The 8th show of the winter '79 tour was the first of two nights at the Spectrum in Philadelphia.
We left Chicago early on a very cold morning after the show there. A very needed day off on the tour, which we used to drive across Interstate 80/90 from Chicago to Philadelphia. We were in a AMC Pacer I borrowed from my brother after my Datsun B210 had ground to a halt in Detroit, two shows earlier. Not only didn't the pacer have much heat, it also had a hole in the floorboard behind the gas peddle, occasionally letting snow flurries into the car! The miles of turnpikes were accompanied by a 'Best of Elvis' set of 8-track tapes my brother had in the car (the radio got very sparse for most of the trip). As I recall, somewhere on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, north of Pittsburgh, we were at Howard Johnson's rest stop and we came across Donnie Iris and his band...ahh, life on the road...
We arrived in the evening in Philadelphia, and checked into our hotel, which was most famous for being the home of the Legionnaires disease. The Who were staying there also, and at some point in the next 2 days we were able to do a interview with John Entwistle, who couldn't have been nicer!
The first night's show featured a surprise appearance of John's 'terrible' 8-string bass for the only version of 'Trick Of The Light' on this leg of the tour, and I think the last time it was played until the 1989 tour. Pete switched to 4-string bass for this song using one of John's older Alembic basses. Also the encore featured a Pete improvasation called 'Take A Fool' before ending with 'How Can You Do It Alone?". All in all another great performance.
