JEFF BECK
With The Jan Hammer Group
Des Moines 1976 [Goody Speed/Pitch-adjusted Remaster, 1CD]

Live at the Iowa St Fairgrounds, Des Moines, IA; July 25, 1976. Fairly good audience recording.

Thanks to taper MarkO; bootray and goody for sharing the show at Dime.

bootray’s notes:

MarkO gave very few copies of this show only to close friends back then, and asked us to keep it to ourselves. But it still leaked out to the tape trading community. I was suprised when it showed on Dime a couple years ago, I contacted the uploader and he got it from a friend of a friend… not MarkO. His copy had some generations on it. Since it was already out there, I thought MarkO wouldn’t mind if I released my superior copy. I was lucky in the late ’80s to make a DAT digital clone from the master. Burned to CD in the late ’90s. Channel volume balanced and Phase corrected only. Here it is…

goody noted:

There turned out to be various issues with the speed/pitch of this show as it went from a rather slow/flat but steady state to the speed/pitch gradually changing along the way, but I believe I tamed it pretty well. There may be some detectable drift along the way; nothing major anymore like it originally was, however. It’s a great show with some incendiary playing by all in this short but powerful set. My thanks for the source and bootray’s remaster which I was able to improve upon in both hi-res and redbook editions for you all!

  6. I was at this show. after coming out for an encore, he just announced Fleetwood Mac won’t let me play another song, which really warmed the audience up for them.

  14. Twernt me above. I eat men’s buttholes.

    By U L E on Oct 4, 2020

  15. DD , you say tull jumped the shark after Benefit , to me Aqulung was their swan song . After that it just became The Ian Anderson look at me show . Same thing happened to Alice Cooper after he got rid of his band wit Glen Buxom and co . It became the Vince Furnier freak show . The original Alice Cooper band was kick ass awesome

    By Derrick on Oct 4, 2020

  16. I remember watchin the Alice Cooper band late night on tv in 73 . The midnight special . Billion dollar babies had just come out . That was their last good album wit Buxom and the original band . Vince had a snake on stage . Don’t know why Vince fired his band . Ego I guess . Too me Alice Cooper was always the name of the band , not the lead singer. Can you imagine Robert Plant callin himself led Zep after they broke up ?

    By Derrick on Oct 4, 2020

  17. Thick as a brick and every album after Aqulung was boring as shit . The first four was all great . My order is 1 Benefit 2 Stand Up 3 Aqulung 4 This was in that order . Benefit was the best .

    By Derrick on Oct 4, 2020

  18. DD , was that you wit the trump link ? Seems like something you’d do . Funny as shit . Is that really Trump wit out the hair piece ? I do think he wears one . Ever notice how his hair is always in place and never moves even in the wind ? What a fuckin idiot he is . Most of his staff and lots of republicans got the virus now . They is tryin to give the election to that old fuck Biden and his hi Yeller bitch running mate

    By Derrick on Oct 4, 2020

  19. The howlin wolf back door man was great . Wonder if Jim Morrison heard it before he recorded it for the doors first album

    By Derrick on Oct 4, 2020

  20. Trump indeed probably is bald as a bat , just like that pic . It’s either a wig or a bad comb over . Sort of like the 60 something executive who tries to impress his 20 something secretary.

    By HHH on Oct 4, 2020

  21. His hair never moves , even when he left the Oval Office to get on that chopper to take him to Walter Reed , even with the propeller going as he got inside . When he did that tweet video , every hair was in place . Joe Blow may have just won the election because of this buffoon. Meaning that soon it’s Kamala time . Man this country is fucked .

    By HHH on Oct 4, 2020

  22. David , derrick, I m a casual sports fan . Not as big as you guys , sad about Bob Gibson passing. He was all class as were most black athletes in the sixties and seventies. Lew Alcindor , Bill Russell, Frank Robinson etc . He spoke well just like those others , was educated. Today’s black ape athletes talk like they have a mouth full of food . Plus back then they had family values . Fathers in the home , married to one woman . Today it’s just baby mamas and baby daddy’s tattoos and hip hop rap .

    By HHH on Oct 4, 2020

  23. I heard that this bubble nba playoffs are tanking in the ratings . People are sick of this black ape lives matter crap being shoved down their throats . They have that crap painted on the courts and have it on their jerseys. All they do is talk about that gorilla Lebron James . It looks like he has a cakewalk to a so called title as every team seems to be tanking so this ape can get another so called title . Any title this year needs an asterisk.

    By HHH on Oct 4, 2020

  24. It was set up that way triple h . The commissioner wanted to finish the season so that monkey could get another championship to get that him vs Jordan goat talk goin again . It’s a fuckin farce He can’t carry Jordan’s jock

    By Derrick on Oct 4, 2020

  25. I didnt post those pics on Trump, Im not on pininterest. There was no mention about Bob Gibsons death. Fuckin Kobe when he died it was like a head of state passed. Le bron will win another ring but he will never be the GOAT

    By David Duke on Oct 4, 2020

  26. But I may have posted that pic tho’

    By David Duke on Oct 5, 2020

  27. I’m not eating Trump’s shit until he’s covid free.

    By HHH on Oct 5, 2020

  28. Eric’s will do for now.

    By HHH on Oct 5, 2020

  29. Don Jr’s tastes like monkey ass.

    By HHH on Oct 5, 2020

  30. So does his jizz, am i right?

    By Derrick on Oct 5, 2020

  31. Yeah DD , doubt Gibson gets a mention tomorrow from them talking heads

    By Derrick on Oct 5, 2020

  32. They ignored Lou Brock and Tom Seaver , sure they’ll ignore Bob Gibson too . Steven A , Cowherd , Bayless , Shannon , all them talking heads

    By Derrick on Oct 5, 2020

  33. As usual they’ll have their heads buried up Lebrons ass . He’s like a god to them assholes

    By Derrick on Oct 5, 2020

  34. Frank Robinson died last year . Also did Al Kaline , they ignored them too . Not a mention. This never would have happened 30 , 40 years ago . Baseball was still the number one sport

    By Derrick on Oct 5, 2020

  35. Correction DD , Al Kaline died earlier this year . My mistake. Geez that means we have lost Kaline , Brock , Seaver and Gibson in the last six months . That sucks man . All the great sports stars we grew up wit is passing on . Feel like a part of dies everytime another one bites the dust

    By Derrick on Oct 5, 2020

  36. Derrick, you say Hoot Gibson died? Sorry I couldn’t follow your ramblings and spaced out while reading.

    By David Duke on Oct 5, 2020

  37. They did mention Seaver and Lou Brock you assmunchers!

    If you had half a brain you’d already know about this page that covers ANYONE of any notable position in worldwide politics, sports, entertainment, religion, that might be of interest to most intelligent people.

    By Sumdh Umfuq on Oct 5, 2020

  38. Nobody on them sports debate talkin heads shows said a fuckin thing bout Seaver and Brock , I’m sure they’ll ignore Gibson too . All them bastards talk bout is that coon monkey Lebron

    By Derrick on Oct 5, 2020

  39. But Derrick, why continue to keep watching them. How are “your very own” team, the Cowbuoys getting on?

    By HHH on Oct 5, 2020

  40. Hey, check out my new band Jethro Trump! We’ll be issuing our new single “Covidlung” soon.

  41. cornick is dead asswipe. fucking toothless moron

    By David Duke on Oct 6, 2020

  42. Hey triple h , why don’t you look up the NFL standings ? It literally takes two seconds

    By Derrick on Oct 6, 2020

  43. Haven’t got that long Derrick!

    By HHH on Oct 6, 2020

  44. Them last few wasn’t me , more Dic suckin Jew bastards . The fuckin Cowboys ain’t my team no more . They is 1 and 3 and should be 0 and 4 . All coons and hardly any white players . They seem to get blacker every season. Lazy ass coons too , overpaid monkeys just pullin a paycheck

    By Derrick on Oct 6, 2020

  45. Jerruh Jones looks like he’s gonna have a stroke in his owners box wit his nitwit son . Hate the bastard after the way he treated coach Landry when he bought the team . Then he fired Jimmy Johnson after winning two Super Bowls in a row . What fuckin idiot does that shit . Was it worth it Jerruh ? You ain’t won shit since you craggy faced old fart . Just keep counting your millions Jerruh. You can fire coaches forever. The problem has always been you

    By Derrick on Oct 6, 2020

  46. RIP Eddie Van Halen 65 cancer.

    By ScarRad on Oct 7, 2020

    By Derrick on Oct 7, 2020

  51. DD , triple h , was never a huge Van Halen fan . But Eddie could sure play that guitar. He was a offspring of who came before. Page , Clapton , Iommi, Hendrix etc . He was the next wave of great guitarists . He was fuckin deciple of them dudes . Young folks today don’t even care bout playin guitar anymore. Shit there ain’t even any decent rock music anymore period

    By Derrick on Oct 7, 2020

  52. Bottom line is , we lost another legend , a great one . Whether it’s music or sports , they just keep droppin like fly’s . Tom Seaver , Lou Brock , Bob Gibson in baseball. Now Eddie Van Halen . Lost Tom Petty 3 years ago and lots of other musicians too . Man DD , I is gettin sick of this shit . We is losin all our hero’s
