Notes: pretty good soundboard tape – could be the master or a dub from the master; the audience is distant and some instruments are isolated to one channel but all in all a nice and listenable recording.
Someone throws a rock at the stage but no one is harmed, and Waylon seems to be having a good time anyway.

I have no idea if this recording or any other recording of this performance has been circulated.

Technical Notes:
No eq’ing or altering.
There is a hum mainly notable in-between songs. It doesn’t detract too much from the music so I made no attempt to eliminate it.
The two discs represent the two sides of the cassette respectively.

Musical Notes:
I believe The Crickets were at this performance and although I cannot find anything online to confirm this I am billing it as such. The first 12 songs are all Holly/Cricket tunes except 3 & 4 which are Holly-related and at the end of the “Well…All Right_It’s So Easy_Peggy Sue” medley he says “The Crickets” as if prompting them to take a bow and there are no more Holly/Crickets songs after that. This performance is less than a year from the release of “The Buddy Holly Story” movie which is mentioned in this performance. The Untitled track is a song “we wrote” (Jennings & The Crickets?) about that movie and what they got wrong. It is not “Old Friend” nor could I find any reference to it searching its lyrics.
The music comes right in on the cassette so I can’t confirm there aren’t missing songs. But I don’t know what other Holly/Cricket song they could have played.

Recorded around the same time as the excellent “Waylon Live” and the outlaw country masterpiece “The Ramblin’ Man” this is prime Waylon around the time outlaw country music was starting to find its way but before it was to explode into the mainstream with “Wanted! The Outlaws” released in 1976, becoming the first platinum country record.

A regional broadcast of a mini festival on KAMC radio. The DJ’s unintentionally interrupt the broadcast at one point carrying on a conversation as if they have no clue they are on the air. It’s unfortunate as it interrupts the show but it is somewhat humorous. I’m not sure what they were thinking except they seem to be pretty proud to be broadcasting live while carrying on a fairly amateurish production including interviewing a couple of audience members who’s burning question is “who’s played so far”.

This show has been circulating as 1974 and never given a specific date. Research has pointed to it being in the Fall of ’74, Waylon played the Western Palace in Dallas on September 25th which is documented on “Waylon Live”. Looking at the song selection which includes “Amanda” from “The Ramblin’ Man” released in September of 1974 as well as a lot of the same songs featured on “Waylon Live” it would stand to reason this is part of the same series of shows. In addition, High School Homecomings generally takes place during football season in the Fall. Though no specific date has surfaced, none of this has ever been officially released.

If only it contained Waylon’s knockout version of “Midnight Rider” from “The Ramblin’ Man” but that will have to wait for a future upload.

Waylon Jennings – Dallas, TX (08/xx/75)

Waylon Jennings
Electric Ballroom
Dallas, Texas (Early Show)
Late August, 1975

Download FLAC: Amazon Drive

In 2006 I shared a number of Waylon shows and have fallen into a few more from a big Waylon collector, this one comes from the same source of all the others I shared.

This is a regional radio broadcast from KAFM/KRLD Dallas of the early show, the 1st night of a 2 night stand Waylon played at the Electric Ballroom.

I have not been able to date this to the exact night but it appears to be from Late August.

Waylon was on a extensive national tour in support of ‘Dreaming My Dreams’ which was released in June, 1975. He was in Maine in early August documented on a circulating SB from Sugarloaf, Maine dated August 2nd.

I found a small article from the Houston Chronicle with a short blurb about him playing 2 nights at Liberty Hall in Houston, one of these dates was August 28th.

On Jimmy Buffet’s site there is a mention he opened for Waylon at the Wild West Music Festival in Austin on August 31.

Looking at the way most bands tour Texas, if coming from the North, they would play Dallas, Houston then Austin and not Houston, Austin then Dallas though that is possible it’s not very economical for a touring band.

With that evidence I would date this show sometime between August 24-27.
