ACID TEST. October 2, 1966. San Fransisco State, San Francisco, California. Oh my, a strange one. A collection of interview snippets (Jerry Garcia, Ken Kesey), strange poetry, atonal music (so this is where Sonic Youth comes from) and other strangeness.
RYAN ADAMS. NORTH STAR. September 28, 2000. Philadelphia, PA. I traded for this one to see what all of the fuss was about. Mr. "It" you know. Crystal clear sounding boot. Doesn't make up for Limp Bizkit, but he's pretty good.
RYAN ADAMS & THE PINKHEARTS. OCTOBER 9, 2001 (2) Louisville, Kentucky. A slick soundboarder. With his amazing twang somewhere between Van Morrison & Nils Lofgren and talent on loan from God, think this is a great show. Band could be a little tighter, but that might be the idea.
RYAN ADAMS. DECEMBER 8, 2001. Chicago, Illinois. Nice show from the past future of rock and roll.
RYAN ADAMS. GOLD OUTTAKES. Somewhat a revalation - 10 cuts all good. You even get an urecognizable cover of "Brown Sugar." Irrefutable evidence of his huge talent. Wow.
RYAN ADAMS. JUNE 3, 2007 (2) Paris, Franc. Very good, clean recording. THe vocal is a tad understated by that is probably the way the Easy Tiger wants it. 18 Tunes over two discs, Ryan sound healthy, relaxed if not overly mellow.
AEROSMITH. WELCOME BACK JOE. Bakersfield, California. 1984. A well recorded show, this is, well...fun. Don't know what holds me back on these home town favorites, I even bought their Guitar Hero game.
THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND. MELISSA. From an acoustic show on June 11,1992 in L.A. Outstanding sound quality and 2 kickin' versions of the title track. Lots of incredible guitar playing from these Southern gentlemen. I should be more into these guys than I am. Setlist only.
ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND. JANUARY 17, 1971. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Strong recording with some flaws that may be source related. An Endless jammy for my taste - no song ever needs to be over 10 minutes long, dig. These longhairs need to heed the Ramones.
DAVE ALVIN & THE GUILTY MEN. OCTOBER 19, 1998 (2) Lexington, Kentucky. With bonus tracks of 11/7/98 opening slot for Dylan. Soundboarder. Good American music from this cult favorite.
CONCERT FOR AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL (3) June 15, 1986, East Rutherford, New Jersey. FM broadcast. You get a number of short sets - the good (Peter Gabriel, U2), the bad (The Hooters) and the Ugly (Peter Paul & Mary). Bunch of others too.
JOHN ANDERSON. JUNE 22, 1996. Stockton, California. This is an okay audience taping from this terrific roots, country rocker. I think one of the best country voices - ever. A bunch of nice stuff, his big hit "Swingin" but I was moved by "Mississippi Moon."
THE ANIMALS. THE DELUXE BBC FILES (2) Contains a documentary of sorts, Eric Burden interviews, and then all the animal in studio performances a the Beeb.
THE ANIMALS. AT THE BBC. Nice collection of BBC performances.
ANTI-NUCLEAR AND DISARMAMENT RALLY (2) June 12, 1982, Central Park, New York City. Radio broadcast from the old "NO NUKES" movement. You get Jackson Browne, Joan Baez, Bruce Springsteen, Linda Ronstandt, James Taylor, Bonnie Riatt, John Hall, Graham Nash.
FIONA APPLE. February 26, 2000. Rochester, New York. Fair audience taping with a muddy sound and alot of echo in the vocal...As they say in baseball, a million dollar arm and a ten cent head.
ARCTIC MONKEYS. JANUARY 1, 2006. Koeln. High quality radio broadcast. Sharp pacing from this snappy ensemble. I stand on the side of the Monkeys. I like cathcy, poppy rock songs.
ARCTIC MONKEYS. March 27, 2006. National Public Radio. More sizzle in this 50 minute show. They ain't the Beatles, but they are the next Oasis.
ARMADILLO WORLD HEADQUARTERS November 23, 1972, Austin, Texas. I made the location the title of this disc as I didn't know how else to title it. don't know the story of this show, but it is really quite good. Consists of JERRY GARCIA, PHIL LESH, BILL KRUETZMANN, LEON RUSSELL, MARY EGAN and DOUG SAHM all singing a variety of songs.
JOAN ARMATRADING. NOVEMBER 17, 1995. Chicago, Illinois. Defying catagorization is Joan's sole problem. A great songwriter, singer and rocker, damn it. Radio broadcast.
JOAN ARMATRADING. APRIL 12, 2007. Hamburg, Germany. Firstly, a nice clean taping. As she states, "we're going to play some songs you know and some you don't. The dont knows are the new songs." Love her strong and unique voice.
JOAN ARMATRADING. A WOMAN IN LOVE. September 6, 2012. Wicked clean sound boarder from this hardy music veteran.
LOUIS ARMSTRONG. MAY 8, 1954. Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Soundboard of the great man, the titan of New Orleans Jazz.
ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL. JULY 10, 1973. Denver, Colorado. Soundboard and oh what fun these Western Swing boys are. It may be a sub genre, but what a sub genre it is.
ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL. JULY 19, 1973. Sausalito, California. Super sound and a great kickin' show. These guys are truly fantastic - this is an underappreciated genre of country.
THE AVETT BROTHERS. JULY 11, 2008. Masontown, West Virginia. I got the boot on reputation, having never heard them before. Verdict: Excellent!
HOYT AXTON. PALAMINO CLUB 1977. Radio broadcast. A wonderful talent showcased in a sweet little show. This is folk infused country or country infused folk not sure which.
HOYT AXTON. JULY 19, 1982 (2) JULY 19, 1982. Entertaining soundboard as Hoyt is an entertaining presence leading his band through his various hits and covers. Love it!
THE B-52s. STUDIO JAM 1978. Messy studio appearance, but fun.
THE B-52s. AUGUST 24, 1979. Boston, Massachusetts , bonus tracks from Toad's Place in New Haven. The first part is the opening set for the Talking Heads at Berklee Performance center broadcast on the radio. Holy shit, I was there for that show. Great fun. The bonus tracks are unlistenable, but who the heck cares.
THE B-52s WORLD MUSIC FESTIVAL November 26, 1982. This is a party band not made for live cds. With that said this soundboarder is plenty of fun with a spirited finale of "Dance this Mess" and yes "Rock Lobster."
THE B-52's. January 13, 1990. (2) Portland, Oregon. Hey I've seen these guys a couple of times, I just don't groove to their bootlegs. I made it through both disc, you won't. Sounds like it was recorded from the last row - you can hear the singing and all, just seems far away.
BACHMAN-TURNER OVERDRIVE. JULY 1, 1984. (2) Detroit, Michigan. If you don't aim too high, it easier to hit the target. BTO is just a fun band - not deep. Not complex. Just fun. Radio Broadcast.
BACHMAN-TURNER OVERDRIVE. AUGUST 17, 1984. Winnipeg, Canada. FM Broadcast. I enjoy these guys, Fuck you!
JOAN BAEZ. AUGUST 17, 1963. Forest Hills, New York. Soundboard. The years have been kind to Joan, but back in her day, it was so damn earnest it could be painful and self righteous. The voice a perfect high pearcing warble.
JOAN BAEZ. LIVE IN OXFORD. March 6, 2007 (2) Imperfect audience taping -- you need to turn up the volume to hear her chat between songs and then turn it down during the music. There are worst things to do, but it is work. Joan has aged gracefully and looks and sounds beautiful and healthy. Does a funny little Dylan impersonation during "Love is a 4 Letter Word."
JOAN BAEZ. JULY 3, 2014 (2) Los Angeles, California. Very charming and enjoyable show. She's a beautiful and talented women. Brings out the Indigo Girls for a couple of songs at the end.
JOAN BAEZ. NEW YORK 2016 (2) January 27, 2016. Beacon Theatre, New York City. It's her 75th birthday and David Crosby, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Mavis Staples, Emmylou Harris, Damien Rice, Jackson Browne, Judy Collins, Paul Simon and Richard TThompson stop by to help celebrate. Perfect recording.
THE BAND. CROSSING THE GREAT DIVIDE. (3) Career spanning retrospective of live & outtake material. As you can imagine, plenty of Dylan related stuff in this treasure trove.
THE BAND. WE CAN TALK SESSIONS. January 10, 1968. Various stabs along with studio chat on the recording of the song.
THE BAND. AUGUST 31, 1969. ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL. UK. Tinny and shitty recording, but I kind of felt that I had to keep it due to it's historic nature. If my memory serves me well, I believe that this set preceded Dylans.
THE BAND. ROOSEVELT STADIUM. Jersey City, New Jersey. August 1, 1973. Nice clean boot from the men who would be kings.
THE BAND. ACADEMY OF MUSIC. December 28-31, 1971. New York City. Includes an 8 song rehearsal. Claims to be 25 previously unreleased tracks from the shows that spawned "Rock of Ages." From Master Reel sources which sound sensational.
THE BAND. WATKINS GLEN 1973 (4) Acceptable, but certainly not good sound quality. Had to have this for it's historical value. Includes soundchecks, both sets and jams with the Dead, Almans etc.
THE BAND KING BISCUIT FLOUR HOUR. August 16, 1976. Superb show, recording, ah everything. Gig was 3 months prior to the Last Waltz.
THE BAND. NIGHT AT THE PALLADIUM. SEPTEMBER 18, 1976. New York, New York. A soundboard but not a great sounding one if that is possible. I just love those songs, man.
THE BAND. FRIENDS & OTHER STRANGERS. Some additional tracks from "The Last Waltz" probably material without overdubs and remixing, etc.
THE BAND. THE COMPLETE LAST WALTZ (4) The commercial release was 2 discs long WE got it all on four.
THE BAND. MANDEL HALL July 1, 1983. Chicago, Illinois. Terrific show and radio recording. Always a good show from these guys.
THE BAND. DECEMBER 31, 1983 (2) San Francisco, California. The boys are back in town, early reunion show sans Robbie Robertson, intro'd by Bill Graham. Sounds great.
THE BAND. JULY 21, 1984 (2) Toronto, Canada. FM Broadcast of the SEVA Benefit. With a short interview at the end.
THE BAND SEPTEMBER 7, 1984 (2) Burlington, Vermont. Soundboard. Fantastic stuff w/o Robbie - didn't need him live.
THE BAND. AUGUST 1, 1985. Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Sweet soundboard providing a wondrour souveneir.
THE BAND. TOMBSTONE. A lost album san Robertson produced by Polar Bear Jules Shear in 1990 or 1991 rejected by Sony. Certainly enjoyable but a struggle between recapturing old glories and seeking new ground.
THE BAND. FEBRUARY 6, 1986. Late Show. New York City. Superb recording of a post Robbie band.
THE BAND. FEBRUARY 16, 1986. Albany, New York. Nice soundboard show from this under apprececiated reunion.
THE BAND. FEBRUARY 16, 1986. Albany, New York. Nice soundboarder with the first half of the show largely era recent material. Closes the show out with an acapalla "River of Babylon." Fabulous.
THE BAND. OCTOBER 8,1986. Santa Cruz, California. Another terrific recording, I guess a song was missed when he flipped the cassette over.
THE BAND. DECEMBER 20, 1986. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Soundboard. Love it, man. Great show.
CONCERTS FOR THE INAUGURATION OF BILL CLINTON. January 17, 1993 (3) Washington, DC. This is the Blue Jeans Bash which I am listing in The Band session as they were the house band for much of this. You get their performance along with a number of others including Bob Weir, Bob Dylan, Clarence Clemons, Ronnie Hawakins, Dr. John, Don Johnson - yes that Don Johnson and others.
THE BAND. DECEMBER 4, 1993. Toronto, Ontario. Slick radio broadcast, the reunion is on.
THE BAND. NEW ORLEANS JAZZ FESTIVAL. 1994. Very nice show at the famed Fest. You get all the mighty songs done well, along with a power outage.
THE BAND. AUGUST 26, 1994 (2) Asbury Park, NJ. A soundboard from the Stone Pony. Super cool.
THE BAND. MAY 16, 1996. Las Vegas. FM Broadcast. The end is sadly near but this is a scintillating show and a near perfect recording.
THE BAND. JULY 6, 1994. Chicago, Illinois. Good stuff from a post last waltz. No Robbie, but heck I'll take 'em whenever I can get 'em.
THE BAND sort of. THE LAST WALTZ 40th ANNIVERSARY. (2) August 6, 2016. New York City Helmed by Larry Campbell and helped by Lucinda Williams, Buddy Miller, Bob Weir and others. Audience taping so imperfect but so glad I own it.
THE BEACH BOYS. SMILE. The world's most overpraised band with one of the most famous bootlegs of all time. Big woop.
BEASTIE BOYS. ORIGINAL ILL. It's purported to be the original, uncut version with a few different tracks. A couple of different lyrics and musical stuff here and there. Cool.
BEASTIE BOYS. MAY 22, 1992 (2) Tradewinds. Seabright, New Jersey. This is the boys at the peak - IMO - terrific sound and great varied show. This is simply alot of fun.
BEASTIE BOYS. TURNING JAPANESE. From their 1994/5 tour of Japan, I love these guys and they perform well, but best to listen to studio material. Minor glitch on a track or 2. I put together some neat artwork for it.
BEASTIE BOYS. AUGUST 20, 1998 (2) Philadelphia, PA. Soundboard. An unappreciated legacy as the combination of beats, samples, rhymes, riffs and humor is combustible. Simply put: they are a lot of fun. What's wrong with dat?
BEASTIE BOYS. NOVEMBER 3, 2008 (2) Denver, Colorado. A very good recording of these middle aged rapper. I still like 'em.
THE BEAT (FEATURING PAUL COLLINS. DECEMBER 9, 1987. San Rafael, California. Terrific radio show from one of my favorite forgotten Cali New Wave bands. This is high powered pop music.
PAT BENATAR. LIVE IN AUSTIN. October 6, 1981. Austin, Texas. King Biscuit Flower Hour. Hey, she's kind of hot and kind of fun to listen to as well. This is straight ahead arena rock, I know it's only rock n roll, but I like it.
BECK. STRANGE FASCINATION. September 1, 1996. Fun and informal feeling bootleg -outstanding. No setlist or artwork.
BECK. May 8, 1999. Not quite as good as the other disc, a little too much chat, but his talent shines through.
BECK. SANTA MONICA 2006. The Village, Los Angeles, KCRW Broadcast. October 31, 2006. Not sure what this is, it's sounds like studio acoustic versions of The Information, but no chat, or ID of any kind. Good stuff.
CHUCK BERRY. MARCH 19, 1967. San Francisco, California. Enjoyable Chuck show with the great and strange man holding court. Very Very good sound quality.
CHUCK BERRY. MARCH 29, 1972. London. He done a million shows, most of them terrible. This one was awesome.
CHUCK BERRY. BBC LONDON 1972, Alan Freed 1955 (7?), Studio outtakes. A great offering with some warm, chatty Chuck delivering the goods. Unfortunately no artwork or setlist. A+ material.
CHUCK BERRY. SEPTEMBER 1, 1980. Seattle, Washington. Soundboard Chuck - you know the story, shitty back up band, charming, amazing Chuck.
CHUCK BERRY. JULY 1983. Italy. Sketchy but acceptable taping. You know how you hear all those stories of Chuck taking cash and playing with a shit pick up band. Well, here's the proof. It's almost laughable the way the band starts in, must have been a couple of awed kids who can hardly play.
CHUCK BERRY. LIVE & ROCKIN'. December 31, 1988. Palladium Theatre, NYC. WNEW Broadcast. Excellent sounding, excelling rocking show.
CHUCK BERRY. NOVEMBER 18, 2007. The Netherlands. Nice disc for the collection. I think the band is a bit out of sync, but at 81 (that's Eighty one!!!), he's the Godfather of it all.
ELVIN BISHOP. JULY 8, 1973. (2) Sausalito, California. Terrific KSAN radio broadcast. While he had the one solo hit, he was certainly much larger than that. A great talent.
BJORK. SUGAR CANDY KISSES. September 8, 1993. Soundboard boot from Denmark. Always thought she looked like a smurf...an outrageous looking smurf.
BJORK. JUNE 23, 2003. Berlin, Germany. Soundboard. I listened to this with my youngest as she is one of his favorites. A bit same sounding, but she is an interesting talent.
LEWIS BLACK. BOSTON 2008 (2) He's a pretty funny guy raving about sex, golf and politics.
NORMAN BLAKE MARCH 24, 2000. Suwannee Spring Fest. He's the king of low key, Olde time music. Perfect soundboard show of mirth, humor & melody, O Brother!
BLIND BOYS OF ALABAMA. OCTOBER 30, 2009. Salzburg, Austria. Radio broadcast. Superb gospel show from this long running operation. Superb.
BLONDIE. OLD WALDORF. September 21, 1977. Late set. How "good" are these guys. Well, that's a bad question. Debbie puts alot into those vocals and they were fun. Nice recording.
BLONDIE. ALL CHILDREN ARE DRUNK. San Francisco '77 and NYC 77/78. My version slightly different that the setlist that I found. History hasn't exactly been kind to Debbie Harry & Crew. Hey she's still around and kinda hot for 50-something. Anyway, this is early stuff before the hits and after Warhol.
BLONDIE. HAMMERSMITH ODEON. JANUARY 12 or February 12, 1980 (2) London, UK. Soundboard. Call me crazy, but I think Deborah Harry was a very, very good rock singer. Under heralded. This is good stuff which includes a couple of covers - "Heroes," "Louie Louie, "I Feel Love."
BLONDIE. AUGUST 1, 2011. Liverpool, England. Radio Broadcast. Hey, a fun show and a band with enough hits and other stuff to get a tad more respect than they have received.
BLOOD, SWEAT & TEARS. JUNE 6, 1977 (2) Helsinki, Finland. Sounboard recording of the early BST. A bit jazzy for my taste, but that is what peopled loved about this early incarnation.
BLOOD, SWEAT & TEARS. November 8, 1977 (2) Bottom Line, New York City. MP3 Version. Fun, lively, funky show from a band that time has certainly forgotten - well I haven't and think they're cool so fuck you. Clean FM Show - excellent sounding recording.
THE BLUES BROTHERS. DECEMBER 31, 1978. San Francisco, California. Soundboard. Opening set for the Dead and it's largely the familiar one later used on their first release. What fun. And what a band.
BLUES TRAVELER. JULY 4, 2002 (3) Red Rocks. While they veer a little too far into jam band land for my tastes, there's no denying the talent. Popper can sing and wail on the harp and the rest of the band is beyond capable. It's just that they play so many damn notes. And yeah, this is a whisper clean soundboarder.
THE BODEANS (2) APRIL 20, 1988. Boston, Massachusetts. WBCN broadcast. I think I might have been at this one, I know I saw these guys at the Metro, but it might have been a different show. Anyway, you may have missed this fine little band out of Wisconsin. They are fantastic.
THE BODEAMS. WAUKESHA 1988. Terrific little radio broadcast. Dig this band.
THE BODEANS. FEBRUARY 17, 1992. Atlanta, Georgia. Radio broadcast. Super sounding boot, lots of fun.
THE BODEANS. RECORD RELEASE PARTY FOR "GO SLOW DOWN" October 11, 1993. Chicago, Illinois. Nice little gig at a Tower Record in Chicago to promote their new record - radio broadcast on WXRT. Outstanding. These guys should have been atleast bigger than Dave Matthews.
BOOKER T. & THE MG'S. FEBRUARY 7, 1971, Winterland, San Fransisco. Extraordinary collection from a superb set of musicians. Better than commerical sound. Mix of instruments along with the soul classics of the day ("Tracks of My Tears," "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay," etc). Booker's got a sweet, soulful voice. Highest recommendation.
THE BOOMTOWN RATS. MARCH 17, 1980, Boston, Massachusetts. Strong radio broadcast from the then mighty WBCN. No I wasn't there, out of state in college.
THE BOOMTOWN RATS. MAY 1, 1980. Tokyo, Japan. Excellent sounding show from these missing punk rockers. Should be included in their conversation.
THE BOOMTOWN RATS. JANUARY 24, 1981 (I think, tho possibly 1985) Soundboard recording of Geldof's band. A few nice hits, but somewhat forgotten since.
THE BOOMTOWN RATS. MARCH 17, 1981. Seattle, Washington. Another radio broadcast, a year later this time on the West Coast. They expanded their sound a little - synth, horns - not so sure it was a good idea.
BOOKER T & THE MGS. LIVE AT SLIMS. San Francisco, California. 1991. Sweet, mellow soundboard from these legends. They play all the songs you would want them to play.
BILLY BRAGG. DECEMBER 5, 1986. Vancouver. Radio broadcast though I somehow expected better sound. This is a real time capsule with rants on Thatcher, Bush I, Apartheid and the like.
BILLY BRAGG. AUGUST 31, 1999. Gene Autry Museum, Los Angeles (2) Terrific and charming audience boot with a verbose (!!!!) Billy telling tales and playing magnificiently.
BILLY BRAGG/WILCO OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 1998. A mix of demo's and live soundboard recordings. Only hear applause a couple of times on the disc. Not sure if Wilco is on the disc, but a number of Gutherie Project songs are covered. Awesome.
BILLY BRAGG AND JOE HENRY. SEPTEMBER 23, 2016. Nashville, Tennessee. Nice sound boarder including sound check of these two buddies on the road singing and promoting their train album.
BREWER & SHIPLEY. MY FATHER'S PLACE. 1978 (2) Soundboard recording of both the early and late shows. Best known for "One Toke Over the Line" I think B&S were more than that. There's lots of ideal harmony's here and a number of clever songs.
BRIDGE SCHOOL BENEFIT - 2nd December 4, 1988 (4) Oakland, California. Takes 4 discs to capture all the music, includes sets from Bob Dylan, Billy Idol, Tom Petty, Nils Lofgren, Jerry Garcia, Tracy Chapman and CSNY. Wow. Filed with Neil.
LEON BRIDGES. AUSTIN CITY LIMITS. October 2, 2015, Austin Texas. Sam Cooke lives! Super clean, soulful show.
BRINSLEY SCHWARZ. PEACE LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING. June 1974. A killer soundboard if not a revelation. I knew of this legendary band, but I never heard them before and wow. What a great sound - a mix of pub rock, soul and country. Outstanding stuff and a real must for this collection.
DAVID BROMBERG BAND. OCTOBER 19, 1976. Old Rosyln, New York. Charming show from this quixotic artist.
BIG BILL BROONZY. JULY 22, 1953. This is recording of an in studio recording from Studs Terkel's radio program. Great warm interview with wondrous music and charming chat. Special stuff.
CHUCK BROWN and the SOUL SEARCHERS. October 27, 1987. Munich, Germany. Soundboard. If you are not familiar with Chuck, "the father of Go-Go" music you are missing out. This is funky shit.
JAMES BROWN & THE FABULOUS FLAMES. NOVEMBER 25, 1967. Paris. A wicked funky soundboard - he's royalty, man.
JAMES BROWN. APRIL 7, 1968. Boston, Massachusetts. This is the famed concert put after the day after Martin Luther King was assassinated and televised to avoid rioting in the city and including speeches from then Mayor Kevin White among others. Not the best recording and uncertain of the source - I believe this has been commercially released in video format so perhaps sourced off of that, but lower level quality so I tend to doubt that.
JAMES BROWN. NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL. July 6, 1969, Newport, Rhode Island. Super soundboard. Loads of fun.
JAMES BROWN. MARCH 8, 1971. Just one funky disc! Killer show that will funk you up - the band was up and James was in his prime. For my money better than the famed, commercially released Apollo show. Has more energy and ambience.
JAMES BROWN & THE JB'S. AN AVALANCHE OF FUNK (2) September 1973. Switzerland. Soundboard. Whoa. Great stuff, here the first half or so features the band doing various soul and funk covers and then James enters the scene to funk it out. This is the price era JBs with Marceo, Fred, Lynn etc. Precious.
JAMES BROWN. SEPTEMBER 1, 1974. Zaire. "Rumble in the Jungle Show." A tinny but heartwarming soundboard with Fred & Maceo in attendence. Radio broadcast quality, a soundboard I guess, but the audiencde is well in the mix. More of a rockin' James than a funky one.
JAMES BROWN. SOUL TRAIN 1973 - 1974 SOUL TRAIN. Audio feed from a series of appearances on the legendary show. Imperfect TV type of sound, lotsa fun.
JAMES BROWN. BATON ROUGE 1982. 9 tunes, clearly not the whole show and a real delight. Maceo Parker in the band. Commercial sound just super.
JAMES BROWN. JANUARY 17, 1982 (2) New York City. It's friction' awesome, you've got Maceo and others in tow for great music in perfect sound quality. This is the code book.
JAMES BROWN. APRIL 12, 1983 (2) Houston, Texas. Early & Late shows Killer soundboard. Yeow!
JAMES BROWN. SUPERBAD!!!! (2) November 27, 1987. Bridgeport, Connecticut. A wicked cool set with superstar Maceo Parker leading the charge for the band. Great stuff.
JAMES BROWN. THE GODFATHER OF SOUL. October 12, 1992. San Francisco. Sweet, hard soundboard.
JUNIOR BROWN. SEPTEMBER 12, 1992. Austin, Texas. Radio performance - 18 song set in perfect sound, this is a fun little show with the announcer touting Junior's sunday night regular gig at some local bar. Lots of fun for -- a performer fully formed.
JUNIOR BROWN. SEPTEMBER 28, 1995 (2) Knoxville, Tennessee. WUOT Public radio broadcast, sounds great. He's a kick.
JUNIOR BROWN OCTOBER 25, 2003 (2) Albuquerque, New Mexico. A sharp audience taping of the Twang Cowboy King. He's a riot.
JUNIOR BROWN. JULY 8, 2005. Albuquerque, New Mexico. Soundboard. Fun show that keeps getting better and goovier as the night progressed. Excellent.
JACKSON BROWNE. FOR EVERYFAN. (4) Nicely compiled coolection, mostly from the sound mid 70's and late 90's shows. Sound ranges from outstanding to good, lots of talk, introductions, silly fun shit along with great musical performances. Jackson, you've got a sense of humor...I only have homemade artwork with nearly complete source info. Could be a fan compilation?
LENNY BRUCE. APRIL 12, 1962. I worshiped this guy when I was a teenager and memorized many of his routines & bits. I could swear he was funnier than this show indicates. Who knows, maybe it's me.
BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD. BRIDGE SCHOOL BENEFIT. October 23, 2010. Bass heavy audience taping, but I'm appreciate that I got a copy of this reunion.
ERIC BURDON NOVEMBER 21, 2013. The Netherlands. Soundboard recording. I saw Burden a few years ago and thought the show was off so my expectations on this boot were low. Gotta say, this is a great show, the band seemed strong and the material excellent.
SOLOMON BURKE. FEBRUARY 2, 2002. (2) Berlin, Germany. He's a licensed mortician, father of over 20, pushes the scale at 4 bills and rock and roll hall of famer. Great stuff, sounds great, underrated talent doesn't even begin to describe it.
SOLOMON BURKE. NOVEMBER 22, 2008 (2) Berlin, Germany. Excellent FM Broadcast. The man is the man.
T BONE BURNETT'S SPEAKING CLOCK TOUR. September 1, 2010. Los Angeles, California. I believe a TV broadcast, it's mostly the Secret Sisters with guest Elvis Costello & Jacob Dylan. Wonderous. Probably should be filed under Secret Sisters, but it was titled this way.
PAUL BUTTERFIELD BLUES BAND. SEPTEMBER 30, 1966. San Francisco, California. Soundboard - holy smokes what great sound especially considering it's vintage. Time has forgotten him, but I haven't.
THE BYRDS. IN THE STUDIO. 14 Studio outtakes with chat et al.
THE BYRDS. November 2, 1968 (2) San Francisco, California. Touching on many of their great songs. A delightful show. I really think noone sounds like McGuinn until Tom Petty came along. Pretty good sound considering the vintage. Loved.
THE BYRDS. BOSTON TEA PARTY. February 22, 1969. I'd call it a less than perfect soundboard at the much discussed famed club. I've seen innumerable shows in it's various incarnations most as Avalon. It's now a Hard Rock Cafe.
THE BYRDS. ASH GROVE. May 23, 1969. LA. Stereo Soundboard of the band at it's psychelic center, Linda Ronstadt, Gram Parsons get name checked and joins on stage, I think.
THE BYRDS THE COMPLETE FILMORE WEST CONCERTS (2) January 4, 1970. Early and late shows. Perfect sound, near perfect performance. Wow man!
THE BYRDS. APRIL 18, 1970 (2) Washington, DC. Superb later era show.
THE BYRDS. ROLLIN DOWN THE ROAD. April 20, 1970, Louisville, Kentucky. Super soundboard show.
THE BYRDS. EIGHT MILES HIGH IN AMSTERDAM (2) July 7, 1970. Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Call it a bad sounding radio show broadcast by our friends at WBAI. Still quite enjoyable as these guys are every inch the super group of their praised peers. Love "Amazing Grace," to "Willin" to the inevitable bunch of Dylan covers.
THE BYRDS. AUGUST 16, 1970. Filmore West, San Francisco Super soundboard with my friend, Gram Parsons, in tow.
THE BYRDS. PACIFIC MEMORIAL STADIUM. September 20, 1970. Stockton, California. A few small source glitches, but otherwise a masterpiece.
THE BYRDS. OCTOBER 17, 1970. Boston Tea Party, Boston, Ma. First set only, but it's a soundboard. Great.
THE BYRDS. BROOKLYN. October 23, 1970 Brooklyn, New York. A couple of source glitches, but this is a terrific sounding show.
THE BYRDS AND THE FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS. WHISKEY A GO-GO. September 19, 1970. Los Angeles. This is a special one with the Graham Parsons listed as a member of the Byrds on the liner notes. Generous soundboard with terrific performances and both bands on stage together ripping it up. A classic bootleg. Amazing.
THE BYRDS. LIVE IN ROCHESTER. November 7, 1970. Very entertaining show.
THE BYRDS. ALLEGHENY COLLEGE. 1972. Meadville, Pennsylvania. Super soundboard taping.
THE BYRDS. SEPTEMBER 22, 1989 (2) Nurenberg, Germany. Who knew this band was flying in some version in some kind of line up at this time? I didn't Regardless this is a terrific recording - quite snappy. Like it.
THE BYRDS (MCGUINN, CLARK & CROSBY) BOARDING HOUSE EARLY and LATE (4), San Francisco. December 8, 1987. Nice little show. Pretty good recording
DAVID BYRNE. JULY 20, 1994. Thoroughly enjoyable soundboard. He put together a great band and arrangements, too bad he didn't have the ambition to have charged his career forward. Even so, his contribution is formidable.
DAVID BYRNE. UNPLUGGED & MORE. Love this dude, but if a voice screams out for musical accompaniment his does. With that said, this is all in good sound with some great performances among its misses. Particularly dug the covers "Gypsey Women" and "Rockin' in the Free World" along with "Psycho Killer" as a killer closer.
DAVID BYRNE. CENTURY OF SONG (2) April 19, 2006. Bochum, Germany. Just sort of underwhelming - somehow I was hoping for more. Wasn't he rock's renaissance genius man according to Time Magazine about 25 years ago?
DAVID BYRNE. BRAZIL 2018. Sao Paolo, Brazil. There are a couple of source glitches on the audio, but I soldiered thru them. It's a soundboard and it's inspired stuff. I caught a local version of it so should you.
DAVID BYRNE. SEPTEMBER 15, 2018 (2) Queens, New York. WFUV Broadcast. Great stuff. Wondrous vision, he still has it.
LARRY CAMPBELL & TERESA WILLIAMS. April 19, 2016. Live from Jorma's Fur Peace Camp. I burned it off of a Jorma podcast. Much much better than his studio stuff, love Larry
HAYES CARLL. MARCH 30, 2005. Asheville, North Carolina. Soundboard show with a more straight forward country shitkicker sound. Also a different kind of vocal.
HAYES CARLL. NOVEMBER 30, 2006 San Marcos, Texas. Soundboard. Sweet little show - half solo and other half with one back up. Terrific.
HAYES CARLL. JANUARY 21, 2006 (2) Houston, Texas. Soundboard. Another fantastic performance from a surprising mature artist.
HAYES CARLL. SEPTEMBER 5, 2010 (2) Luckenbach, Texas. Two sets in soundboard sound. Terrific performances with warm anecdotes between songs. I frickin' love this guy.
HAYES CARLL. WORLD CAFE. February 11, 2011. Nice radio show - 10 tunes from this Texas wonder.
HAYES CARLL. FEBRUARY 26, 2011 (2) Dallas, Texas. Decent audience taping, but was dying to hear a 2011 show and this is the first one that came up. Part of the beginning set of shows promoting the new album. Lots of crowd noise throughout and distracting on every slow song.
HAYES CARLL. MARCH 9, 2012 (2) Kessler Theatre. An audience recording that still captures the charm, swagger and musicality of this superb artist.
HAYES CARLL. JUNE 16, 2012. Memphis, Tennessee. A solo acoustic set, a bit shambolic, a bit sloppy but fun as always.
JIM CARROLL DECEMBER 21, 1980 (late show). Boston, Massachusetts. WBCN Radio broadcast. Added to my collection over 30 years after I attended. I've always remembered this show both for the bizarre joke he in the middle of the show and the intensity of the music. Man, this show sounds fantastic - what a powerful rock and roll performance. Superb.
JIM CARROLL. 1981. Contains 8 live tracks from his show at My Father's Place in NYC along with 3 from the King's Biscuit flower hour.
THE CARS. DEMOS & RARITIES. History has been harsh on this outfit. These demo's feel Stiff Records like.: Inventive and kooky and a bit less slick then the ultimately commercial monster that was unleashed.
THE CARS. JULY 1, 1976. Boston, Massachusetts. Broadcast on WBCN - once a visionary radio station now simply another frequency on the dial. Hey 30 something years ago, this band was fresh and fun.
THE CARS. MARCH 21, 1977. Boston. Opening set for a rescheduled Bob Seger show which I attended not having any idea who this local unsigned band was. Didn't realize until years later when told who this opening act was. The sound quality is pretty bad at first, becomes bearable during this short set.
THE CARS. KING BISCUIT FLOWER HOUR. September 14, 1978, El Mocambo,Toronto, Canada. Notso bad these unappreciated Bostonians.
THE CARS. SEPTEMBER 22, 1978 New York City. FM Broadcast, another enjoyable show. C'mob, man lighten up this is enjoyable.
THE CARS. MOVING IN STEREO. Boston, 1984 FM Radio Broadcast. Good sounding disc - these new wavers were not made for the stage though.
THE CARTER FAMILY. 1953 JIMMY RODGERS MEMORIAL SHOW. Radio broadcast. 7 minutes. Supposedly the last time the original Carter Family performed together.
MOTHER MAYBELLE CARTER. JULY 5, 1969. Berryville. Great sounding 8 songs by the great lady of Country music. If you don't know who she is you are missing a big part of it.
PETER CASE. MARCH 23, 1998. Jamestown, New York. A snugly, expertly played show. Soundboard.
PETER CASE & VICTORIA WILLIAMS. WPFK-FM. May 15, 1988. This is a Pacifica radio folk show with their in studio guest appearance together. Guess they were romantic (still are?) at the time. Each performing a couple of songs. Victoria sings like a wounded bird, but her songs are quite original.
PETER CASE. July 22, 2000. Seattle, Washington. Soundboard. Peter + accompaniest on fiddle which worked most of the time. Coulda used a drummer.
FELIX CAVALIERE. LIVE SEABREEZE PARK. July 29, 1993, Brooklyn. Silly fun from the lead Rascal in this soundboard.
TRACY CHAPMAN. JULY 25, 1988, Philadelphia. Soundboard. With her musical yet meloncholy voice, still a pleasure.
TRACY CHAPMAN. FEBRUARY 12, 1991. Denver, Colorado. She's a wonderful talent, albeit a little on the sad side. Great sounding recording. Hey, what hapenned to her??
TRACY CHAPMAN. NOVEMBER 17, 2008 (2) Copenhagen, Denmark. A warm solo show which drags at time, but still throughly enjoyed. Decent recording certainly capturing the acoustic set.
RAY CHARLES. OCTOBER 27, 1984. Warsaw, Poland. Nice jazzy show - perfect soundboard.
RAY CHARLES & THE RAYETTES. LIVE AT ESTIVAL JAZZ LUGANO 1986. July 1, 1986. Really won me over, perhaps a revelation to me as I have never seen the "genius" in Ray. A great, warm r&B vibe and I dig it. Great soundboard recording.
RAY CHARLES and MACEO PARKER. NOVEMBER 19, 1993 (2) Leverkusen, Germany. Call me a Maceo fan, not a Ray fan whom I can't warm up to. Anyway, a great sounding show - Maceo starts with a couple of tunes and then turns the stage over.
RAY CHARLES. GLASGOW. MAY 26, 1999. The Genius of Soul in Ireland. FM Broadcast - sounds great.
CHIC. ESTIVAL JAZZ LUGANO 2012. Hey this is fun, man, this Nile Rodgers is a wonderful talent. Plays and funks up the house. Love it, man!
CHIC & NILE RODGERS. OCTOBER 30, 2017. London. BBC Radio 2 Broadcast of the great hitmaker. Great sound and he's truly a lot of fun. He's a cool guy and had a hand in a lot of enjoyable music over the years.
ERIC CLAPTON. JOIN TOGETHER (2) Consists of some great stuff. An August 2, 1974 show with Pete Townsend, an August 4 show with Peter, Moon & Joe Walsh, August 1 with Pete and Keith and then a July 7 show with Freddie King helping out.
ERIC CLAPTON & FRIENDS. HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIC. Lots of friends dropped by the studio to sing a song with Eric, Dylan on 3, Van Morrison, Ron Wood, The Band...
ERIC CLAPTON. THE LEGENDARY L.A. FORUM SHOW. (2) August 14, 1975. Keith Moon, Joe Cocker & Carlos Santana jam on the entire second disc - cool beans!
ERIC CLAPTON. BEETLE-CLASHER (2) February 3, 1989. London. The last time of a multi night stand at the Royal Albert Hall. Mark Knopfler in tow. Soundboard. Thoroughly enjoyable run thru across all eras.
ERIC CLAPTON. COMPLETELY UNPLUGGED (2). All of the performances before editing and remixing, including the producer's instruction to applaud on cue whenever they recognize a song.
ERIC CLAPTON. EC WORKS LIKE A BARBER. (2) November 12, 2006, Osaka, Japan. Clapton, frankly, ain't my poster child but certainly you gotta respect the dude. He's got chops and while usually his singing leaves me cold, he's either gotten a little better or maybe I've finally warming to it. Appreciate his set choices of "Cocaine" and "Motherless Child."
ERIC CLAPTON. BUDDY HOLLY TRIBUTE. 2 Straight forward covers "Peggy Sue" and "Maybe Baby."
GENE CLARK & FRIENDS. MAY 15, 1985, Evansville, Indiana. Friends include: Michael Clarke, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, Blondie Chaplin. A bunch of friends hanging out, singing songs together. Nothing better. (Filed in Byrds)
GUY CLARK + VERLON THOMPSON. MARCH 27, 1984. Live Oak, Florida. Soundboard. Very tasty show from this fine craftsman.
THE CLASH. D.O.A. (2) That's Demos, Outakes, Alternates. Sensational, essential collection of stuff - so many nuggets contained, but a strong case can be made for this outfit in the annals of rock and roll history. The chorus of "1977" - "No Elvis, No Beatles, No Rolling Stones" followed by a couple of demos of "Heartbreak Hotel." Come on, man that is a classic compiler's joke. I get it, do you?
THE CLASH. BUY OR DIE. December 28 +29, 1978. London. Terrific energy and fun. Not a perfect recording but I have found much of the Clash boots to be unacceptable. This one certainly passes the mustard.
THE CLASH FLASH BASTARDS REMASTERED. December 28, 1978. The previous show in better sound, fantastic show from the scorched earth rockers. These gents bring out my inner rocker.
THE CLASH. AGORA BALLROOM LIVE. February 13, 1979. Cleveland, Ohio. Soundboard. Superb stuff, you had to know then that they had so much musicality.
THE CLASH. MARCH 8, 1980 (2) Passaic, New Jersey. It is a soundboard and a nice show with a good setlist And that can be hard to find with this band. But frankly, it is missing that ingredient that I was looking for. No spark.
THE CLASH. LIVE IN AMSTERDAM. Japp Edenhall. MAY 10, 1981. Soundboard. One of my favorite bands and an important one to me from those formative years, but I just don't love them as a live band. Too often, it's just faster versions of their great album tracks.
THE CLASH. CHAOS IN NEW YORK. June 4, 1981. Whisper clean soundboard of one these famed shows.
THE CLASH. JUNE 14, 1981. Bonds International Casino, NYC Soundboard. I worship these guys, but their forte is not their in concert musical interpretations. I like to them of them as the Punk Beatles.
THE CLASH. HONG KONG DOLLAR-INDIAN CENTS. February 25, 1982. 2) A tinny, one dimensional recording, a tuf listen for a great setlist if that helps at all. Not sure they were really ever a musical live band, but a force of nature. Gotta call this one as I see it: a piss poor bootleg.
THE CLASH. LIVE IN LOCHEM. MAY 20, 1982, Lochem, Holland. Enjoyable soundboard from this wondrous 4.
THE CLASH. AUGUST 17, 1982 (2) Akron, Ohio. Soundboard of the legends. They are certainly stretching it out - so much more than the Punk band when the began. Some may say that is not a good thing, I say it does.
THE CLASH. OCTOBER 29, 1982. Los Angeles, California. Not a bad sounding boot and certainly a nice set list. Like the slightly reworked melody to "Casbah."
THE CLASH. TRICK OR TREAT. October 31, 1982 at Bond's in N.Y.C. This audience recording sounds just too tinny for me. Ahh, the only band that matters....
THE CLASH. JAMAICA WORLD FESTIVAL. November 27 1982. Montego Bay, Jamaica. Sensational sounding disc - frankly one of the better Clashboots.
THE CLASH. US FESTIVAL II. May 28, 1983. Nice sounding disc, there's a glitch in the opening track, but don't let that disuade you. This was that rock festival put on by one of the founders of Apple Computer. Should have spent his time licensing that software, Eh?
THE CLASH. APRIL 17, 1984. Providence, Rhode Island. I cuaght this show and remember seeing a guy passed out in front of me for the entire show. His buddy kicking him at the end "Gotta go, man." Anyway, this is a messy taping - kind of works, sort of captures the energy and the music sorta.
THE CLASH. ROCKERS GALORE. Promo disc. You get interview snippets along with live cuts and studio takes. Fun.
THE CLASH. THE RAT PATROL FROM FORT BRAGG. This is the original Mick Jones produced album which became Combat Rock. Sounds to me like a 2nd or 3rd generation copy as the audio quality lacks some definition. There's alot of odd and different stuff here, a great alt take on "Should I Stay" and some jazzy stuff too.
ANDREW 'DICE' CLAY. THE DICEMAN COMETH. This is the audio of the 1995 HBO special, I don't believe it was released as an audio disc hence included here. Hey it makes me laugh, sorry.
DAVID CLAYTON-THOMAS. JULY 14, 2006. Windsor Blues Festival, Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Former Lead singer of Blood, Sweat & Tears - I always dug those guys. An okay taping, the vocals are up front, but the recording could have been a touch sharper.
JIMMY CLIFF. BOSTON '75 October 25, 1975. A big of bland show frankly.
JIMMY CLIFF. BOSTON '76. Nice radio show with 5 Toots & The Metals tracks as a bonus from a year later.
JIMMY CLIFF. SPECIAL 1982. October 9, 1982, Kansas City, Missouri. This is a clean, radio broadcast promoting his recent album, Special. Alot of material unfamiliar to me (you do get the Harder They come stuff), but all sounds good. His vocals weren't so strong, but that's not his strength anyway.
JIMMY CLIFF. ROCKAPALOOZA. JUNE 1, 1984. Audio feed from professional video. Good stuff.
JIMMY CLIFF. WOODSTOCK '94. August 14, 1994. Saugerties, New York. Lots of fun, mon.
JIMMY CLIFF. JAMAICA WORLD FESTIVAL 1992. (2) Superb sounding performance. A bigger and better artist than he is given credit for.
JIMMY CLIFF. June 18, 1999. Maryland State Fairground. Has some nice moments and all of the hits.
JIMMY CLIFF. JULY 12, 2003. Estival Jazz Lugano, Lugano, Switzerland. Superb soundboard music, warm and vibrant. A lovely man.
JIMMY CLIFF. JULY 4, 2008 (2) Lugano, Switzerland. Soundboard. He's special, this is a warm, uplifting and magical performer and performance.
PATSY CLINE. COUNTRY STYLE. 1960. Recorded off a scratchy LP. Terrific radio appearance with the ads. Good fun.
PATSY CLINE. THE CIMMARON BALLROOM. July 29, 1961. Traded to me as a boot though it may be the same as the commercial release. On my list, but can't vouch for any differences.
COCA COLA COMMERCIALS PARTS 1 + 2 (2) A peculiar collection of unreleased, original coca cola jingles by a wide variety of artists: The Seekers, Tom Jones, Marvin Gaye, Lulu, Vanilla Fudge, The 5th Dimension, The Troggs, The Who...you get the idea.
BRUCE COCKBURN. CHRISTMAS PARTY. 1992. Perfect sound including guests: Rob Wasserman, Roseanne Cash & Lou Reed. Bruce is one ernest dude. Some good stuff though there is one long, dreadfully bland spoken word thing - ugh!
JOE COCKER. BBC RADIO SESSIONS 1968. Tight little package of about 37 minutes of 9 songs.
JOE COCKER. JOE COCKER SINGS BOB DYLAN. Nice unsourced disc of 8 covers of our man, Bobby.
JOE COCKER. MAD DOGS. MARCH 27 + MARCH 28, 1970. New York City. (5) Must be three shows worth of stuff, I think a slimmed down version was the official Mad Dogs & Englishmen release. It's really amazing stuff, Leon Russell, Rita Coolidge, Bobby Keyes etc, one of the greatest vibes ever. Really.
JOE COCKER. FILMORE WEST. April 26, 1970, San Fransisco. Nice Mad dogs show from a radio broadcast in Berkely. Great stuff, man.
JOE COCKER. SHUT OUT THE LIGHT. November 14, 1972. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Soundboard. A stunner, this is a beautiful combination of so much. A+
JOE COCKER. AUGUST 1, 1982. Poughkeepsie, New York. Absolutely killer. Great show. Great set choices. It's simply great.
JOE COCKER. DECEMBER 3, 1987. The Ritz, New York City. FM Broadcast. Fine show.
JOE COCKER. AUGUST 20, ,1994. NEW YORK CITY. Nice soundboard, man. Joe was a singular performer from the rock era.
JOE COCKER. NOVEMBER 18, 2012. Cologne, Germany. Radio broadcast. 13 wicked clean songs performed efficiently.
LEONARD COHEN. AUSTIN CITY LIMITS (2). Contains his Halloween/1988 performance and his 1994 appearance on Austin City Limits. He's deep, man.
BOOTSY COLLINS & THE RUBBER BAND. Louisville, Kentucky, 1976. It's the bomb...it's the funk...it's nothing but the funk. Soundboarder with Maceo Parker in band.
PAUL COLLINS. LIVE IN SPAIN 1997. A beautiful, solo acoustic show from the former leader of the "American" Beat. The Beat's first album IS the THE greatest lost treasure of the New Wave of the late 70's. What's not to like about addictive melodies, simple & humorous songs and straight forward production!! What were you listening to, Billy Joel?
CONCERT FOR A LANDMINE FREE WORLD. (2) August 9, 2003. An audience taping with some distance, but you can still feel the warmth. You get: Emmylou Harris, Steve Harris, Joan Baez, Billy Bragg, Chrissie Hynde & Adam Seymour.
RY COODER. COTAIL CABARET (2) March 23, 1987. A poten mix of rock, gospel and virtuosity. Superb recording.
ALICE COOPER. APRIL 22, 1972. Long Island, New York. Fun, but sounds like a mono taping off a radio broadcast. More than acceptible, but rough listening at times.
ALICE COOPER CRESCENT CITY. April 26, 1973 (New Orleans) + May 24, 1973 (Portland) The first half is a better recording but the other is still okay. This is Alice in the big time baby. Kill those fucking hippies.
ALICE COOPER. MINNEAPOLIS 1973. MAY 30, 1973. Minneapolis, Minnesota. A messy recording, but still gets it done somewhat.
ALICE COOPER. JUNE 17, 1975. Los Angeles, California. Radio broadcast. Rock on Alice.
ALICE COOPER. IN SESSION. Various messy outtakes and alt versions from the great Billion Dollar Babies sessions.
ALICE COOPER. THE EL PASO SHOW (2) June 4, 1980 El Paso, Texas. Radio broadcast. This wasn't a greatest hits show, but Alice played a few along his whatever his latest album. A bunch of interview snippets including throughout.
ALICE COOPER. FEBRUARY 19, 1982. Glasgow. I believe that is from the "Flush the Fashion" tour. Nice recording and, you know, fun. Crowd seemed into it.
ALICE COOPER. WHISKEY A GOGO 2011. September 15, 2011. Radio Broadcast. Rob Zombie introduces and Robbie Kreiger joins in a couple. Lots of fun as this was a promotion for Alice's Welcome 2 My Nightmare release. You get a couple of new ones, a couple of covers and a couple from the promoted album. Nice stories and a fun listen. Is Alice holding on to something old and forgotten or just a bar band rocker committed to his craft? Not sure.
JULIAN COPE. JULIAN WIERDS OUT. August 24, 1986. I could have used a tighter sound on this one, but an intriguing performer to say the least.
SHEMEKIA COPELAND. JULY 30, 2011. Lowell, Massachusetts. Radio broadcast of this bluesy, talented spawn.
ELVIS COSTELLO. UNLOVED SONGS. VOL 1 & 2. (2) Enjoyable era spanning collection of stuff. A wish mash. BBC Peel sessions, Studio demos, alt takes, etc.
ELVIS COSTELLO. FLIP CITY DEMOS. This is the band he was a part of before going solo. Some pretty catchy stuff and a a couple of early versions of some things. "Knocking on Heaven's Door" cover.
ELVIS COSTELLO RADIO SPECIALS (2) I am grouping a couple of different radio specials that I got at the same time though they are all separate. There is a long 1995 titled "Overview" disc which is 78 minutes long where Elvis discusses his career up to that point. Fascinating Then there is a show in conjunction with his album done with the Brodsky Quartet. And a third show done with the release of the Brutal Youth album. All quite interesting.
ELVIS COSTELLO. STIFF DEMOS '76/BBC SESSIONS '77. I would still make the argument that his first couple of discs are among the very greatest runs of the genre. Elvis is king. Hey man, you even get a cover of "Knockin' On Heaven's Door."
ELVIS COSTELLO. NOVEMBER 15, 1977 (2) San Franscisco. Both early and late sets - KSAN radio broadcast. Can we say seminal. Can we say rock poetry. Can you say transcendent. Yes we can.
ELVIS COSTELLO. GET EMOTIONAL. October 22, 1977, Leicester, England. Stereo Soundboard. A kick ass and take no prisoners night. Hey Elvis is Elvis.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ATTRACTIONS. November 23, 1977. New Orleans. 9 songs all full of fire.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ATTRACTIONS. DECEMBER 1, 1977. Chicago, Illinois. Energetic, spry, organy, young Elvis - a sweet and fantastic little set.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ATTRACTIONS. DECEMBER 5, 1977. Cleveland, Ohio. A wicked show, well recorded with upfront vocals. A young, dashing Kickin' Elvis certainly one of the best I've heard.
ELVIS COSTELLO. DECEMBER 6, 1977, Marcy, New York. Young Elvis on tour and on the radio once again. Oh the good old days.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ATTRACTIONS. DECEMBER 9, 1977. Boston, Massachusetts. WBCN recording. Elvis conquers America.
ELVIS COSTELLO. JAY'S LONGHORN BALLROOM. February 13, 1978. Minneapolis, MN. Soundboard. Elvis. The Great Material. Magic.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ATTRACTIONS. MAY 5, 1978. Passaic, New Jersey. Soundboard. A rip roaring show.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ATTRACTIONS. JULY 7, 1978. San Francisco, California. Sizzling recording. Nice and balanced, clear and strong. You can hear the musical abilities of the attractions maturing. Example: the fine playing on "Blame It on Cain." Fantastic.
ELVIS COSTELLO. FEBRUARY 14, 1979. Long Beach, CA Great stuff from an artist on fire.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ATTRACTIONS. I STAND ACCUSED. April 12, 1979. A fiery performance with Elvis at his peak. Wasn't he the Brit Dylan or was that Donovan.
ELVIS COSTELLO. "THE HORACE BARLOW EXPERIENCE" FEBRUARY 6, 1980. Liverpool. Elvis opens a show for Rockpile incognito. Fun.
ELVIS COSTELLO. MAY 14, 1980. London, England. A BBC broadcast. Nice show just love the Tempts' cover of "Don't Look Back." I guess it's not written by Mick Jagger & Peter Tosh. Anyway, this is fun stuff.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ATTRACTION. HEATWAVE FESTIVAL. Snappy performance of 23 slammn' tunes - all good. Who else was at this festival? The Clash, Blondie, The B-52s, The Pretenders, Rockpile, Talking Heads...what an incredible line up. Them's the good days. I feel sorry for today's kids - they've got nothing!!!!
ELVIS COSTELLO. EVERY DAY I WRITE THE BOOK. Good, but not nearly as spectacular as the previous show.
ELVIS COSTELLO ARMED FORCES/1978-1983 LIVE. Live compilation following the order of EC's mighty third.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ATTRACTIONS. THE GANGSTER IS BACK. AUGUST 7,1983. Could also include August 1984 material. Regardless this is a fantastic radio broadcast. sounds like it was spliced together from multiple sources. Supposed to be one of the best EC boots from those in the know.
ELVIS OSTELLO & THE ATTRACTIONS. RIOT ACT. OCTOBER 17, 1983, London. Elvis brings it, along with a horn section, just a fabulous musical performance. Sound boarder.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE ATTRACTION. NOVEMBER 23, 1986 (2) London. A saw this tour when it came through Boston and hated the show and kind floated away from Elvis for year because of it. Listening to the show gave me a change to reconsider. The band plays great and Elvis is fine voice - but oh god, the setlist is poorly compiled and there's too much midling material.
ELVIS COSTELLO & FRIENDS. APRIL 24, 1989 (2), Sweetwater, Mill Valley, California. This is an amazing boot - in fact - if you had to make a case for Bootlegging this would be a perfect example. The event itself is some kind of cool record store anniversary part. Elvis plays a great acoustic set and then the guests follow: Jerry Garcia, Jerry Schiff, James Burton, Commander Cody, Sammy Hagar - yikes. Anyway, there is some great music and some real fun. And oh yeah, it's a soundboard.
ELVIS COSTELLO SOLO. JULY 11, 1989. Montreux Jazz Festival. Fun stuff. Excellent sound and performance.
ELVIS COSTELLO AND THE RUDE FIVE. MAY 1991 TOUR REHEARSALS. They sound pretty tight with Marc Ribot in tow. A run threw of 20 songs - great sounding.
ELVIS COSTELLO. PLUGGELECTRIC. Split disc, half from the 1991's MTV Unplugged Performance and the other an electric set from Glasgow in 1994. His aim is true.
ELVIS COSTELLO. RIOT ACT. October 17, 1993. London, England. Must be the Punch of Clock era tour as we get a couple from that album, a favorite of mine. Includes a cover of Backstabbers (From 1983) as well. Well recorded and great singing all nite.
ELVIS COSTELLO JUNE 8, 1994. New York City, New York. A fine recording only betrayed by a some setlist choices and a few missed rearrangements. With that said, there is some fantastic stuff here just uneven.
ELVIS COSTELLO. JUNE 27, 1994 (2) Paris, France. Superb soundboard.
ELVIS COSTELLO. LIKE BUDDY HOLLY ON ACID. July 19, 1994 (2) Rome, Italy. Excellent soundboard.
ELVIS COSTELLO SEPTEMBER 22, 1994 (2) Tokyo, Japan. Fantastic recording and performance.
ELVIS COSTELL0 & THE ATTRACTIONS. MAY 17, 1995 (2). London. With Marc Ribot & James Burton. Fab night. Soundboard.
ELVIS COSTELLO. MAY 15, 1996. (2) San Francisco, CA. KFAN radio broadcast. I seem to be missing 2 or 3 tracks, so what, this is a great show.
ELVIS COSTELLO. I DID TALK TO BOB DYLAN. 1996. This is acoustic Elvis that's a bit same sounding song to song. Nice recording.
ELVIS COSTELLO. VHI STORYTELLERS. Broadcast on June 16, 1996. Stories and songs from the witty one.
ELVIS COSTELLO. February 19, 1999 (2) With Steve Nieve on Keyboards. Commercial sound. First the bad: Those Bachrach songs are truly a dreaful bore. The Good: the Elvis songs that I know and love performed in outstanding arragements with real spirit and charm. I guess I could turn this into an amazing one discer.
ELVIS COSTELLO. JUNE 16, 1999 (2) Toronto, Canada. Again with Nieve on Keyboards. Terrifically entertaining show with "Radio Sweetheart" turned into a great audience singalong. Perfect sound.
ELVIS COSTELLO. EPISODES OF ELVIS (2). April 16, 2002 in London. Bonus Tracks include his part from the Landmine Free World Concert in 2002 and then the "Crossroads" appearance with Lucinda Williams.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS. SEPTEMBER 15, 2002 (2) Brussels, Belgium. 11 tunes in glorious soundboard.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS. NOVEMBER 3, 2002 (2) Clearwater, Florida. Sweet soundboard from the creative Declan. Delightful.
ELVIS COSTELL0 & ALLEN TOUSSAINT. July 5, 2006, Hyannis, Massachusetts. Start with the premise: the most inspired pairing in many a moon. Secondly, their commercial album is the year's best offering. Period. This is a good recording, very enjoyable night. I caught the show a week later in Boston, it was fantastic!!
ELVIS COSTELLO. THE FIRST TEN YEARS. PODCAST SERIES (2) Elvis interview - lots of good anecdotes and observations.
ELVIS COSTELLO. SEPTEMBER 30, 2007. Bridgeport, Connecticut. Openng set for Bob Dylan - alone and acoustic and just on fire. Well captured by the taping there's just a little distance in the sound. These were amazing performances - inspired.
ELVIS COSTELLO & CLOVER. MY AIM IS TRUER. (2) November 8, 2007. Decent audience tapng of this reunion show performing the first album in its entirity and then doing other stuff.
ELVIS COSTELLO. WFUV. June 2, 2009. In studio interview and performances promoting the "Secret, Profane" record. Good stuff.
ELVIS COSTELLO AND THE SUGARCANES. June 16, 2009, (3) Ryman Auditorium, Nashville, Tennessee. Long, generous and fantastic show. It's an acceptable audience taping, god, I wish we had a more perfect recording. Magical.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE SUGARCANES. August 21, 2009 (2) Santa Rosa, California. A nice balanced audience taping of an inspired tour (and album) superbly executed.
ELVIS COSTELLO. JULY 31, 2011. Newport, RI. Newport Folk Festival. Masterful performance with help from Emmylou, Secret Sisters and Chris Thile. Perfect sound, wondrous performance.
ELVIS COSTELLO & THE IMPOSTERS. GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL 2013 (2) June 29, 2013. Audio feed from TV Broadcast of this Anti-Semite. Somehow I can still enjoy the music.
ELVIS COSTELL & THE ROOTS. September 16, 2013. Brooklyn, New York. Nice sounding boot, funky stuff.
ELVIS COSTELLO. NOVEMBER 23, 2013 (2) Morristown, New Jersey. Solo show with some great moments but also some sameness. Pretty good audience taping.
ELVIS COSTELLO. MARCH 12, 2015 (2) New Orleans, Louisanna. Very good Elvis solo tour, entertaining and fun. Too bad he doesn't like Jews.
THE COWBOY JUNKIES. FEBRUARY 23, 2008. Massey Hall, Toronto, Canada. It's the 20th anniversary of their debut and they reimagine it for a radio broadcast. Beautiful.
ROBERT CRAY. JANUARY 21, 1987, Dallas, Texas. With Special Guest Stevie Ray Vaughan. Terrific radio broadcast of this talented, under heralded bluesman man.

CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL. JULY 4, 1971. Night 5 of the Closing of the Fillmore West Week. Closing night. Pretty good recording and the feisty band is in good form. Historic night for those that care.
MARSHALL CRENSHAW & FRIENDS. IDIOT'S DELIGHT RENT PARTY. (2) November 22, 1992. WXRK studios, New York. Backed by much of the E Street Band - Max, Danny, Clarence & Talent - as well as Joey Ramon, Jules Shear, Don Dixon and others. This was a radio fundraiser with pledges making song requests and the motley crew of a band punching the song out. Lots of fun and a wild list of songs - everything from the Beatles and Stones to Somewhere over the Rainbow.
THE CRICKETS. AUGUST 15, 2009 Green Bay, Wisconsin. Hey not bad, I think it's a corporate gig for Briggs & Stratton as the CEO sits in with the band at some point. There was more to this band that Buddy Holly...really.
JIM CROCE. PHILADELPHIA 1967 & CLEVELAND 1972 (2) Two terrific discs, the first an early, early radio show fand then a very good soundboard from Cleveland. Excellent stuff here.
JIM CROCE. LIVE AT HARPER COLEGE. February 2, 1973. Nice crisp soundboarder from this gruff, working class folkie with a heart of gold. Stories, mirth and music from this singer/songwriter.
JIM CROCE. GLASSBORO STATE COLLEGE 1973. Jim tells alot of stories over the course of the night. Commerical soundboard sound quality. Alot of fun, though sad to think he died so young.
JIM CROCE & MAURY MUEHLEISEN. JULY 7, 1973. Amsterdam, Holland. Another great soundboard show from our lost folk hero. Nice to show on the art his musical partner who went down in the plane with him.
JIM CROCE. AUGUST 25, 1973. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Too much he's no longer with us, but he was a lot of fun.
DAVID CROSBY & GRAHAM NASH. WHALE AND FIELDWORKERS BENEFIT. December 14, 1974, San Francisco, California. High quality recording, just a bit dull when they're not playing the hits.
DAVID CROSBY & GRAHAM NASH. JANUARY 17, 1992. Melbourne, Florida. Soundboard. Great music, but utterly annoying chatter. Hey, Dave shut the fuck up and sing.
CROSBY, NASH & YOUNG. WATER BROTHERS. March 28, 1973. San Francisco. No Stills. Soundboard, some kind of political benefit. Pretty good show I'd say.
CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG. JUNE 4, 1970. New York City. Can someone tell me why the Filmore East is gone. Anyway, an enjoyable show in superb sound. I still love so many of these songs.

CROSBY, STILL & NASH. THE SANTA CRUZ EARTHQUAKE BENEFIT (2) November 8, 1989. Radio broadcast and a very nice recording. Crosby can get a bit annoying, but still the harmonies shine thru. Quite mellow, mellow, very very mellow.
CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG. LONG TIME GONE (2) June 3, 1970, Lakenhurst, New Jersey. Stills guitar playing seemed a little stilted that night, but those harmonies are magical. Nice recording - I think the Young & Stills stuff sounds the best. Lots and Lots of stage chat, you can see the seeds of that 4 way street.
CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG. TRIBUTE TO NEIL YOUNG (2) Contains the same June 3, 1970 show, but also a number of additional tracks -a bunch of Neil stuff and Buffalo Springfield. Loved.
CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG. (3) February 1, 2000. Tacoma, Washington. Very good audience recording captures an appreciate and enthusiastic audience digging the reunion. Each disc has its own amatuer artwork.
CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG (3) April 14, 2002. Tampa, Florida. Soundboard. They are so very important, just ask them.
SHERYL CROW. UNRELEASED FIRST ALBUM. Not too shabby effort, apparently abandoned.
SHERYL CROW. HIDDEN TREASURES. Collection of B Sides etc. Great stuff, artwork does exactly match up to the music on the disc.
SHERYL CROW. VH-1 STORYTELLERS & UNPLUGGED. Good clean copy with some nice anecdotes and pretty good performances.
SHERYL CROW TRINITY CHURCH SESSIONS. November 3, 1998. A wonderous acoustic performance in commercial sound quality.
SHERYL CROW. LET ME PUT MY LOVE INTO YOU GO DOWN. 1999. Nice little live show with a couple of studio outtakes as bonus. I dig her.
SHERYL CROW. THE BIG FOUR - OH. February 11, 2002. Los Angeles, California. It's a birthday bash with lots of friends stopping by, but unfortunately a sub par taping doesn't capture the magic. You get: Bonnie Raitt, Dwight Yoakum, Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Henley (ugh).
SHERYL CROW. LET FREEDOM SING. July 4, 2016 Nashville, Tennessee. Nice soundboard as the well preserved Sheryl got invited to celebrate Independence day. Sings most of her hits. Holds up.
HAPPY SNOW VALENTINE. Winter Olympic Game Concert. February 14, 2002. This is a fun one. First off, in the middle of the show they are broadcast on Jay Leno. Finish the gig with a great Zepplin cover of "Good Times, Bad Times." Right after the riff, she let's out a wonderful cackle.
SHERYL CROW. JUNE 11, 2008 (2) Los Angeles. The bad: It's a flat seemingly mono recording. The good: My ears adjusted quickly and she's quite personable and even funny. A great set of tunes too.
SHERYL CROW. THE CROW COMES ALIVE. July 20, 2013. Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Nice show sourced from the IEM Audience Matrix.
SHERYL CROW. MILWAUKEE 2017. JULY 9, 2017. Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Soundboard. Her set from the Outlaw Music Festival with Willie and others. Great stuff. Chick is cool.
CULTURE CLUB. MALIBU BEACH CLUB. Radio Broadcast. Boy George really had a sweet voice and, you know, they made sweet dance pop in their day. It was fun stuff.
THE CURE. DRESSING UP FOR A DAY OUT. July 26, 1995. Glastonbury. Great soundboard. Enjoyed it quite a bit and reminded me why I dig these dudes.
RICK DANKO. DECEMBER 20, 1977. New York City. King Biscuit Flower Hour. Okay sound quality, these radio shows you always expect a little better. Still nice.
RICK DANKO BAND. MARCH 1, 1978. Los Angeles. A sloppy, drunken night. Rick was a scooch off his game as he was bombed. Long delay at the end as Rick called for Levon, Garth, Richard and Robbie to join him up on stage. They all did, but Robbie even though we waited and waited. Memo to Rick: Robbie is a dick. Anyway, soundboard recording.
RICK DANKO. DECEMBER 9, 1989. Chicago, Illinois. Soundboard. Great show, what a passionate and talented musician.
RICK DANKO, PAUL BUTTERFIELD & BLONDIE CHAPMAN. DECEMBER 13, 1979. Boulder, CO. At first, I thought oh oh, not a good recording, but oh man did it grow on me. Outstanding real music, the blues always sound good. You can't fight the feeling.
RICK DANKO & LEVON HELM. JANUARY 28, 1983. Portland, Oregon. Fabulous show and sounds absolutely terrific.
RICK DANKO & LEVON HELM. JANUARY 29, 1983 Eugene, Oregon. Superb sounding show. Love ti.
RICK DANKO, RICHARD MANUAL + PAUL BUTTERFIELD. SEPTEMBER 9, 1984 (2) Lone Star Cafe, New York City. It's the reason why I collect bootlegs. A performance of such emotion and heart that blew my socks off. I have become absolutely smitten by the passion that Danko brings to the table. The chemistry and musicianship of the three of these guys is nothing short of what music is supposed to be about. Magic.
RICK DANKO, RICHARD MANUAL + GARTH HUDSON. JANUARY 2, 1985 (Late) and JANUARY 6, 1985 (Late) Lone Star Cafe, New York City. (2) Terrific twin shows with very different setlists in soundboard recordings. Love.
RICK DANKO. MARCH 25, 1989. Extra-ordinary performance. This is Rick's opening set for Jorma - soundboard. Just Rick and guitar and love.
RICK DANKO. OCTOBER 8, 1999. Massapequa, New York. A sweet sounding sound board, a musical treat.
RICK DANKO, GREGG ALLMAN & FRIENDS. JUNE 1, 1991. New York City. Lots of great music in this soundboard.
RICK DANKO. BBC RADIO 1. April 7, 1993. London, England. Nice radio interview with a couple of songs. You get a couple of questions about Bob Dylan. Rick was a nice sweet guy.
RICK DANKO & FRIENDS. JUNE 29, 1995 (Early & Late Shows) (2) New York. Great, warm soundboard. Excellent music.
RICK DANKO. THE LAST PERFORMANCE. Radio Woodstock. December 6, 1999. As the title says, this is the near the end for this amazing, passionate performer. He is 100% heart.
RODNEY DANGERFIELD. MARCH 10, 1984 (early show), Washington, DC. Lots of fun, I love those old comics from another era and another time stuffing more jokes per minute that you can count.
DAPTONE SUPER SOUL REVIEW (2) July 2, 2014 An old fashion soul review updated and modeled from those old Stax or Motown shows with the Daptone roster performing: Antibalis, Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley etc. This is a radio broadcast so it's great sound - love it!
TERRANCE TRENT D'ARBY. DECEMBER 4, 1987. London. BBC Radio broadcast. This is ball of energy is one wheel on fire. Terrific 1 hour show. Good stuff in perfect sound.
TERRENCE TRENT D'ARBY. LOVE, PEACE & TOLERANCE. November 5, 1993, Oslo. Not sure where and how the wheels came off of his career. Perhaps it was the shit 2nd album. He is an immensely talented artist and this show is an A+ perfomance - closes with an awesome cover of "Jumpin' Jack Flash." Give Terence a chance.
RAY DAVIES. SOLD ON SONG. BBC RADIO. April 1, 2006. London, England. Wonderous radio show with great song and stories. Superb.
RAY DAVIES. APRIL 5, 2008 (2) Upper Darby, Pennsylania. Pretty fair recording, not perfect but the show shines through. On the road, playing those great songs. Ray is a top flight front man and singe a 5 star artist.
REV. GARY DAVIS. STUDIO OUTTAKES. 1965-1990(?). The great bluesman, best known as the writer of "Cocaine" - not performed here BTW. These are excellent studio performances on 2 big files.
RAY DAVIES. DECEMBER 3, 2008 (2) Nashville, Tennessee. A relaxed Ray, largely along regalling the audience with song & story. Alot of fun. He's alot of fun.
THE DEL FUEGOS. THE LYON TAPES. Great show from this gem of a band from Boston. Oh Bar band rock, bring ye back.
DESMOND DEKKER. FEBRUARY 18, 1996, San Francisco, California. Joyous radio broadcast -- ooh man, do I love that ska reggae sound. This is happiness personified!
DELANEY and BONNIE & FRIENDS. A&R RECORDING STUDIO. July 22, 1971. WPLJ radio broadcast, friends include King Curtis & Duanne Allman. Good stuff.
DELANEY & BONNIE & FRIENDS. FAR FROM THE MADDENING CROWD. December 10, 1969. Eric & George in the BBand. Soundboard. What more do you need too say.
IRIS DEMENT. HONEST BITTERSWEET REFLECTIONS. September 13, 1994. Austin, Texas. Radio broadcast. I like her and think I should like her more than I do. Maybe l will.
DEPECHE MODE. ALMOST ACOUSTIC. I traded for this because one of my clients is a big fan. Decent enough sound quality - though I expected better from a radio broadcast. December/1999 in L.A.
DEPECHE MODE. MAY 6, 2009 Luxemborg. Decent audience taping, feels a bit dark and mordant, but I guess it is supposed to. I try to listen to music that I enjoy.
DEREK & THE DOMINO. FILMORE EAST. October 23, 1970. Extraodinary performance from Clapton with all of his Guitar God powers intact. Sensational sound and performance - I believe this has been subsequently released commercially..
DEREK & THE DOMINOES. DEREK IS ERIC. Studio outtakes from 1970 when Clapton was God, drugs were good and Nixon was President.
THE DEVIL MAKES THREE. APRIL 12, 2014. Driftwood, Texas. Love these folks who combine country, bluegrass, banjo, rock and blues into their own concoction. One file.
MINK DEVILLE. DESPERATE DAYS. September 3, 1988, Switzerland. Mink offers a powerful concoction of doo wop, soul and R&B. A stylish offering off the soundboard no doubt.
DEVO. INNOCENT SPUDS. San Francisco, CA 1977. I don't know, but I enjoy these art/punk wonder from Akron Ohio. Formed at the post Kent State shooting, they always mad me smile and tap my foot. What's wrong with that?
DEVO. FUTURE OF ROCK OR TOTAL CROCK? December, 1978 (Chicago) and December 7, 1980 (New York) Two soundboard recordings from a band that everyone hates but me. Snappy tunes with a sense of humor, what don't you get????
DEVO. JULY 17, 1980. Boston. WBCN Radio broadcast. Holy shit, I was at this show, way up in the balcony boiling. Lots of fun, man.
DEVO. AUGUST 11, 2008. Tokyo, Japan. There's something Spinal tap'ish about Devo performing in Japan. Anway, they are my favorite New Wave quilty pleasure. Catchy tunes, strange hats - what fun!
ANI DIFRANCO. NOVEMBER 2, 1992. Hampshire College. Nice sounding disc from one rebellious babe.
ANI DIFRANCO. July 14, 1996. River Days Festival, Renton, Washington. Soundboard boot with one track damage. Nice performance though self indulgent does come to mind.
ANI DIFRANCO. MARCH 8, 1998. The Port Fairy Folk Festival, Australia. Radio broadcast from the world's fifth largest music festival? Really now. Does a little rap on how she worships at the alter of Joni not Bob. What she really does is talk talk talk.
DIRE STRAITS. JANUARY 30, 1979, Leeds, UK. Superb soundboard - wow - amazing stuff. Dig the rarely played "Real Girl" that had me scrambling to track it down.
DIRE STRAITS. February 16, 1979. Cologne, Germany, Rockpalast. Perfect soundboard quality.
DIRE STRAITS. BEFORE WE BECAME FAMOUS. 1979. 10 Songs nicely performed from their first tour.
DIRE STRAITS. JULY 5, 1981. Brussels, Belgium. Soundboard from the band people seem to love to hate.
DIRE STRAITS. JULY 10, 1985 (2) Wembley Stadium, London. Soundboard. They were quite commercial weren't they. Maybe Rock's most successful quirks.
DIRE STRAITS. HAMBURG 1992. July 15, 1992. Hamburg, Germany. Soundboard. Boy the man can play.
DIXIE CHICKS. RARITIES. No source info or artwork. Collection of B sides, live tracks and pirated one offs from soundtracks.

DIXIE CHICKS. AUSTIN CITY LIMITS. AUGUST 15, 2000. Excellent!
DIXE CHICKS. JUNE 6, 1999. London, England. Talk about real girl power. From a BBC radio, a swingin' take of "There's Your Trouble" among its treasures. These chicks get better and better.
DIXIE CHICKS. NOVEMBER 12, 2000 (2) Chicago. A B minus audience recording of this Chicks tour. Wish I could have seen the funny slides that had the audience in stitches. Unfortunately the recording is just not up to the task.
DIXIE CHICKS. CMT CROSSROADS. July 31, 2002. This is really a duel show with James Taylor. TV show so it has commercial sound, JT does DC songs, the girls do JT songs, chat, interviews, mutual admiration etc. Also includes a Taylor performance on Letterman. Good stuff. No art or setlist.
THE DIXIE CHICKS. DECEMBER 5, 2006. (2) Dallas, Texas. Imperfect recording, a bit hollow, distant, yet instruments and voices are clear. Last show of the tour. Ever?
FATS DOMINO. JUNE 13, 1975 (2) New York City. Early and Late shows. Soundboards. Legend.
FATS DOMINO WITH DAVE BARTHOLOMEW. APRIL 25, 1999. New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Fantastic soundboard from a wonderful and under appreciated artist. I once said hello to him while visiting the amazing city (he was a friend of the Taxi Driver taking me home, we called on the phone).
FATS DOMINO. JULY 15, 1980. Pistoia, Italy. Soundboard from a great legend whom should be mentioned in the same breath as the other foundational artists of the genre. Full blooded show with band. Great stuff, man.
DONOVAN. COSMIC WHEELS TOUR. Brussells 1973. Solo acoustic tour in soundboard. No artist tightrope walks between stupidity and brilliance more frequently. Somehow it works on Hurdy Gurdy Man, but is oh so painful on Celia the Seals - a song about clubbing seals to death. Oh my.
DONOVAN. THE BOTTOM LINE 1976. April 10, 1976, New York City. (2) Radio broadcast. Look I did the guy and love alot of his music. He is a sincere hippy. Lots of great stuff and one or two misteps, Contains his worst song ever - "I Love My Shirt" Oh god, its embarassing. But I don't want to focus on the negative, it's a great show.
DONOVAN. JUNE 19, 1985 (2) Houston, Texas. Soundboard. I dig him, but half the time I am digging and the other half I am cringing.
THE DOORS. STUDIO OUTTAKES. Elektra Sound Recorders, Hollywood. Odd and unsatisfying studio outtakes mostly from Morrison Hotel.
THE DOORS. STUDIO DAZE. Odds and sods from this legendary band.
THE DOORS. THE ROCK IS DEAD SESSIONS. February 25, 1969. Studio outtakes. et al.
THE DOORS. APOCOLYPSE NOW. From their 1968 Waiting for the Sun Tour. Nice live show featuring the Lizard King and his lounge bandmates.
MARCH 10, 1967. The Matrix, San Francisco. Good weird shit from these dark LA rockers.
THE DOORS. March 18, 1967. Detroit, Michigan. Damn good soundboard.
THE DOORS. SUMMER'S ALMOST GONE. 10 Cuts from a 1967 San Francisco show with 8 additional tracks from other shows. Plenty of fun to be had. Setlist only.
THE DOORS. THE COMPLETE STOCKHOLM 68 TAPES (2) Stockholm, Sweden. Soundboard. At times, I cracked a smile and enjoyed the groove, at other times I was bored silly by their twaddle and aimless wondering.
THE MIAMI INCIDENT. MARCH 1, 1969. Miami, Florida. First of all, this is not music for the ears. The recording is a low level audience taping obviously reworked as best as possible. You do get a clear upfront vocal, but the band is just sort of plunking in the background. But it just doesnt matter because it's pretty fascinating. Morrison is a wild man, raving, ranting and slurring his way through exulting the crowd to have fun, be free and do anything. It's an incredible listen as who really wants to listen to the music anyway.
THE DOORS. LIVE IN DETROIT. (2) May 8, 1970. Further evidence of a band that got it - what it means to stage a rock and roll concert -- Loud, nervey & Free.
THE DOORS. JUNE 6, 1970 (2) Seattle, Washington. Sorry, but I find these guys quite interesting live. Morrison's performances are manic & entrancing. This night he was drunk, the band was sloppy, but still fun to hear. Soundboard.
THE DOORS. OBJECTS OF DESIRE. Studio outtakes, alternatives, and various odds + ends. You get a couple of early Ray material along with assortment of stuff. Sound quality varies. No artwork, just source info.
DR. JOHN. SUCH A FUNKY NIGHT. Ultrasonic Sudioes, Hemptead, New York. November 6, 1973. Terrific funky show, the man has "it."
DR. JOHN. NEW YORK 1987 (3) November 7, 1987, New York City. Super soundboard recording of the good Doctor in the house in full power. Even Mick Taylor steps in for some fantastic solos on "Wang Dang Doodle." Essential boot.
DR. JOHN. JUNE 3, 2008. Telluride, Colorado. 1st tune of the night gets slipped, but it's a fine radio broadcast from the good Doctor. Meaty, biggy & Bouncy.
DR. JOHN AND THE LOWER THIRD. NOVEMBER 14, 2008 (2) Hamburg, Germany. Pretty good recording. Overlook it's flaws and enjoy the vibe.
DR. JOHN. GERMANY 2014. November 7, 2014. Ingolstatdt, Germany. Radio broadcast of the good Doctor. This is such great stuff, joyous music.
IAN DURY & THE BLOCKHEADS. AUGUST 8, 1979, London. Good fun from a man whose poster was in my room during high school.
IAN DURY & THE BLOCKHEADS. JANUARY 20, 1981. London, England. Cheeky fun radio broadcast, theatrical new wave both clever and rhythmic.
JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE. JANUARY 19 2011 (2) Brighton, England. Soundboard. This kid is quite something. Lots of anecdotes so he clearly needs to work out his substance abuse and lady problems, but he is one hell of a blues singer, songwriter and guitar player. Steve's kid and he's gonna have a great future as long as he can keep it together.
JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE. MARCH 29, 2012 (2) Bloomington, Illinois. Just like this kid, performing with band this time, he is a chip off the old block. Steeped in the right traditions, he's a keeper.
STEVE EARLE. MEXICAN DEMOS (2) The are purported to be pre - signed demos. Certainly interesting stuff.
STEVE EARLE & TOWNES VAN ZANDT. TOGETHER LIVE AT THE BLUEBIRD CAFE. September 13, 1995. Two Texas cowboys singing for their supper. Soundboard.
STEVE EARLE. HEAVY METAL BULE GRASS (Undrugged in Bern) November 16, 1997 (2) Bern, Switzerland. Superb soundboard, full of great music and some odd stories.
STEVE EARLE & THE DEL MCCOURY BAND. MAY 11, 1999. (2) Malmo, Sweden. Simply a killer. Crisp sound, as Earle goes bluegrass - music, man.
STEVE EARLE. October 29, 1999 (2) Chiari, Italy. Solo acoustic soundboarder. Great stuff.
STEVE EARLE. March 30, 2002. Australia. An immense solo performance taped off a radio broadcast. A+ wiht a few minor digital glitches. Do you realize he's been married 6 times!
STEVE EARLE. THE REVOLUTION STARTS NOW TALK SHOW PROMO. Handed to me when I attended a show in March of 2005. It's a half hour excerpt from his radio show in Mono?? featured Jonathan Demme chatting and bringing in a couple of records to play. Thought I'd throw it on my list.
STEVE EARLE. FEBRUARY 18, 2008 (2) London, England. Decent enough audience tapng - it the folkie, bearded Steve with his stunningly beautiful wife Allison Moorer in tow. Enjoyable night of music - highlight: "Satellite Radio."
STEVE EARLE. AUGUST 2, 2008. Newport Folk Festival, Newport Rhode Island. NPR prodcast. Great stuff. He's fat and happy now.
STEVE EARLE. BERLIN 2013. February 6, 2013. Live radio show from Germany as he is premiering some of his new songs and a couple of classics before he signs off. Don't think Walmart will be stocking this one.
STEVE EARLE & THE DUKES. February 25, 2015 WFUV radio show, Steve plays his new blues records at Electric Lady studio in NYC. Damn, it's a fine record.
STEVE EARLE & THE DUKES. November 6, 2015. Weekender Festival, Wangels, Germany. Sweet sounding soundboard from his Blues tour. Great stuff, man.
STEVE EARLE & SHAWN COLVIN. June 13, 2016 (2) London. Imperfect taping, but sometimes you gotta take what you can get.
STEVE EARLE, PATTY GRIFFIN, EMMYLOU HARRIS, BUDDY MILLER & LUCINDA WILLIAMS. OCTOBER 8, 2017. Lampdusa Festival. Great little fundraising, consciousness raisting tour. Soundboard.
STEVE EARLE & THE DUKES. JULY 5, 2018 (2) Rudolstadt Festival, Germany. He is not capable of writing a bad album or doing a bad show (these days). Excellent Radio broadcast.
DAVE EDMUND'S ROCK & ROLL REVUE. April 6, 1990. Whisper clean soundboard featuring sets by Graham Parker, Kim Wilson (Fab Thunderbirds), Dion and Dave, of course. This is a 5 star show - outstanding and essential.
DAVE EDMUNDS. OCTOBER 23, 1994. San Francisco, CA. This is a KFOG radio broadcast, the spirit of Chuck Berry and Bri Pub Rock lives and there is nothing wrong with that. Excellent stuff from this fine underrated artist.
THE (ENGLISH) BEAT. AMSTERDAM 1980. Nice little soundboarder from a better than good band. Love the ska fused beats and strong vocals. A little prize.
THE ENGLISH BEAT. OCTOBER 3, 1982. London. BBC Broadcast. Oh so fun. Happy music.
THE ENGLISH BEAT. KEXP LIVE PERFORMANCE PODCAST. MARCH 8, 2007. A fabulous in studio performance + interview. In fact, a smokin' performance - great energy and panache.
BRIAN ENO/DAVID BRYNE. PRE-RELEASE GHOSTS. These are alt takes of their Ghosts in the Machine collaboration. Ambient and dull like the official release.
EURYTHMICS. JULY 7, 1987 (2) Berlin, Germany. Superb soundboard performance of probably my favorite 80's band. Cut away all the synth, videos and surface and you end up with really enjoyable rock songs. Annie Lennox is/was a great frontwoman with a killer voice and she's beautiful.
EURYTHMICS. ACOUSTIC SAMPLER. Berlin, 1989. This is a 3 song Arista promo of the Dave & Annie with guitar doing stuff from the We Too Are One album. Quite good.
THE EURYTHMICS. DECEMBER 3, 1999. London. Radio broadcast. Excellent performance of all the hits and then some. I thought they had made the transition from synth to rock band, but sadly they didn't soldier on. One of the better 90's bands, really.
EURYTHMICS. GREATEST HITS LIVE. Sydney, Australia. Has that radio broadcast sound quality, only 10 tracks so it may be the Greatest HIts live, but it ain't all the greatest hits live.
THE FACES. IN CONCERT 1973. (2) February 8, 1973 & April 1, 1973, London. Hey man, these skinny Brits are the real deal. Coulda Shoulda been the Stones, but alas this was not their fate. These are imperfect radio broadcasts capturing the 5 between pubs. If you don't like it, you can't be my friend.
THE FACES. AUGUST 8, 1974. Detroit, Michigan. Great stuff and I'm happy to collect this might forgotten band.
THE FACES. MARCH 7, 1975. San Bernadino. Just 11 songs, but they are 11 good ones in crystal clear quality.
THE FACES. RHYTHM & BOOZE. 1986, San Bernadino, California. More great stuff. Superb.
THE FACES. COAST TO COAST OUTTAKES. Poorly titled as these are live cuts from a late era tour. Sounds damn cool to these ears.
FAIRPORT CONVENTION. PERFORM LIEGE & LIEF. AUGUST 10, 2007. BBC Radio broadcast. One of those let's reunite and do a signature album in it's entirity things. Well played and recorded along with band interviews to follow. Great fiddle and power from the great Brit Folk Band.
MARIANNE FAITHFUL. JULY 5, 1997. Montreal, Canada. Montreal Jazz Festival. I think a good quality Radio Broadcast of her Brecht stuff "20th Century Blues."
MARIANNE FAITHFUL. NOVEMBER 14, 1999. (2) De Vooruit Gent, Belgium. My kind of audience taping, warm and rich. Great stories + songs well performed.
MARIANNE FAITHFUL. (2) MARCH 29, 2007. Lavaux, Switzerland. Nice job, Marianne. Always more than Mick's ex.
MARIANNE FAITHFUL. LE PONT DES ARTISTES. January 25, 2011 (2) Paris. This is a French radio interview along with musical performances.
MARIANNE FAITHFUL. PORTO ANTICO DE GENEVA. July 26, 2011. Geneva, Italy. Superb soundboard show, featuring a old and new songs. Like the cover of The Decembrists' "Crane Wife."
MARIANNE FAITHFUL. NOVEMBER 15, 2014 and APRIL 9, 1990 (2) Munich, Germany and New Orleans. Two outstanding radio shows. With her deep, smoker voice, she's a wondrous piece of fabric in the blanket of 50 years of rock music.
THE FELICE BROTHERS. NOVEMBER 30, 2007 (2) London. Wowee. What a great frisky show. "Helen Fry" is like a neutron bomb only he building didn't stand either.
THE FELICE BROTHERS. MAY 1, 2009 (2) Knoxville, Tennessee. A superb and spirited night. Terrific sound and grit.
THE FELICE BROTHERS. MAY 23, 2009 (2) Richmond, Virginia. This joyous bunch have plenty of magic tricks up their sleeves. It can an Irish jig, a quixotic ancient folk tune or just simply a sublime whisky sing along.
THE FELICE BROTHERS. MAY 26, 2009 (2) Johnson City, Tennessee. Superb show --- a great recording. You get Ian's twisted vocals right up in the mix and it's just fanastic. Gil Landry from Old Crow stops by for a couple too. A quixotic band a great combination of old time sounds, new time lyrics and old school smarts.
THE FELICE BROTHERS. LEBOWSKI FEST. (2) July 16, 2010. Louisville, Kentucky. A pre film show celebrating the mighty Coen Brothers classic. Decent taping with upfront vocals, but less than perfect recording.
THE FELICE BROTHERS. MAY 3, 2011 (2) Denver, Colorado. Acceptable, but not great recording. A Good but not great show, but they do play most of my favorite songs.
THE FELICE BROTHERS. OCTOBER 31, 2011 (2) Bloomington, Illinois. Soundboard. I love these guys, but frankly the first half of the show is a tad somber for these ears. I prefer their country infused Dylanology. Anyway, I haven't been able to secure any other boots of these guys so you got to take them when you can.
BRYAN FERRY. JUNE 4, 2002. Belfast, Ireland. Swiss radio broadcast. Sweet one.
BRYAN FERRY. MARCH 10, 2007 (2) Manchester, England. A terrific performance which outshines the flawed taping. Plenty of material from the recent "Dylanesque" album. Dylan lyrics to a roxy beat -- sounds like a good idea to me.
BRYAN FERRY. IN THE MOOD FOR BRYAN FERRY: LIVE 'CONCERT FM/SBD MIX FROM 1973-2010 HIGHLIGHTS. A great collection of stuff. Love it.
BRYAN FERRY. SEPTPEMBER 16, 2011, Moscow. Nice edited "sterile" soundboard. Snazzy, I say.
BRYAN FERRY. SEPTEMBER 3, 2013 (2) Paris, France. Perfect soundboarder. Amazing show with the Bryan Ferry Orchestras as he does a bunch of those 20's/big band arrangements to the Roxy Classics along with regular performances. Supreme!
BRYAN FERRY. SEPTEMBER 14, 2015 (2) Munich. Terrific sounding show - still has all his magic.
ELLA FITZERALD + JIMMY JONES TRIO. LIVE AT THE FRIEDRICHSSTADT PALAST 1967. Great soundboard recording of the mighty jazz singer.
FLAMIN' GROOVIES. THEN. Live stuff from 1979 and other assorted nuggets from this cult band.
LESTER FLATT & EARL SCRUGGS HOUSTON 1965. Not sure of the source of this excellent sounding disc and performance. Some serious pickin - and even a derogatory reference to Martin Luther King. The better sounding of the 2 boots by this artist.
FLATT & SCRUGGS AND THE FOGGY MOUNTAIN BOYS. JUNE 15, 1958. Rising Sun, Maryland. Lots of great banjo playing and real country music. This is closely cropped show perhaps culled from multiple sources. Good fun.
LESTER FLATT & EARL SCRUGGS WSAZ 1959. Radio broadcast in imperfect sound - over 40 tunes on 1 disc - contains dedications, commercials, and other snippets which is fascinating.
FLATT AND SCRUGGS. LIVE IN IRON CITY TENNESSEE 1961. April 7, 1961. Great sounding show from these legends.
FLO & EDDIE. LIVE AT THE ROXY 1976 (2) This comic duo has had a longer career than you may realize. Not entirely successful as a listen, probably would have been funnier live. Not a band band and they certainly harmonize well.
FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS. HIGH LONESOME SOUND. July 27, 1969. Seattle with the and then bonus tracks from May 1970 w/o Gram. Terrific sounding live shows
FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS. TV STUDIOS 1970. 7 Tunes from a tv appearance in the Netherlands in December.
FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS. NOVEMBER 7, 1970. Late show. Filmore East, New York City. Wondrous soundboard from these legendary country rockers. Perfect sound - this is the real good stuff.
FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS. JUNE 1971. Philadelphia. WMMR Radio broadcast - this is a post Parsons Burrito line up of Hillman, Leadon, Clarke, Roberts and Perkins. Sweet sound and a great night of music.
JOHN FOGERTY ROSKILDE 1997. June 27, 1997. Denmark. John was smokin' Excellent recording. Fogerty is Classic Rock - sounds great, but I gotta be in the mood.
JOHN FOGERTY, PETER FRAMPTON & DUANE EDDY. WITNESS HISTORY III, April 5, 2000. These three artists get together for a show at the Ryman Audit
JOHN FOGERTY. JULY 26, 2006. Birmingham, Alabama. Pretty efficient audience taping of Rock and Roll's ageless wonder. Bill Clinton introduces and Willie Nelson steps in for a tune.
JOHN FOGERTY. NOVEMBER 28, 2009 (2) Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. Super generous show from this legend - why exactly do people plan their lives around the Greatful Dead, but Fogerty is just a journeyman rock and roll hall of famer.
JOHN FOGERTY. MAY 14, 2011 (2) Santiago, Chile. Excellent Radio Broadcast. Go Johnny Go.
JOHN FOGERTY. NOVEMBER 17 & NOVEMBER 18, 2011 (3) Beacon Theatre, New York. At these 2 shows he playe the complete Cosmos Factory and then Green River albums. He's a man filled with joy and spirit and boy does that come across. These are good not great tapings, the first night sounded a bit better to these ears. No artist has been more fucked by lawyers, but atleast he's standing now and kicking some serious ass.
JOHN FOHN FOGERTY. MAY 28, 2013. Los Angeles, CA. TV Broadcast. Super sounding and rockling show. I loved it all including the songs I didn't know. Great performance from a top shelf rock and roller, I just wish he wasn't such an assohole.
BEN FOLDS FIVE FEBRUARY 8, 1998 Sounds like a radio recording. Don't mix Ben up with other pop piano players. While this guy can write a catching tune - he does so with wit & attitude.
BEN FOLDS FIVE. NOVEMBER 18, 1999. Stockholm, Sweden. Radio broadcast. One of the band's last gigs I think.
BEN FOLDS. LOFT SESSIONS. December 29, 2005. XM Radio broadcast. Solo performance with piano - terrific.
BEN FOLDS FIVE. JUNE 2, 2012 (2) Mountain Jam, Hunter, NY. First reunion show and it's a soundboard. Lots of fun from this quirky, jerky talented Piano Man.
ROBBIE FULKS. DECEMBER 30, 2007 (2) Berwyn, Illinois. Soundboard. Not sure how I can define him. He's a comic, country, folk, rock odd ball. At times he conjures up Tom Lehrer - there's a lot of comedy here. He's a character and this boot was my introduction to him. Made me a fan.
FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE AT THE RECORD PLANT. March 24, 1985. KSAN-FM in studio performance featuring new songs on the studio album just prior to the big live album. Great stuff, man.
PETER FRAMPTON, JULY 4, 1975. Dallas, Texas. Radio broadcast. Hey this is good stuff. I dig him.
PETER FRAMPTON. LIVE AT CAPITAL THEATER. February 14, 1976 (2) Early and Late Shows. Soundboard. So good.
PETER FRAMPTON. APRIL 30, 1976 (2) Seattle, Washington. Another great soundboard of Peter at the height of it all.
PETER FRAMPTON. SUPERSTARS IN CONCERT. JULY 4, 1976. Radio broadcast. The end is near, but you don't know do you Mr Jones. You get a little interview as well mixed into this. I music is good, but the definition of a mismanaged career.
PETER FRAMPTON. COMES FRAMPTON. JULY 4, 1979. The Summit, Houston. Single disc, maybe radio broadcast. Seemed a bit stilted at time.
PETER FRAMPTON. SOUNDSTAGE. (2) January 18 & 25, 2007. I dig him, he's a great player and I always like his voice. Enjoyable stuff from the would be superstar.
PETER FRAMPTON. August 2, 2008 (2) Atlantic City, NJ. There was a time where everyone I knew owned "Frampton Comes Alive." Everyone! Anyway, Peter has aged well, his voice sounds clear, his playing is is excellent. Obviously he hasn't written a popular tune in 30 years, but so what. You do get a couple of nice instrumentals along with the stadium classics.
PETER FRAMPTON. FIREWORKS IN THE FLATS (2) September 4, 2009. Excellent performance. Soundboard.
PETER FRAMPTON. PETER FRAMPTON COMES ALIVE! IN MESA March 7, 2012 (2) Mesa, Arizona. Great sound boarder of his anniversary Comes Alive Album tour. It worked.
PETER FRAMPTON. MAY 21 2016 (2) Richardson, Texas. Frampton still comes alive. Good stuff, he's cool.
ARETHA FRANKLIN. MAY 2, 1968. Stockholm, Sweden. Nice sounding show from lady soul. She sure can sing.
ARETHA FRANKLIN. JULY 21, 1970. Jazz Festival. Antibes/Juan-Les-Pins. Soundboard. Special performance from the greatest soul singer of all time.
FRIARS' CLUB ROAST. V1. Eee gads. It's a collection from various roast with Pat McCormick, Milton Burle like you've never heard him, Norm Crosby (the best of the raunchy lot) telling dirty, filthy, nasty jokes.
KINKY FRIEDMAN. MAY 9, 2016 (2) Bremen, Germany. He's nearly as much a standup comic as he is musician. It's funny shit.
AN EVENING WITH SALVADOR ALLENDE: THE FRIENDS OF CHILE BENEFIT. May 9, 1974. Madison Square Garden, New York City. Basically all the live performances with the taped segments edited out. Dylan, Ochs, Seeger, Arlo, Dave Van ROnk and even Dennis Hopper.
FUGAZI. LIVE AT FORT RENO PARK, WASHINGTON, DC 8/29/97. These DC punker rockers sure make a raquet. Soundboard.
FUNKADELIC. ROCKY MOUNTAIN SHAKEDOWN. Denver 1976. Sweet funky soundboard, it's groove thing you wouldn't understand.
PETER GABRIEL. OCTOBER 4, 1978 (2) New York City. Excellent show. Robert Fripp stops by at the end of the night. I think this is after solo album #2. Good sound, though he's a wierd dude.
PETER GABRIEL. JULY 21, 1987 (2) Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Whisper clean soundboard. Probably his peak era creatively and performing wise.
PETER GABRIEL. LIVE 1988. Ten clean cuts from the perfectionist's perfectionist. Setlist only.
PETER GABRIEL. HUMAN WAVE WALL. (2) November 6, 1993. Berlin. Soundboard. Cool.
PETER GABRIEL. JUNE 26, 1994. GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL (2) Soundboard. Don't get me wrong, I dig this guy, but a few times I got bored, sometimes his perfection can be cloying
PETER GABRIEL. ON THE STAGE (2) He's a big time artist, but knows it and can be a bit taken with his own wizardry. Sometimes it works and sometimes not.
PETER GABRIEL. PASSION OUTTAKES. MP3 Version. Soundtrack outtakes from the perfectionist's perfectionist. I got 'em, don't know why.
MARY GAUTHIER. APRIL 9, 2003. Nassau Folk Festival. Soundboard. Count me in as a big fan as she is a talented artist and wordsmith. I've seen her 3 times and each time she got better and better. This one is certainly a down beat affair, I found her an inspiration. Been through a lot, but this woman is strong and fierce.
MARVIN GAYE. NOVEMBER 13, 1979. Tokyo, Japan. Radio broadcast, Marvin lushly backed by a full orchestra. Worked best on some of the old Motown numbers, but some of the latter material turned into an MOR mush. Still always well sung.
BOBBIE GENTRY. TV SOUNDTRACK. Consists of the July 27, 1968 and July 17, 1969 BBC2 TV specials. Guests: Donovan & James Taylor. This chanteuse is a bit better than I expected, kinda of fun.
LOWELL GEORGE. MARCH 19, 1974, WHFS-FM Studio, Bethesda, Maryland. The biggest little foot stopped it for a couple of tunes, an informal, casual 4 songs (Linda Ronstadt sings background on a couple). Too bad he died, what a damn waste.
GHOSTS OF ELECTRICITY. OCTOBER 31, 2009 (4) The best that I can tell this is a one night band formed to cover Bob Dylan songs and they know their song well. These are Mark Karan, Robin Sylvester, Mookie Siegel, Stu Allen and Greg Anton - all of whom play for Dead related groups or Jam bands. Some of it works and they are having a good time on this perfect sounding recording. But if you find the Grateful Dead a bore like me, I think they often suck the energy out of the room. Ee gads the noodling can endlessly dull for my taste.
STEVE GIBBONS' DYLAN PROJECT. AUGUST 12, 2011. Cropredy Festival. Nice show from a Dylan cover band - but with a twist. Nice takes, but with some freedom on the arrangements. Not impersonators but intrepreters. Soundboard.
THE GO- GO'S. NEW JERSEY 1981. August 31, 1981. Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Radio broadcast. A fun little pop band.
THE GO-GO'S. BOSTON GARDEN 1982. Soundboard. What to make of these naughty girls. I think they were light weights, but fun.
ROBERT GORDON. LIVE AT THE PARADISE '80. Boston, MA. Retro rockabilly hero comes to my town for a great show. Excellent sounding show. New friend, Tony Garnier on bass.
THE GOURDS 2001-2002 COMPILATION (3) Terrific collection of material.
THE GOURDS. JANUARY 35, 2003. Antoine's, Austin, Texas. A terrific, warm gig in perfect soundboard. Love.
THE GOURDS. NOVEMBER 20, 2004, Alexandria, Virginia. I'll say it again, sweet soundboard recording, great show.
THE GOURDS. APRIL 7, 2007, Eugene, Oregon. Fun. Happy. Well played. Outstanding. And yeah, a soundboard.
THE GOURDS. APRIL 26, 2008 (2) Livingston, Texas. Nice soundboard from these good time bad asses. Highlights: "Bottle and A Dime" and "Teacher."
THE GOURDS. DECEMBER 4, 2009 (2) Austin, Texas. Simply awesome, a masterpiece. Perfect soundboard. This is magnificence.
THE GOURDS. FEBRUARY 19, 2010 (2) Austin, Texas. A great show with a ton of stage banter filled with memories and great stories. And spectacular music. Soundboarder.
THE GOURDS. MAY 28, 2010 (2) Austin, Texas. Another great soundboard from a band that I can't get enough of. Trust me, these guys are terrific.
THE GOURDS. THE BRAND PARTY. September 18, 2010 (2) Scotch Plains, NJ. Private party captured nicely. Not my favorite setlist, but always a pleasure.
THE GOURDS. FEBRUARY 24, 2011 (2) Charleston, South Carolina. Soundboard recording for a birthday party. As always, alot of fun.
THE GOURDS APRIL 23, 2011 (2) The Top Hat. Another great soundboarder, I dig it.
THE GRATEFUL DEAD. FEBRUARY 12, 1989 (2) Inglewood, California. Soundboard. Dylan showed, played on a half dozen songs and sang "Knockin on Heaven's Door."
THE GRATEFUL DEAD. OCTOBER 17, 1994 (3) New York, New York. Bob Dylan shows up to close out the night singing lead on "Rainy Day" which is the sole reason I own this soundboarder. Note to self: I filed along with Dylan shows in 1994 ringbinder.
GREEN DAY. A DAY OUT IN PARIS. February 3, 1998, Paris Franc. Quite good sound board recording. Their stage chat is endearingly goofy. Hey it's fun stuff!
GREEN DAY. APRIL 14, 2009 (2) Oakland, California. A showcase gig with Billie Joe and the boys playing the entire new album. It's an acceptable audience recording at best, at best.
AL GREEN. THE GOSPEL OF LOVE. New York City, 1973. From a PBS television broadcast. You get a 5 min interview with the 25 year old Al and then a sweet, soulful show.
JACKIE GREENE. FEBRUARY 13, 2010 (2) Boston, Massachusetts. Stupendous gig with a couple of Dead covers on his set list.
JACKIE GREENE. MARCH 1, 2014. The Troubadour, Los Angeles, California. Sourced as a converted Youtube file. I caught this show as I wanted to go to visit the famed club on business trip. Lo and behold, I saw a great musician and bought his catalog of CDs too. He's the real deal, blues based rock with a love of Dylan, the Beatles and the Dead.
JACKIE GREENE. SPETEMVBER 23, 2015. Philadelphia. Nice live show. One long file.
JACKIE GREENE. FEBRUARY 13, 2016 (2) Fairfield, Connecticut. Good audience taping from this wondrous musician.
GULF AID BENEFIT CONCERT (3) May 16, 2010. New Orleans. Radio broadcast. Great sound though you do not get complete sets from Allen Toussiant, Ani DiFranco, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, John Legend...and Lenny Kravitz.
GUN'S 'N ROSES. SESSIONS (2) Superb collection of outakes, alt versions etc. You get an an all piano of "November Rain," a couple of takes of "Jumpin Jack Flash" among it's gems. This is really good.
GUN 'N ROSES. APPETITE FOR OUTTAKES (2) Demos, studio stuff etc. Wildly varied in quality, but there are some nuggets in here.
GUNS 'N ROSES. JUNE 28, 1987. Marque Club, London. This is a pro soundboard recording, announced by Axel as being recorded by the record company. Third night before they broke out and it is incendiary.
GUNS 'N ROSES. OCTOBER 27, 1987. Boston, Mass. It's a shitty recording which I usually toss, but I want to keep this one anyways.
BAD BOYS, GREAT NOISE.(2) December 26, 1987. Pasadena, California. Great sounding boot, boyz in their prime.
GUNS "N ROSES. SILENT SHOTS. February 2, 1988. New York City. A Killer single disc, superior recording. Awesome.
GUNS 'N ROSES. NOVEMBER RAIN. STUDIO SESSIONS - 1986. 15 Demos or alternate studio takes - contains stuff from "Appetite," "Lies," and the "Illusions" discs. Makes me realize what a punk band these bad boys were. Axl's vocals at time sound like they were recorded in bathroom, but otherwise a pretty gooD sounding disc.
GUNS 'N ROSES. USE YOUR ILLUSSION OUTTAKES (2) A very enjoyable set of outtakes and alt takes.
GUNS 'N ROSES. UNPLUGGED. I don't have any source info, but the 11 acoustic tracks are from different locations and era's. Great sounding stuff, some of it real informal.
GUNS 'N ROSES. COVERING THEM. First there are some digital clicks between tracks though I only noticed one individual click on a close listen. Most of these covers are the usual nightly fair but you do get a couple of rarities I suppose. All in good sound and performance.
GUNS N' ROSES. OUT OF TIME. September 30, 1987, Dusseldorf, Germany. 11 rocking' tunes
GUNS' N' ROSES. SELF DESTRUCT ERA. (2) December 7, 1988. Tokyo, Japan. Soundboard. C'mon, these is noisy, amazing rock and roll. A Blast to listen.
GUNS 'N ROSES MAY 29, 1991 (2) Noblesville, Indiana. Soundboard. Say what you will but Axl runs a tight ship. I think only Izzy from the originals join, but must say this rocks out! Excellent.
GUNS 'N ROSES. THE 11 COMMANDMENTS. 1992, New York City. 11 tunes plucked from this MSG show. Seems like a cleaned up, acceptable audience taping though it gets dicey at times. Axl is voluble, wierd, insane and just plain fun as you'd expect.
GUNS 'N ROSES. NOVEMBER RAIN AT THE TOKYO DOME (2) February 22, 1992. I popped this into my iPod having not listened to this band too much recently. You can't help but realize that this was truly an extraordinary band who had an opportunity to rewrite the record book. They didn't. They imploded. They blew it. But man oh man, they were special. Incredible rock song writing. Great musicianship. Great arrangements. They had it all and when they had it all, they were incredible. This is the audio feed of a Japan only release and it sounds fantastic. The only other thing I can say is: essential.
GUNS 'N ROSES. SAY YOUR PRAYERS (2) June 6, 1992, Paris, France. Per Per View. If you need any evidence that these guys COULD have been one of the greatest band EVER this is it. Musically ambitious. Axl's snarling vocals and toxic charisma. Slash. This is a great show with guests: Lenny Kravitz, Steven Tyler & Joe Perry. Superb.
GUNS N' ROSES. NIGHT OF THE LIVID RED HEAD. (2) December 5, 1992, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Stunning soundboard. With Axl stopping the show twice, calling for an interpreter and threatening to walk if people don't stop throwing stuff, this is a show on knife's edge. An amazing rock and roll document, if you need proof - which you shouldn't - of these Cali misfits brilliance and scale this is it. A show filled with intensity and magic.
GUNS N' ROSES. LIVE IN ARGENTINA. JULY 16 1993 (2) Absolutely killer show - these guys at their peak had so many moments of pure rock and roll heaven. Soundboard.
GUNS 'N ROSES. ROCK IN RIO FESTIVAL (2) January 15, 2001. A wild soundboard boot. Axl and his new friends do the legacy justice. Some hysterical stage talk - this one is a blast.
GUNS N' ROSES. TRILOGY. Contains November 8, 2002 (Tacoma, Washington), November 11, 2002 (Nampa, Idaho), and November 24, 2002 (Cleveland). All fantastic!!!!!
GUNS 'N ROSES. DEMOCRACY IN BEANTOWN (2) December 2, 2002, Boston, Massachusetts. Great sounding show - say what you will - Axl is an amazing band leader. His bands comes to play.
GUNS N' ROSES. NOVEMBER 25, 2002. (2) Columbus, Ohio. Soundboard. Rock and Roll.
GUNS N' ROSES. April 9, 2016 (2) Las Vegas. Good audience recording. Fun stuff.
GUNS N' ROSES. WELCOME BACK TO THE JAPANGLE. (3) January 22, 2017. Kobe, Japan. It's an imperfect audience taping, but it's charm use out as this band is simply a wonder.
GUNS N' ROSES. SALTIMA 2017 (3) January 29, 2017 Saltima, Japan. A reminder at how great this rock band cam put together a show. This is a very good audience taping, capturing the energy, mayhem and attitude of this mighty band.
GUNS N' ROSES. JUNE 13, 2017 (3) Munchen, Germany. Imperfect audience taping of a nearly perfect show.
LIVE AT THE APOLLO (3) July 30, 2017. Apollo Theatre, New York City. Sirius/XM show. Fucking great.
ARLO GUTHERIE. GERDES FOLK CITY. 1966. First set only of an early Arlo show. You get an early take on Alice's Restaurant - who knew? Fantastic stuff.
ARLO GUTHERIE. THE BITTER END CAFE. 1967. Early soundboard - just three songs "Motorcyle" and "Alice" included. Fun stuff, man.
ARLO GUTHERIE & SHENANDOAH. February 26, 1976. Boston, Mass. Sensational show, I guess this was a fund raiser for Presidential candidate Fred Harris (S-NM) I remember him, you should too. Anyway, terrific show and great taping. Every song is a treasure.
ARLO GUTHERIE. AUSTRIA 1981. Delightful show- Arlo is always great. Donovan stops by for the final 3 tunes. A bunch of Dylan covers on this night and "Coming into London" what more do you need?
ARLO GUTHERIE. AUGUST 19, 1984. Accord, New York. Ncie show out in the rain. Arlo sounds and plays well. "Alice" is performed by the source recording is chopped up a bit. Great.
ARLO GUTHERIE. AUGUST 12, 2006, Scotland. BBC recording. With son & grandso in band. A short, joy filled set.
ARLO GUTHERIE. AUGUST 18, 2006. (2) Dublin, Ireland. Radio broadcast. Sensational show and maybe the best Arlo boot in my collection. You get stories, great music, a complete "Alice," and everything one would want in a show. 5 Star.
ARLO GUTHERIE. HERE'S LOOKING AT YOU. August 12, 2007. Vienna, Virginia. Another superb show, this guy is great I tell ya. This one is Arlo solo playing songs and tellin' tales. Delightful.
ARLO GUTHERIE. FEBRUARY 1, 2008.(2) Randolph, Vermont. A generous 2 hour show from the mighty Arlo. Some great stories here too. Love.
ARLO GUTHERIE. MAY 10, 2010 (2) Kingston, Ontario. Decent audience taping, you know great stories and wonderful songs.
ARLO GUTHERIE. WINNIPEG FOLK FESTIVAL. July 12, 2009, Winnipeg, Canada. I've heard most of the stories by how, but always a charm.
ARLO GUTHERIE. NOVEMBER 9, 2009 (2) Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. Another engaging, warm show from Arlo. Stories. Anecdotes, what else do you need?
WOODY GUTHERIE HOOTANANNY/BACK WHERE I COME FROM. Consists of 2 radio programs from March 10 & August 10, 1947 - that forty seven. Also inclues other performers. Dig.
WOODY GUTHERIE. LIBRARY OF CONGRESS RECORDINGS. MARCH 22, 1940. Don't know the back story on this one. This is basically Alan Lomax interviewing and recording Wood. You gets stories and performances of "Pretty Boy Floyd," "Ain't Got No Home" etc. Interesting...and cool.
WOODY GUTHERIE. UNRELEASED RADIO SHOWS 1940-1947. Very interesting material.
MERLE HAGGARD. JUNE 6, 1980. Lone Star Cafe, New York City. Country Sessions radio broadcast includes commercials for True Value Hardware by Pat Summerall. Great gig, friends.
MERLE HAGGARD. OPRYLAND 1981. Nashville. Like you had to ask. Radio broadcast..."He picks as good as he sings..." Nice clean show.
MERLE HAGGARD. SILVER EAGLE RADIO BROADCAST. Opryland 1982. At first I thought a dup of the above show, but a different setlist so there.
MERLE HAGGARD. FEBRUARY 3, 1986. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. What a fab radio show with a mid show award honoring Hag as Oklahoma of the day or some such thing. Great music and great vibe and feel. Sweeeeet!
MERLE HAGGARD. SPETEMBER 11, 1997 (2) Shereveport, Louisiana. Honoring Governor Jimmie Davis in a great FM Broadcast. Delight.
MERLE HAGGARD. NOVEMBER 6, 2000. Austin City limits. Short show and right on. A fabulous listen.
MERLE HAGGARD & THE STRANGERS. JUNE 14, 2002. Stockton, California. Decent audience taping. Sweet little show.
MERLE HAGGARD AND THE STRANGERS. APRIL 25, 2006. Memphis, Tennessee. Opening set for Bob Dylan. Decent audience taping. I caught - not this show - but others on the tour and would have loved a better representation. Love Hag!
MERLE HAGGARD. APRIL 29, 2006, Denver, Colorado. Another Dylan opening set, nice recording from a warm and happy Merle. Good.
HARD WORKING AMERICAN. February 22, 2014 (2) Chicago, Illinois. Messy radio broadcast of Todd Snider and his cronies - a single file as I burned it sourced off of You Tube.
JOHN WESLEY HARDING. APRIL 22, 1993. Santa Monica, California. Hope you haven't missed this guy whose given name is Wesley Stace, he's a powerful, charismatic performer and a great song writer. This is a soundboard recording from a free gig he did at an urban outfitters. Fun, loosey, goosey show.
BEN HARPER. APRIL 11, 2001. Sydney, Australia. Nice soundboard recording from an artist that just doesn't engage me - me thinks he is guilty of dullsville, but he can play.
EMMYLOUS HARRIS & THE HOT BAND. JUNE 23, 1975. Denver, Colorado. Very nice show from my favorite honky tonk angel. Rodney Crowell in band helping out.
EMMYLOU HARRIS. LIVE ON OHNE FILTER. October 31, 2000. Baden Baden, Germany. As the cliche goes, like fine wine she just gets better with age. Real beauty and talent.
EMMYLOU HARRIS. MARCH 17, 2011. Austin, Texas. Emmylou introducing her new album, Hard Bargain. I liked a couple of the songs - particularly the more upbeat ones. She's a cool chick.
EMMYLOU HARRIS & RODNEY CROWELL. JULY 18, 2015. BRBF Peer, Belgium. Soundboard. Wonderous set from these two talents. I saw them in Boston on this tour. Crowell's "Rock of my Soul" is a stone cold classic.
DEBORAH HARRY. WEMBLEY 1981. Nice soundboard recording. Some good versions of the Blondie tunes. Hey, she's still hot.
RICHIE HAVENS. LIVE IN JAPAN. He may be a relic of the 60's, but he sings with conviction, passion and soul. Don't have a date of this recording, but certainly would be either late 90's or early 2000's.
ISAAC HAYES. JULY 27, 1997. Stuttgart, Germany. 77 Minutes of hot buttered soul. Black Moses, a forgotten giant.
ISAAC HAYES INDIANAPOLIS JAZZ FEST 1999. June 19, 1999. Nine song set in commercial sound quality. I prefer the funky tunes as opposed to the Jazz, but it's an enjoyable gig.
LEVON HELM. JULY 18, 1984 (2) Woodstock, New York. Joyous local show, great sounds, great peeps.
LEVON HELM. JUNE 13, 2008. Chicago. A paper flat audience taping. Nice set list, mix of old Band classics, new stuff and covers. Levon sounds great, bless him.
LEVON HELM BAND. 6TH ANNUAL MOUNTAIN JAM. (2) June 6, 2010 Hunter, New York. A really nice audience reording unfortunately my copy cuts out the last 4 tunes. Tons of guests; Donald Fagan, Allison Krause, Steve Earle, Allison Moorer, Warren Haynes, Ray Lamontagne, Patterson Hood. Great stuff.
LEVON HELM BAND. JULY 8, 2010. Winnepeg Folk Fest. A killer show and a strong recording. If you aren't listening to this band you are missing someone who is carrying the flag forward.
LEVON HELM TRIBUTE. APRIL 21, 2012. Ryman Auditorium, Nashville, Tennessee. While titled as a tribute, this is really A Garrison Keiler radio show with performances from Emmy Lou and others that is a bit broaded than a pure tribute. Not really certain why it got listed that way, but it is still fabulous.
JIMI HENDRIX: A TRIBUTE. (2) Thoroughly engaging radio documentary on the mighty man. You hear Mick, Eric, Pete & Paul along with others as a part of the program. Premiere broadcast in November 1982.
JIMI HENDRIX. STOCKHOLM '67. Jimi's guitar is a tad undermiked during the opener of "Sgt Pepper's," but after that it's pure magic. Plays a bunch of my personal favorites: "Foxy Lady," "Hey Joe," "Fire," "The Wind Cried Mary," and a "Purple Haze" that I cranked so loud I need new bridge work.
JIMI HENDRIX. MIXDOWN MIXMASTER TAPES. VOLUME 1-3. Sweet treasure trove of studio outtakes. Was assured by the Hendrix collector that this is the good stuff.
JIMI HENDRIX. IT'S ONLY A PAPER MOON. MARCH 10, 1968, NYC mostly and then a few other tracks as well. Soundboard.
JIMI HENDRIX & JIM MORRISON. LIVE AT THE SCENE CLUB. Summer, 1968. Sounds better than it is, but still fun to see these 2 dead legends jam together.

JIMI HENDRIX. IT'S GOING TO BE A BIT LOUD. January 9, 1969. Second Show. Stockholm, Sweden A soundboard that blasts off. Woo hoo.
JIMI HENDRIX. FOR THE QUEEN. Isle of Wight. August, 1970. Soundboard. Jammin' ensued.
GIL SCOTT-HERON. AUGUST 20, 1977 (2) Live at the Bottom Line, New York City. I will put aside his anti-semitism to say that he is an artist with alot to say, his spoken word stuff can't be insightful and incendiary and his best songs fuze jazz, rock and soul. His musical collaboration with Brian Jackson stand the test of time and this is a fine sound board recording.
GIL SCOTT-HERON. MARCH 14, 1990. LONDON. BBC Radio broadcast. He certainly has an amazing quality to his voice and this is truly outstanding music. You get "Detroit," "Johnnesburg" and closes out with a spellbinding "Bottle." Its good shit.
BOO HERWERDINE. BBC. 20 Minute radio show appearance on the Bob Harris radio program, neat guy and a fine artist.
JOHN HIATT. SINCE HIS PENIS CAME BETWEEN US. 1984. The Netherlands. Live FM Broadcast plus bonus tracks. I am more familiar with the post Bring the Family Material so this material was new to my ears. Hey, good stuff. And title track, not the greatest tune but hey what a title.
JOHN HIATT. BUG DEMOS. 1983-1985. (2) Really a single disc with one additional track on disc two. Very nice set of stuff.
JOHN HIATT. DEMOS BOX SET (4). A pretty interesting windfall of demo's, outtakes and the like.
JOHN HIATT. SOLO AT THE BOTTOM LINE. November 11, 1986. Early Show. Real nice show from an underappreciated talent.
JOHN HIATT & THE GONERS. OCTOBER 7, 1988 (2) New York City. WNEW Broadcast from the Bottom Line. This is the gold standard. Super.
JOHN HIATT & THE GONERS. DECEMBER 16, 1988 (2) San Diego, California. Lots of Bring the Family & Slow Turning material. Incredible. Soundboarder.
JOHN HIAITT. JANUARY 4, 1989. Ottawa. Superb radio broadcast.
JOHN HIATT & THE GONERS. JANUARY 24, 1989. San Francisco, California. Another great radio broadcast. Special stuff.

JOHN HIATT. LIVE @ THE HIATT. London. October 30, 1993. Nice rock and roll album from a man with an amazing voice.
JOHN HIATT & THE GUILTY DOGS. January 25, 1994.(2) New Britain, Connecticut. FM Broadcast. He's just on.
JOHN HIATT & THE GUILTY DOGS. MARCH 7, 1994 (2) Austin, Texas. Radio broadcast with interview clips. Good fun from Mr. Good Fun.
JOHN HIATT & THE GUILTY DOG. SAN FRANCISCO SLIMS. (2) March 27, 1994. Radio Broadcast. A rockin' performance, smokin'. Superb kick ass show.
JOHN HIATT. BRING THE FAMILY OUTTAKES. My version has 8 terrific alt takes from album - sounds really like these were demos.
JOHN HIATT. SLOW TURNING SESSIONS. 9 nice sounding demos from the fine album.
JOHN HIATT & THE GONERS. JULY 1, 2000. Bayfield, Wisconsin. Great, rocking soundboard. Wonderful.
JOHN HIATT & THE GONERS. RIDING THE TRAIN (2) January 17, 2002. Aarhus, Denmark. Not my favorite Hiatt show, but this Radio show certainly has it's charms.
JOHN HIATT. JUNE 26, 2008 (2) Ann Arbor, Michigan. Imperfect audience recording, the music sounds good throughout, but you have to strain to hear the between song words.
JOHN HIATT. AUGUST 16, 2008 (2) Cockeysville, Maryland. Tasty gig - supreme recording. Love the man - you should too. Doesnt' just rock, it swings.
THE HIGHWAYMEN. APRIL 3, 1992 (2) Stockholm Sweden. Tasty soundboard from this ragged assembledge.
THE HIGHWAYMEN. APRIL 15, 1993 (2) Battle Creek, Michigan. I've been there - Battle Creek I mean. Anyway, nice soundboard recording of these legends.
THE HIGHWAYMEN. JUNE 4, 1995 (2). Los Angeles, With Cash, Willie, Waylon and Kristopherson this is truly an immense supergroup. Incredible show that kicks serious ass.
CHRIS HILLMAN & HERB PEDERSON. JUNE 2, 2011, Bean Blossom, Indiana. I should probably know more Hillman than I do as he has been in so many bands that I love. Nice clean soundboard show.
ROBYN HITCHCOCK MAY 15, 1996 (2) London. Have no source or track listing information for this one. First disc contains the famed Dylan tribute show, the second various Hitchcock songs - live, studio and otherwise.
HOLE. BIG DAY OUT. Fabulous sound quality thoughout this disc taken from that large Australian music festival in January/1999. Hear Courtney curse! Hear Courtney defend the bible. Hear Courtney refuse to play another song until the photographers leave. Extended introductions for each song, but the Girrl can rock.
HOLE. PLUGGED & UNPLUGGED. Contains the MTV Unplugged show and a Feburary/1994 gig. Terrific sound quality, missing one track from the 21 listed.
BILLIE HOLIDAY. APRIL 22, 1946. NYC. 40 Minutes including instrumentals. Not setlist or artwork just Lady Day.
BILLIE HOLIDAY. OCTOBER 29, 1951. Storyville Club, Boston, Massachusetts. A great yet ancient sounding show. No setlist or source info and I think there was multiple sources including a few other performers tacked on at the end.
BUDDY HOLLY. THE COMPLETE BUDDY HOLLY (10). It's an exhaustive collection of all sorts of stuff. Not sure it's complete, but it's got a ton of stuff including tunes that Buddy played guitar on, etc. Cool!
BUDDY HOLLY. THE FAMOUS BUDDY HOLLY APARTMENT TAPES. Stunning. Sort of like Buddy unplugged in his NYC apartment just laying down some tunes. It's pure audio gold. All music until near the end of the apartment stuff with a little wierd and playful chat with his wife. And then there are some unsourced bonus tracks tacked on (radio performances & other material backed with a band).
BUDDY HOLLY WHAT YOU'VE BEEN A-MISSING (4) A massive - over 120 tracks - collective of interviews, outtakes, promo's, news stories, demo's etc. The final disc - least essential - consists of Buddy's session work, atleast I think. Amazing stuff from the hero of authenticity. No artwork, but I did finally get source information.
BUDDY HOLLY IN PERSON A terrific patchwork collection of stuff; Ed Sullivan Show, interviews, outtakes etc.
BUDDY HOLLY. BUDDY'S RAREST. A plethora of studio material with multiple takes from various backing bands: The Crickets, Three Tunes & The Picks.
BUDDY HOLLY. SOMETHING ELSE. No setlist or source info. Signficant overlap with some of the bootlets listed here with interviews and performances.
BUDDY HOLLY. RECORDED LIVE. More unsourced material with the usual mix of live, studio etc. Anyone have artwork for these last two?
HOLMES BROTHERS. HORSESHOE TAVERN. APRIL 12, 2001 (2), Toronto, Canada. I downloaded this on a whim due its description. Hey, these guys are fantastic: A wonderful mix of blues, soul, gospel and sweat.
JOHN LEE HOOKER. JUNE 18, 1976. Cologne,Germany. Only 7 songs, 41 minutes all pure blues Heaven.
JOHN LEE HOOKER LIVE AT MONTREAUX. July 11, 1990. Commercial sound from the healer who name checks Nina Simone & Van Morrison from the audience. Superb. Boom Boom Boom.
SON HOUSE. STUDS TERKEL WAX MUSEUM SHOW. April 19, 1965. Hosted by Studs Terkel, interview and performance. Pretty cool, eh.
THE HOUSEMARTINS. SEPTEMBER 30, 1987. Nottingham, England. I always viewed them as sort of a pop version of Squeeze. This is a radio broadcast so it sounds great and has all their hits along with other excellent material. It's a snappy, clever little outfit.
RAY WYLIE HUBBARD. JUNE 21, 2000 (2) The Blue Door, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Soundboard recording from an American Original. Hysterical stories with songs to follow. Good stuff.
IAN HUNTER. SEPTEMBER 11, 1981. New York City. Radio broadcast and it is a fantastic one. Great show and great music - this guy is top shelf.
HUNTER RONSON BAND. SAN JOSE 1989, December 16, 1989. Radio broadcast and what a killer frickiln' show. This is outstanding rock music - great set, great playing, great recording!
IAN HUNTER. JUNE 24, 2009. New York City. Ian is nearly 70 and kickin' it. He's good time rock and roll. Period.
HURRAY FOR THE RIFF FAFF. AUGUST 31, 2012. Gateshead, UK. A terrific sounding show from my girl!
HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF. APRIL 25, 2014 (2) Los Angeles, California. 2 long files, BTW. Great stuff from Alynda Lee Segera whose a wondrous talent. Keep at it, you've got a great opportunity to make your mark!
HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFFF. OCTOBER 28, 2017. Amsterdam. Soundboard. Put me in the minority camp of fans who doesn't particular care for the Navigator album. With that said, the chick plays with some passion and conviction. Keep it up.
MISSISSIPPI JOHN HURT. YOUNGSTOWN 1955 & NEW YORK CITY 1963. Good strumming and picking from a nearly forgotten bluesman.
MISSISSIPPI JOHN HURT and SKIP JAMES. OCTOBER 1964. These are in studio performances along with stilted interviews at WTBS in Cambridge, Mass. Great stuff from these great blues artists. There is a clipped interview with Muddy Waters attached to this single file as well.
BILLY IDOL. MAY 11, 1987. Mountain View, California. Radio broadcast. Silly and great rock. It's a gas, gas gas.
BILLY IDOL LIVE. September 12, 2003. (2) Asbury Park, NJ. Soundboard and fun. Billy is just flat out fun and he had a couple of more than good hits. Just sort of dig it.
INXS. LIVE SENSATION. 1988. A great little band built on the formula of drums, riffs & Beats with the charasmatic front man flailing away at the mic. Excellent recording.
CHRIS ISAAK & SILVERTONE (2) SEPTEMBER 10, 1988. Santa Cruz, California. It's a long, long generous show from this rockabilly crooner It's good show, just sort of endless.
CHRIS ISAAK. TWILIGHT SONGS. Live in Europe, 1993. Soundboard boot, he's got the look...he's got the pipes. Enjoyable show.
JACKSON 5. IMPERIAL PALACE. April 22, 1973. Tokyo, Japan. Sloppy soundboard of the kids. Glad to have it, didn't love it.
MICHAEL JACKSON. SEPTEMBER 27, 198. (2) Yokohama, Japan. Great boot from the long gone strange one.
MICHAEL JACKSON. GREAT DUETS & UNRELEASED DEMOS. Really more of a hard to get collection . There's a spanish version of "I Just Can't Stop Loving You," various duets, 12" etc.
MICHAEL JACKSON. BRUNEI (2) 1996. This is one of those multi million dollar private shows. Actually sounded and felt alot better than I thought. Good live band and hey, them's some really good songs. Clearly some piped in music to help the band, but that's really my only critisim.
MICHAEL JACKSON. 30TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL 2001. New York City. A showy tribute to MJ largely fall flat, overwrought and bland. Only warms up when Jacko takes to the mic.
WANDA JACKSON. JANUARY 23, 2011. Los Angeles, California. Backed by Jack White and his band for a show promoting their album together. Rocks much harder than her band which performs in the rockabilly tradition. This is a shitty audience recording.
THE JAM. SET THE SKIES ABLAZE. A compilation from the November 1980 Sound Affects European Tour. MP3 Version. I found this a real revelation. Never was a big fun of the band and couldn't see what the fuss was about. But this disc shows me the explosion of their live performance. Great stuff.
THE JAM. MAY 20, 1982. Boston, Massachusetts. Radio broadcast. Starts and ends with brief band interviews. They didn't really translate across the pond, but I like 'em alot.
JANE'S ADDICTION. LAST FIX. September 9, 1991. Honolulu. The once future of rock and roll at their 70's demi rock god peak. A quite fun soundboard.
KEITH JARRET. THE DYLAN CONCERT. As I often say, I like everything about jazz except the music.
JEFFERSON AIRPLANE. MAY 1, 1970 (2) Stony Brook, New York. First the good, it's a soundboard recording and contains the 3 classic tunes: Volunteers, White Rabbit and Somebody to Love. The bad: This is a horrible, terrible, shitty band. They don't play well together. The two singers suck. There are a couple of absolutely unlistenable, embarassing tunes. Maybe the most over praised band in human history.
GARLAND JEFFREYS. MAY 19, 1981. Los Angeles, California. Radio broadcast - this one captures off of WNEW. A great show from an artist who should have been alot more popular. Ghost Writer being one of the most unheralded albums of the 1970's. This is great rock and roll.
WAYLON JENNINGS and JESSI COULTER. JUNE 15, 1984. Worcester, Massachusetts. Radio Broadcast. Superb show, you get a short opening set from Jessi and then Waylon joins on stage for a killer show.
WAYLON JENNINGS. AUGUST 2, 1975. Sugarloaf, Maine. It's classic Waylon. He was a great talent and Iought to listen to him more frequently. A great country outlaw, too bad I never got the opportunity to see him.
JESUS & MARY CHAIN. LIVE IN CHICAGO 1994. Underated band with one foot in the Clash and the other in the heart of rock and roll. These guys weren't on the radio much, just on my turntable.
JOAN JETT. JUNE 1981. Long Island, New York. Radio Broadcast. Joan simply gets it. She loves rock and roll and she gets it.
JEWEL. MARCH 9, 1997 (2) Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. Well, she's got the looks and she's got alot of musical talent too. Certainly a mellow chick singer and I tend o like 'em a it rougher, but still appreciate her. Lots of songs about friends that have died. Hope she finds some happier people to hang with.
EILEN JEWELL. JUNE 24, 2011 (2) Arlington, Virginia. Soundboard. A fantastic talent so I hope you haven't missed her. A nice balanced show, thoroughly enjoyable.
EILEEN JEWELL JANUARY 16, 2012 (2) Arlington, Virginia. Jeez another soundboard from Arlington and it's a another great show. She is a wonderful talent - don't miss her.
DAVID JOHNSON. LIVE AT BUNKY'S. July 4, 1976. Madison, Wisconsin. Radio show - this tour as really his solo (Rock) peak as it was the right material, the right band, the vibe and the right time.
GEORGE JONES AND THE JONES BOYS. RADIO JAMBOREE 1963. Sounds like some kind of radio show with various Hank Williams songs among others performed - 23 tunes in total. Perfect sound
GEORGE JONES. PASADENA 1979. Gilley's, Pasadena, Texas. There are some source flaws on this soundboarder, but it's a fun show. George's a bit drunk, but the singing still largely holds up.
GEORGE JONES. GILLEY'S 1984. Pretty Good taping, I'd call it a flawed soundboard. By the way, I rode he bull a Gilley's.
GEORGE JONES. JULY 18, 2008. North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. A nicely played show hosted by a chatty, low key George. You get an opening set by The Jones Boys with Brittany Allyn, then a complete gig from the legend. He touches all the bases.
RICKIE LEE JONES. August 23, 1982 (2) Kansas City. Soundboard. She's a freaky girl, but an intriguing one. Backed by a talented band, she' a talent.
RICKIE LEE JONES (2) APRIL 19, 1992. Hamburg, Germany. Stunning! Was promoting her "Pop" album along with highlights from her career. This is sensational.
NORAH JONES. JANUARY 20, 2007. (2) Paris, France. French radio broadcast and I must say I'm mighty impressed. It's mellow, but she is a talented artist and you shouldn't hold her massive commercial success against her. It's good stuff here.
NORAH JONES. FEBRUARY 10, 2010, Paris, France. Radio broadcast. She's a talent and I like her, but can be a bit dull at times.
TOM JONES. AUGUST 6, 2002 (2) Los Angeles, California. Love it! Spectacular! Great recording and show. Tom is 100% pure kick ass.
SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS. December 12, 2007. NPR Podcast. 32 minutes of funky grooves from America's great party band.
SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS. NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL 2010. August 1, 2010. Newport, Rhode Island. NPR broadcast. I was caught in traffic and missed half their show, I was pissed. They were and are great.
TOM JONES. MARCH 6, 2002 (2) Los Angeles, California. He's just so much fun. A great fistful of his own hits and perfectly selected covers. Rock on!
TOM JONES. GLASTONBERRY. JUNE 28, 2009. Soundboard. Amazing. I like this guy not because its kitchy the way some people like Abba. No, I like this guy because he is an incredible artist.
JANIS JOPLIN. THIS IS JANIS. 1965. Clean, audition tape from one of rock's most overpraised brands. Still not band, and actually enjoyed this more than I expected.
JANIS JOPLIN. MARCH 27, 1966. Santa Fe, New Mexico. Soundboard. She was an amazing singer, really.
JANIS JOPLIN. GET IT WHILE YOU CAN. July 8, 1970. Honolulu, Hawaii. A good, though highly washed I think, sound of 60's cast off legend. She can certainly screech and pour her heart into it all.
JANIS JOPLIN/BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMPANY. TRIBAL STOMP. Various live cuts from a true believer.
JANIS JOPLIN. RAREST PEARLS. A sturdy collection of outtakes including a rockin' take of Dylan's "Dear Landlord." Alot of good stuff, my fav an accoustic "Bobby McGee" and some mediocre material as well.
JANIS JOPLIN. BLOW ALL MY BLUES AWAY (9) Massive set of outtakes and live recordings which is simultaneously riveting and frustrating. Some of the live stuff with the band jamming away is downright dreadful - some of the singing is amazing. For big ears only, it's quite a listen.
J. GEILS BLUES BAND. SEPTEMBER 1968 (2) Montreal, Canada. Early band concept - no original, all blues covers. The Sound is clean, but scrubbed and somewhat 1 dimensional, maybe mono. Long ago and far away....
J. GEILS BAND. JUNE 27, 1971. New York City. The great band that time has forgotten. The real deal with a similar setlist to "Full House."
J. GEILS BAND. JUNE 24, 1972 Wetzikon, Switzerland. 10 Songs in less than perfect sound, but glad its on my shelves.
J. GEILS BAND. DETROIT 1974. November 3, 1984. This is a full house era show with Wolf's familiar stage raps. Oh I love these hometown boys.
J. GEILS BAND. 1974 KING BISCUIT FLOWER HOUR. My very concert were these guys. This is a very very good sounding radio show, commercials have been clipped off of one of the greatest R & B bar bands of all time.
J. GEILS BAND. APRIL 24, 1979. Amsterdam. Radio broadcast of 10 gems. Great stuff.
J. GEILS BAND. PINK POP FESTIVAL. May 26, 1980. Netherlands. 11 Smashin' tunes in soundboard from the Bad Boys of Boston.
J. GEILS BAND. JULY 14, 1999 (2) Clarkston, Michigan. Decent, sorta audience taping. The world would be a better place with this band playing shows and recording. Period.
J. GEILS BANDS. JUNE 23, 1999 (2) Mansfield, Massachusetts. A poor, audience recording from their reunion tour doesn't do the band justice.
J. GEILS BAND. BOSTON BREAKDOWN (2) December 29, 1999. A fun extra show from one of the great American bands, nice mix of tunes. Love 'em.
J. GEILS BAND. FULL HOUSE 2009. April 24-25, 2009. Detroit, Michigan. And so this mighty band reunites for a 4 show reunion tour ( I caught one of the Boston shows) This is an 8 song recreation of the old war horse. Fun!
J. GEILS BAND. APRIL 25, 2009 (2) Detroit,Michigan. This is the complete soundboard, baby, and it's alot of fun. The bad boys from Boston know how to mine the magic. Yes.
ROBERT EARL KEEN. SEPTEMBER 5, 2009 (2) New Branufels, Texas Soundboarder. It's a rolicking good time from these good old boys.
GREG KIHN. JULY 14, 1984. Santa Cruz, California. Radio broadcast. Lightweight California new wave, it's okay - it's certainly noone's idea of what the genre can offer.
B.B. KING. APRIL 3, 1986 (2) Roanoke, Virginia. Super stuff, he was cooking. Nicely recorded gig.
CAROLE KING. FEBRUARY 29, 1976 (2) Boston, Massachusetts. Friendly audience taping - at times a bit jiggy - but I still dig her.
FREDDIE KING. FEBRUARY 1969. Chicago, Illinois. Radio broadcast. Smokin' Incredible blues guitar!!!
THE KINKS. THE SONGS WE SANG FOR AUNTIE (3) Career spanning collections of outtakes, alt stuff, radio appearances, concerts etc. Brilliantly compiled.
THE KINKS. SLUM KIDS. A sweet sounding collection of various BBC broadcasts from 1974 while promoting the Preservation Acts albums.
THE KINKS. THE GREAT LOST KINKS ALBUM. Contains 30 unreleased and rare recordings from 1963-1970 Fun collection of such lost tracks as "Scotty Grotti," "Sand on my Shoes," and "Berkely Mewa."
THE KINKS. RARE ANTHOLOGY; 1963-1997 Demos, Outtakes (2) Unreleased tracks. A generous slice of hard to find Kinks material.
THE KINKS. LIVE AT THE FILMORE WEST 1969. November 27-29, 1969, San Francisco. Groggy show, but not half bad. Has no major rock career been so mangled.
THE KINKS. UNPLUGGED. Ray Davies is one mean acoustic guitar player. From the most underrated band of the original brit invasion. Good mix of old and more recent songs. Perfect sound quality.
THE KINKS. KINKY REHEARSALS. Undated. This is THE good stuff, man Outstanding rehearsal material. Excellent.
THE KINKS. LIVE IN 1972. November 4, 1972. Charleston,Virginia. We simply don't have much from the early 70's from Ray and band and this one delivers the goods.
THE KINKS. MY FAVORITE. Pinched from the King Biscuit Flower House. Nice performance.
THE KINKS. FEBRUARY 18, 1977 (2) Santa Monica, California. Pristine sound, you'd think you were there. This is a expertly paced, played and performed night of amazing music from one of the mightiest bands of the rock era. LOVE it.
THE KINKS. DECEMBER 3, 1977, Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Hey, a very enjoyable show. A warm audience taping
that captures all the warmth and magic of the gig.
THE KINKS. DECEMBER 24, 1977 (2) London. BBC 2 radio broadcast. This is a sweet and triumphant show, They do a mid set 1960's hit thing. Face it, these guys are better than your guys.
ANOTHER ONE ON THE ROAD. August 10, 1970. Detroit, Michigan. Excellent material from the Low Budget Tour.
THE KINKS. DECEMBER 31, 1980 (2) New York City. Radio broadcast. They're back and bigger than ever and in America. Great stuff, no amazing.
THE KINKS. ONE MORE FOR THE ROAD (2) February 27, 1982. Fabulous performance with commercial sound quality. Great stuff.
THE KINKS. ROCKPALAST. April 4, 1982. Essen, Germany. TV broadcast, I think. Great show promoting the Give the People Want They Want Album. Lots of good stuff: Destroyer, Lola etc.
THE KINKS. RIVIERA NIGHTCLUB 1987. 10 Kick ass tracks in perfect sound. Magnifique!
THE KINKS. ELECTRIC LADYLAND. May 12, 1993. New York City. Live broadcast from the famed NYC recording studio.
CHICAGO 1987 FIRST NIGHT (2) MARCH 7, 1987. The complete kick ass show.

THE KINKS. DECEMBER 21, 1994 (2) Stuttgart, German. Sounding. Oh so great!
THE KNACK. OLD WALDORF. April 1979, Late Show. San Francisco. Slick recording of this fun little gadget band.
THE KNACK. DECEMBER 10, 1981. Long Island, New York. Hey fuck you! They are fun. What's wrong with catchy, jumpy rock and roll tunes with a melody. Absolutely nothing.
MARK KNOPFLER. MAY 5, 2005, Brighton, UK. This is a real soundboard and the only way to hear this amazing musician as you need to hear the subtlety of the music and his incredible playing. He's gets mellow, but it's about as mellow as I can go.
MARK KNOPFLER & EMMYLOU HARRIS MAY 26, 2006 (2) Brussels. Clean recording. A mellow nite from this strange duet partners. Lovely.
MARK KNOPFLER. JULY 20, 2008 (2) Syracuse, New York. A nice, but merely acceptable taping from a great player. Vocals buried at times in the mix, but the guitar is strong and clear.
MARK KNOPFLER. NOVEMBER 19, 2012. Washington, DC Nice 1 hour opening gig for the Dylan tour. Very good sound with Mark seeing no need to play the hits with Bob Dylan's name atop the ticket stub. I saw the Boston show with the exact same set list. Some impressive playing.
KRAFTWERK. TOYKO 1981. July 9, 1981. Commercial sound quality, whisper clean. There's really nothing like them - a ghost ship with computers.
KRAFTWERK. COACHELLA FESTIVAL. May 1, 2004. Soundboard. Amazing.
KRAFTWERK. DYNAMO DEUSCHLAND (2) July 15, 1991 with bonus tracks from 12/10/81. This is sound boarder and quite impressive. A techno wonder.
ALLISON KRAUS & UNION STATION. MERLE FEST. May 1, 2005 (2) Wilkesboro, North Carolina. Sweet and charming show captured by a soundboard recording. Good stuff!
ALLISON KRAUSS & UNION STATION. MARCH 24, 1991. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Early show with a different crew of band members. Tyminski gets named checked. Great playing and quite charming. Superb recording.
ALLISON KRAUSS & UNION STATION. AUGUST 21, 1998. Soundboarder. She's an incredible musician and singer, but a bit loopy (in a good way) - an exquisite listen.
ALISON KRAUS AND UNION STATION. MAY 12, 2011. London. Soundboard. Terrific stuff.
LENNY KRAVITZ. DECEMBER 8, 1989. Hamburg, Germany. Nice early show when he was better known as Lisa Bonet's musician husband. Took me awhile to get into, but I certainly enjoyed it.
LENNY KRAVITZ. UNPLUGGED - LIVE USA. Nice collection from 1993 & 1994 - eight acoustic tunes including a bluesy, rootsy "Are You Gonna Go My Way" along with 2 electric bonuses.
LENNY KRAVITZ. LENNY'S BIRTHDAY (2). May 26, 1999. Hey man, this guy IS the real deal. What great rock and roll music. Fabulous tight band, this is great stuff - Lenny should have had a bigger career.
LENNY KRAVITZ. FEBRUARY 28, 2006. Berlin, Germany. Nice recording and Lenny can piece together a good show. Got into this one. He may wear his influences on his sleeves, but they are good influences.
LENNY KRAVITZ. AUGUST 12, 2009 (2) Amsterdam,. Good audience taping. Lenny is living in the past which is precisely where he wants to bunk up. It's all lovey dovey spiritual stuff - sincerely.
KRIS KRISTOPHERSON & RITA COOLIDGE. APRIL 25, 1972, New York City. Live from RCA studio. The legend in all his glory.
KRIS KRISTOPHERSON & FRIENDS. APRIL 22, 1973 (2) Suasalio, California. This was in studio visit by Kris and friends to a radio station. Friends are Rita Coolidge, Doug Sahm, Nick Gravenites and David Blue. Yeah, this is all fantastic.
LAKE STREET DIVE FEBRUARY 27, 2014 (2). Charlotte, NC. Love these kids! They are a lot of fun and play for the right reasons.
MIRANDA LAMPERT. 02 LONDON 2016 (2) Radio Broadcast of the annual Country to Country Festival. Must say, this is good, rocking' country.
BETTYE LAVETTE. JUNE 22, 2006. Bellinzona, Swizterland. Soundboard. A true soul survivor - a sparkplug and terrific talent.
LEAD BELLY JUNE 15, 1949. Austin, Texas. What a remarkable man with his plain, simple voice that shows joy and pain equally. He's a master storyteller & singer on this night. No art or setlist though he opens & closes with "Goodnight Irene."
LEAD BELLY. NOVEMBER 21, 1948. Minneapolis. With that sweet high voice, Mr. Ledbetter was a great one. Think that there's more than one performance here spliced together. No setlist.
LED ZEPPELIN. PB. March 21, 1970. Vancouver. Apparently the first Zep bootleg and first North American show. Pretty good considering it's petigree. PB stands for pure blues.
LED ZEPPELIN. ROYAL ALBERT HALL. January 8, 1970. Liner notes claims legendary performance captured by the soundboard. Those boys played loud.
LED ZEPPELIN. TEXAS POP FEST 1970. The vocals sound a little muddy to me, but Pagey sure can play the axe. 6 Rockin' tunes.
LED ZEPPELN. LIVE AT SOUTHHAMPTON UNIVERSITY (2) January 22, 1973. Damn good sounding boot. But my god, do they get experimental. Yikes. Guys. Still to the fucking songs. They are great, you know. By the way, I might have misordered this as it was downloaded.
LED ZEPPELIN. TYMPANI FOR THE BUTTER QUEEN. (2) May 19, 1973. Fort Worth, Texas. Terrifric soundboarder.
LED ZEPPELIN. LIVE IN DALLAS, 1975. Sweet single disc.
LED ZEPPELIN. EARLS COURT (4). May 24, 1975. Inspired? Ambitious? OR Windy? Artsy fartsy dull? Oh man, you decide. After listening for 3 1/2 hours, it rocks...it rolls...it fucking meanders...You gete some great moments and it puts you to sleep.
LED ZEPPELIN. June 1, 1977. (3) Los Angeles, California. Highly praised audience recording that I have seen titled a few different ways at various Zep web sites. Not sure I got the setlist right, but these boys can sure plug in and play to elevan. The place gots nuts during "Stairway."
LED ZEPPELIN. HEINEKEN. (2) July 7, 1980. The last performance - need we say more.
LED ZEPPELN. DECEMBER 10, 2007 (2) London, England. It's the big reunion show - you know the biggest event in the history of the western world. An imperfect recording. Love the crowd singing along to "Rock and Roll."
SEAN LENNON. February 12, 2007, The Rainbow Club, Milano, Italy. Capable, but frankly dull for my tastes. Sean likes to do this swoony, vocal thing that bores. Anyway, this is a Japanese Radio Broadcast in high quality.
ANNIE LENNOX. UNPLUGGED. Not sure of all of the sources on this excellent sounding discs. I'm sure it's the MTV show, but you get a bunch of other stuff as well.0
ANNIE LENNOX. AUGUST 16, 2007. London, England. A sweet 4 tune performance backed by the BBC orchestra showing off 3 new tunes along with "Sweet Dreams." Still a hot babe.
ANNIE LENNOX. BBC RADIO. March 13, 2009. Charmlng interview show with songs.
JERRY LEE LEWIS. AUGUST 9, 1979, New York City. WTIX Radio broadcast. Nice sounding show, the legend in attendance.
JERRY LEE LEWIS.. AUGUST 27, 2007. Helsinki, Finland. Sadly, the vocal is buried too deep into the mix. You can hear the band nicely, but hardly the Killer. Bummer.
LITTLE FEAT. DEMOS AND OUTTAKES 1971-1977 Nice little collection of stuff.
LITTLE FEAT. MARCH 20, 1973. Decent but sketchy audience taping. May copy has a couple of digital flaws and a repeated track. However, worth it for the great Lowell George story about getting flipped off by Howlin' Wolf.
LITTLE FEAT. EBBETS FIELD. July 19, 1973. Just a setlist for this good set.
LITTLE FEAT. SEPTEMBER 19,1974. Hempstead, Long Island. Whisper clean soundboard. Holy, moly when these guys are good, they are great. I should listen to them more often.
LITTLE FEAT. OH ATLANTA! (Alternate Version). May 23, 1975. I'd call it a substandard soundboard. Bonnie Raitt and David Souther came out to sing background on a couple.
LITTLE FEAT OCTOBER 18, 1975. Rochester, New York. Another fun show from this outfit.
LITTLE FEAT. BOSTON 1975 (2) October 31, 1975. That's halloween. WBCN recording. A whole lot of fun. Great band, great show.
LITTLE FEAT. MAY 10, 1976 (2) WASHINGTON, DC. Soundboard. Good stuff. How good were they? Very good!
LITTLE FEAT. JUNE 11, 1978 (2) Portland, Oregon. Soundboard. Fine show.
LITTLE FEAT. LOWELL RIGHT THROUGH THE NIGHT (2) Nagoya, Japan, July 1, 1978. Shit Lowell died just less than a year later. Excellent sounding disc.
LITTLE FEAT. OCTOBER 14, 1978 (2) Grand Rapids, Michigan. Soundboard proof of this band's musical chops.
LITTLE FEAT. FAT MAN IN NEW CASTLE. 1978 in the UK. Don't we miss Lowell George, lots of good stuff from a band that time has forgot.
LITTLE VILLAGE. SOLAR SEX PANEL. Crystal clean soundboard with the most talent assembled this side of the Traveling Wilburys. This is really a John Hiatt led supergroup that should have made a bigger splash than they did.
LITTLE FEAT. BOSTON. APRIL 26, 1992. Boston, MA WBCN Broadcast. Great stuff from this wondrous little band. Love it.
THE COMPLETE LIVE AID CONCERT (15) July 13, 1985. Here it is the global jukebox, the entire enchalada everything.
NILS LOFGREN. MARCH 27, 1976 (Early Show), Paul's Mall, Boston, Massachusetts. WBCN broadcast. Wondrous gig from an artist in his solo prime.
NILS LOFGREN. JANUARY 9, 1982 (2) Boston. Another great WBCN broadcast. Love it.
NILS LOFGREN. AUGUST 18, 2001. At the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, New Jersey. This is a flawed soundboard that seemed to warm up as the ear adjusts or as the night progressed - but the vocals are up front and center. Not as good as the commercial live released (Get 'em all!). Bruce Springsteen drops in for the final 4 tunes to close out the night.
NILS LOFGREN. SEPTEMBER 11, 2010 (2) Bay Shore, New York. Very enjoyabel show by Nils with a very good, straight take of "The Star Spangled Banner." The guy is an amazing guitar player.
LOS LOBOS. DECEMBER 31, 1985 (2) San Francisco, California. Soundboard. New Year's eve. Fantastic!
LOS LOBOS. FEBRUARY 25, 1987. Amsterdam. FM Broadcast. Nice, clean show from these East LA roots rockers.
LOS LOBOS. HOLLYWOOD 1992 (2) Los Angeles, California. Radio broadcast from Capital Records headquarters on the Sunset Strip with friends: Rickie Lee Jones, John Hiatt, Dave Alvin, Leo Kotke, Syd Straw, Lalo Guerrero, Fermin Herrera. It's a great show of music, the DJs who host are a couple of fools.
LOB LOBOS. JUNE 19, 1999. (2) Recorded at Lupo's in Providence, I've seen those guys there, but not that night. Solid set.
LOS LOBOS. LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY. August 18, 1999. A soundboard that I wish was an audience taping. Not sure that the tech people got the knobs right, it just needs some warmth. Very goo, just not as good as I would hope considering the sound quality.
LOS LOBOS. WILD MAGNOLIAS. February 26 & 27, 2000, San Francisco. These homeboys are favorites of min. Nice, lean recording with friend, Bonnie Raitt, steppin in on slide guitar on a couple. Atleast these guys should be bigger than Linkin Park. What an immense, textured and rich sound.
LOS LOBOS. JUNE 16, 2000 (2) Santa Ynez Valley, California. Live Oak Music Festival. Wonderful soundboard only interrupted by a lost child announcement. Lots of mexican stuff so you have to be in the mood for it and I was.
LOS LOBOS. APRIL 1, 2008 (2) Vancouver. Sturdy taping with a generous setlist. Opened with "Kiko."
LOS LOBOS. APRIL 12, 2008 (2) Sparks, Nevada. The Mexican Stones in a nice audience recording. They should be in the stadiums too.
LOS LOBOS. JUNE 30, 1999 (2) Portland, Oregon. Strong audience taping - I won't complain. Some interesting covers: "Dear Mr. Fantasy," "Shoot Out the Light," "Bertha."
CHARLIE LOUVIN. OCTOBER 3, 2008. Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Nice enuf audience taping, incomplete show. Music comes through okay, but you need to strain to hear some of the banter.
LYLE LOVETT. ACOUSTIC DEMOS 1983. So lucky to get this.
LYLE LOVETT & HIS LARGE BAND. STUDIO DEMOS, 1986. Great stuff, man.
LYLE LOVETT. JULY 31, 1988. (2) Chicago, Illinois. Fantastic recording and show! Great Fun! One small source glitch.
LYLE LOVETT & HIS LARGE BAND. November 15, 1994 (2) Upper Darby Pennsylvania. Superb soundboard recording. Oft mellow, always good.
LYLE LOVETT. AUSTIN CITY LIMITS & MORE. December/1996. 9 super clean cuts from a man too cool for country and too country for cool. Homemade art.
LYLE LOVETT. WEST END CULTURAL CENTER. October 23, 1997 (2) A real treat. An awesome acoustic show - a soundboarder. Excellent takes on "Church," "Fat Babies," "If I Had a Boat" Sheit...it's all good.
LYLE LOVETT. MAY 7, 1999 (2) Des Moines, Iowa. Terrific sound boarder from this unique gent.
LYLE LOVETT, JOHN HIATT, GUY CLARK & JOE ELY. FEBRUARY 17, 2003. Santa Cruz, California. As Guy states as an introduction, it's four guys in your livinig room playing songs. It's an extraordinary show with the kind of spirit that can't be manufactured. Well done boys!
LYLE LOVETT + JOHN HIATT. February 20, 2008 (2) Acceptable audience recording -certainly the music shines thru - you have to turn up the volume to catch the stage chat. This is two friends trading songs, stories and jokes, what's better.
LYLE LOVETT & JOHN HIATT February 1, 2010. Zurich, Switzerland. Another night of mirth and music. Love those guys.
LYLE LOVETT. APRIL 30, 2011 (2) North Wilkesboro, North Carolina. Soundboard. Yeah, it's fantastic.
LENE LOVICH FEBRUARY 18 1980. Vancouver. FM Radio broadcast of this odd bird. She's part of the great story of the explosion of strangeness and creativity that the late 70's brought. Don't forget about Lene you love itl
NICK LOWE AND HIS NOISE TO GO. BBC ROCK HOUR. June 27, 1982, London. Sweet radio recording of the cool man. Paul Carrack is in tow. Excellent.
NICK LOWE. LIVE AT THE BIRCHMERE. September 18, 2007. Delightful solo show via NPR - one big file. Warm, witty and clever, 'nuff said.
LYNYRD SKYNRD CARDIFF WALES. November 4, 1975. 12 rockin' tunes in perfect commercial sound from the original crew. I'll tell ya, these longhairs can play. Artwork doesn't quite match set info.
LORETTA LYNN. GILLEY'S 1989. Pasadena, California. Nice radio broadcast, commercials are clipped off.
LORETTA LYNN. SEPTEMBER 13, 2007 (2) Northhampton, Massachusetts. An acceptable audience taping by a wondrous performer and artist. She's a charmer. 1 track has some surface noise.
SHELBY LYNN. MARCH 27, 2000. Amsterdam. Sweet little, short soundboard. Gorgeous recording.
SHELBY LYNN. APRIL 28, 2000 (2) House of Blues, Los Angeles, California. She is one hot dish - makes my blood boil And, I must say, a great musical talent. This is a superbly performed soundboarder.
SHELBY LYNNE. NOVEMBER 12, 2001. The Supper Club, New York City Wowee, this is a killer set in soundboard. Amazing show from one hot number.
SHELBY LYNNE. NOVEMBER 17, 2008 (2) Wilmington, Delaware. Just a little too much distance in the recording, but still acceptable.
SHELBY LYNNE. NOVEMBER 29, 2008 (2) St. Paul, Minnesota. A terrific, warm show. I know she is supposed to be a nut, but she comes off very much down to earth.
