Los Angeles 1975 (?) [A Flying M Production, 1CD]

KMET John Mayall Hour Live from the Record Plant, Los Angeles, CA. Broadcast February 1975. Very good FM.

Any updates on vocalist Dee McKinney (McMann) would be appreciated.

Thanks to Flying M for sharing this show at The Traders’ Den.

Flying M’s notes:

Live in a studio with a small audience. Not sure if this was “as it happened” or a re-broadcast. The box is marked February 1975 and that’s the date used here. Tax Man Blues (tape flip during intro-spliced at “Otherwise You Go Crazy). The Dokorder was not the best reel to reel but it did have bi-directional recording. Tape flips were very quick and since the tape was not removed there is just a second or so missing. Commercials were removed. In a few places the stereo separation is exaggerated (by the DJ?)

  3. i found very little on dee mckinney. she apparently was discovered by mayall in memphis TN. the only photo i found was on the cover of mayall’s album ‘new year, new band, new company’. she had a band after mayall which john ‘drumbo’ french turned down just before the ’shiny beast bat chain puller’ sessions.,+singer&source=bl&ots=4C7RLiCDDc&sig=erfbLczEcO-mBMVpxJCtp3vu3TE&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CDsQ6AEwB2oVChMI0oWI2JPnxgIVhageCh2M7QpP#v=onepage&q=Dee%20McKinney%2C%20singer&f=false
