Brand X - Live at The Cellar Door, Washington, D.C., U.S.A., October 18, 1977 [FLAC]

"The Cellar Door" was a very small, but great room that held about 200 people packed in like sardines. Years later DC's Fire Marshal's forced the club to reduce their capacity to about 125 people. The club tried to continue, but financially couldn't do it. I believe today it houses the office of Cellar Door Productions, which is or was a major booking agency, if they are still around.
Brand X were a great Jazz Fusion group started up as a side rpoject with Phil Collins from Genesis, back when they were still a Prog act. Phil generally only recorded with them, and all the shows I saw, he was not present. I think this is by far the best recording I got of them.

I was lucky enough to catch Brand X at the Bottom Line in NYC in 1979(?). Phil was there, late for the show and with one of the biggest beards that I have ever seen! A terrific show.Keep up the great work and THANK YOU!
