Recording: AUD – MA?>?>D>CD
01 – High Lonesome Sound 02 – Pig In A Pen 03 – Panama Red 04 – Wild Horses 05 – Hobo Song
Comments: This was a complete set (around 30 minutes). Doc Watson performed before O&ITW and Jim and Jesse McReynolds and the Virginia Boys performed after O&ITW. The same setlist for this tape and also 04/28/74 make it a little suspicious.
admin note, 1/30/2011: the song names are about the only correct information in the above info file. There was no OAITW set on 4/27/74. The only OAITW set of the festival was on Sun. 4/28/74, to close out the festival. It doesn’t matter what your info files say … trust us. So the above comment, that Jim & Jesse followed OAITW, is just patently incorrect. One can hear continuous tape from the end of Hobo Song to whatt are clearly festival-ending comments from the stage. Also, this is not an aud, but a significantly degraded soundboard. High Lonesome Sound cuts in, and this whole thing is running about 6% slow … ouch.

This is not a high fidelity recording, but it is not bad. It certainly puts you in the time and place pretty well.
Thanks to everyone in involved in getting this from the Festival to our hard drives!
