From the original uploader
This is a great recording! Excellent stereo sound…just a little wow and flutter (speed ‘wobble’) creeps in here and there (at it’s worst on the last couple of tracks on CD 2), and Sister Ray gets cut off. Overall it’s a magnificient recording for it’s time, or for any time for that matter – as good as many mixing desk or FM recording, and a great ‘feel’ to it. Forget the dry sound of some mixing desk and certain well known tapers uploads … this sounds like being there!

The date is slightly puzzling…according to doc it was 30th October, but other records suggest Lou played Philadelphia on that date. We wanted to get this online, and perhaps someone can help on the date? As you will hear it’s a great recording, and I’ve had upping this on my ‘to do’ list for a while, so here you are.

On the technical side, no audio processing was done : ODoc55 pointed out no PC was used for the transfer to disc. To get this onto Dime, using a PC was kind of essential, but I did no audio processing : aside from noting how precious some Lou fans can be about that, there was no need. The only work done was sorting out the track splits, they needed some tidying up, and that was done very carefully.

Dan Lampinski recorded over 100 concerts in the Providence/Boston area, mostly between 1974 and 1978. His earliest recordings were made with an internal microphone deck, and though they are somewhat lo-fi compared to his later work, some very great moments in rock history were captured for posterity. In late 1974 he bought a Sony TC-152SD tape recorder, a Sony ECM-99 stereo microphone, and began using Maxell cassettes. He was also fortunate enough to have a friend who provided excellent taping seats for many shows, resulting in high quality recordings. In 1977, he switched over to a Nakamichi 550 tape recorder, two Nakamichi CM-300 microphones, and continued using Maxell cassettes.

He recorded many of the major 70’s bands: Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull, ELP, Kiss, Black Sabbath, The Who, Al Stewart, Alice Cooper, Jeff Beck, Bruce Springsteen, Supertramp, Jean-Luc Ponty, Moody Blues, Neil Young, The Faces, Rush, Rick Wakeman, Kansas, as well as several “under the radar” acts.

Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ’ing has been done to any of the transfers. Feel free to EQ, matrix, patch, etc and re-post if you like, just give Dan credit for the original recording.

Dan was very meticulous about taking good care of his tapes and is very pleased that these recordings will now circulate among the trading community. Please honour his kindness and generosity by sharing these recordings freely.

The transfers are available as 16bit/44.1KHz flac files suitable for CD burning, and also as 24bit/96KHz flac files for those who prefer the higher resolution.

Always remember – the more generous you are with your music, the more it comes back to you.

Heroin sounds very good here, and Oh Jim has an extended drum solo. Rock ‘n’ Roll is very funky too.

The CD-R I received this on had the sound considerably balanced to the right on CD 1, and significantly to the
left on CD 2, so some corrective work was carried out.

Notes from the original uploader:

The late 1974 US tour to promote “Sally Can’t Dance” was Lou’s amphetamine and alcohol – fuelled assault on the unsuspecting youth of North America. The RCA publicity machine had moved into top gear, but Lou was speeding way, way ahead of them. While they were pushing him as a user-friendly glam-rock/white soul superstar, he was dying iron crosses in his hair, living with a half-Mexican transsexual called Rachel and (simulating) shooting up on stage. The new LP and 45 were being being heavily promoted via nationwide TV ads featuring our man in trademark leather jacket, blonde hair and shades (…follow the bouncing ball and sing along with Lou…..). Whatever RCA were doing, it worked, and “Sally” was in the US top 10 LP chart. Lou was later quoted as saying “….I slept through that LP – whatever they suggested I said yes….”. It seemed that the further Lou descended into self-parody, the more records he sold, and the more pressure RCA put on him to produce even more “product”. This would ultimately backfire in mid 1975, when he vomited up “Metal Machine Music” and then had a very public breakdown during the Australian leg of the ’75 world tour. Lou wouldn’t perform in public again until late 1976.

I think this is a simply outstanding show. Lou may be out of it, but the band most certainly are not. I love the way you can hear Lou slapping the mic stand at the end of “Vicious”. The vocals alternate between detached and manic throughout this set, but are particularly expressive during “Kill Your Sons” (surely the best EVER live version of this song). It’s as if he’s standing on the edge of a cliff and he’s just about to jump off because he KNOWS he can fly. This tour was the only outing for “NY Stars” and “Animal Language” – these live renditions sound better than the studio versions to me. You can hear him sneering as he spits out the words to “NY Stars”. It sounds as if someone broke a string during “Animal Language”: the band start a loose jam while it’s being replaced. Lou starts vamping the words to “Waiting” during the jam, and just continues singing it when the band move on to the “Sally Can’t Dance” riff. The end result is a unique medley of “Waiting” and “Sally” (you have to wonder how long it took Lou to realise he was singing the wrong song – he did pretty much the same at the Chalmette show in November, singing “Vicious” while the band played “Sweet Jane”). “White Light White Heat” is a heavy metal prototype for every late 1970s punk band. “Goodnight Ladies” is a gas, with the whole band gathering round the microphone – you can (just) hear someone in the background asking where the “Jacks” (Jack Daniels) is…..they were having a good time. “Rock And Roll” is simply sublime.

The stereo recording made at Dayton was missing “Intro/Sweet Jane” and part of “Vicious” and there was a tape break during “Wild Side”: mono soundboard recordings from the New York concert have been used to replace those songs.
