Info & Setlist | Venue

One show, double bill, with Steel Mill opening for headliner The Ike And Tina Turner Revue. A soul band and a progressive rock group were a strange billing combination, consequently, it’s perhaps not surprising that less than half the tickets to the 3,000-seat Mosque were sold. Former Back Door Club owner John Richardson, who orchestrated the event, has stated that he lost a fair chunk of money on this show. As undercard Steel Mill would have played about 60-70 minutes. The audio evidence supports reports that the venue was half empty. The crowd reaction to Steel Mill is polite but indifferent, an indicator the band wasn’t headlining. "Why'd You Do That" includes a customized refrain mentioning the town of Woodland Falls that seems to have been used only when playing in Virginia. "Goin’ Back To Georgia" features Bruce and Robbin Thompson alternating the lead vocal.
