Comments by brad372:
In listening to the show, there's good news and bad news.
Bad news is almost none of this is from the Winterland show and one of the tracks probably shouldn't be posted. The good news is that some of the tracks (2 - 5) are pretty rare.
Corrected set list is as follows:
1.Spunk Rock (from the 1999 Party Tour CD, recorded Chicago, April, 1974)
2.Intro (Berkeley, CA 4-74?)
3.Spunk Rock (Berkeley, CA 4-74?)
4.Talk (Berkeley, CA 4-74?)
5.Blown Away (Berkeley, CA 4-74?)
6.Jam (Winterland 4-5-75)
7.American Mother (Hollywood 4-74)
Tracks 5 and 7 are Help Yourself songs sung by Malcolm
 
Just found the correct dates and locations for these tracks:
Tracks 2 - 5, Pauley Ballroon, UC Berkeley, March 10, 1974 (Malcolm Morley and Ken Whaley were with the group and it was the only year they played Help Yourself songs). The comment from Deke asking if anyone knew where John Cipollina lived likely makes this the Berkely show as it was the only Bay Area show on the tour.
Track 7 (American Mother) is from the Whiskey Au Go Go March 8, 1974


Five tracks (American Mother, 7171 551, A Hard Way to Live, Romain, Bananas) from the Whisky a Go Go, March 12th, 1974 show have been officially released, November 2007, on the Esoteric Recordings extended remaster of Rhinos, Winos & Lunatics, and can be ordered from Esoteric Recordings.

Live In California


This is mentioned in the sleeve notes to the Ptolemaic Terrascope #29 cover CD (published Nov 2000):
"And finally, once again with thanks to Ron Sanchez, we are humbled to [be] able to bring you a stunning out-take from the forthcoming Mod Lang album, 'MAN Live in California'. And here are THE MANBAND live at The Savoy Tivoli in 1976 with JOHN CIPOLLINA guesting, winding up the CD with 'Bananas' (including cunningly-disguised power failure)."
(The other Ron Sanchez-supplied track on this CD is Raven's 'Unvicious Circle', from The Keystone, Berkeley in 1976.)
As far as I know, sadly, the album hasn't appeared yet.

SUPERB UNCIRCULATED SOUNDBOARD FROM MASTER

Master reel to reel > equalizer > cd > eac > wav > flac

This is a little gift for everybody. The performance is awesome, the sound quality too. Beside this complete version from master is never circulated, don't even know if the complete audience tape of this show is circulated, normally only two songs with Cipollina from this show were traded, and, erroneusly, everybody was thinking that John was playing in only 2 songs in this show, when, actually, he's playing in four songs. - Fabio Nosotti


This show has been officially released, November 2005, by the band themselves, and can be ordered from www.mickyjones.co.uk. Proceeds from the sale of this album will be used to fund studio time to record a new Man CD.
