Bitter End, New York City
August 22nd – September 1st, 1969

Newsday, August 22, 1969

Watch their performance of Fats Domino’s “I’m Walkin'” filmed by David Nelson at the Bitter End, August 1969.
This was the first song Rick sang on The Adventures Of Ozzie and Harriet back in 1957.
Notice at 1:44 that Randy is playing a red Gibson bass, a switch from his usual gold Fender Precision from this period.

Although we hear pedal steel, there is no steel player on stage. The Stone Canyon Band was only a foursome at this point (Rick Nelson, Randy Meisner, Allen Kemp and Pat Shanahan).
The audio here is from Rick Nelson In Concert, recorded at the Troubadour a couple of months later in October 1969, with Tom Brumley on pedal steel.
