01 - Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before 
02 - Disappointed 
03 - Interesting Drug

05 - The Last Of The Famous International Playboys 
06 - Sister I'm A Poet 
07 - Death At One's Elbow 
08 - Sweet And Tender Hooligan 

Notes from 
This first solo Morrissey show was also meant as a farewell Smiths concert. The musicians backing Morrissey were ex-Smiths Mike Joyce and Andy Rourke, as well as once Smiths #5 Craig Gannon filling in as guitarist. The setlist was a mix of Morrissey tracks with Smiths tracks from 1987, so nothing that had been  performed in front of a live audience before. The Smiths song were actually  never played live since either. Admission was free to anyone wearing a Morrissey shirt, but most people turned up with Smiths shirts and were still admitted. Only half of fans who traveled to Wolverhampton made it inside the venue. Outside the queuing and organisation almost turned to chaos. The atmosphere inside was obviously very charged. There was a great deal of cheering and chanting Morrissey's name to the English football tune. Throughout the short set, many fans made it on stage, much more than for a typical Smiths concert. 

Morrissey came on stage to a thunder of applause, after a long period of cheering and chanting. In the first song, "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before", he sang "And so I drank one, or was it four?" instead of "... it became four". He actually sang that line as it had been originally written and not as it appeared on "Strangeways Here We Come". Before "Interesting Drug" which was yet unreleased and unknown to the fans, Morrissey started "This song is called..." but never finished his line. In that song as in the previous one, "Disappointed", Morrissey missed many lines because of the mayhem with the fans keeping him away from his microphone. 

Just before "Suedehead", Mike Joyce teased the fans with a few notes of the drum intro to "The Queen Is Dead", but that song was not to be played. Morrissey changed a line in "Suedehead" to "Oh so many blank pages" instead of "oh som many illustrations". He also sang "I'm so very saddened, oh, I am so sickened NOW". Before "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys" Morrissey started "I'd like to say hello..." but didn't finish his line and simply introduced the next song. 

Before "Death At One's Elbow" Morrissey managed to say what he had originally meant to: "I'd like to say hello to Julian and hello to Mouse.... your mother's letter arrived today, she has a good hand...". In that song Morrissey changed a line from "you'll slip on the trail of my bespattered remains" to "you'll slip on the trail of all of my entrails". After that number and its final lines "Goodbye my love, goodbye my love", Morrissey just said "goodbye" and everyone left the stage. They were called back with much insistence and performed one more song, a very rocking "Sweet And Tender Hooligan".

Duran Duran - 1994 - Demo's Thank You (STU/FLAC)

(Studio FLAC)

Info below is from Duran Duran Wiki:

With Love And Thanks is an unofficial Duran Duran compilation album, recorded between 1992 and 1995.

This is a collection of Duran Duran Thank You demos and live promotional performances.

"White Lines"
There are three versions of "White Lines" on the album, including a performance by Duran Duran on the US David Letterman Show. According to the Duran Duran Rare CD Guide site, the band were told at the last minute to cut down the song due to time constraints.

"Ball of Confusion"
The track is an uncensored version, with the lyrics "Politicians..Can You xxxxxxx believe them?"

"Perfect Day"
Track 3 is a recording very similar to the album version, but includes John Taylor singing backing vocals. The second version of "Perfect Day" and "Crystal Ship" (Acoustic) are from Simon Mayo's BBC Radio 1 breakfast show, aired in the UK. This performance on the Simon Mayo show also included an acoustic live version of "Ordinary World", which was released on the "White Lines" single CD and "Lay Lady Lay" Italian single.

"Thank You"
This is not the With Honors demo version, but a completely different recording.

"Plastic Girl"
The track is a live recording of Duran Duran's performance on the MTV Most Wanted show.

Bonus tracks:
"Dreamboy" and "Electric Barbarella" are not Thank You songs. "Dreamboy" is a Simon Le Bon solo song, recorded live at the Cannes Film Festival. The "Electric Barbarella" track 16 is a recording of a radio performance, and the Plastic Kiss Acoustic Mix is a re-edit of track 16.

Before the show, some of the ecstatic crowd mobbed the band, who apparently were bitten by mosquitoes on stage all night long! 
After a few days rest, Freddie's voice is in great shape for this show.
While Spike plays the intro to 'I Want To Break Free', Freddie joking asks, "Is this where I wear the funny dress?"
On the final fanfare of the song, John Deacon plays some pretty and melodic lines on his bass.
After the 'Impromptu' they attempt about a minute of Led Zeppelin's 'Immigrant Song'.
Obviously unrehearsed (Freddie barely knows the words), they take a good enough stab at it!
After the first verse of 'Hello Mary Lou', Freddie says to one of his bandmates, "See, they're clapping on the off-beat."

This is one of the best-sounding recordings from the tour. It's a bit distant, so the audience is often prominent in the sound. 'Gypsy Eye' EQ'd their version to bring out a bit more of the top end.

- new release 12/30/2014 (Tuesday!)!
- this is some very nice quality from the real classic GN'R! if you're looking for a sweet little version out of the 40 (or so) circulating GN'R/Ritz'88 better get this one!
Near mint promo vhs, very high quality equipment and settings have been used for the transfer and editing. Also exact transfer details known (more on that little later as, writing this info right now, i'm short in time).
- HUGE thanks to Troccoli [], the owner from this nice promo vhs, thank you a lot for borrowing and all the waiting time!!!! Thanks a lot to "Rockphantom" for helping out with Westwood One silvers!
- no official audio/video in the menus or within the show
- intro + menu audio = parts from some more rare drum machine demos; Nightrain, Mr. Brownstone, Sweet Child O' Mine (Pasha 8/1986), all speed corrected.
- no commercials within the show
- no tv logo within the show
- no logos within the show!
- motion menus included
- show ticket, promo vhs pic and nice stage pic included in the intro/menus
- video dED: image centering, 4x black borders editing, small brightness fixing, +1% sharpness filter. no color editing, they're already sooo nice as they are.
- audio dED: just synching, crossfading, fading in/out, volume adjustment, NO EQ!
- about the audio: there doesnt seem to be a full unedited version, all the different copies do have edits here and there. even the "unedited VHS" circulating has a few "F-word-edits".
it appears that Westwood One did multitracks from the show and, in post-show-editing, turned down the volume from the vocal track for the F-words. as a result those parts couldnt be fixed perfectly and will stay so until some high quality release, re-broadcast or leak will happen (which is very unlikely).
also it seems that they did mix the show/band in mono but added stereo fan audio with different sound volume on the different releases. that also couldnt be crossfaded perfectly, you still can hear that in some parts, but nothing to do about.
- there is about 1-2 seconds video trouble in the middle end of "Rocket Queen" (at 56:48) and could not be fixed - but it isnt disturbing at all as no frames got lost, and its wayyyy better than on the Version #1/SA XP transfer (for possible upcoming bootlegs from this "free fan release"....this would be the part for verifying the source)
- this was a very time consuming project. i needed 7(!) seperate transfers to get the best (= this!) one out of this more than 26 years old vhs!
- Mama Kin is not on the Promo VHS, this "bonus clip" is sourced from an unedited VHS (lower quality) SA SP transfer but mainly overdubbed with Westwood One audio,
this song originally was played before Rocket Queen.
- This is freeware!
- There are 3 versions from this promo vhs:
Version 1 = SA XP transfer with compressed vhs audio and wrong resolution video, this is circulating for many months
Version 2 = +1% Sharpness (= this one!)
Version 3 = No Sharpness (to be released January 06 (Tuesday!!), 2015 on the gnr tracker)

Fillmore West (M1-AUD) 

Recording Information ::: 
unknown equipment -> master audience tape -> 1st generation TDK SA-90 cassette, Dolby B on. NOTE: Such incredible variation between channels I originally thought this must be stereo, but realised it was mostly extreme volume adjustments. Maybe built-in mikes in reel-to-reel machine & very, very narrow stereo but just not my field of expertise. Many hours of work evened it up quite a bit. 

Playback 2011-08-10 ::: 
1st generation TDK SA-90 cassette on Nakamichi BX-300 cassette deck, Dolby B on, azimuth & pitch adjusted, heads cleaned & demagnatized -> Tascam CD-RW900SL pro CD recorder -> CD-RW -> computer, EAC secure -> wavs -> Audacity (fades &/or glitches, dropouts, volume adjustments, microphone bumps, claps, no EQ) -> CD Wave (track splits) -> Trader's Little Helper -> yer ears.

07. Rattlesnake Shake -> Underway ( -> ? ) 
08. Oh Well 
09. Madison Blues// (cuts after 3:15) 

Total Time ::: 58:05 

- Quality ain't too shabby but for some fan noise (see below). Check the samples & dance the Greeny way if you so choose. 
- PLEASE NOTE: Came labeled 1969-01-17, but is surely 1969-01-19 as Peter says, "This is our last night playing for you" & thanks the audience "very, very, very much". 
- Warts : Something like a fan in the vicinity of the microphone is a bit odd in some of the quiet bits, but overall, I think yer needs will be quite satisfied regardless. There are 20 seconds of volume overload at the beginning of track 4. Levels are somewhat erratic & I tried to fix them. The taper adjusts them, sometimes the channels were adjusted separately, then turned up quite loud while Peter is speaking between songs, then didn't always get turned back down - mostly all fixed.

My Notes by the trader:
This is strictly a remaster of the 1st tape source,no patches to complete tracks or plantations have been added.I know that whenever my friends and I have put together a project for the community,we like to make a project as complete as possible, but there is a reason why we've remastered and posted the first tape source on it's own.It's quite a long and detailed story though, so I'll spare everyone the details, and just post my notes about this recording.I've always liked the "Front Row" source, it may be a little muddy in some places,and the boot labels have amplified it a little too hot, but there are moments in the recording that really shine, like "Stairway To Heaven",the acoustic set, and "Whole Lotta Love" (Especially when the band gets into "Tobacco Road").

What we've done to this recording:
- We've reduced the "Hotness" of the recording, and have tried to make it sound easier on the ears.
- We've tried to balance the instruments and the acoustics as much as possible.
- We've reduced as much tape hiss as possible.
- We've tried to bring out things that were buried in the recording (crowd cheers,clapping,commentary).

Notes from original source of this recording:
Will and I packed up the gear at the What Stage after Red Hot Chili Peppers and hauled ass to That Tent to catch this show. We only missed a couple songs. We actually heard "I'm Eighteen" walking up. We moved into the crowd outside the tent and I used my old guy skills to get us inside and up to the soundboard rail where Randy had his rig set up. Only show I saw that I didn't tape. But we had a blast.
Randy doesn't upload so he sent me this show via DropBox and I did all the busy work to share it. The recording is fantastic. Church Audio comes through again. Nice work, Randy.

Another memorable night in my life as a concert-goer. Maiden tend to do that to you. ;-) 
Made the mistake of relying on a buddy of mine to get tickets for the Montreal show, which he failed to do, so I called a friend in T.O. who managed to get pretty good seats there. I ended up doing a little road trip which is always fun. Haven't been to the ACC in awhile and I gotta say I was not impressed with the sound, at least in the beginning. Every other time I've seen Maiden the sound's been much clearer and crisp. It got better after the first few songs though and it was quite listenable, as you can hear from the recording. The energy from the band was great as always. Crowd was very good too. You can hear the usual "singers", as expected at every Maiden or Alice In Chains show, singing along to choruses and favourite melodic sections. All part of the fun atmosphere. Hope you enjoy listening to this recording as much as we enjoyed seeing the live show.

Great show ( but short ) by the GREAT Alice Cooper .Not much to say , it's Alice ! The band as always was very tight and packed full of talent . One thing I will say is Orianthi really impressed me .... she can tear it up ! Alice always finds the BEST talent .

JEMS master recording. This is an excellent sounding recording. This show captures Jethro Tull touring in support of their War Child album. This recording has circulated for years but this is the first time the master reels have ever been properly digitized (April 2010). This is an excellent show and performance with an early taste of an excerpt of Minstrel In The Gallery which would not be released until later in 75. Ian's in between song banter at this show is as entertaining if not more entertaining than music. Also of note this show took place on the 25th of July not the 27th as some other sources have speculated in the past. 

1. Create stereo image. 
2. Adjust Tonality/EQ.
