My college roommate worked at a radio station and would occasionally bring home the original reels for the King Biscuit Flower Hour, Live From The Bottom Line, and other radio shows. This transfer is from my cassette that was made from the original reel way back in 1978.

Many of the Live From The Bottom Line shows appear on Wolfgang's Vault in lossy versions, but this one doesn't, so don't be concerned that this might be lossy.
This is not the same show as either of the Bottom Line shows, from Oct. 24 and 25, 1978 (where Keith Richards shows up for one song), currently torrented here:
Confusingly, the Bottom Line timeline (http://www.bottomlinecabaret.com/tline_index.html) lists Keith Richards as appearing at BOTH the May and October shows, which clearly wasn't the case (but then again, the Bottom Line timeline is full of mistakes. Note the band's name spelled as "Rickpile" with members "Billy Bremmer" and "Dave Edmonds").

And just for the sake of completeness, I note that an FM-sourced and more complete version of what's probably the May 8 show was uploaded to Dime back in the EZT days. It was removed from the tracker in April 2005. Here's the info from the dime-bot regarding that torrent:
A new torrent has been uploaded to EZT.

ROCKPILE BOTTOM LINE NYC WNYU FM 1978?
Since the first Rockpile show was in such demand, I decide to release another Rockpile show as the second of my basement tapes. This show was taped from WNYU FM in NYC and is from my original first generation master tape. Unfortunately, I never marked the tape with the date of the show. I am guessing that it is around 1978. WNYU FM was a college radio station (NEW YORK UNIVERSITY) that broadcast taped shows from the Bottom Line every Monday night from 10 till 11:30 pm. I have many, many more tapes from this series. I forgot to give credit to Craig Fritschkorn who did such a fine job of remastering this and the first Rockpile show I offered. Great job!! If anyone is inclined to do artwork for these two shows I would love to get copies for my own collection. Credit for the source tape and the remastering would be appreciated
