Released: 2nd Mar 2012


a solo live recording from new york on 21st august 1971 whilst newman was riding high on acclaim from ‘12 songs’.

whilst many of his singer-songwriter contemporaries adhered to the conventions of this emerging genre with confessional lovelorn tales, newman’s compositions were marked by the satirical & political nature of his first-person character sketches, which established the narrative direction of much of his future output. this was captured by the radio station wplj at a stripped back performances punctuated with high vocal points.
