Eastern Europe Tour

On June 13, the band embarked on a tour of Eastern Europe requested by Nixon's State Department. Associating with anything sponsored by the government during these years did not incur favor with their fans. Reviews of BST #3 used more ink on that tour than on the retreaded music. Turns out, the were sorta blackmailed by ole Tricky Dick (I know, you're shocked!). DCT had visa "issues" that magically diappeared after the tour. Imagine that. When they agreed to a stay at Caesar's Palace in Vegas—they were toast to hard-core fans (altho mom & dad liked the songs).
