Arrow Live in Boston 10/18/1975

Really good quality. Its so strange to hear the audience cheer at the classic Mac songs more than the new stuff the audience does not know. It warms my heart when the audience roars when Christine starts singing Spare Me A Little.

Love this show, opening for Jefferson Starship during their Red Octopus tour. I wonder if Grace and Stevie ever interacted back then.

I loooove these White Album shows. Lindsey & Stevie breathe new life into old Mac songs and make them really interesting. The band just seems so much more cohesive and less fractured.

Red Octupus was a #1 album and no doubt they were getting good crowds. Its amazing how fast the Mac exploded from 1975-1976. In mid 1975 they were playing small theaters before the White Album was released. By late 1975 they were the opening act and playing arenas. By Sept 1976 the White Album was #1 and that summer they were playing stadiums with other acts. Things were never the same. They were all millionaires by 1976.
On another note, Bobbye Hall played percussion on the Red Octupus album. I wonder if she toured with Jefferson Starship and this is when Stevie first met her.

I have wondered this, too, especially given that Stevie cites Grace as an influence.

There was talk (which Stevie refuted) that she and Paul Kanter had a thing. I imagine this rumor may have emerged from some repeated social interaction between the bands during the tour?

Not to mention Grace seemingly was pointing at SN being too old to perform. (As far back as 1997)

On another note, holy sh*t was an amazing concert. I cant even imagine sitting through White Rabbit, Miracles, Dont You Want Somebody To Love, Count On Me , etc along with all those classic Mac songs with a new Mac material that few knew.

Grace was still at her peak because in another 3 years she would flame out and get fired for her drunken antics on stage in 1978.

Where is the time machine so we can go back

Her suggesting this in 1997 was an example of Grace’s eccentric “worldview” whereas saying the whole band looked too old in 2014–well, she wasn’t exactly wrong.

I gleefully paid to see the Mac in 2014. I wouldn’t have paid to see Jefferson Starship at that time—or even 20 years before that. I did see them in 1984. A mess of a show that nonetheless was entertaining.

That was the Nuclear Furniture tour, correct? Didn't they open with somebody to love? Nuclear Furniture has some great songs but the album was a total flop but 2 songs did get heavy rock station play. Because of the flop, they rebranded and became "Starship" and became radio friendly pop crap. It was commercially successful but such crap that Grace left the band.
Why was the show a mess? I am probably the only Nuclear Furniture fan

Thank you for posting. That was a good Rhiannon with a good workout on her voice. The band and the audience really appreciated it.

I loved this song. The progression of the synth chords and melody grabbed me.
