Notes: Bought this one on eBay, the seller faithfully reporting that it as lo gen (which I'm very happy to accept).

Transferred by direct wire from VHS to DVD recorder, then recompiled using Ulead Movie Factory.

It’s recorded from stage leftnot too far back in the crowd.  It's quite wobbly and the video is very bright, tending towards bleaching (so fairly typical hand VHS for the time).  But the sound is very good.

War Memorial Auditorium

"Mason B. Taylor was a taper from Chicago that recorded concerts by many bands in the Chicagoland area and on Dead tours. He used a Nakamichi 550 with Nakamichi 300 mics with shotgun capsules for most of his earlier recordings. In later years he used Sony D-5 and Sony D-3 cassette recorders with Nakamichi 300 mics.

Mason captured spectacular musical moments and loved to share them with his closest friends. In honor of Mason and all the love he put into his recordings we are now able to share these moments with those who can appreciate them most.

As the shows get uploaded we would love for you to share your stories about the epic times the music evokes so we can all dial back into that moment when the magic was happening.

Thanks to Mason’s family and his Chicago and Cleveland friends for opening up Mason’s Jar…"

[jamroom notes] This show was originally uploaded by blacklarbot and I only

[lamplight notes] THIS IS AWESOME!! I was at this show, and it was great! BEDLAM
was great opening act, and I had seen them earlier that year at COBO HALL as
well. It was strange because the main overhead lights were on with NO COLOR
LIGHT SHOW, because the sound system buzzed like millions of bees when they
tried to use the light show. When they turned those off, and used only the
overhead Field house lights, NO BUZZ.. but it was harsh with all the light.. It
was February 23, 1974 at Bowen Field House.. Thanks for sharing this show!! I
REALLY APPRECIATE your work to get this out!!!

[ notes, courtesy of Rob Dwyer] A mostly complete, but fair
quality (at best) audience recording. A thick layer of tape hiss sits atop an
already thin sounding amateur recording from the ’74 U.S. tour. I’d take this
one over the West Palm Beach only because (1) it’s much more complete and (2) it
doesn’t have an annoying phasing problem. But along with the Alexandra Palace
’73 tape, this tape IS a contender for worst sounding live tape for the SBS

The usual encore of “Embryo” / “Children Of The Grave” is missing here, either
because the band didn’t perform it OR the taper simply didn’t capture it.

This tape often gets listed as ‘Pease Auditorium’ or ‘Rynearson Stadium’ in
Ypsilanti, MI on April 20th, 1974, but none of this info is correct. I spoke
with Ron Reed at Pease Auditorium, who provided me the correct venue and date –
Bowen Field House on February 23rd, 1974.

draftervoi's original notes:
Commercials are tracked for easy elimination by those who don't find 'em of any interest, but I'll point out the Gary U.S. Bonds beer commercial is an imitation of a Bruce Springsteen production, all the way down to invoking a river in the lyrics.

Here in the Bay Area, Kihn got airplay from his very first single ("All The Right Reasons") and until just a few months ago was a popular disc jockey on a Bay Area radio station. He recently got control of his Beserkley catalog and has issued remastered tracks on Itunes.

I've included scans of the cue sheet and a disc label.
Cue sheet says host deejay is Dick Sheppard, track 01 says it's Carter Alan.

Many thanks to draftervoi for all his efforts and providing this show through his Voodoo Wagon blog.

Various Artists
live at
The Biltmore Estate
Asheville, North Carolina USA
December 18, 2009
National Public Radio/
WCRB HD-FM Boston broadcast
December 24, 2011

A Carolina Christmas
from the Biltmore Estate with Kathy Mattea;
Appalachian folk traditions, African-American spirituals, Celtic jigs, and more from America’s largest private home, The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.

"A Carolina Christmas, With Kathy Mattea
December 18, 2009 - Direct from the largest room in the largest private home in the country, WDAV and NPR present "A Carolina Christmas From Biltmore Estate, With Kathy Mattea" — a new special featuring classic and contemporary holiday songs.

The tradition of Christmas music at Biltmore Estate goes back to 1895, when on Christmas Eve, George Washington Vanderbilt officially opened his Asheville, N.C., vacation home — a sprawling French chateau surrounded by 8,000 acres of beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Grammy Award-winning singer Kathy Mattea and her band perform on a temporary stage set up in the Biltmore Banquet Hall beneath a 70-foot ceiling, surrounded by ancient tapestries and suits of armor, in front of a triple fireplace 30 feet across. With them, the choir VOX and the Celtic group The Beggar Boys perform new arrangements of songs from her two Christmas CDs, "Good News" and "Joy for Christmas Day". There are also traditional carols and up-tempo gospel tunes on the program, with guest singers Abigail Haynes Lennox and Catrina Pegues.

The show was recorded in front of a live audience with Jennifer Foster, midday host at Classical Public Radio 89.9 WDAV in Davidson, N.C., as emcee. Mattea says she's usually touring leading up to Christmas, and that the number of seasonal songs she performs each year has been gradually growing, with many of the well-known carols she's recorded arranged by her guitarist, Bill Cooley.

"A Carolina Christmas" mixes familiar Christmas carols like "Go Tell It on the Mountain" and "I Saw Three Ships" with more recent holiday songs such as "Mary Did You Know?," "Good News," "Unto Us a Child Is Born" and "Straw Against the Chill." VOX conductor David Tang has provided new choral arrangements, accompanied by the fiddles, cello, guitar and pennywhistles of The Beggar Boys.

Mattea's band includes Bill Cooley on guitars, bassist Rick Blackwell and percussionist Jim Brock. Although she got her start in Nashville, and is often identified as a country singer, Mattea says she doesn't like to be pigeonholed into any one genre. She's been interested in Celtic folk music for many years, and during the concert played an Irish whistle on a song or two, joining Michael Albert of the Beggar Boys.

The concert comes to you from the magnificent Banquet Hall of Biltmore Estate, America’s largest private home, built by George Vanderbilt more than 100 years ago. First opened to friends on Christmas Eve 1895, this French Renaissance chateau is a veritable museum of original art, 16th-century tapestries, and priceless antiques. It is open to the public for tours – but very few people in the last 90 years have had the privilege of hearing music performed in that grand hall."
