67 Unexpected Instrumentals

The show was mainly about instrumentals that had been made by vocal bands, with a few others that were unexpected in other ways.

The preshow was all tracks that missed out on being in the main show, because they were’nt unexpected enough or because we’d played them recently.  The version of Soul Sscrifice from Woodstock contains the best drum solo that Mike Shrieve ever recorded, which must have been a bit of an albatross for his subsequent career – he was just 19 at the time.
