FLEETWOOD MAC
The Bronx 1972 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Gaelic Park, The Bronx, New York, NY; August 31, 1972. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Thanks to the original taper; and to hanwaker for sharing the show at Dime.

Notes:

- Very fine, upgraded & remastered stereo AUD w/some echo issues in R channel.
- Warts: dullspots, dropouts & claps repaired/reduced but surely missed a few. Wind picks up at times&channels fluctuated in volume but mostly fixed. R channel has some echo the mike is catching bouncing off the back wall in venue. Some cuts between songs (not all elegant).
- Date: Show originally scheduled for 1972-08-30 but was delayed a day & happened 1972-08-31
- Concert was Deep Purple supported by Fleetwood Mac, Silverhead, Elf with Ronnie James Dio.
- Probably Fleetwood Mac played 1st. Christine says, “There are a lot of bands coming on later”.

DimeTravel 428: Many thanks to the original taper, & to The Florida Kid for the M1 reel transfer. Hats off to Dimer gv0000 for research & date correction. Thanks to hendrixfan1995 for his attempts to remove some of the echo (tho’ sadly to no avail). Thanks to a fellow Dimer for the uploadin’. Corrections welcome: There’s are many damn good reasons glasnostrd19 & I, along with many of you, have been carrying the torch for this Welch-era Mac for decades, a Mac line-up which has been abysmally ignored in the reissue & vault regurgitation department. If you can get used to the echo, this show is a stunner - a much better copy of the source tape than the old one, with a ton of work done to it - & the EQ version is a delight. Another show where FM sounds like the Dead in a few places, such as parts of the “Black Magic Woman” jam. I CD-R’d this one, which I almost never do anymore, and have been enjoying repeated plays in the car. It’s excellent. Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yrs truly, Knees

  2. Thanks for posting this Big O. I agree, this period of Mac is too frequently overlooked, and Danny was a fine songwriter and excellent guitarist. The distinction between the Green Fleetwood Mac and the Buckingham Nicks one is pronounced, but there is a definite transition period and this show demonstrates that nicely.

  5. I played in New Orleans with Led Zeppelin
    Finally, I get to play the Municipal Auditorium in New Orleans — a musical destination that I had craved for many a year. With homegrown talent and the likes of Clarence Frogman Henry, Dave Bartholomew, Fats Domino, Frankie Ford, Dr John, Professor Longhair, The Mardis Gras Indians, The Metres, The Neville Brothers, Hughey ‘Piano’ Smith and the magnificent blind blues minstrel Snooks Eaglin - the list is endless of the talent that was born and raised in this magickal area. Frankie Ford was still appearing at his bar in Bourbon Street at the time that we played there.

    Bourbon Street pulsated with energy and indigenous music. I had the appetite for all of it!

  6. BBC 4 showed the 2009 tribute to Peter Green: Man of the World last night here and it is heart wrenching to see him still suffering then from the effects of his mental ill health. Here the brave attempts to soldier on without him or David Berg aficionado Jeremy Spencer who whilst accused of incest and peadophilia makes a bland and disingenuous appearance here. personally I would have left him out! Peter merely another ‘acid casualty’ from multiple LSD doses of 1,000 microgram California ‘Sunshine’ and the resulting disaster that the authorities and medical services had no idea then how to help or treat other than use ECT on the poor sod! Shattering and sad. Rest in Peace now Peter. Aaah what might have been. Here before they succumbed to American influenced indulgence and superstardom! If ever a band were hexed . . . . . . ?

  7. David , derrick, black apes with white mudshark hoes is bad enough, but have you noticed how ugly and weird looking many modern black apes look . Eyes set far apart , larger nostrils even than usual and other facial deformities. It’s almost like a black version of the movie deliverance. They already spread their seeds to many baby mama’s these days . It sure looks like they spread some to their relatives too . A lot of incest among modern black apes .

    By HHH on Aug 29, 2020

  8. That black ape Jacob Blake is suspected of molesting a minor . Big surprise, Floyd , Brooks , and now Blake , all peas in a pod , all black ape thugs . Yet the police are the villains

    By HHH on Aug 29, 2020

  9. All sports are now going to include protests , kneeling for the anthem and in your face . I hope all Caucasian fans boycott sports .

    By HHH on Aug 29, 2020

  10. Big O, when are you going to rid this site of these assholes?

    By george on Aug 29, 2020

  11. HHH Derrick did you see the guy that played Jackie Robinson and James Brown and The Black Panther died. Fuckin only 44 years old. What you think of the Jimmy Page recording. He blew that band away. The whole band sucked but bein such a Page fan, I thought he was great playin lotta songs I never heard him play

    By David Duke on Aug 29, 2020

  12. Im done HHH. Even sports talk radio is all about BLM and politics. Its all for shit now. Hipsters and millenials protesting check this video out of BLM forcing people dining outside to make a fist. REminded me of the hitler youth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSnTTND0UcM

    By David Duke on Aug 29, 2020

    By Derrick on Aug 29, 2020

    By Derrick on Aug 29, 2020

  19. Shaved nutsacks are better.

    By Derrick on Aug 29, 2020

  20. Jimmy Page I wanna suck your flesh stratocaster.

    By Derrick on Aug 29, 2020

  21. John Paul Jones’ johnson too.

    By Derrick on Aug 29, 2020

  22. Robert Plant shit on my feet once.

    By HHH on Aug 29, 2020

  23. I put his turd in my shorts and walked around with it for two straight days!!

    By HHH on Aug 29, 2020

  24. David , derrick, you’re absolutely right , all the sports talk shows , Cowherd , Skip Bayless , Shannon Sharpe , Steven A Smith , Max Kellerman, Mike Jew Greenberg and more . All they talk about are the cop shootings and protests .

    By HHH on Aug 29, 2020

  25. Also Jalen Rose

    By HHH on Aug 29, 2020

  26. Jalen Rose is married to Molly Querm . It’s hard to figure out if she’s white or a half and half . I was shocked to see that David Jacoby had a black ape wife and mongrel kids

    By HHH on Aug 29, 2020

  27. Did you see Kenny Smith walk off nba set TnT?

    By HHH on Aug 29, 2020

  28. Hhh is right , lots of these niggers I see on the street look inbred . Fathers fucking daughters , mothers with sons , brothers with sisters . It would not surprise me if that shit goes on .

    By Nelson on Aug 29, 2020

  29. Nigger families have been declining since the 1970’s

    By Nelson on Aug 29, 2020

  30. Nelson , David , Derrick, have you ever noticed how many black ape females today have different last names than their kids . Many different kids by different baby daddy’s . Like Nelson said no family values anymore. Most black ape kids don’t have a father in the home and most don’t even know who the father is .

    By Nelson on Aug 29, 2020

  31. your mama is sucking on the flesh stratocaster. she thinks its a dildo

    By David Duke on Aug 29, 2020

  32. hhh/nelson derrick check out the videos on you tube and watch these blm hipsters and millenials harrasing people dining outside

    By David Duke on Aug 29, 2020

  33. these idiots dont have a fuckin clue as to what they are doing. everything is upside down. black is right and white is wrong.these idiots actually think they are doing blacky a favor. blacky is laughing. bring back jim crow and sun down towns

    By David Duke on Aug 29, 2020

  34. for all the assholes that didnt have the decency to appreciate listening to a special recording fuck yu and your inbred momma. sure my friends appreciated it. sundown towns are for places that whitey must leave before sundown. hope mark billy swappers and the other cum lickers get stuck in a sundown town where the town is black and whitey must leave by sundown. if not i hope the niggers chain u to the back of a truck and drag your asses until only a torso is left

    By David Duke on Aug 29, 2020

  35. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ij_pUtJJrw

    By Ringo on Aug 30, 2020

  48. Jamale Hill is always being interviewed on CNN these days . What is so important about her opinions? She’s a radical female black ape . An Angela Davis wannabe.

    By HHH on Aug 30, 2020

  49. HHH,Jemele Hill is a fucking nigger lesbian cunt. Shes a black agitator like all oft them

    By David Duke on Aug 30, 2020

  50. To the the wannabe DD you shouldnt be talking about your mother fucking barnyard animals. HHH/ Derrick this site is infested with jew scum filth that fuck their own mothers and their own pets.

    By David Duke on Aug 30, 2020

  51. would love to see these animals step on a landmine and blow their sorry asses up. Ringo suck my rod good. You must be Billy Mark Harmon or some other pathetic cretin that crawled under a rock. Maybe Satan will drag you to hell

  59. I haven’t licked a black stud’s ass in over 24 hours and I’m jonsin’.

    By David Duke on Sep 1, 2020

  60. Wouldn’t it be interesting if Daisy Duke’s diatribe against name stealers was actually written by one of the name stealers?

    You can’t take anything in these forums seriously, except for some of the music comments. There’s nothing worth getting upset over, although I do find it amusing sometimes to irritate the racists with a well-timed and well-written dig. Then, I sit back and watch them drag out the same tired racist slurs and other lame retorts. They have nothing creative, nothing original to say, and I look forward to their childish retorts to this post.

  61. We have no humor and we don’t have smarts. Repetition is our finest weapon.

    By David Duke on Sep 2, 2020

  62. We know its you Mark . Its not like its not obvious . Your startin to piss us off

    By Derrick on Sep 2, 2020

  63. Some people in here have bought the recent Fleetwood Mac Box-Set issued on Reprise Records? Oh well, I did and what a delight it is!!!!!!!!!

    By serge zéni on Oct 7, 2020

  64. What has changed suddenly, almost everybody wants to know………?
    Just a conversation with a little man, one day, some weeks ago, and this guy confessed to Danny that he was, truly, a black cat.
