Old Dutch Masters Archives series:

The ODm-archives series consists of recordings the ODM made over the years.
He sadly passed awy on 17 April 2016. Many of these recordings were just waiting on a harddisk as he was depending on friends to prepare these for upload.
The man was just too busy working and visiting concerts.

Notes from Mat Brewster:

UPDATE: As you can read in the comments Gerbrand has pointed out this has been officially released. As such I’ve removed the link.

As I previously indicated I’ve been going through a folder on an external drive full of shows I’ve previously uploaded and re-uploading any shows with dead links. Every now and again I find a show in that folder that doesn’t seem to have ever been uploaded. I suspect that some of these have simply been lost due to me changing blog sites and hosters over the years. I could not find this particular show anywhere on the blog using various search methods. I did find this post that covers some similar ground but is definitely not this bootleg. When I went to upload it on Amazon I came to find out that I’d previously uploaded it last year (or at least it has the same date, somebody let me know if the download leads to something different).

I don’t know if I posted it and somehow the search terms I’m using aren’t leading me to it. Or if I just simply forgot to post it at all. Or if maybe I posted it and then somebody told me it had been officially released and I deleted the post completely (and if that’s the case somebody let me know again and I’ll remove the links).

If I’ve never posted it before and if its not officially released (and I did poke around for that possiblity) then please do enjoy the show. Its a good one.

Comments from the original uploader:
I didn’t edit this show. There is a fade at the end of d2t04. I guess this covered a tape flip? Space continues through d2t05.
I felt no need to use wavmerge to retrack the original wavs.
There are unknown cassette generations – but my guess would be one generation.

A Little Slow Down


A friend of the site just sent me an incredible gift – 4 Terabytes worth of shows! That’s a whole lot of music to sort through. Instead of pouring through his lists of shows and comparing them to mine and coming up with a list of things I didn’t have I just asked him to send me all his Dylan, Van, Neil shows. It seemed easier to sort it out here rather than spend a month looking at lists (or maybe I just wanted the shows now!)  He also sent a lovely assortment of other artists as well.

I have them now and am trying to sort them. I’ll be unloading the hard drive he sent me and putting them on one of mine so that I can load his back up and send it to him. Call that the grand-daddy of all trades! Then I’ll be sorting through it all and trying to organize all my files over several hard drives.

As such I’m going to take a break from uploading shows for a little while. I still have a pretty big backlog of stuff that’s on Amazon but has yet been posted on the blog. What I’ve decided to do is slow the number of posts down to about one a day so that I don’t burn through that log too quickly.

It shouldn’t take too terribly long to get things sorted reasonably well. I’m thinking a couple of weeks, tops. After that I’ll get back to my regular speed. I now have a lifetimes worth of music to share. Enjoy.
