Aztec Two-Step is an award winning folk/rock duo/band. This has always been a favorite
show of mine in the past - mellow and easy flowing.
The concert covers material from the group's first 3 albums:
Aztec Two-Step, Second Step and Two's Company.
There may be a better copy of this show available somewhere, but I have never seen
one posted anywhere.
db.etree.org shows an Aztec Two-Step concert on 12/23/1977 with no setlist. That listing
may refer to this show. However, the announcer intro to this show mentions that they are welcoming in the year 1977.
The show is in support of the new album, "Two's Company" which has a 1976 release date.
As a result, I took the performance date of 12/23 and corrected the year. According to
an online converter, 12/23 fell on a Thursday and WLIR normally did their live
broadcasts on Tuesday. This could have been a Thursday show since it took place around
the holiday season and there may have been special broadcasts.
This recording was transferred from reel tape to digital back in the year 2000. The tape
was 23 years old at the time of transfer. Rather than EQ it to boost up the high end
I left it as is. Listen to the samples and you'll hear that the recording is still quite
Aztec Two-Step is still touring and doing shows along the east coast of the U.S. and
around New England.
