Gord's vocals a bit weak early but improved as the evening went on, as always seems to be the case. Sounded great in the second set.

A large contingent of us finished the "over me" in Ribbon of Darkness. The crowd giggled, Gord grinned and said "I may have to hire you folks!" Then the unmistakeable intro to Sundown.

Introduced Fine As Fine Can Be by explaining it was written for his first daughter when she was 10 years old. "10 years old! That was a long time ago. I used to have her come on the stage while I sang it at the piano. Later I thought it was a bit sappy. But it's a good song."

Carter got applause several times for solo work which he acknowledged with a smile and a bow of his head. Gord had the whole band stand up after The Wreck and If You Could Read My Mind, both of which got long applause and deservedly so.

Was surprised to hear Song for A Winter's Night since it's almost spring (I hope). But I never tire of hearing it. Was hoping to hear Now and Then, a personal favorite which I've never heard live. Maybe another time.

Gord said "we haven't been here in 14 years!". My friends and I were at that show too. It was in November of 2000 at Jesse Auditorium on the Mizzou Campus a few blocks away. This show was at the beautiful Missouri Theatre and appeared to be sold out.

That's about all I can think of. Another great show.
