February 6, 1978

Hill Park Secondary School

Hamilton, ON

Setlist Included:

Gravity, The Party, Beyond The Moon, Rain Child, In Context Of The Moon, On The Road, Lily, Diamonds Diamonds, Research (at Beach Resorts), Here Among The Cats, Hangover, America's Veins


Gravity is the last song of the first set, and the second set begins with The Party, still unknown to the audience at this point.

This is the last known live airing of the full band version of On The Road.

What began as a half-hour long piece long before it was recorded for the Max Webster debut album, Lily is now reduced to six and a half minutes in length (the piano breakdown has been excised, and there's a different transition to the ending). The song would soon be dropped from the set.

Research (at Beach Resorts) is a much looser version with a whole different set of lyrics and extended solos by Kim and Terry. Even though it wasn't released until 1979 on A Million Vacations, it often featured in their live show as far back as 1975.
