Austin 1985 [no label, 2CD]
Disc 1: Live on KUT FM-Austin, broadcast live Superbowl Sunday; January 20, 1985. Disc 2: Austin City Limits 1985. Very good to excellent FM broadcasts.
Back in 1985, when Nanci Griffith did these shows, one could say that Griffith was probably known to a small circle of fans and folk/country listeners. She had recorded three records then – There’s A Light Beyond These Woods (1978); Poet In My Window (1982) and Once In A Very Blue Moon (1984) – and it was only with Little Love Affairs (1988) and One Fair Summer Evening (1988) that she became much better known.
Even then, Griffith was already an accomplished performer [she had been playing Austin since she was 14] and her amiable personality certainly shone through… and one just can’t miss that unmistakable “thank you”.
Thanks to the person who shared these tracks on the net in 2005; and to the person who created the artwork.
