Stills, Stephen

Stills Young Band 2

Stills Young Band light

Audience recording from the Philadelphia Spectrum on 29 June 1976, according to the book Neil Young: Zero to Sixty: a critical Biography

Actual photos from the concert can be found here: https://photosfromphilly.wordpress.com/2011/06/03/stephen-stills-firebird-neil-young-les-paul-guitar-dual-at-the-spectrum-6291976/

I read on more than one website that Neil Young walked out on Stephen Stills on this tour, with one source I read claimed after only eight gigs but this can’t be true when looking at this Neil Young site: http://www.sugarmtn.org/getshows.php?tour_key=113

“Recording is audience sourced, with pretty mediocre sound (C+ to B range, aesthetically speaking.) There are fades between some tracks, and this performance is most likely recorded from a single night’s concert.

Some copies were pressed on black, other copies were pressed on multicolored vinyl (this one). Includes both a front paper slip and a rear paper slip.” First issues were m.c. blue ones seen here. I did not find any other colors.

Matrix markings: HAR 167-A “To Ruth” and HAR 167-B “From An Old Friend”

 

This title also exists on clear mcv but with only the front insert, perhaps pointing to this variation being a later pressing.

The back insert is the main attraction in this case. The text on the left and the SODD satire has been seen before but the cartoon was new to me:
