Goody adds:
Note that ~1’51” of Joni’s intro to “Carey” in Track 07 was carefully edited out for the broadcast, for some reason.
The complete intro is included in what’s called the Aircheck tape’s Track 17. The missing bit begins at ~01’39” and ends at ~3’30”.
Track 18 of the Aircheck tape is the same performance of “Carey” found in Track 07, but not the same track.

This show is screwy, and I don’t know why. I’ve had the CD for too long to remember the ins and outs of why it is screwy. The track listing almost matches what it say on Etree but they are out of order. After the intro (which is track 5) it mostly goes like the show is supposed to go, although the final song is obviously a different recording. What I’m really saying is that I have no idea whether or not these songs are actually from the show I’m saying their from. Either way its still a good collection of songs.

Notes from Mat, circa 2009.

People do strange things in the world of bootlegs.  I once got a recording of a Grateful Dead show with a three page explanation of how the recording came to be.  I’ve long since lost the explanation, and have forgotten the details, but the gist was that one really obsessed guy spent several years hunting down various versions of the show (as in recorded by several different people) to get the absolute best quality for each song.  He sent lots of e-mails, made tons of phone calls, etc all trying to get the perfect version.

Of a concert.  One show.  Years he spent getting just the right recording.  From a band that has hundreds, if not thousands of shows recorded to tape.  That’s the obsession I tread in every day.

It isn’t always the obsessive, weirdness of finding the perfect recording, sometimes, lots of times actually people like to make compilations.  They take a variety of songs from different shows and make a compilation to fit their needs.  Some times it is a collection of their favorite songs.  Other times it might be to make a live version of their favorite studio album.  Or whatever, people like to make mix-tapes.  I don’t blame them sometimes you can create a really great show from a string of concerts.

Enter James Taylor.  This particular bootleg is one of those mixes.

I know that the first part (from “You Can Close Your Eyes” to “Promised Land” ) is from a concert at the Carnegie Hall in 1974 (though whether it was May 26 or 27 is up for debate.) The rest of the songs are from March 16, 1970, probably. Etree lists it as an unknown date in 1970, but a crappy bootlegger (he’s actually trying to sell the show, which is really bad karma and thus he gets no link) gives the March 16 date.

Why someone would take two perfectly good shows, cut them in half and then merge them together is beyond me (other than to give it the name “From Carnegie to Berkely” but that seems really asinine.) The two shows seem to be available in a complete form, but for whatever reason, someone decided to split them like this. Somewhere I got this split copy (sorry I can’t remember where I’m unorganized like that.) Now I’m going to share it. I suppose since I’m complaining about it, I should actually track down both full shows, but that’s more trouble than its worth. Truth be told I didn’t realize it was split like this before I uploaded it, but now that it is uploaded I might as well share. Plus, who cares, right?

It is a good sounding show. I’m pretty sure they are both soundboard recordings. James is for the most part doing his acoustic-country-rock thing, with some nice piano work on the Berkeley set by Carole King. If you like James, then this is a nice set even if it isn’t a complete show.
