ROB SEZ: Trying this one again, with fingers crossed. An unfounded legal claim was made last time I posted this show, but that was years ago...

HEAP O’ THANKS to HJ for taping and dB’s Fan for sharing

HIGHLIGHTS: too numerous to mention. But Peter sounds pumped to be playing this historic venue and offers up several new tunes (some of which were later re-written, while others were never released), as well as plenty of choice covers. Sadly, Folk City closed in 1987.
