Today's FRIDAY WITH WARREN feature is a fantastic live performance given on June 20, 1976, at The Main Point in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. The show closely follows the release of his self-titled major-label debut. Anyone who's read I'LL SLEEP WHEN I'M DEAD: The Dirty Life and Times of Warren Zevon, penned by Zevon's ex-wife, Crystal, will have some context of the state of Warren's life at this point in time, and in this performance it shows like the tiny hairline cracks in the finest porcelain.
The Internet Archive is a fantastic online resource essentially devoted to the preservation and dissemination of culturally-relevant media. The materials on the site are either in the public domain or have been made available by the respective artists on the condition that no profits are made.
