Concert #47 - Robert Cray at the Universal Amphitheater (January 28, 1989)
My second time to catch Robert Cray, after having seen his excellent opening set for Eric Clapton in 1987. This show was less memorable. I can't remember whether he played "Right Next Door" and "Smokin' Gun", my favorite songs from "Strong Persuader", his then-current album. By the way, my son Danny still plays those two songs.
The opening act was my fellow-Claremonter David Lindley, who played a few different guitars, as usual. It was my introduction to his music.
