Toronto, ON

Setlist Included:

Words To Words, In Context Of The Moon, America's Veins, Gravity, Let Your Man Fly, Diamonds Diamonds, High Class In Borrowed Shoes, Rain Child

Details:

This setlist is clearly a partial one, as they normally played three or four sets in the bars.

Most of the songs are arranged differently in some way from what would end up on their next two albums. Let Your Man Fly is particularly interesting, as Terry sings the lead vocal on his composition (he does so on every known live recording of it through 1979) instead of Kim.

The various tapes and reviews from this period indicate that at least half of the Max Webster catalog had already been written by 1976. Even though their first album has only been out for a few months, they are already playing material from what would end up on their next three albums. Hawaii, Beyond The Moon, Research (at Beach Resorts), Battle Scar, and Blue River Liquor Shine were all performed around this time as well.
