LDB Special Series #360 (RLR collection)

Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the
musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I’d like to propose you. Most of these come from my
cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won’t be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my
reward for all the work involved in this project.

DO NOT share this music on mp3, just convert it for your own use. Sharing mp3’s is the right way to make me stop sharing
music here.

I think I have something really special to share with all Dimers, but first a bit of background. RLR has been a very active
trader back in the early 80´s with very wide musical tastes: he could go from Kiss to Joni Mitchell; from Genesis to Deep
Purple, Queen, Simple Minds, The Who, Springsteen and many more. In the past I could access his enormous collection to get
many U2 tapes some of which I have been sharing with you folks.

RLR had all sorts of tapes in his collection, traded not long after the show happened so most of them are low generation, in
particular tons of shows recorded in Italy which to me are some of the most interesting. Some of them, I had never seen
circulating in the trading circuit. Unfortunately he did not care about generation so this info, except for the shows he
has as masters, is not available.

RLR has kindly given me access once again to his collection. It was like a “kid in a toy shop” situation: it was hard to
select tapes and at the end I came home with some 250 tapes to listen and eventually to transfer in the digital domain. Some
of them will be shared here, possibly the most interesting ones.

I am ok with blogs and sites to re-post my seeds – provided they are in lossless form – however I ask you to keep intact the
infos of the concert including that this is part of LDB series.

And I am referring to (and not only):

Last but not the least, a very important message: I will not be uploading anymore @ Dimeadozen. TTD will be my new home
from now. If you want to download my shows please subscribe here and not re-upload @ Dime. Stay tuned because I have more and
more shows coming up!

Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano, tambourine, acoustic guitar)
Brian May (electric guitar, backing vocals, acoustic guitar, piano)
Roger Taylor (drums, backing vocals),
John Deacon (bass guitar, electric guitar)
Morgan Fisher (keyboards, piano)

Another one from the Queen vaults, this time from the 1980. This sounds good although the sound is not as crisp as I would
have liked. This comes from a 2nd generation copy from RLR collection. RLR had a special connection to Germany, so he was
trading with quite a few german traders back then. Good one with some interesting Flash Gordon tracks.

Hope you will enjoy it!

It is these recordings we would like to dedicate to Dan Lampinski and his “Team” for all they shared with us.

And with that in mind i implore those that still have such “treasures” tucked away,
to please consider sharing them the way these generous people have.
None of us are getting any younger and what good will any of your recordings be when your dead.

So Ladies & Gentleman, Boys & Girls, Brothers & Sisters
For your entertainment & “earjoyment”

Sound quality starts out a little rough, but picks up (a little) during My Wife. It’s still far from perfect though! There is a cut during Magic Bus before continuing on to the next track (presumably a tape flip). The latter half of the show is of marginally better sound quality.

During this gig, Roger and Pete get a little irate with the unruly crowd. This can all be heard during the Banter track prior to My Generation. There’s lots of other stage banter throughout the gig too.

Relay also contains a small cut.

Release Notes:
Pink Floyd played on the last night of this three day festival (10/9-10/11) and were second on the bill to The Nice. The Festival featured bands of the day including; Yes, Cuby’s Blues Band, Deep Purple, Fleetwood Mac and others. The set list included A Saucerful of Secrets as the closer, but that has not made it to this recording or any other known recording.

This recording is *very old* however sound quality rates Good to Very Good in places. This recording has been speed corrected, and some cuts have been treated with fades to produce a more enjoyable listen. Some of the dropouts were unable to be treated as this is a mono recording.

Jerry Garcia – Essen, Germany (03/28/81)

This is a 48-minute recording of an informal conversation
between Jerry Garcia and Ayatolla H?bsch (?), held at
Garcia’s hotel room in the afternoon before the Rockpalast show.

Topics include Illuminati books, islam and the Sikhs.
Somewhere in the middle the telephone rings. Jerry picks up
and talks to Brent for a moment. At the end H?bsch starts
singing a song to Jerry, who then accompanies him on an
acoustic guitar.

This is flac encoded & tagged version of shnid: 15595

This recording saw minimal circulation when it was reportedly
sold in Germany in the 80s. Many thanks are due to Tilli for
obtaining a copy of the master cassette. I applied some denoising
in SoundForge; the sound is not optimal but still listenable.
I don’t know much about H?bsch (who contributes at least as much
to the conversation as Garcia) except that he was a writer
and “beat poet” and he converted to islam in the late seventies.

Missing Track 2

Date and Program Notes: Rolf Wolf

Televised as a Rockpalast Special:
The correct date for the Van Morrison show is Sunday April 4th, 1982.
The Rockpalast Night – where this show was taken from started on April 3rd around 11:00 pm with Rick James.
Van Morrison played the 2nd Set and this was around 1:00 am on April 4th, 1982.
Therefore the date of the actual show started on April 3rd (in the late evening) and ended on April 4th, the late show,
(in the early morning).

The broadcast date was the following evening April 4th, 1982.
Most of the Rockpalast shows are broadcast the date following the actual show.
Hence the show was played over the 3rd and 4th of April 1982.
It was broadcast live across Europe on April 4th, 1982 later that evening.
This is why this show sometimes circulates as April 3rd , 1982.

Rolf Wolf’s Remaster Notes:
My friend Manfred startet in the end of the last year to transfer some of his old analog Rockpalast Recordings on hard disc.
He used for the transfer a Professional Studer 807,
Nakamichi HiCom II and a Terratec EWX 24/96 Soundcard for A/D Converting in Very High 24bit Quality.
He Burned this (very big) 24bit WAV on a DVD-R and sent it to me.

So we had made all the digital steps in 24 Bit and Dithering only One Time in 16bit.
My part was a (small part), Sound Optimizing, Fade Ins/Outs, to Fixed Trackmarker and Dithering in 16bit/44.1KHz.
Software of cource the good old WavLab and for Dithering the Apogee UV22HR PlugIn.

This Van Morrison show was recorded from FM with a Revox Reel and a Revox Tuner in April of 1982.
The Sound Quality is Very Good.
This show is one of my Favorite Van Morrison Shows of all Time.

Especially “Summertime In England” is in my opinion the Best Version I’ve ever heard.
I had this show a few years ago Remastered.
But by this time Manfred had now made much better Anaglog Equipment,
and so we had to try to make a better Sound Quality in 24 Bit, (Glad we Did)

This was Recorded and Remastered in the Orignal 24 bit wav.
When all was done – it was at the end of the process (the last step).
Then it was Dithered to 16 Bit and Compressed to SHN, ready to share.
So this will Burn to Disc properly with No Problems if you want it to.

Rolf Wolf: ALSO NOTE
These SHN files DO NOT have all the loud pops on track 15 between the 1:00 minute thru 2:00 minute mark.
These are present on all other Van Morrison Essen, April 4th, 1982 Bootlegs that circulate.

This show is also known to circulate in other Bootleg versions such as
“Live In Essen” by Golden Stars (GSCD-1105, released 1990)
“Can You Feel The Silence” by Great Dane (GDR 8919)

There is only one Rolf Wolf Remaster from the Original SHN Files:
Van Morrison – Grugahalle Essen, Germany April 4th , 1982
