Re: I'm Not Supposed To Care on James at 15

That show morphed into "James At 16". I believe Lance Kerwin is now some kind of holy roller in Canada.

Re: Lightfoot At The Count Basie Theater In Red Bank, NJ (10/6/10)

Lightfoot At The Count Basie Theater In Red Bank, NJ (10/6/10)

Went to the concert in Red Bank, NJ. It was my fifth Lightfoot show. It was cozy as usual but once again, he really has to get rid of the capos on his guitars as his vocals are suffering big time....
