(Dec 7, 2012): Spirit – Like a Rolling Stone

From the 1975 double album, Spirit of ’76.  This was the first LP put out after the group reformed following the departure of Ferguson and Andes.  It was the result of a show in which Spirit was supposed to open for Ten Years After, but became headliners after Ten Years After pulled out.  Spirit took the money and bought as much studio time as they could.  Mercury was interested and this double LP is the result (quickly followed by the bigger seller, Farther Along).  Thanks go out to college pal Russ Schenewerk for the recent addition of the CD to the collection.
