Lossless Bootleg Bonanza: Bob Dylan – Best of the Rolling Thunder Review

bob dylan - best of the rolling thunder review

Bob Dylan and The Rolling Thunder Revue
Best Of The Rolling Thunder Revue

Download: FLAC/MP3

From the original uploader:

This is a bootleg created by myself documenting the whole 1975-1976 tour, with almost every (if not every) track performed by Bob Dylan in Soundboard Quality (it sounds better than a lot of official releases) and the best performances by the other Thunder Revue artists. The research done with this is INCREDIBLE. I’ve looked up for all the bootlegs of this years, i’ve listened them, and i’ve selected the best cuts (comparing every song from one performance to the others)
The tracks have been edited (fade in-fade out, normalized volume, introductions of the songs…) in order to make it a more fluid experience, and it sounds just as an official record. The bootleg has some covers too (one for each of the 7 CDs) created by myself too.
This is the best album i’ve listened about The Thunder Revue tour, and it represents the best tour of Bob Dylan incredibly well.

The CD 1, 2, 3 and 4 contain almost every track played by Bob Dylan during 1975 and 1976 in an astonishing soundboard quality.
The CD 5 contain the best songs played by the other artists touring with Dylan on these years, on soundboard quality too.
The CD 6 and 7 contain some songs and rehearsals by Dylan during these years but It’s been separated from the four first CDs because of their worse quality in comparision to the other music on the compilation. Anyways, the quality of the performance of each song is worth the noise or bad recording it has, they’re extremely worth it too.

Geetarz Comments:

This is probably one of, if not the, most oft-booted Clapton shows ever, and it’s dizzying trying to keep track of all the different versions, remasters, etc. Rather than tell you which version I think you should listen to, I prefer just to put ’em up and let YOU decide.

There are debates as to the lineage of this recording – some sources list it as a soundboard, others as an impeccable audience recording. I tend to believe it is the latter, but even if I am wrong, does it really matter? If I feed you something you think is chicken, as long as it tastes like chicken, you’re full and who cares? Just enjoy the meal.

For me personally this is the 2nd official ROIO I came across of this performance, and the Slowhand Masterfile, although a bit dated now, has always stood the test of time in my opinion as a very worthy collection.

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.

03 Funny Man 4:27

05 Get the Guns (listen carefully for the root of “Down the Dolce Vita”) 2:55
06 Here Comes the Flood 3:39
07 God Knows 4:59

These are evidently very early demos recorded for “car” (1976, Atco – Atco being Atlantic, a Warner subsidiary label). They are extremely raw; they may have been done in Gabriel’s home studio. Most are acoustic piano with a few accompanying support tracks and Peter singing.

The songs come from a white tape box marked: 7 1/2ips 1/4 trk stereo Gabriel/Hall Fuse Music

The lead sheets had the composer’s names given as “Peter Gabriel and Tony Hall” and were marked with a stamp from Fuse Music, England; they were merely lead melody transcriptions for copyright purposes, not hand-written by Gabriel or anything.

At that time, the best research i could come up with was that Fuse was somehow connected to Warner Bros (maybe like Sire was, but English; a sub-distribution deal?)… I later heard that the Fuse Music building burned down and took a whole lot of master tapes with it, and that this reel is quite probably the only surviving record of these demos.

This brown-oxide tape was discovered rotting in a water-soaked box shoved into a cleaning closet, along with the lead sheets, in a cavernous and seldom-used warehouse. It was lost/forgotten/abandoned. The tape had some warbley spots from the neglect and also quite a lot of tape hiss and lost tone.

I processed the material for several weeks before I was satisfied as to the quality, although “Get the Guns” was problemmatic to begin with; the Master appears to have been recorded badly or with misaligned heads. On the whole there is a tiny bit of tape hiss but no more than you’d expect from such a “live” environment. There is unfortunately one small glitch from a later cassette-to-cd transfer in “Excuse Me” (“Looking for Lost Angeleeeeee”) so don’t think it’s your file or player 🙂

Enjoy this very raw and simple glimpse into the creative process of Peter Gabriel.
