Lenny Kaye’s 67th Birthday [no label, 2CD]

Live at The Space In Westbury, Long Island, NY; December 27, 2013. Very good to excellent audience recording.

It’s hard to think of the year-end without a Patti Smith gig - she’s performing at the Webster Hall in New York on December 29 and 30 - and she’s even added this December 27 gig to the list. On the one hand a celebration of Lenny Kaye’s 67th birthday, on the other, a tribute to Lou Reed (Perfect Day). It’s also an early birthday show for Patti (December 30).

Happy Birthday Patti.

Thanks to petercul who recorded the show and shared it at Dime.

This is a very good show that’s marred in parts by a nearby fan’s laughter and howling.

petercul added: “This set was recorded full econo-mode, straight to my Edirol R-09’s built-in mics. Then copied from SD card to my Mac and cut into tracks and exported to FLAC with Amadeus Pro. Fingerprints created with xACT; Torrent file and upload facilitated with Transmit.”

  4. This one is decent sounding, but plays a little too quiet for my tastes. Nevertheless, thanks for the post and keep the Patti shows coming.
