Notes from Jason Wang under the YT  Video:

“I received this concert as “1972-04-11 Chicago, IL”, but it turns out to be from New Paltz, NY, 1973. I’m not sure if the date is correct – if anyone knows when Prine went to Rome, it would probably answer the question. It’s really nice to hear such a concert recording, just him and his guitar.

“This is probably the concert where the album version of Dear Abby was cut. The version from Sweet Revenge album and this concert sound identical, with the same stage banter at 43:36 – “about three months ago I was in Rome, Italy”, but has some interesting stage banter that was not included on the album: “Lyndon Johnson died; Edward G. Robinson died; J. Carrol Naish died…”

— Thanks for all your hard work, Jason. Much appreicated!
