New Haven 1972 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Sprague Hall, Yale University, New Haven, CT; December 2, 1972 (not December 12 as originally circulated). Very good soundboard.

I think it’s been an amazing journey and its unfolded one passion at a time, and I just followed where my passion has led me and it hasn’t stirred me wrong yet, Even though I’ve had a few huge Pop hits, but basically my career can be described as a long and adventurous odyssey through various forms of American roots. I started out falling in love with Appalachian “Old Timey” music and country blues, bluegrass, jazz, and all sorts of music and, at various stages as the mood lent me, I began to explore different genres… and continuing to do that. It’s been fascinating; we have such an amazing, rich, musical heritage in this country and it’s something I never get tired of exploring. - Maria Muldaur, 2012

Here is Maria Muldaur, opening for Bonnie Raitt (perhaps explaining the bluesy feel of the show). Given that the setlist for both the Early and Late shows is identical, casual listeners and those curious might want to start with the Late Show as it includes pianist Lou Terriciano.

From folk to blues to the Grateful Dead… that’s the First Lady of American Roots Music for you.

Thanks to Stu for sharing the tracks back in 2005; and to ecocats and others who are still keeping the shows alive at Lossless Legs and Dime.

  2. Super, Big-O! Please to be the first to say thank you!

  3. OOPS. Meant “PleasED to be the first…”.

    What a great Friday for-the-weekend treat! Maria is wonderful to see live these days, a vet who clearly still loves singing for people who come to see her. “Richland Woman Blues”, a 2001 “comeback” album, is highly recommended.

    Maria should be required listening for all adolescent males. Ya wanna know about romance? What women want? Listen to Maria. God, what a BABE!

  4. Thanks! I had to download and listen immediately, she’s one of my favorite singers. Great voice, expression and energy. It’s interesting to hear this early solo recording. I’m waiting for decades for an opportunity to see her live. (Maria, please tour Central Europe!)

  5. diva.
    last time she played here she berated the soundman so much that people got up and left.

  6. Maria opened up for a show I saw in Red Bank,NJ. Some audience members shouted out Midnight At The Oasis. Maria refused to sing her greatest hit to the dismay of many in the audience (including myself). As an opening act, it is pretty much customary to do a best known song, but Maria would not be bothered. I don’t think she gained very many new fans that night.

  7. Mike & lifetime, it’s understandable your experiences would leave a bad taste, but from seeing her a couple times recently, I would like to think they are in the past. Today, I think she’s grateful that people remember “Oasis” and she pulls it out every chance.
    She also tells a story about how that song was a late session what-the-hell knockoff they did just for the hell of it, not because anybody thought it was anything worthwhile. They immediately forgot about it and next thing she knows….

  8. I saw Maria Muldaur as part of a Sunday afternoon bill at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, NJ. It was the spring or summer of 1974. Midnight at the Oasis had just been a hit but she did not include it in her set. Other acts on the bill that day included Seals and Croft, England Dan and John Ford Coley and the premiere appearance of Souther, Hillman and Furay. America was supposed to be part of the bill but I think they broke up just before the date.
