Kenny Rogers & The First Edition - LIVE Vegas '72


Kenny Rogers & The First Edition - LIVE Vegas '72


Presented here, by Maplewood Records, for the first time ever is a live album that was recorded over three nights at the Las Vegas Hilton in 1972. The lineup for the First Edition during this recording included newcomers Gene Lorenzo on Hammond organ and Jimmy Hassell on guitar/backing vocals replacing the departed Mike Settle.
The record was produced by Jim Callon, founding member of the Glass Family, in the year after the concert recordings. It was cut from several nights and meant to showcase the band’s live acumen, which was a tight hard rocking machine. It delivers. Long buried in Jim’s garage, you will hear hot versions of such notable numbers as King of Rock n’ Roll, Tell It All, Take This Hammer, and their biggest hit Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)
When listening to this record, it’s easy to imagine yourself in a smoky nightclub in the Las Vegas Hilton, don’t you think? Maybe having a cocktail with your old lady after an afternoon of hitting the tables? Give it a listen and see where it takes you.
