I'd agree that in the original "Sara" video she is singing in what seems a higher reverb, but not sure if that's the effect of the mike or not. In subsequent live "Sara" performances when she always
goes to Lindsey's mike, not so much a higher reverb. It's part of the traditional performance of the song and it's stuck in Stevie's head. I'm sure she's seen it a million times. I will say it is a magnificent performance!
And the same cape for "Stand Back"?
