January 1974
Date unknown early 1974: TERRY REID at Bitter End: Terry was hiding for the last two years from Mickey Most, as was “most” of his roster of artists.After basing himself in California with the likes of David Lindley and Graham Nash, Terry returns with a new look, a new record company and a new collection of tunes. Using my limited connection at Atlantic I received two press passes for Terry Reid at The Bitter End. David Lindley was and is an amazing guitarist, anything with strings he can master,saw him with Jackson Browne at PHILHARMONIC HALL a few months ago and Terry was in great voice this night. At one point Terry dropped his slide which rolled out to my seat. After the show I picked the slide up, sought out a stage guy to return it. He said ,“Terry’s right back there”. Bingo, Terry answers the door and is most thankful. The pictures on Terry’s website from THE BITTER END gig, both on stage and backstage are mine.
