I remember this show quiet well. It was a very cold night and Leslie West pf Mountain opened the show which I did miss. I remembered that Johnny Winter played first, Alvin was the head liner this night. Folks this was 18 years ago.
My thoughts of this show was, that both guitarists played such excellent sets. That the only problem is they did not jam together. I´m not certain if they even met back stage. But that would have been of something to have two of the greatest guitarists jam together, when they were both in peak form.
Ok, no jam session, but real good handmade music .. enjoy it ! It´s not necessary to write which guitarplayer played on which song, I´m sure you will hear the difference !

Most reviews of post-war Goodman records are based on the thesis that
"things ain't what they used to be". Obviously, at this point in time,
Goodman is not the dynamic force or leading figure he was three decades
ago so let us just accept Benny's records for what they are. Tese 12
titles are strung together (and how I loathe the now-obligatory
'programme' demanded by LP compilers!) by tenuous links with France, and
Benny sounds as if he enjoyed the session. The rhythm section is
workmanlike and comprises Goodman's pianist from the 1940 band, Bernie
Leighton, bass player George Duvivier, guitarist Attila Zoller (who gets
too little solo space for he is a fine musician) arid drummer Joe
Marshall, late of Johnny Hodges's little band. On most of the tracks the
front line comprises Goodman flanked by Joe Newman and Urbie Green. The
recorded sound is quite brilliant with a sense of presence which seems
to be part and parcel of the Command label's selling technique. There
are a few fluffs here and there during Goodman's own solos but they are
usually brought about by Benny's uninhibited approach to the faster
tempos. Marshall occasionally lifts the entire group up by its
collective boot-straps and the music takes on a purposeful resolution
which is exhilarating. Strangely enough the sextet swings hardest on the
more unlikely tunes including How Ya Gonna Keep 'Em Down On The Farm
and Mimi. The weakest tracks are those on which Benny plays the melody
slow and fairly straight but as these tracks ate in the minority the LP
may be safely recommended to Goodman collectors and lovers of
swing-style small groups.

Searchers are a British rock band who emerged as part of the 1960s
merseybeat scene along with The Beatles, The Swinging Blues Jeans and
Gerry and the Pacemakers.
band´s hits included a remake of The Drifter´ 1961 hit "Sweets For My
Sweet", remakes of Jackie DeShannon´s "Needley And Pins" and "When You
Walk In The Room", "Sugar And Spice", "Don´t Throw Your Love Away" and a
remake of The Clovers´ "Love Potion No. 9". They were the second group
after the Beatles to have a hit in America when "Needles And Pins"

many similar acts they would do as many as three shows at different
venues in one night. They negotiated a contract with the Star Club in
the St. Pauli distric Hamburg for 128 days, with three one-hour performances a night, starting in July 1962.
all the British bands that recorded at the Star Club in 1962/63, the
Searchers gave the best performance -- polished, exciting, and utterly
professional, lacking the finely honed 12-string guitar sound that their
subsequent hits would display but still a fine testament to their early
work and history. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide

Good early '80s trio session with pianist Horace Parlan working alongside bassist Reggie Johnson and drummer Alvin Queen.
The material, mostly standards with some originals and ballads, isn't overly ambitious, but Parlan's dense, strong blues-influenced solos and good interaction among the three principals keeps things moving.
Recorded live at the "Domicile", Munich/Germany on February 11, 1981
