This one is a very rare recording. It’s a show we did to open the music portion of the Kentucky Derby in 1975.
My small and talented band and my three beautiful friends and background singers had just begun our tour. “Mandy” had shot to the #1 spot and “It’s A Miracle” was moving up the chart. We were having a great time on the road, but we were broke.
I remember that I bought a Ronko Rinestone Studder that I saw being advertised on some late night show. All of us sat in one of our hotel rooms and studded the skirts that the girls wore, because I couldn’t afford to buy them fancy outfits. (Check out their skirts and you’ll see our handiwork!).
We were so excited to be on the same bill as Blood, Sweat and Tears and headliner, Roberta Flack. The crowd was very kind to us and we left the stage on a real high.
Hope you enjoy this blast from the past!
