Here's a tasty little item I found while cruising the Interwebs today. Bay Area veterans Nick Gravenites (Paul Butterfield Blues Band) and John Cipollina (Quicksilver Messenger Service) celebrating New Year's 1987-1988 at a now-gone but beloved Athens, Greece club called The Rodon. Nick speaks Greek to the audience, the dual lead guitar playing is a joy to hear. The track above -- "You Can't Hurt Me No More" -- is a just a taste. The setlist also incudes Nick's "Born In Chicago" and great covers of Chet Powers' "Get Together" and Robert Johnson's "Walkin Blues".
01 Walkin' Blues (Robert Johnson) (Arranged By Nick Gravenites)
02 Funky News
04 Get Together (Chet Powers)
05 Born In Chicago
06 Small Walk-In Box
07 Four Floors Or Forty
08 You Can't Hurt Me No More
John Cipollina, Nick Gravenites - Guitar, Vocals
Doug Kilmer - Bass, Vocals
Tony Johnson - Drums
The set has all the earmarks of a bootleg, but apparently it was a vinyl release on a now-defunct Greek label.
