VARIOUS
The Great ’60s Ball 1986 [no label, 3CD]

Live at The Saint (formerly Fillmore East), New York City, NY; May 29, 1986. Very good to excellent soundboard (Jerry Moore’s copy).

Thanks to Rob Berger for sharing these tracks at Lossless Legs.

This is what Elizabeth Mehren wrote of the show at the Los Angeles Times:

Mesmerized in front of huge screens flashing film clips of Woodstock, the Vietnam War, J.F.K.’s White House and Dean Rusk’s State Department, they wore headbands (not the kind from Jane Fonda’s Workout), miniskirts, T-shirts, non-designer jeans and Give Peace a Chance buttons. Many wore tie-dyed shirts or pants, a phenomenon remarkable mainly because they had purchased these garments, not whipped them up in the bathtub. On the other hand, many of these nouveau tie-dyed creatures were barely out of diapers when their 1960s ancestors were ruining sinks with packages of neon-hued coloring agents…

[A] “family reunion” was what the Rev. Jesse Jackson likened the evening to. Arriving with all the fanfare and crowd adulation of a celebrated rock star, the former presidential candidate greeted old pal Hoffman with warm embraces and a salute to the virtues of “friendship born out of struggle.” Looking back on that era, “it was a mixture of sweat and blood that made things happen,” Jackson said. Now, he said, “our challenge is to put on this generation an agenda of substance”…

Moments earlier, a thousand or so people had been gyrating while Sainte-Marie sang in a laser-lit, planetarium-roofed dance area. Country Joe McDonald was preparing to perform, and after that, the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir played “Blowin’ in the Wind” with Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary. The Chambers Brothers had appeared, and Stokely Carmichael - now known as Kwame Ture - was in the audience. Sometime after 1:30 in the morning, Yoko Ono floated in and mingled with the crowd. Did it feel like the ’60s? Sainte-Marie smiled.

Rob Berger’s notes:

Sound check is more complete than circulating sources, unsure as to what the original master was recorded on… As per Jerry Moore (written on cassette with marker): “The Saint, as you may know, once was the Fillmore East which does make this somehow appropriate. It’s now mostly a gay disco, though they have a hetero night.”

THE WHO - PARIS 1972

THE WHO
Paris 1972 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Fete De’l Humanite, Paris, France; September 9, 1972. A fair to good French radio broadcast; some hiss.

Here’s a classic Who show from way back. Unfortunately, it’s not a complete show though it’s probably a complete broadcast. Thanks to Arcorman and to TUFF_GONG for sharing the show on the net. For those who found the sound less than satisfactory, someone commented: “This [is] what French radio sounded like in the ’70s!”

Arcorman noted: “I got this tape in a trade in the ’80s or early ’90s and I have not edited/remastered anything. This torrent is dedicated to my friends at Long Live Rock@Facebook!”

The following are some comments at thewholive.net:

I am just right in front of the scene, slightly on the side of Pete! The weather is not that good but it doesnt rain (at least not yet!).

One plunges in the past with “I Can’t Explain” which resounds agreeably to my ears. The Les Paul guitar of Pete circles in any direction. Energetic “Summertime Blues” follows. Then, Entwistle approaches the microphone to sing “My Wife”. Immense crowd really starts to be excited. Who machine is definitively launched, and the titles goes at a tremendous speed: “Baba O’Riley, Behind Blue Eyes, Bargain, Won’t Get Fooled Again, Magic Bus, The Relay, Pinball Wizard, See Me Feel Me, My Generation, Naked Eye, Long Live Rock’n'roll”… but all of a sudden, the feast of humanity is in the dark.

No electricity. And it is in an indescribable environment which everyone rises behind me to listen to Pete Townshend who announce in a speaking pipe that The Who will return on stage as soon as the electricity came back. But after 10 minutes the festival was without lights. Then rain started to fall. The festival was definitively finished, but on that special evening, I saw The Who in a dazzling form and few more songs would have filled me.

For the “small history” I’ve read in a French magazine (Maxipop) that during all the concert, a bearded Eric Clapton was on the right side of the stage, invited by Pete.

All the concert has been filmed. I remember that two cameramans were on the left and right side of the stage. All the concerts was organised by Radio TéléLuxembourg (RTL). - Olivier Coiffard

The “open air” concert in Paris was in fact not organized by RTL (although there was a RTL backdrop behind the band). The occasion was a two day “fête” organized by “L’Humanité” which is the daily paper of the Parti Communiste Français. It took place in “La Courneuve” a town in the Paris suburbs.

“La Fête de l’Humanité” is a real institution in France and takes place early September. It has concerts, rock but also everything else, shows, and political debates.

I was present at that Who concert (had travelled from Brittany with the other members of my band to attend) and I thought the concert was brilliant. Everybody loved that concert. Very exciting. - Hugues

DAVID BOWIE - LOS ANGELES 1974

January 12, 2013 – 4:49 am

DAVID BOWIE
Los Angeles 1974 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Universal Amphitheater, Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA; September 5, 1974. Excellent Pre-live master (?).

Here’s a curtain raiser to David Bowie’s new album, The Next Day, scheduled for early March 2013 release.

Thanks to steve23yh for sharing this show at the Mind-Warp Pavilion.

This is what steve23yh noted:

Second up for Christmas from Hunky Geordie, and this one’s really special. I don’t normally do all the hyperbole in torrent titles and so on: usually just let the music speak for itself - but in short, this is the best sound I’ve come across on ANY Bowie bootleg.

Two tapes in Andre’s box of goodies - one marked LA 2-9-74, the other 5-9-74. Immediately apparent that they were both from the 5-9-74 gig. Both labelled “master” - but I think that owes more to the stickers that used to come with TDK tapes!

But after listening for a quarter of an hour or so, I started bouncing all over the room, because it became clear that this one’s very very special. Two reasons I believe it’s a pre-FM recording:

1. 10:38 of the animal noise introduction. Never heard any of this before, and basically it’s cats and dogs, with street noises and guitars being tuned/tested. No two ways about it, no FM station would play this without constant DJ chatter and station idents; and

2. The sound is just brilliant. I’ve got a silver of Duke Of LA, and thought it 10/10 quality, but without the FM compression the scales just lift from one’s eyes. It’s live album quality, no messing about.

There’s a quirk that the start of All The Young Dudes is still missing - perhaps it was cut from the master for bad language? Either way, no problem. Couple of “sneeze and you miss them” tape flutters on one channel later on. No problem.

You may think you’ve got a great quality recording of this concert. Not till now you haven’t!

Meanwhile, Maarten commented at the MWP site:

This gig was never broadcast on the radio, so there are no pre-FM or FM recordings. As far as I know all recordings come from the same tape that was discovered in the early ’90s. As far as I know the history of this on bootleg was that the first version was on bootleg vinyl (Strange Fascination). The first CCD version, also called Strange Fascination was then taken from vinyl. (The Duke of LA is a copy of that version.)

A later CD version, confusingly also called Strange Fascination was then taken from the master (or at least not from the vinyl boot). This contains the 10-minute intro and better sound quality than the other versions. This version was then copied for a host of other bootleg CDs (Bowie 1974, Wealth and Authority and A Portrait In Flesh).

I just compared It’s Gonna Be Me from your version to one of the silver boots with the complete version and it sounds as if what you have came from a tape of the cd - some added hiss, receded highs and some extra flutter.

So not to take anything away from all the hard work you have put in uploading all your great tapes - but there are better versions of this one around. The good news for you is of course that if you like this recording - there’s an even better version to grab!

To which steve23yh replied:

Have now heard back from Andre: It’s not off a CD steve was told it’s was off the master paid a lot of money for it. Great show I only played it a few times.

So the lineage is effectively confirmed as being parallel to the CD release, rather than sourced from the CD.

Lineage:
Pre-live master (?) > TDK SF90 tapes > JVC PC-X95 tape deck > hard wire > Goldwave for track splits > FLAC 4
The little jump before “stars in his face” in All The Young Dudes is a tiny gap in the tape.
Edit between It’s Gonna Be Me and Space Oddity, crowd noise only.

THE CLASH
London 1978 [no label, 1CD]

Live at The Lyceum, London, UK; December 28, 1978. Very good to excellent soundboard.

Thanks to j-blokhed for this recording; and to theface07 who shared this at Dime in 2006.

theface07 notes:

I’d like to begin by thanking j-blokhed for this recording. Here is an amazing Clash show from late ‘78. This was a great period for the band who are in fine form and are complemented here by an excellent soundboard source. I decided to remaster this recording since I liked the performance so much and wanted to hear it in as high quality as possible. For the remastering, I applied virtually the same edits to all tracks. A couple of tracks were slightly different in frequency response and were adjusted accordingly.

There were also a couple of drop-outs which I corrected (as good as possible). No noise reduction of any kind has been used here. A low amount of hiss is present after equalizing but not enough to be a distraction or even heard at most levels. The equalization used is light in general as the recording only needed a cut in a few resonating frequencies and a slight boost in some higher frequencies. I hope you like what I’ve done and consider this an improvement over the original source.

Original torrent info:

Here’s another SBD - and one of my favorites. The Clash played three shows around New Year’s 1979 that were recorded for possible use in the film Rude Boy. The dates were Dec 28-89, 1978, and Jan 3, 1979.

The first of these shows to fall into collector’s hands was a very good audience recording released first on LP, and then on CD, as “Sort It Out”. This is NOT that show. The exact dates of these recordings has been in question, but I believe that “Sort It Out” (also released as “USA 1979″ [sic] as well as other, later, titles) is in fact Jan 3, 1979. I think that this recording is Dec 28, 1978.

This tape fell into my hands indirectly from an inside source (KV), and was probably 2nd-3rd gen when recorded to CD-R. It has since spread throughout collector’s circles, and the artwork included here is strictly homemade “fan club”.

This is one of the very best.

BURT BACHARACH - TOKYO 2012

BURT BACHARACH
Tokyo 2012 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Tokyo Jazz Festival 2012, International Forum Hall A, Tokyo, Japan; September 8, 2012. Excellent FM broadcast.

When Hal David (91) passed away on September 1, 2012, Burt Bacharach dedicated his performance at the Tokyo Jazz Festival to his former songwriting partner. Bacharach had always relied on other singers to make the songs come alive but over the years, the David-Bacharach catalogue has come to stand for creative songwriting. And to some, the songs themselves are a form of comfort food. So, sit back and soak up the magic.

FREE
Live And Rehearsals At Far East [Gypsy Eye 081, 1CD]

Live at the Korakuen Stadium, Tokyo, Japan; July 22, 1972. Rehearsals in King Studios, Tokyo, July 1972. Very good to excellent soundboard.

Thanks to the person who shared this on the net in 2006.

Bassist Andy Fraser left the band in mid-1972 due to Paul Kossoff’s unreliability in being able to perform at shows or even showing up. The remaining members recruited Japanese bass player Tetsu Yamauchi and keyboardist John “Rabbit” Bundrick, who had worked with Kossoff and Kirke during Free’s initial split, recording Kossoff, Kirke, Tetsu and Rabbit and what would be Free’s final album, Heartbreaker. Free disbanded in early 1973. - wikipedia

gsparaco commented at collectorsmusicreviews.com:

For a band on their last legs they give a mesmerizing performance and come close to upstaging the headliners (ELP)… Free get their attention with “Seven Angels.”  This song was freshly written and wouldn’t be available until the following year’s LP Heartbreaker. Full of drama, this is one of the best songs of the entire set.  Rabbit Bundrick takes the vocals for his own song “Unseen Love” and tells the audience “at the end there is a chorus, a melody, you can sing with us.” It is, like the previous song, an extremely dramatic piece of writing. Their set ends with the Stones cover “Honky Tonk Women” and “Fire And Water.” (The actual setlist is as follows: I’m On The Run, Like Water, Lady, Seven Angels, Unseen Love, Heartbreaker, Honky Tonk Women, Fire And Water.)

Free’s complete set can be found on Complete Korakuen Live! (Private Masters 040) and Fire & Water (TNT Studio) which also has several tracks from the rehearsal tape made by Rabbit Bundrick.

JOHN COLTRANE WITH DIZZY GILLESPIE - BIRDLAND 1951

JOHN COLTRANE WITH DIZZY GILLESPIE
Trane’s First Ride 1951 [Oberon 5100, 1CD]

Live at Birdland, NY. Very good radio broadcasts. Ripped from vinyl, slight crackling noises and hiss.

Here’s another slice of jazz history.

Thanks to u014945 who uploaded the tracks; and to ShaReeF who shared them at HungerCity.

Uploader’s notes:

Typical of many jazz bootleg LPs, this one contains no dates nor any information beyond song titles and the year of 1951 (despite having a long liner essay by one “E.S.Spoe”). After a good bit of research (and matching some of it with my recollections from countless hours of listening to the pedantic, yet informative Phil Schaap on Bird Flight here in New York City weekday mornings on WKCR), I have come up with the following probable list of dates and line-ups. The venue is always Birldand.

Lineage:
Boot LP Oberon 5100 “Trane’s First Ride 1951″ > Sony PS-LX250H > Yamaha RX-396 > Zoom H2 (line-in) > WAV > WavePad Sound Editor (tracking) > Trader’s Little Helper (FLAC 8, align on sector boundaries)

In all tracks there were clicks (from 5 to 10 per track); Tracks 2, 3 and 7 - there was also a kind of hiss (like that of good old LPs). Now the sound is pretty much cleaner!
Audacity (noises cutting) > Cool pro edit (LP hiss noise like removing) > TLH [SBE - Flac 8]

ED SHEERAN - GERMANY 2012

January 6, 2013 – 5:03 am

Click on the panels for a better view or to download artwork.

ED SHEERAN
Germany 2012 [no label, 2CD]

Disc 1: Live at the Junges Theater, Goettingen, Germany; September 15, 2012. Disc 2: Live at the SWR3 New Pop Festival, Kurhaus, Baden Baden, Germany; September 14, 2012. Excellent radio broadcasts.

One doesn’t need more than one to two spins to see how infectious British singer-songwriter’s Give Me Love Is. And he does have a few more where that came from. Sheeran already has hit singles with The A Team and Lego House; his 2011 debut studio album, + [plus], is well received by both fans and critics, and he co-wrote and dueted with Taylor Swift on Everything Has Changed, a track found on Swift’s Red album. From March to September 2013, Sheeran is scheduled to play 58 dates across North America as the opening act for Swift’s Red Tour. All in, things are looking swimmingly well for Sheeran. And how many 21-year-old artistes would cover Nina Simone?

Thanks to Tomyoungster for recording these shows and sharing the tracks at Dime.

THE BAND - THE LAST MOVING SHADOWS (1983-1986)

January 4, 2013 – 4:31 am

THE BAND
The Last Moving Shadows [Massive Attack, 2CD]

Disc 1: Live recordings from various venues from 1983-1986. Disc 2: Live at the Lone Star Cafe, New York; February 8, 1986 (late show). Very good to excellent soundboard.

Thanks to the person who shared this on the net in 2005.

Posted at theband.hiof.no:

This is one of the best boots of a Band concert I’ve ever heard. Richard Manuel’s version of “You Don’t Know Me” is as good as, or better than the Ray Charles’ original. Beautiful beyond description.
- John Lettiere

The Last Moving Shadows is 2-disc CD-R Band bootleg from Massive Attack Discs, probably named after Ron Horning’s 1988 article “The Moving Shadow of Richard Manuel” from Village Voice, about The Band’s former lead singer. Disc 1 contains live recordings from various venues 1983-1986, Disc 2 is from a good quality soundboard tape recorded at The Band’s concert at New York’s Lone Star Cafe, February 8, 1986, less than a month before Richard died. Also released on the Old Brown Boot label.
