San Francisco 2014 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Outside Lands Festival, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, CA; August 9, 2014. Very good audience recording.

At 63 (he turns 64 in October), one would think that Tom Petty would have taken the money and run. But that’s not the Tom Petty fans have long revered. As Billboard pointed out, Tom Petty is still “passionate and kinda pissed”. His latest album, Hypnotic Eye, talks about the unchecked greed of the 1 per cent; about growing old and he has even written a song about the Catholic Church’s sex scandals. While Playin’ Dumb didn’t fit into the new album, the song appeared as a bonus cut on the vinyl and blu-ray release of Hypnotic Eye.

And what makes Hypnotic Eye that much sweeter is that, after all these years, it is Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.

Thanks to the taper; and to blg for sharing the tracks at Dime.

“Just when I though I was out, they pulled me back in.” Michael Corleone’s plaintive line from the “Godfather” is Obama’s tune today. He’s only returning to Iraq for purely humanitarian reasons… never mind that the US armed and trained ISIS in Jordan to overthrow Syria’s regime. By Eric Margolis.

Armed humanitarianism 2.0. That’s our new western version of old-fashioned 19th century imperialism, now feminized by President Barack Obama’s lady advisors, painted pink and accompanied by the kind of soft piano music you hear in ads for women’s products.

Last week, the Obama administration latched onto the plight of Iraq’s Yazidis who were being persecuted by those awful ISIS folks – just in jolly good time to divert attention from the massacre in Gaza.

Inside Moonlight [Artisan, 1CD]
Sessions for Moonlight Sinatra; November 29-30, 1965. Excellent soundboard.

From dartmansworldofwonder.blogspot:

[Moonlight Sinatra] was released in 1966 and was worked around the theme that every song on the album had something to do with the moon. There was “Moonlight Becomes You”, “I Wished On The Moon”, “Moon Love”, “Reaching For The Moon” and so on and so forth. The title of the album is a play on Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata”. The orchestra was led by the great Nelson Riddle. Here are those recording sessions from November 29 and 30 of 1965.

Scarlett Johannsson is the chilling alien who develops a conscience in Jonathan Glazer’s Under The Skin (2013), but achieves uninspired transcendence in Luc Besson’s Lucy (2014). Critic After Dark Noel Vera reviews.

Scarlett Johannsson in Jonathan Glazer’s Under The Skin (2013) starts out the way she ends in Lucy (2014), as a blank-faced nonhuman. Only in Under it’s the start of a Kubrickian take on the vampire film, Glazer’s best-effort attempt to adapt an unadaptable novel by Michel Faber (which I haven’t read, for the record).

The first half is really the better part; after an opening involving planetary alignments a la 2001 (sequence ending with a closeup of an eyeball that could as easily be Dullea’s), the film follows a young woman’s predatory practices as she lures men one by one into various apartments and houses, to end up in an eerie reflective pool (a dimensional door, I’m guessing, leading to the home planet of whatever intelligence is directing the lure).

New York 1973 [no label, 1CD]
Live at Madison Square Garden, New York, NY; January 23, 1973. Good to fairly good audience recording. Vinyl rip, some pops and crackles.

Posted at

I had orchestra seats in row 24. Neil Young played a great set until someone came on stage and handed him a piece of paper. The note indicated the following: “At 12:30 Paris time today [Tuesday], January 23, 1973, the Agreement on Ending the War and Restoring Peace in Vietnam was initialed by Dr Henry Kissinger on behalf of the United States, and Special Adviser Le Duc Tho on behalf of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.”

All Neil said was, “the war is over”. Which erupted into cheers. This did not change his song set as he led the band into “Southern Man”. A memorable evening.

Harvest had been out almost a year… guitarist Danny had OD-ed in November 1972 and here is Neil Young, who was devastated by the death, out on the road again.

Thanks to giona for sharing the tracks at Dime.

giona noted:

I transferred this show from one of the rarest bootlegs of Neil Young. I purchased a large collection of bootlegs from an old collector and I taped the bootleg because the quality of vinyl was poor and easy to damage. A few years later, in the late ’90s, I purchased a Philips standalone 770 and I burned a CD directly from the bootleg. There are several crackles and pops but less than on a previously uploaded version.

BOB DYLAN – TOKYO 1978 (Mr Peach)

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Sunday 17 August 2014 at

Live In Japan Vol 3 [Tarantura TCDBD-3-1/2, 2CD]
Live at the Budokan Dai-Hall, Tokyo, Japan; February 23, 1978. Very good audience recording by Terry Peach.

In the ’70s, while Mike Millard was wow-ing fans with his “field” recordings, Mr (Terry) Peach was doing the same in Japan. In fact, Mr Peach has also been referred to as the “Mike Millard of Japan”. Here is a 1978 Mr Peach show for your enjoyment and comparison, with the June 1978 Los Angeles show.

Thanks to cevau for sharing the tracks on the net.

gsparaco reviewed in 2012 at

Bob Dylan always sought to reinterpret and rearrange his songs. But the 1978 Street Legal era remains one of the most interesting and radical. Although Dylan began the year with his first trip to Japan for 11 shows, the most recent releases from this year document the European and American shows from later in the year. Even the releases in the past decade documenting the Japan tour focus upon the Osaka and Tokyo shows from later in the tour. Dylan played the first three shows at Budokan in Tokyo. Audience tapes have been in circulation, but none have found their way onto any release. Tarantura have rectified the situation by releasing uncirculated Mr Peach tapes for these shows.

YES – LA FORUM 1977 (Mike Millard)

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Saturday 16 August 2014 at

Los Angeles 1977 [Mike Millard Master Tape/RMCH Remaster, 2CD]
Live at the Los Angeles Forum, Los Angeles, CA; September 23, 1977. Very good audience recording.

One more from the Mike Millard collection…

Thanks to floydart for the remastering efforts and for sharing the show at Dime.

Thanks also to SpammythePig for sharing the front cover.


Other versions of this show have been posted… before. This is not a re-seed or re-hash of those, but an entirely new upgrade from the master tapes… On several occasions before he passed away, Millard let a close friend come to his residence and transfer a number of his masters to DAT while they were hanging out. This show is one of those master > DAT transfers.

This is Mike’s mint, raw master. Please note that it has not been equalized or remastered. Since I do not have any boots of this show, I cannot comment on how it compares to them. To me the sound quality is excellent, but as always, song samples are provided so that you can decide for yourself. As many of you already know, Millard’s recordings are known for their quality. Hope you enjoy this gem.

This is an RMCH Remaster that is not part of the PRRP series or the RMCH Series.

Master tape> dat > dat > cd-r > Bias Peak Pro 5.2.1 > XACT > flac

- Boost deficient frequencies/EQ.
- Correct speed.
- Verify pitch correct.
- Correct phasing.
- Adjust stereo field and center sound.
- Correct inappropriate volume boosts *
- Correct auto-record level effects **
- Reduce audience contribution ***
- Repair many audible gaps and single channel dropouts
- Adjust dynamics
- Light noise reduction
- Re-track given 14 songs in 10 source files. ****

This remaster should be considered an upgrade to the PRRPSAE 05 version. More advanced software and techniques were used during this project. A great deal of time was devoted to repairing or removing as many clicks, pops and other tape errors as possible, using non-destructive techniques. The audience noise and loud claps were more extensively addressed in this version.
* 18 segments were found to have an abrupt, audible amplitude boost of 3-6dB. The volume of the sound and the hiss both clearly increased in these segments. These were corrected, eliminating this distraction.
** The recording system made frequent adjustments to record volume such as attenuation after a loud clap. These were corrected as much as possible.
*** The crowd was very enthusiastic that night. Frequently yells, loud claps and whistles were present during the songs. Where present, they were repaired or attenuated as much as possible. Most applause found between songs was left unaltered.
**** Remove redundant sections and track as continuous show.

Rehearsals 1982 [no label, 2CD]
The High Road world tour rehearsals, summer 1982. Excellent soundboard.

It’s interesting that The Spin Alternative Record Guide saw Roxy Music’s Avalon (1982) as “one of the all-time great makeout infernos, a synthesized version of Al Green’s Call Me, Van Morrison’s Moondance, and João Gilberto’s Amoroso.” For some, Avalon also saw the rise of Bryan Ferry (now, doesn’t he sound like David Bryne?) as a crooner, as opposed to an art-rock Roxy Music. Still, Andy Mackay’s saxophone remains haunting; and the album remains a favourite for many.

Thanks to original seeder sww1975 (Dime); and to overend for keeping the show alive at mindwarppavilion.

Original notes:

This is a real beauty! Check out this awesome stereo soundboard recording, which includes all the studio chat in between songs (you need to listen closely to hear it though!) and occasional false starts on songs too! It was only ‘Eight Miles High’ that never made it to the final setlist on this tour. ‘More Than This’ and ‘The Space Between’ was played only a handful of dates too. Track one has been left out, due to the fact that the ‘intro’ track was an official release, which had just basic instrument tuning and sound-checking over it.

Thanks also to stepeanut for the artwork.

THE ROLLING STONES – LA FORUM 1975 (July 09 – Mike Millard)

Blogged under Uncategorized by bigozine3 on Friday 15 August 2014 at

Love You Live Los Angeles [Dogs & Cats 049, 2CD]
Live at the Inglewood Forum, Los Angeles, CA; July 9, 1975. Very good to excellent audience recording by Mike Millard.

Before The Rolling Stones in 2012 deigned it fit to release only the July 13, 1975 show (LA Friday) as part of their bootleg series, Mike Millard’s tapes were generally regarded as the best for the 1975 Stones’ shows. Millard recorded from the audience all five concerts at the LA Forum on his trusty Nakamichi deck. It is likely that these 1975 shows were all recorded by the Stones.

Thanks to Erik Snow for sharing this at Hungercity in 2008; and to mr breeze for keeping it alive at The Traders’ Den.

Original notes:

One of the best recordings and performances from Tour Of The Americas 1975. Absolutely excellent show
Mike Millard is the taper of this one.

Compared to “LA Fog” (VGP), this DAC has a little more hiss – but also a but more punch and power (IMO). THere’s no BIG difference though… but I prefer the DAC release.

Note that “Sympathy For The Devil” was used for “Love You Live”, after editing and overdubbing.

Crows From The Closet [Totonka, 1CD]
Live at The Troubador, West Hollywood, CA; January 8, 1994. Excellent soundboard.

This was an impromptu show featuring Chris Robinson (The Black Crowes); Marc Ford (The Black Crowes); Jimmy Ashhurst (The JuJu Hounds); Eric Bobo (Cypress Hill) and Andy Sturmer (Jellyfish).

Thanks to BZBeatle for sharing this on the net.

Bill Glahn, Live! Music Review:

Back to Crows From The Closet – Chris Robinson announces that his basement is too small to rehearse in so the band wanted to practice in front of an audience. But the band doesn’t practice any of their own material, instead opting to place their own stamp on a variety of “classic rock” staples and a few long lost gems. And it all gets captured on a superbly mixed soundboard recording. You won’t find anything like this on any other Black Crowes bootleg. There’s even a few guest appearances… Crows From The Closet is an all-around masterpiece in the best tradition of bootlegs.
