SPIRIT
Detroit 1984 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Harpo’s, Detroit, Michigan; October 19, 1984 (this show has also been listed as March 12, 1984). Excellent FM broadcast.

Though formed in 1967, there were occasions when the group broke up, only to reform again. The wikipedia lists the group’s active years as 1967-1973; 1974-1979 and 1982-1997. Spirit had ace guitarist Randy California and a formidable drummer in Randy’s stepfather, Ed Cassidy.

In December 1982, the original Spirit line-up re-formed and recorded several songs from their first four albums (as well as a few new tracks) live on a soundstage. Though the album The Thirteenth Dream (Spirit of ‘84 in the US) was initially recorded for an audiophile label, Mercury Records re-signed the band (and gave California a solo deal) and released the album in 1984. Randy California drowned in 1997; John Locke died in 2006; and Ed Cassidy died of cancer in 2012.

Thanks to shakey for sharing the tracks at Hunger City. Contrary to what shakey noted -  “superb uncirculated FM Soundboard”, it’s possible these tracks were shared as far back as 2008 with some of the tracks having different names.

  6. Thank you Big O Amigos. Spirit has held a special place in my musical heart for decades. Randy California was a special and under-appreciated talent. Thanks again,

  9. i just finished listening to my 5 cd set of spirit with bonus tracks and i come here and heres a spirit show. what are the odds? a friend asked me to share with him the set of spirit cds so he could dl them and get into them just the other day. i found them online and sent him links for him to dl the collection. its a hell of a collection those 5 cds.
    from what i can tell the first cd from 68 has 4 bonus tracks. the 2nd one also from 68 has 5 bonus tracks. the 3rd one from 69 has 4. sardonicus from 1970 has 4. the last cd is feedback from 72 and its 35mins so i guess theres no bonus tracks on that. i have it as a single flac file.
    course i also have 2 other items - spirit of 76 which is dated 1975 with 25 tracks on it. and something called the spirit salvation 1974-5 3rd cd - studio trax (2007) 18songs (missing 7songs). thats what i have on this hard drive. thats not to mention on older drives or unreleased material. theres 35 shows from 68-95 on sugarmegs altho there is minor duplication.
    the last 2 times i saw them in ny were at the un and at the bottom line. at the latter show nearly no one showed up but randy stopped and talked to every single person who wanted to meet with him and ask for an autograph or picture. he was extremely personable and cordial that way. amazingly nice guy. the un performance was part of that hungerthon that ive talked about previously. they did 3-4 songs back in the mid 80s. probably either 85 or 86.

  13. A 5 CD set of Spirit albums with bonus tracks can be purchased for less than $20 at Amazon: http://tinyurl.com/ckmyyq5 It’s also available on eBay for a few extra bucks.

    A priceless bonus with your purchase is that darth is not included. :-)

    The albums in the set are: “Spirit”, “The Family…”, “Clear”, “12 Dreams…”, and “Feedback”. Feedback has only Ed Cassidy and John Locke from the original Spirit.

  19. Darth.. ignore them… I enjoyed reading your post… I saw Randy live once around 1979, but didn’t discover Spirit until this year, apart from “I got a line on you”. Wish I had discovered them back in the day.

  20. The original line-up recorded a special cable tv-only concert somewhere around this time. I’d love to get my hands on that.

    By Just Bill on Apr 5, 2013

  21. Yo darth I enjoy reading your comments too! I hope I get to meet as many of the rock stars as you have!

  26. just bill - heres a site u might find incredibly informative -
    http://www.sandiegoreader.com/weblogs/bands/2009/feb/27/friday-round-town-plus-weekly-hotsheet-adelitas-mr/

    scroll down to get to the spirit section which goes on for quite some time.
    as u can see.. it is mentioned how there were only a handful of shows done in 84 with the orig line up then they abandoned the tour and went their separate ways. they did only one show in 83 so that wasnt the one u are referring to. i know that there were some performances done for the usa channel like the police in 1981. well not exclusively for usa tv but ultimately shown on our usa tv station. i believe that was a show from 79 hatfield polytechnic in england. its quite possible that spirit did a similar thing with a show they happened to film. they may have sold it to a cable channel in the usa like the usa tv channel. are u with me? haha.
    i looked around a little to find out exactly which show this could have been. if its not this show on this page.. and u know it could be since it was brdcst (just like the police show was) then i dont know which show it is.
    there is an audience recorded audio show on tube btw. very nice item from the 90s. for ppl who are looking for one more item.

    someone felt it was funny to post using my name.

    By darth on Apr 6, 2013

  39. i checked that link. first of all. its in spanish. i dont speak spanish. 2nd of all.. its heavy metal. i dont have any interest in heavy metal and i dont see any reason why anyone would think i would go to that site in the first place. theres nothing there that would be of interest to me. certainly there are no spirit shows there. if there were id have linked to them directly. the link provided by whoever used my name doesnt link to anything remotely related to spirit. i already gave this page a list of a bunch of spirit shows. i havent been looking for any more after that. i havent been on this site since i posted that message.

    By darth on Apr 6, 2013

  40. someone should do us all a favour and make an intelligent comment using the name ‘darth’…

  53. i havent been to the willards wormholes site in years. i dont know what u are talking about or why u think i should have said that. if u go there and have a link to the site that leads to their collection of currently active spirit items im sure fans of the band would love to read about it. but i have nothing to do with it. no need to include my name in your posting.

    By darth on Apr 8, 2013

  59. u dont need to post messages on the site to dl from it. i have been to the site but i havent posted on it. i dont post messages on any sites other than this one. no one is deleting any of my messages anywhere. thats just ridiculous. do u idiots just say stupid things to see your type printed out on a web site with no consideration as to how preposterous the things u say are?? whats wrong with u people??
    theres free music all over the place. that doesnt mean i go there on a regular basis. i go to 100s of sites. but i havent been to that particular one in a very long time. i seem to recall going there for something that someone from this site linked me to nearly a year ago i believe. i dont recall what it was. but just because there is free music there doesnt mean i go there on a regular basis. i get over 5000 emails a week of free music that i can dl all day long without ever going to a site.

    By darth on Apr 8, 2013

  60. “do u idiots just say stupid things to see your type printed out on a web site with no consideration as to how preposterous the things u say are??”

    that seems to be your raison d’ etre, mon cher. pot, bouilloire répondre.

  61. which is it darth, you say..
    i havent been to the willards wormholes site in years..
    then you say…
    i have been to the site but i havent posted on it.
    then..

    forgive them-they know not how clueless they are

    By c.darrow'sasst. on Apr 8, 2013

  64. scope all those things i said are true. none of them contradict any other thing i said. read them carefully.
    having been to the site doesnt mean its been recently. not posting on it doesnt change anything else ive said. having not been to it in a very long time is the same as years. so again nothing wrong there. i dont know why u are looking for inconsistencies in things i have said. but again nothing there that i can see is a problem. what are u seeing that presents itself with one? i do remember going there for something not terribly long ago. so again yes.. i have been there. im not saying i havent. were u trying to make a point here?? i dont know what u mean id be great in court. if u mean that i dont lie.. well of course. if u mean that i cant be caught having contradicted myself because i didnt say one thing and then another that says the opposite.. when u were trying to catch me then what u meant to say is that if u were in court opposite me on the stand.. how poorly u would do. dont blame me for your inadequecies. youre the one who seems to have a problem here. not me.
    my question here is.. why are my postings this important to u? whats wrong with u?

    and c.darrow’sasst i tend to agree with u. i dont understand it but i agree. ty vm.

  69. @Darth - I’ll re-phrase your question on behalf of your fan club here. You asked “why are my postings this important to u? whats wrong with u?”

    It should read “Why are my postings so important to me? What’s wrong with me?”

    My own personal question is, why do you love the sound of your own voice?

    I feel so tempted to post a tape of one of my crappy old bands online in the hope that Big O somehow decides to feature it here… just to read what BS you spout off about a show you could never ever had been at. I

  70. It should read “Why are my postings so important to me? What’s wrong with me?

    question for the ages. he lies and denies and pats his own back using various aliases.

    By dropkick sarge on Apr 9, 2013

  71. i have not posted using other names. i only post using my name. u are wrong here.

    and bruce - i have seen well over 2000 shows. many many of them bands that no one ever heard of or from again. if u played nyc ny state nj or la its very possible i could have seen u. there are other places i saw local no name bands too but the odds are greater in those places. ive traveled to 34 states and 4 countries in my life. ive seen performances since 65 and up thru 96. nothing since til last year when i went to 2 other performances. a jello biafra gig with 2 other bands opening and hugh laurie (house-the tv doctor guy). i couldnt really care less about your band to tell u the truth. i dont have time for it. however u could always post a song or a gig up on youtube and offer up a link here and im sure i/we would probably click it cuz we wouldnt know any better.

    as for blind faith.. i think most of the ppl here or at least the fans of bf know about all the known gigs and outtakes rehearsals etc that exist already. thats been discussed on a previous page where blind faith or clapton was the subject at hand. perhaps u missed that one. i think theres what.. 6 shows? 2 cds worth of rehearsals. and that nice 2 cd set that came out about 11 years ago with all the extras officially. killer item. highly recommended. im pretty sure it was only a few weeks ago we were discussing this. i talked about the hyde park show being their first show and how its on dvd but not on cd.

    there are new people here everyday darth you are ASS-uming everyone has everything. It never hurts to duplicate posts like this now and then. then again you could have just ignored it but you felt some reason to diss it.

    By darth on Apr 10, 2013

  79. Darth, you know you got ‘em all on the ropes. All you have to do is post a “hello” and the hornets nest convulses like N. Korea’s dropped the bomb. Proving, they’re not here for the music. It’s all hard to ignore, I agree. But know that you’ve got more power over them than they can stand. Which is why they react like Pavlov’s puppies. They simply aren’t capable of not reacting.

  86. the point is.. everyone has a right to their opinion. soldiers do what theyre told to do. they have no choice. just like cops. theyre drones. they are following orders. they follow what theyre told to do by their superiors. thats what i said. u like to take things out of context. no i dont believe that the people u think were fighting for my freedom were doing that. i think thats an old lie. i dont believe that my freedom was ever at stake. ever!!! i think thats just a big easy to say and believe lie that ppl dont realize is being pushed on them. every country has a fighting force. yes ours is better than most but every country’s army fights for their freedom as vehemently as ours. no one is trying to take over the united states and has ever tried. it has never happened. u need to read your history a lot better if u think otherwise. hitler had no plans on coming to the usa. ever!!! u clearly do not know anything about history if u believe he did. theres no reason to rehash this repeatedly. theres no reason to attack bill either. he and i both think u are a preposterous figure. u dont have to like what i say. the biggest most important thing is tho.. u should be defending my right to say it. youre not going to turn people who feel that i have the right to say what i wish. it just isnt going to happen. these are free thinking intelligent people. this country was founded on the right to think speak and believe and worship as we see fit. why dont u understand this??? what is wrong with u?? why do u act like the people we are fighting against??? if u dont appreciate the rights we have here.. the inalienable rights that our constitution affords us..the things that our declaration of independence gives us.. then u dont belong here. u need to stop trying to persecute me.. and learn to leave others alone and allow people to have the freedoms they are allowed to have without your harassment. u do not have the right to do what u are doing and have been doing for several years now. i have told u to stop repeatedly. i have asked u many times in many ways to stop. the moderator of the site has asked u to stop. he has threatened u and others like u that if u dont stop he will shut down this area of the site. clearly u arent paying attention. why not? why ruin this for everyone? dozens of people on here have asked u to stop. whats wrong with u??? u need to stop. no one is happy about what u are doing. im not going away. ive been here for about 9 years. i do not and will not apologize for my comments. i stand by them. u may not agree with them. thats your right. u have said what u feel. i have said what i feel. move on. the subject has been dealt with. everyone knows how both of us feel. im not going to change my mind about things. just as u wont. if ppl feel one way or the other about something i said or u said or what u are doing that is their right. but most important is our right to express what we think without repercussions. u need to understand this. now stop what u are doing. the site at least this portion of it.. is about music.

  88. Great read darth=Everyone should read this

  89. darth said: “a soldier saying that he was fighting for ‘our freedom’ doesnt mean it is accurate. theyre not known for their brains. they do what they do because of their fighting skills and because they are drones.”

    then darth said: “in all likelihood.. your cousin flunked out of high school and couldnt get a job. he had no skills of any marketable value and had no means of support. no one was interested in hiring the stupid fuck and he had no real worthwhile purpose or much of a realistic set of goals on the horizon. perhaps his parents suggested that the military would make a man out of him. maybe someone suggested theyd teach him a trade and said hed have some money when he got out. or he was threatened with no other options or choices if he didnt do it. maybe he was running away from something. who knows? certainly u arent going to tell us the entire truth. and frankly i dont care. most of us dont. the point is.. your cousins a loser like his cousin (u) is.”

    It’s here, if you want to read all the comments: http://bigozine2.com/roio/?p=1263

    darth blatantly lies when he says “the moderator of the site has asked u to stop. he has threatened u and others like u that if u dont stop he will shut down this area of the site.”.

    NO ONE has ever told darth that he doesn’t have the right to say whatever he thinks. He just hates it when people disagree with him. He wants to restrict other’s right to free speech.

  90. “Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people’s idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone else says anything back, that is an outrage.”

  91. Wow. I had to slog through pages of meaningless posts to get to this point.

    Having been a Spirit fan since the 1960s, I find Big O to be one site that constantly provides new or updated music from this band that has a dedicated (but unfortunately small) following.

    Being one such follower, I’m very happy to find another batch of Spirit music to comfort my soul.

    No electrons were harmed in creating this message. Unlike most of the previous posts.

  92. Wow. I had to slog through pages of meaningless posts to get to this point

    hear that darth. he says your pointless diatribes are meaningless.
    another one of your friends perhaps ? nope..this guy`s bang on the money.

  93. how do u know hes talking about me and not u? my postings are in response to the harassment. i have nothing to respond to if u and your ilk would stop harassing me. u dont need to keep commenting on everything i post. everything u type doesnt need to be about me and my postings.

    im not trying to restrict other peoples speech. but if your constant harassment is an attempt to stop mine.. thats a problem. and constantly telling me to go away and to shut up etc.. is attempting to restrict my speech. i am posting about the music. the only other postings i am forced to make are in my own defense. read the damned pages. stop ignoring the obvious. pay better attention to what is in front of u. whats going on here isnt my doing. my id on here is not reflective of your names. that in and of itself should show u that u are the problem here. what on earth is wrong with u people??? i dont post as anyone else. i dont keep posting links to other pages on this site saying see? see? look at this and oh yeah what about this and that?
    these things are all bits and pieces of proof that its u schmucks that have the problem here. i dont know who u are trying to convince here that im at fault for anything. i have several friends that i met thru this site. i care about them very much. every so often i find that i have more than i knew about like when one or two post patting me on the back and atta-boy’ing me and if i didnt already feel i was right.. i know that i am when get those from ppl whose opinions i respect like bill and tdc and a few others who have put in the energy to make sure i knew they were watching. they know who they are. they know what it means to me.

    an old saying.. those who mind dont matter and those who matter dont mind. every time the idiots on this site come at me with more stupidity trying to tear me down i remember that saying.
    stop hiding. use your own names. dont be cowards. let me know who u are. stop using these stupid names. come out from those names and admit who u are. i dont hide.. why do u need to?

  94. Hey, if Darth didn’t say something today that we don’t agree with, let’s go back 6 months so we can rehash some old news. After all we don’t have a life and this is not a music forum.

    By Paul on Apr 12, 2013

    must be magic or something.

    By david clopperfield on Apr 12, 2013

  99. david there is no magic. if there were, darth would have been sawed in half, stuffed into a top hat that a dove flew out of, put into a box wrapped with chains that was dropped into a river, and disappeared by now.
