    I can only hope Randy know's how important he still is to his Fan base.
    He was an exceptional musician and seems like a beautiful human being.
    We are all blessed by his workmanship. Thanks Soda for the update on the album anniversary.

    One more thing, if you watch the 1977 DC concert CD you can tell he was nervous about TITTL. But once he did his "we's" his voice got very strong and he finished like a champ. He probably had the kind of voice that just needed to get warmed up. Only singing back up doesn't let you express your voice and only having one full song to sing in a set would be nerve racking. Practice makes perfect, oh wait he is already PERFECT!

    About a month late ()...anyway,

    Happy 15th Anniversary to the release of "Live in Dallas"!!

    I would love to know the backstory to this--was this originally recorded just for Randy's personal collection or was it intended for commercial release all along?

    Why did he wait so long to release it? He's listed as a producer with Buford Jones but there's also a credit for "reissue producer" (Joey Stec).

    Anyway, I love the radio broadcast recording. It's so exciting to hear Randy perform a live show! However it was done, I'm glad it just was.

    It was a radio broadcast that later, much later, Joey and Randy decided to release commercially.

    I much prefer the longer radio broadcast that Funk Brother #1 clued us onto - it's very spirited and free-wheeling. Gotta love Randy's wacky war cry, "I get SOOOOO excited!" during the intro to Bad Man.

    It was 35 years ago on Dec. 1st when Randy recorded this concert in Dallas! It was broadcast live at the time on a radio station. Randy really gives it his all and I would loved to have been there!

    I have tried in vain to find a picture of Nick’s Uptown circa 1982. The only ones that have turned up so far show the club after it became a restaurant.

    From a Texas Monthly article dated Oct. 1982, Nick’s Uptown is “the hippest place for live music.”

    If you can't find it, no one can. There are quite a few pictures of the Vaughn brothers (Stevie and Jimmy) at Nick's Uptown way back in the day.
