This recording here comes directly from the "Men With Microphones" archive. "MWM" started in the 70ies in South Germany with analog recording equipment, and at least two of them are still recording sometimes (since the 90ies on DAT, and, lazy as we are, since lately with small, handheld WAV-recorders on SD-cards). The "MWM" startet as a project of friends sharing their hobbies together.

The third GN'R concert in Israel (again at the same location). 
This time the band made a triumphant return with 2 original members, Slash and Duff. 
According to media reports, it was one of the largest ever stages built for a concert in the country. 
The concert was sold-out and gathered a record audience of some 62000 people. 
The band started to play at 8 PM sharp and took only short breaks, during their extensive set. 
Despite the heat and rivers of sweat, they delivered a memorable performance. 
Also, there were some cool fireworks and video-art from start to finish. 
Despite the usual crowd noise, I was able to get a pretty good capture. 
Nevertheless you'll hear a lot of noise, so be careful when you listen to this with headphones.

Fleetwood Mac was part of a triple bill: The Flock, Fleetwood Mac and The Grateful Dead on 1/30/70 and 1/31/70. The Dead famously got busted by the New Orleans cops in the night of February 1, while Fleetwood Mac narrowly escaped by getting lost on the way to the hotel (although they were probably not the target anyway). The Grateful Dead members (minus two) and hanger-on’s were released after a couple hours jailtime, but not before having to pay a huge amount of bail money. So, the next day, a benefit concert was organized at the Warehouse and Fleetwood Mac agreed to open for the Dead once more, since they had a day off. The concert attracted a pretty large crowd through sheer word-of-mouth.

Supposedly, the drinking water was spiked with LSD by the Dead's notorious soundman/guru on all three occasions. If Peter Green drank of it, this would certainly have been noticeable on the first set as his speeches are unhinged and lacking coherence. He sounds more together on the 2nd set, even though his announcement to 'I Gotta Mind To Give Up Living' is sort of disturbing. His mood seems best during the third set. Green's playing and singing, however, is first-class throughout as always.  

Much has been written about Peter Green's rise and especially his demise. As sad as his passing is, to me the artist Peter Green died about 50 years ago. The personal trauma he suffered that eventually led to his departure from FM in May 1970 was not something that started overnight. The initial signs of a mental breakdown already came in 1968, when he first encountered LSD in the States (again, courtesy of Owsley) and began to feel the pressures of the industry when the group had a surprise hit with 'Albatross', both of which he did not respond particularly well to. However, as erratic as his behavior became, the music just got better and better. The group's third album 'Then Play on' (Sept. 1969) was a commercial and artistic success and by being one of the first bands with the asset of having two master lead guitarists, Fleetwood Mac were an unbeatable force as a live-act.

This document captures the group at the height of their powers and it has the added benefit of the band not being under any "recording stress", unlike the Boston shows from a couple days later. The late Grateful Dead's archivist Dick Latvala was responsible for leaking the first two sets to the public in the 90s. On cassette, but still a holy grail by all bootleg standards and reportedly Owsley was really pissed off about it. The third set comes mostly from Wolfgang's vault and circulates only as a lossy source (please correct me if I'm wrong). It has lesser fidelity than set 1+2, but the band is smoking and it's easily the most energetic performance.

For those wondering why 'Coming Your Way' on set 2 cuts after three and a half minutes; I discovered that the second part of this song, which is tacked-on on all Warehouse bootlegs, does NOT BELONG there. That second part comes from the version played on 1 February, so that's where I put it. Same goes for 'Tiger' and 'Twist and Shout'; these songs are from 1 February and not one day earlier as commonly believed. I suspect Latvala put those three bits there on the tape he sent out.

The source material here may not be able to compete with a multi-track recording and there are various tape flaws, but it really is a jewel for the greatest part. I'm not sure if any of this is ever gonna come out on an official release from the mastertapes but if not, this compilation might be an acceptable alternative. It's still a bootleg but about as good as they get.

So here it is; for the first time all three sets together in correct order and everything newly remastered for an optimal listening experience.

PS (July 2020)

P.S.: Peter Green is a musical hero of mine, especially as a young adult his music resonated with me like nothing else. He had the best guitar tone ever, and played with the utmost intensity. I hope his soul has found peace.

P.P.S.: Avoid the Before The Beginning 3CD set (2019) on Columbia; it is a grab-bag of whatever bootleg stuff they could find with atrocious mastering and fake applause. It's so bad, it could have been one those expired copyright releases.


Excerpt from an interview from 2014 with Sandra Elsdon, Peter's Girlfriend from 1967 to 1971:

"I first met Peter Green at a club called the Cromwellian, where I also first saw Hendrix play. Peter wrote ‘Black Magic Woman’ about me (his nickname for me was Magic Mamma) as well as ‘Sandy Mary’ and ‘Long Grey Mare’. For me, it was the deepest and most soulful relationship of my youth. He was a very dedicated, brilliant, soulful musician, and a very kind and humble man. But he had some pretty deep issues.

I think he’d suffered a lot as a child. He once opened up to me about the pain of the discrimination and bullying he’d suffered as a Jewish boy living in the East End. I think he drew heavily on that pain in his music. He was a sensitive soul, and shouldn’t have messed around with mind-altering drugs. That’s what really activated his psychosis. I remember, when he came home from Fleetwood Mac’s first US tour, how the drugs were starting to have a bad effect on him. I begged him not to experiment more."

Did you ever wonder just how often a die-hard Kansas fan (you know, the one that travels oceans just to see them perform in their hometown) happens to stumble upon a previously undocumented pristine soundboard recording from the early days of the band? A date that isn't even listed in the most elaborate of Kansas tour dates archives? Speaking for myself, I can count the occasions on two fingers... The last time it happened was the Villanova Field House show. No, wait... that was an FM, this is straight from the mixing desk. And it's even from the year prior to it: 1975, the early stages of the Masque tour! To my knowledge it never aired. Well, about the show... it's short. Way too short, if you'd ask me. Kansas (together with Ted Nugent) was opening for Aerosmith at the Paramount Theater in Portland this night. So we don't get Mysteries and Mayhem > The Pinnacle or Lonely Street. But you won't hear me complain, because what's more important is what we do get: a raw & fast-paced, hard rocking show in a quality that almost rivals an official release. Yes, that's right: rivals an official release.

Some words from the BEEB:

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Rolling Stones we delve into the BBC vaults to deliver some timeless Stones archive. From the early days of their career and some unforgettable performances on Top of the Pops with 'The Last Time', 'Let's Spend The Night Together' and 'Get Off Of My Cloud' through the late 60s and early 70s era of prolific song writing when the band were knocking out a classic album every other year and offering up such classics as 'Honky Tonk Women' and 'Gimme Shelter'.

The late 70s brought a massively successful nod to disco with Miss You and the early 80s a stomping return to form with the rock 'n' roll groove of Start Me Up. Peppered amongst the performances are snippets of wisdom from the two main men - The Glimmer Twins, aka Mick and Keith. Plus as a special treat, some lost footage of the band performing 19th Nervous Breakdown on Top of the Pops in 1966 - recently discovered in a BBC documentary from the 1960s about women with depression.

06: midnight ravers
07: stir it up

10: kinky reggae

This was almost certainly the first time I ever heard a Bob Marley concert, probably the first reggae show I ever heard, and the same may well be true for many others, too. This is the BBC broadcast, the  very beginning of the opening announcement is missing but it doesn't seem like it's missing much because it starts with the announcer saying: "Here's Bob Marley & the Wailers with a Rastafarian chant"... and the opening song begins. There is a tape flip just before the last song, Kinky Reggae but you probably won't even notice that in this torrent. All the songs and between song announcer dialogue are complete. The reception is clean and the sound of this is excellent FM stereo, recorded from a broadcast on WBCN in the late 1970's (probably 77 or 78). I know this show was previously posted here on dime but I had to delete my DL of that one immediately because it failed my standard for clipless torrents. the audio files were solidly clipped throughout the concert and I couldn't even listen to it. This one comes with the Glasnost Radio Productions assurance that it is not clipped, pegged, glitched or gapped, and sounds like an FM show should sound. This was in the day when BBC concerts were broadcast on vinyl and it has great stereo seperation, an art often lost in more recent FM broadcasts. WBCN had a good turntable, and I didn't hear any scratches or skips in this broadcast (which did happen on occasion in some of the recorded concerts). This is good vintage Marley, and probably the best quality yet posted of it. I rarely played this thing because it's on 2 tapes and for a long time I couldn't find it, but this torrent comes entirely from my master cassettes, making this a 3 step torrent from glasnostrd19 to Marley nation. This one is my oldest, but probably also the best quality recording I have of BMW that is suitable for upload since it is my only Marley master. I don't remember which deck I had for this one, I've been through alot of cassette decks, especially before 87, but it was a decent one (definitely long before I got a Naka.)
