October, 1972, San Jose Civic Auditorium. "Old Dan's Records" had just been released within a few weeks of that date. It was just Gord, Terry Clements and Rick Haynes. He opened with "The Patriot's Dream". I was surprised he did the whole thing! In later concerts, I learned he doesn't cut anything short. He wasn't playing his usual Gibson 12-string. It was a Martin. He performed "Canadian Railroad Trilogy" about midway through the second set. Didn't say much. I believe he was still feeling the effects of Bell's Palsy. The acoustics in the hall were lousy. Good thing I knew most of the tunes. Had a good time.
