Fresh on the heels of the October, 1972 release of their third album, Gypsy Cowboy, the New Riders of the Purple Sage embarked on an East Coast tour that would quickly solidify their reputation as America’s premier psychedelic-country-rock outfit. Pulling into the historic confines of Tremont Street’s Boston Music Hall on a Tuesday night in December, the New Riders had their engines primed and delivered a powerful set of originals that included "Sutter’s Mill," "Groupie" and "Whiskey" from Gypsy Cowboy, and fan favorites "Truck Drivin’ Man," "Hello Mary Lou" and the stompin’ show closer "Willie And The Hand Jive." With Buddy Cage now firmly entrenched behind the pedal steel guitar and taking the band to a new sonic plane, you can feel the energy and excitement of the night come solidly through on NRPS staples "Whatcha Gonna Do," "Portland Woman," "Last Lonely Eagle," " Louisiana Lady," "Glendale Train" and "I Don’t Know You." A rollicking version of Chuck Berry’s "School Days" displays their passion for boogie, and the evening’s encores consist of folk-rocker and opening act Eric Andersen joining in on the fun for a version of his "I Love To Sing My Ballads, Mama (But They Only Want To Hear Me Rock & Roll)" and the Rolling Stones’ "Honky Tonk Women." Boston Music Hall 12/5/72 was produced directly off the master analog reel to reel recording and was mastered by Stephen Barncard—who’s production credits include the first three NRPS albums and the Grateful Dead’s American Beauty.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I got this CD because I wanted some of the cuts on a CD format and didn't want to shell out for the individual CDs because I have then in LP format. The cuts are OK, but the production quality is not what it could be based on other "live" performance recordings I have purchased over the years. Minus 2-stars for production quality.
