I previously posted this show neglecting to delete a released track, causing it to be banned. I am sorry for that and am reposting with the one (and thankfully only) released track removed this time. A high energy outdoor Talking Heads summer show in the Big Apple. It’s a nice recording, not too much crowd noise and a little better deck and mikes were used for this, than the L.A. one that’s going up (after it gets a new transfer, I was all set to post it then found out it’s offspeed.) as a seperate companion to this, a sort of Heads in the West and East U.S.A. of this fine tour they did in late 80 and early 81 with Adrian Belew. This one is a little shorter show, even before removing the released track, (I think this is otherwise complete except a few seconds missed at the end of 1 song, I think it’s track 9- houses), they’re both nice concerts. This one has both my favorite songs of this or any Talking Heads tour, and hot versions of both, Crosseyed and Painless and Born Under Punches. (no crosseyed in LA, even though it’s a full 80 minute show). I am not certain that this is an almost complete show, but I think it is. For those of you who may think New York City is far north enough to be refreshingly cool for an August concert in Central Park- uh, usually not. I don’t know how hot it was this day, but with 10 million people and almost as many cars, planes and busses driving around, summer in NYC can get quite uncomfortable (although compared to a summer in Texas the weather and air probably seems refreshing) and a concert by the TH would likely not be their usual 80-90 minute set in those conditions. This sounds like a summer concert, a hot weather concert and a hot concert. Not just a
few good songs, they all sounded well played and it was a good setlist.

Do not sell this recording.
(not even for a pallet of punctured Dr. Peppers)
Trade freely and losslessly.

The Lostbrook Tape Series – Volume 98

Some concert venues evoke memories of an entire era. When I think of summertime concerts in the 1970’s, Wollman Rink is such a place for me. I have vivid memories of waiting all day in the hot sun on lines that snaked their way along the walking paths of Central Park. Meeting like-minded people who wanted to sit close to the stage was part of the experience. I have no idea why I sat in the cheap seats this day since all the tickets were inexpensive to begin with. The orchestra must have been sold out, but it worked out for the best. The sound
was crisp and clear where I sat, Gabriel was magnificent, and the tape is one of my best. I’ll never forget the blood red sunset reflecting off the boulders outside the rink as the crowd chanted along with “Biko.” This was my last concert at Wollman Rink, and, sadly, the only one I ever recorded there. When the festival moved to Pier 84 the next year, I didn’t follow. For me, it was one more sign that an era had ended.
