The comment of the trader

Nice early club gig when "wait for me" was their new single. There would be many more of those to follow, at this time H & O were becoming one of the most popular vocal-oriented pop artists of the early 80's, the band is tight, the vocals sound superb here, and in the 2 broadcasts to follow. Just in case anyone still likes these guys, and because there's alot to like if you like good pop music vocals, I'm gonna share these recordings, because Hall and Oates are an original, and at this time already showing their dynamic wide ranging vocal work. A year later, they were at the Orpheum, again in 1981. All three are very good shows, FM broadcasts. Details coming soon for the other 2 if not already available here on the dime. This is my only club gig of H & O and it's a good one. If you like their special brand of sweet harmony, you will enjoy this one. I think this is the same G.E. Smith also heard in the Saturday Night Live TV show band (probably not much later either). I thought there was a keyboard player in here too but either I didn't notice the introduction, they forgot to introduce him/her, or there was no keyboard player. I haven't listened to these shows in years, especially this one because it's on 2 different tapes, but the tape change is during a commercial break in the broadcast, so no music is cut out of this unless the broadcast itself was edited. At this time this could be a full set, there may have been 2 shows this night (not sure), they were already popular in Boston. They come from Phila. Pa. and got pretty big in Boston around this time, even bigger the next 2 years. So welcome to part 1 of my Hall and Oates Trilogy in Boston, Mass. All 3 will come to you in 3 step torrent form (master > WAV > FLAC > torrent.) and if I find one of these is released I will scream, because I am not aware of any of this material being released. I think these guys are from the Phila. Pa. area, although they got a very warm reception in Boston. This broadcast was part of 104.1 FM WBCN's "Basement Tapes" series (not on any more, I miss that), which was typically of new bands that were rising fast in popularity at the time (Elvis Costello, Magazine, U-2 and Joe Jackson are among the artists included in that), and mostly from the Paradise, now celebrating 30 years of live rock shows. If it sounds like I have seen or recorded alot of shows there, it's because I have, probably more than any other venue. I didn't see this one, never seen Hall and Oates, never seen a H & O post here in a year here. They definitely are not torrent restricted in any site's NAB that I've seen, seemingly much the contrary in Boston, letting WBCN record this for later broadcast, along with their next 2 appearances being broadcast live (not recorded) Didn't happen to the Police, who released a double CD of their 2 Boston 79 broadcasts. (it's good, too) Didn't happen to U-2, who I'm told released part or all of the 3/6/81 Paradise broadcast. It did happen to Daryl Hall and John Oates. Partly, because Boston loves these guys, and partly because they sounded very good. If you like vocal pop harmonies, these guys do it about as well as anyone. It's not "rock and roll" and I don't listen too alot of H & O but I like it. hope you do too. This music is even suitable for that "romantic mood" I'd say.This recording was on 2 different kinds of tape/bias setting (Maxell XLI and TDK SA) so there may be a slight difference in the sound, but both tapes are still in good shape and are of good quality. (pretty comparably so). Congratulations to the Paradise Club. From Nov. 1977 to today and still rockin' Boston after 30 years! if not for them Boston could be severely concert deprived right now, and that brings problems far worse than just bad (or no) concerts for a small compacted city with over half a million people in it.....

Almost any rock band you can name that was new sometime after 11/77, has played there. Do not sell this recording. Trade freely and losslessly. Deck the halls. eat the oats. (they're good for you).
