Budgie live at My Fathers Place in Roslyn, NY, November 25th 1976. I can’t remember how certain I was about the second guitarist being at this – doesn’t look to be on the source message, although it might be on the original source. It’s an OK recording and a spirited gig.
An excellent listen, in terms of both performance and sound! Also excellent posters taken from the similarly excellent Live Archive, where the excellent recorder excellently saved them along with the excellent audio files.
Touloos Ta’ Truck (a Phil Lesh side project) live in Fairfax, 17th May 1976. A lovely recording of a load of jolly rock’n’roll!
Jethro Tull live at the Hammersmith Odeon London, September 9th 1984. Originally an hour broadcast as part of the Radio 1 Friday Night Rock Show, this was officially released as such (ages later and ages ago), but the full show is on Wolfgangs vault. This is the back cover for those who want to use the cover from the former, but the full music from the latter.
For some reason I ended up copying the Ontario Speedway “California Jam” gig on April 6th 1974 by Black Sabbath 3 times – all versions seemed to be slightly different recordings (one I think was a rehash of Gr’ndlepol, a classic bootleg with some tracks from another gig (Asbury 75?) so had completely different versions of a couple of songs). Anyway, for reasons best left as being too much time on my hands I copied 3 different covers, one of which didn’t seem to have a back cover, so I made this. Inaccuracies are deliberate – it’s a bootleg, right?
Country Joe McDonald live with his old chum Barry Melton at Jai-Alai Fronton, Ocala Florida on the 2nd of March 1974. Since Mr. M refers to himself as the Fish, you could probably reasonably refer to this as Country Joe and the Fish, but it wasn’t billed as that at the time so I won’t bill it like that either. I’m still not sure whether that means the original band was therefore actually named after the 2 guitarists, or perhaps even were meant to be them plus backing musicians, although all group photos from the time seem to imply a group of equal parts. Anyway, it’s a genially loose gig
Another Soft Machine set from Elastic Rock, this time another gig at Turfschip, Breda, the Netherlands in 1971 (not the released Breda reactor set). Again I fiddled with the cover, again to restore the original classy image from the original LP it was copied from (from one of the releases of the absurdly regularly repackaged Jet Propelled Photographs). It’s also another case where there was another discoverable front cover with similarly no rear cover, which I used as the back cover
One of the classic (and few) bootlegs of Syd Barretts Pink Floyd – Oude-Ahoy, Rotterdam, 12 October 1967. This is the back cover to this release, probably the most prevelantly known version of the boot. I added a picture from a forgotten twofer with the Star Club bootleg which I already had a copy of separately with this rather tasty cover, but decided to use this cover for the front of the Oude CD. Maybe the original front cover for this release is better – I think the whole 20 years ago banner on the cover irked me at the time, for some reason
