Syracuse 1972 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Manley Field House, Syracuse, NY; April 7, 1972. Very good soundboard or Pre-FM.
It’s been said that the show’s opening jam was inspired by the Allman Brothers (Dr John opened for them; other acts included Nighttripper and Ophan) but for the fans, it must have been a treat as Dr John previewed Iko Iko and Little Liza Jane, both of which were found on Dr John’s Gumbo, which would only be released on April 20, 1972.
Thanks to carville for sharing the show at Dime.
Thanks also to Danilo Jans for the artwork, posted at rockrarecollectionfetish.
