Fleetwood Mac - 1977-08-25 - Las Vegas, NV (SBD/FLAC)



(Suondboard FLAC)

Fleetwood Mac - Mega-rare restored vinyl "Sin City 77" Alladin Center For The Performing Arts, Las Vegas 1977-08-25 Top ten FM show in excellent quality! (mp3 sample included)

The old guy returns for a while...

This is in my opinion one of the finest Fleetwood Mac shows ever put on tape. Not only are you getting the group in its prime while riding high on the "Rumours" tour, you are getting a heartfelt, genuine performance as well. The entire group is at peak, with Stevie Nicks as a standout. She has never sounded better. She catapults both "Dreams" and particularly "Rhiannon" into the stars. The girl is on fire, and it shows.

Although labeled as "Mega-rare", this double boot LP along with the Jethro Tull title "A Sack Full Of Trousersnakes" sold out very quickly and was repressed several times. This torrent is taken from a nearly mint first edition on Dragonfly Records. But even if you have this album, your humble seeder believes you have never heard it properly. All copies of this show ran just fast enough to make the performance sound a little sick. I've corrected the speed to make the the album pitch properly. Even though this was just by a small amount, it makes a huge difference in the sound quality.

This album is labeled "entire concert". Well, maybe it is and maybe it isn't. I have heard that "Monday Morning" may in fact have been played and isn't on this two-record set.

I'll be dropping in soon with more goodies already in the oven.

notes by the taper
I am compiling this file the day after the show, my whole body is still hurting somehow and I am going back tonight. I don’t know if I can ATTEND 3 shows like this in a row! - how can they PLAY 3 shows in a row is beyond me :) It really was fantastic; I am obsessed with Disintegration so this setlist was like a dream. And I hear they change A LOT from night to night. Robert sounded great! And I felt he got sort of emotional - whoever was there should second this or not… Anyway - I was long past-due for some serious Cure-run - and I am overcompensating! As always, many thanks to BLG for mastering.

Length: 2hrs, 38mins 

Notes: 
What a fantastic concert. This show was just pure joy. A beautiful tapestry of sound was woven this night at the world's most famous arena and I was lucky enough to be in attendance. My only regret is that I did not attend the first two shows of this three night MSG stand. 

This was my 7th show recorded with my trusty Nokia Lumia Icon Windows Phone and, once again, I think the results are rather damn good. The built-in HAAC mics can stand up to 140db without distorting the recording and there are no levels to set. You can't go wrong AND you don't have to worry about sneaking in 'equipment'. Some 'on the fly' splits: after track 04, after track 08, after track 12, after track 17, after track 18, all encores. I then used Audacity to split the large WAV files recorded into single tracks. Some drunken comments pre-show (track 00) and post-show (track 33) that you can feel free to delete.

NOTES by the taper:
I tried my best at tracking this according to setlist.fm. During the last couple of songs (She Loves You and My Girl) my group and I started moving towards the back, so the sound gets a little faded and quiet. Oh well, it is what it is. Overall a great set and a great way to end the festival weekend.

I have seen a version of this running around with about 1/3 of it missing, and if you are going to get this you might as well go complete. So here is that source. The drums are a bit tinny for my taste, and due to the mix I would bet the taper is on Sting's side of the stage (bass and all vocals cut through clear, drums aren't so bad, but the guitar is buried most in the mix). It is all here save for a few seconds of the ending of Murder By Numbers being gone. This one isn't the best from this tour, but once you get a few others I don't think you will be too let down provided you don't treat this as a holy grail.

Frank Zappa - 1981-11-25 - Detroit, MI (AUD/FLAC)

1981 11 25 Detroit MI 137.09 AUD 1st (Drew51#2-flambay) 

this is the last of these: (Drew51#2-flambay). 

The last time this show was posted here in any version was by Adictedttull in March '11: 

Frank Zappa 1981 11 25 - Cobo Hall, Detroit, MI MC Aud (JS Doctorzap) 

That version has since been archived at zappateers. 

Nothing on this date has been commercially released, according to Information Is Not Knowledge (IINK): http://globalia.net/donlope/fz/index.html 

Nothing has been altered or changed. The .ffp data are consistent with that on the zappateers site. The original setlist remains in the download folder. Because of the show's length, if you are predisposed to still use CD-Rs, this show will require 2. 

I have include 2 samples below as well as, for your entertainment (even if you choose to bypass grabbing this show), the "Detroit Farewell." 

Later, I may be uploading another version of the four left above later.

We are approaching the end, after 10 years of Special Series, so I wanted top bring something from my archives which is a kind of special. This is a rare, complete, recording of Kate's only show in Paris, during her 1979 tour. This was held at the rather elegant Theatre des Champs-Élysées in avenue Montaigne. I got this one about 20 years ago from a friend who got a copy from the taper. All I could know is that the equipment he recorded the show was not the most modern one but I think this is a nice sounding recording for 1979.

The setlist is not a surprise since it did not change during the whole tour, but of course playing the Gymnopedie in the country of Satie was a kind of special.

I would rate the sound of this as 7/10, a bit hissy but on the other side the audience is not heard a lot and not disturbing the performance.

I was able to have my recorder resting on the steps in the aisle, as no one really was behind me. There was 1 couple and the guy was a loud clapper at times but not that big of a deal.

TOTAL: 49:36 min. 

Please note, that this torrent is NOT from the old 1979/1980 „LAST RAVE-UP IN LA“ triple vinyl album bootleg box or any other bootleg CDs but from a 2nd or 3rd. gen. off-the-master source. The first night’s show was taped in total, the second night obviously only partially. 

I also still have the vinyl bootleg which was one of my earliest unofficial collectibles in my collection, and cost me a fortune when I purchased it in Dec. 1980. Never regretted it, though. FYI, for their release, the bootleggers wisely replaced the aborted “New York City Blues” from the 1st night with the version from the second, and added two tracks from the 2nd night that were not played on the first night (I AIN’T DONE WRONG and OVER UNDER SIDEWAYS DOWN). 

Legend has it that the taper had his then pregnant girl-friend smuggle his tape machine into the venue underneath her wide skirt. Cool – well done, baby (both of you!). The taper is reputed to have entered serious music business, later. 

The sound quality has long been known as pretty rough (to say the least), but this here is as good as it gets I think, and better at least than the numerous the bootlegs that were all made from higher generation copies.

Axl Rose was filling in for Brian Johnson who had to leave the world tour due to hearing difficulties. I was very tempted to apply for a refund on my ticket when this was announced but I must admit Axl Rose performed much better than I was expecting. The set list had a major reshuffle since their last trip to the U.K. with much more Bon Scott era material and they played for nearly 2 1/4 hours.
