But enough about that. This was a great concert (I saw it at the Hollywood Bowl), and a great album. What a lineup! Doobies, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, CSN, Springsteen at the height of his powers, Tom Petty (New guy - he only had two albums out at the time...), plus Gil Scott-Heron, Ry Cooder, and Jesse Colin Young. Chaka Khan (this was when disco still sucked) and Sweet Honey on the Rock, too..
Some great pairings here with Jackson Brown and Graham Nash doing beautiful harmonies on "The Crow On The Cradle" (30 years later, another great version by JB and David Lindley on another fantastic live album - Love Is Strange), James Taylor, Carly Simon, and Graham Nash on "The Times They Are A-Changin" and you gotta love "Stay" with Jackson, Bruce, and the E Street Band! Great versions of Runaway, Angel From Mongomery, Cathedral, You Don't Have to Cry and Captain Jim's Drunken Dream are some of the highlights.
Glad I found this on CD. Thanks Amazon. Can't get it on iTunes and the booklet brings back a lot of memories.
The artists are listed on the album cover but not the fact that they performed together during the shows to produce a number of new flavors.
The song "Power", followed by "The Times They Are A Changin'" are remarkable. A diamond in the rough, the songs are from the heart and voices are one. On "Power" James Taylor, Carly Simon, John Hall and Doobie Brothers really shine! That tune alone is worth the price of the album. James Taylor, Carly Simon, John Hall and Graham Nash deliver a raw but classic "Times They Are A Changin'".
Rather than rate the album song-by-song, perhaps it's best to rate the album alone. Yes, Bonnie Raait, Jackson Browne, Springsteen, Petty, CSN, Nicolette Larson, Poco... just too many - they were all fantastic. Of 5 stars, one disk is a 4 and the other a 5.
Also, an unusual find. I have the set on the original cassette media but one no longer plays and I tried the usual iTunes and others for years and couldn't find a replacement. I don't know when it was released on CD but the timing was right with the disaster in Japan. Perhaps it's time to raise awareness again as we do tend to become complacent until it's too late.
The only negative is the quality of the recording and mix. It's not the best but the music makes up for it.
1979 was a strange, transitional year in music. Disco was all but dead, yet it's brief success had ushered in a retreat from the expansive progressive rock that had enshrined the late 1960's and early 1970's.Read more ›

I agree, I retired 10 years ago after 30 years as an instructor and an operator at a nuke power plant. No better way to make the large quantities of electricity we need to power an economy that will support 310 million people and growing fast. Back then I thought the "no nukes" people... Read More
