Hi Chris!

Well, that's interesting, I never heard of an Oklahoma recording. A few other recordings that circulate are some 1971/1972 soundboard (?) recordings. Some lists refer to it as being from Austin 1971 and Dallas 1972. While it's probably the following:
1. Trapeze - Texas Hall, Arlington, TX 1971 (about 40 minutes)
2. Trapeze - Majestic Theatre, Dallas, TX 1972 (about 70 minutes)
Both recordings have good quality.

Appearently you're missing out on some songtitles on your recording. Well, Trapeze played a couple of songs during the 1971 tour that never really made it onto LP. There are
Do You Wanna Stay, Bad Kid From School and Catching Up On You. Maybe this helps!

cheers,

- Fedor

Fedor, you are an amazing archivist! Now, I don't suppose you actually have any of these songs do you?

"Kickin' Down The Old Town Door" sounds very likely to be the name of the last track as Glenn clearly mentions it...the other titles you listed Fedor, don't sound like anything that's in the lyrics in the other ones. The sound is a little muffled, so you can't really hear the choruses too good although Mel's guitar and other vocal parts sound ok considering it's over 30 years old!!

The recording was made by Jim Nay, taken from the side of the stage on a Teac reel-to-reel recorder. He was a member of a band called The Preachers, who supported Trapeze at the show!

I need to give a big "thank you" to Mark Rodriquez from southern California for sharing the Norman, Oklahoma show with us. I met Mark at the 3 Voices show at the Coach House back in June of this year. I traded him the photos I took of Glenn during the show for a cassette copy of this Trapeze concert. If I remember correctly, Mark is a friend of Jim Nay who recorded the show back in '71.
I passed along copies to a couple "ghcp" for help in deciphering any lyrics and a copy to David in hopes of it getting to Glenn and seeing if he had any comments on the unknown tracks.

Well, thanks David and Chip. Great new find. It's not a bad thing to find people with obscure Trapeze recordings and who are prepared to swap it for a few great pictures! Thanks in the name of TCP. (Trapeze crazy people)

Is the date of show October something 1971?
I have October 22 as being Oklahoma City in the Tourography.

cheers,

- Fedor

Fedor, I don't know of the month this took place. The artwork that came with the tape only said "1971".

Chip, You are correct in your info here. I sat across the table from Mark. I also traded some pics that I took at the Coach House show for a copy of the Blue Onion boot. BTW, I took my copy and transferred it to cd through my BBS Sonic Maximizer and it sounds a bit better...not too bad. It is definitely hard to figure out titles/lyrics though!

Musicnracin,
Wow...we had to have at least said something to each other. I was sitting right behind Mark at the next table, closer to the center of the stage.

It should be required that we all wear GHPG.NET and GH.com shirts so we can meet each other

I just got hold of this boot today,and didn't recognise those mysterious songs.

What would I do without the internet? One quick search and I've found the answers!

Cheers guys!

Although the sound quality is a bit rough, this is an excellent boot.

Has anyone put together any artwork for it ?
