Taper's Comments:

1 - HELP!! If you have any uncirculated SPIRIT shows, or better quality FM
broadcasts than what's been posted here before, please share them. If you
know anybody who has shows that fit this category that aren't on DIME, please
dub off their stuff and share it. I'm trying to write a book on SPIRIT and need
all the information I can get. I have a database of over 1500 gigs 1967-1996, and
want to find as much information as I can to add to it. If you have any memories
of where you saw SPIRIT, the more specific the better (venue, city, date, supporting
bands, etc.), I'd love to know that as well. Please leave that in the comments
section or PM me. Thank you!

2 - Show description & comments follow:
Before I had a VCR, I rigged up a way to record the sound off of my TV. Most TV's
during this time frame did not have an audio out feature, so I purchased some sort
of "black box" thing that supposedly did something to help you play your TV sound
through your stereo. I opened my back cover on my TV, and got a cable with
alligator clips, that I attached to each of the inputs to the TV speaker. That ran to
the "black box", and then to my tape deck. Understand that TV sound back then
was hardly high fidelity, but it was at least respectable, and worth having. The biggest
shortfall in sound was the high end. As a fellow DIMER so aptly pointed out, TV sound
only went to around +/- 5,000 Hz then, where most things considered high fidelity were
three times that.

This comes from a show that also featured FOGHAT (available in a separate post).
From "Lonesome Dave" Peverett's extensive notes on the 1974 FOGHAT tour, there
is a notation of being at the "Shrine Auditorium" in Los Angeles from August 22-24,
1974. It is the only mention of the group being in California that year. THE EDGAR WINTER
GROUP was also in California in August, playing the Inglewood Forum on August 17, 1974
with BAD COMPANY. I can only assume the show was recorded in that time frame.

I remember seeing THE EDGAR WINTER GROUP at the Baltimore Civic Center with POCO
and a relatively unknown PETER FRAMPTON as openers. I always remember THE EDGAR
WINTER GROUP's performance, as they came out and did all of Edgar's and Rick's hits
first, then spent the rest of the 1974 concert on endless jams of a Elvis Presley cover and
"Tobacco Road"!! This was likely prior to the "Shock Treatment" album, but I don't really
remember. Anyway, enjoy.
