Berkeley 18 September

18 Sept.

Traffic from the Oakland airport to Berkeley was… well, Californian. Once we arrived it was The Greek as usual, friendly staff, great catering, etc. As for the show, it was as we’d always remembered as well. What a fantastic audience, full house and couldn’t be more appreciative. The thunderous ovation at the end was remarkable. MK played as well as I’d ever heard and the band as well. Thanks, Berkeley, Oakland and San Fransisco. A runner down to L.A. where we will base for the next several days. It’s great seeing palm trees again…. back to one of my hometowns and one that was very important in my younger days of doing three record dates a day back in the late ‘60s until we moved to Nashville in the mid-‘80s. Day off tomorrow.
