BK for JEMS 
this is a live FM broadcast of Hall and Oates from their hometown area. there is some slight FM noise from time to time, but it''s not very loud and may not be noticable at all to the less fussy ears. I could not hear it in most of the show. the sound quality is quite good for a show of this era. there are a few commercial break interruptions in the broadcast which cut in and out of a couple of songs slightly, it's very close to the full show. the set includes songs from Abandoned Luncheonette, War Babies, one from their debut album "whole oats" and 6 from the latest at this time, featuring music from their 4th album, "Daryl Hall & John Oates". this may be the most complete version of this show to circulate yet, at least from a master tape source. I have tried to smooth out the rough edits as inconspicuously as possible, making this a "seamless' recording. it sounds like it does go through to the end of the concert, and starts where it ought to, at the beginning of it. thanks so much to ER and BK for sharing this early Hall and Oates show with me to share with you. I first heard them along with many others a couple of years later in 1978 with "don't blame it on love" and a very long slew of hits through the 1980's, but most of this stuff was new to me (in 2014!) hope you all like this early Hall and Oates show. the band is sounding fresh and vital.

  1. Most sources list this concert as December 13 or December date unknown. I recorded this concert when it happened, and my cassette says December 27. Sure wish the correct date was definitively documented somewhere.
