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.

Lossless Bootleg Bonanza: Peter Garbriel – Before the Flood – Demos 1975

01 Howling At The Moon 3:05
02 Excuse Me 3:42
03 Funny Man 4:27
04 No More Mickey (aka Richard MacPhail) 2:45
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.

disc 1

First Set:

d1t01. Warming Up/Turnaroundphrase
d1t02. Tune in 5
d1t03. Maiysha
d1t04. Unknown (Untitled original F, Untitled #19, Untitled original 750505)

Second Set:

d1t05. Right Off
d1t06. Mtume
d1t07. Latin (Lovin’ You)
d1t08. Ife

Notes:

– bass notes distorted and sound severly overloaded
– stereo recording with strong monaural characteristics
– noticeable hum which seems anti-correlated with keyboard during set 1

– d1t03: 2:05 might be either a very quick transition by the band or a splice/cut in tape; 17:37 tape flip/gap

– d1t05: 12:17 might be a small gap in music or quick transition

– d1t06: 7:01 gap in tape / unknown amount of music missing

– d1t08: fades out, unknown amount of music missing

– the two sources QC’ed for this date originated from the same digital transfer though they have different md5 and related signatures
they differ by the amount of zero padding at the start and at the set break between tracks 4 and 5, so only this source is used.
after adjusting there are then 2 locations (other than gap between sets) where for less than a frame there are minor differences. At these two locations neither recording sounds like it has a blemish.
d1t04: ~ 1:47, d1t08: ~ 5:38
