Mercury SRM-1-3712 (1978) Original US Pressing

is the sixth studio album from NRBQ, released in 1978 on Mercury Records. In keeping with the band's well-known sense of humor, the album's title is itself a bit of a joke. While it would appear the album is a live concert recording performed at the stadium, it is not; the album credits read "Recorded at Bearsville Studios, November 1977 (not at Yankee Stadium)". The packaging includes photographs of the band members in a Yankee Stadium devoid of any other visible human beings; these were taken when, as a special birthday treat for bass player and founding band member Joey Spampinato, his bandmates arranged a private visit to the ballpark. Spampinato, a Bronx native, is a lifelong Yankee fan. The album was released in two versions. Early copies included the song "Ridin' In My Car" (recorded in 1975 and released in 1977 as part of the LP ), which was subsequently omitted from the later version. allmusic 4.5/5 stars
