This must be one of the first DSD bootleg around, and it's a surprisingly clear audience. DSD is a (not so) recent hi definition audio format used for production, and now available also for portable recorders. The original DFF files are amazing, but I am not sure that a lot of people could be able to play them through a DSD DAC. If there is enough request I may consider to seed the originals.

These have all been deleted in this merge.?- Only "Red House", "All Along The Watchtower" and "Hey Joe" are taken from the VHS video.?- The Audience recording contains the most accurate atmosphere of the actual concert and thus the merge has been built around it.?- Only the end of "Freedom", "Foxy Lady" and the beginning of "Purple Haze" are missing on the Aud source.?- The Space mix has no fake audience noises but has ugly reverb added to it (hence 'space' mix). This source has been used as 'in between song banter' filler - especially on the parts not recorded by the audience tape - and to fill the gaps left due to the deletion of the 'fake audience noises'.?- The featured version of "Message to Love" is the only available Sbd version without echo, and is actually in itself a merge.?- This 3 source merge runs the Aud Source, the Sbd source and the Space mix simultaneously from "Message To Love" to the end.?- All tracks prior to "Message To Love" are identical to

This set donated by Phil Monnier is an outstanding early Dylan (61/62) compilation. This set includes tracks from The Oscar Brand interview (10-29-61), Carnegie Chapter Hall (11-04-61), Bonnie Beacher's Apartment (12-22-61), and the Leeds Demo (Feb. 62). The 11-04-61 and 12-22-61 shows are serious improvements from what most Dylan traders have access to. Phil speculates that only a handful of traders around the world have these shows in this quality.
It is an unbelievable set. Another dylantree essential!

From Phil...
"The main purpose of this cd compilation is to give Dylan newbies excellent sounding early soundboard material. Both 12-22-61 and 11-04-61 are tremendous upgrades to anything that has been released on boot over the years."

This set isn't just for newbies! The 12/22 and 11/04 sets are an incredible improvement.

Remaster Additional Info.
This is a gorgeous remastering of the Dylantree Early Dylan set. As you may know, the dylantree version was flawed with "digital fuzz" in many places, particularly on the Beacher tapes sections. The fuzz is gone on the bprm. Other annoying extraneous noises have been removed, as well as overlong dead spaces between tracks. No EQ changes have been made to the original sound of the recordings. Levels have been normalized to match up the varying sources. The overall effect is to turn the Dylantree product into a two disc WOW! rather than a choppy collection of moldy old stuff. It's never sounded better. Steve Wilkison has done a wonderful job with this set. I consider it well worth getting, even if you have the original dylantree set. Here is an additional comment from Steve: "I spent the better part of two days remastering the "Early Dylan" set because it literally contained well over 1,000 separate digital glitches." Turly a labor of love

Over a 12-year, nine-album career from 1968-1980, Led Zeppelin was the most popular rock group in the world, ultimately selling more than 200 million albums worldwide.  They developed the blues-based power trio-plus-lead singer archetype in many directions including mystical English folk-rock, Middle Eastern-influenced exotica, quirky pop and every manner of heaviness. They also came to symbolize the Dionysian excesses of the rock lifestyle.

Their ubiquity on classic rock radio formats and the aforementioned excesses have led many to dismiss the band as overrated and symptomatic of the decline of rock ‘n’ roll in the '70s and if anything, the band’s musical greatness is still underappreciated, due to the previously mentioned resentments and the fact that the band had no greater cultural impact — they didn’t much stand for anything. Jimmy Page formed the band in 1968 with veteran session bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, 19-year-old singer Robert Plant and Plant’s friend, drummer John Bonham.

Plant’s vocals reached levels of deranged ecstasy matched perhaps only by Little Richard on lyrics typically either oozing with sexuality or derived from Anglo-Saxon myth and/or the occult. Bonham (whose accidental death in 1980 broke up the band) pounded his drums relentlessly like a nimble elephant dancing through the house. Jones’s bass and strategic keyboards glued the disparate elements together. And Page, who did most of the writing and production, played some of the most fundamental and memorable guitar in rock history — from the heaviest crunch to the most delicate acoustic finger picking.

Radio Hauraki’s “Led Before Bed” a weekly series broadcast each Wednesday night from 10pm has featured DJ Mike Currie presenting live and rare material from Led Zeppelin provided by The Mysterious Benefactor, a local Zeppelin fan who has built up a formidable music collection over many years of collecting.

The Led Before Bed show broadcast on 11/05/2005 featured the only concert ever played in New Zealand by Led Zeppelin at Western Springs Stadium on February 25th 1972. The concert was recorded by an unknown member of the audience and has circulated amongst diehard fans for many years in one form or another. Many fans consider the band to be at their musical peak playing live around this period of the 70’s.

The Mysterious Benefactor took it upon himself to research the concert in depth which lead him to the NZ Herald archives at Auckland City Library to read issues from that week in February ’72. Copies of the original ad’s for the show are included along with the concert review from the Saturday 26th February issue.

The ad’s also showed that Radio Hauraki was the station at the time which promoted the show. The concert promoter was Australian Robert Raymond.  He was tracked down in America and provided an exclusive interview recalling many events and stories from this time which were a feature of the broadcast.  Also featured in another interview was the local record company rep who was given the task of looking after the band during their stay in the country.

Radio Hauraki’s listeners were asked over some weeks to contact the station if they had attended the concert and many of those who did can be heard reminiscing at times during the broadcast of their experiences of the concert on that day.

In the days following the broadcast Radio Hauraki DJ and Promotions Manger Mark Woods commented that in his 5 years with the station he had never received more calls or feed back for any other feature that had been played on the station. Clearly this one particular show had stuck a cord with the stations listeners and Mike Currie continues to receive calls about it to this day.

Radio Hauraki is a New Zealand radio network, specialising in AOR and classic rock. It was the first private commercial radio station of the modern broadcasting era in NZ and operated illegally to break the monopoly held by the government. Private commercial radio stations had operated from the earliest days of broadcasting, but the government began to close them down, the process accelerating after World War II. To break the state monopoly, Radio Hauraki was originally formed as a pirate station in the Hauraki Gulf in a famous and historic story that saw the loss of one life.  Radio Hauraki's head office and main studios are now located on the corner of Cook & Nelson Streets in Auckland City, along with the other seven stations of The Radio Network.

Newspaper Ad scans, a few concert photographs and a text reprint of the April 1972 Rolling Stone magazine review of the concert are also included.

Rolling Stone
April 27, 1972 

A Special Report: 
Fear & Led Zep in New Zealand 
AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Robert Raymond is an Australian, a qualified lawyer, sun-tanned, pleasant-mannered and a promoter who has taken up residence in Remuera, a very plush suburb of Auckland, New Zealand, and from there he has brought over Tom Paxton, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Mary Hopkin, Mungo Jerry, Elton John, Led Zeppelin and a few others I've probably forgotten -- all this in less than six months, to a country which is veritably Townsend’s Teenage Wasteland. Or was, up until less than six months ago.

Most of these acts would doubtless have made it over here anyway, the difference here being the rapidity in which they have arrived, but where the appearance of Elton John was an eye-brow raiser, the arrival of Zeppelin brought a near-catatonic reaction from the country's rock freaks, who descended on Auckland from as far away as Dunedin (the other end of the country: about 900 miles) for the open air concert February 25th. Three planes brought the equipment across the Tasman, and from what Raymond would say, it appeared that the whole thing would cost him around $40,000. Seats sold at $3.10 and $4.10 and somewhere between 20,000 and 25,000 filled the Western Springs Stadium (a couple of miles from Auckland city and usually used for stock cars and other related entertainment) -- so it seems the genial Raymond did OK. They don't pay lawyers that well over here, that's for sure. 

Zeppelin had come from Australia, and in keeping with a number of rock acts who've played there, they didn't have much of a time there. A harrowing raid on their motel in Perth had obviously left it's mark on a still-shaken Jimmy Page at the small party quickly arranged for them the night they arrived. You sensed they were going to play this one through on alcohol before getting back to Sanity. "Australia was really pretty s-----," said Page as his eyes wandered around the room -- the occasional groupie grooving to Sha Na Na ,the inevitable media people whom Raymond tactfully remembered to invite, and John Bonham filling the intermittent silences with amusing and loud imitations . . . a chick with "Merlene" knitted across her breasts, was arranging "interviews" (EMI's delightful press liaison girl Louise told me Merlene was "a strange person who read poetry in Wellington -- 500 miles away") and it was later dutifully reported that Merlene had scored two out of four. 

Our little group was heavily into the Raoul Duke thing -- those ROLLING STONE issues had just arrived in New Zealand -- as we laid our goodies out on the table (what's more, I'd just flown up from Dunedin to discover that AUCKLAND WERE NOT YET INTO NITROUS OXIDE, and so the gleaming blue 275-gallon cylinder took pride of place in the middle of the table. Something to sustain the stone later in the evening.) 
It was a good three hours before starting time when we set off for Western Springs (we began to peak prematurely as the Yugoslav taxi-driver quickly launched into an excited discussion on communes and people-who-live-on-beaches: "Have you seen them?" he roared at us as he snaked dangerously in and out of the lanes. Roger tipped him ten cents at the end and we ran off). Three hours wasn't in any way early and we got some of the remaining good seats on the hill overlooking the stage, perhaps 75 yards away. 

We were warmed up with the Allman Brothers' live double album. I don't know how many knew that Duane Allman was dead (I don't know how many knew Duane Allman actually) but the razor-sharp lead guitar came through the superb system with each note crystal clear. Then it was dark, 8 o'clock, and we knew it would be any minute . . .

There had been some publicity on how there would be live animals jumping through hoops, but all that had sort of been forgotten what with all the mind-food fighting for a hold in our heads. But suddenly there was a lion on stage: Plant. I mean we all read the rock magazines over here and the record companies sportingly release just about everything with half a reputation, but we didn't realize that Zeppelin were so loud -- specifically Plant doing the jungle intro to "Immigrant Song." And then Page hitting those chords...most of us had seen Townsend a couple of years before (just about the time the Who were breaking in America) and we'd always thought that  was the way to play chords. But Page has moved along with the times -- and weren't we lucky to see him. On the other side of the world. Wow. 

I'll skip the way they put the concert together -- it was exactly the way we expected they'd fill three hours and doubtless exactly the way 
they'd done it many times before. Suffice to say they played excellently, relative to their records and relative to reviews on how they'd played in the past. 
It was really quite a significant evening for New Zealand and for New Zealand rock. On record there are a few bands that still have it over Led Zeppelin for my taste, but working simply on what I have to work on, I can't really see there being much better live rock around -- possibly because Zeppelin came here with a definite mystery thing where say the Stones have been exposed both live and on record live: Zeppelin haven't done anything live and they refuse to be filmed (Two detectives accompanied the NZBC film crew around Western Springs to ensure the cameras would never swing round onto the stage). 
Bob Raymond has a lot more goodies planned, and he's moving into records too (a group called Ticket, who have stunned New Zealand by getting their debut album accepted by Ahmet Etregun for release in America on Atlantic, will probably hit your shores in around six months after Australia and Japan). Winter's coming on now but around say October it gets really nice -really green, you know? But you could always ask Led Zeppelin about that. (RS107)

Frank Zappa & The Mothers - The Fillmore 1970 Tapes (SBD/FLAC)

(Soundboard FLAC)

All 3 discs have been re-equalized and volume fluctuations smoothed over. There was no NR or compression done to these recordings. 
Disc 1 has a tape flip during Track 07 that has been smoothed over. 
Disc 1 has an unknown fill during the "bull*censored* chant" at the end of Track 10.
Disc 1 originally had clicks between tracks. These have been removed. 
Disc 2 crudely switches sources during Track 13. The original lineage doesn't explain this. This section has been remastered and smoothed over to better fit in with the rest of the show.

According to some written reports, the track - "Did I Let You Know" (the live concert premiere of it) was actually performed next after "Me And My Friends" at this particular show. Apparently the group nixed the airing of it for the Fuse broadcast; and, if you very listen closely, it does appear to be slight evidence of an edit there as you can lightly hear a count-in to simply a little more applause, the track "Californication" then continues the show.

***Neonknight's Notes*** 
Grolsch kindly assisted us with the background to this recording. Copenhagen '67 was taped by a local musician called Carsten V. Michael K borrowed his master and made a copy. Marbal's cassette is likely in turn to have been copied from a 7.5 ips open reel transfer of Michael K's reel. There are no digital clones from the master or first gen Michael K reel but both still exist and remain in the hands of the owners. Perhaps we can look forward to one or both of them surfacing one day. 

A 3rd gen reel from the collection of the late Bernard White is often considered to be the best source for this concert. A friend has Bernard's reel and a 2001 transfer was sent to Eskimospy for use by Harvested in August 2005 for their 'What Syd Wants' release. The lineage for Bernard's reel went something like Carsten V > Michael K > UK collector > Bernard in the mid 1970s. 

Marbal's 3rd gen cassette has been transferred before by other collectors and they were not able to bring out the best in the recording. Marbal's copy, like his Rotterdam tape, is much cleaner with a tighter top end, and a fuller, more natural sound when compared to Bernard's. 

Listen carefully to Littlepieces' re-master and you you can distinguish each instrument and follow it if you care to. You will also hear subtle details such as the clink of a glass at 11.39 and Reaction in G being counted in, that you probably will have not noticed before. I believe it's also possible to appreciate the ambience of the venue. 

There is no getting away from the fact that the quality of this recording varies. However, Littlepieces has done an excellent job smoothing the imperfections out on the LPP version, particularly the many distortions that often contribute to burying the sound. 

This is a strong, loud performance by the band which was sometimes too much for Carsten V's recorder to cope with. Listen out for Matilda Mother, which reminds me of the Underground Scene Special UFO version, and a lively Scream Thy Last Scream. Thank you Marbal for entrusting me with your tape! 

***Littlepieces' Mastering Notes for - Marbal's Copenhagen '67 Tape - Speed Corrected Only version*** 
All torrented unprocessed sources for this recording seem to share the same SQ and level fluctuations. The fact that the two lowest gen torrented sources, BWs 3rd gen reel and Marbal's 3rd gen cassette, have these as well, seems to indicate they are also on the 2nd gen sources they were copied from. 

The SQ is dark and the levels change for over a minute and slowly improves til about 1:20m when it becomes fairly stable until shortly after 12 minutes. From here a subtle increase in the hiss begins with a slowly decreasing upper half. This continues with some periods of improvement until eventually it becomes pronounced and by the time it reaches AD, the recording has become much weaker. The level changes also become more frequent beginning near the end of 'One in A Million'. There are many segments containing distortions and the frequency and intensity of these increase as the recording progresses. These give the impression that the recorder had his levels too high at times or his microphone was overwhelmed. As I said, all the mentioned artifacts are in all torrented unprocessed sources. 

This recording was marked as Dolby encoded but we transferred it without Dolby. Transferring a Dolby encoded recording without decoding the Dolby on playback is done often when playing the tape back on a different deck than that which it was encoded. The differences in decks often results in the decoding profile varying from the original encoding creating a poor result. Though this recording did not have its Dolby decoded, the expected boost in the higher frequencies are not near as apparent as usual. 

Marbal's cassette is a mono recording that was dubbed with a stereo deck into a two channel recording. Due to the previous transfers with less than perfect head alignment, it has a minor phase shift that is generally from 2-5 samples. The output level of each channel is similar most of the time and after about 12m I could a hear a bit more high end in the left channel. 

The speed was slow and was adjusted from 3.8% to 4.5%. 

*Other than adjusting the speed, no other changes were made to the 'Speed Corrected Only' version.* 

***Littlepieces' Mastering Notes for - Marbal's Copenhagen '67 Tape - LPP version*** 

To accompany the 'Speed Corrected Only' version I have produced a LPP version in an attempt to provide a copy with less interference from artifacts, more detail, and more overall SQ continuity. 

After testing each channel by itself and with the channels manually aligned, I decided to use only the left channel for approximately the 1st minute and then retain both channels and manually align through Arnold Layne, and use only the left channel from that point until the end of the recording. Using only the left channel should provide a bit more detail as the recording quality lessens after AL by including more high end and improved phasing. 

The most time consuming part of this project was definitely the manual spectral cleaning. I removed many many of the usual tics, pops, bumps, etc, but more importantly I was able to remove most of the distortions that interfered with the recording. 

I utilized and varied moderate noise reduction settings working mostly above 8kHz - 10khZ and only slightly lower on some audience sections while being diligent not to encroach on the harmonics. I could have worked the entire spectrum and squeezed most of the hiss out, but I generally don't like what this does to the nature of the sound. As with Marbal's Rotterdam recording, I think more aggressive NR, among other things, would have eliminated a sense of the acoustics of the small venue they are playing in. 

As with Rotterdam, the EQ increases I used were applied to only the upper half which as the recording progresses and weakens is even more buried than Rotterdam. The quality of this source and transfer allowed me to use an increasingly aggressive EQ profile and lessen the degree of difference between the best and worst parts of the recording. The EQ curve was adjusted at times throughout the recording but mostly did not exceed ~8kHz. In addition I used a multiband enhancer to increase the bass output by reducing the base width (mono) in the lower portion of the low end and increasing the gain when it was left channel only. 

There were many micro drop outs/downs, mostly ~20ms, and I either removed a short piece of damage or was able to use the other channel to repair the damaged segment. A few minor ones still remain as does some very short pieces of tape damage. 

I selectively reduced some low frequency hums during the audience/tuning segments and near the end of AD. These seem to be present and prominent in all unprocessed sources. 

Hopefully these changes allow a listener to progress through the recording without becoming so distracted by the artifacts and SQ and level changes. I think this rendition of Reaction In G is the best I've heard........it really cooks after a few minutes. And I love the way One in A Million hits so hard..........I have a new appreciation for this track.

This same set has circulated with an unknown lineage as "Goin' To San Antone" in bootleg form for quite a while. The information given in the art for that CD claims the August 3, 1979 date to be incorrect, claiming it to be August 30, 1978. The art accompanying that boot has most of the titles presented here incorrectly listed, as oftentimes boots do. However, the lineage of this set is definitely known, and it is guaranteed to be 1st gen from the master reel, along with the source information contained in this edition, which was copied from the box of said reel. If anyone reading this has indisputable knowledge of the 1978 date, please provide some proof. Otherwise, please update any discography which collects this kind of data with this current info.
