Some comments:

QUICK UPDATE - this is really good. Clear, separation, only a couple charming drunk idiots, and NOT during songs, a fabulous document. Better than the Shrine show in November '74.

This is a great show, thanks grplasa! Always nice to get a "new" Bob Welch era FM show. This is an excellent recording.

I gotta say this is one of the best setlists of the 74 the last of the bob welch led Mac very good show nice jams band is tight Thanks !!!

I don't have torrent access. Would love if you could post a download. If not, cheers and thanks. The set list has me drooling.

Incredible. Never thought I would hear Bad Loser live.

jbrownsjr 09-13-2020 08:19 PM

DougL. Thanks so much!!!

jbrownsjr 09-14-2020 08:14 AM

Wow!!! that' was so much better than the Box Set show!!!

I immediately sent it to Tony. I think Tony fainted. :]

DougL what a treat. I can't thank you enough.

I did faint. And then I revived myself long enough to convert the audio to an MP3 and I've been playing it ever since. Thank you, Doug!

A few of observations: Christine's piano playing really comes through here. Bad Loser sounds terrific and jazzy and sexy, in large part because of the piano part. Did you notice, too, that she's playing the Oh Well guitar riff on the keys? That's very cool. The effect is bluesy but also kinda' afro-cuban sounding. Night Watch was a treat--and a surprise. The crowd went nuts after I'd Rather Go Blind. The opening number, Coming Home, is a ballsy way to introduce a show. It's so eerie, atmospheric, and moody. One might expect an all-out rocker that says "We're here!" But the fact that they went with Coming Home says a lot about their musical integrity and their willingness to experiment.

I don't think I ever need to hear Rattlesnake Shake again my life and I'd be happy.

Thankfully, we get the full Bermuda Triangle, WITH piano solo. I am so effing pissed that the one-minute piano solo mid-way through that song was dropped from the recent rerelease of the Record Plant Show. Why? It's tasteful, sexy, and effective. So annoying. I was really looking forward to blasting the FULL remastered live Bermuda Triangle in my car but without the piano solo, it feels like a hollow victory.

Your avatar is very appropriate. Loved enjoying that with you! What a treat.

It kinda surprises me they didn’t play more from “Heroes” at these 1974 shows!

On Ice 09-15-2020 10:48 AM

They did play 4 songs from Heroes, but could have used another Christine song- they obviously were looking for a hit in the title track but perhaps by this time they knew the song wasn't getting much traction. But Come a Little Bit Closer I think could've been every bit as much of a show stopper as Why, and who knows, maybe word of mouth would've brought this amazing song to the masses? Surprised the BN version didn't remake it on the White Album.

Agreed. I think FM was in a unique position for the '74 tour. They needed to promote their new record. But they also needed establish that they were the REAL FM, which required them to delve a lot into their back catalogue. They also were probably eager to promote some of the material from Mystery, which never got a full-tour promotion.

Apart from that; great concert!
