Show Notes

This show was billed as “Halloween Bash – Resurrection of The Sculpture Room”. It marked the 1st known performances of Time Loves A Hero (Little Feat cover), Foam and Donna Lee (Miles Davis and/or Charlie Parker cover). The Costume Contest finalists were Colonel Forbin, Makisupa Policeman, Harrry Hood, The Tire, Tela and The Lizard. The Ethereal Friends Of Jesus were disqualified at the beginning. Trey announced the winners to the tune of Harry Hood. There were 2 “booby prizes”. One was a t-shirt awarded to The Tire and the other was a date with Fish awarded to Colonel Forbin. The second prize was another date with Fish awarded to Tela (it was to be a duel date with Forbin and Tela) and 1st prize was won by Harry Hood following a “screamoff” between The Lizard and Harry. All the finalists were promised that they’d be on “the album cover.” Halley’s Comet featured Richard “Nancy” Wright on guest vocals. The Ballad Of Curtis Loew featured guest Bobby Brown (Tim Rogers) on harmonica. Fish played a trombone solo during Terrapin and a vacuum solo during I Didn’t Know. The intro to Peaches en Regalia was sung rather than played on drums. Russell Remington joined the band on soprano saxophone for the end of set III from Timber (Jerry) through Funky Bitch. It is interesting to note that on Halloween Night, the band members gathered at Ninja Custodian’s gig at Sam’s Tavern in Burlington where Trey reportedly attended dressed as Fish.
