Audience recording
The recording captures Kramer's
double thump of his bass drum during
 “Back In The Saddle” quite nicely.
Tyler is quiet during the set, but
finally pipes up before
“No More No More.” “How's your
heads tonight. You'all want to sing?
Some vintage Aerosmith...
” The “Oh Well” lines appear in
“Milk Cow Blues” on this night.
“The boys!” Tyler yells as the set
comes to an end.  Not a bad show,
but the band cuts a couple of  tunes
and the whole affair  has a subdued feel.

*Lighting Strikes
recorded live at the york city.ny.usa.february 09th 1984

Oddly, the only piece of this concert that seems to be circulating. But there is some significance: the last live outing of “Lightning Strikes” by the Crespo/Dufay lineup and was its signature song. It was was an important some for the band and helped them through some turbulent times. So good in fact, that when Perry and Whitford returned, the song was revived.
