This was the last show of the 1975 Spain tour, on 13 May, at the Teatro Monumental in Madrid. It was originally broadcast by TVE, and re-broadcast on 13 May 2006 by the TVE 50 Years Channel. The first 30 minutes were for the instrumentals of the Orchestra, without Ray. Both the orchestra and Ray were in excellent shape this night. It's best to see the entire concert (which is available through some torrents), but attractive fragments can be watched through YouTube and some other sources (see below).

Musicians: Jeff Conrad, Bob Coassin, Phil Guilbeau, Jack Evans - trumpets*; Wally Huff, Ken Tussing, Glen (Champ) Childress, Steve Davis - trombones; Andy Ennis, Clifford Solomon, Ed Pratt, James Clay - saxophones; Leroy Cooper - baritone saxophone, band leader; John Bryant - drums; Joe Harris - bass; Tony Matthews - guitar; Ernest Vantrease - keyboards. The Raelettes: Linda Sims, Dorothy Berry, Bernice Hullaby, Estella Yarbrough.

* Johnny Coles, who had been part of the European tour (cf. the Brussels concert on April 27), missed the Madrid gig because of an eye injury.
