1976 11 06 - Pre-concert Soundcheck

~~ from unknown gen AUD source ~~

A rare and exciting piece of recording from this 1976/77 Tour,
probably the only pre-concert Soundcheck fragment known to exist on tape from this tour.
We're basically hearing Frank (guitar) and Ray (guitar, scat vocals) extensively jam and improvise with the band on
this vamp in the key of F, including elements from Pound For A Brown/Purple Lagoon on bass.

Very enjoyable.

Thanks a lot

RPI, Troy NY

The Collar City! Very Happy

If you just been lowered down here on tv by a wire connected to a brown leather harness, forced by a crazy person to insert a mysterious imported lamp into the reproductive orifice of a lady harpist, and you were a dwarf.....would you do it?

Thanks for the fix-ups C. My brother was at this show, but doesn't remember the sound check. A fun piece of tape.

Kind regards,
