Default Milwaukee 1986 or so

When I was a kid and in college in the midwest, I saw Gord numerous times at Ravinia. But 1986, I think, he played in Milwaukee, so I drove up from Chicago and made a little cassette recording of the show. Backstage, I met a photographer who took these pix--and we made a trade.

Thought they may be of interest!

WOW... pictures are super. There weren't too many times, if any, that GL looked like this when I saw him.

Great Job... WOW

Circa 1986 would be around the time EAST OF MIDNIGHT was being promoted. I remember seeing him perform your song around that time, Char, as he sat on a stool by himself with only his acoustic guitar to accompany him -- that mesmerizing voice -- so intimate.

Be nice if a version of that exists on the cassette.

I loved when he sat on the stool and sang...luverly!!
Who knew all these years later it would end up being 'my' song..!

There's some tv footage of him at Massey sitting on the stool and singing it..somewhere in my treasure trove of goodies...
James probably has it as well...James???

As I recall, he opened the second set on the piano bench, solo, and did "I'll Tag Along", and then Terry joined him for an acoustic version of "East of Midnight".

I also remember Gord singing "Anything For Love" to the backing track of the song, without a guitar on, with the band backstage. Slightly surreal!

I'll see if I can dig up the recording of this Riverside Theater show.

Could it possibly have been 6 June 1987? During that concert he played I'll Tag Along followed by East of Midnight followed by A Lesson in Love.

Yes, must have been 1987. The picture of the marquee confirms it was June 6!
