And, of course, as a child of the 1980's. . . .



"She led off alone on the intro to 'When U Were Mine,' her guitar thin and high and lonely. Then the rest of the band swelled up under that, with Willy on his electric demon fiddle. Carla and Dan had come up with a bizarre percussive patch for one of the synthesizers, and hung it on the end of the fiddle's phrases. The effect was that of a succession of violins being bitten neatly in half.

Eddi found that the single-minded frenzy of the first set had passed. She still had the crackling energy, but she had a clear head to use it with as well. She tried to make every note glow; she felt the rest of the band respond to that and stretch like a racehorse seeking that one winning length. . . ."

As a child of the 50's, I really enjoyed the video. It reminds me of my old friend Nancy, one of the best scrub nurses I ever worked with. She could move just like Cyndi!

Love it! I am too. The 80s will always be cool in my book. So many memories.
