I've told a couple of people in the past week that Blue As A Jewel was not only the first time the listeners heard your e-bow playing, but that it was from 1978, appearing first as a B-side to the Panic In The World single.
Feels like I've got that information wrong because Blue As A Jewel is included in the Sunburst Finish reissue and I remember being either age 10 or age 11 when I first heard Sunburst Finish as a new release on a seriously booming system in 1976 in the car of a significantly older friend of mine and I was wearing a pair of red-white-and-blue-rimmed sunglasses a gal pal gave me. We were en route or coming back from sling-shot shooting at Mt. Diablo (in Northern California).
Nineteen seventy-six is obviously not nineteen seventy-eight!
