Buddy Rich Photos contributed by Mike James
From a performance at "The Prom Center", Minneapolis, Minnesota - April 1977
Due to poor publicity, I didn't find out about this concert until about 6 hours before the start time. By a stroke of luck, I was able to get tickets, and by another stroke of luck, this concert was "general seating". So, by arriving early, I got a good seat to hear, see, and shoot the photos.
This concert was three sets... something I never saw Buddy do, before or since. Wow! Being able to hear 3 sets of Buddy and the band was a real treat. I took some notes as I shot the photos, and have included them as captions, below.
Excuse the very average quality, and relatively-small size of these...
The original negatives were lost years ago, and so these are scans of some 3-inch X 2-inch "proofs", which are all that remain. Since they were black and white, the photos here are posted as GIFs.
