notes by the taper
I must say that this is one of the best shows I have ever witnessed. This is my 5th time seeing the band since the 1970's, and by far the best one yet! I was moved to tears on several occasions, mostly by the presence and voice of Christine McVie. The band is once again intact and firing on all cylinders! I could not have planned for a better audience around us, simply beautiful taping conditions. The sound system and mix were perfect!! This is a very accurate representation of the evening's events.

JEMS is pleased to release the sixth in a series of recordings made by legendary taper Mike Millard, AKA Mike the MICrophone, best known for his masters of Led Zeppelin in and around LA circa 1975-77. 

The 14 first-generation tapes (ten cassettes and four reels) were sent by Millard to SG, the beloved S in JEMS, in the mid-'80s after the pair had met in person in Orange County on two occasions. To the best of our knowledge, none of the eight shows (spanning the 14 tapes) has ever been attributed as a Millard recording. In fact, there are no extant references we are aware of to Millard ever recording Bob Dylan or Bruce Springsteen, the two artists captured on the tapes. 

Several of the tapes are uncirculated; others are out there, but until now, not credited as Millard's work. Even those that turn out to be previously circulated are being released in this series from verified first-generation tapes made by Millard himself and marked/ notated in his signature manner. As such, we expect all of them to be upgrades at a minimum and new sources in many cases. 

At this point you might be asking yourself, "So if JEMS received these Millard tapes in the mid-'80s, why haven't they circulated previously?" Fair question. And in condensed form, here is the answer, which also provides the "Lost" portion of our series title: 

Twenty-six years ago, Millard sent SG a box of tapes. I remember having it my hands in 1986 at SG's house, right after it arrived in the mail. But that was the last time I ever saw the box. It disappeared. Nearly all of SG's tapes have since been consolidated into the JEMS North archive, but we never found the box of Millard tapes. Over the years, my memory faded of what was in the box. I thought there were Springsteen shows, but that fuzzy notion was all I could recall. 

Now to the "Found": Several months ago, WG, a long-time collector friend of SG, contacted him and said, "I found a box of tapes of yours when I was moving furniture." Sure enough it was the Millard tapes and more. Turns out WG borrowed the tapes and some other SG masters after a Dylan show in 1986 and the box wound up misplaced and forgotten about by both parties, only to be rediscovered 28 years later. 

Once the box was returned, SG sent it to me at JEMS South where we proceeded to make fresh transfers of its contents. 

If there's any mildly disappointing element to this otherwise charming story, it is that none of the lost Millard tapes are of previously uncirculated shows; there are other recordings by other tapers of all of them. But the good news is the quality of most of them is indeed up to Millard's legendary standards. 

The cache of lost Millard tapes included six Dylan and three Springsteen shows. Of the three Bruce recordings, one already circulates and another is of an '81 show well captured by the legendary (he won't like that word, but its true) Mark Persic. 

That puts our attention on this welcome addition, an outstanding, epic-length River show filled with special moments. Brucebase lists two recording sources for the show, one an incomplete tape missing several songs and a second that's "complete, but not known to be in general circulation." We presume Millard's recording to be that uncirculated complete source, as he captures nearly every second of the performance. 

A whopping 17 River tracks feature here, including the premiere of "Fade Away," with a lovely and lilting intro, the last song from the album to enter the setlist. It comes one night after the premiere of "The Price You Pay," but that was with the original album lyrics. Tonight, for the first time, Springsteen restores his original third verse ("some say forget the past…") from early in the River sessions and later replaced for the take on the album. The song is performed in a striking acoustic guitar and accordion arrangement. 

As if that weren't enough, out of the blue Springsteen resurrects what we (and even he) now call "Prove It All Night '78." The long guitar and piano intro here is mesmerizing and for me this is a "Prove It" for the ages. After playing it this way again two days later on closing night of the LA stand, Springsteen wouldn't revisit "Prove It All Night '78" again until 2012. 

Another short-lived element that shines this evening is Chuck Berry's "No Money Down" used as a long intro to "Cadillac Ranch" to start the second set. Bruce hams it up for a highly entertaining preamble that really gets "Caddy" started. In the encore, pal Jackson Browne takes the stage for the tour's only and Bruce's last known ESB performance of another Chuck Berry cover, "Sweet Little Sixteen." The "Detroit Medley" also includes a very brief attempt at "Wabash Cannonball," but even Bruce admits: "Hold on a minute, band, let's try that one more time, because I don't have it yet. Give me that E again. Not only do I not have, I think we're gonna forget it," and back into "I Hear a Train" they go. 

Again, like our recent release, That Old '80 Sound, if you love The River, this is a show for yo;, but unlike Seattle, Springsteen ups the ante slipping in a few favorites not visited in the Emerald City: "For You," the always welcome "Candy's Room," and for me, an especially motivated "Backstreets." 

As for the work of the esteemed Mike Millard, the recording doesn't match heady heights of his absolutely best work, like our recent Dylan posts on DIME and THOSE Led Zeppelin tapes from the Forum. He's not right on top of the PA as he so often is and the tape needed more work in mastering than a Millard tape typically requires (none of the Dylan titles in our recent series was materially mastered). 

That being said, the more I worked on the tape the more I liked it. And the more I listened, the more I understood what a fantastic show I was polishing. Bruce is giving his all in this marathon and 34 years later, it absolutely holds up. Samples provided. 

The recording equipment listed is an educated guess based verified gear he was using at other shows in the same period. While Mike marked many of his tapes with such details, on this one he didn't, though we did include photos of the cassettes on which Mike did his distinct labeling. 

If you'd like to learn more about Mike the MICrophone, the links below offer a glimpse of his story.

Thanks again to WG for finding the tapes and to SG for providing JEMS with another fascinating chapter of taping history. Also, JEMS couldn't live without the contributions of our pal and your benefactor mjk5510. He is now an essential part of getting these recordings into your hands. 

Here's to the late, great Mike the MICrophone and to finding more lost tapes.

Better sound then usual from the 2nd to last row at the local giaganta dome. Lots of people showing up late & leaving early, a little bit of some crowd pushing past me noise during some of the quiet bits.
Stevie was having a great time it seemed, my 1st time seeing him, hopefully I'll get another change, thoroughly enjoyed myself!

Still losing my wi-fi connction, I'll be back as soon as I can when I drop off seeding.

The band was enormous... a string section, generous horn section, two sets of backup singers, various keyboard players, guitars, bass drums and percussionists. The show had some sound issues... vocals and keyboards too low in the mix, and overbearingly thumping bass. I am not sure why a major market like New York was chosen as the first performance, instead of working out the kinks in a smaller city. But none of that stopped the sold-out crowd from having a blast. I have never left a Stevie Wonder show without a smile and without unconsciously singing some of his tunes and this was no exception. India Arie escorted Stevie on Stage and shared some of the vocal chores, and did several other singers.

notes by the trader
When I made my copy of my VHS in the early 90's on the special ultra high grade tape that I bought, I think I used an outboard graphic EQ unit to enhance the sound from my old trade buddy's 2nd generation HiFi stereo VHS tape. He made his copy directly HiFi VHS to HiFi VHS from his buddy's VHS tape that he bought in the mail from the filmer. I don't know why "Who's To Blame?" is edited out of this copy. It was like that on the original source tape that my friend's friend got in the mail. It appears to exist "out there" somewhere because it is listed on artwork that I have collected online. If you have a better and / or more complete copy of this show on video please share it, because it won't be coming out sourced from the master tapes anytime soon. The story goes that the filmer was busted by the feds for also dabbling in video piracy as well as his concert video business, and they decided to make an example of him and sieze all of his master tapes of all his videos for pirating Hollywood masterpieces such as Batman! 

There was still some room on the disc after all the Detroit show was on it, so I added a filler track that was a filler on a Robert Plant 1988 VHS video I got in another trade. The song is incomplete on my video tape, but the sound seems better to me than the complete version of the show on DVD that is circulating. 

Some "found" artwork is included. There's a slipcover for a VHS bootleg, and art for an audio CD version of the show. If you are any good at making artworx covers for this disc, please share them in the comments, and if you could email them to me as well that would be great! The included md5 checksums need to be moved into the VIDEO_TS folder in order to work (unless you know how to tell your checker how to deal with that). I looked up the bitrate info with GSpot. 

I used the functions of the DVD recorder to make track index points for each "song" in the show on the "master" DVDRW. Using a rewriteable disc allows for some editing and titling to be done. The manual says once all the edits are done that it then finalizes the disc so that it can be copied to a computer and re-burned to a standard DVD-r (or DVD+r if that's what you need) (were these DVD-RW or DVD+RW anyway??? Hmmm...) so, these files / folders burn fine like any other disc you get here! The "master" rewriteable disc also has this "VIDEO_RM" folder that I'm NOT including in this torrent. It's the extra data that the standalone needs before it finalizes the disc and is only used during the editing on MY recorder. It's un-needed, but it could be included in a freshly burned disc (because I made a DVD-r with it included and it plays fine). Or not. I don't think it does anything anymore. Your DVD player should ignore that folder. But, it contains a file that is a .DAT file, and DIME has rules against it, so I've definitely got to omit the VIDEO_RM folder and its contents (which are not needed anyhow to make a functioning DVD disc). I also have all the info and pre-existing coverart inside the "EXTRAS_TS" folder that you should be including in your burned discs to include and embed all the art and info on your disc with the video! 

Again, if you have a better version of this show, please share it! I believe that the master tapes of this show have been "lost" so any good low generational sources are most likely as good as it's gonna get! This version of this show is 3 tape gens down from the "master" (although it's 3 generations made with care!) and there's a bad edit of a missing song. Perhaps someone out there has a tape bought from the taper that doesn't have the edit that this one does? Bring it out! If a colour scan of a VHS bootleg slipcover exists there must be a better source of this show out there, but since I've never seen one shared, I'll put this copy out... Maybe it will make an upgrade come to light!

Comments :
A silver CD that I came along searching the Polish version of eBay, called Allegro. The one thing that caught my eye was the recording from 28 September 1979, since I haven't seen it anywhere else ever, so I just had to buy it. I'm glad I did, because it seems like it's a new source and, generally, a new recording.

Recorded 14 April 1969 Royal Festival Hall. Most copies of this performance in circulation are taken from a recording which is cut during this section. This is the complete segment via an alternative audience recorded source. From a mouldy old cassette with a drum heavy sound.

3. Breathe (reprise)
Recorded December 1971/Janauary 1972? Very early instrumental version from a lyricless run-through rehearsal.
