Authorized Bootleg

Grade: *****


By Michael Lovett

First of all let's give a hallelujah to the late great Bill Graham for having the foresight to record this concert at San Francisco's Warfield Theatre , February 27, 1989...The brothers Neville were on fire that night!! From the opening funk of "Fire On The Bayou" followed by riveting version of "Hey Pockey Way " into a jolting version of Frank Loesser's "Junk Man". They were firing on all cylinders!

There are several medleys on this set. The first, is a funk medley of Brother John/Do You Want to Dance/Banana Boat Song (Day-O),a Rock n Roll medley of Johnny b. Goode/Boney Maronie/Dizzy miss Lizzie/Slow Down/Rip It Up/Oh Boy!/Long"One Love, one has to be eternally grateful to Mr. Graham for preserving this historic night.
