Here is the diary entry by Jody:

Madison Square Gardens....We got to the "garden" at five and spent the sound check rehearsing the new arrangement for the song we're playing on LETTERMAN, tune in on Monday to find out which song we're playing.... Any way, the show was a stormer, we played to a full house of 14,000, and it was the tightest show of the tour (in my opinion!) We got fantastic reviews in the NY Post, Hollywood Reporter, Daily News and Variety to name but a few. Photographs will be posted as soon as Tom (our money-man) takes me shopping for the new camera....

Stabbing Westward was the support act. Jay Serken (one of the kids on the bus in '101'), Chris Hegedus and D.A. Pennebaker were in attendance.

  • Source 1 is Smores' good master audience recording. It's somewhat muffled and distant sounding. Bass can be a bit overpowering.
