Cheated out of another show (again!)

The Doctor wasn't on the air today, as he is recovering from a general-purpose virus of indeterminate origin. When The Doctor went to see the doctor, he was told "Just wait a few days, you'll feel better".

I'll be back on the air on Wednesday, January 7, 2009. Cross my heart and hope to die!

In the meantime, have a happy new one!

There will be no program at 7AM today (12-24-08)

My asthma, which is merely a nuisance, usually,
has been kicking my ass all over the yard

I hate like hell to miss doing yet another show,
especially on Christmas Eve,
but I just don't feel up to it right now.

My sincerest apologies to my fans.
This sucks tremendously.

You can still hear my previous programs at
my podcast page:

Hopefully, my doctor and I can get this thing under
control, and I'll be back on the air where
and when I belong.

Watch this blog for further details.

Taper's notes:

Cosmik Debris, Pygmy Twylyte, Idiot Bastard Son, Cheepnis (q: Octandre), Penguin In Bondage,
RDNZL, Montana, Dupree's Paradise (incl Lohengrin, Can't Afford No Shoes riff), It Can't
Happen Here, Hungry Freaks Daddy, You're Probably Wondering Why I'm Here, How Could I

Turn Black, Harry You're A Beast, Orange County Lumber Truck, Oh No, Son Of Orange
County, More Trouble Every Day, Camarillo Brillo

One of the best shows by The Grape, both in terms of sound and content. I got the master clone
CDs "second hand", but I'm still quite sure this one is raw. It had some problems, though, namely
some digi_clicks near the beginning of the Freak Out medley. I only ran click removal on the
affected sections, so I hope I managed to find them all.

I only found the first tape flip, between RDNZL and Montana. There should be a tape change
somewhere in the Freak Out medley _ someone will probably point it out for me soon. We
wouldn't have a fill for it anyway, since no one showed up with a different source.

Thanks to The Grape for this and all his other great recordings.

OCTOBER 7, 1975

Taper's Notes:

broadcast live on WLIR FM radio on October 7, 1975. The band
is I would say at the height of their career at this point. Their
latest album " FREE HAND " had just been released in July 1975.
Here in front of a small studio audience at Ultrasonic recording
studio the group plays a smasher of a set and really shows the full
scope of their abilities. This tour features an amazing intro tape
to open the set showcasing the great composing and arranging skills
of Kerry Minnear ! There have been many versions of this show
bootlegged over the years. This version however, is from a 2nd
generation cassette dub of the broadcast. A small amount of audio
editing was used to fix gaps and FM noise. The resulting sound
quality is excellent. No official release of this show has ever come
out. So, enjoy this set by one of the greatest progressive rock
groups ever...Gentle Giant !

Frank Zappa
Amougies (Belgium), Actuel Festival
24 to 27 October 1969

source: audience recording

Taper's Notes:

This is an amazing find that I'm sure will delight fans of Frank Zappa and the bands concerned
alike. A little background : the Actuel festival was organized by the publication of the same name
(who, under different editorship, went on to become a prime mover of the French counterculture
in the early to mid-70s) in collaboration with the fledgling BYG label. It was originally going to
take place in or near Paris, but French authorities forbid it and the marquee was eventually set up
a few miles outside the French border, on Belgian soil. It took place over 5 nights, entertaining an
audience of 15-20,000 to a unique mixture of progressive pop, free jazz and contemporary music.

Frank Zappa was present at the festival (well, the first four days, it seems) in a twofold capacity.
First, as Captain Beefheart's road manager; secondly, as M.C., assisting Pierre Lattes, a famous
radio/TV presenter at the time (and the pop music editor for Actuel magazine). The latter task
proved problematic given FZ's very limited mastery of French, the prevailing language among
the audience, who themselves didn't seem to understand much English. Instead, FZ relinquished
his M.C. job for one of occasional guest guitarist.

As far as I know, with the exception of FZ's performance with Captain Beefheart, this collects all
of his jams with participating bands. A couple of films, directed by Jerome Laperrousaz and
Jean-Noel Roy, came out in 1970 but were instantly banned because of objections from various
bands (most notably Pink Floyd) whose permission hadn't been properly secured. Zappa's
performance with Beefheart is included in one of them, and since the audio of the film (unlike
the film itself) is in circulation, possibly in better sound than I could provide, I decided not to
include it.

The whereabouts of the master tapes for the festival, if any exist, are unknown. What recordings
are circulating are either the soundtrack of the film, or taken from radio broadcasts (on
Luxemburg's RTL and Belgium's RTBF). The source used here is an audience recording made by
a young French member of the audience using a now antiquated amateur tape recorder. The
original tapes have been newly transferred, but even so, the sound quality is rather poor. Still, it
seems to be the only source available at this time, so that will have to do for now.

Most legendary, of course, is Frank Zappa's jam with Pink Floyd on a very extended "Interstellar
Overdrive". Apparently, despite the wealth of Pink Floyd bootlegs in circulation, no one seems to
have their Amougies set, so this will probably delight a lot of people. Browsing various
PF-related websites, there even seems to be a debate on whether the jam ever took place. Well,
here is the final proof that it did.

Now, the tracklist:

1. Aynsley Dunbar's Retaliation: unknown title (7:08)
[October 24]
Victor Brox (vocals, harmonica); John Moorshead (guitar); Alex (Erroneous) Dmochowski
(bass); Aynsley Dunbar (drums)

2. Pink Floyd: Interstellar Overdrive (20:25)
[October 25]
David Gilmour (guitar); Richard Wright (organ); Roger Waters (bass); Nick Mason (drums)

3. Caravan: If I Could Do It All Over Again, I'd Do It All Over You (7:55)
[October 26]
Pye Hastings (guitar & vocals); David Sinclair (keyboards); Richard Sinclair (bass & vocals);
Richard Coughlan (drums)

4. Blossom Toes: unknown title (26:10)
[October 26]
Brian Godding (guitar, vocals & keyboards); Jim Cregan (guitar & vocals); Brian Belshaw (bass
& vocals); Kevin Westlake (drums)

5. Sam Apple Pie: unknown title (6:04)
[October 27]
Sam Sampson (vocals & harmonica); Danny Barnes (lead guitar); Andy Johnson (slide guitar);
Bob Renny (bass & vocals); Lee Baxter Hayes Jr (drums)

(Note: I understand FZ jammed with some of the free jazz players. Sadly the taper was into rock,
not jazz, and didn't bother recording any of the jazz acts.)

I intend to seed some of the individual performances in the near future, so watch out. I must
thank the taper, JJB, for his permission to seed these rare treasures, making them available freely
to all via DaD in affinity with its non-profit philosophy.

Taper's Notes:

Here (finally!) is the last of Harrison’s recordings from the Boston area. It’s Gone!, featuring Greg Ginn of Black Flag (who had just played their final show 2 weeks prior), with who would comprise the Rollins Band rhythm section later, Andrew Weiss and Sim Cain!

All of the songs are instrumentals and, not having studied their catalog, I will leave the song titles fer you to figure out. What you’ll get here is a smattering of styles from spazz-funk to jazz to driving rock, it’s all here. It’s pretty lengthy too at 65mins. Feel free to add yer own Rollins style lyrics…throw in stuff about being ugly and a machine and lots of YEAH!s…you know the drill;))

Harrison was lucky enough to witness this live, a very intimate show in the summer at the mostly empty campus of Brandeis University. Now you can hear it… I figure this will make a nice back to school gift fer you kiddies out there…

Soundboard Recording
"Conspiracy Theory" Empress Valley

No Quarter
Trampled Under Foot
Moby Dick
Stairway to Heaven

Brought to you by

Reviewers' notes:

From Underground Uprising:

I still can't believe that as I write this review I am listening to not only a completely new and unknown concert (from 1975 for goodness sake), but in addition it is a near complete and excellent sounding mono soundboard recording. Empress Valley's releases this year have been lacklustre regurgitations of already over released shows, but they then buck that trend and pull this amazing concert out of the hat. As Robert Plant introduces Over The Hills And Far Away, he says "Good evening. San Diego, good evening!". At the end of this song he apologises for the band being a bit late, blaming snow in Austria! Then he says: "which has a lot to do with San Diego, right?". Finally at the end of Stairway To Heaven he thanks San Diego. Many thanks for that Mr. Plant, you have convinced an old sceptic! The liner notes by the redoubtable Aquarius 11 are now much improved in translation from Japanese to English, and they make rather more sense than previous efforts. We are obliged to him for comparing this soundboard recording with the (very poor sounding) audience recording from this venue on the 10th March. He concludes that there are no similarities, and therefore this is a genuine new recording that has surfaced.

Unfortunately Plant's voice is not in good shape, on Rock And Roll he sounds decidedly rough. After blaming the snow for the delay (same excuse as at Long Beach on 12th March), he clears his throat (which sounds rather claggy). The invariably solid and dependable John Paul Jones is also not at his best, and he has problems with the Mellotron this evening (especially during The Rain Song, particularily near the end when it has a mind of its own). Talking of The Rain Song, Mr. Page takes a few seconds to realise that he should start playing this song immediately after The Song Remains The Same ends! Plant introduces John Bonham's Moby Dick drum solo by saying that Bonham is one of the finest trombone players that America's ever heard! This soundboard recording is punctuated throughout by various remarks by Bonham, especially during Moby Dick.

There still remains a big question as to whether Whole Lotta Love/The Crunge was played at this concert. It would be very strange if it was not, as they played it at all the other 1975 USA concerts. There is an edit in the audience applause on disc 3, track 2 (the end of Stairway), at 12.21, and then shortly afterwards the band are back on stage and Plant very forcefully says "Good evening! I said good evening!". Listening to the recording from the Long Beach show on the 12th, he says exactly the same for the second encore. Jimmy Page then goes into Heartbreaker. I strongly suspect that this was the second encore. Therefore either Whole Lotta Love/The Crunge was not played (most unlikely), or that song is missing from the soundboard recording. Looking at the previous three concerts, we find that at San Diego on the 10th March, and again in Long Beach on 11th March, the encores consisted of Whole Lotta Love/The Crunge, followed by Black Dog. At the second Long Beach concert on 12th March (two nights prior to this show), they also played Heartbreaker as a second encore. Bearing in mind that apart from this song the soundboard recording is complete with no cuts, this is very odd. One hopes that Empress Valley have not been stitched up (as they were with Requiem, Preston 30 January 1973).

So we have here an incredible find, and, for a change, full marks must go to Empress Valley for making this concert available. (Jules McTrainspotter June 04)

I have three main thoughts to offer about this excellent new release from Empress Valley:
1) for those of us (like me) who love imaginative and involved packaging, this release is a bit of a bummer.
2) for those of us (like me) who love an excellent soundboard recording of Zep, this is a thoroughly enjoyable and powerful concert and
3) for those of us (like me) who get a thrill listening to a smoking Zep 1975 performance, this ranks among the other keepers from that tour.

The recording, to me, is maybe the highlight of this release. I did not expect such clarity, and power, when this newly surfaced show was first announced. It's a very pleasant surprise to hear just how perfectly balanced everything is on stage with the audience. This is, then, a live recording that is not outdone in quality by Flying Circus, When We Were Kings, or any other 1975 board release. It's that good.

As for the performance, it's spotty, but not in a bad way. John Bonahm is providing a standard 1975 performance, with many fills mimicking those that he performed throughout the tour. Snare to tom types of bits that do not reflect the type of ingenuity that so incredibly set him apart on other nights. That said, he's still tearing it up in songs like Sick Again, OTHAFA, IMTOD, Trampled, and, in a very funky and entertaining section of Heartbreaker where he and JPJ are going it at unaccompanied, giving the audience a little extra. Robert's rough at the start, but really does improve as the show progresses, with a strong Stairway for a change. All in all, the songs are played as they were throughout the 1975 tour without any real surprises. Still, this is Zep, and the show's outstanding and entertaining from start to finish. I can only hope that concerts like this continue to make their way out of the clutches of whoever selfishly holds them for all of these years.

(Symmetry101, June 2004)

First up, when I heard of the new release being an unreleased 1975 show, I was a little disappointed. I wanted Bath soundboard or a 1972 soundboard. The date wasn't heard of and not confirmed yet! Then it was proven that it was indeed San Diego 3/14/75. So many times in the past Empress Valley has droped the ball with some of their shows. Not this time.

Well in anticipation I put disc one in and hit play...and it was(is) awesome. It has the feel of Flying Circus and Chasing The Dragon. The band is really tight, they nail Rock And Roll. Bonzo is on fire. He is really consistent night after night. Robert's voice was my main concern, how was it going to sound. Was it going to be really raspy...I think he sounds fine. Robert brings it. This is a great sounding show. I really love The Song Remains The Same and The Rain Song. The intro to The Rain Song is one of my favorite parts. Fans of No Quarter are going to love this one. No Quarter has some parts that are just unique to this show. What I mean by that is, there are some parts that I haven't heard used in any other No Quarter. It is an amazing No Quarter. Dazed And Confused is eerie and pulls you in. What is amazing about this band is that they know each other so well, they can improvise so well. Dazed And Confused is a highlight because of this fact alone. Will they pull off the improv? What songs or riffs with they throw in? and who is going to take the lead? This is one of those songs I wish I could see as well. Page's playing is solid. Now I know some people are going to say..."he was out of tune on this song or that song" the only thing I know is he sounds great. What I love about his playing is the emotion, he plays in the moment. And this show is no exception. Stairway To Heaven is great. This could be one of my favorite versions of it.

You just have to love soundboards. The whole band sounds great. All in all Empress Valley has given the Led Zeppelin community another great . Now they had better not go and re-release this show in 6 months with the rest of it (ie, the Whole Lotta Love encore). That is the only part that makes me wonder, where is the rest of the show? This is a great addition to anyone's collection. Thumbs up Empress Valley.

Taper's notes:

Cassette master>Dat(32khz/lp)>Edirol UA-3D>Power Mac G4>Bias Peak/Roxio Jam>xACT>
Flac (Level 8)

Changes Made(Nero 7):
Cross-mixed tracks (87:13)
- Instrument dynamics and clarity much improved
- Stereo balance improved
Corrected phase offset -0.15 msec on track 02
Fixed glitches at 7.38 & 26.07 tr03
Improved the fade out / in around 3.00 tr03
Corrected 200+ volume and balance variations
Applied +4dB bass EQ to track 01 only

Note that the fade-out / -ins between tracks are in the original.

Quality: Worth an A+ now

The original was a little raw, without the bell-like ringing tones that are typical of
Klaus Schulze. There were also hundreds of small volume and balance variations, but all
these are now fixed (details above), so now it is a great example of the 1977 tour...

...enjoy !!

Original Notes >>>>

The recording has been very slightly and (i hope) non invasively tweaked. I used two
filters: a very small quantity of dehiss, and a little bit of enhancement for the stereo
image. A handful of clicks were also removed.

The main manipulation is of a different sort, as I decided to leave out all of the
applause: its level was far too loud and caused distortion. And since there were only
two bursts which took place without covering more than half a random note, I preferred
it this way. My opinion is that it doesn't harm the live feeling at all...!

Finally, besides said applause, the original recording sounded cut up in a couple of
places: thus I tried and cross-faded a couple of these to track the record 'properly'
(ie: to my taste!) splitting what might have been longer passages into coherent themes/

Though there's a few themes emerging here and there from known works, track naming is
an exercise better left to the most discerning Schulze collectors. ;-)
Hope you'll enjoy it!

Taper's Notes:

this was the first show featuring Roger Powell. It's an audience recording, but was remastered beautifully. The sound is rich, full, simply outstanding.

This show comes from the incredible archive of Frank Bubnick, from whom I acquired many, many Todd shows. He was always a great guy, and my eternal thanks go to him for all the work he put into leaving the best possible sounds of Todd shows. Thanks, Frank.

If anybody wants to get in touch with Frank, please go to the following site: You WON'T be disappointed!

According to Frank's notes, he took the songs from the original masters. They were remastered by Paul Russo.

Of course, if anybody has a better version of this show (I seriously doubt it, though), I'd love to hear it. So, please upload it.

AND: please, support this and all other artists by buying their official output and going to see their shows. This is what we can do to keep the music we love alive!

If you are a fan of "East Bay Grease" & "Bump City" TOP, you will love this. Loose,live & blusey versions in good sound. Serious Stax style R&B on T8, too.

RE: 71' TOP. There is material circulating from "the closing of the Fillmore"(7/4/71) but I don't think this comes from that as my source is pretty reliable. If anybody can compare, please do.

After "Back on the Streets again", Whoever is on the mic mentions that they are recording for a record this night? Aborted live album?

I stole my big brother's "East Bay Grease" LP when I was about 10 years old because of the crazy cover. I played it to death w/ Stones Let it Bleed & Jimi's Axis. East bay Grease was out of print for maybe 15 years & then Rhino came through....

Third World with Stevie Wonder - Jamaica Sunsplash 4, August 4, 1982
Jarrett Park, Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Taper's Notes:

A Tribute to Bob Marley. Excellent audience recording. 6:00 AM show.

This recording focuses on Stevie's contribution to Sunsplash 4. Recording starts off with fade in to a Third World song "...Get off of your backside and do something for the world", quickly moves into Masterblaster, Stevie's tribute to Bob. Next is Redemption Song (joining in is Rita Marley!). Stevie dedicates the next tune, Happy Birthday to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Bob Marley. Next is Now That We've Found Love & Dancing on the Floor. The set ends with Always Around -> One Love. So, for the list types:

Track 1: Masterblaster
Track 2: Redemption Song
Track 3: Happy Birthday
Track 4: Now That We've Found Love
Track 5: Dancing On the Floor
Track 6: Always Around -> One Love.

I've never seen this posted anywhere else before, so hopefully someone will enjoy listening to this great early morning music!

This post is dedicated to my good friend Mr. Mags, who has been suggesting that I post this for some time now.

Enjoy! and share the good vibes.

Brian Eno- Music for Ara Pacis, 6 May 2008

Taper's Notes:

Nine years on from their first collaboration (`I Dormienti` in the undercrofts of the London Roundhouse), Brian (music) and Mimmo Paladino (installation, sculptures) have again joined forces for a collaborative project at Rome's Museo dell'Arra Pacis.
It ran from 11th March to 11th May.

Here is an audience recording, ipietri, a bright star in the Eno universe, sound wizzard and a good friend too has managed to visit the very installation and succesfully make a wonderful recording. Quality wise top notch!!!!

He asked me to upload this on his behalf and I feel honored (and happy to regain some of my reputation as some sort of `Eno pope` (or geek or whatsoever ;-)...). Since I didn`t take Eno's advice for slower and better thinking and made a remark at the `Nerve Net Forum` which lost me lots of sympathies there I want to repair some of the bad karma I have earned: People! Buy all of Eno`s records, he is a genius! Buy his books, dvds too and visit his installations, he is a great and gifted artist.

O.K.: here is, what ipietri wrote about the very recording (again thanks and all spots on him!!!!):

``as promised here's my recording inside the Ara Pacis in Rome
I made it yesterday afternoon with Core Sound Binaurals mic + Marantz PMD620 recorder
edited with Steinberg Wavelab and HarBal 2.3
no cuts in the recording, it's a 1 hour visit walking in the
installation... including some (rare) visitor chatting... rare and not
annoying, easily the reference recording from the installation :-))
I suggest you don't play it really works as a background...
it's playing now in my office and nobody is protesting :-)))``
