OldNeumanntapr Notes:
This show came to me in a CD trade mislabeled, and in addition, the track indexes were off and some tracks contained multiple songs. I did a lot of online research and looked through the Dick Dale archive of past shows on the Dick Dale website and I could tell right away that it wasn't what it claimed to be. Listening to the 'clues' on the recording also helped to pinpoint the correct show. Dick always mentioned where he would be on the next few nights, and this recording had him next playing Palookaville (in Santa Cruz), and also a theater in Petaluma. So, it was obviously not from the Birchmere in Virginia! (which is what the CD was labeled.) Dick also mentioned the California coast, and the airport in Oxnard. Also he was calling Jim Pewter to the stage and someone said that he was 'upstairs'. The Ventura Theater dressing rooms are on the second floor. I finally found an advertisement in a Ventura newspaper that had the show listed so I knew this had to be it! I don't know why it was mislabeled. Maybe the taper was hoping to keep the recording a secret. Maybe it was just an accident. In any case I'm glad I was able to figure it out. Also, For some reason, the acoustic portion of this show appears to be missing. RIP Dick. You truly lived up to your name as 'The King Of The Surf Guitar!'
