San Francisco [no label, 1CD]

Hall & Oates - live at the Stanley Theater, Pittsburgh, PA; date unknown. Devo - live at the Warfield Theatre, San Francisco; date unknown. Very good radio broadcast.

From the “King Biscuit Flower Hour” which I recorded from the radio in the late 1970s or early 1980s. You get five songs by each artist. - Philip Cohen

The Bird And The Bee might have built up a cult following with their take on dream pop on their self-titled album in 2007 but they were stepping onto hallowed ground when they released earlier this year Interpreting The Masters Volume 1: A Tribute To Daryl Hall And John Oates. While their hearts might be in the right place, The Bird And The Bee were too reverential and the listener is prompted to go back to the “masters”. Because when it comes to blue-eyed soul, the Hall & Oates combination can easily deliver that knock-out punch.

Readers are welcomed to provide concert details, if possible.

In the meantime, thanks to Phil for sharing the tracks.

Note: A longtime music fan, Philip Cohen was a contributor to the now-defunct ICE Magazine and compiled the boxsets for The Yardbirds, The Small Faces, Humble Pie and Nice.

  3. hey bigo, i don’t know about hall and oats. i wasn’t big on private eyes growing up. however, devo i’ll get. i guess, i could just call it live for album title.

  4. I may be speaking out of turn…but the King Biscuit catalog has actually been licensed to that Wolfgang’s Vault website…that’s not the same thing as being available on a legit cd/vinyl…or is it?

    Just sayin’.

  5. Thanks Phil! Keep ‘em coming! <> LOL, I actually saw Jimmy Buffett open for Led Zeppelin in the 1970’s…

  6. At the beginning of cut 4 they mention that they’re at the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh, if that helps with the venue info.

    Thanks for yet another excellent offering!

  7. …and cut 7 specifies Devo was recorded at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco. H&O was at the Stanley.

    Yeah, I should have listened to the whole thing before replying in the first place. :)

  8. Wow, what a double-bill! Blue-eyed Soul and Edgy New Wave Pop. An inspired collection! Thank you Big O! This was fun.

  9. To Scott and linuus41, thanks for your comments. As far as we understand, Wolfgang’s Vault does not have access to all the King Biscuit shows; and these do not appear to be available there.

  10. hey bigo, it’s possible 8.16.80 is the date. all these songs are on the setlist. look here.

    By Ed Saad on Nov 3, 2010

  11. 8.16.80 on devo i mean. thanks.

    By Ed Saad on Nov 3, 2010

  12. hey bigo, on devo, the song before whip it is freedom of choice theme song and the song after gut feeling is slap your mammy. i will put that on mine, and, if people are as nit picky as i am, they can too. i will keep the same date of 8.16.80 cause i think that is correct.

  13. RE: The DEVO show
    This show brings back some memories
    But if I remember correctly this is not the original broadcast of this show
    I am going to have to dig through some very old cassettes but I seem to recall when it was first broadcast on KB it was a complete concert.
    Or perhaps it was a different concert at the Waldorf???
    Anyone else remember?
    Thanx BigO

  14. Does anybody know if the mind bending version of Hey Hey My My from the 1982 Neil Young film Human Highway has ever surfaced anywhere?

    Here’s a quote from IMDB:
    Contains the only recorded collaboration between Neil Young and Devo, as they perform “Hey Hey My My (Out The Blue Into The Black)”. The song is sung by Mark Mothersbaugh as his “Booji Boy” character,and changes a few lyrics in typical Devo fashion. (i.e. “Johhny Rotten” becomes “Johnny Spud”).

    I know The Worried Man song showed up on a Devo compilation but to hear Hey Hey My My I have to sit in front of the TV and play my VHS tape.

    I’m hoping BigO or someone in the audience can find and post this track. It’s one of a kind.

  15. Thanks for the Devo. Whip It and Girl u Want

  16. Track down Daryl Hall’s “Sacred Songs” from 1977…. Hall and Fripp.

    By Danny on Nov 5, 2010

  17. the hall & oates segment is from new years eve 78. the devo y’all already know is from aug 16th 80. both were longer full length kbfh shows on their own which were later combined to form a shorter best of in 82 i believe. it may have been 83. when wolfgangs vault has them they are not considered official releases no. however there is an official release of a 6 track ep of the devo set. very limited edition. i have it. but ill still dl this one.. hehe. thank u bigO. love u long time.

    By darth on Nov 5, 2010

  18. oh and danny.. if u like hall with fripp.. they are together on fripps exposure album. i seem to remember two songs hall is on but it may only be one. easy enough to check out i spoze. type in robert fripp first listing on top that shows up. thats the one.

    By darth on Nov 5, 2010

  19. Darth — I don’t know about the H&O being from 1978 — two of those songs are from their 1980 album Voices. I had the feeling it was from 1980 or ‘81 maybe.

    By linuus41 on Nov 6, 2010

  20. they did the songs before they released the album. they did do another show at the stanley theatre in pittsburgh in 80.. on aug 20th. it too was brdcst by kbfh i think. i am unable to look at the set list or my tapes of those recordings. i taped every single kbfh from bruce and mclaughlin in 73 til nov 95 whatever that one was. cant have it all memorized altho i did pretty damned good when i was actually handling my tapes and working with them on a daily basis. i dont do that anymore. long story. havent seen / touched my tapes since july 02. never will again. sniff.
    anyway… ok so lets go with the 80 date if u are sure about the set list. i didnt check the songs against what albums they had at the time. i know they did 2-3 kbfh’s but hadnt considered that this one would be the latter of the 2. btw–this also existed in 46min form as well and a later brdcst actually omitted two songs and included two new songs which if u were editing and trying to own everything u could would add up to 55mins. then later on there showed up a full sbd of the show in collectors circles. thank u for helping me to correct this info.

  21. Great to see some Hall & Oates here. How about more rare shows and outtakes from them?
