St. Catharines, ON


Coming Off The Moon, Marmalade Mama, Blowing The Blues Away, Only Your Nose Knows, Toronto Tontos, Here Among The Cats, Lily, Hangover


Marmalade Mama is a bluesy original that the band often played in this period, which Kim plays slide guitar on. Mike Tilka's banter at the show suggests the song was recorded for the debut LP, but ultimately left unreleased.

Tilka says their debut album will be released on December 15, but it actually wouldn't come out for another five months after that.

Although it seems none of the material that would appear on High Class In Borrowed Shoes has been written by this point, between songs Kim sings "you come across like diamonds diamonds."

The Rush audience slowly warmed up to the band as the show progressed, and after Hangover they were hoping for an encore.
