Cactus - 26 December 1971 (AUD) Madison Square Garden, New York City, USA (DaD) APE

This is a torrent including APE files (, hopefully this works for you.

This a reseed from my original offer back on STG (Sharing The Groove) & EZT (Easy Torrent). I have other Cactus projects to offer.

Again, the great trader who transferred these recordings for me wishes to remain anonymous, so let's respect that. I am basically leaving the text file information the way that I received them.

As I usually do, I will torrent this for 48 hours or until there are enough completed downloads to support this. Please continue to share this & give back to DaD. I have other torrent projects ready & I'd like to move onto those.

Again, please help share this!! THX!!!

1) Commonly circulates as 26 November 1971, which appears to be wrong since Rusty constantly makes references to Christmas (i.e. instead of Thanksgiving); this was an opening set for Rod Stewart and the Faces - the Ron Wood database shows the Faces played the Garden on both the 26th of November and 26th of December; the Faces set also circulates with the 26 November date.
2) t05 includes the "all here together" vamp near the end.
3) Filler is unknown, possibly from the middle of "Evil," but hard to tell -- it may not even be Cactus
4) FYI: The transfer of this show did not come from my (Jeff) tape, but in fact came from the "anonymous" trader's tape, but the filler track came from my tape of the 12-26-71 recording.

Also, I hope STG's "The Beastmaster" doesn't mind me sharing his story in this torremt, from the original STG torrent. These stories are priceless.

The Cactus Madison Square Garden show was absolutely from Thanksgiving Weekend 1972.
I know because I was at that show, made a setlist, and a fellow that I went to
college with (A. Russo), taped that show along with the one from the Kinsgbridge
Armory in the Bronx. He made copies for me on Maxell UD35-7 reels back in 1973 and
I traded my copies out 2-3 times. Somewhere, my reels are in storage.
