Banksville, NY 1988 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Krypton, Banksville, NY; May 29, 1988. Fairly to very good soundboard.

Thanks to davmar77 for sharing the show at Dime.

davmar77 noted:

I had the pleasure of being on the guest list and plugging into the soundboard for this with personal permission from Mick Taylor. Recorded at Krypton in Banksville, NY on May 29, 1988. This club is always noted to have been in Armonk, NY. It wasn’t. As the originator, I can assure you all of the correct location.

  3. Sounds great! I love his first solo album. Impressive lineup with Pretty Purdie and Shayne Fontayne along with his longtime sidkick (and former Jeff Beck keyboardist) Max Middleton.

  4. when jack bruce played the bottom line around that time he did 2 sets.. and one had mick joining him for the encores and the other had clapton joining him. both sets were incredible.
    when mick played the lonestar cafe up on 13th st. keith richards joined him for the encores. killer set too. i had gotten those sbd tapes direct from the soundman but theyre long gone now of course.

  8. Thanks Big O! I worked for Mick in 1985/6, and I’m almost positive I went to this show to see him and hang out. Details are sketchy though. LOL

  10. Thanks BigO. I saw this band in Norway around this time, and Taylor`s guitar sound was magic! The concert was fantastic. Had a long chat with Shane Fontayne(now plays with CSN)who is a really great musician. A bit shocked to see Bernard Purdie as the drummer, can`t remember him, but I believe I did not know who he was back in the day :) This band must have been Mick`s greatest ever. Saw Mick again around 2002, big disappointment

  11. Thanks for this show! In his younger years (1967-1974) Mick was a brilliant guitar player. Later – in the nineties – he was just a shadow of his former self. I saw some of his shows and what he played was uninventive and boring. No power, no songs, no creativity, no strong personality, no positive vibrations. But a huge beer belly. This made me very sad. Maybe he was no more than another excellent sidekick for stronger creativ forces like Jagger-Richards or Carla Olsson.
