Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, held indoors at the University’s 'Center', with Child the lone act on the bill. "KT-88", an instrumental, is introduced by Bruce as a new creation. This is the only circulating performance of "Sister Theresa" and the flute-like sound heard on this track (and others in this show) is a recorder being played by Vini Lopez. Over the years there has been considerable speculation regarding the time and location of this audio. The earliest traded specimens of this audio identified the source as a date unspecified 1969 gig at a Richmond club called 'The String Factory'. Since no verified gig date at The String Factory was found in any early timeline sources, some collectors began assigning the audio to other gig dates. Consequently this audio has been linked to a plethora of shows from 1969 and 1970. It turns out that the early source identification was fairly accurate. This material is indeed from 1969 in Richmond, but it’s from 'The Center', which changed its name to 'The String Factory' in the fall of 1970. This performance is prior to March 1970, as it features Vinnie Roslin on bass and background vocals. Although there were several shows at The Center during the Vinnie Roslin era, the sound of a heavy thunderstorm can be heard outside the building during "Garden State Parkway Blues" this allows the candidate gigs from the winter months to be eliminated. Note: this audio may be from the previous evening’s performance on September 19.
