Here’s a photo taken Dec 29, 1983 at night of the 1st Ernie November location on South Minnesota Ave where Hardee’s is now. This was the night of the No Direction record release party for our 1st album. – C.L.

Charles Luden sent me these cool photos today, thought I would share;
I shot these in 1974 in Denver at a small club named Ebbets Field. Tom Waits opened for Roger McGuinn. It was a great show. Roger’s 1st solo LP and Tom’s 2nd LP were recently released. A priceless event. – C.L.
