JEMS is thrilled to continue the JF Archive series, presenting another one of the nine Van Morrison performances recorded in and around Southern California circa 1973-74. For further details and backstory on JF, his tapes and the extraordinary lost Van performances from 1975 that started the series, please refer to the notes in Vol. Three:

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=524853

Unlike the initial Lost California tapes, JFís 1973-74 recordings have long been in circulation among collectors. However, this series marks the first-ever digitization and dissemination directly from cassette masters. The recordings were made with low-end equipment but yielded surprisingly listenable results.

The second Shrine show is another significant performance and recording.

Vanís setlist had evolved substantially since the Troubadour gigs in June, the most interesting changes to which were the inclusion of three new songs unreleased at the time. The first, ìI Paid The Price,î only saw official release on last yearís expanded edition of Itís Too Late To Stop Now. This is one of its five known performances, all in 1973. The next is the second-known version of ìTry For Sleep,î which premiered the night before, this being one of only four known appearances. It was finally released in a studio version on 1998ís The Philosopherís Stone.

The third, ìYou Done Me Wrong,î turns out to be more special still. It remains unreleased to this day, with no known studio recording. On top of that, it would only ever be performed at this show and the previous night at the Shrine before vanishing forever and tonightís version is even more lively. It name-checks some serious villains, from the Cosa Nostra to Jesse James, against a rollicking musical backdrop. Without JFís tapes, weíd never have the chance to hear it. Some websites list ìYou Done Me Wrongî as a cover of the Ray Price tune of the same name, but Van calls it out specifically as a new song, and while it is difficult to understand his full spoken intro, he does appear to say something about it being ìa single.î Fascinating.

Beyond the new material, Van again dips heavily into blues and R&B covers as he did the night before, including Bobby ìBlueî Blandís ìAinít Nothing You Can Do,î Ray Charlesí ìHard Times,î John Lee Hookerís ìBoogie Chilleníî and Willie Dixonís ìI Just Want To Make Love To You.î The rest of the show is crowd-pleasing material, with one set list change from the previous night at the Shrine as ìMoondanceî replaces ìAnd It Stoned Me.î

So we get all the rare songs from the previous show, plus one change. If you already downloaded the first night (available here: http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=601579), do you need the second? Yes, indeed you do, as JFís notes make clear:

ìI attended this show and recorded it, although I appear to have misplaced my tape. This particular recording was done by a guy I met just two or three times. He attended one of the colleges in Claremont, CA, where I lived. At this concert he recorded a single cassette worth of music. As he told me, he was not a Van fan and was just testing out new equipment. Iíve always preferred his recording to my own (now missing in action anyway) because the sound quality is significantly better than what I was getting. When I told him how much I admired the recording, he held the cassette out to me and said, ëHere. Itís yoursí.î

The mystery taper who gave JF his master tape was indeed using better equipment and recorded in stereo, resulting in a recording that is a material upgrade to JFís own efforts from the night before, and, to the best of my knowledge, very likely the best available recording of these rare song performances. It is rich, warm and clear. Samples provided. As a bonus, the taper also recorded five minutes of the opening act, Herbie Hancock, which we have included at the top as it appears on the master cassette.

JF also provided us with with a clipping of the newspaper advertisement for the Shrine shows along with his ticket stubs. Weíve included them in the files.

Once again, our gratitude goes to JF, who reached out on DIME (you could be next!) and offered us his archive, which had been sitting in boxes for over 20 years, 6000 miles away from where he lives today. Like so many early tapers, he had great stories to tell and the memories flooded back as we sorted through tapes. We are pleased to be able to bring his work to all of you. Please let him know through your comments that you are, too. We also appreciate the unnamed Van collectors who helped get JFís masters back in his control.

Thanks to Goody for checking the pitch. We always feel better when he has given his blessing to an important transfer. We also want to acknowledge the value and work of http://ivan.vanomatic.de, the definitive Van Morrison setlist archive on the web. It has been a constant reference resource for this entire series. Special shoutout to senormogul9 for helping us confirming the Herbie Hancock track. Finally, And kudos to mjk5510, who continues his yeoman duty as JEMSí post-production and quality-control supervisor. His contributions are absolutely vital in getting the music to you.

NOTES:
I decided to incorporate Diamonds On My Windshield and Spare Parts into a single track, despite that the back cover lists side B as tracks B1 – B5.
The condition of this vinyl bootleg was MINT when I played it back for digital transfer. There were only one or two pops, which I removed.
The exact date of this performance is unknown, but etree is claiming the date is from some point in February of 1975, so that’s what I’m going with (see link below).
Contrary to what the back cover says about the location of this recording, The Troubadour is technically located in West Hollywood, not Los Angeles.
Asylum Records released their own official compilation album entitled ‘Bounced Checks’, which does not contain anything from this recording.

JEMS is pleased to release the third in a series of recordings made by legendary taper Mike Millard, AKA Mike the MICrophone, best known for his masters of Led Zeppelin in and around LA circa 1975-77. For further details on how these tapes came to be lost and found again, as well as JEMS’ history with Mike Millard, please refer to the notes in Vol. One http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=500680

Our third installment is from the final performance of Dylan’s seven-night residency at the Universal Amphitheater in June 1978 (imagine playing a 27-30 song set for seven consecutive nights without a day off). Once again, the recording is not quite complete. Millard’s notes state, “Missed first song and most of second song.” In truth he missed the first three songs (the show-opening “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” “Love Her With a Feeling” and “Baby Stop Crying”) before he gets his trusty Nakamichi 550 up and running during “Mr Tambourine Man.”

Lossless Bob has no fewer than five entries for this show, though only identifies two distinct recordings, both of which are complete from the start, so, like its predecessors, it is likely this Millard master is uncirculated. And like nights one and three, what Millard did record is impressive. Samples provided.

We’ve marked this Recording A as, remarkably, Millard sent SG two different recordings of the show, done with two different tape decks and two different sets of microphones. The notes on each clearly state that Mike himself made both recordings, so while there is no other known case where Millard ran two rigs, we can only assume that on this night he did or perhaps he did so with an uncredited partner, as we know he frequently had helpers. Recording B will be Vol. Four in our series.

Bobtalk is particularly rich this night, including a highly entertaining moment towards the end of the show where Dylan says hello to some celebrities in the crowd, among them Joni Mitchell, Raquel Welch and Tom Petty. The transcription on Olof’s invaluable Still On The Road website also notes that Dylan offers that his favorite band is “a band I saw play with Bobby Blue Bland, 1968 I recall in New York. And this band comes as close to that band as I can find.” OK, now we know.

The June 7 set also includes three songs not featured in the sets on the other two Millard recordings from this run, “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right,” “Simple Twist of Fate” and “Oh Sister.”

JEMS is pleased to release the fourth in a series of recordings made by legendary taper Mike Millard, AKA Mike the MICrophone, best known for his masters of Led Zeppelin in and around LA circa 1975-77.

Incredibly, our fourth installment is an alternative SECOND Millard recording from the final performance of Dylan’s seven-night residency at the Universal Amphitheater in June 1978. That’s right, the same performance as Volume 3 of our series, but a different recording made by Millard with a completely different rig. In addition to his familiar AKG 451E mics (CK-1 capsules) > Nakamichi 550 set up, Millard ran a pair of Nakamichi CM-50 microphones into a Uher CR-240 cassette recorder. We believe this is the first verified example of Millard recording on different gear and he uses the same set up for future shows in our series.

Nakamichi CM-50 photos http://www.nakmics.com/nak-cm50.htm
Uher CR-240 photo http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Uher-cr240_hg.jpg

This recording also marks the first time in the run that Mike was able to capture the show from the very start, the instrumental version of “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.” So we get the beginning of the show, but not the full encore, as the last song of the night, “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” is omitted. (Note: It can be found on the Vol. Three recording of the same performance.)

The question you are probably asking yourself right about now is: OK, that’s all interesting minutiae, but which recording is better? I would give the nod to this one, which sounds just a tad sharper, clearer and fuller. Samples provided.

Lossless Bob has no fewer than five entries for this show, though only identifies two distinct recordings, both of which are complete, so, like its predecessors, it is likely this Millard master is uncirculated.

We’ve marked this Recording B to distinguish it from Mike’s other tape from the night. The notes on each reel (see image in the comments) clearly state that Mike himself made both recordings, so while there is no other known case where Millard ran two rigs, we can only assume that on this night he did or perhaps he did so with an uncredited partner, as we know he frequently had helpers.

Speaking of those helpers, JEMS’ Millard series has sparked a lot of comments and dialogue. A fellow taper we’ve gotten in touch with was one of those helpers who attended many shows with Mike. He wanted to let folks know that despite what you may have read, Mike was no loner. He had several close friends, many of whom shared his passion for music. Whoever drew that conclusion and perpetuated the loner profile was mistaken.

JEMS is pleased to release the second of a series of recordings made by legendary taper Mike Millard, AKA Mike the MICrophone, best known for his masters of Led Zeppelin in and around LA circa 1975-77. For further details on how these tapes came to be lost and found again, as well as JEMS’ history with Mike Millard, please refer to the notes in Vol. One http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=500680

Our second installment is from night three of Dylan’s residency at the Universal Amphitheatre in June 1978. This recording is more complete than the first night, but was again joined in progress. Millard’s notes state, “Missed first five minut[e]s of concert,” so his recording omits the show-opening “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” and “Love Her With a Feeling,” before he gets his Nakamichi 550 up and running during “Baby Stop Crying.”

Like night one, what Millard did record is, to my ears, mighty fine. Lossless Bob has two entries for this show, both of which appear to be the same recording based on the LB notations that they cut in the same song (“Forever Young”). Millard’s recording has no cuts in “Forever Young,” and while we haven’t done an A-B comparison, that detail suggests it is indeed a new and previously uncirculated source as night one was. Samples provided.

Olof’s essential and detail-rich Still On The Road website notes: “There are (sic) some confusion regarding these shows, the set lists are identical, but some sources claim that Joni Mitchell was present on this show [June 3] rather than the nigh[t] before.” I can confirm that the BobTalk transcription on Olof’s site for June 3 matches Millard’s tape, so it is safe to say Mitchell’s appearance, cited in the June 2 BobTalk, is properly attributed to the correct show.

A few additional notes:

In 1978, the Universal Amphitheatre was an open-air venue

This is the original transfer file-set, from the Master cassettes played back on Sony TC-D5M cassette deck (with Dolby B) > Tascam DA-20mkII DAT deck at 48k
Then DAT marked with programs that were transferred as track marks on the fly, by the Tas. CDRW700
So, program-marked DAT’s played back via DA20mkII -> Tascam CDRW700, with dither to 44.1, on-the-fly, by the tas.700

This original file-set was not touched in any way during the importing and flac’ing process.

Comments from the original uploader:
my 3rd JGB show in attendance – at the time i still knew i was lucky as hell to catch this show !!MISSISSIPPI MOON!!!.
Strong vocal performance throughout the show – especially powerful Forever Young…

Outstanding recording with one major and a few minor glitches –
d1t01 – static @ 07:05 – left as is.
d1t02 – static @ 00:42, 03:49 repaired.
d1t07 – static pop @01:46 repaired.
d2t01 – Lt channel static @ 00:04 repaired.
d2t04 – CUTS OFF at the end…
Clapping (in time) by either Gloria or Jaclyn can be heard throughout.

Thanks to Harry A. for the seeds.
