the history of this recording:

* FM Broadcast by Radio KinkFM in 1995, by the time the 'This ain't a love song' single was released. Recorded by a highschool friend of mine on a Sony HF-S 60 tape.

* I used a Sony CFD-S05 portable radio to record the tape in Goldwave 5.67
* In Goldwave I performed these actions:
- lowpass filter at 10000 kHz, steepness setting 20
- volume maximize
- equalizer: 15 kHz +2 db
- volume maximize

The NYC Loan Star Roadhouse Recordings:
These shows are being heard publicly for the first time as a tribute to the late Rich Comras, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in January, 2017. Rich began recording the Grateful Dead in 1983, using a Nakamichi 550.  Later, he was one of the first tapers to record on a Sony TCD-D10 Pro DAT which was Sony’s first heavyweight DAT recorder. Rich recorded close to 100 shows at the Roadhouse during the period 1989 through 1993.  All these shows were recorded on his trusty D10, surreptitiously placed on a shelf under a baseball cap at the soundboard. Fellow Deadheads and music lovers Jon Ashner and David Minches are leading the effort for this project to release the music into the public domain.  Jon is now in possession of these recordings and is providing information about the shows.  David Minches is performing the transferring and mastering.

Keith_Moon's comments, April 2011: As the text above implies, I got it from the Who torrent site Long Live Rock. It remains unchanged from when I grabbed it. I was at this show and feel this tour was the best The 'Oo sounded since 1979. It was wonderful to hear Bargain and other Lifehouse songs after so many years. Pete shredded, the Ox was the Ox and Daltrey was in great voice. Zak remains the best Who drummer since Moonie. I met Irish Jack Lyons before the show at my friend Scott's house and got backstage afterwards and Roger came out to talk to some fans, as did Rabbit, who's from Texas. So it was a wonderful night for me. Hope you enjoy this.

There may have been a blizzard outside, but there were some smokin' hot blues inside! My favorites from the evening were Slippin' In and Drowning on Dry Land. The latter was performed by Buddy as he was wandering through the crowd for over 10 minutes. He passed me going up the center aisle, then through the concession area and up to the second floor balcony where he proceeded to unleash a guitar solo the likes of which I have never seen or heard. Check out this picture of him making his way past me back to the stage.

REVIEW: Before the Sea Of Tunes label began their landmark series of releases, this two-cd release on the Silver Shadow label was the best-sounding album of early Beach Boys studio outtakes on the market. Covering the period between "Help Me Ronda" (single version) and "Heroes and Villains," the bulk of material is from 1966's Party! album and the Pet Sounds sessions. It begins with the much-talked about 40-minute long "Ronda" sessions in which Brian and Murray have a tempestuous run-in, with Brian in charge of the sessions, and then slowly, his father Murry, who has been invited to sit in with Audree Wilson, slowly begins to take over the session, belittling Brian in front of the other band members, goading him, taunting him, and when Brian, obviously trying to reign in his anger breaks loose, it's the clearest representation of their stormy relationship ever captured, and it's electrifying, and far more illuminating than any other biographical portrait given. Murry is a deadly calm steamroller, crushing Brian under an unending stream of dreary platitudes and goading taunts, and Brian is trying to squirm out from under the crushing patriarchial weight. Then the CD breezes into the light-hearted rehearsals for the Party! album, with Brian trying to urge the less-than-serious band to get to work. There are early versions of "Student Demonstration Time," an unreleased song, "One Kiss Led to Another," and lots of studio chatter. Disc two is a mish mash of various tracks, also in stellar sound, with takes of "Good To My Baby," several tracks from Pet Sounds, and finishes with crystal-clear session takes of "Good Vibrations" and a lengthy seven-plus-minute run on the "Heroes and Villians" track.

This is a great pro-shot video from the 1991 Painkiller tour. The video quality is pretty good, although it has some minor errors every now and then, and of course being VHS sourced it's a bit blurry at times. There's also a slightly noticeable change in source (and a drop in quality) during Beyond the Realms of Death. A strong rumor suggests that the first part comes from the TV station master which was copied by an employee (this part was never broadcast), which would explain the legal warnings in the beginning. And the latter part is recorded off the broadcast (as it started during Glenn's solo). But despite the legal warnings, I can assure you that this concert has never been commercially released (even the copyright markings in the cover art are just an insider joke by Pete Z), so I think it's OK to seed it here.

The audio quality is really pristine throughout, and the lossless PCM coding is really justified here. I'm not certain if this is the full concert, but this is probably all there is available from this concert. Enjoy, and keep the metal faith!

This is the famous appearance of Iron Maiden on Beat Club, a German weeklty TV show in the '70's/early '80's that also featured bands like Saxxon, Dokken, April Wine and....ABBA. The band plays live for a 1/2 hour in front of a studio audience and seems a bit nervous. They make quite a few mistakes throughout the set. Nonetheless, it's a great, energetic show from Maiden in what I consider their best period.

The band was very loud (I would even say louder than Motorhead) and I did not think that the recording is going to be any good but it came out pretty good. The place was unfortunately half empty so I had great spot up on the balcony. They played for 2 hours and 35 minutes, great set and amazing performance.

Venue: Red Rocks
Place: Morrison, Colorado, USA

Lineage -> Unknown

Video: MPEG-2 720x480 (NTSC) 4:3
Audio: Dolby AC-3 2ch 48kbps

Description: Recorded presumably by a member of the crew, the perspective is from the right of the stage with the recorder appearing to be on stage as well. A generally steady picture, clear pic and audio.

Note: This is an incomplete recording. Missing from the recording but played that night are: Sign of the Cross (played just after 2 Minutes to Midnight), and Dream of Mirrors (played after The Trooper). Also cuts in during The Mercenary, so we miss the intro to that song. Otherwise an excellent 'all-access' recording.
