  4. I feel a bit embarrassed but can you repost those two Ronnie gigs please in zippy when you find the time. thank you.

  5. Thanks for all that you do for us

  6. I saw this tour in San Diego in 90. One of the all time shows I ever saw period. So glad to see a recording with that outstanding Band. Darrell Nulisch was awesome on vox. Mr Earl was flat out fantastic,, Never heard of him when we saw him at the SD street scene. End of show Ronnie mentions they would play at this hole called Winstons in Ocean Beach the next night. Of course we went and watched another barnburner with maybe 60 other people. Met the band between sets. This and Stevie in 85 are the best live sets I ever saw. THanks. I have been trying to find a recording of this for 30 years! Cheers Andy

  7. Repost, PLEASE?
