Lossless Bootleg Bonanza: Mississippi John Hurt – Philadelphia, PA (07/XX/1964)

02. Avalon Blues
03. Nobody’s Dirty Business
04. Make Me A Pallet On Your Floor (removed, officially released)
05. Stack-O’Lee Blues (Stagger Lee)

From the original uploader.

This has to be the best sounding MJH concert ever!

Many, many thanks to Dime member Candleman for allowing me to post this unbelievable torrent with corrections. His original notes are included with this torrent.

This show was previously circulating as being from 1970. As Mr. Hurt died in 1966, I conducted a search to determine the correct date. Although I don’t have the exact day of the month, photographs of him taken at the show do exist and are documented as being from July 1964. As the original torrent had the 1970 date on the file names, the file names were changed to generic FLAC numbers (01, 02, etc). No changes to the music itself were made. One addition was made to the setlist, with the identification of track two as “Avalon Blues”. A new md5 canister was also generated. Therefore, if you have this show, your original FLAC files will probably not work.

I need to tell you a story:

The subject of “Stagger Lee” has always been of interest to me. In case you don’t know, Mr. Hurt recorded what is probably the definitive version of this track in 1928. The incident itself is another matter entirely…

All of the conflicting stories of Lee Sheldon’s murder of William Lyons in 1895 over a Stetson hat supposedly stem from a single newspaper article in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Even the Wikipedia version has no references to it, only hearsay. How awful that no one actually knows and that everyoone is making their own version of the story.

To me, that smacks of pure laziness. You would think actual research would have been done by all the different sources quoting it before they opened their big mouths!

Yours truly found the specific newspaper archive organization which has storage rights for this paper during that time period. I also joined Wikipedia in the process, so I could contribute the results. Although they generally don’t do research, the archive organization agreed to make an exception in this case. Here is where we stand right now:

As of today, they are still looking for the article. They did find the obituary for a man named William Lyons in another St. Louis paper, and that is being sent to me (I have to pay a small amount for everything, but it’s worth it). His death is listed in December of 1895. They say there may or may not be a surviving article on surrounding days in the Globe-Democrat (which would be a fantastic thing if they find it), but at least now, someone is actually making an active search.

To me, this is at least a solid shred of evidence that this event actually occured.

Interesting, eh?

Lossless Bootleg Bonanza: Steel Mill (Early Bruce Springsteen Band) – Asbury Park, NJ (11/27/70)

I’m officially an idiot. Somehow this show got tucked into my Bob Dylan folder and so when I converted it to MP3 and loaded it into iTunes I labeled it as Dylan. It shows how often I convert thing and label them in iTunes that I never noticed this doesn’t make any sense for a Dylan show. In fact I didn’t realize it was an early Springsteen show until just now. Which of course means you get MP3s labeled as Dylan. And the FLAC folder is labeled as BD not BS. Sorry folks, sometimes I’m too dumb for words.

This posting is courtesy of Porbeagle from the Stone Pony London site who sent me these discs to post for him.

Track 05 is just dead air between tracks, it also appears that tracks 7 & 8 should be just one track, but I left the tracks the way EAC ripped them rather than edit them.

Early Show: DANCING IN THE STREETS (13:49)
DO IT NOW (13:15)
I CAN’T TAKE IT (9:07)
OH MAMA (4:25)
CHANGE IT (9:58)
TRAIN RIDE (13:49)

TWO shows, triple bill, with the bottom-billed STEEL MILL opening for the 2nd billed CACTUS and headliner BLACK SABBATH (fronted by a spooked Ozzy Osbourne, who received death threats before the show). The above-mentioned 7-song, setlist comes from a very recently surfaced excellent audio quality soundboard and represents the complete 76-minute performance from the early show, with no continuity breaks in the audio. This is not Steel Mill at its best, but it does contain the previously uncirculating “Do It Now”. The original master tape had the recording date on it and, additionally, there is verifying commentary by Robbin Thompson during the performance. About 8 minutes into “Dancing” the generator power fails for 12 seconds, much to the frustration of Bruce who comments “we must be the Guinea Pigs here tonight”. According to an attendee recollection each of the three bands played similar length sets. After the end of the evening Springsteen spent about an hour backstage jamming with Cactus bassist Tim Bogart. There is no circulating audio from the late show.

36 Everybody’s Trying To Be My Baby

The ninth volume in our ‘all the good titles are taken already’ overview of The Beatlesí live career. This brings us to the end of their second U.S. tour and, unfortunately, to the end of the surviving 1965 shows. Weíd love to hear it a tape from their December British tour.

Most of these recordings already sounded fine, although the less said about Minneapolis the better. Even so, we still ran our proprietary audio clean-up system. We think the re-edit and re-eq of the afternoon San Fransisco show is the most significant improvement.

Our Hollywood Bowl Deluxe Edition has different edits/mixes, but these are the unedited stereo tapes of the 1965 Hollywood Bowl shows. (We also fixed a tape stretch in I Feel Fine on the 30th. Wow.)

Source Notes
This is the VLS Version of the Van Morrison Winterland Show, it is not an upgrade or a remaster. It represents an audio cleaning of the original VHS files that were converted to DVD LPCM sound files and then tweaked with Audiology and Roxio Sound Wave to give the sound a much richer audio. You must remember the source and also take this for what it is on face value, a good update of an early Van classic performance. This VLS version also includes some songs that were not available on the original CDR versions of this show

Flaws that were fixed by happy jack with audacity

There will be, and are, other recordings of this show. Saw one guy off to the side in the front row taping, that should be a nice up front sounding capture. Saw a guy recording from the balcony, and there is one from the center but further back already on etree. Don’t know what will be the best, but I do know none will have the absolute dead center recording spot this one does. I was in row H, with my head right even with the bass drum, as centered as centered could be. The recording sounds a bit more distant than I would like/expect from such a close proximity to the stage. They were running a bit of a stereo mix, or I was getting that effect from the stage monitors, and I believe Jecklin Head captured that pretty well. I gotta say, the sound was lacking a bit of something, for one Nels’ guitar was low and Jeff’s vocals were a bit buried at first. Things improved as the show progressed. Nice show. Cool light show, which probably won’t come across on the audio tape. Tracks done on the fly so they are not perfect. The only thing missing is the encore applause. Enjoy. If you were there you understand the title.

At least 2nd gen tape. I’m not sure how I got this tape almost 20 years ago however I’m sure it was the result of some kinda trade. Others copies I’m sure are around. 1992 was a well documented year for Lou fans – I have 3 sbds from that year but here’s a decent Aud recording from my home town and one of my fav old hangs (The Grand Emporium).
