t1 – Alice’s Restaurant 19:01

Original Seeder Notes:
This is from my own collection. I recorded this on a reel deck from the radio one afternoon in 1966 during the WBAI Spring Fundraiser. I’m not sure of the exact date. I have to find my original notes from the
reel, but I’m sure it’s from 1966. It’s obvious that no one had ever heard this before by the reaction from those in the studio at the tiome of the broadcast.

I made the cassette copy some time ago. Some day I’ll re-transfer from the reel. There are a few minor level adjustments at the very beginning of the song.

This copy is considerably cleaner than most I’ve heard from this broadcast.

02. Alice’s Restaurant (“Part 2”)/
03. The Pause Of Mister Claus/
04. Closing Remarks

Original Notes by Hank R. :
This is an amazing early performance sourced from a mono PA recording. Arlo introduces “Alice’s Restaurant” as “Alice… Part 2,” but it’s essentially the version that we’ve all come to know and
love… Essential listening! Approx. 40m. Recommended!

  1. Great great choice for today! I listen to this with my family every year on cassette, and it will be fun to finally hear another version of this great song (and the great Pickle song).

    Thanks Mat and happy Thanksgiving.

  2. My old copy was dated 02-27-66. I think the speed might start off a bit slow and may get slower as the reel goes on, but it’s a nice upgrade.

  3. Finally got to hear this. It is an upgrade from what I have, but just for the record, the date on this is 2/27/67, not ’66. That’s David Bromberg on back up guitar. Thanks for this. I’ve got mucho Arlo if anyone wants to trade.
