Letch Actively - Winston-Salem 1985 (F.H. memorial)


Reynolds High School Auditorium
Winston-Salem, NC
Feb. 12, 1985
Faye Hunter memorial post

audience recording (sound quality VG; good-sounding show with virtually no distracting crowd noise; vocals sound a bit distant at times)

Highlight: it’s the ultimate hometown show & venue: Winston-Salem is where Mitch & Faye grew up and both are graduates of Reynolds High School.  

Feel the enthusiasm of the band and listen 
to the sound of the adoring crowd.

Mitch & Faye are in the middle — the two with “the hair”
