Flo and Eddie (The Turtles), appeared to be half toasted, and were pretty effective comedically, and did what they do - vocals - reasonably well. They were funny. Jack Bruce did a half hour pure Cream set, and sounded damned good. His guitarist was excellent, and his voice is still very strong. Excellent show. He introduced the band, but I was unable to understand the names through the Fiddler's sound system. Eric Burden's voice is still remarkably powerful, and he truly put on an excellent 40 minute or so show. I was afraid we had wasted our time coming early on, but both Bruce and Burden were excellent. Good night of music.
That sounds like a cool show. I'm always afraid of going to revue shows of 50's and 60's artists because I don't want to see a cabaret, Vegas-like performance (like The Monkees reunion tours) instead of seeing an actual band play. Glad to hear you lucked out.
