A Vegas Treat


On this album you’ll find many tracks recorded live in Las Vegas from 1970 to 1975, including rare soundboard recordings and a stage rehearsal. There’s an alternate February 1972 live version of Never Been To Spain, which was never used by RCA, four alternate live versions from February 1970 also not used by RCA, six live versions from March 19th 1975, a stage rehearsal from 1972, and part of the February 10th 1973 dinner show. As a special bonus there are two authentic radio spots from 1969 and 1971, plus two rare backstage recordings. A total of 31 great tracks!

Note: Only a part of the dinner show from February 10th 1973 was recorded using a bass-heavy mix, possibly as a guide for future Fender bass players if ever Jerry Scheff left the show. He did exactly that just two weeks later. These recordings were first released on Aloha Jerry and Echoes Of Aloha on the Audionics label, but are now presented here, for the first time, in the right order
