I'm a big fan of McMurtry's and had never heard (or heard of) "Dancing in Starlight". Thanks for the opportunity to hear this early performance. I'm really enjoying it.

Many thanks from the North of England for this McMurtry.Been a big fan since 1993....he's finally coming to the UK next month for the first time! Been an even bigger fan of guitarist David Grissom who guested on this recording and some of the early McMurtry cd's...been waiting 15 years to hear the two play 'live' together...and with your help that wish is now fulfilled...many,many thanks.
Diggin loads of your other music...we are thousands of miles apart but have similar musical tastes....Lang,Vaughan,BHTM,Edwards etc etc....T H A N K Y O U

- Peter.

What a great start to the year!

Camarillo Brillo said...

That's awesome Peter! Glad you found us! Thanks for the great feedback!

I wish i could tell you how unbelievably happy finding this has made me. 19 years ago i wore through a vhs tape i'd made of that show, watching it so much.

I'd (luckily) written the words down to "dancing in starlight" and had them in my pocket since i first heard the song. I never thought i'd hear it again. I once ran into mcmurtry outside a bar and had him sign my little notecard with teh words. he laughed and said that ACL was the only place that song will ever appear.

THANKS! i can't stop smiling!

Camarillo Brillo said...

That's awesome feedback...dancing in starlight is apparantly quite rare indeed...enjoy!

I have been listening to this recording for a few years and have always enjoyed it - I was under the impression that track three is called "Cold, Empty Land".
Not that I want to cause any controversy, just my few pence worth.

Great blog containing some excellent music.

Thanks, hard to say musomike...but appreciate you taking the time to write!

Hey, do you think you could repost the link to the April 1990 appearance of James McMurtry on ACL? I, too, had a VHS copy of this appearance until an idiotic roommate taped over it, much to my dismay. This was a great show because McMurtry had David Grissom on lead guitar and he gave a great performance.

Here ya go DSE...

Have been looking for this live Austin City Limits broadcast of James McMurtry for years. I'm a latecomer to this site and was very excited to finally hear this again.
But, alas, all the links I find here have expired. Would it be possible to re-up a link to this phenomenal performance? Thank you, sir!

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
