Jazamo Notes & Fixes 10/18/2014:
Set-1 seems complete, but Set-2 might be missing a song or two. Overall there were many Volume Fluctuations to Set-1, and Set-2 was recorded too hot. I have adjusted the Volume overall for more consistant sound. Track 1-01 cut in abruptly, I removed -.05 seconds to smooth show intro. Track 1-05 has a click rhythm which might sound like static to some, but its not. Track 1-11 had fade-Out-> Fade-In at the end applause, I fixed that. Added fade outs to ends of sets Track 1-12 and 2-10. Finally the Jan 2007 Dime upload of the song "Sunshine Sunshine" had numerous dropouts in source file making it unlistenable. The original seeder then re-upped the entire set with the track fixed but had not been reposted in dime since 2007. I didn't think I should hold back this "Diamonds In The Rough" show any longer so I have deleted the damaged track from my fixed set.

Here's a great James Taylor show performing Solo in Cambridge Massachusetts in early 1970. Through the 2 sets James is loose, funny, and gives a story tellers background to many of the songs to a loving audience glued to his every word. The Original 2007 file set suffered from Volume Fluctuations, 1 damaged track, and cuts. I have Fixed and cleaned up the whole show to improve the overall listening experience. The show is Sound Board sourced and contains some tape hiss (Hear Samples). Many thanks to the original seeder Jitters. A great document of early James "Diamonds In The Rough", as always your comments are Appreciated!

Recorded live at The Paris Theatre, London, Spring 1968

Originally broadcast on BBC2 TV: 31 August 1968 (Tr. 01-05) & 7 September 1968 (Tr. 06-13)

[Revision 1.0 / 18-9-2016]

Notes by Prof. Stoned:
A very important bootleg, IMO, that begs for an official release. Reportedly, it was sourced from a cassette copy that a fan got directly from an BBC employee after writing a letter to inquire after the status of this recording. The BBC employee also mentioned that this came from his private copy and that video sources no longer existed in the archives.

The audio recording was first heard by the public in 1993 when it came out on a pressed CD bootleg in inferior quality. Then later in the mid-2000's it started to circulate in better quality. I first heard this in 2006 when someone uploaded it on Dime's tracker. Although pretty clean, that source was marred heavily by noise  reduction artefacts. For this new version, I have used another source that I found on another tracker. It had more noises and also some signs of NR, but substantially less than the 2006 Dime source. I fear this is probably as good as it's gonna get, unless someone manages to obtain a clean digital copy of the BBC cassette, which to my knowledge is not into circulation.    

Despite the obvious deterioration to the source material, the sound quality here has still turned out quite good. I have carefully restored and remastered this at my mastering studio. The original source sounded a bit dull. By bringing up the high-end a bit, the NR problem and hiss also became more apparent, but I think I found an acceptable balance (to my taste, anyway). I also corrected the correct speed of the two original parts (one ran a bit too fast, the other a bit too slow).

To me, the historical importance outweighs the sonic flaws by far. Four songs performed here (not counting Tr. 06, which is more a joke than a song) were unreleased at the time, though already fully realized. Some of the arrangements are quite different from the studio versions and there's an extra unheard verse on Tr. 04.

*Running time: 51:05 min 

This DVD was sent to me by my friend Tolvis who received it from another trader. Huge thanks to both for sharing and for permitting me to upload it! 
Several (NTSC) DVD copies of a ~45 min TV broadcast of this show were uploaded over the years. Before I recently received this 51:05 min (PAL) DVD, I was entirely unaware of any longer TV broadcast - even though I did sometimes wonder if it might exist, because the famous, but misleadingly titled SBD bootleg CD "Europe 1993" runs over 50 min and differs tracklist-wise from the ~45 min TV broadcast. This ~51 min TV broadcast has exactly the same tracklist as "Europe 1993". Thus, it contains "Master of Insanity", "After All (The Dead)" and "Iron Man", all of which are NOT included in the ~45 min broadcast (the latter containing the song "Black Sabbath" instead). Since both "Master of Insanity" and "After All (The Dead)" are favourites of mine, that was really good news for me. 

Video and audio quality of this 1st gen VHS > PAL DVD is really nice but far from perfect (its most obvious flaw being the noise before and after "Computer God"). Check out snapshots and audio sample below. 

The ~45 min broadcast with the song "Black Sabbath" is well-circulated, but only on NTSC DVD. Since Italy was a PAL country, a PAL version would be preferable.

It's just a couple songs from Van Halen and 1 from Maiden with Dianno. It says "Rock Pop" in the corner of the screen.

VK'S Notes
This is by far the best Van Halen show of all time, the recording is not the greatest in the world but still a solid B and very listenable. I am almost driven to tears when I listen to this because this is one of the very last shows that Diamond Dave performed with Van Halen and this is the best Van Halen show of all time, if not the greatest show ever. They went out in a blaze of glory, without a doubt! Also this is one of the very last apperences of Eddie's infamous 'Brown Sound'. If you are a Van Halen fan, even a casual Van Halen fan, you must download this show!

Elton John did not perform many shows in 1977, but among the ones that he did, were 6 stripped down "solo" performances at the Rainbow Theatre during the first week of May. The exact details of this recording are a little hard to pinpoint online, due to the fact that there are several different dates listed; depending on what site you go to. I have seen it listed as May 2nd and May 13th, but according to a few pretty accurate Elton tour schedules that I came across, he did not play at all on the 13th. Many of what seem to be the most creditable sources that I found, state that this recording is from May 7th, 1977...which would make it the last night of the Rainbow Theatre run.

The show is ballad heavy, but pretty amazing considering that the entire performance is just Elton and his piano; with Ray Cooper accompanying him with percussion on several tracks. The sound quality is great; some very minor hiss and the occasional minor "pop" here and there...but overall superb.
