Notes and comments: 
Recorded from the lower bowl - side stage 

I'd first like to thank the taper for sharing this gem with me! I first saw Bon Jovi on the Because We Can Tour in 2013 in Louisville. This show was the night before mine, and with Paragon so difficult to contact, I fear I'll never get a chance to work on the show that got me into trading live music. This is also the fourth to last show Richie played with Bon Jovi. I'm giving my all to this one, because even though it has it's complications, this tour is dear to me. Speaking of complications, the show kicks off with a glitch, as the sound system messes up just as the band is ready to kick into the first song! I don't like to spoil the setlist in my reviews, so in general, the first several are generic. In track 8, the harmonies really ring clearer than most shows, and Richie and David are really showing off. Phenomenal vocal work! Also, holy mother of god, Richie is showing off those "Aftermath of the Lowdown" guitar skills on KTF. It was well-known that Richie didn't really want to go on tour to support What About now, and upon leaving the band after the March 17 show in Lubbock, Texas went on to work with Orianthi and form RSO. But after We Got it Goin' On in St. Louis, Richie seems to have the old 2003 KTF energy back (at least, it seems that way to me) kickin' ass on both of his solos, and opening it up for David and Bobby to follow up with fantastic jams of their own. In the words of Paragon, "this is the first time I've really enjoyed Bobby's work with the band." I have done no fades or splitting to accomidate burning discs, as to avoid disrupting the live experience. If you would like to, I suggest beginning disc two after track 15. Keep the Faith is a much cooler disc transition, but the length of the show and where KTF is placed in the setlist makes that impossible.

opening for Jeff Beck and the Jan Hammer Group 

Dan Lampinski recorded over 100 concerts in the Providence/Boston area, mostly between 1974 and 1978. His earliest recordings were made with an internal microphone deck, and though they are somewhat lo-fi compared to his later work, some very great moments in rock history were captured for posterity. In late 1974 he bought a Sony TC-152SD tape recorder, a Sony ECM-99 stereo microphone, and began using Maxell cassettes. He was also fortunate enough to have a friend who provided excellent taping seats for many shows, resulting in high quality recordings. In 1977, he switched over to a Nakamichi 550 tape recorder, two Nakamichi CM-300 microphones, and continued using Maxell cassettes. 

He recorded many of the major 70's bands: Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull, ELP, Kiss, Black Sabbath, The Who, Al Stewart, Alice Cooper, Jeff Beck, Bruce Springsteen, Supertramp, Jean-Luc Ponty, Moody Blues, Neil Young, The Faces, Rush, Rick Wakeman, Kansas, as well as several "under the radar" acts. 

Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ'ing has been done to any of the transfers. Feel free to EQ, matrix, patch, etc and re-post if you like, just give Dan credit for the original recording. 

Dan was very meticulous about taking good care of his tapes and is very pleased that these recordings will now circulate among the trading community. Please honour his kindness and generosity by sharing these recordings freely.

Because of the running time, i had to flip "girl in the yellow dress" and "One Of These Days" to set 1. so the whole concert is a double and not a tripple CD. if someone is able to make the intermission between "what do u want" -"yellow girl" and "high hopes" -" One of these days" more fluid and natural, you re welcome ;-)

Charade represents the first silver release of the complete February 25th, 1977 Pavillion de Paris show on Pink Floyd’s Animals tour. Three previous silver titles released in the nineties featured the second half of the show, the songs from Wish You Were Here.

Shine On (Black Cat Records BC 25) released in 1992 from Australia ran about 5% too fast and was sourced from a high generation copy of the tape. Live Volume 2 (Joker Productions JOK-013-B) is another Australian release that is probably a remaster of Shine On.

“Shine On You Crazy Diamond (1-5)” fades out early and there are gaps between the songs, but has been described by collectors as “listenable.” Finally Paris 1977 (The Screaming Abdabs 091-014) is another release of the second half of the show on silver with the same issues as the others.

In the ensuing decade a lower generation copy of the show surfaced that offers the first half of the show and improved sound quality but missing “Have A Cigar” and “Wish You Were Here.”
Charade uses an alternate tape to fill in the gaps to complete the show.

The sound quality is very good and clear with the emphasis on the higher frequencies. It lacks the dynamic live sound and bottom end of Funhouse on Siréne, which documents the opening show from this set. It does however capture the same spooky atmosphere. The Parisian audiences were much m more quiet and respectful to the musicians.

The American shows the following summer would be a different story with many good tapes ruined by drunken morons yelling over the tape. There are minor distortion issues and slight channel drops during the first half of “Sheep,” but the tape clears up nicely and the rest of the Animals material is excellently recorded.

At this point Floyd had been touring for a month with the new material and already developed a tight presentation. The tape captures very well the Psalm 23 section of the first song which on many tapes is buried in the mix. “Dogs” has a tremendous about of bite (no pun intended) and the audience like the barking dogs in the middle.

“Pigs (Three Different Ones)” builds to a tremendous climax. 
At 11:57 Waters shouts out “SIX….ONE” to indicate this is the sixteenth show of the world tour.
Of all the songs in the set, this one is the most recently written and one gets the impression that, as Gilmour is spitting
out these angry metallic riffs, that the audience is sitting there with mouths open in astonishment.

The second half of the show featuring the Wish You Were Here material is more well known. The sound becomes slightly more fuzzy during “Shine On You Crazy Diamond Parts 1-5,” but the playing again is very aggressive and Dick Parry’s saxophone squeaks a bit. What is somewhat noticable in the first half, but becomes more apparent in the second is that this is definitely a David Gilmour concert.

Despite the show being tightly choreographed to fit the visuals on the screen, Gilmour takes every opportunity to produce unique solos, riffs, and throwaway riffs to make this show all his own. Charade is packaged in a double slimline jewel case with dull finish paper inserts, limited to two hundred copies.

Opening for Kiss. I usually miss opening acts, as drinking beer in the parking lot of venue X seems like a better deal (for instance, I missed Rival Sons - opening for Black Sabbath - twice this year as the call of the beer was greater). I then regret it later on. This time, for whatever reason, we decided to go in early and catch The Dead Daisies' set. A bit of a hard rock Super Group, The Dead Daisies were pretty good. I'm a fan of Dough Aldrich, from his work with Dio (check out "Holy Diver - Live"), as well as Whitesnake, and John Corabi is an excellent frontman. I did find it a bit odd that they played 4 covers in a 50 minute set.

So the story goes: I answered an ad on Craigslist for 500 free Grateful Dead tapes. On picking them up from the taper, I'm also informed he and a friend recorded other bands through the 70's. These were never circulated, and deemed inferior in quality. When I inquired about digitizing his masters, he laughingly obliged, and this is the 5th one completed. Some of the old Ampex and BASF tapes are in poor shape, one completely off the spool, and several squealing badly. I will be presenting the ones of superior quality only, out of the initial batch he loaned me. I do believe these shows will be lovingly embraced by the Dime community, and will be shared here exclusively.

Missing: Beauty and the Beast, Stay, Rebel Rebel

Received in a tape trade many years ago, this is a pretty good sounding show from the '78 tour. The Bowie Concert Tapes book does not mention this tape so I believe it surfaced later. It's really clear at least to my ears, not a lot of hiss on this show. For description purposes, in the first set Fame is cut in half, Beauty and the Beast is missing altogether. The second set is intact including the Band Intros, and for encores there is only TVC-15, meaning no Rebel Rebel or Stay. The transfer is raw, it would seem maybe a few songs are slow. I really couldn't figure it out as I bounced around, as Bowie's voice sounds in tune, but the tempos are a bit slower. From the Blackout archives. Enjoy!!
