This show comes from a rather infamous Lp. With the success of Led Zeppelin, Epic decided to cash in on Jimmy Page and so released this Lp. The hardcore are familiar with the story - the drums were recorded with a single mic, crowd noise was added with the sound of clinking glasses, etc. The result? Jimmy immediately had the Lp pulled off shelves....but not before some got out. This set is taken directly from the original Epic vinyl (I had to go through a TMQ boot, then a pirate [artwork in black and white] before finally getting my hands on the genuine Epic Lp). The set includes an early version of Dazed & Confused (here called "I'm Confused"), which includes Keith Relfs original lyrics. The release has always been pretty panned over the years, but I've always enjoyed it quite a bit myself. See what you think.

A fantastic Mid Valley audience recording. A visitor comment on the Geetarz site referred to a Where's Eric show rating of 5+. Well, I put my headphones on and my ears said its a show that can be given a 6. With either will love this show. Geetarz always gives us the art we need. This time I scanned the covers and 4 pictures that were included in the booklet that came with the silvers, in the hope they may be clearer and sharper.

Another rarity from the 1974 tour, just like my other recent uploads this one comes from my old tapes too.
An average audience recording of unknown (but surely low) generation received about 20 years ago from the same great UK collector (I will never say enough "Thank you" to Mal B. who helped me build my collection back in the 80's with his enormous generosity).
You' d better read the wonderful review at
How can you resist ? You HAVE to download it !
This was a little difficult to transfer and edit; infact most of the songs are played nonstop one after the other and sometimes it' s hard to determine when one ends and the other begins !!! And this happens because Eric is so drunk that he starts playing songs without even caring of what his band
is doing !!!
The artwork at geetarz mentions Crossroads after Little Queenie, but I think they wanted to mention the song played with The Band, as Crossroads is not on the tapes (you can also check the "Slowhand tourography" and see that Crossroads was NOT played).
This is a short gig, it doesn' t fit on one CD just for a few seconds, so I had to split it.

Geetarz Comments: Widely reported as the worst show of the 1974 tour, in fact this may be EC's lowest point on stage - ever. Eric is massively, incoherently drunk, and unintelligable at times. As the show begins with EC's 'outroduction' of emcee "Legs" Larry Smith, a member of the crowd shouts out "Clean Up Yer Act!!!!" which really says it all.

EC begins his set with a rambling "Last Train to Brownsville", and then engages in an angry tirade: "To be serious ... one more of them, I'll tell you, and YOU'RE OUT OF HERE! One more of them silly fucking fireworks and you are out of here! Behaviour!"

As if the audience wasn't aware of his state, after "Let it Grow", Clapton shouts "I am drunk and I am ready for fuckin' trouble!". Then, as guest Freddy King takes the stage, "he's strapping on his guitar, moving to the guest spot ... and if you haven't heard of him ... you don't fucking deserve him! His name is Freddy ..." at this point a member of the crowd shouts out "Wanker!", presumably directed at Eric - and probably deserved.

As the solo progresss in "Hideaway", EC simply lets his guitar feed back for bar after bar, while Freddy King solos. Then in "Have You Ever Loved a Woman", after the line 'it's a shame and a sin', EC opines "don't believe them! there's no shame, there's no sin...". Freddie King then proceeds to wipe EC off the stage with his solo. Unfortunately, it's the only high point of this show!

As "Get Ready" begins, the tape source for this CD begins to exhibit lots of wow and flutter, which comes and goes for the remainder of the recording. "Blues Power" ends with the beginning of "Presence of the Lord" which continues on Disc 2. As the band segues into "Little Queenie", EC mumbles "there it is again ... mumble mumble ... what the fuck is going on? ... well, I'm happy to get going - suits me, suits you" and then finally, in what has to be the second most bizarre and/or obscure "Little Queenie" reference from the 1974 tour (the "Martin Borman - Vote Nazi!" comment from the Pittsburgh show takes the #1 slot), EC says "Meanwhile, in Birmingham ... England, that is, not here, in Alabama .... they're making Persian carpets ... at 19,000 quid apiece ... there's only 10 Pakistanis here! They can't be bad - who am I?"

Members of The Band come out and join Eric on a disjointed performance of "Chest Fever" and then by all accounts, carry the drunken Clapton off the stage.

This show is interesting in much the same way as a gruesome car accident beside the highway - you don't really want to look, but there's a certain sick curiosity that makes you! Certainly only a recording for diehard fans

05) Let It Rain (8:59)

One of the best EC audience recordings from the 1970s, this is a must-have for any Clapton collector. The 1975 tour is legendary for EC's erratic, sloppy behavior, but this is one of the better, more focused shows I've heard from this period. I presume this was recorded with permission of the band with fairly professional equipment and multiple microphones -- the quality surpasses almost any audience recording from the 1970s and is frequently mistaken for a soundboard. 

It's unfortunate that there is no lineage for this -- if you have a known-generation recording, please post it! In the meantime, this is a good listen for even a casual EC fan who likes Clapton's 1970s material.

Great versions 
*)very special moment on Walk of life at the introduction of Phil Palmer. Mark Knopfler: "It's a very special night for him tonight, 'cause it's his birthday". Then the "happy birthday" tune is played on keyboards, embedded into Walk of life! 
Also a nice version of the rarely played You and your friend. 

Complete concert. 

Original taper/master/uploader comment:
LDB Master Series #40 

Hello, this is a collection of masters I would like to seed here. I've been taping shows for more than 20 years and have an awful lot of masters. Most of them are in the old cassette format, some others are on MiniDisc and others are on CD. I've taped many shows of many artists over the years, so don't be surprised if you will find many different artists taped! Some shows are already circulating, some others have not circulated through collectors yet. But most of all, enjoy! 
They all come from my mastertapes! This is a solid performance by the Dire Straits on their last tour under this name. I attended all four shows (all sold out!) the band played in Milano and, although I enjoyed the show, there were very little changes in the setlist. So the one you see here is the pretty much standard setlist played in Milano. the sound quality is very good to excellent. dedicated to the true Dire Straits fans... 

Lineage: Sony Professional > Aiwa microphone > Tape > Audigy Soundblaster > HD.

Enlight note:
Great show and excellent performance
The Third show from four in a row at the "Forum Di Assago" (7,8,9 and 10 September)
Very nice and enthousiasm crowed
The sound is excellent for an audience recording
Great to have a good version of "You and your friend" (see sample)
Nice intro at "Two young lovers"
Sultans of Swing (see sample) and Telegraph Road are stunning
And Alan or Guy on keyboard playing The happy birthday tune for Phil during the "walk opf Life" breakdown is awesome.(see sample)

The whole show wasn't broadcast unfortunately but H's audience recording is hardly a drop down in quality from the FM broadcast and completes the whole show. This is an early show from Bowie's glass spider tour and features Peter Frampton on guitar.

early TYA show in the magnificent setting of the Wollman Rink at Central Park. So many shows took place there in the 70's and fortunately quite a few were captured on tape for posterity. 

This one comes from the tour supporting the Stonedhenge album and was part of a great festival called "Schaefer Music Festival" which ran from 1968 to 1976 and featured basically every single main act you could imagine, from Springsteen to Mahavishnu, Gentle Giant, Led Zeppelin, King Crimson, Poco, Peter Frampton and many more.

Please don't post to other trackers right away, I will be posting this at Jungleland after it's seeded here as I need the ratio help over there as well…damn this new tour:-)

This is a new azimuth adjusted transfer and should replace any versions currently in circulation.

The second of two nights I taped in Denver, first night is located here:

No issues getting through the frisk the second night, recorded from the floor somewhere around the 25th row dead center.

I think this night surpasses the first night just a bit in quality, another stellar performance from Bruce and the band with a beautiful acoustic No Surrender (dedicated to Little Steven of course), a rare Growin' Up w/story. Hungry Heart opens the second set, not unheard of but fairly rare during the latter part of the tour pushing Cover Me further back into the set.
After this all that was left was flying back to OKC and waiting two weeks for back to back nights in Dallas.

No cuts, no music missing…

Bruce Springsteen - 1984-08-16 - East Rutherford, NJ (AUD/FLAC)

(Audience FLAC)

Brendan Byrne Arena, Meadowlands Sports Complex, East Rutherford, NJ 

New Tape Transfer of an alternative source following an observation at SPL that Born To Run was missing from the Anubis version. 

This show was originally released on vinyl "Do You Love Me" and then on Anubis with the same title. Based on the content provided in the Jungleland artwork it was probably that version that was also used for "7th Night at Meadowlands Arena". These are all missing Born To Run and have I'm A Rocker following Jungleland. It appears that Rosalita and Jungleland were paired to fit on one LP side and I'm A Rocker moved to the final LP side with Born To Run then left off. 

Given that Brucebase is also currently showing the wrong setlist order then I assume this alternative source is not widely available in the collecting community. In other shows around that date I'm A Rocker always preceded Jungleland when both were played and this tape source has captured the transition. 

Quality is reasonable and listenable but in my opinion inferior to the "Do You Love Me" source. No problems with pitch stability though there are some tape burps. Quite bright and shrill early on but gets a lot better further through. This one comes with a "screamer" warning for the first set but she did get tired after about 30 minutes with just an occasional token effort thereafter. 

I transferred this with dolby off and play trim at neutral. My preference is to try to transfer as originally recorded and use play trim to boost treble where tapes have got dull over time. However the application of dolby on these tapes was inconsistant particularly early on so best left off. This means that these already bright tapes will sound a bit extra shrill in places and it does lead to some hiss but relatively mild for this show. 

Tapes obtained from a UK Record Fair in the mid 1980s as a C90, C60, C60 package on Sony BHF/HF cassettes. 

Playback via Yamaha KX480 tape deck. 

Recorded using Audacity, exported as flac files and tracks split using CD Wave. 

Files tested and checked for errors and SBEs using TLH. 

Each tape side was normalised individually. 

The original taper had a tape change after Cover Me where there is a cut but Darlington County was then added to the first side of my tape 1. Other tape changes after Hungry Heart, My Hometown, Backstreets and Jungleland. It appears the original taper also had tape changes after Pink Cadillac and Rosalita where there are cuts. 

A small snippet of the beginning of Rosalita is included where there was a cross tape overlap. I have not tried to edit or resolve tape endings so this is presented as per the tapes with no fades and just a couple of silences removed. 

The following disk order aligns with the Anubis version but reflects the revised sequence and includes Born To Run. Other options may work better for this source.

02 Prove It All Night 
03 Out In The Streets

Known faults:
-She's The One: last few seconds cut

There can be no denying the power of the Darkness tour. And my first show ever was on the mighty River tour. But there's always been something extraordinary about the 1977 tour. The spirit of '77 might best be summed up by lyrics that would appear on the album that followed once the lawsuit with Appel went away:

Tonight I'll be on that hill 'cause I can't stop
I'll be on that hill with everything I've got
Lives on the line where dreams are found and lost
I'll be there on time and I'll pay the cost

It is difficult to recall our courtship in specific detail, but I think the first '77 show I heard, and certainly the one I played the most early on, was Toronto, February 13, recorded, as I would later come to learn, by J in JEMS before we got the band together, so to speak.

Then, once I heard Boston March 24-25, 1977, it was all over, the tour had its hooks in me. To this day, every time I hear Bruce open a show with "Night," I fully expect "Don't Look Back" to follow. And shouldn't it?

Two years ago, JEMS had the good fortune to be entrusted with the master tapes of all four nights from Boston, March 22-25, as recorded by the legendary Steve Hopkins, a passion project I had pursued for several years. Why? Well, not only does that four-night stand make a convincing case as one of the greatest runs in Springsteen's touring history, but Hopkins' work also represents the best recordings of the tour.

For you see, my theory on why the '77 tour is not held in higher esteem more broadly despite being loved by many is due to its lack of available soundboard or radio broadcast performances.

While one can presume that surely some soundboard recordings exist, locked away in the Thrill Hill vaults, we also know that on this tour and seemingly this tour only, Bruce's sound crew set up open mics at the board to make what some have called Official Audience Recordings. Instead of recording the Front of House mix from the board, they captured an ambient recording in the room, just like a taper would. Why this was done is pure speculation, but it may explain the lack of true '77 boards given how many we have from the tours immediately before and after it.

In the early 1990s, an active and well-connected SoCal trader told JEMS he had obtained four such official audience recordings from someone with ties to the '77 crew: Richfield, OH, February 17; Milwaukee February 22; St. Louis February 28; Towson, MD March 13. Those tapes were subsequently loaned to us, DAT copies were made and not only added to the JEMS archive but selectively traded back in the day. Given the era, copies eventually made there way to bootleggers and the Milwaukee set and parts of Richfield wound up on a bootleg CD.

Because of that, I had always presumed all four were widely circulating, but I have come to understand that is not the case. There's also evidence of a fifth official audience recording, New Haven 3/18. Given we had the original DATs in hand, three of our own masters from the tour, and some first generation DATs of other masters it seemed only right to launch a '77 series, with Richfield the kick-off.

Memories have faded as to why Richfield isn't complete, missing what feels like one 45-minute side of tape from the middle of the show. But what is there provides a good example of these '77 official audies, with rich, full sound, no nearby audience noise and a wide, consistent stereo image.

The set pulls you right in with a cracking "Night" rolling right into "Rendezvous," a lively "Spirit" and one of the tour's show-stopping highlights, the epic "It's My Life." The official audience source drops in the waning moments of "She's the One" and picks up at the start of the famous encore, with the E Street Band backing the legendary Ronnie Spector on three Ronettes classics (with vocal assistance from future "Hungry Heart" back-up singers Flo and Eddie), plus their recently recording collaboration (produced by Miami Steve), "Say Goodbye To Hollywood."

That encore makes this show an historic one-off and well worth a listen. JEMS had long had the missing 45 minutes from a second source, but we were pleased to learn our brother from another mother, mjk5510, was in possession of a much lower generation copy of the same second source markedly superior to our copy. Together, you get the entire show save for a few seconds of "She's the One" in very listenable quality, and giving us a fine start to our series. Samples provided.

Thanks to M and J from JEMS for pulling out these DATs and helping make new transfers, to the folks on Stone Pony whose thread sparked this series, and to mjk5510 who again provides essential expertise and collaboration.
