Ellis Auditorium Memphis April 30th 1974 is a live recording by Steely Dan.
Like Going Mobile, the Pretzel Logic tour concert was recorded for a radio broadcast. It has been issued by the Keyhole label. This is an unofficial recording which I understand scrapes through the European Union copyright laws but wouldn’t be legal in the United States.
