Atwood Hall at
Worcester, Mass. U.S.A.
March 13, 1974
performance quality: very good
recording quality: the music is A, but
the between song talk has a little noise,
mainly because Browne talks rather quietly
(compared to the volume of everything else.)
When he's singing, he comes through clearly.

and may the only "brownouts" we have in life
be Jackson Browne (or Baron Browne) concerts.
I don't know when WCUW broadcasted this concert,
probably long before I'd ever heard of it. I did
a re-broadcast of this show on June 5, 1992 in
the very early days of Glasnost Radio. At the time
of this concert, WCUW was Clark Univ. radio before
it became independent public community radio. This
recording here was apparently made for (or during)
their original broadcast. I recorded this from the
studio during the rebroadcast, fortunately managing to
avoid an over the air recording which would have been
of far less quality. There is some editing of applause
in encore breaks, and between a few songs, but all the
tuning and talking is included.
This is one of the 1st WCUW recordings of a major act.
Return to Forever was also recorded a month earlier.
before "Jamaica...", Browne asked if they're playing in a school.
after it, Linda Ronstadt is introduced and joins in the set.
the tape was listed as March 1st, but was unlikely the
orpheum concert of that date since WCUW's recorded shows
were from the Worcester area.
