New York 1974 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Carnegie Hall, New York City, NY; May 26-27, 1974. Very good KBFH pre-FM.

Thanks to nowbodhis-blissness for sharing this show on the net.

This sparkly performance… came from the halcyon days of FM radio in the 1970s. It is a pre-broadcast capture - direct from the King Biscuit Flower Hour reels. First broadcast on June 30, 1974.

  4. It wasn’t enough to keep us together though . All the dope he did broke us up .

  5. A real treat . Great sound . A time when radio and other outlets actually promoted talented artists , unlike today .

  6. Love James Taylor’s voice here . In his prime . Carly joining him onstage for Mocking Bird is great , big hit at the time . King Bisquit, Kirshner , Midnight Special etc . Great time to be a music fan. Today is mostly garbage .

  7. Hey U L E, rumour has it your a fat 600lbs shut-in loser living in your parents basement living off food stamps. How pathetic, you spend your days dreaming and typing about penises yet NEVER get to see a real one in person…..it’s probably the rancid body odor you have or the swarm of flies around your crotch!

  8. I don’t get into all the queer talk here.This queer is either usin my name or spells his the same .By the way Not classic rock but James is great at what he does

  13. I always see the same sentence in every show post. What waste of the copy and paste function.

  14. I P adresses can be changed . If people don’t like trolls ‘ change the format by having a moderator or shut the hell up . People are free to act like idiots if they choose . This isn’t serious . What happened in Florida yesterday ( shooting ) as well as what’s going on in the world in general. That’s serious.

  17. Loved this set of shows around NYC and the east coast. Nice to see a repost with superior sound. Also love that the Antichrist stops by this site. Perhaps one of the many Humperdoo clones will check in at some point, or Jesse Custer himself.
