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 hold 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.

Sounds like mixing desk as no close up talking but could be audience.

I seem to remember a partial BBC Broadcast of this with only one Morrison track,
could be wrong.

The Rare 90s group is proud to announce the 9th volume in the Rare 90s
series: The Complete North Sea Jazz Festival – 16 JUL1995 – JVC Statenhal,
The Hague, Netherlands.

The North Sea Jazz Festival 1995 is a great FM recording usually regarded as
one of the top 10 all time Van Morrison boots, but until now the versions in
circulation have left out the first five songs played that evening because
they were never broadcast.

Recently, a master cassette (audience source) of the complete North Sea Jazz
festival 1995 was found; the intro and the first five tracks from this tape
have been painstakingly reworked to bring them up to the clarity of the FM
tracks that widely circulate, specifically: volume balancing, equalization
and normalization.

So, enjoy this special show in it’s entirety for the first time! Our thanks
to all involved, from the original unknown tapers to all those who helped
more recently with this latest Rare90s release.

firstly upped by survivor69 on Dimeadozen.org, 12-July-2016 (dimeupload #1577)
note that due to disk space limitations, I will not be able to keep seeding this torrent for a long time – I will abandon the seed in a few days, maybe remove from HD these wav/flac files, and keep only my own CDR. Too many things to upload. In case of seeders going missing, enlist yourself as a leecher and some seeder will come back, and you are anyhow welcome to try and ask for additional torrenting…
checksum file included – if uploaded on other trackers or reseed (and you are welcome to do both), please include original infofile and also do not change FOLDER name. Also, if not satisfied with my offering, you are welcome to remaster/retrack/whatever and repost, but please always clearly state where/who did you have this material from and keep original infofile. IF YOU ARE THEN OFFERING THIS SET ON YOUR BLOG AS mp3’s, PLEASE SPECIFY WHERE TO ALSO GET THE ORIGINAL LOSSLESS FILES

a Live and Direct FM radio broadcast by “Radio2Live”, Radio2 RAI [second channel of italian national radio] from Piazza Napoleone, Lucca (Italy), on saturday 9 July 2016, 21:00 hours [CET]

this was a co-headlined show with Tom Jones, who played later, thus the early start missed from broadcast the first songs of the set (apparently .Moondance .The Way Young Lovers Do .Magic Time .Someone Like You .By His Grace .Have I Told You Lately .Whenever God Shines His Light).
At the moment, we don’t know if these tracks were recorded for a possible future rebroadcast…
WARNING: in italian radio customes the DJ speaks a lot in-between songs. And I mean a lot.. His/Her purpose is to introduce songs with bits of bio and translate what the artists say, or to describe to radio listeners what’s happening on stage. It may gets VERY annoying, and trust me it does, thus we might consider this recording ONLY FOR COMPLETISTS. But the songs, the actual music, are (usually) not spoken over in the middle of them. It has to be noted that italian djs are on the whole adviced to talk that much by the same record companies to prevent bootlegging.
there are three smalls signal droputs along the set
