Excellent soundboard from Gabriel's summer 1987 tour of outdoor amphitheaters. By this time, he had been promoting the album for the better part of a year, so the set had pretty much jelled and the band was hitting on all cylinders. All of these performances were great.

The recording itself . . . I traded for it from an established Gabriel collector in early 1988; he claimed it was a soundboard. Most of the commenters here appear to think it's an audience recording, so perhaps it is -- either way it's a very nice recording for the era. I don't know the generation, but given when I got it and how well-connected he was, I don't think it's more than two or three generations removed from the master. The fidelity for a cassette recording is really nice. Listen to the mp3 samples and judge for yourself.

Show comments: 
Iowa Jam '86 Line Up: Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, Dokken, Metallica, Armored Saint. Incredible line up and an even more incredible recording. This has always been one of my all time favorite bootleg shows (meaning all 5 bands). What a day for the rockers of Des Moines, not only this amazing festival but also Van Halen played later that evening at the Memorial Auditorium. The recordings of all five bands are simply amazing, it doesn't get much better than this for an audience recording. Great show to finish off the day, i think this was the last truly great tour of Aerosmith before their corporate sell out. This was when they were still a raw great rock and roll band. Don't get me wrong i still like them but up to this point, this is the real Aerosmith.

A spectacular sounding recording of what was up to now considered an unrecorded show. No known tape has circulated. Well I knew this to be wrong, because I've had the first hour of it on cassette since the 80s, but have never spread it around because it was an incomplete show. I then located a private taper who had the entire show. After some negotiations I traded him masters of a show I recorded and got this. The trader I got this from will not trade for circulated material as he considers it worthless, and he wont circulate his tapes very easily. 
But no mention of whether I was planning to circulate it was ever brought up, so I've not been forbidden to do so. I've been trying for 20 years to find this entire show and now that I have you all get to reap the rewards of it. AND this is a rare show featuring The Pros And Cons Of Hitchhiking (the song, not the album). 

Mastering notes: 
I did nearly nothing to retouch this as it was a pretty damn good tape to begin with. There was a lot of low midrange which I lowered a bit and tweaked the high end a bit to make it a little brighter. There was a hum that I removed by taking a sliver out at 116hz with a parametric EQ. Crossfaded the tape flips to be as unobtrusive as possible.

OK folks, here is an uncirculated DVD of the Moody Blues from the BBC "Colour Me Pop" prog. from 1968. As far as I know, this has only ever been shown the once and is now liberated thanks to a fellow collector. The BBC actually aired over 30 of these programmes, but alas all but five have been wiped from the archives.More info here

Now as to the quality. This DVD transfer has black bars at the top and sides of the screen (this is how I received the basic files) and all I have done is added chapters/ menus. The picture quality is very good, although there is slight artifacting towards the end, - I understand this is due to the age of the master reel, All things said,this is a wonderful document of the Moodies at that time.

raw rip from a supernice low generation cassette, sounds amazing if compared with the version I had, though it's still not what you'd consider an excellent recording for sure.
no dehissing of artifacts used here, frequencies are all intact, sounds bright and crispy (other versions around have poor NR)
- HAC has a sorta flip due to the copy (sounds like a loss of volume);
- SOYCD 6-9 has a flip at the beginning in all copies as it seems;
- TGGITS cuts at the end (but no pieces of the song are lost) - this is in other copies too though there it was retouched and sounds not as much evident as here.
many tracks are not indexed properly, have little stops.
if then we consider that other shorter copies run slow too, this is definitely longer and here Speak To Me is complete, lasts more than 5 minutes, whereas it's totally missing in other copies; furthermore the original rip is even longer (about 7 minutes longer) since the first 2 tracks of CD2 are repetitions of STM and Breathe (running slower than the actual tween-tracks 3 and 4); I did exclude the first 2 tracks of CD2 here for this reason (tracks 3 and 4 became tracks 1 and 2).
Significant upgrade for this that's maybe the date I'm more fond of.
this was played exactly the day after I was born.

This is DEEP PURPLE again at their improvisational best. These are some of the wildest and best versions of these 5 songs live.  Back in this era Blackmore & Lord are the true "leaders" of the band and they display this with their musical bravado. 1970 is Ritchie Blackmore's year. There are alot of great guitar plays in the field of Rock & Jazz in this era of music, but no one has yet to bring classical music to into their guitar playing, at least not on the level that Mr.Blackmore would. At the very moment of this recording the "Man In Black" is without a "peer".  The dexterity in his playing and his willingness to go out on limb and play totally of the cuff without structure is beyond even Hendrix & Page at this point. This is the "Golden era" of Ritchie Blackmore...for pure improvisational guitar playing, he was damn near this year impossible to beat! And then there is Jon Lord...In the wake of progressive Rock in the 70's, Keyboards we're becoming more and more popular and many a musician started to make a name for themsleves just like the "Guitar Slingers". Keith Emerson was on the rise as well soon would be Rick Wakeman. But Jon Lord really is the name one typical thinks of when thinking of a heavy metal band having Keyboards. And rightly so....who else would jokingly refer to themself on stage as "Rick Emerson". lol It is stated in an interview by Ritchie Blackmore, that after hearing "Whole Lotta Love" on the radio in late 1969, that DP needed a new singer... Hence the arrival of Ian Gillan. The similarities to the two singers styles is obvious if your an Elvis fan. Gillan & Plant were both huge Elvis fans. In fact DEEP PURPLE is likely the only band to ever scare the shit out of Zeppelin with their own streched out "over top" improvisations.

31st night of the Chrome Dreams II tour, December 19, 2007, New York, New York! The final night of this leg of what turned out to be a seemingly non-stop 2 year tour. It was truly extraordinary-the varied setlists, Ben Keith, the venues. As things turned out, the Chrome Dreams tour was a warm-up for an extended touring schedule that included some amazing shows culminating in that Day in the Life performance with Sir Paul.

So now Neil’s recording with Crazy Horse again, publishing an autobiography and embarking on a two month tour, with rumors of Europe in the Spring. Tonight, NYCH play Central Park at the Global Festival, a charity benefit to end extreme poverty. Be there if you can, if not go to:

This one is zuma11's recording. Thanks for taping and sharing! There is one other source (edtyre) and a DVD in circulation, as far as I know.

Additional comments 
Unique recording of the complete Bilbao soundcheck at the Bullring. Very interesting to hear the soundchecks of Speedway at Nazareth, Junkie doll, Who's your baby now and Romeo and Juliet. The sound is OK. I have three parts of this soundcheck in better sound quality and I added them on this disc as bonus tracks. These bonus tracks feature the full version of Speedway at Nazareth, Romeo and Juliet and two minutes of Romeo and Juliet sounds of Mark's national which is really great to hear. Total disc time is about 74 minutes.

Pretty nice audience recording, one of the best so far from Spain. It's obviously very hard to make a good recording is Spain as the audience is really going crazy during the concerts. Anyway, this is a better recording, recorded with Mini Disc.

Taper's Comments: 
This comes from a boot CD that I got long ago on the Bondage Music label. I think I  got it in Japan on one of my three visits in the 90's, but I don't remember. While not a perfect mix, everything sounds pretty damn good. I do not know if the source of this was an FM broadcast, or if it's just a soundboard recording. Maybe somebody can shed some light on it's origins? I suspect it's an FM broadcast, with the commercials edited out. I have included scans of the artwork.

JEMS Master

Here is a new, uncirculated recording of a Journey show from Tacoma, Washington's new Tacoma Dome in 1983. This master audience recording was sent to me by JEMS for uploading. Thanks goes to JEMS for this recording and the many other excellent recordings they have shared with all of us over the years!

I'd hoped to upload this show a week ago on its 31st anniversary, but unfortunately, I didn't have time to get it done due to some other responsibilities. But here it is now, the concert from 31 years, 7 days ago today, Journey rocking Tacoma!

The Tacoma Dome venue was brand new when Journey played this show. In fact, Journey was the second band to play at the venue with the first act being David Bowie eight days earlier. This was also Journey's second from last show on their 1983 Frontiers tour Steve Perry tells the audience.

As for the audio on this show, it is a very clean recording. There are some clicks and pops at various points in the recording that are from the master tapes it seems. The sound is a little flat and it isn't a full range of sound type of recording either. The lower frequencies (or bass) end can be brought up if you so choose in whatever you are using for your playback equipment. However, as the show progresses it gets better and better in the quality of sound. I really like how clean the sound is throughout the whole show and there is very little audience noise too. Steve Perry's vocals are very up front in the recording also. In fact, all vocals are. The backup vocals are very easy to hear also. Overall, the mix in hearing the vocals and instruments is great but it just lacks in having captured the full range of frequencies to give it the full, rich and deep sound like you get with a superb recording. But I still love the show personally and I've enjoyed it each time I've listened as I was getting it ready to share.

I'd first made an EQ'ed copy (for my own use) before I had to leave town for a week. But after returning home, and as I started listening to this non EQ'ed copy being shared here today, I realized this copy without any EQ work likely sounds better anyhow. I was able to clean up more of the clicks and pops on the EQ'ed version using some filters for doing so, but it was with a program I despise and it wouldn't even work with 24/96 audio either. So I started from scratch and put together this non EQ'ed upload. Like many of you, I prefer the non EQ'ed copy of a show so I can do my own work on it if I want to. I like the work many people do on shows before sharing them and I do enjoy a great EQ job too! But having the unaltered sound is a big plus and that is what is being shared here for the first time today. Actually, this is the first time the show is being shared publicly at all EQ'ed or not.

I really appreciate JEMS sharing this show with me so I could finish getting it ready and share it with everyone else interested in it. Being a huge Led Zeppelin fan too, I was very familiar with the various JEMS transfers and work on a number of Led Zeppelin recordings, as well as other artist recordings too, that they've put out for us to collect and hear over the years. So to be asked if I'd be interested in preparing this Journey show to upload by them, well, I was very honored. So please be sure to thank the source of the sharing on this uncirculated master Journey recording...and that is JEMS!
