1978 saw Jimmy begin his own tour with the Coral Reefer Band, spending March and April playing along the east coast and then the mid-west. June brought California dates which included a few shows opening for Jackson Browne in San Jose and Angels Camp, CA. August brought a Florida stadium tour with the Little River Band and the Stever Miller Band along with 3 shows in Atlanta and Miami which were recorded for the live album “You Had To Be There.” Jimmy then took some much needed time off during the fall.
