 rowan sbd betty davmar77, there's a bit of a back story on this. if you are a new riders fan, you are probably familiar with the 1993 release nrps live on stage from relix recorded in 1975. the story went that it was originally a king biscuit radio show from the beacon theater in nyc and released overseas as a boot. the group wanted to release it here but wanted extra songs to make their version more desirable to purchase than the boot. my brother jeff had been editor for relix and knew les kippel. they asked if i had any material from that period to add. years back i had been given my brother's old reel collection and among the shows he had was this 5/75 keystone show. i gave relix a few songs to use and they put the cd out legally.i have recently dug out the 42 year old reels and after a baking, have transferred them to digital. on the tape box there was a note that the master recording was done by betty cantor-jackson. this info doesn't appear to be listed anywhere under her credit or anywhere else for that matter making this an important discovery showing that there's probably more betty boards around than previously thought. i was intent on getting the ok from the bands involved to circulate the complete show although i knew i had a few obstacles to overcome. first off, the new riders do not allow unapproved sb recordings in public circulation. next was the fact that a few songs had been released officially meaning some sites would not allow it without an official ok. lastly, the fact that peter rowan, who also does not allow boot recordings, guests on two songs. i got in touch with the folks representing the new riders. after a bit of back and forth, not only did they give me the ok let this out, they gave me the ok to allow it in it's entirety including the few released songs. next up was getting in touch with peter rowan who i have known since the mid 70's. after some discussion with him and his rep, they too gave me the ok include the two songs he plays on. just a side note, the beacon theater show tracks used on the official release took place in the fall of 1975 and have nothing to do with this show so the king biscuit aspect that some sites are concerned with do not matter here., so, to be clear, this concert, which took place in may of 1975, has the following allowances., the new riders' people have given their full blessing to share this in it's entirety., peter rowan and his people have given the same permissions., these are one time permissions so don't think this opens the flood gates for other recordings by these artists to be shared without their specific ok., processing this recording took some time. the levels were all over the place and the reels needed baking to be completely playable. i wanted to get this as right as i could and i think the final transfer came out pretty well considering i was working with 42 year old reels., enjoy, dave, always more to come..., new riders of the purple sage, keystone, berkeley,ca,usa, may 17,1975, john dawson - rhythm guitar, vocals, david nelson - lead guitar, vocals, skip battin - bass, vocals, buddy cage - pedal steel guitar, spencer dryden - drums, peter rowan - vocals, guitar **, cd 1 set 1, 1-austin, texas > instant armadillo blues, 2-on top of old smokey, 3-you angel you, 4-louisiana lady, 5-peter rowan intro, 6-panama red **, 7-lonesome la cowboy **, 8-teardrops in my eyes, 9-rainbow, 10-henry, 11-ashes of love, 12-portland woman, cd 2 set 2, 1-good news, 2-singing cowboy, 3-take a letter maria, 4-i will never make you blue, 5-whiskey, 6-la bamba, 7-old man noll, 8-on the amazon, 9-crooked judge, 10-glendale train, 11-dead flowers, 12-nadine, sbd > betty cantor-jackson's master reels >, two memorex reels @ 7 1/2 ips (possibly 1st gen) >, baked to restore > played back on teac x-2000r >, edirol usb ua-1ex audio interface >, cool edit > cd wave editor >, traders little helper > flac, you can find more info on the official release here:,,, credits, tape archivist - dave tamarkin, live at beacon theatre, new york, 1975 and keystone, berkeley, may 17, 1975, this cd was originally released in europe in 1992 without my permission. not only that, the new riders and the authors of the songs havn't seen any royalties, and probably won't from the release. because of that i decided that we should release it 'legally'. the material here is quite enjoyable, and i like it! i hope you do too! - john dawson B+in comparison on louisiana lady, MAC>CD has a less full and less clear sound than this; a lot of this rates Afirst 30sec of d1t2 has higher hiss on left channel***
