TICKETS TORN IN HALF:October 22,1971-DR. JOHN/ WEATHER REPORT @ BEACON
Dr John and Weather Report @ Beacon. Two tickets supplied by Atco Records for playing Dr. John records on my radio show. First row with complimentary bar service.This happened to be my first real date with a new girlfriend (later to be my wife), impressive it was as we were invited to meet the band and stay for the second show but the train was awaiting for our journey home.The good Doctor was in the house and killed it for sure. I only wish the house was filled but it was sparse to say the least. Weather Report was just okay. I had expected so much more from them after hearing all the raves at the Newport Jazz Fest about this “supergroup”. Maybe it was just an off night.
