From an offmaster copy of the audience recording by Legendary Taper E.

I believe this show was torrented earlier (in an upgraded form as I remember). I decided to
seed this offmaster so as to provide a complete documentation of LTE’s recording
of the Warfield shows. If you previously downloaded the bit torrent for 11-16-79, then
perhaps you will not wish to download this one (I must hasten to add that I have not done
a comparison listening of this recording and the recently circulating version).

Recieved a copy of this from the “Unofficial Bob Dylan Free Tape Library”
quite a few years ago, and here’s what the website owner said regarding this
performance:

A very good audience recording of an outstanding performance. I’m a little
uneasy about the acuracy of the venue, though. The audience sounds receptive
and enthusiastic as one might expect from one of the four World Vision
International benifits at Civic Auditorium, Santa Monica that started a
couple of days later. Additionally, The set order doesn’t quite agree with
Bjorner’s Chronicles. However, Olof attributes No Man Righteous to the 15th
in his table so one has to question the accuracy of other entries.
Unfortunately, the tape is compromised by an abrupt clipping of the end of
In The Garden. Still well worth having, if only for the very rare (the only
other performance I’m aware of being on May 7th the following year) No Man
Righteous.

Regarding my suspicions as to the attributed venue, on 10/07/97 John D.
Baldwin wrote: “I think I have solved the mystery of the venue for the
gospel tape you provided for me through the library, dated by you 11/16/79.
It is indeed the last Warfield show, rather than one of the Santa Monica
shows. The clue is in Dylan’s rap prior to his performance of Solid Rock:
“They hold my records so long, you might hear [the song Solid Rock] a
month from now, maybe a year from now, but remember, whenever you do,
remember you heard it first right here.

“Now [illegible] San Francisco is a great town and you know there are a
lot of things wrong with it, but there are a lot of people here that we love.
And we’re gonna miss it, too!”

The beginning of the second comment is obscured by audience applause
generated by the first comment, but he clearly utters the words “San
Francisco.” Even if those words were inaudible, the remainder of his
comment indicates that this is the final date of the Warfield residency.
It would not be appropriate for Dylan to refer to “a lot of things wrong”
with a city like Santa Monica, and because he played in Santa Monica for
only four days, it seems to me unlikely that he would make a big deal
about missing the place at the end of such a short stay. (I’m assuming
that the whole tape represents a single concert, which I have no reason
to doubt, rather than performances from two or more dates edited together.)
As far as the enthusiasm of the crowd is concerned, Paul Williams in his
book “Dylan – What Happened?” clearly states that the audiences at the
Fox Warfield grew more and more enthusiastic as the residency went on
(though Williams apparently did not catch this particular show). It is
also very possible that many San Francisco-based “born-again people” found
out about the Dylan show, went on the last night to see what the fuss was
about, and liked what they heard, although these people clearly do not
represent the entire audience.”

Review:
This Japanese CD combines two excellent quality, superbly mixed soundboard recordings from the Feb.11, 1974 early and late shows, and
includes tracks performed by The Band as well. The performance, while fairly standard for 1974 in terms of the setlist, is excellent in execution. A surprisingly enjoyable set and, as with Paint The Daytime Black, a far better representation of 1974
than the official Before The Flood album.

Lineage: Trade CDRs > EAC > Audacity for various glitch fixes; almost all track markers reset > flac (level 8, align on sector boundaries) > torrent

Does not match LB-2173; I do not have that LB entry and so cannot determine whether this recording or the alternate recording discussed below is the same as the LB-2173 recording.

The largest problem with this recording is on D1T1 (Stuck Inside of Mobile), which is clipped by 8 or 10 seconds, comes in on the “up and down the block” line of Stuck Inside of Mobile.

I have a second copy of this show (D1/7T-38:59 + D2/10T-63:43). That second version also does not match LB-2173 by disc splits or times, but does have the beginning of Stuck Inside of Mobile. The sound on that second recording is inferior to this recording (though it improves on
the acoustic set at the beginning of D2). That second recording is different than this one, as it does not have the “Roger McGuinn” fingerprint on KOHD that this recording has. I have tried to patch the beginning of Stuck Inside of Mobile from that second recording into this recording. I am torrenting TWO versions of D1T1 – one clipped as received and one “patched.” Obviously, burn the show with only one of those versions of Stuck Inside, as you like.

some clipping on crowd nearby taper between songs
some bass hum/hiss in some locations

Fingerprint: At 0:44.5 of KOHD a man in left channel distinctly says “Roger McGuinn” while
two other voices nearby are making same observation not as loudly.

Well above average sound for a US late 89; does not match LB-2173.

Roger McGuinn on guitar for encores.

Interesting show — the songs tend to run together, one right into the next (which makes setting
the track markers a challenge!). This early Oh Mercy! show features back to back Everything is
Broken, an excellent What Good Am I?, and a sublime Most of the Time, maybe the best.

MASTER RECORDING: Sony MDZ-R35->CSB->Sony JE510->Tascam CD-RW700

The recording is EXCELLENT, VERY upfront and balanced A/A+

Every Van fan should have this show. This is a GREAT show. Van and Bob (and Lucinda on a few of these shows)
did a fall tour in 1998. I saw 3 of them (only taped 2). This was the final show of this mini tour. Van was in a GREAT mood,
in his enthusiastic mode (which isn’t always the case). The crowd was hooping and hollering along. The setlist is GREAT,
with a very rarely played ending twosome of Summertime in Enland along with Cypress Ave.

This was one of the first recording I made with this equipment, and there are a couple of mic pops during the recording
(just a few). Also, I inexplicably decided to fit this on 1 74 minute disc (there were no 80 minute discs then).
So…I removed Whenever God Shines His Light from the original recording and put it on another disc, so later I replaced it,
but there is a fade-out and start up between Track 4 and Track 5. Also there was a disc flip between Track 11 and 12,
so Track 12 starts abruptly, but no music is missed.

All Van fans should take a listen to this, especially with the relative mediocrity (Keep mediocrity at bay, indeed) of his shows
from the last 4-5 years, and t he newbies to Van should take a listen to this relatively neglected period of time.
Van’s voice is HUGE on this one. Hope you like it. I only have the front art I made back in the day…can’t find the rear.
I’ll put up the Dylan recording of this show later.

From the uploader:
Yes – I kid you not – Richard Gere joins Van on stage for this show in Brighton UK. I don’t know if this happened anywhere else…or what RG was doing in Brighton…maybe someone can enlighten us.

My sister, who still lives in Brighton, was at this show and told me soon after about the appearance of RG…it was her impression that having performed a song he then stayed on stage longer than he was supposed to. Just before “And the healing has begun” he seems to insist on making a speech – when he finally introduces the song the band are in so quick you have the impression they may be getting a tad annoyed. Anyway, judge for yourself.

This is a good audience recording of Van with a great band and the focus (in these comments) on RG should not detract from the talent on show – John Lee Hooker, Brian Kennedy, Georgie Fame et al.

Ken & Judy Lee Proudly Present:
The Port Chester Resurrection Project

PCRP#007NRPS-GD1970-11-8.shnf.torrent

This is a very special release from Ken and Judy Lee. It serves as a commemoration of Mark Cohen’s 2nd anniversary in heaven. Mark was a great friend, and a big part of the Dead community. And it is to him that this project is dedicated, and to whom we owe a huge debt of gratitude. If not for Mark’s love of music, and love of this band in particular, we would never have known about the Lees’ Port Chester archive. Aside from a few other
brave souls known to have taped shows at this fantastic venue, Ken and Judy’s work from the Capitol Theatre stands as the ultimate body of documentation. And if not for Mark’s insistence that these shows be “liberated”, much of what has previously circulated would never have been heard, and this show was one of his favorites.

This show is a keystone of the Grateful Dead, one of those shows that really gives you pause and makes you wonder. A show of firsts and lasts, when it was all said and done, it had laid to rest some old lexicons, and created a new set of criteria by which the band would be judged. This was truly one of the legendary Grateful Dead shows. The Dead had a way of continually redefining themselves in performance, and this show buries the sixties and propels them into the seventies (much like the benchmark show at Lewiston, Maine 9-6-80 redefined them for the Eighties).

This is the last official acoustic set of the 70’s. ( Other than, or But for one Besides an) improptu set in 1978, most of the songs performed acoustically would not see the light of day again untill the fall of 1980, when they were showcased at the 10 night run at the Warfield in San Francisco, and 8 nights at NY’s Radio City Music Hall. The final “Operator”, and “Wake Up Little Suzie”, Mystery Train > My Babe (only time played), New Orleans > Searchin’, Main Ten (last time played), all standout in this performance, and then like a dream, are gone. Around and Around (first time played), and a long stretch before you hear “Baby Blue” again. This release also includes the complete New Riders set, known to circulate only as a fragment.

This is a patched fix for the most recent upgrade of this show,
put into circulation by The Port Chester Resurrection Project
(http://db.etree.org/shninfo_detail.php?shnid=26975).

Re-editing by – Noah Weiner (Dec 2004 – March, 2005)

AudMC cuts patched via crossfade with alt version:
http://db.etree.org/shninfo_detail.php?shnid=23474

-I Know You Rider (patch covers cut 03:52 – 04:45)
-It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue (patch covers cut 03:03 – 03:07)
-Truckin’ (patch covers cut 05:56 – 05:58)
-Dancin’ in the Streets (patch covers cut 06:17 – 06:37)

All track ID’s that needed adjustment got it.

MD5’s are separated out by band. Please note such that the files
named as gd1970-11-08d3 are actually Disc 4 of this entire set.

Technical Notes (from shnid=26975):
The original audience master cassettes (4 Ampex C361-90) were recorded
on a Sony TC124 with unknown dynamic mics, spread approx. 25-30 ft.
across the balcony, by Ken & Judy Lee,. The cassette tape was baked
and re-shelled, then transfered via Tascam 122 MK-III > Lucid ADA1000 >
Tascam DA30-II (DAT) > Tascam CDRW 700 (CDR) by John Jay Hance. Editing
by Peter G. via Soundforge. No noise reduction was applied. Audio
extraction and further editing via Peak 4.0, compressed to .shn with xACT
1.3, and seeded by BoldCaptain via Azureus 2.1. Tape flutter in Baby Blue,
and in Truckin’. Tape flip in Dancin’ In The Streets was was seemlessly
pieced together.

Remastering of shnid 28609 – disc 3
Using Adobe Audition,
-I repitched tracks 6-12 to match the rest of the show,
-I severely attenuated (by about 35 dB) the horrible booming resonance
centered at about 215 Hz, most objectionable during Good Lovin’.
-I moved the track marker for the beginning of NFA to match more closely
the change of source tape.

Only tracks 5-12 are different from 28609

Combination notes:
rbbert released shnid=94500 containing only the disc 3 tracks.
I dropped these tracks into shnid=28609 to replace the original tracks.

Tracking notes not having anything to do with the disc 3 upgrade:
This source came to me with duplicate files for disc 3. They were numbered
differently, so I checked st5 text and visually verified all trakcs were
in fact exact duplicates. I then deleted the additional files. This
situation was at some point prior corrected in the database.

Flac encoding notes:
All processing with Trader’s Little Helper
Shn – st5 generated
Shn > Flac ( level 8 )
Flac – st5 generated and matched to Shn st5

Source 3:
New Riders set only
This is a flac encoded & tagged version of shnid: 28642

Note:
This is the same original source as The Port Chester Resurrection Project:
(shnid=26975). However, track IDs that needed adjustment got it. These files
are also listed as part of the Grateful Dead show of the same date
(shnid=28609) and circulate with that as well. Added to etree by Noah Weiner

notes:
Although the Lee/Hance/PCRP source of this is certainly
sonically better, I’ve always loved the Legendary Marty’s
recording as well. I think this copy of Jerry Moore’s is
the best and most unmolested I’ve heard it. Enjoy.
