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: 
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.

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.

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.

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.

Fleetwood Mac - 1967-1968 - The Complete unreleased BBC Anthology (STU/FLAC)

19. Crazy For My Baby

Courtesy of the Johnny Kidd Fan Club, I am proud to be able to offer you this amazing collection of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac on the BBC. Many of these tracks have never been traded or torrented before. Others are upgraded from lesser quality versions that have circulated. 

Of course, when you get Mac live, you don't just get Peter, but also Jeremy doing his Elmore James tunes, and his 50's schtick. I asked Graham Parker (a big Green fan) about seeing them live, he said some of Jeremy's 50's schtick was almost Spinal Tap-ish. But you do get some interesting Jeremy here, especially on May I Have a Talk and Crazy for my Baby 

But the fact remains that these guys were the best blues band in the UK during this time. Listen how they nail Sweet Little Angel, a song Jeff Beck was soon to make part of the JBG set. And Mean Old World, a song Christine would soon bring to Chicken Shack. But for raw emotion, you can't beat Green's solo rendition of Robert Johnson's Dead Shrimp Blues. The old saying was that Johnson's first record in the UK was only bought by three people: Keef, Eric, and Greenie. Cream was doing an adrenaline fired version of Crossroads. Green, however, just sits down and plays Dead Shrimp solo, plaintive and emotional. What balls. 

The details are all on the info sheet--it is a complete rundown of all BBC sessions during this time, meticulously researched. The titles are from BBC log sheets. 

There will be a part two from 69-70, but it won't be coming soon. Surprise tracks are also in the offing. 

I want to publically thank my kind benefactor, if he should see this. 

Lastly, this is for Tom Graves, wherever he is today.

The decision was made to include the complete "18. Intermission - (19:13)" as i felt it added to the overall completeness of the show (for me anyway). 
The same recording level was used throughout the entire concert, which will explain why "18. Intermission - (19:13)" is lower in volume than the rest of the show.

There are many high quality captures from the last few months of the first leg of the BIUSA Tour, this one can be added to the mix on the top shelf. Taken from my 1st generation tape traded for shortly after the show, this is the same and so far only source. It has previously been released on the LP picture disc ‘Live In Jack Murphy’ as well as a couple of tape transfers, one of which is solid but tends to lean towards a flat mid-range sound. This is a strong material upgrade over all previous versions, an excellent capture with good instrument separation, excellent dynamics and clarity. 

The performance is tremendous, “Detroit Medley” includes a rare outing of “Wabash Cannonball” last played on November 1, 1980, highly recommended for even the casual collector.

Notes:
I scored cheap tickets the day before the show so I figured I had to try to film it. The Denny Sanford Premier Center is a brand new super clean venue but the upper level offers zero leg room and only one stairway for everyone to use. Aside from the cramped quarters, my view of the stage was superb and I was able to capture 99% of the show unobstructed and steady. I had to patch in a few youtube clips during the first song due to people getting late to their seats.
