Prism play two shows worth of hits

 While I missed the officially scheduled  show on Thursday they had a day off, so played a free second show the next day.

 I arrived at the end of one of my favourite Prism songs “Flying”  but got there just in time for another favourite “See Forever Eyes” which is always a highlight because it is the Al Harlow Sings See Forever Eyes.

He jumped all over the stage beaming a mile wide, borrowed a beer bottle for some of the solo, returned it to its owner then finished it off m by rubbing his guitar against his microphone to finish it off.

 It is always a pleasure to watch him perform be you can see it on his face that he  enjoys it as much as  the people watching him.

 I caught a lot of hits like “Young and Restless,” “ Don't Let Him Know,” Harlow’s tribute to original lead singer “the blond street fighter Ron Tabak” who died in a cycling accident in the mid ’80s. They played Tabak’s favourite song “Take Me Away”

 They also dug into their back catalogue for their song about World War Three  “Vladivostok,” which started slow, then picked up the tempo with another one of my favourites “Mirror Man.”
