Alex Chilton - The Knitting Factory, February 13, 1997

Here is another wonderful recording to help celebrate Mr. Chilton's life of music. Thanks to Jeff Vargon we have this great recording. This is a very special show. Here is the story as told by Jeff Vargon.
"After an unexpected loss of power, the club's management announced that the second set was canceled and in spite of the grumbles of the audience, refunds were given out. I, and a handful of others, chose to remain in our seats and unexpectedly Alex came out onto the floor. By the grace of the muses one of the audience members had an acoustic guitar, and handed it to Alex on a whim. Alex began strumming,and what began as a brief four song run-through led to over an hour of amazing, and at times, almost ethereal music."
Thank you Jeff, for recording and sharing this with us. This is truly a very special recording, of a one of kind singer song writer.

THE FACES - London, Paris Theatre 02-08-1973

So, hears the situation. Apparently, this concert was recorded for the BBC, to be aired back in 1973. This however never happened. because the BBC thought they were to drunk. Hmmm, imagine that, The Faces to drunk. This is the same band that toured with a bar right on the stage. I think that was the point of their performances back then. Fast forward thirty years, and the show finally airs on BBC 6. And even that airing is supposedly by accident. You got to love this band. And damn, if the concert doesn't rock, no matter how drunk they were back then.

Set List:

1 Silicone Grown
2 Cindy Incidentally
3 Angel
4 Memphis, Tennesse
5 True Blue
6 I’d Rather Go Blind
7 You're My Girl
8 Twistin' The Night Away
9 It's All Over Now
10 Miss Judy's Farm
11 Maybe I'm Amazed
12 Three Button Hand Me Down
13 I’m Losing You
