    Very Cool!
    I caught on to Bruce a little late – “Circles in the Stream” was my first exposure – sometime in late ’79. I remember that Fall introduced me to Bruce, Leo Kottke, and Nils Lofgren; it was my “who else plays guitar out there?” autumn…

    That is an excellent live album, SOFA. “Circles in the Stream” has always been one of my favorite live albums, particularly the track, “Dialogue with the Devil”. He has only performed it live a handful of times since its release. I always keep an eye out for the video release whenever it’s posted on YouTube…
