with Don Cherry
New York 1979 [no label, 2CD]

Live at The Bottom Line, New York, NY; June 6, 1979. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Thanks to groovechild for sharing the show at Dime.

groovechild noted:

I’m fairly certain that the copies of this circulating all derive from a CD-R transfer that I made circa 2003. I traded both this show and the previous night widely that year after getting them from a long-time collector. For the new transfer, I corrected the phasing present on my tape. I applied very light EQ to brighten the sound a little, and I raised the levels to balance the channels. There were a few speed issues with the tape as well, and I corrected those as well as I could. Chuck Hammer informed me recently that Lou played two shows each day of this run. It is uncertain if this is the early or late show. No other recording from this night has surfaced, nor are there shows from this run in Lou’s archive.

January 20, 2020: Chuck Hammer, who played in Lou’s band during this time, told me tonight that he thinks this was the early show. He didn’t think they played “Street Hassle” as an encore at the late shows.

  3. Rumor has it Don had a Big Un too.

    By U L E on Feb 6, 2020

  4. Two Big Uns on stage that night .

    By U L E on Feb 6, 2020

  5. I always liked Lou fuckin Reed , solo and with the velvet underground. It was definitely a fuckin shock when Anti informed me that just like Bob Dylan he was another motherfuckin Jew bastard.

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  6. Think Anti said his real name was robowitz or some bullshit name like that

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  7. Hey Anti , you still with us pal ? Ain’t heard from you in awhile . Been on a a Sabbath kick lately

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  8. Dont leave us man . Most of the folks here is coon and Jew bastard lovers like that Dic sucker Mark

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  9. Fuck man , my day just got worse . Just found out that Kirk Douglas died today . Used to watch all his movies growin up . Spartacus, Ace in the hole , Seven days in May , The war wagon and all them other movies with John Wayne .Gunfight at the ok corrall with Burt Lancaster .God I’m depressed

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  10. My favorite Kirk Douglas movie was also Kirks favorite.Lonely are the Brave , . He plays a modern cowboy who can’t accept the modern world , he goes on the run from the law through mountains with just his horse and a rifle . They use helicopters and all kinds of shit and he beats em all . He makes it all the way to the other side of the mountain when during a rainstorm a big 18 wheeler truck hits him and his horse . He’s lying on the side of the road when the cops had to shoot the horse . The look on his face will break your fuckin heart

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  11. The cop who had chased him through the mountains looks at him lying on the ground and is asked if he knows him. Out of respect for the old cowboy the cop say he don’t know who he is even though he does . . Cried as a kid after that movie, Animals dying on screen was sad .. Same when I saw old yeller

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  12. Walter Matthau played the cop , George Kennedy played the deputy and Carroll O’Conner played the truck driver who hits Kirk and his house. O’Connor would later go on to play the best motherfuckin character in tv history. Archie Bunker . All in the family

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  13. HA! HA! HA! You guys are all fags.

    By Cracky on Feb 6, 2020

  14. Think the horse in that movie was a Palomino. Kirk called him Whiskey. He loved that fuckin horse . God , the look on Kirks face Lyin on the ground when he hears that shot . That’s what I remember most bout that movie. I was a little kid back then . They used to play the movie a lot on tv in the 60s

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  15. Derrick ‘ you’re right . They don’t make them like Kirk Douglas anymore. My favorite was Spartacus. Also saw Lonely are the brave . Great film . Think Gena Rowland’s was also in it .

    By Nelson on Feb 6, 2020

  16. Derrick

    Kirk Douglas was an ethnic Jew. Don’t
    know if he practiced though.

    By John on Feb 6, 2020

  17. You’re a lying piece of shit . No way Kirk Douglas was a Jew bastard. Neither was John Wayne.The Duke .

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  18. Issur Danielovitch AKA Kirk Douglas. Derrick my friend it is true . Kirk was a Jew I’m saddened to have to break the news . He was a practicing Hebrew as well which makes it even sadder . I liked his movies too .

    By HHH on Feb 6, 2020

  19. He did not look Hebrew . No large nose ‘ ears or accent. Maybe he was adopted. Let’s hang onto that hope .

    By HHH on Feb 6, 2020

  20. Ooops posted in the wrong place . . . or right place who knows . . . . Kirk Douglas much missed. I enjoyed his ‘Lust For Life’ too made me re-think Van Gogh and thus a lifelong passion for the artist

    Son of poor Jewish immigrants from Russia (Bryna Sanglel and Herschel Danielovitch) his father was a rag n bone man in Amsterdam, New York where ‘Kirk’ was born Issur Danielovitch and Yiddish was the first language spoken in the family home. Jewish as they come and proud of it, he shortened his name to Izzy Demsky, which I quite like, but later was persuaded to adopt the name Kirk Douglas. You know even back then anti-semitism was a vile malignant force for evil.
    A good man I think. A true legend! Lost one of the last great movie stars

    By swappers on Feb 6, 2020

  21. I is crushed . Same as with Bob Dylan , like hhh said maybe he was adopted. He didn’t look like a Jew bastard. No big nose

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  22. Derrick you stupid flaming fucking bigoted ass hole. Yes Kirk Douglas is/was Jewish.

    If you like his movies, that can’t just be enough? Who cares how he prays.
    If you like Dylan’s music, you can’t just leave it at that? Why does his religion even matter.

    Go crawl back under the rock you came from, go crawl back into your mommy’s arms. You obviously need protecting from the big scary different world.

    But most importantly- JUST GO AWAY!!!!!

    By just wow on Feb 6, 2020

  23. Maybe he was adopted. Jews have that look . Mel Brooks for example. Huge nose . You can tell he’s a fuckin Jew bastard

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  24. I still like his movies. Just disappointed that’s all . Guess everybody is a Jew bastard these days or a hi yeller

    By Derrick on Feb 6, 2020

  25. Sorry folks, I just like the music. “Heroin,” will be a good Saturday night sound in Thompson. Be well Big O Amigos.

    By James Smith on Feb 6, 2020

  26. Moronic Haters know This: Your parts are equal to the sum of Your wHole…

    By harmon on Feb 7, 2020

  27. I think there is more than 1 Derrick posting here. How can the same sad sack keep coming back and posting a sentence or two. Then go away and then come back and add some more.
    Just sayin’

  28. ADHD . . . . . . .

    By swappers on Feb 7, 2020

  29. Speaking of Hebrews . That wonderful human being Bernie Madoff is asking to get out of the big house citing illness . Many lives ruined because of that vermin Hebrew .

    By HHH on Feb 7, 2020

  30. Harvey Weinstein is on trial for rape . Jeff Epstein killed in jail two more Hebrew filth .

    By HHH on Feb 7, 2020

  31. Yes, there are evil jews. But there’s also evil everyone else.
    Think (not that u can) about it.
    Jews make up 0.2% of the worlds population.
    As a result there are way more non-jewish ponzi schemers and pedophiles than jewish ones.
    Give it rest HHH/D’ick/Anti!
    PLEASE JUST GO AWAY and leave us to enjoy the music.

    By just wow on Feb 7, 2020

  32. It’s genetic with Jews

    By HHH on Feb 7, 2020

  33. Most are rapists and child molesters.

    By HHH on Feb 7, 2020

  34. Jews are also dishonest and corrupt like Madoff.

    By HHH on Feb 7, 2020

  35. The black apes are genetically predisposed to violence, especially against women and kids . That’s bad even if most of th women they beat the crap out of are white mudshark sluts .

    By HHH on Feb 7, 2020

  36. It must be true about that large penis theory. Why else would a white woman allow herself to be beaten black and blue .

    By HHH on Feb 7, 2020

  37. It is true , Black men are humongous.

    By Rhonda on Feb 7, 2020

  38. Although I’ve never been beaten up.

    By Rhonda on Feb 7, 2020

  39. All the straight up dumb shits commenting on here are uninteresting. AND UNINTERESTING PEOPLE SHOULD BE PUSHED INTO TRAFFIC.

    Ha Ha…non plussed by you dumb dumbs, watching Big O Theory and whatnot

    By regular stair on Feb 7, 2020

  40. Rhonda’s right . Black guys are a lot bigger that white dudes . They know how to use it too.

    By Anne on Feb 7, 2020

  41. Motherfuckin sluts . No fuckin shame

    By Derrick on Feb 7, 2020

  42. The men In the white sheets would have taken care of your whore asses back In The day
