Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band, 15 July 1975, The Roxy, Los Angeles, CA (Cyrus)
Following jazzfan's lead, here is another solid 1975 show from the Magic ones...
The date is under some dispute, but is certainly the 15th, 16th or 17th. My copy came dated the 15th, and my source (not the taper, or even a known generation BTW) was adamant about the date.
So, that is what I have gone with. Now, even if that's true, it does not solve the problem of whether this is the early or late show though - Greg Davidson: "We did 4 shows at the Roxy in L.A. "
Andy McConnell: "A two-night stint at Hollywood's Roxy Theatre has already been added." So, 2 nights with 2
Anyway, whatever it is, it's a solid show with nice sound...you'll enjoy it.
