A odd gig with Solomon’s set sandwiched between sets by John Spencer Blues Explosion. Don’t know if I’ve shared this before but with the man’s passing I thought it would be right.
And no, I didn’t record JSBE sets.

Recorded with – probably at Sharp MD recorder and Sound Professional mics: from right hand side of the front stalls
