After seeing the enormous crowd in Studio B the previous day, my friend decided to leave Todd Rundgren early to save me a seat for Alan Parsons. When I arrived at the venue, there was a huge line that snaked through the main dining room, conga-line style. I was so far back that I was convinced I wouldn't even get in. Fortunately, the line moved faster than I expected and I was able to join my friend near the soundboard. To my surprise, all of the seats on the floor had been removed and, in what must be proof of the age of this crowd, the standing area was almost completely empty. I would have immediately headed to the floor if my friend had not left Todd early to save me that seat. As always, I eyed my neighbors suspiciously - there was a drunk guy to my friend's right, and on my left was a gregarious woman. She clapped enthusiasticly at first, but I was relieved when someone handed her a drink. I momentarily thought I was out of the woods but at the end of Don't Answer Me, she leaned over and said directly into my left microphone (in an unusual voice) "I asked him to play that one!" I immediately turned to my friend and said "If she keeps that up I'm going down there." He offered to change seats with me but you'll hear me say, "That guy's no good either." (Obviously, I'm guilty of talking on my own recording but I figured she had already ruined a portion of it and I really didn't care anymore.)Her clap-a-long at the beginning of The Raven did me in, and you'll hear me excuse myself and head to the floor at the end of the song. It was still pretty empty down there but I had to do some minor maneuvering to get away from talkers, some of whom were musicians who should have known better. I only relate this story because you might find it amusing. I think it's pretty funny when I listen to it now.
