Show Notes
• This set features Porter Batiste Stoltz:
George Porter, Jr. - Bass/Vocals, Russell Batiste - Drums/Vocals, Brian Stoltz - Guitar/Vocals

• Notes from the archivist:  Porter Batiste Stoltz settled into Atlanta for what would be the first of two nights.  Kicking it off with "Grits N Hurricanes," the Atlanta, GA crowd at Smith's Olde Bar seemed to know what to expect from the boys.  After standard readings of the popular "I Get High" and Brian's Stoltz's "Sugar For Me," PBS really dug in for an intense "Take A Chance" that had the band taking a lot of chances.  Check out how wild the middle section of the song is, as well as the tail.  The "PBS (Funk The Best) > Not Fade Away > Them Changes > PBS (Funk The Best)" segment included "After Midnight" (J. J. Cale) teases led by Russell and was a lot of fun.  The second set started off with a silly reading of "Doom Doom," a song from Porter Batiste Stoltz's album Expanding The Funkin' Universe that hadn't been played in several months.  You can hear the guys joking about it at the beginning if you listen carefully.  The second set included another super-segue before slowing down for the dead-serious Curtis Mayfield penned "Here But I'm Gone." Russell sent 'em skipping out of the club with the ever-popular "Hokey Pokey," and a "Cissy Strut" fake-out until "Good Old Funky Music" tore the house down. - fB
• "Not Fade Away" included a tease of "After Midnight" (J.J. Cale).
• "Shakey Ground" was played for the first time (Temptations).
• "Atlanta Skips Around" included a "Cissy Strut" (Meters) intro fake-out.

"Great to see Porter Batiste Stoltz (PBS) shows on here! I was hoping more PBS shows would be posted after grabbing the 4 Porter Batiste Stoltz featuring Page McConnell shows (which are insane by the way...). Kinda weird that the PBS shows and the PBS+M shows are in two different sections, but I guess that's because they are two different bands. I noticed the PBS+Kimock shows are the same way (in a separate section). Anyhow, this sounds like it would have been a really fun show to see. The guys are seemingly having a great time on stage. The medley of Meters tunes is nice, I miss the "old" fUNKY Meters when Brian was in the band, so that was a treat. Doom Doom is a funny song, glad to see if back in the rotation. Down By The River > Breathe is musically great even though Brian's voice sounds rough. Overall a great show, please keep 'em coming! Would love to hear some older shows from 2003-2005 if possible. Thanks PBS!"
