Sometimes offered as “signed”, incorrect as the signatures are printed and present on all copies.
I have only ever seen these with pink labels.
From a review:
“Obviously recorded with a handheld cassette player, this bootleg recording documents a show at the legendary Mother Blues club in Dallas, Texas [incorrect, it was at Gertie’s] during their final 1974 tour [incorrect, it was in 1973], featuring the original line up. The Dolls were supporting the popular Texas band The Werewolves [incorrect, it was the other way around] and facing a hostile/apathetic crowd. The band sounds discouraged, as the audience taunts them with cries of “We want the a Werewolves!” through their show, but gamely perform their set. The very poor sound quality of the recording and the “end of the line” feel of the performance-supporting a band most listeners have never heard of-make this a hard recording to recommend. I have no idea whether this was one of the shows performed in red leather & Soviet paraphernalia but it would go a long way towards explaining the audience’s hostility; Dallas in 1974 would have been the worst possible venue for such gear. Fantastically rare, this live album has practically nothing else to offer. ”
HOTWAX rating: Vgm – sounding “sound much better than alleged.” on the official release mentioned below.
“Setlist: (one of the 4 shows) Courageous Cat Theme (*)/ Personality Crisis/ Vietnamese Baby/ Bad Girl/ Looking For A Kiss/ Great Big Kiss/ Pills/ Frankenstein/ Lone Star Queen/ Don’t Start Me Talking.
Note: These shows are often wrongly listed as having happened in 1974 as well. One of the shows is available on the “Dolls Live: Dallas ’74” bootleg LP (Smilin’ Ears 1978), except for (*). Also released as part of the “From Here to Eternity: The Live Bootleg Box Set” 3CD (Sanctuary/Castle 2006).
Arthur’s arm is still in a cast so roadie Peter Jordan continues to replace him on bass.” [http://www.fromthearchives.com/nyd/chronology.html]
This was the bootleg my school pal Walter really wanted to have after he found it on a catalog I had received from the US. Walter always liked the more on the edge stuff, while I had and have my pop taste. We, or rather he, graduated from Queen and Pink Floyd to heady stuff stuff like Patti Smith, Pere Ubu and John Cale Paris 1919 and the Velvet Underground. He also had the Boomtown Rats though and that was more my territory and most importantly, he, like me, could see the late 1970’s brilliance of Cheap Trick.
Coming to think of it, most of my deeper school friendships were anchored by a shared interest in music and here I am, 35 years later, still talking about it.
