MSG 1969 Stones show with Terry Reid

Hypothetically speaking: If I happen to have or have access to a 16 track master of Terry Reid's show from the 1969 MSG show when he opened for the Rolling Stones and I was thinking of putting it out, how well do you think it would do? I would like to know if people on this site would be interested in getting it. Are there enough Terry Reid fans out there? Would love to hear the feed  back. This
would done be with Terry's consent of coarse (Hypothetically). Any suggestions
on how to promote the CD/L.P. (L.P. title/photos/ How about a bonus DVD from the tour?) Thanks.

A great voice ...... Wasn't he offered the Led Zep gig ?
I'd love to hear the 69 show.

Yes, he was offer the Zep spot.. Besides the Stones 1969 U.S. Tour, Terry also opened for the Stones on their 1966 U.K. Tour in the band Peter Jay and the New Jaywalkers. Also Ike & Tina Turner open for the Stones on this 66 Tour.

I would definately be interested in a CD/LP of Terry Reid at Madison Square Garden!

I feel like this is something Light in the Attic might be interested in and they have released one of Mr. Reid's records previously.
Personally, I would love this due to the care LITA takes with their releases. The quality is always top notch and they have a loyal following of fans and record stores.

I had never heard of him before seeing him open for the Stones on the ‘69 tour. But he grabbed my attention right away. I thought he was brilliant.

As for a release . . . I think the market would be quite small. Since that time, he has pretty much disappeared from view. While I would want a copy, I don’t think many people under 65 would be interested. I have vivid memories of that ‘69 show but some of the friends who went with me remember very little. Maybe it can be attributed to the drugs, maybe getting old, who knows. But I don’t think too many of them would remember Terry Reid.

Well, there’s my 2 cents.

I saw Terry Reid in 1969... open for BB King, Ike and Tina Turner when they were all opening for the Rolling Stones.

AND 50 years later ... I REMEMBER PRECISELY ZERO.
Especially about Terry Reid!

As others have said I'm not sure if would be a bid seller as Reid was never a big name act but I would love to get a deluxe set if you do something VJ.

Wonder if there might be more Stones MSG '69 material wherever the Terry Reid came from.

I would love to hear it. If you could release it on vinyl that would be amazing.

"Hypothetically speaking," (as VideoJames described it above), it would also be nice if more Stones MSG '69 material surfaced (hint, hint, wink, wink), especially just in time for the fastly approaching 50th anniversary of the Garden shows. Best Christmas present ever for Stones collectors!

Terry Reid's The Other Side of the River consisting of outtakes from his The River album was released by Light In The Attic in 2016 and it did pretty well in terms of sales. I think there would definitely be a market for a release like that. Terry is a well known "cult" artist with a small but dedicated following. His music also appeared in Rob Zombie movies which gives him a certain cred and interest among younger people. I think it would be an amazing thing. Light In The Attic would be a choice, but I'm sure many labels that might want an opportunity to put such a thing out.

At the Forum in Inglewood, CA on November 8, 1969 there was an afternoon hockey game followed by two Stones concerts that included the well known supporting acts of Terry Reid, BB & Ike & Tina. To my memory the Stones did not take the stage for the 2nd show until 2:00 a.m. On the very fine boot of this show you can hear Jagger allude to the late/early hour saying "If we had known we would have brought our toothbrushes, OK?" Thankfully, Terry Reid did not perform the during the 2nd show. Nothing personal, it was just a jammed up night. To make up for the hour Jagger promised to stay on a long while. The 2nd show did get a full set list while the 1st show was short a song or maybe two.

Here is a trivia question for you: How many shows did the band do on November 9, 1969? If the 2nd show in Oakland started before midnight, the answer would be 3!

Yes please! Terry Reid is a legend
Loved seeing him play with a few fairly recently (one of which was one MTaylor)

To add to this...

I think Terry Reid would be right up Marc Maron's alley in terms of someone he'd like to interview. Exposure on WTF as the album is coming out would boost sales dramatically I bet as he has a ton of listeners.
I'm sure there are other podcasts which would help as well but Maron loves rock'n'roll, vinyl and his interviews are in-depth enough to bring light to an artists who isn't as well known as many of his contemporaries.
