It's looking like we'll get a year in which she can play Cheap Trick (the better to promote their KFOG Playspace appearance).

I chimed in to suggest a "Jesus Rock" set on Good Friday, which got a number of "like"s I'm pleased to say.

and sure enuf...  '77 begins with the orig studio version of "IWYTWM".  Always nice to hear this instead if the overexposed live take.

This gives me hope for the rest of the set. The stuff that was on the charts in '77 was largely shite so anything that deviates from that is probably a plus.
Let's get right to it.

EC waits for the end -- BOS2 just for not being "... Red Shoes" or "Alison"

BTW 'snipes consensus is that the studio version of the Cheap Trick song is "lame". Can't please everybody.

I actually like it better, but I'm not a fan of the live version at all...

Annie Hall is a dead shark, clip-wise.  And Steve Miller flies his airliner.

It's vastly different than the live version, and frankly I wasn't a fan of the original at first, but yeah, I like it just fine now. A nice showcase for Rick Nielsen's guitar picking skillz.

That said, I'm not surprised that the Snipey consensus is thumbs down.
