Going to have a few Crossmen shows running though my head today. Nothing wrong with that, nothing at all. Thanks for the music Mr. Mays.

Bd and the Bushwackers to my knowledge are the first corps to bring Metheny and Mays to the field in 85

Actually BDB was the first in 1981. They played Ozark, I believe. Madison played it in 83 and Cavaliers in 84.

Really unique sound - love First Circle (and the time signature 😀), and Heat of the Day.  

Was introduced to First Circle via ‘85 BD on the PBS broadcast.

RIP.

On YT there’s a live PMG video of “First Circle,” 1989 Montreal Canada.

Have lost count of the number of times I’ve viewed it over the years, and Lyle Mays’ keyboard feature during that performance still leaves me breathless.
