Ten Years of Bootlegs #6: Bob Dylan – The Complete Supper Club Soundboards, 1993

The Genuine Supper Club Shows (SBD) Vol 1 - F

Ten years ago I had just come home from living a year in Shanghai, China.  My wife and I were living with my folks until we could figure out what we were doing. Pretty quickly I started getting back into bootleg collecting but the methods had changed.  Certainly I had downloaded plenty of torrents before then but up until this time I’d also traded quite a bit and gotten heavily into vine trading.  By 2008 most of that had dried up. For awhile it was torrents, torrents, and nothing but torrents. I have no problem with torrents. I like torrents. I still torrent. But torrenting takes up a lot of bandwidth, time and disk space. This was still in the days when disk space was a real concern as hard drives did not have the massive capacity they have now. I would torrent shows, convert them to MP3 then back up the FLAC files onto CD and DVD disks. Eventually I found other MP3 blogs and it was heaven. Suddenly I could get cool shows at half the bandwidth and disk space. Now I try to avoid obtaining lossy files and I put everything on any number of external drives.

I don’t know why I mention this except that its interesting how things come back around. Writing these pieces always make me nostalgic. Always make me think of my life over the last ten years. Like I said, when this first started my life was in limbo. I didn’t have a real job, I was living with my parents, my wife and I had no idea what we were going to do. Since then we’ve moved at least five times into three different cities and two states. We did a couple of stints taking college students to Europe. We had a kid. I became a stay-at-home dad. Then my wife told me to get to work so she could stay home. Now I’m working with my Dad and brother. For the first time in my life I’m a homeowner.

Through all of this there has been the music. And the blog. There will always be music. I hope there is a blog for many years to come.

Anyways, writing these things always makes me nostalgic.

The 6th most downloaded bootleg of all time:

Bob Dylan – The Complete Supper Club Soundboards
Total hits: 3,302

For two nights in November of 1993 Dylan played four shows on two consecutive days at the Supper Club in New York City. They were acoustic performances presumably played as a warm-up to his appearance on MTV Unplugged the following night. Much like that album the performances here are excellent. If you don’t have this set I highly recommend it.

This is a collection of songs which (if the Deadhead’s Taping Compendium is to be believed) were to have formed
the basis for the first GD studio album of the 1990’s. The material appears to be a mix of live SBD recordings (possibly
with some minor overdubs) and rehearsals; its doubtful if any of this represents actuall studio recordings aimed at an
album release.

This came into circulation in mid-1997: several sources (including the Compendium) indicate that this was intentionally
put together – possibly by John Cutler and Phil Lesh – and seeded to trading circles to counteract several “last GD album”
bootlegs that had been produced in 1995/1996 (all sourced from 1990 thru 1995 SBD or AUD recordings.

The track listing is:

1. Lazy River Road (Garcia/Hunter) 6:01
2. Easy Answers (Hunter.Bralove/Weir/Welnick/Wasserman) 6:23
3. So Many Roads (Garcia/Hunter) 5:19
4. Wave To The Wind (Lesh/Hunter) 7:22
5. Eternity (Weir/Dixon) 7:20
6. The Days Between (Garcia/Hunter) 9:56
7. Way To Go Home (Welnick/Hunter/Bralove) 7:05
8. Corinna (Weir/Hart/Hunter) 9:33
9. Liberty (Garcia/Hunter) 6:00

History and linage: Julian Fowler September 2003

I obtained a cassette copy in the autum of the 1997 from a tree run on the rec.music.gdead newsgroup. In spite of the
numerous efforts to locate anything with a lower number of analog generations, I’ve not been able to discover anything
better than what I have now; nor does this material seem to circulate among DAT users or (until Now) CD traders.

I’ve therefore taken my casette copy and transferred it to the digital domain. The best guess that I have for the annalog
lineage is as follows:

live/rehearsal recordings (DAT and/or ADAT) > ? > cassette > at least one cassette generation > my cassette

I did the transfer using an AIWA AD-F850 tape deck, played directly into the inputs of a Yamaha DS-XG sound card.
I used CoolEdit 2000 v1.1 to do the initial analog > digital sampling, apply mild noise reduction (my source tape is
somewhat hissy, not surprising give the number of analog generations) and reduce the length of some of the
between-song gaps. I used CD Wav v1.73 to define track boundaries and mkwACT v0.97 to prepare a master
SHN disc (track boundaries verified using SHNtool.)

——Julian Fowler September 2003

From Rolling Stone, Apr 20, 1998

Although it’s common knowledge that the Grateful Dead were in the midst of recording when Jerry Garcia died almost three
years ago, former keyboardist Vince Welnick shed more light on the unfinished album in a recent conversation with the Rolling
Stone Network.

According to Welnick, the album was set to include such tour-tested songs as “Liberty,” “So Many Roads,” “Days Between,”
“Samba in the Rain,” “Way To Go,” “Corrina,” and “Easy Answers,” but Garcia passed away before the tracks could be
completed. “We had just about finished the basics when Jerry checked out,” Welnick said. “It’s a shame, because we spent
a lot of time in there.”

Although the studio tapes from the Grateful Dead’s would-be swan song are still around, Welnick doubts that the album can
be salvaged. “There weren’t even working vocals on some of the songs. There was also very little guitar. If they wanted to make
something of it, they’d probably have to splice in something from one of the show tapes.”

Grateful Dead spokesman Dennis McNally denied that anything will ever come of the album.
“Only [Grateful Dead guitarist] Bobby [Weir] ever thought that anything could be done, but it can’t. Jerry didn’t contribute to it.
Everyone else contributed to it, but Jerry just wasn’t with it. There’s not even a title, to my knowledge.”

Note(s):

1.) I cut approximately 30secs of tuning and snare drum hits from the beginning of set I so I could fit it all
on one 80min CD. I felt this was inconsequential, but if you would like this material, email me and
I’ll hook you up with it.

2.) There are fireworks at numerous time points. I did not correct for any of these “pops”.

3.) There was no optimal place to cut from disc 2 to disc 3. I liked the transition
from Drumz > Terrapin, so I preserved that.

4.) This particular set of FLACs is a re-transfer of my original source which was done via
an analog connection through a SBLive card. While I realize the UA-5 transfer is not bit-perfect,
it is a huge step up from my original source. Enjoy!

Personal Note (s):

My brief impressions:

This was a great show to have attended and my favorite of the year. As for the first set, The Playin’ > US Blues combo
was vibrant and alive as ever. Jimmy was on fire on this particular occasion. The Stagger Lee was fun, but Bobby forget
the words. I won’t comment on the Dylan as I don’t care too much for him, other than the Oh Boy was rockin’. Concerning
Dylan, future readers of this might want to know that taping Dylan during his own set on this tour was strictly prohibited.
His crew actually came back to the section to make sure our rigs were unplugged during his opening performances. He was
recorded every night regardless. The He’s Gone was moving, and I felt that Bobby did the song justice.
The Unbroken Chain…well listen for yourself.

Set II was simply amazing! Of particular interest was the WRS. This song shined, even if the LIG was somewhat
lacking with a drawn out jam and a mediocre final chorus. Now, the Terrapin > Morning Dew > Terrapin is perhaps
some of the best “The Dead” I have ever heard. Even though Phil sang it (adding that familiar Frankenstein-like effect),
the Terrapin was powerful. The transition into Morning Dew was subtle and I was F**kin glued to the music at this point!
Joan’s performance on this song was inspirational and touching. A lot of the old heads hated this, but I was
sincerely touched by this performance. The transition back into Terrapin was also subtle and not at all in your face.
To top it off, the Sugar Mag was fun and light-hearted, as needed after such a heavy run of jams.

Just my 2 Cents!
