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

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.

Lineage info:
–The lineage for this recording remains uncertain. Many copies,
including the source for these shns, are listed as SBD>MR>PCM>D>CD.
However, Eaton lists this show as SBD>MC>C>D>CD. Therefore, this
show was likely mastered on cassette, and this recording sounds as
if it has one analog generation, plus or minus a possible PCM generation.

–splice at 9:57 in He’s Gone
–dropout at 1:27 in Around & Around
–U.S. Blues is from an unknown sbd source
–Sound Forge was used for normalization and minor edits

Geetarz Comments:

This is probably one of, if not the, most oft-booted Clapton shows ever, and it’s dizzying trying to keep track of all the different versions, remasters, etc. Rather than tell you which version I think you should listen to, I prefer just to put ’em up and let YOU decide.

There are debates as to the lineage of this recording – some sources list it as a soundboard, others as an impeccable audience recording. I tend to believe it is the latter, but even if I am wrong, does it really matter? If I feed you something you think is chicken, as long as it tastes like chicken, you’re full and who cares? Just enjoy the meal.

For me personally this is the 2nd official ROIO I came across of this performance, and the Slowhand Masterfile, although a bit dated now, has always stood the test of time in my opinion as a very worthy collection.

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.

From my harddiscs a rare recording in good quality
Thanks to the original uploader.

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.

This first surfaced in the Van Morrison trading community in the early 2000s and was treed via the Van Trades List. Although not stated clearly, I am assuming this is from the master tape.
