    Between the audio mix, the guys talking over each other, and the sync issue with the video, it's hard to tell for certain, but I think David says that I've Been Lonely Too Long was the first track he sang on.

    You're right! Eddie mis-remembers and whistles. While David says "Lonely Too Long".

    I really should get "Groovin'". Their later LPs are good, too.

    OK, Q: Years ago I saw a rockumentary about '60s rock and I'm confusing
    who I saw but I'd love to see it again. I'm not sure if it was Eddie Brigati
    singing, "How Can I Be Sure" or Gerry Marsden singing, "Don't Let the
    Sun Catch You Crying" and the singer is perched on the back of a truck
    going down an avenue in either London or NYC or similar. I think the
    fellow was wearing a Tweed hat.

    It sounds like organ to me. The sustain gives it away.

    Thanks, that is priceless! Like a cross between the Joe Franklin and Uncle Floyd shows.

    It’s both the stereo and mono mix. The stereo is such a weird mix with pops throughout some songs. Haven’t heard the mono yet.

    I guess Felix's leslie speaker is off to the side someplace just like The Ed Sullivan days when they would have the amps out of camera range

    I believe it was behind the backdrop/screen, the directors choice to keep the stage uncluttered

    At that 2013 show, it is possible that he was using an “electronic” Lesley effect.

    I’m not seeing any amps either, so it’s possible everything was hidden.

    I listened to that disc both mono and stereo mixes . For the most part I thought it sounded pretty good.

    That’s the Collector Choice series from2007 with the young Racscals first four albums with stereo and mono mixes. There were no bonus tracks. Lovely set, glad I have them.

    Listening to stereo Groovin right now and the mix on Find Somebody pings the mix left to right several times.

    I so wanted to go up to NYC and catch the Once Upon a Dream reunion show. Just couldn’t make it.

    And I see Eddie Brigati has been doing solo shows around NYC since Deember.

    Thanks for the photos Steve
