) They added this show after Bruce mentioned (on stage) they got so many letters from people who couldn't get into the Uptown. I remember that night well, people standing on the sidewalk on Broadway waving $100 bills, just desperate to get in." -bbison

Thanks to the taper Rick B. - amazing recording (as all of yours).

Note that the sound on this one isn't the greatest but the performance really makes up for it. I'm assuming this is a clear improvement over Piggham's 'Wreck On The Highway' which has been requested here by a few.
