2020 UPDATE: New Gene Poole source for this that's an upgrade, to my ears. I only had time to post the FLAC version, so the MP3 version here is still from the original source. HUGE THANKS to elegymart for sharing the GP version, and to HJ for taping and dB’s Fan for sharing the older one. Highlights here are 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.
