Sausalito 1974 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Record Plant, Sausalito, CA; July 23, 1974 (also listed as July 7). Very good KSAN FM.

According to Wolfgangs Vault:

Ry Cooder was promoting his third solo album, Paradise & Lunch, which most critics still regard as his best LP to date. Personable, humorous, and unquestionably talented, this intimate performance by Cooder is a long lost gem in his long and well-celebrated career. He performs a wide spectrum of material that includes covers and originals from his then-current and previous Warner Brother’s albums.

Whether it’s a Depression-era styled blues classic, such as “Police Dog Blues,” or Little Miton’s “If The Walls Could Talk,” Cooder is a master at the craft of blending smooth vocals and tasteful guitar licks around a compelling storyline song. If you don’t love the characters he sings about, you are bound to love his true musicianship, which has graced hundreds of recordings by the likes of James Taylor and The Rolling Stones.
