I know Johnny recorded the Brothers' performance at Watkins Glen. He remembers the tapes being in Macon but doesn't recall them ever doing anything with the recordings. I'd like to know more about this album myself!

I have a copy of this album. I bought it in a little record store in Ft. Lauderdale in 1974.
to be kind, the sound is terrible. Very distorted and its mono. It may be just a plug from a monitor cord going to the soundboard or P.A. system , I was overjoyed when I bought it and disappointed afterwards. The songs are short selections from the show and the end song on each side is cut.

I have a copy, also, with a different cover. I'd rate the sound about a C+. Better than some audience recordings I've heard, but definitely not a sound board.

Hmm! I wonder if this will be a future archive release

I have this album, and the quality is terrible, even by '73 standards. I haven't listen to it in decades and can't recall the credits. I believe I found it in an east Villiage record shop back when. I was at this concert. My buddies and I went to see led Zepplin at MSG, and then drove up to Watkins Glen. The Dead opened the concert, then the Band, in which it started to thunder and rain during their set. Garth Hudson the keyboard player stayed at his keyboard (or had a mini plugged in off under shelter, I couldn't see)) and just played some stuff till it subsided..The sound in general was not good.. But the album is cool as an historic archive. I'll never listen to it, but i wouldn't want to part with it.
Thinking about that now..there are hundreds of albums I have that I will most likely never listen to again

"Come And Go Blues" from "Wipe The Windows, Check The Oil, Dollar Of Gas"
was recorded at Watkins Glen so i guess the rest of the recordings are in the vaults.
It's possible it's gonna be considered for release (Archive Release or "regular") but maybe
legal matters and other red tape prevents it from being released. Maybe it's owned by
Capricorn? A release would make sense because of the historic importance of this concert
which was the biggest of all times for many years (and maybe still is...). The Band released their Watkin Glen performance a couple of years ago too. But on the other hand i think there will be better sounding soundboards from that era to be considered for release.

I had a bootleg copy of the event that was just awful and gave it away. I'm sure it wasn't the work of Johnny Sandlin in any way, shape or form.

I thought I read a quote from Dickey sometime ago that said the GD roadies took the tapes and destroyed them
