Boston 1983 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Boston Common, Boston, MA; July 22, 1983. Last show of the “Get Closer” tour. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Legendary singer Linda Ronstadt, 67, told AARP ( August 23, 2013 that she “can’t sing a note” because she suffers from Parkinson’s disease. Diagnosed eight months ago, Ronstadt began to show symptoms as long as eight years ago.

Thanks to the original taper; and to Steve Hopkins (shopkin527) for transferring, encoding and sharing the tracks at Dime.

Steve noted: “Another dusty ol’ reel off the shelf… this may be new to circulation.”

  2. Bandit And A Heart Breaker is actually the Judee Sill song Jesus was a Cross Maker. Original lyric is He’s a Bandit And A Heart Breaker, But Jesus was a Cross Maker. Warren Zevon does a good version on his Mutineer album.

  3. Big-O, a request: love to hear some good quality Maria Muldaur, both contemporary and vintage (meaning mid-70s).

  4. Boston PD got every face at Boston concerts for facial recognition software test without notice and lied about it. Just thought you’d like to know…
