New York 1974 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Electric Lady Studios, 52 West 8th St, New York, NY; November 1974. Very good to excellent FM broadcast.

In December 1973, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils released their self-titled debut album, which introduced the band’s unique mixture of rock, country, bluegrass and pop to the world and is still the favorite of many of the group’s fans.

By October 1974, the group’s second album, It’ll Shine When It Shine, was out. The album also contained the group’s biggest hit, Jackie Blue. According to the wikipedia, they cut their tracks in the pre-Civil War house that served as their rehearsal space, with producers Glyn Johns and David Anderle working from a mobile recording truck parked outside. The homey makesift setup yielded a loose, organic vibe that invigorated material like Steve Cash’s tongue-in-cheek swamp-rocker E.E. Lawson.

Thanks to bluesdevil for sharing the tracks at Dime. Thanks also to ozrkreb and josenoruego for the artwork.

Known Glitches, noted by bluesdevil:
Some FM signal static. Only about 5 secs or so of actual music is impacted. I used the click/pop eliminator under noise reduction in Cool Edit but it didn’t do much good as the static sounds like it was in the FM signal, so I left it alone. With the exception of these glitches, this show has very good sound.

t01: At about :06 for about a sec. During intro - no impact on music.
t09: At about 1:14 for about a sec and a half.
t12: At about 3:16 for about 3 secs. and from about 3:31 to 3:42 there a few instances, although they occur during the recording studio announcer’s speaking part and not the music.

FM broadcast
Unknown gen. cassette > CDR > EAC > Cool Edit > CD WAV > FLAC

  4. “A Dollar’s Worth of Regular”–clearly written at a time when that much gas would get you from the pump back to the street.
