Geography counts for me. If I were in town I would always wait til after seeng the show before listening to an album. In 77 I kept the LP of I LOVE MY WIFE on the back of the shelf for three months till I saw the show at the end of the summer. Even when I drove up to Toronto in 94(95?) to see SHOW BOAT, I did not look at the list of songs in the playbill, so I could be 'surprised' by what Eleven o clock number Prince chose for the show.
