I've only got maybe three or four Grin shows. And the band never released any live material either. The band's guitarist, another person I've heard of but have little knowledge of, was Nils Lofgren. He had gained some recognition as a guitarist at the time when Grin was formed. Lofgren formed Grin in 1968 and by 1974 the band's days were over with. According to Wikipedia, the band made four critically acclaimed LP's but just never made it big in the long run and they were let go by their record label in 1974.

Grin was really a District of Columbia area band to begin with. I've heard one show I will locate and upload soon that is a spectacular show and the best I've heard from Grin. Like I said, I only have few shows because there probably aren't too many that exist
I can understand why the band never really made it huge too. While they're good and talented musicians, they didn't always stand out as anything outstanding. They seem to be enjoyable to listen to but the music might grow a little old after a whiile of listening to it. This concert is a great example. Download it, check it out, and I bet some somgs you'll like while others you will not care for too much. And when I upload the show I called spectacular, get that one and I bet your opinion will drastically change. The band may not have been able to consitently keep the high energy shows going eag concert?, But I really don't know if that was the trouble or not?
Grin had a variety of musical styles they seemed to play. Some muscic was heavier, some was slower, some was country sounding, and some even had a Creedence Clearwater Revival type of sound to it. Some songs were funny too. I like the mixure of songs and especially some of Nil's guitar jamming in a variety of the songs
The waveform looks great for this recording and there is no clipping. In the latter part of the show, close to the ending tracks, there are a few pops in the audio. It is not from audio clipping, volume, or technical reasons like that. It is likely just an audio issue on the tpae this recording was sourced from. and it is not a bad problem either. These are not loud or annoying pops either and are short lived.
I hope you enjoy the show...
