JEMS is pleased to release the third in a series of recordings made by legendary taper Mike Millard, AKA Mike the MICrophone, best known for his masters of Led Zeppelin in and around LA circa 1975-77. For further details on how these tapes came to be lost and found again, as well as JEMS’ history with Mike Millard, please refer to the notes in Vol. One http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=500680

Our third installment is from the final performance of Dylan’s seven-night residency at the Universal Amphitheater in June 1978 (imagine playing a 27-30 song set for seven consecutive nights without a day off). Once again, the recording is not quite complete. Millard’s notes state, “Missed first song and most of second song.” In truth he missed the first three songs (the show-opening “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” “Love Her With a Feeling” and “Baby Stop Crying”) before he gets his trusty Nakamichi 550 up and running during “Mr Tambourine Man.”

Lossless Bob has no fewer than five entries for this show, though only identifies two distinct recordings, both of which are complete from the start, so, like its predecessors, it is likely this Millard master is uncirculated. And like nights one and three, what Millard did record is impressive. Samples provided.

We’ve marked this Recording A as, remarkably, Millard sent SG two different recordings of the show, done with two different tape decks and two different sets of microphones. The notes on each clearly state that Mike himself made both recordings, so while there is no other known case where Millard ran two rigs, we can only assume that on this night he did or perhaps he did so with an uncredited partner, as we know he frequently had helpers. Recording B will be Vol. Four in our series.

Bobtalk is particularly rich this night, including a highly entertaining moment towards the end of the show where Dylan says hello to some celebrities in the crowd, among them Joni Mitchell, Raquel Welch and Tom Petty. The transcription on Olof’s invaluable Still On The Road website also notes that Dylan offers that his favorite band is “a band I saw play with Bobby Blue Bland, 1968 I recall in New York. And this band comes as close to that band as I can find.” OK, now we know.

The June 7 set also includes three songs not featured in the sets on the other two Millard recordings from this run, “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right,” “Simple Twist of Fate” and “Oh Sister.”

Thanks again to WG for finding the tapes and to SG for providing JEMS with another fascinating chapter of taping history. Also, JEMS is greatly appreciative of the work of mjk5510 for his continued assistance in getting these recordings into your hands. He is a vital part of the process at this point.

JEMS is pleased to release the fourth in a series of recordings made by legendary taper Mike Millard, AKA Mike the MICrophone, best known for his masters of Led Zeppelin in and around LA circa 1975-77.

Incredibly, our fourth installment is an alternative SECOND Millard recording from the final performance of Dylan’s seven-night residency at the Universal Amphitheater in June 1978. That’s right, the same performance as Volume 3 of our series, but a different recording made by Millard with a completely different rig. In addition to his familiar AKG 451E mics (CK-1 capsules) > Nakamichi 550 set up, Millard ran a pair of Nakamichi CM-50 microphones into a Uher CR-240 cassette recorder. We believe this is the first verified example of Millard recording on different gear and he uses the same set up for future shows in our series.

This recording also marks the first time in the run that Mike was able to capture the show from the very start, the instrumental version of “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.” So we get the beginning of the show, but not the full encore, as the last song of the night, “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” is omitted. (Note: It can be found on the Vol. Three recording of the same performance.)

The question you are probably asking yourself right about now is: OK, that’s all interesting minutiae, but which recording is better? I would give the nod to this one, which sounds just a tad sharper, clearer and fuller. Samples provided.

Lossless Bob has no fewer than five entries for this show, though only identifies two distinct recordings, both of which are complete, so, like its predecessors, it is likely this Millard master is uncirculated.

We’ve marked this Recording B to distinguish it from Mike’s other tape from the night. The notes on each reel (see image in the comments) clearly state that Mike himself made both recordings, so while there is no other known case where Millard ran two rigs, we can only assume that on this night he did or perhaps he did so with an uncredited partner, as we know he frequently had helpers.

Speaking of those helpers, JEMS’ Millard series has sparked a lot of comments and dialogue. A fellow taper we’ve gotten in touch with was one of those helpers who attended many shows with Mike. He wanted to let folks know that despite what you may have read, Mike was no loner. He had several close friends, many of whom shared his passion for music. Whoever drew that conclusion and perpetuated the loner profile was mistaken.

JEMS is pleased to release the second of a series of recordings made by legendary taper Mike Millard, AKA Mike the MICrophone, best known for his masters of Led Zeppelin in and around LA circa 1975-77. For further details on how these tapes came to be lost and found again, as well as JEMS’ history with Mike Millard, please refer to the notes in Vol. One http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=500680

Our second installment is from night three of Dylan’s residency at the Universal Amphitheatre in June 1978. This recording is more complete than the first night, but was again joined in progress. Millard’s notes state, “Missed first five minut[e]s of concert,” so his recording omits the show-opening “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” and “Love Her With a Feeling,” before he gets his Nakamichi 550 up and running during “Baby Stop Crying.”

Like night one, what Millard did record is, to my ears, mighty fine. Lossless Bob has two entries for this show, both of which appear to be the same recording based on the LB notations that they cut in the same song (“Forever Young”). Millard’s recording has no cuts in “Forever Young,” and while we haven’t done an A-B comparison, that detail suggests it is indeed a new and previously uncirculated source as night one was. Samples provided.

Olof’s essential and detail-rich Still On The Road website notes: “There are (sic) some confusion regarding these shows, the set lists are identical, but some sources claim that Joni Mitchell was present on this show [June 3] rather than the nigh[t] before.” I can confirm that the BobTalk transcription on Olof’s site for June 3 matches Millard’s tape, so it is safe to say Mitchell’s appearance, cited in the June 2 BobTalk, is properly attributed to the correct show.

A few additional notes:

In 1978, the Universal Amphitheatre was an open-air venue
