Lincoln 1974 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Pershing Auditorium, Lincoln, Nebraska; November 27, 1974. Fairly to very good audience recording.

At the time of this show, America were promoting their fourth studio album, Holiday, which was released in June 1974. The album was produced by George Martin.

Thanks to the taper; Craig M; and to theklopeks for sharing the show at Dime.

theklopeks noted:

Another fine recording, this time from America. So far from what I’ve heard, this taper knew what he was doing. A great show from an underated band, the so called “Eagles lite”. Only some small quibbles like the cut from a tape flip and some weird guitar sound in Only In Your Heart. It actually sounds like the guitar is played backwards. Hendrix was a pro in acheiving this sound. Whether it’s intentional for this tune I’ll leave it to you. Hopefully this isn’t the end from this source as he definitely has the chops. Enjoy the show.

  4. Hi, easy. For this show David Dickey was on bass and Harry Stinson was playing drums. The song “Everyone I Meet Is California” was first released as a B-side to “Horse With No Name” (although I know the LP Homecoming has your reference).
