Dr. John, Gary Farr: Bottom Line, New York NY

Dan Nooger, The Village Voice, 21 February 1974

DR. JOHN AND his Revue and Gary Farr gave the Bottom Line, Allan Pepper and Stanley Sandowsky's new 450-seat cabaret-theatre, a rousing inaugural send-off last Tuesday. The club's opening night had all the trappings of a full scale event, complete with drunken revelry and Mick Jagger, Johnny and Edgar Winter, Don Kirshner, and Charles Mingus, among other celebrities mixing with the 500 or so in attendance. Stan, introducing Gary Farr, said "New-York has needed a room like this for a long time," and the club is, in fact, ideal from both a visual and auditory standpoint for performer and listener alike.
