notes: This show was recorded for the German TV show ‘Rockpalast’ for WDR and it’s well worth finding a copy of it to see Stipe’s blonde hair, some great cover songs and the hilarious moment when Stipe goes out into the crowd during ‘We Walk’ and pats a big bearded guy on the head.

Notes from Mat: Awhile back somebody gave me a bunch of old REM shows. Unfortunately they mostly didn’t include any text files or other information other than show dates. Also they tend to be low bit rates. I’m not 100% positive I have the correct date on this one as all info I found online lists a bunch of songs that aren’t included in my download. However I am definitely in the camp of any REM is good REM so I’m happy to share.

Ten Years of Bootlegs #2: The Allman Brothers Band – San Francisco, CA (12/31/73)

Allman Brothers Band 12-31-73 - San Francisco

Ever since coming up with this list I’ve pondered why The Allman Brothers Band would be the only non Bob Dylan show to crack the top ten. Why is there no Jerry? No Van on this list? I don’t have a good answer. My best guess is that Jerry and the Dead both exist in abundance on the Internet and that my little site is one of but many places you can download and stream those artists. One thing you might notice in my top ten list is that most of the shows on it are either alt-cuts of a specific album or compilations of some sort. Thus far there hasn’t been a single show appear on the list. The closest we’ve come is #4 which includes two complete shows from Dylan in 2000. The thing is I haven’t posted very many compilations from Jerry or the Dead. I suspect there just isn’t a single show from them that can push them above a Dylan comp.

As for Van he doesn’t have that large a presence online. He’s kind of the opposite of the Dead where very few places exist on the Internet that are sharing his shows. Part of this is due to Van himself taking measures to stop the spread of his music being shared online. For years he used the Web Sheriff to take down anything that wasn’t officially sanctioned. He’s calmed down over the last few years but that still leaves people a little gun shy. Van also doesn’t seem to be as popular as Bob and Jerry. At least he doesn’t seem to create the sort of fans that create passion websites about him.

All of this is just me guessing. I really have no idea.

So why the Allman Brothers? Over the ten years I’ve been doing this I’ve only posted a handful of show from the Allmans. Fans are certainly not tuning into these pages for ABB bootlegs. I”m sure many of you are fans of the band, but The Midnight Cafe is not the place you are coming for their shows. Similar to Van Morrison you can’t find a ton of places for ABB bootlegs. Their officially allow tapers to record their shows but they get a little wonky in terms of letting people like me post the shows online. I suspect there is a high demand for the shows, but not as many places to find them. Thus when I posted this show people gravitated towards it. Or more likely someone posted a link to this show on some ABB forum or another.

It certainly doesn’t hurt that this is a pretty epic show from the bands peak. Oh and it does feature Jerry Garcia, Bill Kreutzman & Boz Scaggs.

Whatever the reasons the Allman Brother Band comes in at #2 in my Top Ten viewed bootlegs of all time. Here’s the stats.

Thanks to Nellie at Expecting Rain.

I was going to call this 20th Century Blues, but marianne faithful beat me to it.One of the most productive four weeks in NET history – in terms of both quality & quantity – & most of it in great sound.Bob finished the 20th century with a short, sharp tour where he looked both forward & back – a sort of parallel to elvis’s ’68 comeback special, pieced together from two sitdown & another two standing sets.Bob had a month-long party with 22 concerts – all of which are represented here.

If you don’t like this, you don’t like bob – astonishing music with lots of pleasant surprises.

PS – the jokes have not improved.

From the original uploader:
Quality ranges from SBD to just fair.
The Wednesday Morning session appears from an AM Source on a number
of other releases (Far East Reunion, Village Vanguard) but this is
the only version which blends that with various FM rebroadcasts.
So you won’t find this better quality elsewhere.

The Manchester show is the worst-sounding here – my guess is that
it was recorded by putting a microphone up to an AM radio speaker(!).

Anyway, S&G bootlegs being the rare, eclectic beasts they are, this
CD tidys up a number of disparate recordings into one coherent package.

Lossless Bootleg Bonanza: Bob Dylan – Bass Player’s Wearing a Tie, 1978

bob Dylan - 1978-12-10 Charlotte

Bob Dylan
Pink Panther Records

Download: FLAC/MP3

The final piece of Pink Panther’s five part 1978 world tour, which consisted of 114 concerts (not the 115 often quoted by writers).
This has only been bettered by the 120 concerts in 1999 & 116 in 1995.
The year would take Bob to 10 countries – USA, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, UK, Netherlands, Germany, France, Sweden & Canada.

This final North American leg seems like it is light years away from the Japanese “greatest hits” shows.
It was not a happy time for Bob (as had been the American concerts in September & October), but Bob did make some radical decisions on how he would move forward & out of his situation.

The journalists were unrelenting in their criticism, Street Legal did not sell well, Renaldo & Clara was a commercial disaster,
the single Baby Stop Crying flopped & was all but dropped from the setlist.

I have no idea what was going on in his head, but the rants about geeks, gypsy kings, & an old man on a train in Mexico with glowing eyes (God?, devil?) give some insight.

Whether the stories about crosses thrown on stage or hotel room visits from God are reliable is debatable, but he did play Slow Train at soundchecks & Do Right To Me Baby (Do Unto Others) on the final tour night in Hollywood, Florida.

However, when you listen objectively to the best examples of the circulating tapes, you get some wonderful music.
The setlist is fairly static but the night by night variation is amazing.
Despite everything, the standard of performance is very high – he does not give up.
Improvisation is the order of the day & the band & backup singers give their all.
It is far looser than September & October – to the point of being feral & unpredictable.

The music soars all the way to heaven – literally.

Sound quality is mostly excellent, but there are some lo-fi tracks of the rarely played songs
(Baby Stop Crying was only played twice before being abandoned in mid-November).

A note on sound quality – Jokerman usually does a great job with sound ratings, but not here.
imo, Vancouver & LA are under-rated, Charlotte is over-rated, & Madison is incredible (although I concede that there are cuts & dropouts on some songs – most of which do not appear here).
I have never liked (& still don’t like) Charlotte – I know everyone raves about it but all the versions I have heard are harsh, processed & clipped.
There are 11 Charlotte tracks here – the performances are great, but imo there are better examples of most of the songs.

Generally, there are two examples of each song (one each from November & December) but not always.

The title comes from bootlegger comments at 11-15 LA just before Shelter From The Storm (but I had to clean it up a bit).
