Boston 1975 [Dan Lampinski Recording, 2CD]

Live at the Boston Garden, Boston, MA, June 18, 1975. Very good audience recording.

Recently, a number of new Dan Lampinski live recordings were shared freely on the internet. Apart from being lossless and high quality tracks (these were offered as both 16-bit/44.1 KHz and 24-bit/96 KHz files), they are also highly regarded for being very good concert recordings. While these Lampinski shows are a boon for the fans, bootleggers too have taken advantage of them and cashed in by selling them as silver discs.

While this Boston show has circulated before, those who have heard the show previously would be impressed by the clarity here and it’s certainly worth having as part of your Pink Floyd collection. And it’s practically two albums on one show - Wish You Were Here and Dark Side Of The Moon; plus a 21-minute Echoes. Dave Gilmour’s lead sparkles on Shine On You Crazy Diamond and for those who enjoyed the sax on Dark Side, you’ll thrill to it here.

Here are some early fan reactions to the Dan Lampinski recording:

“I went to ‘Echoes’ for comparison with ‘Echoes of the Stage’. From the second you hear Roger’s voice you know this is a massive upgrade. The sax solo is gorgeous. The twin guitar solos in ‘You Gotta Be Crazy’ are absolutely incandescant… Everyone who hears this will be thrown through a sonic wormhole and revisit the concert.”

“this is the only Pink Floyd concert I have ever seen. It was a great experience. the lightshow was one of the best ever. the whole WYWH part was phenominal. nice to get it from a master, especially this master.”
- glasnostrd19

A note on Dan Lampinski: Dan recorded over 100 concerts in the Providence/Boston area, mostly between 1974 and 1978. Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ’ing has been done to any of the transfers.

Thanks to djscomics for sharing the lossless tracks on the Dime site. Above all, thanks to Dan, Carl Morstadt (who mastered the tracks), Kev and the rest of the Lampinski crew.

  7. After reading the recording description I was slightly let down, but this might be a grower. It is an audience recording after all. I do like the way the music sounds. The vocals are kind of ragged though. Toward the of disc one you can hear what sounds like firecrackers popping. I remember that phenomenon from when I first started going to concerts in the late ’70s. It was actually a little effin’ scary. In the darkness dickheads would throw them and you never could tell where they would land. I was at a couple of shows that stopped for a while due to fireworks because the performers were so pissed off. Thank God that shit is over with. Anyway thank for the post. Happy New Year.

  11. Thank you for all the music and all the information too! The articles published are really interesting: the unofficial history indeed.

    Back to music. Hmmm, I love the PinkFloyd music so much! By the way, will you offer any Floyd concert from the “Animals” period? I listened to one record called “Animal Instincts” but it sounds terribly bad (it makes no justic to such a beautiful music).

    Happy new year.

  12. Hey BigO!

    Happy New Year & thanks for this Roio.

    Floyd is quite a good way to start 2010.

    By Pete on Jan 2, 2010

  13. I agree, Agusti… More Floyd! A lot of early, pre-Dark Side stuff seems to circulate, but not so much after that. I wonder why.

    By Shaun on Jan 2, 2010

  14. It’s been awesome hearing decent quality audience recordings from the Wish You Were Here and Animals tours. Really hard to find the songs done live, part of the wish list for Floyd fans was just so they had properly recorded this.

    Does a Knebworth show from 75 exist? Have yet to hear that one.

    By Danny on Jan 2, 2010

  15. Better copy than the “Echoes from the Garden”.

    By Chucks on Jan 2, 2010

  16. I too had this for years as Echoes From The Gardens. One quick listen to ECHOES (say, why is it that this is ‘the track’ that everyone always downloads first to check the sound? Dumb question!) and I was hooked. I am quite familiar with the Lampinski recordings from yours and other file-share sites. This is an absolute gem and thanks so much for sharing it! I saw the Philly stop of this tour at the soon-to-be-destroyed Spectrum (fondly referred to locally as The Rectum but soon to be The Wreckedtum)and 35 years later I still see trails. Third bardo for sure. Thanks for sharing these awesome tracks, friend. Happy New Year 2K10 and keep up the great work.

    By Adam Dean on Jan 3, 2010

  17. Let’s see…Queen, Floyd, the Dead, Neil, Lennon, AND Elvis Costello?

    This is without a doubt the best run of top-qual boots Big O has ever lined up.

    THANK YOU!!!

  18. You might want to add to the line-up performing on this recording. Probably Dick Parry on sax, Snowy White on guitar and vocals (pretty sure that’s him singing ‘Money’) and of course Claire Torrey singing ‘That Great Gig In The Sky’. (She recently won a settlement for co-writing credit on that song, must be one heck of a retirement package. They put her in a room with the backing track, she came out an hour later and did it twice. They kept the second pass. Incredible singer.)

  20. well roger used claire on one or two of his recent tours when he did songs where her vocals were useful. not just great gig. i know for sure that when he did the dark side tour a few years ago she was in the line up.

    an interesting note - i had gone out to la for the mtv awards in 89 or 90 as i did several years when they were there and not in ny and ran into scott page who played sax on the 87/88 tours and also on the 89 venice show. we talked for a while since he recognized me from having seen me so much over the last couple of yrs. he told me he had an extra poster from the venice show. imagine how thrilled i was.

    anyway.. one thing he mentioned that floored me was that prior to being part of the touring band in 87.. was that he had never even heard dark side of the moon. can u imagine? 14 yrs with an album that had been on the charts non stop and he had never heard it. i asked why and it was primarily because he was mostly a jazz musician and had really never delved outside the area of jazz either in his playing nor his listening choices. i just thought that fans of floyd would find this interesting when they consider what a fabulous job he did for approximately 152 shows on that delicate sound of thunder tour.
