“Set 2: Tracks 1-5” is the sixth video in a series of nine clips (including the complete version), which tell the story of the Skafish release, “BOOTLEG 21-35,” the first ever official live Skafish album.
In this clip, I discuss the musical, conceptual, and lyrical components of the first 5 tracks of the second set from my 21st birthday concert at Ratso’s in Chicago on August 29, 1977. I also talk about the personal, emotionally-driven and often painful aspects of why I wrote each of these pieces, and the contributions of my incredible band.

The commentary was performed at Thunderclap Recording, Hammond, Indiana, and engineered by John Carpenter. The piece was filmed and edited by Guy Rhodes.
Special Thanks: Scott Cameron, Glinda Harrison, and to the band: Larry Mazalan, Karen Winner, David Prochazka, Greg Sarchet, and Larry Mysliwiec
I hope you enjoy the unfolding story of the bootleg and the revolutionary spirit of its message,
