This blurry but worthy slice of music of history is of The Blues Brothers Band (Closing of Winterland NYE ’78-’79), from house right seats. This was the original ensemble [from top center down: Paul Shaffer, Donald ‘Duck’ Dunn, Steve Cropper, Matt ‘Guitar’ Murphy, Jake Blues (Elwood bending over downstage of Paul), the Tom Scott Horns (Tom Scott, Alan Rubin, Lou Marini, ?unknown?), drummer believed to be Steve Jordan.] which was disbanded not many gigs after this one.
Confetti covers the early morning stage of 1979 with the Grateful Dead fully in control. [From left to right: Lee Oskar, Jerry Garcia, Greg Errico, Phil Lesh & John Cipollina (both back to). Keith & Donna Godchaux, Mickey Hart out of frame.]
