Just received another fantastic AC/DC Tarantula release. This one is Bon Scott era and came out in 2013. According to the sleeve art, it's taken "from Radio Broadcast Soundboard Master Reels". I would imagine this is an actual pre-fm source. Great packaging, once again, and pristine sound quality. 

Probably not complete as "Girls Got Rhythm", "TNT" and "If You Want Blood" were in the set at around the time this show was played. At least one, and possibly two, of those songs were left out of this broadcast, imho.

Track listing (62:02):

Sound quality for this acoustic show is outstanding, and the performance is great -- a loose, fun show with lots of audience interaction and primarily covers. If I remember correctly, this show was done as a thank you for all of the support that WMMR had given JCM during his early career, and particularly for the "American Fool" breakthrough album he was still promoting at the time. Hardcore Mellencamp fans already have this, though perhaps not in this lineage; even casual fans will want to give this a try, however.

FLAC fingerprint and MD5 verification files are included. 

It was discovered (thanks to weedwacker and TMP) before torrenting that several tracks each contained one very brief instance of digi buzz/noise and the noise was confirmed to be on the silvers. The offending tracks: Celebration Day, The Wanton Song, and In The Light had the noise manually removed by weedwacker. No cutting was done to the files so no sbes were created. The tracks were decompressed to WAV, corrected, and reflac'd. These fixed tracks are now torrented here.

Peter Holsapple joined the band on stage for Neverland. The first of two soundboard recordings from consecutive nights at the I&I Club.

These recordings originally came from "a respected author and journalist" who made a cassette copy for another a respected author and journalist" around ten years ago. The recordings were cleaned up in Cool Edit Pro sorting out a couple of tracks which were split, had gaps etc. They were I think orignally seeded on the now defunct dedicated REM tracker.

This has never been one of the best-sounding Springsteen soundboards, but it always seems to find its way into every Bruce fan's collection. This particular version was posted by "lilpanda" in March 2008, and is the first and only time I've seen it with documented lineage -- there have been various bootlegs over the years which are probably sourced from higher-generation, more questionable sources than this. I can't compare the quality across the various releases, but this was certainly an improvement over the cassette I traded for in the 1990s. Hopefully this will be an upgrade for some.

I received these files from a collector friend in the last couple of days. It sounds to me like Animals has been taken from an improved copy of the source used for the earlier 'Extraction Tapes' vinyl release. Sources appear to have been speed corrected.

Unfortunately I don't have artwork, other than that I've found on the web and embedded into the FLACs. 

Sound is way better than the vinyl transfers I've heard. All in all an amazing release.

Changes Made (Nero 7):
Noise Print NR, removed most of the noise, but some remains on the right channel
Cross-mixed all tracks (87:13)
Slight treble lift to match original
Cut the silence between 05>6 & 02-3
Cross-faded several tracks to smooth transitions
Fixed glitches at 5.27 (r06), 0.50 (r07), 2.44 (r02), 1.30 (05)
Left channel reduction by 3% (disk1) 5-10% (disk 2) to centre stereo image
Fixed left channel offset in the first 2min of 01
Fixed volume level shifts on several tracks, 2sec - 2min.

Transfer: shn > mkw > Nero > Flac Fontend (level 6)

Quality: A++

The original - posted specifically to encourage remastering - is great sounding but very raw, with significant noise and hum, plus (as mentioned in the original comments) some phasing which makes the instruments / singing indistinct.

As I started to edit, it was obvious that the noise print is representative of FM with the multiplex filter at 19-20khz clearly visible, so with Phil's comments during the show about broadcasting live to hospitals, I can only assume that the noise is due to the FM distribution of the concert, with very little contributed by the SBD.

Details of the work I did are above, the key resulting improvements being...
- Significantly less noise / hum, although a little remains just on the RH channel
- Instrument dynamics are clearer / punchier
- Phil's voice / diction is clearer
- Steve's playing (low in the mix at times) can now be heard

Overall, I would rate this significantly higher than other (Genesis-Movement) A+ rated
1977 shows such as Sao Paulo and Zurich Revisited...

...Hope you enjoy it too !!

HRV notes:
I dare to say that this is the most spectacular upgrade we ever did from an original Harvested weed. Moreover, the resulting Rev.A is, in our view, the de-fi-ni-ti-ve RoIO from Roger's 1999 U.S. Tour! The original Harvested release used the famous soundboard recording from the Camden show (apparently the only SBD source to have surfaced from the 1999 tour), patching the very end of Comfortably Numb with an audience recording from the same era (but not from the Camden concert). This SBD recording has a lot of good aspects: sound is very clear, and there's a lot of brightness, especially for acoustic instruments. Guitar solos have a real sharpness, every "attack" of each note can be heard. Also, vocals are upfront, revealing a lot of details that most audience recordings miss. However, I always found it difficult to really enjoy that Camden SBD source (I never succeeded listening to it more than 30 minutes at a time). The fact is that it misses good and deep low end. Sound is rather cold and flat. The fact that it's almost pure mono is also a weak point, because we miss the stereo perspective of the show. I had in my collection a superb mastertape audience recording from the Camden show (BTW big thanks to Arne!). This AUD source has excellent bass, deep and warm, and also very good stereo perspective. It was recorded from a seat near the rear speakers, so it is the perfect counterpart to the SBD source (which is more "front speakers" oriented).

The idea of the 'Rev A' was to upgrade the original SBD weed, with a completely new mix, combining the best aspects of each source, in order to get a result with both brightness and warm sound. It was a real challenge and the process was very slow and difficult, mainly because the two sources had to be perfectly synchronised, and also because I had to find the perfect balance between the two. I did the synchronisation and balance, then Ed came in the process, mainly for quality assurance and also to carefully reduce the hiss at some places, without degrading the sound clarity. Now that the remastering is complete, we're very proud of the result. There's a feeling of "being there", with stereo perspective and good and deep low end, thanks to the AUD source. There's also a lot of details and brightness thanks to the SBD recording. An interesting point is the intro of Money. The SBD source misses some of the cash register noises, due to the distribution of these noises through the quadraphonic system. By combining SBD and AUD sources, the cash register noises are more complete, and there's also a stereo perspective. Similar things can be said for the "Hello... Would you like a cup of coffee?" at the beginning of "Every Strangers Eyes", echoed through the hall. One of the most impressive improvements from original weed, is the stereo perspective, e.g. during the synth parts of Welcome To The Machine.
And the very end of Comfortably Numb is now truely from the Camden show (the audience patch used for the end of CN on the original Harvested release was not).

To summarise, we think this Rev.A of "In The Flesh Tour '99" is probably the most enjoyable recording from the 1999 Tour. Play it loud on a good equipment, and maybe you'll even like this recording better than the official "In The Flesh" release, which by the way is taken from the following year, and therefore does not contain What God Wants Part 1 and The Powers That Be.

If anyone has the SBD version of the complete encore, please upload this! In the meantime, we plan on uploading the complete audience recording soon.

Another excellent recording from the 2000 tour. Lots of great banter and a very solid performance on this one, and the quality is awesome!

Additional comments (2013):
This one is a great-sounding complete soundboard from their triumphant 2000 tour. If only this tour had signaled the beginning of another long run at the top; after John Entwistle's unfortunate demise in late 2002, this string of shows leaves us with just a tease of what could have been. Great performance all around, and a great setlist. This one is complete and documents the band at top form. Well worth having even for a casual fan.

Note that the last three tracks of disc two (which comprise the encore in full) are not from the master soundboard source. They are in mono, but from a direct source nonetheless. It's likely they originate from an in-house video soundtrack, though I can't confirm this.

With the above caveat out of the way, it's an absolute pleasure to present another blistering show from the 2000 tour in pristine quality. What separates this recording from many others is that it hasn't been widely circulated. I'm pleased to present, for quite likely the first time in public domain, this wonderful show...and what better venue for its release than a site sanctioned by Pete Townshend himself. Those who have heard this show already know what a treat it is; those who will be hearing it for the first time will no doubt enjoy it time and time again. It's simply another rare gem that is finally, and rightfully, seeing the light of day. As always, enjoy!!!

From the
A whole lotta love for Plant at Robert's-
Where does Robert Plant party after he plays Nashville? Why, Robert's, of course. Plant, of Led Zeppelin fame, rocked out for 2½ hours on the Ryman stage Wednesday night. He danced, he laughed, he joked, he closed with Whole Lotta Love. The Ryman folks hustled him out the secret exit into the secret van, which was taking a secret route to a secret hotel when … it turned around a half block later. Seems Plant wanted to go honky-tonkin' and he ended up at Robert's Western World on Lower Broadway, a mere guitar pick toss away from the Ryman. His fans were a bit zany, so Robert's top floor was closed off for Plant and his posse of Brits, many of whom live in Nashville. Even so, Plant enjoyed the house band, getting up and dancing during several songs and mingling with his peeps. He ended his stay at the honky-tonk the same way he ended his Ryman show: "Y'all come back and see us again." Sounds particularly bizarre with an English accent.
