Stage East, Stuart, Florida
December 15, 1982
Randy’s show was plagued with sound problems, especially on “Deep Inside My Heart” and “Never Been In Love.” Nevertheless, he remained friendly and pleasant onstage, even with his crew, who had to turn off a spotlight that was burning the side of his face. Both reviews below include portions of a backstage interview with Randy, who talked about his future plans, including an upcoming tour of Japan (“for some reason they love me over there”), as well as recording and producing a new album the next year in Dallas with live sound engineer Buford Jones. This album ended up as the Dallas LP, which was recorded at Nick’s Uptown Theater and released in Japan in 1983. It was reissued on CD in the U.S. as Live In Dallas in 2003.
