Legion Of Mary: Let It Rock

written by Chuck Berry

recorded "live" at the Masonic Temple, Scranton, PA, on Saturday April 12, 1975 (late show)

Featuring The Legend, Ronnie Tutt, on drums. I've edited this down from 13 minutes to 4, and judging from the splices Ronnie apparently maintained the same spellbinding tempo for the duration. Kudos.

Payday's coming when my work is all done.

Happy New Year, Emmett! Glad to see you back at last.

Great version and edit. I know nothing about this band, but i assume from the tempo you had a suitably laid-back festive vacation. Start as you mean to continue, i suggest. Your yultide intermission mix enjoyed some heavy rotation around my place. Compliments to the chef.

Gooooood stuff...but can I ask, why edit it down?

Emmett said...

Hey there, Ace! In answer to your question, six words: nine minute Martin Fiero saxophone solo.

Ha, fair enough!

Didn't know anything about this band, but Jerry Garcia's guitar sound in the beginning is a high quality mark...
