TOM RUSH - No Tears Goodbye

The schaefer music festival central park NY (1972)
2015 | Cargo
Details…

This is a recording of a show at the Wollman Rink in Central Park on August 12, 1972, as part of the Schaefer Music Festival. Tom plays with a full band featuring Trevor Veitch on lead electric guitar. This recording of the show was aired live on UK radio at the time, and so according to UK law now in the public domain.

WARNING: the audio is pretty rough. Feedback, occasional random bits of conversation from stage-side, a somewhat chaotic mix—this will not be up for any engineering awards. But it has a compelling energy and takes me back to the moment, and to the era. This is one of the things music is so good at!
