LITTLE FEAT
Aurora Backseat 1973 [TAKRL, 1CD]

Live at the Civic Auditorium, Santa Monica, CA; March 20, 1973. Very good FM broadcast (vinyl rip).

Here is another version of a popular Little Feat show - this one is uploaded by bluebomber.

Thanks to bluebomber for sharing the show at Dime.

Notes:

The bootleg known as “Aurora Backseat” is from this show. Also known as “No Head No Backstage Pass”. This album is of crucial interest to any Feat Heads. This is one of the only known recordings of Eldorado Slim. A cookin’ instrumental that never quite made it on to any official release. Great story from Lowell at the front end and another just before Apolitical Blues. The man was a wag.

My copy had a lot of annoying digi pops and some crackles and clicks/rumble that come from a vinyl record. This is a pretty good soundboard recording with a rare Eldorado Slim played. Thnx to Goldwate for this seed.

Lineage:
TLH > Audition3/iZotope > TLH > Flac6
- gain increased as it was low
- pops & clicks reduced from vinyl
- digi pops reduced as well
- reduced low frequency rumble
- patched flat/dead spots
