4.0 out of 5 stars For NRPS & Jerry Fans, 11 Aug 2013

So here we have the bare bones of the early NRPS live with Jerry putting in a fair old example of his pedal-steel guitar work. I imagine that this recording of the WEBN-FM live broadcast has remained buried since its broadcast in 1971 as there are certainly a few sonic problems with the sound. Nonetheless this is an interesting historical document for those interested in the band, Jerry, or early country rock music. No doubt anyone who considers purchasing this already has New Riders of the Purple Sage, but if you don't, get one!

The selection of tracks offers a good range of covers and Dawson originals, and certainly runs for a long time, with the band sounding tight and together. At the moment it is a bargain, so snap yourself a copy.

Packaging is a standard plastic box housed in a (superfluous) cardboard slip-case.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 8 April 2014

This review is from: Glendale Train (Audio CD)
I remember when the first NRPS record came out and every Deadhead bought it because of the 'Jerry' effect. It was a nice surprise (but not really) that the other members of the band and the songs were excellent too, with Jer providing the icing on the cake.
Well, this CD contains many of the songs from the first album, together with some covers of similar type songs. It took me a couple of plays before I could more easily distinguish who was playing what and when, but then the sheer beauty of those young voices began to take effect. In particular, John Dawsons songs began to re-awake memories of that time so long ago, when I was young too and hearing them for the first time and was struck by their wistfulness, poignancy and sheer beauty.
I listened to this CD in the car, until on one occasion (on about the 5th play) I became so 'emotional' that I had to stop as I couldn't see the road; so beware!!! The best CD I have heard in a while, but careful if playing in the car!!

the first two nrps albums are country rock at its finest and this live cd is excellent,shame it wasn't released earlier as friends of mine who have passed away would have loved to have heard it.
