July 8, 2011 marks the 35th anniversary of the historical concert featuring the second performance of Doo-Dooettes (formerly The Two Who Do Duets) along with Le Forte Four. The performances were captured on vinyl, and released as LAFMS 3/4 in 1976. From the liner notes of the record:
"On July 8th, 1976, the Doo-Dooettes and Le Forte Four (as representatives of the Los Angeles Free Music Society) gave a performance at the Brand Art Center in Glendale, California. For their portion of the event, Le Forte Four tried to play back prerecorded tapes through 44 pyramid shaped headphones. Both the tapes and headphones were specifically designed for the concert. The Doo-Dooettes played live."
On the recording, Le Forte Four consisted of Chip Chapman, Tom Potts, Joe Potts, and Rick Potts. Doo-Dooettes consisted of Harold Schroeder, Tom Recchion, Dennis Duck, Juan Gomez, and Fredrik Nilsen and Ace Farren Ford played sax on one song. Doo-Dooettes gave special thanks to Smegma, Jan Paulshus (for recording, and who incidentally recorded a recent reunion of the Doo-Doos), and Mr. Foon. Le Forte Four gave thanks to Steve Jackson, John Payne, Sean Phillips, and Bob Wallace.
HAPPY 35TH ANNIVERSARY TO EVERYONE INVOLVED!
