COMMENTS:
I received this show as a trade years ago….there may be other copies available from other traders.

Recorded during the height of the Outlaw country movement, which had moved into the mainstream and long before Waylon and Willie had their bitter falling out. The Outlaws where riding the wave of the first country Platinum selling LP “Wanted! The Outlaws”.
Out of all the artists involved in the Outlaw country movement, I always felt Waylon was the poster child for the movement and lived the outlaw country life…while Willie was note perfect every night, Waylon changed up his shows, flubbed lines at times (with some chemical help) and was occasionally out of tune but attacked every show like it may be his last…another words he put on a helluva show night after night.

This show came to me dated only as 1976, I’ve found the Waylon collectors don’t appear to be too detailed with dates as 90% of the shows I have are only dated with the year. There are a few clues in the show that can help narrow it down and I’ve landed on the most likely date being sometime in April.

First off, before “Suspicious Minds” Waylon mentions that the song had just been
re-released, the re-released single first hit the charts on May 1st, 1976 peaking at No. 2. It appears the single was re-released in April. In addition, Waylon was in the studio recording in March, it’s documented that on March 22nd he recorded “Are You Ready For The Country” and on March 24th he recorded “Jack O’ Diamonds”.
“Wanted! The Outlaws” went Platinum on March 30th which possibly spurred the re-release of “Suspicious Minds”.

Waylon announces during the show that there will be a Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic in Gonzalez, Texas and it would stand to reason April would be a likely timeframe for this announcement. There is a possibility the show took place in March but it’s not likely it was earlier than that.

The show itself is a classic, recorded very close to the stage with minimal to no crowd noise, there is nice instrument separation and clarity. There was a slight high pitched hum that I took out but other than that not much had to be done besides some slight editing.

Waylon always did great rock covers from “Midnight Rider” to “Are You Ready For The Country” to “Will The Wolf Survive” and we get two of his best here with “Can’t You See” and “Suspicious Minds”.

We are fortunate to have such a great sounding audience recording of this historic tour!

Sit back, Crank it UP and Enjoy!

Notes: pretty good soundboard tape – could be the master or a dub from the master; the audience is distant and some instruments are isolated to one channel but all in all a nice and listenable recording.
Someone throws a rock at the stage but no one is harmed, and Waylon seems to be having a good time anyway.

Recorded around the same time as the excellent “Waylon Live” and the outlaw country masterpiece “The Ramblin’ Man” this is prime Waylon around the time outlaw country music was starting to find its way but before it was to explode into the mainstream with “Wanted! The Outlaws” released in 1976, becoming the first platinum country record.

A regional broadcast of a mini festival on KAMC radio. The DJ’s unintentionally interrupt the broadcast at one point carrying on a conversation as if they have no clue they are on the air. It’s unfortunate as it interrupts the show but it is somewhat humorous. I’m not sure what they were thinking except they seem to be pretty proud to be broadcasting live while carrying on a fairly amateurish production including interviewing a couple of audience members who’s burning question is “who’s played so far”.

This show has been circulating as 1974 and never given a specific date. Research has pointed to it being in the Fall of ’74, Waylon played the Western Palace in Dallas on September 25th which is documented on “Waylon Live”. Looking at the song selection which includes “Amanda” from “The Ramblin’ Man” released in September of 1974 as well as a lot of the same songs featured on “Waylon Live” it would stand to reason this is part of the same series of shows. In addition, High School Homecomings generally takes place during football season in the Fall. Though no specific date has surfaced, none of this has ever been officially released.

If only it contained Waylon’s knockout version of “Midnight Rider” from “The Ramblin’ Man” but that will have to wait for a future upload.
