There used to be a copy of this going in the trade forum, but it didn't have One Way Out on it. Happy to see the new footage!

I can clearly remember seeing the band with Berry twice..once with Duane (Stonybrook) also another outdoor concert after Duane, but apparently I was at this concert too, because there I am with my childhood sweetheart

That version of One Way Out has been on Youtube before (but wasn't a part of the VHS copy I had years ago).

That was a uniquely powerful lineup of the band. I would have loved to have seen where the Berry-Chuck lineup could have gone.

I agree that the potential for something truly powerful was there, but frankly I didn't see it in those clips. Those 3 tunes may not be a fair representation of that lineup live, but I thought Berry looked and sounded uninspired. Hell, Butch looked like he was in a trance the whole time, and not in a good way.

Everything I've read and heard about Dickey holding the band up on his shoulders at that time was very evident to me in those clips. Adding Chuck was brilliant, as well.

Fantastic footage! I don't think I've ever seen Berry's hair so short!

I wouldn't be too hard on The Brothers while filming a TV show. That kind of thing might be kinda nerve wracking or boring or both. Nothing like being asked to be inspired when TV directors say "action".

I hear and see an intense and at times groovy band on Ramblin Man and Whipping Post (in particular WP). Love the electric piano solo which I'm sure the audience may not have been quite ready for. One Way Out was a little thin sounding.

Unfortunately, I believe that those 3 tunes are the only representation of that line-up live ... because I seem to recall that that show was not only Berry's last but also Chuck's first ...

There should be more; if I remember it was a double edition of In Concert. I may be wrong; I was only 13.

This was recorded just a few days after the 1st anniversary of Duane's death - so you have to think that was weighing heavily on them - being on national TV without him.

Chuck, as always is great, but this was my least favorite period for Dickey's playing - at least live. His tone changed when he stopped playing Goldie - got thinner and cleaner - and it seems to me, that in general, he plays better when another player - be it Duane, or Warren or Dan Toler - is pushing him a bit.

ABBDutchfan -{wow, that's a cool way to find out you were at that show!}

here's the funny thing, Jack , God rest his soul, had sent our daughter Heather a video years ago, the ABB at the Capitol Theatre in Jersey, and in the first few minutes, there was my childhood sweetheart on line outside the theatre, that was a real jolt.

That's my Fred, in the first few minutes just b4 the Brothers walk out on stage, very tall, he was always laughing when we were together..he has his arm in a sling from schoolyard basketball/brawl . Im on Fred's right, looking around at the crowd like Im in shock.

I bet Fred drove us to the concert in his Dad's car, one of those baby blue Chevys , maybe a Belair or something like that, isnt Hoftra U on LI?


Anyway, the video triggered good memories, even tho I cant remember being at this concert for the life of me.

This footage has always creeped me out.

At the 12:24 mark of this particular version, Berry looks to be too high to know what's going on, blinking into the abyss. Dickey taps him on the arm to bring him back to the situation at hand. Berry looks over where Dickey tapped him, dazed and confused as to what had just happened to his arm. Dickey then plays Rock Star.

Did Dickey carry the band at this time, or was he too much on a Star Trip that he didn't care if Berry was in a downward spiral and therefore didn't notice the signs? I guess that question goes for the whole band.
