They hadn’t played together since the Jimmy Carter administration, but you wouldn’t have known it judging by their first performance in more than 35 years. The original line-up of Silver Chicken, one of the Local 518’s premiere country-rock combos of the mid ’70s, reunited for a string a four shows at the Parting Glass in Saratoga Springs last weekend, and the years just seemed to melt away.
The first of their three shows on Saturday (May 4) – at the ungodly hour (by rock & roll standards, at least) of 3pm – was not only a blast from the past. It was simply a blast.
