    In another “two degrees of separation” story (I mentioned my mom lived in Newport in ’58 when the doc I wrote about was filmed), my uncle saw Stephen Stills at the Garden the night before the Bangladesh shows but couldn’t get a ticket to it. He says he watched it on closed circuit TV not inside the arena itself but an adjoining room. I was somewhat skeptical about that, but then I came across an old NYT review of the Stills show that talks about a giant closed circuit TV that I suppose could’ve been used the next day.

    We were talking about Badfinger…Pete played with George in the spotlight for a song or two at the concert of course…and the other three Badfinger guys were in the back… Joey Molland the other guitar player got really jealous of that…so Pete wrote a song to him called Take It All…a really good song to Joey trying to make him feel alright… Pete was a nice guy…probably too nice. Take a listen when you can.

      Oh so sad Joey’s ego got in the way. Just listened to the song. Why haven’t I heard this before. Excellent in so many ways. It’s right up there with their well-known tunes and maybe beyond!

    I remember the single in the charts here for a few weeks, and the album took forever to be released (legal wrangles) as did the video. I pulled it out last week off my shelf to have a look, amazing array or talent on that concert. it did draw attention to the plight too.

      Paul I’m glad you were moved to listen again. I love it as much for the witnessing of the chemistry of the musicians as the music itself. It’s like a miniature world is created on the stage. I get that same feel with The Last Waltz.
