To seamlessly join the two discs, simply remove D1T12 and D2T01.

Much better recording than the night before – sound engineer had the room dialed in much more effectively than the night before. This recording is dedicated to the meathead and bimbo crew who planted themselves right in front of me and then proceeded to <1> blather obnoxiously through half of the performance (especially during quiet songs) despite multiple audience members’ polite reqests to pipe down or at least move to the back / sides of the venue, and <2> throw nearly – but not quite – empty beer cups at each other, splashing those around them with backwash and beer. Classy act, indeed. High five, high five!! But I won’t let a handful of meatheads and bimbos ruin it for everyone by hoarding the recording (the only one of the night of which I’m aware), so…here it is: Enjoy!

Subject: AWESOME!!!
I was at the Apr 16th show in Milwaukee and ever since have been looking here to find decent quality recordings. This recording from the Chicago show is SUPERB. I never get sick of listening to these concerts. I’ve been to two of their shows now and when I DL these and listen, I imagine I’m at that show. It’s great how they also have a different set list for each show. Ihe Infanta is AWESOME when done live!

Great recording, man! My only regret is what you mentioned — the rude, meathead idiots who kept talking throughout the whole show! Why the hell where they even there…they obviously had no interest in seeing the Decemberists perform. Man, if I would have been at THAT show and there were idiots talking like that, I would have kicked their asses. That is SO DAMN RUDE. I hope you meatheads are reading this. SHOW SOME RESPECT. If you don’t like the band, LEAVE and allow those that do to enjoy the show to the full extent.

Thank you!! Looking forward to more superb recordings from this Decemberists tour!

Great setlist, and a great sounding recording! Probably one of the better, if not best, one out there!

Recorded by Roy Martin using a set of Core Sound Stealthy Cartioid mics
about 25′ in front of the amps.

Captured as a 44.1kHz/16-bit WAV using a Zoom H2.

Transferred to my hard drive using a card reader.

Cool Edit Pro for fades. No other manipulation to the sound files were performed.

CD Wave Editor used to split the large WAVs.

SBEs corrected using Trader’s Little Helper (“-fixed” removed from the filenames).

Encoded to FLAC (Level 7) using Trader’s Little Helper.

I’m so sorry for the loudmouth woman you hear, especially between songs. She was so annoying
but, when it’s general admission, you often can’t get away from these morons. She eventually
wiggled her fat ass away from me, to give herself the opportunity to annoy other members of the
audience. Other than her fat mouth, it was a very enjoyable, respectful audience.

Much clearer sound, less hiss, very enjoyable disk. The interview makes for very good listening, too. Thumbs up to this one and some killer period photos to boot., Info from, Tracks:, Introduction, Farewell, Hard Rain, Bob Dylan’s Dream, Boots Of Spanish Leather, John Brown, Who Killed Davey Moore?, Blowin’ In The Wind Review:, The 1963 Terkel performance and interview is a must have for any serious collector. Bob has come into his own as a performer even at this early date. The songs are well done, and Bob’s wit shines through on the interview. This CD is the one to own. Yellow Dog has removed most of the tape hiss of what was already a very nice sounding line recording, and it now sounds better than ever. The colorized cover is gorgeous. The original black and white BBC photos are from the set of of the 1962 UK TV play Madhouse On Castle Street. The package photos and aesthetics alone would make this one worth the price., source:, WFMT radio, Chicago, IL May 01, 1963, Manufacturer / Catalog No., Yellow Dog / YD 057, On his website, Studs Terkel gives a date of May 1, 1963 for his interview with Dylan., (; bittorrent download 11/08; very close to mono; nothing above 16k but does not have lego parapets; in comparison this is more muffled and harsher than LB-1071 and LB-5970 but less muffled than bootleg “Before the Flood and after the fire”; (did not listen to all of this)
