Excellent show. The band is hot. Plants vocals on Dazed are a little unusual. Only Plants vocals prevent this from being Ex-/Ex quality. They have an annoying tinny edge to them.

Woodstock, August 19, 1969:

(Woodstock was 17th of August 1969, not 19th as the bootleg says. Also of note is that the source tape changes to a different one at 00:01:41 in middle of "Don't Ya Tell Henry.")

This 3 CD The Band bootleg was released in 1997 and should not be confused with the official Across the Great Divide box set. This is the third release in The Genuine Bootleg Series, for some reason sub-titled Take 4. The two first bootleg boxes, The Genuine Bootleg Series, and The Genuine Bootleg Series, Take 2, were mainly filled with Dylan material. Take 4 only has a small amount of Dylan content that is available elsewhere. A Take 3 CD set, all Dylan content, was released in 1999.

As usual for the Genuine Bootleg Series, this one continues the same tradition of high production values with multiple gatefold glossy-color sleeves. It also sports inner disc sleeves (each w/color pics + tracklist) and a 36-page booklet containing full text of the July '91 Goldmine article along with more photos and the track listings. All of the Genuine Bootleg Series have been reissued a few times, in cardboard sleeves and jewel boxes, and The Genuine Bootleg Series Vol 4 seem to exist also under the title Statue of Liberty.

58 tracks in all, including early Hawks material, outtakes from 1965 - 1967 The Basement Tapes and Big Pink sessions, outtakes from The Band, Rock of Ages, and Planet Waves, various Band live recordings, bits of a 1988 Levon Helm concert, and three demos for Jericho. A nice set with good sound quality.

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

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

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

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

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

NOTES FROM PETE:
The origins of this copy of the recording are as follows:
I went to University in Sheffield in the UK in October 1981. Sometime in my first year there (not sure if it was 81 or 82) I noticed an advert on a noticeboard in the University's Student Union building by a guy offering rare tapes of Pink Floyd and a number of other bands. I bought this recording on a TDK AD C60 and C120 Cassette (see the photos) from the guy who turned out to be a post-graduate. From my recollection (and it is 27 years ago!) the tapes I got were from his first gen copy from the masters. They are definitely not from vinyl (you can just tell!!!) and it predates the CD or CDR bootleg era. Ironically I think the cassettes have survived well because I only played them a few times as I was more into Stones and Clapton at the time. I guess it could be as little as four or five times prior to me finally capturing them as digital files.I was prompted to transfer it to digital format by two things:

1) I downloaded a couple of the bootlegs from the same date via the internet and I thought, "This is not half as good quality as I remember my tapes being"
2) A friend was clearing out his loft (attic) and offered me a little used NAD tapedeck, so now I had no excuse not to investigate my hunch that I had a better copy of this recording

The finished item is superb. I have really enjoyed getting back into this whole 68-72 Floyd era. I think the desire to get the best version of Sheffield 1970 out to the fan-base has made me go back and take an even greater interest in the legitimate and (ever expanding) bootleg stuff from this era.

A final, but very important note. A big "thank you" to John Johnstone (a colleague from work) who suggested I offered up the raw WAVs of the tapes to the Harvested Team. What an excellent piece of advice!


NOTES FROM MOB:
Pete's tapes were in really good condition, despite their age. The original recording was done with mono equipment, and the music was well centered between the 2 channels of the tapes (generally, old tapes tend to have fluctuations between channels, even if the original recording is mono, but it was not the case here). The hiss was very stable throughout the tapes, with almost no sign of warble.

The main problem with the recording was the speed. The tapes ran too fast, and the speed was not constant throughout the show (this is a well known problem of old analog tape recorders, very dependent on the battery levels fluctuations during a concert). Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast was almost at correct speed, but the speed of the following tracks increased progressively during the songs. The real difficulties began with A Saucerful Of Secrets, because the batteries were probably unloading faster. The speed was different depending on the part of the song, so I had to apply speed correction on a case by case basis. Atom Heart Mother was even worse, the very end really too fast.

After dealing with the speed issues, I carefully applied slight EQ to enhance some particular frequencies that were buried in the original recording (probably due to the original recorder and mics characteristics). An important note is that I didn't try to dehiss the recording. As a result, this remaster still has a good amount of hiss. After all, this is a 2nd gen and you cannot have a significant reduction of hiss without degrading the music clarity. Moreover, I wanted to keep the sound as natural as possible, because the best sounding version of that concert until now was the highly processed "Disgusting Hardly Music", remastered from Pete's tapes too, but with a lot of NR applied. I wanted this new remaster to be a nice alternative to DHM: people who can't stand hiss and don't mind about digital NR artefacts can still enjoy DHM, while people who prefer unprocessed recordings should definitely adopt "Rise & Shine" (of course it's not striclty "unprocessed" because I corrected the speed, applied some EQ and carefully cleaned the drop-outs and tape flaws, but anyway this still sounds "natural", unlike the other versions I heard).

As usual with all my remasters, I also manually cleaned every tape flaw that I could detect (cuts, small drop-outs, pops, crackles ...).

Here are the comparisons we did with the other RoIOs from that concert:
- "Allen's Psychedelic Breakfast" (from Circus Sun APSB 1270 A/B LP): full of vinyl clicks and pops
- "A Psychedelic Night" (Triangle Records PYCD 038 & 039): this silver bootleg CD is muffled and denoised to death
- "Alan's Psychedelic Christmas": 3rd or 4th gen from VHS, too dehissed
- "Pink's Psychedelic Last Night" (Highland HL176): again, very processed (NR)
- "Alan's Psychedelic Master Tape" (Ayanami-227): certainly not from mastertape (Ayanami often claims to have the masters while it's wrong) and over-processed
- "1st Gen": this RoIO is the only other "unprocessed" version apparently circulating, but it sounds more distant than Pete's 2nd gen; I guess the title "1st gen" is not correct, it's more probably 2nd or 3rd gen.
- "Disgusting Hardly Music" (FOS-CDR-001 ): music is very clear but NR artifacts are obvious

To summarize, we think that this new release "Rise & Shine" has the following benefits:
- it's the only Sheffield RoIO with "natural" sound (apart from the so-called "1st gen" which is sounding much more distant)
- it's the only Sheffield RoIO with correct speed for all the tracks
- it's the only Sheffield RoIO with the drop-outs and tape flaws corrected (in particular, you can check the very beginning of Careful's scream: the abrupt cut in the master recording is magically fixed ;-) )

Thanks to Pete for approaching us with this project and supplying us with the great source material. And, of course, thanks to MOB, the James Guthrie of bootlegs!
Enjoy and share freely!

Pink Floyd, New Pre-FM Master (with Echoes!) 1974-11-16 Wembley 
If you're a Pink Floyd collector, you probably have several versions of this particular recording. However, you've never heard it this good--and indeed, you've never heard the pre-FM soundboard 28-minute version of Echoes that appears for the first time in this set. 
This is a noticeable upgrade over the EX roio called "Brain Damage" that was torrented on the Groove nearly a year ago.

These were EAC'ed from the original silvers by the person who brought this into circulation this week (thanks bbatnifty!) 

Here is the text file:

This is taken from the original pre-broadcast master tapes including encore "Echoes".

Comments Justin Cook:
Darren Glen put in numerous hours at the studio remastering this bootleg, using Lovetown Melbourne - Night Two as his primary source material. The result is outstanding. Again, crowd noise is present--there is no way to eliminate that - but the vocals are at the forefront and all of the instruments can be clearly heard. This is definitely one of the best first leg Loevtown recordings available. It is infinitely better than Tonight I Feel Drunk and personally, I like it better than the raw sound offered in Lovetown Melbourne - Night Two.

Comments Darren Glen:
There are three different recordings of this show in the archive, all from different positions within the arena and with different equipment. By far the best recording was probably a transfer to CD-R from the original source tape...this version sounds like it was recorded with excellent mics and to a recording unit that wasnt plagued with Auto Gainwhich is good, as this allows the recording to retain excellent punch and dynamics. However I imagine that the mics used were not flat in response, leaving the sound seriously lacking in bottom end, and with a fairly harsh top end, and the recording was playing at the wrong speed (too fast). Unfortunately this recording was also missing 3 1/2 songs....but half of 'I Will Follow' remained. All of these anomalities were corrected and the frequency balance restored to a full, clean and tight response. The second recording was from a different location and using less superior equipment, but fortunately the missing songs from the better version above were in complete form here. This show was on a first generation TDK SA tape and was fully restored (NR, EQ, Speed Adj, etc) before the missing songs were re-balanced and slotted into the above recording in the correct position to make a complete recording for the project...entitled Bad at its Best...this is without a doubt the most incredible performance of Bad in the archive....and better than any of the versions of Bad from 87 shows i've heard as well. Bonos voice roars as he puts all of the singing phrases that he uses individually in different versions of Bad all into this one performance, and flawlessly. He ends up singing in all 3 sections right to the very end of the song just to fit them all in, instead of leaving the last section an instrumental as is usually the case. (This extension only happened one other time, in Tokyo.)

(Soundboard FLAC)

1970-02-08 Boston, Massachusetts Boston Tea Party 15 Lansdowne Street (M1-SBD* BostonGold/CoolSonics TRUE STEREO upgrade versions)

§§§ UNISSUED Tea Party jam experience in aural technicolor §§§
§§§ From BostonGold's 1st generation reel by way of The Florida Kid §§§
§§§ Complete true stereo(!) upgrade: Remasters with & without EQ plus raw tape & new bonus version §§§

*** ABSOLUTELY NOT the same as Joe Walsh & Clapton "Encore Jam" on Fleetwood Mac "Live At The Boston Tea Party" box set ***
*** Also NOT the same as "On We Jam" on CD3 from that set ***
*** Uploaded with DIME Mods' permission after they also compared & verified this jam is NOT commercially released ***

°°° In my opinion, for the best continuous enjoyable listening, go directly to #1 °°°
°°° For me, the EQ'd BostonGold version UPGRADES circulating copies as it's a continuous, true stereo, warmer, remastered source °°°

=== DOWNLOADS as Fleetwood Mac & Clapton 1970-02-05 but subsequently corrected to the above ===

TWO "NEW" !completely true stereo! VERSIONS of the unissued Tea Party Fleetwood Mac & Eric Clapton jam
01. Unissued Jam Version 1 - BostonGold remastered & speed correction & EQ (16:53)
02. Unissued Jam Version 2 - BostonGold remastered & speed correction & NO EQ (16:53)
PLUS:
03. Unissued Jam Version 3 - Sidewindersf version NEWLY remastered WITH new BostonGold 6 minute ending with more extreme EQ (16:52)
04. Unissued Jam Version 4 - BostonGold RAW tape (dithered down from 48/16 to 44.1) (17:00).

Total Time (all 4 versions) ::: 1:07:37

::: LOVELY, excellent stereo soundboard (*tho' possibly miked on stage). Check samples for aural audits or brief byte-size blasts o' bliss, but you really gotta hear the whole enchilada for real satisfaction.
::: BostonGold is an ALL ONE SOURCE 1st gen. all-stereo reel which is less bright & distorted than the commonly circulating sidewindersf version & doesn't have the dull areas, glitches, tape fatigue spots, poor mono patches & ending, and has a different sound to it anyway.
::: Warts: Some light distortion from signal overload in parts, especially in the 2nd half (on all circulating versions). Slightly muffled. Bit of de ole hiss. More info below.
::: Boston Tea Party ::: February 5,6,7 James Gang opened for Fleetwood Mac. February 8&9 James Gang opened for Delaney & Bonnie & Friends with Eric Clapton.
::: DATE/LINE-UP: Sometimes alternately listed as Fleetwood Mac with Clapton 1970-02-05 and as February 8or9 with Green joining Clapton at/after a Delaney&Bonnie Tea Party gig (more on this below).
::: Multi-version set offered since it's one track & it seemed much better to have all 'new' versions together rather than uploading 4 different ones.
::: COMPARISON CLAUSE: Nothing on the tracker now but different than previously uploaded versions by Toy_Boat, sidewindersf, all boot versions (& hezekiahx2?) . Details below.
::: Many of you probably only hear a small percent of what you download, but this is REALLY exceptional, some very hip sh*t. Sit down, turn up yr stereo & take a heartfelt listen - with volume!

Recording Information ::: stereo soundboard (*or possibly on stage microphones) -> unknown stereo equipment -> master stereo 2 track reel-to-reel -> 1st generation (7&1/2 ips?) stereo reel -> circa 2008 transfer on unknown equipment to digital data DVD-R as a 48kHz/16bit wav file. (*Stage mikes possibility based on extraneous sounds in a couple of places & noise after jam). EXCEPT.... Version 3, the first 2/3rds has one additional reel generation (noted as 2nd Gen Maxell tape @7&1/2 ips on a Technics 1506 > Tascam Professional CD Recorder > EAC > wav > flac) & other unknown subsequent digital generations & tinkering.

Playback 2013-10-12 ::: 48kHz/16bit wav file -> Audacity (normalisation to remove DC offset, channel/phase alignment, fades, manual one-at-a-time glitch / dropout / pop / click / dullspot repairs, volume adjustments, speed fixes as noted, equalisation only on versions 1 & 3 as noted), dithered down to 44.1 -> CD Wave (track splits) -> Trader's Little Helper -> yr ears. First uploaded week of 2013-12-14.

FURTHER MASTERING NOTES ::: I spent MANY hours remastering & removing/repairing every tiny blemish I could. Also, if my EQ doesn't sound good to you, work with the remastered non-EQ version I've included & do your own thing... I suggest playing #1 for a warm, most enjoyable experience, but my ears ain't your ears. A screenshot of my EQ curve for #1 is included with upload. If you really like the old sidewindersf version (which is too bright & distorted for me), you can now hear it as version #3 here with many glitches & volume issues fixed AND with the mono patches & mono ending removed & substituted with a new BostonGold stereo ending (BostonGold portion more heavily EQ'd than on #1 to try to closer match the sidewindersf sound). Original Toy_Boat & some other versions were 17:25 with incorrect speed (3.5% slow). Spectral analysis speed correction best average for the BostonGold reel seemed to be around -.41% but I liked the sidewindersf pitched version better against my pitchpipe & it still looked good in spectrum analysis, so I went with a match to that version at -.31%.

The previously DIMED toy_boat version which was pitched (and more?) was uploaded by sidewindersf, tho' it looks like the original upload was by hezekiahx2 back in 2004 in the pre-BOT easytree daze & I don't have that one. Someone did the mono patches before toy_boat/sidewindersf & then at some point some EQ (possibly after the original hezekiahx2 upload & before sidewindersf got hold of it from what the notes say). Also, while it is brighter than the non-EQ'd Boston Gold version, the seemingly overbrightened sound exacerbates the distortion. Also the bad mono patches from the lesser quality source on & off for the last third of the jam (6 minutes) are VERY distracting. It also has some non-repairable dropouts, as well as some dullspots & low volume areas & some tape damaged areas, almost none of which appear on the Boston Gold reel. However, I also have done a new remastered without EQ sidewindersf version (repairing volume issues & glitches) & added a BostonGold patch from 10:36 to the end (with some additional EQ on the BostonGold portion) to get a completely stereo merged version from both.

Boston Gold's 1st gen reel should definitely be completely raw with no EQ. However, the sidewindersf (much brighter) version was ostensibly from a 2nd generation (supposedly no EQ) reel (the stereo part anyway, which presumably was from hezekiahx2 originally), & I must say the transfer process must have been radically different. The wav forms are extremely different in parts, there is much more visible distortion on the wav form in many places &, as stated, it looks like it was EQ'd at some point (to my non-professional eyes) - otherwise the transfer reel to reel machines were very different along the way with what they did to the wav. As stated, I don't have the original hezekiahx2(?) uploaded version which was supposedly 16:51, so it's not clear to me when the mono portions were added in and/or when the thing went off-speed so drastically, or the EQ was used.

Line-up (unconfirmed except Green & Clapton!) ::: Peter Green - electric guitar // Eric Clapton - electric guitar // Jim Gordon - drums // Donnie Scott (Tea Party employee) - congas // Joe Walsh(?) - electric guitar (or maybe bass?) // ? - electric bass.

The above line-up (and date) is still a work in progress. For one thing I don't see how Peter Green can say he was kind of tricked into it & Clapton just appeared with Jim Gordon if it wasn't a Mac gig...

At the end the announcer says something which for some 40 years people have assumed was "Jim Wells" (mistakenly for "Junior Wells") but I don't think he says "Jim" at all. "Mr Eric Clapton... Peter Green... x?x?x?x?x?... All right...". Maybe he says something like "Hear well" or "Here it was" if he isn't giving another name? I tried a LOT of experimenting but couldn't really clear it up enough. I even tried to contact the guy by phone, as we have his name from the Byrds Tea Party gig & it's the same announcer... no luck. There are other transciptions online that claim the last 'name' is "Fleetwood Mac" but that is certainly not correct either. More line-up comments below.

Nothing here ever commercially released to my knowledge. If I'm wrong, please advise & I'll take it all offline.

CoolSonics 271 ::: Thanks to the original taper & traders! This is sourced from BostonGold's reel by way of the Florida Kid. We owe both of them a lot of credit for many great recordings! ::: Corrections welcome ::: This is one juicy, often overlooked & underestimated nugget of tremendous historical importance. I find it joyful & transcendent & it is guaranteed to put me in motion which is a major factor in my listening criteria. As much as it will horrify some folks, I must say this jam has always had a Grateful Dead-like flavor to it in my ears with the cascading guitar sounds of Peter & Eric together. Certainly the comparison has been made before about this period of Fleetwood Mac & they'd just played with the Dead the week before anyway. In my opinion (& others are in agreement) this is a MUCH more interesting jam than the ones on the official Tea Party box set which I find fairly lame (labeled with Walsh & Clapton, tho' it appears Clapton is perhaps not really on it, something I have always doubted anyway from the sound of it). Speaking of Tea Party tapes, where the hell are the multi-track James Gang sets...?!

As for why the quality on the tapes is less & different sound than the box set, this is from a 1st gen. reel of a 2-track stereo master reel supposedly SBD but perhaps recorded with on-stage mikes & the box set is taken from multi-track master reels. The BostonGold reel was just labeled 1970-02-xx, but others have decided for 1970-02-05. There are certainly still questions about the date & exact line-up, though apparently not the location, as the club announcer (as one uploader pointed out) is from the Boston Tea Party (the same guy who introduces the Byrds from that venue).

The multi-track tapes used for the commercially released Fleetwood Mac box "Encore Jam" with Clapton would seem to be the source for the 1970-02-05 date but seem to be possibly wrong about Clapton being on it at all. Delaney & Bonnie & Friends with Eric Clapton were in New York City at ABC Studio TV-15 (Elysee Theatre) for the "The Dick Cavett Show" on February 5, 1970, then did 2 nights at the Fillmore East February 6 & 7, then were at the Boston Tea Party on February 8 & 9. After the pre-recording for "The Dick Cavett Show" Eric could have made it up to Boston by the middle of the night on the 5th for Mac's encore(s) but I think there is enough evidence to point to the likelhood all this is incorrect. Peter Green's next known gig after Boston February 7 seems to have been February 11 in New York City, so theories that this from a Delaney & Bonnie & Friends evening at the Tea Party are very plausible. I will say the reel was supposedly labeled "Fleetwood Mac" & not just Peter Green. One thing I must note is if the announcer is saying another name, it doesn't sound like someone from the Delaney & Bonnie line-up to me. So, there you go. As always, enjoy!

--courtesy of DIMER gv0000, "Chris Hjort's "Strange Brew" book suggests that the jam took place on Sunday February 8 after the Delaney & Bonnie set and that the participants were Clapton, Green, Walsh & Donnie Scott (the Boston Tea Party light show operator and janitor)".
--courtesy of dino000, "Probably he's saying or is meaning to say 'Jim Gordon'". According to Peter Green, he is the drummer, not Fleetwood: 'I didn't know that this jam with Eric Clapton (Boston February 1970) was recorded, I was more or less tricked into it, all of a sudden there was Eric and drummer Jim Gordon on stage playing with us.'
--Dimer aziboy weighed in with, "Just for the record Eric Clapton did not jam with Fleetwood Mac during their Boston shows. The official Boston booklet is incorrect. Fleetwood Mac stayed in town and Peter Green and other members joined Delaney and Bonnie and Clapton for a jam during their show on 8 February. This was confirmed by their sound guy. Photos were taken, but have yet to surface."
--Dimer gv0000's rejoinder is: 1) that the James Gang also opened for the Delaney & Bonnie nights and 2) that aziboy's assessment is correct as Mac's soundman Dinky Dawson states in his book "Life On The Road", that Donnie Scott, who worked at the Tea Party, played congas on a jam with Eric, Peter & Walsh after the Delaney & Bonnie set on February 8th.

If we assume Peter is correct about Jim Gordon, we have most of the line-up. I can't hear Walsh at all - maybe he's playing bass? I am quite sure the announcer does NOT say Joe Walsh, Donnie Scott or Jim Gordon, but February 8 is now the most likely possibility for the date.

Kudos to Zongo for life support, Lochner for mikes&more & Fast Freddie for runnin' Video Dick's Record Emporium with the bathroom office full of tape decks.

*edits for this torrent:
-eliminated gaps between various tracks and smoothed transitions between them.
-The 'Waiting Room' was cut and split as two tracks with a gap between them. I eliminated the gap, smoothed the transition between the two tracks (@3'50), then joined them as a single track.
-The beginning applause on disc 2 track 08 moved to end of track 07; smoothed transition between these two tracks.
-smoothed transition into disc 1 track 01 and disc 2 track 01.
-faded out applause on disc 2 track 08.
