ROB SEZ: It's been quite a while since I've had something to post from Peter, so it's a delight to share one recent solo show and another from nearly 32 years (!) ago. On a personal note, I'm thrilled that Peter played one of my all-time favorite songs in his 2017 set: "She Won't Drive In the Rain Anymore" from the dB's Falling Off the Sky album. The dB's chose not to play it in concert, so it's great to hear Peter perform it for a live audience. Special thanks to Solar Wind for taping & sharing the 2017 set, and to whomever did the same for the 1985 show. I'm guessing the latter came to me via dB's Fan, though I cannot recall for sure.
