Download: FLAC/MP3

Thanks as always to Nellie at Expecting Rain for this compilation. As per usual she has included an enormous amount of information in the text files which I have not included here (but do remain in the download) in order to save space.

Tour ’74 is a much misunderstood part of Dylan’s live performance canon.
The early concerts are quite different to the later ones which formed Before The Flood.

There have been various great compilations of Tour ’74 in the past,
most notably the silver boot Phantoms Of My Youth (Capricorn) and
Bob Meyer’s amazing Nineteen74 from 1981, a “best of” from his exhaustive, and at the time definitive, “1974 Project”.

However, since then, many pristine complete soundboards (& bits of soundboards) have emerged,
along with great audience tapes from Chicago and Hollywood. This new compilation reflects this.

One of the great surprises is the performance & sound quality of The Band songs, which are also included here.

Sound quality here is generally very good to excellent, but some tracks only exist in fair to poor sound.
Unfortunately, the first three tracks from Chicago are in poor sound –
if you don’t like these completist tracks, use the “skip” button.

Hope you enjoy it. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Lies, damn lies & statistics:

All the songs performed by Dylan & The Band on Tour’74.

THE JF BACKSTORY

JEMS loves a vintage taper series and we’re pleased to offer another one, this time from the archive of our friend JF, who taped in and around Southern California in the ’70s and Boston in the ’80s. He frequented smaller venues, like the Troubadour and the Roxy, leaving arenas to others and leaning more towards the folksier, jazzier and eclectic sides of rock.

Most of his ’70s tapes were made on what I would describe as the kind of large, rectangular, portable, C-cel powered cassette recorder that my family and surely many others had in the ’70s, either a Panasonic or a Sony. While I used ours to record myself, my friends and my sister around the house, the teenage JF figured: Why not try taking it into concerts?

I only learned what recorder JF used after I had heard some of his tapes and I have to say I was mildly shocked. Given the gear, his tapes are remarkably clear for the era. And make no mistake, this was an early era for audience recording, part of the first wave spurred on by of the vinyl bootleg revolution.

For further details and backstory on JF, his tapes and the extraordinary lost Van performances from 1975 that started the series, please refer to the notes in Vol. Three:

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=524853

JONI IN ANAHEIM

The JF Archive series resumes with what we believe to be a previously uncirculated Joni Mitchell performance on her well regarded 1974 tour backed by Tom Scott and the L.A. Express. The tour was notable as her first to explore more of a jazz direction compared to her folk-rock beginnings.

You can find the poster for the show, the ticket, photos and a nice contemporary review here:
http://jonimitchell.com/chronology/detail.cfm?id=1365

Itís a lively set featuring a very talkative Joni. The sound quality isn’t up to the level of the best audience tapes of the tour (among them JEMS’ Seattle 3/13/74 master found here http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=318981), but in all, this a lovely performance and another one of those ìyou are thereî recordings, despite the lo-fi gear. Samples provided.

JF did an excellent job capturing the complete performance with no noticeable cuts in the music, Joni’s between song dialogue and stories come through loud and clear.

Though originally recorded on cassette, JF’s Joni recording was transferred from reel-to-reel. That’s because JF, due to tight budgets at the time (he was barely out of high school), routinely transferred his master tapes to reels in order to save tape/money. Because he recorded his masters in mono, he would dub the finished recording onto a single track of a reel, allowing him to fit four or more shows on one 7″ tape and reuse the cassette for the next show. That wasn’t true in all instances, but it is for most. And yes, in hindsight, he is still kicking himself about it. And yet, based on the tapes we’ve transferred so far, JF did a fine job dubbing off his masters, and the Joni reel doesn’t sound any worse for wear despite the one-generation loss.

Once again, we must express our gratitude to JF, who reached out on DIME (you could be next!) and offered us his archive, which had been sitting in boxes, 6000 miles away from where he lives today, for 20+ years. Like so many early tapers, he had great stories to tell and the memories flooded back as we sorted through tapes. We are pleased to be able to bring his work to all of you. Please let him know through your comments that you are, too.

Lastly, as always, special thanks to mjk5510, who continues his critical duty as JEMS’ post-production and quality-control supervisor. His contributions are essential in getting the music to you.

Download: FLAC/MP3

The original uploader simply copied and pasted the original notes for each of these three shows, only making amendments to note which songs were omitted. Track listings for the FLAC files were likewise kept from those original shows. For the MP3s I combined them into one collection. I made each show a different disk number and changed the track numbers to keep them in order. I have no idea if each show will actually fit on one disk (I’m guessing not) so if you burn to disk you’ll want to play with it first to see how they fit. I apologize if that is annoying, but I wanted it to flow as best as possible and this was the only way I could figure it. – Mat

The non DP 7 tracks from these three outstanding shows have been
pulled from circulating soundboards. Now with DP 7 in hand, you
can almost re-create all three shows for your listening pleasure.

Candelario Matrix MSR D CD except
first 15:22 of Seastones (on Disc #2): AUD
end of Sunshine Daydream and encore: AUD

This is the Candelario matrix SBD reel recording. From 2:10 to 3:00
of Scarlet Begonias the mix gets strange while Kid adjusts his levels.
We have left this passage intact (there is another version in
circulation where it is patched with AUD). We have patched in from
an AUD master the first 15:22 of Seastones, the tail end of Sunshine
Daydream, and US Blues, all missing on the circulating MSR D.
Naturally this set supplements and does not supplant the portions of
this show released as parts of Dick’s Picks #7, but until GDM releases
the show complete, this will do the trick nicely.

Dave Greenberg did the final mastering of these discs. We don’t know
who mastered the patch of SSDD and US Blues; we extracted this portion
from a CD of the MSR D containing Eyes through the end of the show,
with this patch already in place, and nicely done — our compliments
to whoever mastered it. HB also provided important assistance.
This project was instigated and these notes written by Jim Powell.

From the original uploader:

Joni Mitchell Mega-rare restored vinyl set “Spring Songs” 1974-03-24 Cameron Stadium, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina (mp3 sample) great performance!

Plea and beg time: If you have the master tape of this show, or one not from this record album, please seed it!

For this torrent, I have decided to take quite a different tack: I have tweaked and fiddled with this music for many hours to bring this amazing performance somewhat to life. There’s night and day difference between what you will hear in this torrent and on the original vinyl. The fact that I can finally hear all the instruments and the thing’s back in tune and in proper tempo on a show of this quality is all I need. I absolutely love it.

You may not think that’s good enough. You may think it not worth your time, or that it “still sucks”, or why am I posting this when there’s so much better sounding material out there.

I have news for you… Joni is stunning, mind melting, riding the clouds on this one. She is so good that she makes it look easy.

It may not be for you, nor your sister, nor your girlfriend who you’ve been trying to do “what with??!!” if you can’t look past the imperfections:

Don’t download it!

The setlist of this show is another matter entirely. The album cover, the Hot Wacks discography, and the sides of the album are all in disagreement. The tracks on each side seem to be in sequence, but I am not sure if the sides themselves are in proper order. This is what I came up with, both for track listings and for sequence:

You Turn Me On, I’m A Radio
Free Man In Paris
Same Situation
Just Like This Train
Rainy Night House (awesome, awesome!)
Woodstock
Big Yellow Taxi
Peoples Parties
All I Want
A Case Of You
For The Roses
Cold Blue Steel And Sweet Fire

Please provide corrections!

Some technical notes: Very little noise reduction or pop and click removal was applied to this recording, as it was difficult to seperate the noise from the music. The swishing you hear in some tracks is sound cancellation caused by the stereo master tape being pressed in combined (L + R) mono. EQ was performed and undone over and over again to get the recording as clear as possible. Each side was individually pitch-corrected to CD masters of the official releases.

This recording BEGS for a tape copy that’s in stereo!

Enjoy!

From the original uploader

There is very little to be found online about this show other than artwork and a setlist that is wrong on db.etree.org. I’ve corrected the setlist below.

The quality is not great but its listenable. This is a show that will be beneficial to completists and those that want to hear one of the very rare recordings of You Don’t Pull No Punches, but you Don’t Push the River from the 70’s. VERY HARD TO FIND!!!

hope you enjoy! 🙂
