Shot In The Dark: Playing With Lightning

Our bubbling under song for this Saturday comes from 1981. “Playing with Lightning” was the only single release from Shot in the Dark’s only album. Shot in the Dark was Al Stewart’s back-up band in the late 70s and 80s. The song only peaked at #71.


We played this song at WCIR in a nighttime rotation – and I loved it. Brian Savage’s flute reminded me of Tim Weisberg’s playing. The ending with the delay on the guitar is also awesome.

The band consisted of Peter White; Brian Savage; Robin Lamble (the brother of Fairport Convention’s late drummer Martin Lamble); Krysia Kristianne (who was known as Krysia Kocjan in the Natural Acoustic Band that we will feature on Monday); and Adam Yurman.
