This is not your work-week rock-and-roll-and adios -- that'll more than likely come tomorrow morning. But this'll do. While we await a piece from Patrick Michels about some doings at Cliff Manor this afternoon, I wanted to share with the Friends of Unfair Park a gift sent my way byObserver
photographer Mark Graham, whose fine work accompaniesmy cover story
Mark, the virtual floor is yours:
Just wanted to pass on a Waylon boot I ran across. If you have not heard this you should. Prime Waylon. Info provided is wrong on the date. It's actually from Willie Nelson's Abbott Homecoming held 11/04/73 in Abbott, TX. And yes, I was there. A senior in high school but lucky enough to make that drive down I35 to see Willie, Waylon, Kinky, Billy Joe Shaver and on and on play in a field outside Abbott. It was an all-day affair and quite good from what I remember. This set from Waylon confirms it was a laid-back day with some awfully good players.
Much as I love the April '76 Tarrant County Convention Center set we posted back in June, this FM broadcast is better. As in: immortal.
