nice one Jenney
those two july 1974 concerts do not appear on Wayne's 1974 page at:-
http://www.lightfoot.ca/1974.htm
but both the 75 and 76 ones do on the later pages for those two years
It's not the first time I have heard of a 1974 concert not on Wayne's list: somewhere around here I have a cassette tape copy made for me by a kindly keen UK fan of the original tape that she made at London's Royal Albert Hall in I think June 1974, which is much the same set as the aborted 1974 Massey Hall bootleg
I was miffed when I heard about that London concert because since early 1970 I had been religiously poring over the Daily Telegraph each week in order to to find out (in those pre internet days) when Gordon would be in the UK, but I only found adverts for the June 1972 and May 1981 RAH concerts and therefore completely missed the 1974 one.
I have asked Wayne where he got his tour listings from and he replied that they came from the EMP office but their records only went back to 1974.
I think I read elsewhere though that Gord has a shelf at home with full details including the setlists of every concert he has performed and nowadays certainly Barry Keane has the job while on tour of transcribing a hand written setlist made by Chuck into a master record book
It is something of a mystery where Wayne gets his info nowadays as he obviously misses a fairly large proportion and I caught him out once when his setlist was obviously taken from one of our own corfid postings as it contained a sequence error that the corfid poster later admitted to making!
I am going to try to make the artwork for the rear CD jewel case insert for the 1974 red rocks concert (if I can refind the setlist that is)
