Weather Report: Teen Town (Live at Reading, PA – 1978)

Another gem from Dr. Fred Erskine’s video collection, via Rick Suchow.

Rick shares: “This never-before-heard version of Jaco’s “Teen Town” is musically unique and worth hearing. After the tune ends, all four band members walk to the front of the stage to thank crowd. Recorded live 1978, Reading, PA. Weather Report: Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, Jaco Pastorius, Peter Erskine.”

Credits from Peter Erskine: “My father Dr. Fred Erskine shot the Washington and Reading videos of Jaco w/ WR (1978). The sound came direct from the front-of-house mix board, engineered by Brian Risner, and my dad was using an old RCA video camera (at least one of those shows without a tripod), a heavy beast of a thing.”
