It’s been awhile since we broke out the good China…let’s go show-diving:
- Traffic — 11/18/70 — Fillmore East [.asx]
- Flaming Lips — 2/8/88 — Norman, Oklahoma [.asx] (early shit!)
- Richard Thompson — 10/12/88 — Fillmore SF [.asx]
- Professor Longhair — 8/23/75 — Philly Folk Festival [.asx]
- Richard Manuel solo — 1986 — Woodstock NY? [.asx]
Seriously, I listen to that Traffic show once or twice a week. It’s dyn-o-mite. From the fantastic Bill Graham intro (…in association with Her Majesty the Queen, we bring you Traffic) to the Dear Mr. Fantasy closer, there isn’t a single moment of downtime on this show. The Medicated Goo, Pearly Queen, Empty Pages opening triumvirate can’t be touched, and even if you’re a Traffic newb, you’ll walk away wanting to dig up everything you can from these guys. Youse guys. Get on it.
