Dallas, Texas (Early Show)
Late August, 1975
In 2006 I shared a number of Waylon shows and have fallen into a few more from a big Waylon collector, this one comes from the same source of all the others I shared.
This is a regional radio broadcast from KAFM/KRLD Dallas of the early show, the 1st night of a 2 night stand Waylon played at the Electric Ballroom.
I have not been able to date this to the exact night but it appears to be from Late August.
Waylon was on a extensive national tour in support of 'Dreaming My Dreams' which was released in June, 1975. He was in Maine in early August documented on a circulating SB from Sugarloaf, Maine dated August 2nd.
I found a small article from the Houston Chronicle with a short blurb about him playing 2 nights at Liberty Hall in Houston, one of these dates was August 28th.
On Jimmy Buffet's site there is a mention he opened for Waylon at the Wild West Music Festival in Austin on August 31.
Looking at the way most bands tour Texas, if coming from the North, they would play Dallas, Houston then Austin and not Houston, Austin then Dallas though that is possible it's not very economical for a touring band.
With that evidence I would date this show sometime between August 24-27.
