TRT: 46:45

NOTES:
I decided to incorporate Diamonds On My Windshield and Spare Parts into a single track, despite that the back cover lists side B as tracks B1 – B5.
The condition of this vinyl bootleg was MINT when I played it back for digital transfer. There were only one or two pops, which I removed.
The exact date of this performance is unknown, but etree is claiming the date is from some point in February of 1975, so that’s what I’m going with (see link below).
Contrary to what the back cover says about the location of this recording, The Troubadour is technically located in West Hollywood, not Los Angeles.
Asylum Records released their own official compilation album entitled ‘Bounced Checks’, which does not contain anything from this recording.

I recorded this several years ago. The reason I never shared it is the big “hum” and other noise in this recording, especially in the Intro DJ and the first 2 minutes and 2 seconds of Eggs And Sausage. I tried to clean it, but wasn’t able to remove the “hum” without damaging music. The interfering noise reduces during the course of the show.

Om 2016-12-26 there was a rebroadcast. Unfortunately I was driving home from work at the beginning of the broadcast. I drove as fast as possible but only managed to record (this time digital) the last 2,5 songs (not added to this upload).

In the intro Hubert tells us he doesn’t know who recorded this. He was present at the show but he had the flu. He was covered with a blanket because of the fever. Two days later the flu was over. He calls it “The healing force of music”.
