Texas 2018 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Arlington Music Hall, Arlington, Texas; November 9, 2018. Very good audience recording.

Thanks to Whotapes for sharing the show at Dime.

Whotapes noted:

I had always wanted to see Don McLean so was really happy when this show came up. I have a love of some of the early ’70s music as it was what I always heard when I was a kid, with American Pie always being a favorite. During Homeless Brother there was a big burst of feedback from the bass. I lowered the volume on it a little but there was not much else I could do without cutting it out totally. It was a good show and
he seemed in a good mood. Sometimes when he is telling his stories he turns away from the mic and keeps talking. So, you will have a hard time hearing some of that. [Don McLean celebrated his 77th birthday in October.]
