High-quality soundboard recordings from Gram Parsons Philadelphia club show in 1973 were discovered in a box at Amoeba Records. Here is the link to more info and the Kickstarter campaign to get these released. I apologize if this has already been posted, but I scrolled back and did a search and didn’t see anything. This should be excellent!

The Kickstarter goal is $50,000, they are currently over $71,000, so I guess the project is a go! The tracks posted in the link sound amazing, and they haven’t even been mastered yet. The target date to ship the CD is next August, the vinyl will take longer. It’s like waiting on the new Stones album!

50K to digitalize a 1h tape and press 2000 CDs?
Who's behind the project? Sam Bankman-Fried? grinning smiley

Sounds fantastic. Will be interesting to hear how the vocal mics picked up the instruments on other tracks. This is essentially a vocal duet over acoustic strumming. Didn't notice the steel guitar until near the end, but that may have been because I was so enthralled by the vocals. Much clearer than some of the muddy old bootlegs I tracked down over the years.

Ha! It’s a bit more than that. Read the article.

Here is another track from this project. This is before any cleaning-up or mastering.

Can't wait for this! It sounds like it's possibly the best Gram Parsons concert ever.

Good things come to those that wait. But seriously, 50 years?

I attended the Bijou Cafe show with Gram Parsons and The Fallen Angels. I liked the GP album a bunch and the Keith connection was the hook.

The Bijou was an appropriately named jewel of a concert facility where I had witnessed great shows ranging from the likes of Toots and The Maytals,
Georgie Thorogood, David Letterman and the top-of the-heap Frankie Miller. It was railway-car shaped with the stage on the left hand wall and two
rows of tables coming off at 90 degree angles.

Gram's show was sparsely attended but I found one table with a gent who looked like he stepped out of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. This was
undoubtedly the notorious Phil Kaufman who caught my attention because of the reel to reel tape recorder he had on the table top. I was already
a taper myself having started with Nils Lofgren's Grin at my Villanova the previous year. Memory hasn't logged any conversation perhaps because
this guy did not scream "approachable". Anyway, the show was the kind that imprints on your psyche. So, of course I have long wondered what
happened to that recording. Dime A Dozen provided a shabby distant generation one years ago which I found frustrating to listen to. Luckily,
the previous evening's show in Long Island was a radio broadcast and has provide many hours of substitute enjoyment. But now, here's the Bijou show
thanks to the Amoeba discovery. No surprise there since the store has always been so great I usually tried to stay away from it.

Gram's Reprise albums are wonderfully heartbreaking to me but the mystique of his stage presence and oozing charisma was really something to behold.
Months later he would return to play his final concert at the Tower Theater for a "Byrds-Burritos Reunion".

I am very thankful that this tape has emerged and know Stones fans will appreciate the artistry that was Planet Gram.

And of course,
RIP Wilko Johnson
