Steve Goodman (with John Prine) - 1973-04-07 - Bryn Mawr, PA

Steve Goodman (with John Prine)
1973-04-07 & 08
Main Point, Bryn Mawr, PA
and Philadelphia, PA 

FM Broadcast recordings (radio station masters), very good quality
Available in both Lossless (FLAC) and mp3 (320 kbps) versions

Here's more early Steve Goodman, with some excellent-sounding, but unfortunately incomplete radio show performances from 1973. And as a special bonus here, the Bryn Mawr set includes Steve performing with his good friend John Prine. They sing a couple of classic Prine songs together (Dear Abby. Paradise), and then go into an extended medley of Hank Williams songs, with each taking turns singing lead. It's wonderful to hear the two of them performing together, and obviously enjoying themselves as they do. So, more great stuff here.

I was at WXPN that afternoon when they came up and did a live radio concert for us. I helped engineer the show. One of the most treasured experiences of my time there. Philly was central to the early 70s folk revival and many of the local legends came up to the station as well as national artists as they passed through town to play at the Main Point or other venues in town.

Does anyone remember John Prine playing at the academy of music in philadelphia early April 1973? I saw him there but cant remember the date or if Steve Goodman played with him.
