Bootlegs of the Day: February 22, 2023

Now that I’ve gone through the dead Amazon Drive and downloaded all the shows that I didn’t have on any physical drive I’m actually going through those downloaded shows to verify that I really don’t have them on a physical drive. I initially did a pretty quick look to see if I had them, and was quick to download them if I didn’t see them. But now I can do a thorough search. There are some shows that were already in a drive and I get to delete the downloaded files and some that I still can’t find.

Those shows I’m logging and filing and sometimes uploading. The sometimes is because there are a lot of them and I don’t want to get overwhelmed. They will get uploaded at some point in the future, just not today.

Mixed in with all of those recent Amazon downloads are other shows that I’ve downloaded from other places over the last few months and didn’t get around to sorting. Those are also sometimes going into the upload today pile. I’ll probably post most of those over the weekends since they are mostly from artists I don’t collect, but I’ll sprinkle some in here and there. Today you get a Doors show.

And a new Bob Weir compilation. And an old Mydland studio album and some (mostly) previously posted Grateful Dead shows.

Notes from The Midnight Cafe:

The notes on this are confusing. There were more songs played in the second set but none of these sources seem to include them. Some of the songs have been officially released so perhaps they were originally removed for that reason. But the notes don’t say. I think I have put them together in a manner that makes sense in terms of what is actually included. If you know more information please add a comment. If you have the full show and want to share it, please send me a message.

From the original uploader:
It’s believed the source material for both those torrents came from this set of LPs. You’ll have to be the judge for that.

These two performances are an eye-opener if you’ve never heard them before. What you get is a wowser recording of an in-shape, ready to kill you Jim Morrison. The man is out for blood and it shows. The only thing wrong here, and it’s the ONLY thing is that Jim is off mike for the first “When The Music’s Over”. The recording is clear enough that you can just about hear him, but alas there is nothing that can be done about that now. The material itself is stellar and the band is in top form. Enjoy this show, it’s a mind-ripper.

Notes from the original uploader:

A 1st gen audience recording. Jim is pretty drunk for this show and has a lot of fun with the audience. Unlike in Miami, he doesn’t berate the crowd, but does threaten to kill someone if his monitors aren’t turned up as “Five To One” starts. “Hey listen, if I can’t hear myself a little bit louder than that, I’m just gonna quit, go out, and kill some people! C’mon!” The band keeps vamping but Jim continues to playfully talk with the audience. After over six minutes of banter he asks, “What song are we singing?” and finally begins the lyrics to “Five To One.” After a surprisingly tight version of “When The Music’s Over,” the band goes into “Soul Kitchen” and during the song’s second verse, Jim misses his cue. Toward the end of the song, the band realizes that Jim isn’t interested in finishing the lyrics and they break into “Light My Fire.” By the end of the concert, Jim is incoherent and screaming more and more until he finally jumps into the audience. He manages to get back onstage (with the help of a number of stage hands) and barely finishes “Light My Fire” before leaving the stage. At the very end of the tape, you can hear the house announcer ask the audience for Jim’s coat. (“Has anyone seen Jim Morrison’s coat?”) Definitely an interesting night as far as Doors shows go. Only wish we had a better quality recording. Enjoy.

Soundboard Recording

Multi-Track Master > DAT > DAT > CDR > WAV > Flac Frontend > FLAC (lvl 8, SBE aligned)

Notes from the original uploader:

For years, The Doors’ performance at the Isle Of Wight has only been available in an edited or incomplete form. The most popular release, “Palace Of Exile,” is missing over a minute in the middle of “The End” and the intro to “When The Music’s Over” is severly edited. Audience recordings of the show are missing “Roadhouse Blues.” Previously on this site someone offered a matrix of the audience and soundboard sources in order to recreate the complete concert in the best quality available. Now for the first time, we have a master DAT source for the COMPLETE Isle Of Wight concert in perfect soundboard quality. At almost 70 minutes total, this is as good as it gets until an official release gets made — if one is ever made.

This comes direct from the multi-track master recording. Quality is near perfect. The only downside is that the stereo separation isn’t very good. It sounds like it’s an unmixed copy of the multi-track master. So you’ll hear Ray’s organ more in the center than it should be and Ray’s vocals are mixed way down so you don’t hear them at all during “Break On Through” and other songs. (A good thing for some?) Still, I would place the overall quality as better than “Palace Of Exile.” Little to no hiss. Bass level is much more reasonable. Sharper sound quality overall.

One small note: About 4:29 into “The End,” the music drops out for about 5 seconds and you only hear Jim’s voice. Not sure why, but “Palace” doesn’t have this mixing
