Sunday Big Note – Listening Session #17

Of all the live concerts in my music collection, today’s particular show had proved to be one of the most difficult to find because of it’s uniqueness and it’s rarity among live show collectors. It had been on my most wanted search list for a very, very long time. Of course, I’m talking about the group known as Mallard, formed in 1974 by Bill Harkleroad (Zoot Horn Rollo), Mark Boston (Rockette Morton) and Art Tripp III (Ed Marimba) after leaving Captain Beefheart‘s Magic Band. It was during Mallard’s European tour in 1976 that they performed the German TV Show ‘Rockpalast’ on September 7th, 1976.

Today’s Sunday Big Note is an taken from One Day Once, the bootleg of their September 7th, 1976 performance live for German television on the Rockpalast in front of a small audience at WDR Studio-L, Cologne, Germany. Any fan of Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band will most certainly find this show a unique treat:
