A short but impressive set from Al Anderson-era NRBQ performed at the Boston Waterfront Festival. Don't know much about the event except that it was presented by radio station WCAS AM-740 in Cambridge, MA. WCAS was a daylight AM station (broadcasting from dawn to dusk) which existed as a folk music then alt-folk-rock-jazz station from the mid-70's to 1981. They used to broadcast live from Passim's in Havard Square on a regular basis (I have a copy of their Tom Waits shows straight off their reel which I may post soon) though I believe this is one of the few remotes they did from another location.

Terry Adams with Roswell Rudd and band
location and date unknown

15. Ugly Beauty (Monk)
16. Peggy (Adams) (fades early)
17. Old 52nd St. Rag (Herbie Nichols)

Received under mysterious circumstances and still clueless about any specifics regarding these performances. I've had these since the late's 80's which might support the theory that they were recorded around the time that NRBQ and Rudd recorded backing tracks for John Sebastian's songs from "The Care Bears Movie"(!)

Hope you dig 'em!
