Don Kirshner's Rock Concert 75 / US TV Soundtrack

This was the second of three appearances on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert but the last one with David.  Filmed in Santa Monica, CA on September 1, 1975 (speculated date) the broadcast date is unclear at this point.  Other acts filmed this night were Abba and headliner Janis Ian.  Tickets for these shows were handed out to local high school students for free to insure a good young enthusiastic crowd in attendance.  

The video from this show was never officially released yet has been circulated through trade circles for years.  Byron showed during this performance his enormous talent for working a crowd.  This was also one of the shows which displayed Mick wearing a cast on his right wrist due to breaking it a month earlier.
