 Algunas curiosidades sobre Dave Mason:

     En la segunda mitad de los 70, Dave Mason había acumulado experiencia ante grandes audiencias a base de hincharse a dar conciertos en incansables giras, pero sus grabaciones no obtenían ventas significativas, por lo que este disco doble en vivo tenía por objeto hacer frente a ese problema. Lanzado en un momento en que los discos dobles en directo estaban de moda tras el éxito del Frampton Comes Alive, la comparación con este resultó inevitable, e incluso el empleo del “voicebox” por parte de Jim Krueger, en la guitarra del tema "Goin' Down Slow" de este disco, contibuyó a que sonara al "estilo Frampton”. Para esas alturas del partido, estaba más que demostrado que Mason contaba con una gran banda de apoyo y un excelente repertorio de standards del rock'Nroll, integrado tanto por temas propios como  por interesantes adquisiciones ("Take It To The Limit", de los Eagles, o "Gimme Some Lovin", de Spencer Davis Group) pero, a pesar de todo ello, con este disco no logró el planeado éxito comercial para su carrera. Tras esto, Mason se tomó tiempo para elaborar un álbum de estudio que permitiera lograr tal avance y, en mi opinión, el asunto quedó en tablas, más que otra cosa.
      De Dave Mason se puede mencionar que ha tocado con Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Fleetwood Mac y Mama Cass Elliot, aunque lo que a todos nos viene la memoria al escuchar su nombre es el hecho de que fuera co-fundador de Traffic, pese a que dejó el grupo poco después de la grabación de su álbum de debut, “Mr. Fantasy” (1967) y sólo apareció en la mitad de las sesiones del siguiente Lp, Traffic (1968), tras lo cual la banda se disolvió, renaciendo  sin él y con nueva orientación. Entre otros éxitos, compuso el famosísimo tema Feelin' Alright", grabado por Traffic en 1968 y versioneado por multitud de otros artistas.
    Mason fue amigo de Jimi Hendrix en los inicios de la carrera de éste, en la Inglaterra de 1966. Se dice que fue mientras Hendrix asistía a una fiesta por invitación de Dave cuando Jimi escuchó por primera vez la canción "All Along the Watchtower", de Bob Dylan, y decidieron hacer su propia versión sin dejarlo para más tarde; así que esa misma noche se grabó la canción en los Olympic Studios, al suroeste de Londres, con Mason tocando la guitarra acústica. La canción se incluyó en el álbum “Electric Ladyland”, editado en septiembre de 1968. Mason aparece también en el Lp de los Rolling Stones “Beggars Banquet” (1968) aunque sin acreditar. La conexión entre él y Rollings era Jimmy Miller, que hizo de productor para Traffic y Stones. Entre 1969 y 1970, Mason hizo una gira con Delaney and Bonnie and Friends, banda que incluía a Eric Clapton y George Harrison y junto a éste aparece en su disco de debut “All Things Must Pass” de 1970. Iba a ser el segundo guitarrista de Derek and the Dominos, pero dejó el grupo antes de que entraran a grabar.

David Thomas "Dave" Mason (born 10 May 1946) is an English musician, singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Worcester, who first found fame with the rock band Traffic.[1] In his long career, Mason has played and recorded with many of the era's most notable musicians, including Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Fleetwood Mac and Cass Elliot. Mason's best known song is "Feelin' Alright", recorded by Traffic in 1968 and covered by dozens of artists, including Joe Cocker, who had a major hit with the song in 1969. For Traffic, he also wrote "Hole in My Shoe", a kind of psychedelic satire that became a classic in its own right. "We Just Disagree", Mason's 1977 solo hit written by Jim Krueger, has become a staple of Oldies and Adult Contemporary radio playlists.

Musical career

Mason's tenure with Traffic was disjointed. He co-founded the group, but left following the recording of their debut album, Mr. Fantasy (1967), only to rejoin halfway through the sessions for their next album, Traffic (1968), after which the band broke up. Last Exit (1969), a compilation of odds and ends, features little material by Mason apart from his song "Just For You". Traffic later re-formed without Mason, although he briefly toured with the band in 1971 as captured on Welcome to the Canteen.
Mason was a friend of legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix, whose career was launched in England in 1966. Hendrix first heard the song "All Along the Watchtower", by Bob Dylan, at a party to which he was invited by Mason, and promptly decided to record his own version. That night he recorded the song at Olympic Studios, South West London, with Mason playing acoustic guitar. It was released on the Electric Ladyland album in September 1968. When the song came out as a single in October, it hit #5 on the UK Singles Chart and was a Top 40 in the U.S. Mason later recorded his own version of the song on his self-titled 1974 album, Dave Mason, with Bob Glaub on bass.
Mason appears on the Rolling Stones' 1968 album Beggars Banquet, although uncredited. Mason's connection was Jimmy Miller. Miller served as producer for the Stones and Traffic. In 1969–1970, Mason toured with Delaney and Bonnie and Friends along with Eric Clapton and George Harrison. Mason appears on George Harrison's 1970 solo set All Things Must Pass. In 1970, Dave was slated to be the second guitarist for Derek and the Dominos, but left the group before they entered the studio.
After Traffic, Mason pursued a moderately successful solo career. His first single, "Just for You" had "Little Woman" as the B-side, with Family backing him, following his production of Family's first album. His song writing and sound culminating on his 1970 album Alone Together with backing of drummer Jim Gordon.  In the early 1970s he enlisted his friend, singer-songwriter Ray Kennedy to tour and write for his next album. In the mid-late 1970s, he toured and recorded with guitarist Jim Krueger, keyboardist Mike Finnigan, bassist Gerald Johnson and drummer Rick Jaeger. The 1976 album, Certified Live is a display of Mason's songwriting, arranging, vocal and guitar talents. In 1977, Mason had his biggest hit with "We Just Disagree", written by Jim Krueger. Reaching #12 on the Billboard Hot 100, it was later successfully covered by country singer Billy Dean. Mason's 1980 single, "Save Me", was notable for featuring a duet with Michael Jackson.
For a brief period in the 1990s, Mason joined Fleetwood Mac and released the album Time with them in 1995.
In 2002, he released the DVD, Dave Mason: Live at Sunrise. It featured a live performance at the Sunrise Musical Theater in Sunrise, Florida,[7] backed by Bobby Scumaci on keyboards, Johnne Sambataro on rhythm guitar (who rejoined Mason for the DVD, after previously touring with him in 1978), Richard Campbell on bass and Greg Babcock on drums.
At one time, Mason lived in the Ojai Valley in California. As of 2005, he was performing about 100 shows a year with the Dave Mason Band across the U.S. and Canada.

Philanthropy

Mason is a proponent of music education for children. In 2005, he signed on as an official supporter of Little Kids Rock, a non-profit organization that provides free musical instruments and lessons to children in public schools throughout the U.S. He sits on the organization's board of directors as an honorary member. Mason, together with his longtime friend John Niekrash, is also involved in the program Work Vessels for Veterans(WVV), an all volunteer movement that provides veterans transitioning to civilian work with tools that have ranged from computers to boats to tractors.
