This was requested by a fellow CTT member. NO Jimi Hendrix on this one, folks. But as Mitch Mitchell is on drums, these two shows might be of interest to some. Hence I thought I should up them here on CTT.

We have two different shows in this folder (I figured that whoever is gonna grab any Ramatam shows will grab them both anyway)...

First show is from the Academy of Music, New York, October 1st 1972.
The other one is from Gaelic Park, N.Y. July 8th 1972.
Both are audience recordings and "collectors only"...
here are the text files:

Here is another rare RAMATAM show: live at Gaelic Park, New York.
Has some slight volume drop on the left
channel for a moment. Quality is OK, but nothing to rave about.
But as Ramatam shows seem to be ectremely rare, everyone interested
in them will surely love this. The band has a hard time tuning up
at this open air event, as you can hear on some of the tracks where
they are OUT of tune completely.

Mike Pinera - guitar, vocals
April Lawton - guitar
Tommy Sullivan - keys
Mitch Mitchell - drums
??? - bass

I have always thought it odd/interesting that both Mitch and Billy employed Female guitarist after working with Jimi. Now, who has some Nitrofunction? They must have Gigged right? all I`ve ever seen is the album, never anything live...Anybody? Whoops, (almost forgot)Thanks for these Ramatam recordings. I had the record back in the Day, no wonder I never got a hit when searching, always thought it was RamaDam! Doh?!?

thanx for upping these... I had the lps for many years and had found the academy of music show in a lossy format somewhere, but this is a welcome upgrade and addition

This looks really cool.
I have both Ramatam albums and would love to hear them live.
A friend saw them on a festival bill @ the Poconos back then and said the place erupted when Mitch was announced.
Thanks,but looks like 0 seeds :(

Any chance of getting a reseed on this? I'm a new member, and I LOVE this band. Thanks, Doug

i saw Mike Pinera play (lead guitar) in Alice Cooper's band @ the Greek Theatre, Los Angeles. he was fantastic, but came across as immense egotistical ass.

was waaaay into Ramatam just after Jimi died. i still have both their vinyl LPs. April Lawton was also and amazing illustrator/artist.
