Lightning Dead – Las Vegas 30 May 1992


A show that’s famous for band/weather interactions


Mogul Thrash Bern 1970


Quite an obscure group, I’ve not seen anything else by them in terms of unofficial material other than radio one recordings. Not the ultimate in quality, but exciting to hear anyway. On here

Cream – Synergy. Waltham 1967 and Boston 1968

Not so much a faff as a substitution! This 2 set bootleg has a perfectly respectable cover (see here), but I much preferred the 90’s style kitsch cover for another bootleg, “Waltham 68”, which has all of 1 and a little of the other of the same 2 concerts….. in other words, one had the content and the other had the style! I compiled the 4cd to 3cd, changed the back accordingly, and lifted both title (which sort of fits the new cover, I reckon) and title logo from the 4cd set and otherwise kept everything else from the 2cd version.  Also on Youtube, here


Compile your own Grateful Dead Movie outtakes collection


…or at least I did, which is essentially to say I still found more stuff I liked after compiling SYF volume 2 and wanted copies of that too. Perhaps I went a bit overboard…. I always had a soft spot for the entertainingly inaccurate front cover of the original (European?) VHS release, so it was an excuse to use it


Compile your own Steal Your Face Volume 2

Well, that’s what I did anyway….those Winterland ’74 shows are really quite good, although avoiding everything from the movie and soundtrack and SYF was a bit challenging…. anyway, here’s a template for anyone who fancies doing the same. A couple of the shows on the archive are downloadable, 18/10/1974 being a partial soundboard, and 16/10/1974 an audience recording…. otherwise they’re all on as streaming. All downloadable, however, from here

Obscure stuff on this one – a shame it’s not in better quality…. or easily available!
