Created from a soundboard recording kept for 40 years by pedal steel player Neil Flanz, then acquired by Amoeba Music (2) and maintained for another 10 years in their Los Angeles store. The tape was rediscovered when Amoeba moved to a new location. In collaboration with Gram Parsons' family, a Kickstarter campaign was established to restore the tape and produce the album.

    This sounds better than I expected. Beautiful concert, and Emmylou sings solo in some songs. No skips in my copy, and dead silent vinyl.

      Great to have for historical purpose. The sound is not far from excellent, but listenable for what its significance represents.
      The vinyl is good, no issues after a good cleaning.
      Please clean all your new records, it is as important as used records.

        As of 12/20/2023 Amoeba no longer has this LP listed on their site.

          My records were both flat and without defects, definitely worth giving a good cleaning before playing, I didn't have the skipping issues others did but they did seem pretty dirty (and everyone needs to cool it with the crappy paper inners). Music itself is phenomenal obviously, recording itself is fairly basic but overall commendable release that I'll definitely listen to regularly. Not sure how their CS is but this isn't super limited (7500) so buy direct from Amoeba if concerned about needing replacements. They have 15% off for two days every month if you sign up for the their e-mail list you'll be notified.

            it's a worthwhile release - sound is pretty good seeing as how it is from a cassette tape, nicely cleaned up by that Master of Sound - Gary Hobish. My Side 3 has a relatively bad edge warp, however, it does play through and on first listen there doesn't seem to be any wow/flutter problem, just my stylus bobbing up and down near the edge of the record. I would return, as £50 is a lot to play for a Record that is just about OK, quality wise, but of course this was a Limited Black Friday Release, imported to the UK, and the shop i bought from, Banquet Records, is now Sold Out, so i will make do.....

              3 people have mentioned skips - 1 on side b, 1 on side d, and 1 throughout. Just adding that I have a lock/repeating skip on side c approx 3:15 into “Sin City,” which plays through for about 5 seconds with static (not good!) when I put a weight on, even though there’s no noticeable warp. Also got mine new through the kickstarter. Otherwise I don’t have any complaints about the sound and my records appear clean & flat out of the packaging. I can’t see what might be causing the skip, but imagine it’s a pressing defect based on how it plays through?

                Skips on 2nd side that were unable to be fixed - bought brand new

                  Attention people. Don’t pay $60+ for this record. They have plenty of them at all 3 Amoeba locations. They do mail order.

                    My copy had no skips or anything funky pressing-wise. Great collection of live tracks, also hearing the stage banter was super neat. Some of the versions here I found myself preferring to the studio arrangements after spinning a few times. As far as the audio goes, the pressing itself is fine, it's simply a live album so the audio is just not going to be perfect regardless. That's part of the ride haha. It's likely due to the occasional sound imperfections that the recordings were shelved in the first place and left unreleased all these years, so I'm just grateful to be able to experience it at all! Overall if you are a big fan of Gram and Emmylou this is worth it if you see it imo.

                      My copy is unlistenabe. Terrible pressing. Skips and slides all throughout the record.
