10,000 Maniacs’ “The Wishing Chair” L.P. will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year
(original release date – September 23, 1985). Since it seems apparent that the Maniacs
are not being given the remaster / bonus tracks / box set treatment that they so richly
deserve, I’ve decided to upload all of my 70+ live and rare 10,000 Maniacs recordings
during the coming weeks. Although many of these recordings will be re-seeds of previous
Dime torrents, a substantial number have never appeared on the Dime (and many others
haven’t been shared since the Dime’s previous incarnation as “easytree.org” circa 2005).


*2015 re-seed*

I looked on a site to see if this gig was available as a bootleg. There is a copy going a
round, but it doesn’t list track 16, the second encore, which takes this gig just over
60 mins and may account for why it’s possibly been left off other tape trades?

I’d waited a long time to see the band in the UK. Having heard them on John Peel, I was
lucky enough to get a US import copy of the I Ching album from the Rough Trade shop soon
after it came out. RC and I were seeing Dead Can Dance a lot round about this time and we
both went along to Dingwalls. I didn’t take my recorder. I can’t remember why not,
although I was familiar with Dingwalls and it may have been something to do with being
worried about the bouncers or just noisy audiences.

My over-riding memory of this gig was Natalie wildly swinging and dancing around the cast
iron columns on stage that held the roof up, with her long hair flowing. The stage was
crammed – they were a big band and it was a small venue. Very noisy and sweaty. Anyway,
after the gig I told RC that I wished I’d taped it. He said he wasn’t that impressed and
a couple of weeks later sent me his master, keeping a copy for himself. If you know RC,
this will sound really odd as he became a big Maniacs and Natalie Merchant fan. I guess
he just didn’t feel it straight away. I’ve got plenty of ticket stubs from Dingwalls, but
nothing to tell me which one relates to this gig, so no images I’m sorry to say.

I went to the Marquee the next night and taped it – although it was a disaster. I arrived
late, left early and in between picked up loads of chatter on the mike.

Enjoy – and thanks to RC for the master.

Bob Dylan – I’d Rather Be Lucky Than Rich – 1984 European Tour

bob Dylan 1984 European Tour

Download: FLAC/MP3

You have got to give Bob an A+ for getting hold of quality musicians.
Here we get John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers (1969 version) alumini Mick Taylor & Colin Allen,
(with Mick Taylor having added to his CV being an ex-member of The Rolling Stones in the interim);
Faces legendary keyboard player Ian “MacHooligan” MacLagan;
Latin fusion guitarist Carlos Santana; & a relatively obscure American bass player named Greg Sutton.

So what happens when you put Bob together with blues purists & latin fusion – the shambolic 84 European Tour of course.

There was also a half-hearted attempt to integrate Joan Baez into the mess, but after a couple of failed attempts, she packed up & went home.

However, there is plenty of good music to keep you interested here & it is much better than the official Real Live album
mainly culled from the final two concerts in Wembley, London & Slane Castle, Ireland.

There are two very good sounding tapes from the circulating rehearsals in LA & Verona.

The concerts are more variable in performance & sound quality – when Mick Taylor is great he is really great,
but when he is off – oh well. Ian MacLagen’s keyboards are usually low in the sound mix, but not always –
there is some great electric piano to be heard here when the sound engineer turns him up.
& then there is Carlos Santana – if you think Mick Taylor is erratic, wait until you hear Carlos.

The setlists have a lot of surprises – while the shows have a large number of core songs,
this does not stop Bob from performing a lot of songs only occasionally.

There is also a lot of improvisation here – core songs get different treatments night after night – so the music is never boring.

Best concerts – Brussels, Goteborg, Offenbach & Nantes.

This tour is far better than many give it credit for – just stay away from the London & Slane “superstar” concerts.

From the original uploader:

This is the 4th Show of Bob Dylan’s 1984 tour with former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick
Taylor. It is interesting to hear how the songs are evolving now from these first 4 shows.
We get a real treat on this one with “To Ramona” and with Willie Nelson’s “Why Do I
Have to Choose.”
Right now is the 20th Anniversary of those shows and I thought it would be cool to release each show
to STG on the date of the actual show plus 20 years. So, here is the third show and we’ll
see if I can keep up with the rest of the tour. Enjoy.

Santana report: Screwed up the end of “Blowing in the Wind” starting at about 3:32.
This guy is bad.
BTW, These shows really highlight how BAD Santana was, playing in the wrong key, at
the wrong time and playing a part which did NOT fit into the song. What was Bob
thinking with this guy? No artwork, enjoy!

From the original uploader.

According to the liner notes on Angel Of Rain (included in the torrent) : ìThis tape was only recently discovered amongst a pile of long lost
mater-tapes and it sounds fantastic. All recorded in superb stereo soundboard quality and digitally fine tuned
and remastered by The Snake, this album is now a truly legendary document of a tour rehearsal where this setlist
looked much more interesting than the actual touring playlist! Now thatís what I call a keeper for the burning
temples in flames!î It is a very good to excellent but slightly hissy stereo soundboard recording which is a joy
to listen to.

CD-R from source > dBpowerAMP set to co0mpression level 6 > flac
From my harddiscs a rare recording in good quality
Thanks to the original uploader.

Source 2: LB-9828

Shortly before the full tape of this rehearsal emerged, this tape circulated.

Length 63 minutes (PA studio recording). I think this tape is slightly better quality than my full tape (approximately 20 minutes longer).
It’s unclear why this incomplete tape emerged, although as the instrumentals are missing one could guess that someone was ‘cleaning up’ the session a bit. However as some songs are totally missing (Thin Man, Girl From the North Country, Almost done, Highway 61 revisited) and the three false starts are still included that seems like a poor guess. Anyway this is the rehearsal as it first appeared.

Also from 1967, and of far more interest, is 1984’s professionally recorded Thames Television demo tape.
During his first-year of study at Twickenham Technical College, Dave Dilloway had made friends with a number of technicians, or trainee technicians, at the Teddington-based ITV Company, which served the London area.
The station had recently invested in new recording equipment, and rather than hire professional musicians at the usual union rate, in a set up similar to the first Queen sessions at the De Lane Lea studios, 1984 were let loose in the studio to record at their leisure.
Dave Dilloway’s carefully preserved tape still plays perfectly, and includes the following songs: “Hold On I’m Coming”, “Knock On Wood”, “NSU”, “How Can It Be”, two early run-throughs of the original May/Staffell composition “Step On Me” (which eventually became the B-side to Smile’s “Earth”), “Purple Haze”, “Our Love Is Drifting'”, and medleys of “Remember”/”Sweet Wine” and “Get Out My Life Woman”/”Satisfaction”.
The session ended with a run-through of “My Girl”.

“What an extraordinary amalgam!” declares Tim Staffell today.
“There’s Tamla, Cream, Hendrix, Lee DorseyÖ ‘Our Love Is Driftin’ ‘, we’d have heard by Paul Butterfield.
I’d forgotten there was such a large soul component in 1984!”

Dave Dilloway has the technical details: “This tape is the most recent, best and most representative of 1984 that I’m aware of.
It is mono, but since it was made on good quality TV studio equipment and was carried out along the lines of a proper studio recording, with separately mixed microphones for each source, it is remarkably good quality for its age.
The material, except for ‘Step On Me’, is all cover versions, but as it dates from the late 1984 era, Brian’s playing is more prominent and effective, with his own style starting to show through.
All the performances are competent – particularly Tim’s vocals and Brian’s guitar; although the mix is a little heavy on John’s rhythm guitar for some reason, probably the ‘ear’ of the recording engineer at the time.
All tracks were laid down in one take, i.e., no overdubbing at all, so the sound is predominantly simple, as per our live versions.”
