Thread: I Found A Watkins Glen Festival Album on Vinyl

yep- I just found a Watkins Glen festival album at a local thrift store in Boone that features "Statesboro Blues," "You Don't Love Me" and "Whipping Post",...........but don't get too excited as it is a Pickwick label album featuring cuts by all three bands played by the group King's Road. Still - this is new to me......and might be rare.

Watkins Glen
King's Road Plays The Heavy Sounds OF The Watkins Glen Concert

Pickwick SPC-3355
Side A- Truckin', Uncle John's Band, Casey Jones, Cripple Creek, & Stage Fright
Side B- The Weight, Statesboro Blues, Whipping Post, You Don't Love Me

Pickwick Records rushed out Watkins Glen with the tiny subtitle Kings Road Plays The Heavy Sounds Of The Watkins Glen Concert. The album is essentially studio musicians doing half-assed karaoke versions of the three bandsí songs with canned crowd noise book-ending each cut.
The album has no redeeming qualities whatsoever, but its comic value and its dedication to the cheap hustle make it something of a conversation piece. I have no idea what this hunk of junk is going for because nobody has been insane enough to try to sell one outside of a yard sale or a thrift store. Iíd say that if you spend more than twenty-five cents American youíve overpaid but hey, man, itís your trip. Peace.

A friend of mine bought this, gave it one listen, & into the trash can -- has nothing to do w/Watkins Glen, totally misleading cover -- I remember him saying, "& the chick has an ugly ass too"

Hahaha I remember that piece of crap! Found it at a secondhand store, threw the disc away and used the album cover as a greeting card to my brother to commemorate the 20th anniversary of our trip to Watkins Glen.
