'All the dead little fishies'

Procol on a barge, May 1992


Tony Kovacs writes to BtP in answer to another Paler's question about a PH gig in 1992:

Can anyone pinpoint the exact date of a gig that Howard Christie recalls as follows: 'May 1992. Lake Erie lakefront around our Memorial day which is usually the last Monday in May. I think the PH show was on the first night, a Wednesday prior to the holiday weekend. Donnie Iris opened for them. I went with a friend from work and froze in the front row with PH on a barge in the lake.' ?

Don't take this too literally ... the organist should be Don Snow

I was at the concert in Cleveland where they played on a barge on Lake Erie. It was the Tuesday before the Toronto concert : I went to both. It was the first time I had seen them play since 1977 and the last two times since.

I have made a little picture of the concert. This image is of the Cuyahoga just off Lake Erie, not exactly where the barge was, but close. There were dead fishes floating in the Lake because Gary made note of 'all the dead little fishies'.

Few people where there but it was good to see them live again. A Salty Dog was most impressive because of the Lighthouse that was visible off to my left.
