|this looks interesting, thank you for the upload.
|Haven't finished downloading, and I will try and help you with tune tutles once I do. But I can tell you right now that
d1t13 is "Paradise" (a John Prine Tune)
d2t03 is just called "Fox On The Run"
|wow - this stuff is really interesting. The MYSpace page is as well - I like the timeline.
THANKS MONTE for this upload - that other one from Ramada Inn with a young Vince was a treat too.
I am from the Louisville area, but can't place the Great American Bluegrass Hall - do you know where it was?
|Great of you to post this Monte - I really appreciate it. Here is some help with some of the songs. I may be able to figure out a few more once I have time to go back and listen to the LPs. Thanks again!
d1tr2 - East Virginia Blues
d1tr5 - Leaves That Are Green (Simon & Garfunkel cover)
d1tr6 - Slewfoot
d1tr18 - You Ain't Goin' Nowhere (Dylan cover, recorded on "Newgrass" AH-401-30)
d2tr16 - Black Mountain Rag (recorded on "Love of the Mountains" OHS-90118)
|This is great !!!! Thanks Monte !!
|THANKS! cool stuff!
somewhere I have one of those '71 sets from Renfro Valley. There's a real young Tony Rice and Sam Bush on it.
|Interesting revelation here by segovialvr. I was a Taper for about 10 years. 1973 to 1977 was my peak form. Due mostly to cost issues, I taped "over" countless recordings - but I always kept the best recordings. I have been circulating many of them here these past months. This seems to explain the 2 tracks of Black Mountain Rag in this fileset. Bands like Bluegrass Alliance often had gigs where they would grind it out, night-after-night, at "the usual" venues. Except for the Grateful Dead - and perhaps Newgrass Revival, most other bands in this time period had similar setlists each night, and often sounded very similar each night.
I must have taped over a previous night's show on my MR cassette, and the setlists lined up slightly differently. Go figure. At least this is my theory. If you listen carefully, the different nights sound identical. I taped these Boys dozens of times. Sorry about this mix-up on my end. My bad. Thanks for the heads-up and feedback from everyone.
I'm gonna plug in the corrected and additional tune titles on this info page. All you need to do is copy from here and paste into the "ba75-09-23.sbd.flac.txt" file, and you're all set. I've really enjoyed this project. I look forward to a few more in the near future.
|kymule - I have only vague and piece-meal memories of The Great Midwestern Music Hall, but I'd be happy to share them here. Kentucky was (still is?) famous for beautiful women, bluegrass music, and fast horses. During the mid 70s The Midwestern was located in an area of downtown Louisville along the banks of the Ohio River. This area of downtown was in the middle of a major upgrade and business revitalization at the time. Perhaps it was not far from the Bellvedere (spelling?). Bluegrass Alliance and J D Crowe played there countless times. J D's band was always tops! There were many other famous bands playing there. Amazing stuff. J D Crowe regularly snatched artists from The Alliance. Ricky Scagg's band, Boone Creek, had Vince Gill boucing back and forth between BC and The Alliance. Perhaps the Newgrass Revival played there often too. I remember The Revival usually played at a tiny, very intimate club named The Mason Jar, on Bardstown Road in Louisville - typically doing 3, 4, and 5-night runs that were incredible. Those amazing nights were full of jams, impressive instrumentation skills on many instruments by Sammy, long sets, and incredible improvisations. The Revival back then was the closest thing to the Grateful Dead that I ever witnessed at this time. Then, after these gigs at The Midwestern and The Mason Jar, everyone usually headed over to Harry Bickel's place and stayed up all night jamming. I get goose-bumps just thinking about this stuff.
I believe Lonnie Peerce owned a percentage of The Midwestern. It was newly renovated and/or just opened for business at this time. The dimensions of the club were unusual. It was very wide, but not very deep - except for a slightly larger area in front of the stage platform. The bar area was off to one end, near the front entrance. After Sam Bush and the boys dumped Lonnie and formed the legendary Newgrass Revival in 1970, Lonnie retained the famous Bluegrass Alliance name and rights. He also managed the band over the years. Bill Millet correctly credits Lonnie for keeping all the Alliance artists paid and fed over the years by maintaining bookings for the band - not to mention the fame they gained. Lonnie's fiddle playing fell hugely short of the extraordinary talent that this band was famous for over these years.
|The Great Midwestern was on Washington St between 1st and 2nd st. The great Midwest was the first bar I ever went in, saw Newgrass Revival on my first trip.
That was a great block for clubs back then. On Main street was a club called the Soundstage. I saw Muddy Waters and a young Stevie Ray Vaughan there.
|sweet - thanks. I know just the spot this occured.
Thanks for all the history and info.
Harry Bickel's house!! There was a large story about Harry in the local paper a little while back - had some old pictures of the guys hanging on his front porch if I recall.
Gone are the days!

|Here's a great webpage on The Festivarian Fourm that I just put together. It's a great historical snapshot of The Bluegrass Alliance. Spin-off bands include Newgrass Revival and Lazy River. I put some nice pics over there for you. Best of all, I included SBDs of their music. It's laid out nicely for you. Sweet. Enjoy. Peace.
|Nice time period for this music. Thanks a lot.
|I am a big fan of the band,especially back in the early 1970's. I actually got to see them perform with my dad when I was about 7 as I grew up in Louisville. The name of the song that first appears in this concert is called "LOOK AWAY BEYOND THE SUNSET" as it was released by The Bluegrass Alliance on the album "TALL GRASS" in 1973
