THE JF BACKSTORY
JEMS loves a vintage taper series and we’re pleased to offer another one, this time from the archive of our friend JF, who taped in and around Southern California in the ’70s and later resumed taping in Boston in the ’80s. He frequented smaller venues, like the Troubadour and the Roxy, leaving arenas to others and leaning more towards the folksier, jazzier and eclectic sides of rock.

JF was also an active trader at the time and this recording is one of the uncirculated or under-circulated gems from the early ’70s that are also in JF’s archive. Installment 11 is what we believe to be a previously uncirculated audience pull Paul Simon’s 1973 solo tour stop at the legendary Nassau Coliseum. For the era and given that much of the show is solo acoustic, it offers a listenable if slightly distant ìyou are thereî mono recording. Samples provided.

We shared the recording with frogster who sent some additional insights on the performance:

“Urubamba was the band formed on request by Paul Simon to Joerge Milchberg to reactivate the ‘Los Incas’ for his Live Rhymin’ tour 1973/1974.

They played as a back-up on many songs like ‘Duncan’, ‘The Boxer’, ‘El Condor Pasa’, etc. Urubamba did not appear on any Paul Simon recording, but their former band ‘Los Incas’ recorded ¥El condor pasa¥ (Bridge) and ¥Duncan’ (Paul Simon) with him.

The band can be heard in their 1973 formation on the Live Rhymin’ album released a year later. The band itself does not exist anymore, but their members are all very active today.

The date and venue are verified on the Paul Simon’s site: http://www.paul-simon.info/PHP/showreview.php?id_concert=443 albeit different setlist.

Some cuts here and there, but all the songs are complete; what is cut are the chants or the audience between songs. Unfortunately, there’s no way to tell if any song is missing between the cuts, as the setlist of this recording is 20 songs and the standard setlist on the tour, according to the Paul Simon’s site, was of 20+ songs.”

Taking this one over the finish line on JEMS’ behalf is the aforementioned frogster, who came to our attention through many excellent posts and reposts of late, including a fine comp of early Simon & Garfunkel. Thanks to him for taking it the last mile and to glasnostrd19 who suggested we connect with frogster. Big ups also to Tapeboy who handled the pitch correction as he so often does.

But our heartiest thanks goes to JF, who reached out on DIME (you could be next!) and offered us his archive, which had been sitting in boxes, 6000 miles away from where he lives today, for 20+ years. Like so many early tapers, he had great stories to tell and the memories flooded back as we sorted through tapes. We are pleased to be able to bring his work to all of you. Please let him know through your comments that you are, too.

*The introduction is edited out. It’s only 1 minute offically released music played from a reel at the beginning of the show.

I know I know, Billy Joel right? Really, I mean, do I want my street cred all but lost? But you know what? This is a good show. He’s still a bit cheezy, but the playing is good, and the energy is a lot of fun, and the sound is great. And come on, just try to tell me you don’t sing along when “Piano Man” comes on!
