Making It Better: Reconstruction At The Cotati Cabaret, March 8-9, 1979





Early in their brief 1979 career (started on January 30 and 31 in Berkeley), the awesome, incredible, fucking great, mindblowing, fun band named Reconstruction launched into Jimmy Cliff's Strugglin Man and started a short history of runs at the very very small Cotati Cabaret.

There is a great analysis of the venue here:


There is a great write up of Reconstruction here:


Light In Ashes says in here , the very first weekend show of Reconstruction was Friday, March 9 at the tiny Cabaret Cotati.

Just listen!  Jerry and Merl with some hot cool cats, above the stars.
