Toronto, ON

Setlist Included:

Anna Leah, Research (at Beach Resorts), Only Your Nose Knows, Mash Moon In Hawaii, Hoosh Rah, Do You Or Don't You Want To Know, In Context Of The Moon, Coming Off The Moon, Marmalade Mama, Toronto Tontos

Details:

The material that would end up on High Class In Borrowed Shoes is now being written. The working title for In Context Of The Moon is "In Context Of The Stars."

In his keyboard solo spot in Toronto Tontos, Terry Watkinson is starting to sketch out Rain Child, which would end up on the next album as well.

An early version of Hawaii from Mutiny Up My Sleeve is performed during this period, entitled Mash Moon In Hawaii. It is a couple minutes longer than the album version. On this particular occasion Kim leads the band into a bit of Hoosh Rah, a bizarre Zappa-inspired piece of music that would come up now and again.

Kim once said Anna Leah was the second song he ever wrote, and he even wrote the lyrics, which is a rarity. Lily, from the debut Max Webster LP, is the only published song in Kim's extensive canon where he is credited as lyricist.
