— Original uploader’s notes:
I received this concert as “1972-04-11 Chicago, IL”, but it turns out to be from New Paltz, NY, 1973. I’m not sure if the date is correct – if anyone knows when Prine went to Rome, it would probably answer the question. It’s really nice to hear such a concert recording, just him and his guitar.
The version of “Dear Abby” from Sweet Revenge album and this concert sound identical, with the same stage banter – “about three months ago I was in Rome, Italy”, but has some interesting stage banter that was not included on the album: “Lyndon Johnson died; Edward G. Robinson died; J. Carrol Naish died…”
