Great show! I had 2nd row seats for this, but they were way on the side.. As most people know the sound sucks at The World Music Theater. This show is a mediocre aud. Would assume it would sound better based on location, but, nope.. Cool show though and a very listenable recording.

I only have one request, that you don't take these files and post them on other torrent sites. I have many shows to upload. I will upload, let them get seeded by others and after a majority have downloaded the files completely, remove my files so I can seed something new. I prefer to manage my own shows on DIME and The Traders Den. I will upload to other sites when I wish to for select shows. Thanks for honoring my wishes in advance. 

This is “CBG Classic Master Video Series Vol. 46”. 

I usually do one show release a week, but since I paused for a few months in releasing shows, I decided to release both the Lita Ford and the headliner, Poison, this weekend together. 

I first saw Poison when they warmed up Ratt back on their first tour in New Haven, CT in 1986 and then a few times warming up David Lee Roth on the Skyscraper tour. This was the first time I saw them headline a show. It was a beautiful night in Connecticut at this Lake Compounce amusement park venue. The best place and safest place to go was on the lawn where there wasn’t security walking through the lawn as so many shed venues now. This was a new venue built with a small concrete floor where they set up chairs and then a big lawn that sloped up slightly from the back of the seats. There was no cover over the seats or lawn so the sound was not muffled or echoed by a roof. The only thing was, because it was nestled in the woods with housing developments around it, they had to moderate the volume at this place and didn’t really crank the music too loud. This would later prove to be an issue with this band, but we will save that for another day. 

When the band hit the stage, it was full on energy. The album ‘Open Up and Say…Ahh!’ was just released in May 1988 and they had come around through the area in March-April and returned with in July warming up David Lee Roth. Now they were headlining in September. You could tell that they were thrilled with being the headliner finally. The show went smoothly with no issues from security and this Lake Compounce place was becoming one of my favorite places to film in a lawn situation. Enjoy Poison in Bristol, CT as they were starting to hit it big! CBG5150 Posted to DIME 2016-11-27.

Sound quality of this LP is slightly better than Drew's tape source. Drew's tape has some distortion in the bottom end and isn't quite as clear, but they do sound very similar. Pick your poison. This LP is reasonably quiet with just some surface noise in the quietest parts. There are some tape-chewy spots and dropouts that could not be helped, but overall this is a very enjoyable recording. I would rate the sound quality of this LP as A-, better than the B/B+ rating this tape usually gets. - J

Full pre-prebroadcast version (originally broadcast on MTV) of this video without any of the interviews that were recorded and mixed in afterwards. The concert video is sequenced correctly also unlike the broadcast with Money Can't Buy -> Radioactive -> Live In Peace in their correct order with no video missing between songs. This also has a little bit more video after Midnight Moonlight than on the commonly circulating copies with the interviews mixed in. This still has the same cut in the video towards the end of the drum solo into Someone To Love but here the cut is not patched with any audio from the board tape like other copies out there. Video and audio are decent but better quality copies do circulate which are half mixes of this tape source with the broadcast tape.

So this might be more for completists. I also stuck on a press conference with Roth and the Swedish media in the days leading up to the gig. It runs about 30 minutes and is a fun and somewhat informative listen.

04 - Whole Lotta Love 

Two completely new shows that have recently surfaced, pulled out of the hat by Empress Valley once again, how do they manage to release so many exciting new shows I wonder. The sound quality for Birmingham is almost very good, with Plant's voice talking in between songs sounding slightly distant. This source is from the master tape. Empress Valley have done a very good job in beefing up this tape, and the CDs sound louder and punchier than the master tape. There is a lot of tape wobble during Stairway To Heaven and the beginning of the Whole Lotta Love Medley. One point of great interest is that early on in The Rain Song John Paul Jones has big problems with the Mellotron, which goes out of tune, and he had to scurry across to the organ and play that instrument for the rest of the song. The first and only time I think in a Led Zeppelin concert, most surprising considering what a precocious instrument the Mellotron is. Brighton is a real gem, sadly only a fragment, taken from a first generation copy. It was recorded by a teenager who had little money for cassettes, and he recorded over much of this concert later at a Rory Gallagher concert. What a terrible shame as it was an amazing concert by all accounts. The sound on this is very good indeed. (Jules McTrainspotter Sept 03) 

Sweet Brummy Roll 3CD Empress Valley Supreme Discs EVSD 243-245 
Birmingham Odeon 16th December 1972/Brighton Dome 20th December 1972 

The latest offering from the premiere Japanese label is 2 shows from the late '72/early '73 UK tour, I was looking forward to hearing this release as it's the first appearance of these two shows which were played only 4 days apart. The tape starts off with a few words from the venue MC telling every one that the show is about to start. The band take the stage to a comment of "Strike a light!" from one of the tapers. The tape overloads for a few seconds as Rock & Roll starts but soon settles down to a reasonable audience recording with Bonzo's drums a little down in the mix. Plant's voice is in relatively good shape for this show as he hits those high notes during the verse to Over The Hills And Far Away. Unfortunately, none of Plant's between song comments the his home crowd can be made out due to the taper being up in the stalls, this lack of volume also affects the bow solo in Dazed And Confused and the beginning of Stairway To Heaven. The Rain Song contains a garbled section of tape which also affects the other side of the C120 cassette during Dazed And Confused. Dazed And Confused interestingly contains a snippet of the descending riff from 'In The Light' during the final section. The Brighton tape is clearer than that from Birmingham and all instruments are well defined, unfortunately we only have 50 minutes of this show containing Black Dog, Misty Mountain Hop, Since I've Been Loving You (only 3 minute's worth), Whole Lotta Love and an encore of Heartbreaker. Some sources state that the band played a medley of Christmas songs during the encore, well if they did, it's not here folks. Top marks to EVSD for finding these two new shows, it's just a pity that the shows weren't swopped around, eg the full Brighton show and 50 minutes of Birmingham because the Brighton show is a corker!

This is a very nice audience recording as the samples will prove. RIP Glenn Frey. I had to create an .md5, there was only the info file with an .ffp on the text and the tracks. I'm not sure which category to put it in, Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Rock n i settled on Rock. Enjoy this, i am. So I'm sharing this here, just as i got it back in the day (around 2006 so new lineage is add the following to the lineage in the info: -> transferred to DVD in .flac form -> transferred to internal HDD -> used TLH to combine info, md5 and audio files into a torrent -> Dime -> YOU!) and have changed nothing below this intro. So, without further ado, i present....

Welcome back to the MRDR Master Series Volume 8 with a superb capture of Steve’s Verona stop on his “Genesis Revisited II” Tour. 

According to Genesis-Movement there is one other incomplete audio capture for this stop recorded on a Canon Digital Ixus 85 15 camera. The brothers Mauro & Dario got a superb pull that other than the usual de-clicking, azimuth adjustment/DC offset and extraction of offending audience noises there was very little to do to the file. 

Looking at other setlists around the same time it appears that “Shadow Of The Hierophant” was not often played on this tour. 

Highly recommended for the excellent performance and beautiful capture...samples provided and artwork included. 

Thanks to Mauro & Dario for their continued efforts to document the Italian music scene both audio and visually.

Very nice recording, with Pink Floyd that play as for rehearsals, very different from all the equal gigs 1987-89, when they play as a machine. The songs order is different too, and they play Shine On You Crazy Diamond for the first Time after 10 years, and in the same place (Montreal). Unfortunately, the sax solo of SOYCD is miss...

notes by the taper
20 years of the First concert by Morphine in Portugal. I was there and it was a blast. All this festival was. It was the first organized festival of the modern age. There have been festival before but not regular events as it became from this point on. Looking back it was a great moment in time with a great line up and fabulous performances and Morphine was one of them. Playing in day time, i believe it was around 6 or 7pm, their show was tight short and great surprise for many people there. They were straight to our hearts and stayed there until Mark's death. Every show in Portugal was a party you didn't want to miss. This recording is a proshot from the cameras on stage and it is not complete because the cameras were not working since the begining of the show due to sunlight on the screens as the sun went down the cameras were on and filmed the last 5 songs. Somehow i managed to get my hands on a gen1 copy of this video and it is what i am sharing here today. It is a short but cool video with good sound.

Peter Gabriel - 1977-04-10 - Los Angeles, CA (FM/FLAC)

Early show 

FM broadcast from master reel -- from JEMS archives

* Audio Cleaning Lab was used to apply the following effects to the source recording: 
- Moderate de-hissing and de-noising (adaptive) 
- Boost higher range (primarily 13 kHz) 
- Boost lower range (primarily 170 Hz) 

The mix on the broadcast improved approximately 15 minutes in; the upper registers opened up and the stereo separation improved slightly. I tried to apply additional EQ lightly on the first portion so that the change appears seamless.

In mid-February 2014, "metro_cubo" shared a variety of sources of this famous Peter Gabriel show, several of which are still on the tracker as of this writing (March 2014). This inspired the JEMS team to pull out and digitize an uncirculated master reel from their (apparently bottomless) archives, and they asked me to see what I could do with it. I was happy to contribute what I could; this radio broadcast was widely bootlegged in the 1980s and among the first bootleg LPs I ever bought. The quality doesn't really hold up to the standards of modern FM broadcasts, but I have an attachment to it because I played it to death while I was growing up, and it remains one of my favorite solo Peter Gabriel shows. 

The back-story, for those who don't know it -- this show took place roughly a month into Peter's first solo tour; he played two nights (4/9-4/10) at the Roxy in Los Angeles, with two performances each night. This recording captures the early show on the second night, carried live on various radio stations around the United States. According to the DJ chatter, this marks the first attempt at a live nationwide simulcast of a concert performance. You'll hear during the encore break (d2t8) a partial listing of the stations who carried the performance as it happened; it must have been quite a breakthrough to do this in real-time in the 1970s. 

Given how closely Peter was associated with Genesis, it's interesting that even on his first tour he chose to focus almost entirely on material from his only solo album, with only one track ("Back in NYC") from his Genesis catalog. The 80-minute set was filled out with covers (Marvin Gaye's "Ain't That Peculiar" and the Kinks' "All Day and All Of The Night") and even an unreleased track ("A Song Without Words," which later became "Indigo"). Listening to this show makes one appreciate what a strong album his debut release was -- there is literally not a weak song in the set. 

The performance, like every other show I've heard from this tour, was fantastic, augmented with a top-notch band that featured Robert Fripp (performing under the pseudonym "Dusty Rhodes," who according to legend remained entirely behind a curtain for the whole show). If you don't have any of the multiple releases of this concert (or for that matter, anything from this tour), it's worth the download. 

In terms of the recording, it is very good given the era -- but not perfect. The vocals distort a bit during the louder portions, and the mix is kind of shaky in points. Furthermore, there was a fair amount of hiss in this recording (and probably evident in the broadcast itself, given that this source is a master reel that has probably not been played much). The tweaks I made in Audio Cleaning Lab removed the majority of the hiss and surprisingly brought out nuances in the guitars and keyboard; the vocals are still too low for my liking, but overall this is a very enjoyable recording of a great concert.

Sit back and allow yourself to enjoy this 2 hour complete performance of Springsteen on Broadway. 
As many of us can't afford the average ticket price of around $500, consider this a gift to the community. Take that money and do something special with pay the rent or make your car payment. Seriously Bruce, a top ticket price of $850?!? Nevertheless, I digress.... 

The sound quality on this recording is terrific. Perhaps as good as it can possibly get from an audience recording. Kudos to Johnny98 who may have snagged the ultimate recording seat in the Walter Kerr Theatre. 

The storytelling is vintage Bruce and, while many of them are lifted from his incredible autobiography, Born To Run, it's still a treat to hear him tell the stories and then play a relevant song from his long and illustrious songbook. Growin' Up is delightful to listen to and brings a smile to my face each time I play it but for my money, My Father's House and Tenth Avenue Freezeout are the standout moments of the show. If the story of his dad doesn't bring tears to your eyes, you need to have your pulse checked. And the tears of joy that fell down my cheeks as he plays Tenth, and talks about the E Street Band, Clarence in particular, brings back nearly 40 years of memories. So plug in your headphones, sit back and enjoy Springsteen on Broadway. And remember, Ladies & Gentlemen, Welcome to the Walter Kerr this time we ask you to turn off all cellphones...the performance is about to begin.
