A very characteristic pair of concerts of Roger as a solo artist. Although I have always preferred him as a rock artist working in a group format, his recording career seemed practically over at this point and so he went back to his roots as a folk singer for much of the 80s, developing a concert style that he still uses today. It's nice to hear the variety of different songs he wrote or covered during this period. His attitude is very professional and his stage persona relaxed and in control. I can easily understand why this almost 70-year-old man can still draw people to listen to music made popular almost 50 years ago. For McGuinn fans, this post is a real treat. Thanks yet again.

Hi Rockingbyrd & Byrdmaniax
How are you? I hope you are doing well. I came across this show on DIME and didn't know if you had heard it or had it in your collection. It is Roger McGuinn & Band at the Roxy from May 1975. Gene Clark & David Crosby are on the encore of Eight Miles High:
