KYTE RECORDS SD-3821-01 1975 STEREOPHONIC
Some nights seem to be filled with more magic than others. The evening of October 23, 1975 was truly one of these nights ~ when the stage of David Lipscomb College's Alumni Auditorium came to life, once again, with Insiders. It was a very special night ~ because it was a homecoming.
I'm grateful for the opportunity of having seen Insiders evolve and progress since the first time we met in the Fall of 1970 when we were doing a show together.
Their unique blend of charisma, stage presence, and plain old knocked-out talent, has delighted and electrified audiences throughout the Southeastern United States.
Now, in 1975, Stan Gunselman, Winston Harless, Ford Holman, Janet McMahan, and Rick Poole ~ Insiders, have blended their inherent talent and ability with the confidence and seasoned maturity that only those special few ever achieve. Here, dedicated to you - their friends, are their fondest "Memories."

Editor's Note: this is truly a local and hometown record -- from the Nashville area where I purchased it -- simply because much of the audience and fans surely were friends family and acquaintances. No knock against the fellas but they weren't breaking any new ground here. The "Insiders" sing some older and more contemporary (to the time) songs and maybe even a few of their own. Not that I would know either way. It's hard to figure out exactly what they are trying to accomplish (that thing called fun, stupid! WHAT?!?!?) but the same could be said about this blog. Enjoy (if you can).
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
