My first post. Eric has done Austin City Limits 4 times. This was his first. In 1985, Eric's solo debut "Tones" was due to be released in 5 months. The album would get a lot of coverage in the guitar magazines but really did not sell much at all. Ah Via Musicom would be his breakthrough 5 years later.

The quality of the audio is not as good as I would have hoped. I transfered it from vhs. I have looked for years and never found any version of this show on the internet.

This show was taped a few months before Tones was released (Soulful Terrain and Bristol Shore appeared on that album). Cliffs of Dover and Manhattan would not appear until Ah Via Musicom in 1990. I am not aware of Tribute to Jerry Reed and Tell Her I'm Sorry ever appearing on any album.
