Mylon LeFevre - In Concert (1970)

Thanks to Jared for pointing me in the right direction, where this fine recording is concerned. Hot live show of Mylon & Holy Smoke doing justice to his spectacular first Southern Rock album "Mylon". This registration from 1970 has a comfortable atmosphere and the songs are played with heart and soul. Great vocals, as usual, by Mylon. And a perfect sound overall. Sure, it's got Gospel, but it's excellent Southern Rock too. If you dig Mylon at all, sure nuff, you'll love this. Good heavens!

Many thanks for this Mylon Live; if I´m right with cover album, here´s Mylon with Barrey Bailey, Paul Goddard and perhaps other members of Atlanta Rhythm Sections. Beautiful staff!.

Well, I have no information on the line-up, other than Mylon calling his band Holy Smoke. Which was the band he used on his second album. Which was partially the same. But it's a great picture from roughly the time this of recording.
Has anyone listened to this yet? I think it's a treat.

This concert is from the Boston Tea Party 10/16/1970. All songs are from Mylon's first self-titled album.

Finally got a file from Megaupload but don't know what kind of file it is. Certainly not mp3. What is it? I can't open.

Got the .rar file open with something called 7 zip file

On this live stuff, sure it's not the Barry Bailey's guitar style.

To the anonymous using 7zip: open rar with 7zip and extract file to location of preference. Et voila!

In the picture is Barry Bailey, Dean Daughtery, Paul Goddard, Mylon, and someone I don't recognize, immediately to Mylon's right. I haven't heard this yet, in the process of downloading. I'm guessing this is a treasure.
