Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen: Live From Ebbetts Field (CD)

(2017/RockBeat) 20 tracks (67:43) - digisleeve. Live from Ebbetts Field, Denver, Colorado, August 11. 1973.
Commander Cody - Live At Ebbet's Field (CD) George Frayne, known to the music world as Commander Cody, is a world-famous rock 'n roll star who had a string of hits in the '70s, several albums that hit Billboard Magazine's Top 40 and was leader of a band once named the "best live band in the world" by Billboard International. On the road in the beginning of this long journey, Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen were celebrating 1973 with a hit record Hot Rod Lincoln and album, a new bus to tour in (a 1956 Chevy Greyhound) and a new world class steel player Bobby Black, one of the greatest to ever live. On his first Commander Cody tour, Bobby was on the bus when the band hit Denver to play a club called Ebbetts Field, which was set up on the inside like a ballpark with seating up the walls, which were packed. A radio team was sent in to broadcast locally and record for posterity. This is that concert, released publicly (and legally) for the first time since it was recorded in 1973. A year later Billboard Magazine voted this band to be the "best live band in the world". You can tell here, they were on their way.

Artist description "Commander Cody"

Commander Cody

  Everybody's Doin' It

Although credited to every member of the Lost Planet Airmen, this was in fact a direct lift from the Modern Mountaineers' 1937 blue Bluebird recording of Everybody's Truckin'. The original 78 said "Not Licensed for Radio Broadcast," but of course "Totally Unsuitable for Radio Broadcast" would have been nearer the mark. Apocryphally, Paramount Records placed a sticker on Cody's 'Country Casanova' LP saying "Side 1, Track 2 not suitable for airplay," but Side 1, Track 2 was actually a gospel song, Shall We Meet. Again, apocryphally, some stations played Everybody's Doin' It, leading to a hue and cry and the end of Commander Cody on country radio. It's hard to say how much traction the Commander ever had on country radio, but the answer is probably not much. That being the case, they probably got more mileage out of telling how they were outlawed by country radio. The more interesting question is how, in the pre-internet and reissue era, did the Airmen hear this incredibly obscure track, and the answer appears to be that Dr. Demento aka Barrett Hansen played it for them. They liked it, Hansen ran a copy, and they learned it.
