December 31, 1977

Seneca College Field House

Toronto, ON

Setlist Included:

The Party

Details:

This New Year's Eve gig for 3,500 people was Mike Tilka's last with the band until 1990.

The classic audience intro of The Party was recorded at this show (although it was attempted at several others, including this one). After Kim remarked that it would be on their next album, he and the audience then rehearsed it a few times before the final take was taped.

A fan recalls the song itself: "It was quite different than what ended up on the album. Kim did a verse a la Dylan with the 'Everybody must get stoned!' refrain."

Other Bands on the Bill:

Moxy, Wireless
