THE CHAMBERS BROTHERS
New York 1971 [no label, 1CD]

Stop The Vietnam War Benefit. Live at the Cathedral Of St John The Divine, New York City, NY; 1971. Good to very good FM broadcast.

Thanks to DavMar77 for sharing this show at Dime in 2005. DavMar noted: “Here’s another good Chambers Brothers show from 1971… It’s an FM but the mix is uneven throughout. Not bad though and quite rare.”

From the wikipedia:

The Chambers Brothers are a soul-music group, best known for its 1968 hit record, the 11-minute long song “Time Has Come Today”. The group was part of the wave of new music that integrated American blues and gospel traditions with modern psychedelic and rock elements. Based on their Southern roots, the brothers brought a raw authenticity to their recordings and live performances that was missing from many other acts of that era. Their music has been kept alive through heavy use in film soundtracks.

In 2003, the home of Lola and Lester Chambers was broken in to and their record collection, consisting of over 60 Chambers Brothers albums and over 100 singles, was stolen. Lola Chambers had spent 25 years collecting Chambers Brothers records at various venues to leave these for their sons. Lester Chambers developed a number of medical problems that went untreated because he lacked insurance. He later became homeless, sleeping in a rehearsal hall in Novato, California, until Yoko Ono paid to rent a home for him and his son Dylan.

In March 2012 Lester started an Internet campaign that went viral to publicize what he claims to be a lack of equitable royalty payments. His Facebook posting received over 2,500 “likes” and over 2,000 “shares” in the first 15 hours on his “Wall”; it was featured on the homepage of Reddit and there were hundreds of tweets about the story. [Click here for more.]

On December 10 2012, Lester Chambers and Alexis Ohanian (Reddit Co-founder) teamed up to launch a kickstarter project together with the intent to make a new album titled “Lester’s Time Has Come.” Lester also spoke with reddit users on December 13, 2012 as an AMA (Ask Me Anything) event and to mention the kickstarter project to those interested.

  2. back in 97 or 98 lester wrote to me having seen an ad i had online for videos that i was offering asking me if i would send him a copy at my own expense of a 2 vhs set that i had of something called best of the bitter end. this was an incredible item about 4 hours long of a series of performances from 1967-68 all from the famed club in nyc’s west village. needless to say while i knew pretty certainly that i was dealing with les himself i was not in a position to offer to do this and suggested that if he was willing to cover the costs etc i would be willing. he chose not to. he had explained to me that he was trying to compile a video history of the chambers bros and this document would help him immensely.
    there were some incredible items on this 2 tape set including some unbelievable zappa footage as well. the quality on a scale of 1-10 was easily a 9-10. i had the 2nd best copy i had seen. the only one better was the guy who i got it from. i believe he had the first gen off the master. i no longer have this item and i havent seen it since 10.5 yrs ago. i dont believe there was more than 2 songs by the chambers bros on it but i could be wrong. it may have been 1 or 3. i just dont remember. with the advent of youtube and other similar sites with visual documentation like that its quite possible that other obscure and rare footage exists that had been previously thought to have been long lost.
    i have a photo of me between the two brothers that i had taken when they played the bandshell behind lincoln center in the early 90s at the ny blues festival. other ppl who played were john lee hooker and bill monroe. they didnt play time but they did a hell of a set nonetheless. so did jlh. they were a lot of fun to hang out with backstage too. the pic of us is like an oreo cookie. haha. they were incredible people.

  3. Why am I not surprised? God forbid you spend a couple of dollars to send this man what he requested of you! And you think that this tidbit of knowledge is worth sharing with the rest of us?!? Speaks volumes. Happy 2013! Same as it ever was. I’m sure I speak for most of us when I say that I can’t wait for more of your enlightening insights in the coming year! One more thing…”like an Oreo cookie”? WTF?!?
    Seriously, WTF?!? Like I said,I can’t wait for more intellegent, inside information like that in the coming year! God help us all, I’m sure we’ll get it.

    By Starrwatts on Jan 2, 2013

  4. I wonder how much more pleasant Lester Chamber’s life would have been if he had been able to compile his video history of the Chambers Brothers band. We’ll never know, especially since one important segment of that history, which would have helped him immensely, was not provided by its owner.

    By Dingus on Jan 2, 2013

  5. “i was not in a position to offer to do this and suggested that if he was willing to cover the costs etc i would be willing.”

    Two blank VHS tapes - $5 prox.
    Shipping - $5 prox.

    Not in a position to help a down-on-his-luck musician with $10 in costs? While selling live copies of said musician’s performance, which in all likelihood you obtained illegally?

    By Just Bill on Jan 2, 2013

  6. I was in grad school in ‘71 in Philly—boy, do I remeber these guys at this time!!! I saw a concert recorded in the summer of ‘71 that was broadcast in early ‘72. It was done in quadraphinic sound with the video on the local Group W station and the 4 channels of audio over 2 local FM stations. The show featured Linda Ronstadt, Boz Scaggs and THE CHAMBERS BROTHERS!!!!. I can still hear in my head the cymbal when Lester shouted “TIME”. Oh My!!. I can see the images in my mind of my old 19″ black and white Admiral portable TV as we had the stereo system and a mono tabletop FM radio cranking. We only got the effect of 3 out of 4 channels.

    Does anyone know of this show or know of a copy of it?? the original 4 track quad would be primo!!!!

    What a shame that this happened to this guy.

    By Allan H on Jan 2, 2013

  7. allan - in all likelihood it would have been a fillmore show. but those 3 acts didnt play the fillmore in one nite. linda only played the fillmore 2x. may 7th and 8th 1971. we’re talking fillmore east now. of course boz and the chambers bros played on other nites. its possible that these shows were recorded and put together for a radio show u heard to make it sound as if they were one show. on the nites that linda played poco and manhattan transfer also played. of course its possible that u are talking about an event from another venue but who knows. i know that many shows were filmed and recorded for later broadcast. if u knew the location of the event that would help. wmmr in phila often did broadcast shows that they bought thru syndication so if u were in phila listening to the radio there that would explain a compilation like i described above. especially after the fillmore closed half a year earlier.
    incidentally.. boz played the fillmore 2x also. in april 71. the 16 & 17th.
    the chambers bros played there 7x. if u care when.. it was 9-13&14-68 12-31-68 4-4&5-69 and 2-12&13-71. if u can ever find more info on the show u heard.. i might be able to help u locate the show. there are a few fm brdcsts of their shows out there available for dl’ing.

    and.. for the idiot way up who chose to attack me and insult my intelligence while typing a line like - “Seriously, WTF?!? Like I said,I can’t wait for more intellegent, inside information like that in the coming year!”
    incredible huh? need i point out the 11th word? hysterical!! its like who weighs 500 lbs calling someone else fat. or someone with a below 80 iq calling someone else stupid. or someone calling someone else an idiot and misspelling the word. mind numbing.
    this guy really has nothing better to do. sigh.

    the oreo cookie comment was humorous due to the fact that they are black and im white. it was funny. not racial. just funny. i was very white. they were hugging me. we really did look like a damned oreo cookie. if u think its racist then u have a problem.
    as for anyone else that thinks it was my responsibility to spend my money.. which they assume i had.. even tho i said i didnt right here and to him personally..the hell with u.
    i told him if he would put out the cash to send the tapes and the cost of the said tapes id have no problem with doing this. that doesnt include the cost of getting to and from the post office or packaging etc. or wear and tear on my equipment or my time or anything else. just tapes and postage. he was in a better position at that time and all other times than i was. even when he was homeless. who the hell are u to judge this? i even explained right here that i was not in a position. what didnt u understand?
    if u run a business regardless of what that business is.. its not up to u to automatically provide for anyone who comes along and requests free service from u.. because others out there expect u to. who are u to judge me? because u happen to be into music u think its perfectly acceptable? wtf is wrong with u?
    so if u ran a home improvement company and he needed what u offered u would have given him free work? so then all the down on his luck artists out there can come to u and all the other idiots out there like u and expect that what ever type of services u provide in the work u do that u will do it for them free? ive been down on my luck for many many years. no one gave me stuff free. im not part of the government where im subsidized and paid by someone else who will cover the costs. if u were willing to cover those costs thats another story. i couldnt. its easy to talk when youre not the one expected to put out from your own pocket.

    By darth on Jan 2, 2013

  8. “ive been down on my luck for many many years. no one gave me stuff free.”

    That’s karma, dude. What goes around comes around.

    By Earl Hickey on Jan 2, 2013

  9. Big-O ~ thanx for this posting. I have been on kickstarter many times last year, because people I know have had projects on it & have seen a variety of other projects by people I didn’t know, some worthy, some not so. Yet, I didn’t know anything about Lester’s! So, I thank you for spreading the word, & I have also forwarded it to many others. Let’s hope it all comes to fruition……..

  11. Is big o still letting this idiot dearth spill his nonsense here? Hey darth the dave Matthews bad called they are wondering how your holiday in jail was after you we’re busted selling their concerts bootlegged you jerk

    By Frogger on Jan 3, 2013

  12. Send money now I’m a nice guy

    By Cheap darth on Jan 3, 2013

  13. earl - exactly. if thats true then lets consider the order of events. shall we? my down period wasnt recently. it was in the 80s. if youre correct in your opinion of how it works then all is justified in how things worked out. i got nothing therefore i gave nothing.
    frogger - dont believe all u read/hear.
    cheap - ive asked for nothing. as i said earlier.. i offered at the time if he was willing to cover the costs id have taken care of it. he wouldnt. he wasnt down on his luck at the time. i was. i didnt have a dime. he wanted something i had. i couldnt send it to him w/o him offering to pay for it. i didnt wish to profit from him. altho it was 4 hrs of material where he was only on possibly 10 mins or less of it. if anyone was cheap it was him. i was and am a fan. it doesnt mean i was in a position to support his hobby or endeavors.

    By darth on Jan 3, 2013

  14. ” i got nothing therefore i gave nothing.”

    That doesn’t mean you can’t show compassion for others. On a moral basis, you owed the Chambers Brothers royalty payments from your sales of the tapes they were on.

    By Earl Hickey on Jan 3, 2013

  15. Yep, what a generous person you are darth! Hope you never need help dude.

    By Crow 33 on Jan 3, 2013

  16. darth please leave town you suck

    By darth darth darth on Jan 3, 2013

  17. Darth , seriously dude, your joke is over.grow up.

    By Cheap darth on Jan 3, 2013

  18. Darth—

    The venue for the concert I mentioned was in the KSAN studios—-July ‘71. It was sent down the line to other Group W stations for national distribution—shown in Phillie in January or February of ‘72. I wrote to KSAN and got a reply noting that they cleaned out and donated all their archieves to SFSU. I wrote to them—-no reply. Half of the audio was on WMMR, however due to sync issues they would not have had the feed—it would have come from KYW. Since the sale of all the Group W stations to NBC they have all cleaned house, moved, etc.

    Any further ideas would be appreciated—one of my research interests is the early, stalled, interest in 4 track audio for the consumer. In this day (read computers) it is so much easier to do. I will continue my quest!

    By Allan on Jan 3, 2013

  19. Update— I had some details confused. Show was shot at KPIX, summer of ‘70 and shown in Phillie March ‘71. It was the first of a series to called ‘Calebration’. The second and final one is the now famous concert feturing the Grateful Dead. The GD video has been floating thru cyberspace for years.

    By Allan on Jan 3, 2013

  20. good to very good fm broadcast ! what ? i hate to see what would be great broadcast.
    only cool jam they ever did was Time and it sound like crap here.just sayin’…

    By scuzz on Jan 3, 2013

  21. I think the sound is good, thanks Big O. Reminds me of early sounding J Geils, wonder if they were influenced by The Chamber Brothers.

    By Paul on Jan 4, 2013

  22. thanks. bigO, for the TIME!

  23. earl - youre assuming again. i have never sold anything with the chambers bros on it. and again i was not in a position to shell out any money to send anything to anyone. he didnt need compassion. it was 97-98. again pay attention to the dates here. whats wrong with u?? morality isnt in question here. and the chambers bros didnt supply me with any of the items in my collection. if they had and if i had sold any of the items i had of them that would be a different story. u seriously need a lesson in reading comprehension.

    crow - how much money have u sent thru to the fund that is linked on this page? any?? i didnt think so.

    allan - if writing to ksan and subsequent letters got u nowhere its likely the only way to find recordings of what u saw is to look online on your own and thru various trading groups etc. the more info u have the better. the details of the event itself is what u need. also.. u need to specify what u are looking for. audio vs video. personally when i look for things even when a video exists i am partial to finding audios of them. thats just me. there are times when i also like to have video documents of certain things. but i always want the audio.
    do some searching online with the info u know and see what u find. u may luck out. good luck.

    By darth on Jan 4, 2013

  24. “morality isnt in question here.” That’s obvious.

    “it was 97-98.” About 25 years after the height of their popularity, and 3 years after his FIRST royalty check. I doubt that he was as well off financially as you think, just read the letter in the photo above. He was homeless about 10 years later.

    ” i got nothing therefore i gave nothing.” That’s no reason to be vindictive towards others who never knew you.

    Besides, you were a rock photographer, maybe you could have bartered a deal to photograph Lester to help publicize his situation in exchange for the tapes. A magazine needs a photo, Lester sends them to you, you make a sale, and get your name out there too. Who knows what it leads to? A good deal for your $20 outlay. I’m afraid you let your poor outlook affect your decision here. You should be more optimistic.

    By Earl Hickey on Jan 4, 2013

  25. Darth do us all a huge favor and just go away.

    By Cheap darth on Jan 4, 2013

  26. earl - what the fuck are u talking about??? this isnt the subject at hand. youre not making any sense whatsoever here. i say morality isnt in question here and u say its obvious??? so u agree with me? then why say it in the first place??
    it doesnt matter how well off financially they were or not. thats not my problem nor do u know what i think or thought at the time. thats not important here nor does it matter. it isnt the point and has no bearing on the subject at hand. im not part of that situation and i dont owe them anything. i didnt hire them and owning something on vhs tape that i had in my collection that i had in a list of items that les found out i had doesnt mean that i owed him a copy. if he wanted a copy he had the ability to get one from me at cost. whether or not u or anyone else thinks i should have sent it to him at my expense doesnt matter here. the point is i didnt. i wouldnt have even if i could have because it wasnt my responsibility to do so. yes i was running a sort of mini business at the time but i had no money to be able to do what he wanted. he did have money to be able to pay for the costs of the blanks and shipping. he chose not to. what u think 14-15 years later is of no consequence. u dont seem to understand this. i only recounted a brief story. i didnt think u and some of these other idiots would misunderstand this and blow this so far out of proportion. altho from previous experience i should know better.
    that he was homeless 10 yrs later doesnt matter. i was homeless too at one point. what the hell does that have to do with anything? he wasnt at the time he contacted me. why mention that he was homeless 10 yrs later? i read the picture. its incredible. none of us knew this. but that doesnt change the facts up til that point.
    and i wasnt vindictive towards him or anyone else. i dont know what u are talking about. all i did was offer to share with him what i had for cost.
    if u knew how many ppl i had contact me and tell me that they were famous ppl and would like a copy of such n such tapes for whatever reason and i should just send them either a copy or in some cases.. my original. u wouldnt believe over the course of the years 1994 to 2002 how many people wrote to me to tell me such garbage. it didnt happen before that because i didnt get online til early 94. i stopped all online trading and dealing in july 02. i started up again in april 04. i had never downloaded til 04 and i didnt start burning til may 06.
    but nothing about this entire thing has anything whatsoever to do with vindictiveness. u are very sorely mistaken. i dont know what u are talking about and it sure seems neither do u.
    my rock photography and my tape collecting are unrelated and i stopped doing the photography in 95 for the most part. like u i didnt know about his situation. no one is interested in pics of him and no one is buying pics of him. im not a magazine publisher and i dont have funds to pay anyone to shoot them. u have the wrong idea about what i did as a photographer. i was a street photographer.
    i didnt know about his situation how could i publicize it years before i knew about it? i left nyc in nov 95. thats when i gave up the hobby of taking pics. i only took a few more pics in 96 and 02 at a convention.
    if lester sent me his pics how is that me taking them? if im the photographer why would i need lester to send me anything? i wasnt looking to get my name out there. why would my name be anywhere if lester is sending me pictures that i didnt take? who am i selling these pictures to? who the hell do u think wants to buy them? do u think lester is madonna?
    i think u forgot to take your medications. youre not thinking clearly here. nothing u suggested makes any sense whatsoever. when he contacted me i was living 100 miles north of nyc. i dont know where he lived at the time but even if it was in nyc.. which im sure it wasnt.. id have had to travel to and from nyc to meet him and photograph him. thats not cheap. wheres that money coming from? then id have to figure out how im going to sell these photos of him and to whom. thats more footwork and time and costs on my part. not to mention the film batteries developing printing etc. and youre suggesting that i would get all this opportunity because i put out $ from my own pocket WHICH I SAID I DIDNT HAVE 10 TIMES ALREADY!!! (not that id have done it even if i did have it) in order to send him copies of tapes from my collection at my cost because he didnt want to cover the costs of blanks and postage.
    i ask again.. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH U???

    By darth on Jan 4, 2013

  27. Wow, someone’s got a case if the Mondays! You totally misunderstood what I said about the photography, I guess you let your anger get the best of you! What I meant was that you could have been Lester’s “official” photographer. If a magazine or web site needed a photo of him, he refers them to you, and you make the sale! That’s good karma, dude! An act of kindness is rewarded in kind. It could lead to photo assignments for other people.

    Nothing’s wrong with me, darth, I’m an optimistic, happy guy! You’ll be the same when you let go of your anger. You take care now :)

    By Earl Hickey on Jan 4, 2013

  28. i am going to take a somewhat ‘wag’ and say this concert took place on december 6, 1971. 12-06-71

  29. Cant someone shut this idiot darth up once and for all ? He is ruining a very good site with his profane rant lunatic rants.

    By Thevoiceofreason on Jan 5, 2013

  30. Darth here is some recommended reading- inexpensive Also- YOU probably could pick up a copyof the book for under $1.00 on ebay= How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

    By tunafan on Jan 5, 2013

  31. the point isnt to shut someone up who u dont like. if its open for u to say what u wish then shouldnt it be open for all? who is to say that u should have the right to speak your mind but that someone else shouldnt? dont u understand freedom?

    earl - who determines that i can be his official photographer? u? how? from where? who would pay for this? again how? did u have any of this figured out or does simply typing it all out just work it out? im not angry. im frustrated at stupidity and ignorance. im not an agency. if someone needs a photo they dont contact him. they contact photo agencies. how would they know how to contact him in the first place? remember he was homeless at some point. u wanted me to somehow know this and again find him at a point when i was no longer even doing what i did with my photography and somehow become a photo agent. u didnt have any of this worked out. u were talking out of your ass. none of it made any sense. there were no sales to be made. it has nothing to do with karma. your head is in the clouds. it also has nothing to do with good acts. again.. i repeat this for the umpteenth time.. i cant figure out why u arent getting this… I WAS NOT IN A POSITION TO SEND HIM ANYTHING. THE ACT OF KINDNESS WAS THE WILLINGNESS TO SEND HIM THE TAPES AT COST. MY COST. THE COST OF BUYING THE BLANKS AND SENDING THEM TO HIM. what arent u understanding here?? ive explained this to u repeatedly. why arent u reading what i am saying here???
    it wouldnt have led to any assignments at all whatsoever!! u dont know what u are talking about. u havent got a clue how this industry works.

    I-) if u have anything to back up why u think thats the date of the show other than random guessing.. im sure people would love to hear/read it. if u looked something up and found something.. share that with us. what did u find? was there other performances that nite at the same venue? if so.. who else played? what did u find?

    By darth on Jan 5, 2013

  32. tuna - ive read it. it doesnt apply here. in fact.. its everyone else who is responding to my original post on this page who should be reading that book.

    By darth on Jan 5, 2013

  33. Darth, you’re a douche bag.

    By George Martini on Jan 5, 2013

  34. darth, here’s how it might have worked, back in ‘97-’98, if you hadn’t been in such a shame spiral:

    Lester wants copies of your tapes, he doesn’t want (or can’t afford) to pay. You offer the tapes in exchange for photographing him. You insist (maybe even draw up a contract) that if anyone wants to write a story on him, he refers them to you, his official photographer, the dude who took some great photos of him. You make a sale! The more publicity Lester’s situation gets, the more sales you make! Those sales might not happen immediately, but an optimist will believe that they WILL happen. Those sales might lead to new work for other people! Don’t forget, Yoko Ono helped Lester, he may have been able to tell her about you, and who knows what that may have led to? That’s karma, dude! Who you know makes a big difference in any business, darth. Please be more optimistic, you’ll be a much happier person :)

  35. GREAT ADVICE EARL BUT IT WILL GO UNTHANKED

    By DROPKICK SARGE on Jan 6, 2013

  36. Thanks Sarge! That’s OK, it might help someone out there. That shame spiral can be a tough nut to crack.

    By Earl Hickey on Jan 6, 2013

  37. earl - evidently no matter how many times i try to explain this to u.. u refuse to get it so i guess u are just going to insist on playing this ridiculous game on purpose. i think youre fucking with me as part of a head game of some sort. i cant see any other possible reason for what u are doing. ive tried to figure it out and the best i can come up with is that either u are severely damaged from having suffered some accident or done some major drugs or gone thru a beating or possibly youre a sadistic son of a bitch and u just enjoy making me think u really dont understand what im saying and i feel sorry for u and realizing this that i might try yet again to explain it in even simpler terms to dumb it down even further so that even a stupid fucking imbecile could get it.
    i frankly dont know which it is. seriously. i dont. ive gone over this repeatedly and i dont get it. this is the final time…

    I LIVED IN NY STATE. 3000 MILES AWAY FROM HIM. I DIDNT HAVE THE MONEY TO SEND HIM THE TAPES THAT U WANT TO THINK I HAD THE OBLIGATION TO SEND HIM. I DONT CARE HOW MUCH KARMA U THINK IT WOULD HAVE BEEN. THIS ISNT THE POINT HERE. THATS NOT HOW I WORK. IF HE HAD BEEN WILLING TO COVER THE COSTS IN OBTAINING THE TAPES.. WHICH WOULD HAVE ONLY BEEN $4 AND $5 FOR PRIORITY MAILING.. I WOULD HAVE GLADLY SENT HIM THE TAPES. HE WASNT INTERESTED. AGAIN THIS IS 1997 OR 98. HE HAD MUCH MORE MONEY AT THAT TIME THAN I DID. I DONT CARE IF U BELIEVE THIS OR NOT. THATS NOT THE POINT OR MY PROBLEM HERE. U NEED TO UNDERSTAND THIS AND U NEED TO PAY ATTENTION HERE. STOP IGNORING THESE DETAILS. STOP MAKING ME REPEAT THIS. I DIDNT SAY HE HAD TO PAY $40 OR 50 PLUS SHIPPING WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN THE NORMAL PRICE FOR THESE TAPES. I WAS NOT IN A POSITION TO SEND ANYTHING TO ANYONE. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOKO. I WASNT A PHOTOGRAPHER AT THE TIME EITHER. I HAD STOPPED TAKING PICS IN NOV 95. AGAIN I LIVED 3000 MILES AWAY FROM HIM. TO TAKE PICS OF HIM I WOULD HAVE HAD TO TRAVEL TO CALIF TO GET PICS OF HIM. U ARENT THINKING HERE. I AM NOT INTERESTED AND I WASNT AT THE TIME IN DRAWING UP ANY CONTRACTS WITH ANYONE. I HAD NO INTEREST IN BEING ANYONES PRIMARY PHOTOGRAPHER EITHER. THAT WASNT WHAT I DID. I WAS ALSO NOT AN AGENT AND HAD I BEEN OFFERED THAT SORT OF OPTION I WOULDNT HAVE BEEN INTERESTED IN THAT EITHER. WHILE I WAS AND AM A HUGE FAN OF THE CHAMBERS BROS. THIS SORT OF THING WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN OF ANY INTEREST TO ME WHATSOEVER. ITS JUST NOT WHAT I DID/DO. SALES LIKE U IMAGINE DONT LEAD TO WORK FOR OTHER PEOPLE. THE REAL WORLD DOESNT WORK THAT WAY. I WAS INVOLVED IN THE WORLD OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND CELEBRITY JOURNALISM AND SO ON FOR OVER 17 YEARS. I KNOW WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT. U DONT. U ARE ASSUMING AND DREAMING AND IMAGINING WHAT U THINK IT COULD BE. I KNOW BETTER HOW IT IS. IT JUST DIDNT / DOESNT WORK THAT WAY. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN WONDERFUL IF IT DID. BUT THATS JUST NOT HOW IT WORKS. YOURE SAYING IT MIGHT THIS OR THAT. THATS FINE. I DONT RUN MY LIFE ON WHAT MIGHT BE. IM INTERESTED IN THE HERE AND NOW.

  39. No darth, I’m not f***ing with you, and I’m not “damaged” in any way. I only wanted to be as clear as possible to make sure you understood me.

    What I described here has worked very well for a good friend who has been a self-employed commercial photographer for close to 40 years. In fact, he shot for music publishing companies and a very large concert promoter in his early years in the business. He’s very selective when he works this way, and doesn’t do it very often, but he tells me it has lead to assignment work. Apparently you were less successful with your business tactics.

    darth, it was never my intention to “harass” you, I thought I’d pass on some friendly advice that worked for someone else. I’m done here unless you want to continue the discussion. Your karma seems to be in a bad place right now; good luck setting it straight, and don’t forget to be optimistic.

  40. Why do you all fall for this Darth troll? Week after week I pop in here and on and on this saga continues. However his first post here bragging about NOT sending videos to the member of the band just proves how low this maniac will sink.

    At not much expense, I have personally provided FREE copies of audio/visual material to old musicians of their work sometimes by request, sometimes out of thoughtfulness.

    It’s known as having RESPECT. When you buy their records, CD’s or whatever, how much of that cash actually goes into the artistes’ bank account? Pitifully little. The least I can do if their work has given me any kind of pleasure is to give something back to them. But that’s me, and Darth is… well… I’ll leave it to his fan club to provide a suitable description.

  42. I just read Lester’s Reddit interview. He wrote Hendrix came out and played “Time Has Come Today”.
    The Kickstarter campaign is going to close within 24 hours, but glad Lester exceeded his target goal.

    Is any of the Bitter End footage of them or others on You Tube? Just wondering what the history behind it is, and what’s on it. Should put some of it up!

    By peacefarmer on Jan 10, 2013

  44. danny - i never saw any of it on youtube. i dont have the videos any longer. i dont post to youtube either. im sure there is some footage that happened at the bitter end on youtube however and im sure any footage that is there was included in the 4 hour set i had.
    it was a hell of a documentary. it was a one time tv brdcst i guess or perhaps it was intended as one since there were no commercials in those 4 hours. it may have been the raw footage that i had. i dont recall. it was all from 67-68 if i remember correctly. it was also all b/w.

    as for the idiot bruce above who clearly either doesnt know how to read or just chooses to be selective in what he sees… perhaps u should go back up to the things i posted before judging and assuming and forming opinions that are clearly totally based on pure ignorance and stupidity. anyone can say they did this or that.. or they would do this or that if..
    the facts remain.. chances are u didnt do anything of the sort. no one who was ever a recording artist ever asked u for anything. u never met or talked to anyone in your life. u didnt own anything anyone would have wanted in the first place. and youre just jumping on a bandwagon trying to be part of a group where u have never posted before. ironically in all likelihood u are someone who is posting repeatedly already to harass me just using another name. get a life already.

  48. I am currently writing a book on our lives. My husband is Lester Chambers. If anyone would like to contribute memories or pictures, please write me @[email protected] Regarding this darth, I do remember requesting a copy for our sons to see their father and Uncles (since we had NO live footage of them) and he was charging way too much (certainly not $10) for us to afford. To be selling film footage WITHOUT THE BROTHERS PERMISSION IS ILLEGAL ANYWAYS BUT IT SEEMS EVERYONE GETS AWAY WITH IT. WOLFGANG VAULT is one of them and has been sued by many groups that can afford a lawyer. I spoke in 2002 at a California Senate hearing with Don Henley, Mrs. Bing Crosby, etc. trying to enact legislature governing the music industry. One of the Dixie Chicks hugged me after my speech, in which I told how THE CHAMBERS BROTHERS ARE PROBABLY THE BEST EXAMPLE OF RECORD COMPANY EMBEZZLEMENT.No other artist can say that their hit song has been illegally licensed to over 100 films, tv & commercials WITHOUT THE BROTHERS CONSENT AND NO PAYMENT UNTIL LESTER JOINED A CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT SUING FOR PENSION EMBEZZLEMENT IN 1994.

  50. once again.. this lola never wrote to me. lester himself had written to me. i informed him that if he was willing to cover postage which he wasnt willing to.. he could have the tape(s). it was only 1-2 songs on a 4 hour documentary about the bitter end - a club in the village in nyc. regardless of how much money les had at the time he was doing better than i was. i didnt have the cash to send him the videos and it wasnt my responsibility to share what i had in my collection with him. that he found out that i happened to own a copy of and not any sort of original copies mind u just a copy of these recordings is a fluke. i was just one trader / collector who happened to be out there and made myself very known at the time. i owned a lot of recordings. i had a massive collection and i was very into the 60s and 70s music and that particular item was of special interest to me so when i was able to obtain a copy myself i did. i got it from a guy in connecticut at a convention in nj that i had agreed to meet him at back in the late 80s. i often picked up 100 vids at a time from him. he had the best stuff back then.
    but i digress.
    the most important point is u did not write to me. if u couldnt pay the cost for my blank tapes ($4) the shipping priority ($4) and say $2 gas to get to the post office and back to send u the damned tapes - a possible $10 that i may have quoted as a charge for 4 hours of extremely rare footage then im sorry. again it wasnt u who wrote to me. it was les. u couldnt remember me. this was around 98 now. i may not have even had the name darth at the time depending on if it was before or after aug 5th that year.
    no one ever bought these tapes. i have never stolen anything from the chambers bros. i didnt get any money that wasnt mine that was due them. and keep in mind 1-2 songs (not the entire song time either) on a 4 hour documentary about the bitter end featuring dozens of other bands. sigh.

    Good luck Ms. Chambers, I hope you, Lester, and the other Brothers get what’s rightfully theirs.

    By Earl Hickey on May 22, 2013

  52. my karma is fine. its not biting me at all and it never will. i did nothing wrong. u dont get to judge my karma. just because i own something in my collection doesnt mean i have to make copies of it at my expense and share it with people. again… i offered to do this if les wanted it and was willing to pay the costs. i would have made no profit whatsoever on it. just postage/shipping and the costs of the blanks. nothing more. he decided he didnt want it that badly. perhaps he found the recordings elsewhere. who knows. i found them therefore he could have.

    plenty wrong with YOUR SCRUPLES THOUGH.

    i SEE BIGO even printed the letter from lola that mentions your um..CHARITY .
    ITS OUT THERE FOR ALL the world to see and read now.

    By dropkick sarge on May 22, 2013

  56. bigo doesnt print the letters any more than they print yours. u post a comment and hit submit. there was no charity in 98 when les wrote to me and theres no rule that says i have to contribute to it when asked. theres something severely wrong with u. im not sure u realize this and i dont understand why someone isnt trying to explain this to u slowly so even u can get it. i wasnt in a position to give anything to anyone where it would cost me anything. even if i did have it thats not my obligation either. u didnt come fwd and offer to pay for the item did u? no one else did either. why am i expected to put out money i didnt have? who the fuck are u to tell me what i should or shouldnt do? or what charities i should contribute to and when? this isnt about scruples u jackass!! when do u contribute to charities that cater to me? and why shouldnt u? who are u to dictate who should get my money? what on gods earth is wrong with u???

    and lastly.. if theres nothing wrong with your keyboard..why was the excuse previously that u couldnt fix the caps because it was broken and then u got a new one and now once again its all caps??? im thinking that u never got a new keyboard at all. i think u lied and youre a miserable son of a bitch boy who was caught lying so many times and didnt have any more excuses about the damned thing and knew that the all caps thing was getting a little stupid so u finally calmed down on them. u dont know when to hit the caps lock til someone points it out. u need a damned life u sniveling little shit.

    i wasnt in a position to give anything to anyone where it would cost me anything

    By dropkick sarge on May 22, 2013

  62. those two things arent mutually exclusive of one another. picking things up from my guy steve happened from 88-94. i left nyc in 95. i never saw steve (the guy i got a lot of my stuff from including that particular item). les asked for that 2 vhs set in 98. and again it doesnt matter. i dont need to put out money to support someone elses interest or needs. if he needed something it is up to him to pay for the costs to obtain it. not me. what dont u understand here?

    if he wanted the item.. it isnt selling the music. its offering the item for free. the cost of the blanks and shipping is all that i was asking him. as i stated no one ever bought the item from me. it was never offered for sale to anyone. u need to learn to read. try a reading comprehension course.

    By darth on May 23, 2013

  63. i meant i never saw steve again after nov 95 when i left nyc. i had been from 88 onward til june 02 trading vhs tapes. my collection ultimately culminated in a collection of over 12500 videos and 24500 audios. i had stopped the audios pretty much in 95 altho i did a little more for another 2 yrs.

    i never said i was neil youngs photographer.

  68. I think you should just change your name to

    By dropkick sarge on May 23, 2013

  69. the ad was a trade list. it even said so on the top of it. nothing on the page said anything about anything being for sale. it was just a list of videos available for trade. i updated it once a week. it was on geocities at the time. it was just a very large text file. not all ads are for selling items. in fact i originally got online to find more ppl to trade tapes with.

    as for as ‘i never said’.. if u keep accusing me of saying things i didnt say what kind of responses do u expect back? idiot!!

    By darth on May 24, 2013

  70. as for as ‘i never said’.. if u keep accusing me of saying things i didnt say what kind of responses do u expect back? idiot!!

    well this “idiot’ sees what you write in your posts , cuts and pastes it just to see you say I never said that.
    you are such a liar. you use the phrase in nearly every one of your cursing rants.you either have a very poor memory or a very selective one. Just pointing out the obvious.

    By dropkick sarge on May 24, 2013

  71. just cuz u cut n paste it doesnt make me a liar. and just cuz u accuse me of it doesnt make it so either. sorry about yer luck there. funny how u dont consider what youre doing ranting but when i respond.. im ranting. ironic. i dont have a poor memory but even if i did.. i have u to remind me of things i said. u can point out all u wish. everything u have tried to point out i have responded to and explained and left u saying oops and duh about. u have nothing.
    that last one was a doozy. that was like saying which is it - u either have apples or feet? hello?!?! why cant u have both? theyre not mutually exclusive.
    when u think youre pointing out the obvious the only thing youre showing everyone is how utterly fucking retarded u are. to everyone who isnt just a hater for no real reason theyre actually laughing at u. u just dont know it. admittedly not everyone will tell u that youre becoming a laughing stock. youre putting a lot of energies and efforts into something that is clearly a waste of time. u dont know what youre talking about. u havent a clue about anything at all. youre trying to catch me in things that are totally out of your realm of knowledge and i dont know what the fuck u are talking about. youre making it clear that u dont either.

    if u wanna try to make a point then try to make one dont expect me to make it for u. but u have to pay attention to the responses. dont ignore them. i shouldnt have to repeat things i have already said to u. when u respond to my responses dont make it appear that u didnt read my responses like u keep doing.

    By darth on May 24, 2013

    By jor-el on Aug 10, 2013

  90. amazing how u ignore my postings. absolutely incredible. but anyway.. the wolfgangs site sells art and posters and tshirts and recordings etc. they do give money to the artists in question. i dont think there are any suits currently going on. i think u believe that there are yes. i dont believe that wg’s is using the chambers bros name in any way. their name is on the poster that theyre offering for sale at 50% off. thats why i posted the message announcing this. i figured that fans of the band might be interested since those posters are normally very expensive. i collect these posters when i can afford them from the 60s and early 70s myself and with a discount like that its much more possible to obtain them. i dont know anything about where the money goes and its none of my business. they dont owe the money to the chambers bros if they sell the posters because its just a poster and when merchandise like that is sold royalties are not usually paid for such things. just like if u had a store or business and u sold items relating to a band u wouldnt send a portion of your profits to each band connected with each item. u wouldnt last long if u did this. its preposterous. its just not done.

    as far as that idiot up there claiming he knows all about me and the chambers bros.. well thats just ridiculous. it suggests that there is something wrong with what went on 15 yrs ago and i have told yall several times exactly what happened. i did nothing wrong. i handled the situation exactly as i felt i should and could at the time. it isnt and wasnt my responsibility to provide anything i owned to anyone even if they were a member of a band just because i happened to own a copy of something and they happened to find out that i did. i wasnt the only one who had it and i wasnt in a position to support his need or desire for the item. i offered it to him for my costs. he chose not to cover those costs and therefore he didnt obtain the item. i dont cater to what others think i should do any more than others cater to what i think they should do. u dont live my life and u dont pay my bills or provide me with sex. u dont get to tell me what i should have done or should do. its not like i get to make your decisions for u.. right? if u really cant see this.. then there is no hope for u to ever understand what i am saying. i cant put this any simpler for u. i have tried so many times that even u should understand what i am saying here. i cant dumb this down for u any lower. i truly do not understand why u dont get this.

    there are many ppl who may not know about wolfgangs site and others who may not know that they have specials like a 50% off week or anything like that. u may not like that i am informing people who might be interested in such a thing. u dont have to spend your money there thats fine. but others may wish to. so the information isnt for u. its for those who are interested in it. i cant know everyone out there who may be interested. its just an ad. just like commercials on tv. u may not want a particular product but it doesnt matter. there are people who might. ads in newspaper mags and so on. all i did was post a message to let people know who might care. i dont know why u cant just let things go. if it wasnt me u would have ignored it. u need to learn to just make believe its not me posting comments or any messages on these pages. clearly they bother u when my name is on them. perhaps u should seek help for this problem. im not going anywhere. ive told u this countless times.

    btw.. lola chambers is not suing anyone. that entire line of crap about her suing wolfgangs etc.. thats all bogus information. i am not sure if she may have a suit against one or two of the record labels that have released the chambers bros music for back payments they never got or perhaps some record companies for putting out albums that were sort of grey area recordings like that one i mentioned on one of these pages that someone was looking for and i had found but the link was dead. its a one word title im forgetting which one it is. its probably in the comments on the sweetwater performance that bigo offered.

  100. Man I LOVE Darth/Glen Frohman’s line of crap. He claims he had many well known music artists contacting him asking for tapes in his collection. He claims he’s done nothing wrong.

    And yet he was arrested and charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit video piracy– and pled guilty.

    He claims he was poor at the time, and yet he doesn’t mention he was living with a woman not his wife and he called his video piracy and bootleg endeavor a “manufacturing/ distribution” BUSINESS and bragged on one AOL chat room he sold over 50 bootleg copies of ” Song of the South”

    Seems to me Glen, if you really were the music fan you pose yourself, you would have been happy to donate the tape and shipping to the man. Then again, I think you know that the reason why you DIDN’T was partly your greed and partly because what you were doing was illegal.

    You got caught, Glen, and your collection was destroyed by the government.

    And even a decade later you are still an arrogant jerk.

  104. u didnt get it from me. and theres no reason why a vhs tape wouldnt work. it would have been a perfectly good brand new vhs tape that was just made off of my copy. if there was a problem with it u would have told me so and i would have replaced it. i never got any negative feedback or complaints about it. i also didnt offer the film on ebay since they made it nearly impossible. just because that lying ass above says that i sold them doesnt mean i sold them on ebay. i offered them in other venues.
    whether or not i work has nothing to do with anything.

  108. yes pre recorded tapes that were manufactured by the 100s of 1000s were made on very inferior types of tapes and were never checked for quality or playability etc.
    when i produced a tape i always checked it before shipping it out since it was always just one at a time. it wasnt like i was mass producing product. i had 4 machines hooked up to one another so that when one played i could make 3 copies. that way i didnt wear down my originals by playing them too often. it wasnt always that way but in the last few yrs i did it that way. but i always checked every tape first. that way i knew that all my sent copies were fine. it saved postage and time. i did the same thing when it came to cds once i got into trading those. i never sold cds or dvds so that was never an issue. and when i copied cds it was always one at a time.
    usually the way cds worked it was a vining thing where a cd was sent out and the recipient would copy the cd for himself then fwd the cd he got to the next person. i miss those days. but now we dont have to worry about postage and we also dont have to worry about being stuck with cds when no one says theyre interested in it after we got it.
    that happened to me nearly 100x and finally i sent all the ones i had been stuck with to someone in europe which ended up costing me like $38 or more.

    you don`t know that.You make these broad statements all the time Darth and you cannot possibly back them them.you don`t know what measures were taken by various manufacturers to ensure quality standards do you.
