Another Dawson Sound tape, over at Wolfgangs vault. Great sound, interesting allround.

Arbitrarily listened to a couple of cuts this morning (Clarence sounded great of course). I noticed something that made me reassess who I thought was singing the "strange" high harmony I heard on the cut posted on Facebook where the Byrds backed Linda Ronstadt. At first I thought it was Roger having a really bad day. Don't think so. On the medley (cut 21) "I Wasn't Born to Follow/Chimes of Freedom" the "Chimes of Freedom" section has the same scary falsetto while Roger is singing lead. Can't be CW or Gene...gotta be York. (sorry Roger!)

rballister has time on his hands this morning. York left in September of '69. Guess the owner of that "unusual" harmony vocal is Skip.

There seems to be rather a lot of "unusual" harmonies through the concert. Perhaps the saying, "too many cooks" comes to mind...!

I would guess it was Gene, since he usually sang the high parts at this time

I think this is a really cool concert... The FBB lineup at this point was without Gram Parsons, so I guess it's Chris Hillman, Bernie Leadon, Chris Etheridge, Michael Clarke, and Sneaky Pete. Some of the harmonies you hear are probably either Bernie Leadon or Chris Hillman. I heard someone trying to hit David Crosby's high harmonies but missing the mark..

Anyway its way cool to hear Clarence playing with Chris Hillman, Sneaky Pete and all the rest. This concert (even with the jam vibe) is a rare treat.
