  1. Well ‘That’s All Folks….’

    well that’s all the 2000 gigs those wondrous felines at CC recorded and released

    These boots are old and dear friends of mine. I hope they give you as much of a buzz as they have me over the years!

    Big thanks to Mat for the swift and efficient posting of all the links and for locating (or creating) the text files of all the track details for the blog

    Munster is the most lauded of the gigs, IMO Sheffield is also a stunner, many raved over the Portsmouth gigs.

    The final two london gigs are the most overlooked but were truly excellent. Check out 4th time around from the 5th, astonishingly overlooked by all the tour compilers!

    Overall the excellence and consistency of the performances, and the quality of the recordings make these boots a truly unique set

    I was fortunate enough to have been at both of the London gigs and Bob and the boys certainly finished the tour and went out in style.

    IMO these boots are a great record of the days when Bob’s voice was sweet as and the terrific triple guitar fix dominated the mix, unlike now where the guitar is somewhere behind the rear speaker stack!

    It also seems an appropriate moment to thank Mat again for finding and sharing with us all the great shows from the US legs of the tour.

    The Washington State Uni and Cedar rapids shows are superb performances and great recordings too.

    If anyone is interested these CC boots are well reviewed at Bob’s boots, where they all score a solid 9 from the hardest judge of sound qual around.

    There are also some ex CC boots from the 2001 and 2002 tours. Maybe i’ll get around to posting some of them when the 2000 well finally dries up.

    Until then, take care all and enjoy the ride


    ps if anyone is interested in ‘lineage’;

    For the majority and unless otherwise steted

    traded CDR (from trusted source) > WAV (using WinAmp Pro) > FLAC (with TLH)

    nO EAC or logs or any of that fashionable stuff. I cannot reconcile looking up online log tables and simultaneous conversion to FLAC as being conducive to good ripping (regardless of what the bytes may say).

    Instead a more ‘Old skool’ approach to quality control. Power pc, freshly and regularly rebooted, off line.

    Basically just decent quality kit and basic common sense.

  2. This set is downright phantastic and the quality ist just amazing.

    Mat and Dave, thank you very much for this generous share!

  3. Thanks again DylanDave. I’ve actually not given these a spin yet, but will be doing so soon. Can’t wait.

    I’m really and truly almost out of 2000 now. I’ve got a couple of more things to post but then I’ll be moving on. Not sure where I’ll go from here. I was thinking of doing the few shows I’ve got from 1973 and them moving to 1990, but I’m gonna have to think about it.

  4. 1973? must be typo methinks

    My tip is late 89 thru early 90. Much more interesting than the rather flat summer gigs. Things pick up on the later Beacon shows and Fall tour in general.

    I should be able to contribute some useful fills if required, but i’d be interested to see any recent versions which turn up on the torrents

    Anyway i’m here really to tip you off to visit g101. page 1 currently contains a couple of very interesting and recent one-off Neil gigs, a couple of recent Bob gigs (SPOT I think), and a couple of recently released Bruce gigs on Crystal Cat. Also Mr JTT’s take on Van San Selmpo 73. Should be enough to warrant a visit.
