that audiences here are more receptive to originals, it doesn't hurt to
have good originals performed in an effective manner.<

In the early days before I had any recordings out it was much harder to
play original material.  I found as the crowd had something to take home
with them(tapes, then LP's, then CD's) and get aquainted with the songs
they started to request them.  Then after I started getting airplay it
accelerated.  I remember the first time I performed in a strange city
and people in the front row were singing all the words.  That's the
magic of airplay.
