    Manny I played it in Philly, at the Dell (outside). It must have been the same year. I think it was 76, but it could have been 77.

    I did play it at Carnegie with Philly in Dec 1977 so it must have been 76 with La Scala. Or maybe 75? I don't think so. In NY I was playing upstairs in a box right off stage. A little old lady got in my way so I had a hard time emptying my spit valve. I could have dumped it right in her blue hair.
