From the original uploader
This is a great recording! Excellent stereo sound…just a little wow and flutter (speed ‘wobble’) creeps in here and there (at it’s worst on the last couple of tracks on CD 2), and Sister Ray gets cut off. Overall it’s a magnificient recording for it’s time, or for any time for that matter – as good as many mixing desk or FM recording, and a great ‘feel’ to it. Forget the dry sound of some mixing desk and certain well known tapers uploads … this sounds like being there!

The date is slightly puzzling…according to doc it was 30th October, but other records suggest Lou played Philadelphia on that date. We wanted to get this online, and perhaps someone can help on the date? As you will hear it’s a great recording, and I’ve had upping this on my ‘to do’ list for a while, so here you are.

On the technical side, no audio processing was done : ODoc55 pointed out no PC was used for the transfer to disc. To get this onto Dime, using a PC was kind of essential, but I did no audio processing : aside from noting how precious some Lou fans can be about that, there was no need. The only work done was sorting out the track splits, they needed some tidying up, and that was done very carefully.

A 24-bit/96-KHz flac24 version of this recording is also available.

Dan Lampinski recorded over 100 concerts in the Providence/Boston area, mostly between 1974 and 1978. His earliest recordings were made with an internal microphone deck, and though they are somewhat lo-fi compared to his later work, some very great moments in rock history were captured for posterity. In late 1974 he bought a Sony TC-152SD tape recorder, a Sony ECM-99 stereo microphone, and began using Maxell cassettes. He was also fortunate enough to have a friend who provided excellent taping seats for many shows, resulting in high quality recordings. In 1977, he switched over to a Nakamichi 550 tape recorder, two Nakamichi CM-300 microphones, and continued using Maxell cassettes.

He recorded many of the major 70’s bands: Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull, ELP, Kiss, Black Sabbath, The Who, Al Stewart, Alice Cooper, Jeff Beck, Bruce Springsteen, Supertramp, Jean-Luc Ponty, Moody Blues, Neil Young, The Faces, Rush, Rick Wakeman, Kansas, as well as several “under the radar” acts.

Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ’ing has been done to any of the transfers. Feel free to EQ, matrix, patch, etc and re-post if you like, just give Dan credit for the original recording.

Dan was very meticulous about taking good care of his tapes and is very pleased that these recordings will now circulate among the trading community. Please honour his kindness and generosity by sharing these recordings freely.

The transfers are available as 16bit/44.1KHz flac files suitable for CD burning, and also as 24bit/96KHz flac files for those who prefer the higher resolution.

Always remember – the more generous you are with your music, the more it comes back to you.

Heroin sounds very good here, and Oh Jim has an extended drum solo. Rock ‘n’ Roll is very funky too.

The CD-R I received this on had the sound considerably balanced to the right on CD 1, and significantly to the
left on CD 2, so some corrective work was carried out.

The Midnight Cafe Mix #2 – It’s All Right

Various Artists
The Midnight Cafe Mix #2 – It’s All Right

Download MP3@320

My goal was to do a mix every month and here it is the middle of March and I’m just getting my second one out.  Truth is I had this one ready at the end of February but kept forgetting to post it.  Once again this is a pretty random mix.  These aren’t the greatest bootleg songs of all time.  They aren’t the best performances by these artists nor even the best versions of these songs.  Its just a bunch of songs that I like, put together for fun.

The transitions should be a little better this time than last, though I’m still learning how to edit the MP3s.

1. “Where the Streets Have No Name” – U2
1987.05.15 – Rutherford, NJ

U2 at the height of their powers.  I always loved this song as the opener for The Joshua Tree and it works really well opening this mix.

2. “Good Lovin'” – The Grateful Dead
1978.04.12 – Durham, NC

Not my favorite period for the Dead, nor my favorite cover song, but they do a really nice rockin’ version here.

3. “One More Cup of Coffee” – Bob Dylan
1993.11.16 – New York, NY

From the infamous Supperclub shows.  The all acoustic version knocks some of the menace out of this song, but the excellent playing more than makes up for it.

4.  “Wings for Wheels” – Bruce Springsteen
1975.02.05 – Bryn Mawr PA

An early rendition of “Thunder Road.”  Its fun to catch the various differences between this and its “official” version.

5. “Fred Jones Part 2” – Ben Folds
2005.12.29 – XM Radio

Slowing things down a bit comes this ballad from Ben Folds.

6. “Mission in the Rain” – Jerry Garcia Band
1989.01.28 – San Francisco, CA

I’m usually not a fan of this song, but Jerry’s got a nice solo in it which is followed by some interesting stuff by Melvin Seals.  It starts off really slow and soft but it cooks up eventually.

7. “Breakdown” – Tom Petty
1999.04.23 – Hamburg, Germany

Tom Petty gets things rocking again.  I really like the little vocal rave up at the end.

8. “Sweet Jane” – Lou Reed
1974.05.14 – Stockholm, Sweden

Holy moly is Lou on fire here.  The whole band just smokes.

9. “Heroes” David Bowie
2003.11.22 – Dublin, Ireland

The first bit of this is clipped but its well worth the slight error there to hear the rest of it.

10. “Vanlose Stairway” – Van Morrison
1983.07.03

It doesn’t get any smoother than to have Van take us away on the Vanlose Stairway.
