Austin 1979 [A Professor Goody Presentation, 1CD]

Live at Armadillo World Headquarters, Austin, TX; March 22, 1979. Very good FM broadcast.

This is a show that’s new to circulation… nothing like a spot of jingle-jangle to start the day.

Thanks to Goody for sharing the show at Dime.

Goody noted:

It’s got a couple anomalies I’ve noted in the text. They won’t get in the way… One (of the anomalies) doesn’t alter any music, and may even put a smile on your faces!

Thanks as always to TomP for his great help in prescribing the offset necessary to adjust the phase of this recording, making it sound a whole lot better!

  2. I love all the Byrd alumni combinations that I’ve collected through BigO. Coming up to the 5 year anniversary of the passing of my sweet wife, Bye Bye Baby fits in my sad mood, as I ponder the possibility of being with her soon. The day after I turn 60 next month, will come the scans to see what has appeared in my neck after my three surgeries and 4 weeks of radiation. Thanks for the new release!

  3. track #9 reminds me when I was mixing a U2 cassette tape. I had just recorded a track from a 4 song U2 brit ep with the small center hole and 33 1/3 speed. I reset my Garrard turntable to take the 45 single with the yellow spindle to fill up the big hole, but forgot to reset the speed. I’m about to set down to hear the live track. Bono rather slowly and low-voiced “g-e-t on y-o-u-r
    f-e-e-t! g-e-t on y-o-u-r f-e-e-t! w-e’-r-e
    g-o-i-n-g h-o-m-e n-o-w! The Edge is doing an underlay of simple ding-ding-ding beats and I switched speeds perfectly (after rushing back in a panic to just hit the switch willy-nilly) so the Edge is hitting the fast normal beats just before Bono starts singing. It was a fun start to the song and I kept it til the tape broke.

  8. Had to go find that song, ScarRad - seems it’s “I Will Follow,” from the Paradise Theater in Boston, 1981. I’ve been there, and I can’t imagine all that energy in such a small club.

    Also, I had a similar experience when driving three hours one night, listening to U2 on a Walkman. The batteries slowly gave out, till Bono sounded like Leonard Cohen, and it made each song sound so unique, like a special version only I ever heard.

    All the best to you.

  9. Thanks Steve MC. Had the opposite happen once. 40 years ago, my late wife and I sang in our Church adult choir a musical version of Oklahoma. Our friend recorded the one hour show for us on cassette and gave us the tape to take home. We played it that night, and the first half was fine. The second half was okay until we noticed that the applause between songs got tinny-sounding. Then the songs got faster and faster, with very quick applause between them, and the volume was dropping. His batteries died towards the end. It was one way of getting an hour of music on 45 minutes of tape, but I wouldn’t recommend it. No way to fix that tape.

  11. Hey ScarRad, chin up brother! I’m 3 years clear of chemo for leukemia. BigO lets me remember the past while looking to the future.
