|Concert Performances: Maine (1977)|
Thank you. Good evening, I'm Leo Kottke, I'll be outta here in just a minute. Thank you Mr. Martin.
[Leo plays "I Called Back"]
A little song about marital discord, despair. Or the lack of it maybe. This is a ballad.
[Leo plays "The Tennessee Toad"] LEO:
It's an abrupt ending.
This is a tune called "Airproofing." It's a little compendium covering stage fright, which in my case involves grabbing the end of my nose...it evidently gives me some cause for security. I've broken the habit and applied it to this tune I hope.

[Leo plays "Fisherman"]
Thank you. It's a special treat for me to be able to do this tune here.
[Leo begins to play "Power Failure" and stops]
Ahhhh.. [Leo makes a sound of disgust and retunes the guitar.]
[Leo plays "Power Failure"]
Thank you. I like to sneak up to the end of the set with a standard more or less. It was written by Sam Magee and his brother Kirk. It segues from there into a couple of thefts from other eras of guitar: Doc Watson, Mitch Greenhill and most notably Tom Paley.
[Leo plays "Last Steam Engine Train/Stealing" medley]
