Captain’s Dead Report:
Click here to go to Captain’s Dead to check a batch of live Cars at The El Mocambo 9-14-78. The setlist: Intro, Good Times Roll, Bye Bye Love, Nightspots, My Best Friends Girl, Moving In Stereo, Since I Held You, They Won’t See You, Don’t Cha Stop, Just What I Needed, Candy-O
Great sounding live show…not many good live Cars shows floating around. Plus the setlist is made up of the debut & Candy-O. It doesn’t get any better than that!
A tip of the hat to the Captain.
