TUNES (disc one - 68:06)
The Kenton band was alive and well for its return engagement at the Golden Lion in Dayton, Ohio in October 1970. Any brick wall within a mile of the club needed to be repointed after Stan and his world-class musicians completed their sortie, another of the hits and runs common to road bands. This tour was one of the opening forays of the magnificent Kenton bands of the 70s.
