Complete show in VG audience quality.

This is the first of two oakland shows that day. It is NOT the same show as the boot "live 'r than you'll ever be" is from (that is 2nd show). There was a power failure after the opening song jjf so to keep the show going until power was restored the band changed from their usual setlist order and moved the acoustic tracks (prodigal son + you gotta move) up in the set that's why the unusual order of tracks on this boot.

01 Sam Cutler introduction

Manor, TX

(Unknown, Probably VHS Audio) > Flac (LVL 8)

1. Come On (Pt. III)
2. Look at Little Sister
3. Dirty Pool
4. Lovestruck Baby
5. You'll Be Mine
6. Manic Depression

Performance: It's a high profile gig for a young Stevie Ray Vaughan. As far as I know, this is Stevie's first television performance. Great to hear another Manic Depression.

Recording: The bass and the vocals are up front, the drums and guitar are on the back burner. There are some reception problems that interfere with the first track, but it cleans itself up nicely before too long.

Great piano sound!

Despite any initial appearances, this is not the afternoon show. The same people that recorded this show recorded that one,
and in true wide stereo too. I do know of a better version than the bootleg version of that, which I am tracking down.

I have done some widening of the sound, that I feel has worked very well : it's always a compromise between clarity and
power, I tried a few different mixing techniques (it's in Audacity, and it always involves trial and error), and I'm
happy with the final result I reached.

Hope you enjoy this too.

Thanks to everyone involved in the recording and performance of this show! In particular David Bowie and his band -

Mike Garson (piano, mellotron), Earl Slick (lead guitar), Herbie Flowers (bass guitar), Tony Newman (drums), Pablo Rosario (percussion), David Sanborn (alto sax, flute), Richard Grando (baritone sax flute), Michael Kamen (electric piano, moog, oboe), Geoff McCormack and Gui Andrisano (backing vocals).

Show Notes (thanks to Five Horizons):
The first homecoming show. In 'Long Road' Ed sings, "And the skies are always grey..." Ed also mentions that sometimes it's nice to play a show with your house key in your pocket. He later talks about how the typical Seattle weather seemed to follow them around the tour, mentioning Phoenix, Las Vegas, San Diego. 'Crown of Thorns' (once again, to everyone's surprise) is introduced as "a song that's older than me." Ed and Jeff were playing this game all night, they have been doing all these jumps in tandem for the past couple of shows, but tonight they kept trying to psych each other out and pretend one was going to jump, but then they wouldn't, and start laughing. Someone had brought a huge "VOTE BUSH" banner and hung it from the 200 level; it was removed by two industrious fans before PJ took the stage. Between 'DTE' and 'Insignificance' Ed acknowledges the previous existence of the banner and said that he couldn't believe it, and that "Just for tonight, I hope they took them out back and roughed them up a little." The members of Supergrass were brought out and thanked, and Gary and Ed trade verses on 'Timeless Melody.' WARNING - X-rated notes ahead: Afterward, Ed says, "I have a bigger cock than Flea and Patrick Ewing combined, but I don't want to brag." Mike illustrates this by holding his hands out to give us a visual. (This was referencing a comment Flea made earlier about how he heard that [new Seattle Sonic] Patrick Ewing had the biggest cock in Seattle, except that now he was in town.) April Cameron and Justine Foy are brought out (with hugs from Ed) to perform the string arrangement for 'Parting Ways.' After "Parting Ways," Jeff grabs Ed's wine bottle, takes a LONG swig, and then hands it over to Matt, who does likewise. 'Ledbetter' is lavishly tagged with 'Little Wing' (and there is a Jimi Hendrix photo, torn out of a magazine, taped to Mike's amp). Really strong, powerfully played show. On the setlist but not played: 'In Hiding' and 'The Kids Are Alright.'

This is being distributed by in tandem with, and is part of a series of the best Pearl Jam shows in existance.

Recording Notes:
The included preset is generally not as good as hoped, but is the only known completed version. Some pops were removed.

Show Notes (thanks to Five Horizons):
Unusual start with Ed's solo set and the SY guys joining him for 'Parting Ways.' When it is announced that Sonic Youth would not play and that PJ would start early, some people cheered. Ed comments on Sonic Youth's emergency and absence: "Sometimes it's kind of difficult to play music, believe it or not ... and tonight's kind of like one of those nights, but because of your presence here, it doesn't allow us any option but to play ... we'd probably listen to music to get through itanyway, so might as well listen to it together and play." 'Insignificance' is described as a song about "being small" and Ed motions above his head. 'Wishlist' is dedicated to a friend who isn't there and the mirrorball is lowered. For the second encore, Ed introduces the ukulele, holding it up and saying, "One of the original instruments of rock 'n' roll - and more importantly, heavy metal." He thanks people for registering to vote. He says that if people don't see the need for revolution then they aren't looking and mentions some corporations (dissing Bill Gates and Microsoft, saying 'Soon Forget' was written for him). He makes an analogy about the start of the Republican party and how they got Lincoln elected (and the slaves were freed) and the Green party, and apologizes: "enough from me." 'Soon Forget' is performed perfectly, after Ed asks the crowd to be quiet so they can hear the words. 'RITFW' gets a huge crowd reaction and Ed tosses out two tambourines, ending with crashing a third over the mic stand.

(^) = Performed with Lee Ranaldo, Steve Shelley, and Jim O'Rourke of Sonic Youth
(#) = Last time performed as a band to this date.

Recording Notes:
In order to fit the preset with the main set, the main set had to be retracked, basically adding a new cut inbetween "Sleight of Hand" and "Given to Fly". No fades were added so as to make it possible to reassemble the original bootleg if the preset was removed (the original bootleg order is disc 1 ends with "Rearviewmirror" and disc 2 starts with "I Got Shit"). The level of the preset was increased some up until the band kicks in during "Parting Ways", and then the whole preset was then normalized.

Show Notes (thanks to Five Horizons):
The 'Daughter' tag (Sonic Youth's 'Bull in the Heather') is a surprise. (This hasn't been tagged on 'Daughter' since the '96 tour and is more extended.) Ed runs off the stage during 'Daughter,' returning with a sheet of lyrics that he uses to sing the tag. The band is very manic tonight. Ed lets a fan in the front count off the "1,2,3,4" to open 'Porch' and Mike smashes a guitar. He tosses it up into the air, and then after it crashes to the ground, he picks it up and then smashes it to smithereens against a speaker. Ed throws himself full speed at the same speaker. Before the first encore, Ed says that it's usually the second to last show of the tour that's the best, but not this time -- the last show of the tour is the best one. During 'Go' Ed is running around centerstage backwards in a circle. Lots of glowstick throwing. Ed throws one from the stage to the upper half of the pavilion. Both Mike and Ed have their fun kicking beach balls into the crowd. Stone before 'Mankind': "All right, I'm gonna sing one!" 'I Got You' includes two band huddles, where they all strum each of their guitars trying to figure out the right notes for the song. After the first one, Ed says "I think we got it", only to have to meet again because they don't have it. Ed comes back, spreads his arms and says, "What the fuck?" At the conclusion, Stone quips, "Nothing like a little improv." He also says it had been a tough tour, but the fans are making it tough for him to quit. Members of Sonic Youth help out with 'Baba,' ending with Ed doing multiple Townshend jumps and windmills.

The Wash Story: Just before 'Crazy Mary,' Ed says that they are getting to the part of the show now where they were going to get a little crazy, "or to borrow from another Seattle band, they are going to go 'Crazy On You'" (a nod to Heart). Ed then mentions that there is a woman with a white umbrella, and he wants security to find her and to bring her down to the side of the stage. "She's OK; let her come on down." After 'Crazy Mary' Ed asks if they found the person with the umbrella (which they did - Pete went out to find her). So then the person (hi, Amy!!) is brought out from sidestage, and they have a private conversation, after which Ed says, "Hey everybody, this is Amy ... I asked her how many shows she's been to,'cause we've seen her at like the last 12 or 15. She said over a hundred. Oh my God (hugging Amy). And then Ed proceeds to take Stone's stool, and puts it down right next to his microphone, and sits her on that stool and they play 'Wash.' After the song, Ed introduces her to all of the band members; Mike hugs her, Stone kisses her and she has a brief chat with all of them.

Again here we have a rarity from the early days of ROIO CDs, on the defunct Lobster label.

This is a nice soundboard, and one of the earliest available, a key part of any DS collection.

Some vintage Alice Cooper, in excellent sound quality.  Horrible dj babbling over the intros/outros, so I added fades where needed.

Not a remaster, this is a straight transfer.

Was not sure of the date, but the cue sheet that came with the disc matches this date:

Show Notes (thanks to Five Horizons):
Ed does a solo set prior to Dismemberment Plan's set! For 'Last Kiss,' one of the crew (Shawn) comes on stage and pretends to sing, but it is actually Ed singing from the side of the stage ;)   [Ed wanted to do this because he remembered doing it in '92 and thought it would be a cool thing to repeat. Shawn only had 5 minutes advance warning and didn't really know the song well.] Eight parachutists pass by the venue, doing arial tricks while the entire band watches. Ed interrupts 'Jeremy' with a "happy landings" and comments 'Jeremy' must be the "freeloaders" favorite song so they waited to come in then. 'Go' includes a snippet from Iron Maiden's 'Run to the Hills.' Before the encore, Ed says that Iron Maiden is still in the house and asks the crowd to yell "Goodbye Maiden," and the crowd complies. Ed comments, "There's two Eddies in town," referring to the Iron Maiden mascot, also called "Eddie." A large Nokia air balloon passes by during 'RVM' prompting Ed to change the lyrics to "I seem to look away, when advertisements are flown my way." He acts like he is shooting them down with his guitar, with Matt accompanying with two or three rapid drumrolls (like a machine gun), and tells the crowd that it was their parents checking up on them and directs a "they're fine ... go to hell ... or heaven" to those in the balloon, followed by mumbling something about "which ever one is closer." 'Garden' is dedicated to the space around the venue. Ed says it is the fourth time they've played at that venue; the crowd says it was three times. For 'RitFW,' it is noted that the last time they played there, it was with Neil Young, and the speaker caught on fire! [On the encore setlist and not played: 'Black' (after 'SoL&T'; probably skipped because Mike had guitar problems) and 'Yellow Ledbetter']

This is being distributed by in tandem with, and is part of a series of the best Pearl Jam shows in existance.

Cheap Trick 1979-02-03 Liverpool University Liverpool UK

 Cheap Trick 1979-02-03 Liverpool University Liverpool UK
This was a concert by Cheap Trick at Liverpool University February 3rd and broadcast by Radio City in Liverpool on 19th February 1979.


FM>cassette>27 years>wav>flac

I was going to call this "Would you clap louder if I was Ritchie Blackmore?" since that is what the guitarist says in frustration as he gave it his all, only to be greeted by tepid applause.

I think they got spoiled by the enthusiastic Japanese fans on the Budokan tour!

Highlight for me was when they were joined on stage by Dave Edmunds

The tracks broadcasted were

1 Stiff Competition
2 On Top of the World
3 Big Eyes
4 Ain't That A Shame
5 Let It Rock (with Dave Edmunds)
6 Promised Land (with Dave Edmunds)
7 Need Your Love
8 I Want You to Want Me
9 California Man
10 Surrender

There is also a  tape flip on Promised Land that I did not try to correct, but I removed the silence to make it slighly less jarring

I have used some software tools to enhanced the sound, to make it sound listenable to my ears, but if you are not a fan of such electronic processing please do not download.

This is Squeeze back in 1981, and to make you feel as old as I do, this concert was performed a couple of years after 'Cool For Cats' was released, and almost a year after Jools Holland left the band, you know the score 'oh how time flies'.

This includes some of the best Squeeze songs from their early years, and goes to show just how good a live act they have always been.

'Too Many Teardrops' and 'I've Returned' are missing from the original BBC recording, otherwise it is the full concert recording.

Cue sheet and disc label scans are included.

Excellent Soundboard recording
Lineage: SBD > Alan Niven master remastered > CDR > DBPOWERAMP > WAV > Flac
Lineage: SBD > Silver bootleg CD "Live Samurai - Vol 2" > EAC > WAV > Flac

The most complete recording of this legendary show, - only missing the first take of "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" - comes from the remastered Alan Niven master in addition with "Whole Lotta Rosie" restored to its worthy place taken from the bootleg "Live Samurai - Vol 2" as only this version proved to be the one suited in the sound quality presented by the main source. Another bootleg offering this show, titled "London Calling" was released by Metal Sword in 2006 and is based on the original master recording as provided by Alan Niven - also lacking "Whole Lotta Rosie". This is sourced from the same master recording, only it has been remastered and mixed at some point with additional (fake) audience noise. Originally uploaded by GNR4EVER69. - Buda

NOTES - As it turned out, Guns N' Roses' third and last show at the Marquee proved to be one of their most successful appearances the band ever gave with absolutely breathtaking performances following one after the other. The band is in peak form and playing in total unison resulting a slick and professional show. It's also a rare opportunity at a Guns concert for both performers and audience to interact and expand with each other and tonight both enjoyed the opportunity to really get into things.
As they walk out on stage, Duff welcomes the crowd "The Marquee, huh?!" while Axl shouts at them "How the fuck are you doing?" as if to say hello, then adds: "Welcome to the fuckin' jungle!" They pull off a vigourus and highly energetic version with Axl clearly singing out all the high notes and more. From then on they took control and didn't stop for a mere hour of glorious ear-splitting rock. "That's gonna be our next single!" Axl states as the song finishes off. After the opening attack he dedicates 'Out Ta Get Me'... "to the press, that don't like us!" He sings with great frenzy, emphasizing every given line. After the boistorous performance - which was later released on the "Live Are: '87-'93" double live album, - Axl goes on: "You people are fuckin' great! Now... about the press! That's why I wore this shirt. This shirt says... 'Opinions are like assholes. Everyone's got one'. Think about that next time you fuckin' put someone down or I'll kick your ass! This song is called Rocket Queen!" The only live attempt of the song during these Marquee shows comes early with a rousing and passionate performance dominated with its emotional second part much to the crowd's apprecitation. Then Axl informs the audience about the developments of his latest affairs: "If you happened to be at the last show..." to which the crowd answers with a big approval "...alright, anywhere else you may have heard about the shit that went down with Tower Records. I'm happy to announce it, everything has been sorted out. Got me a nice new jacket here you know... Tower Records is okay! This next song is for everybody out there who likes to drink a little too much. ... This is called Nightrain." The performance is tight and full of frenzy with all the members playing it exceptionally well. Instead of band introductions, Axl introduces his collegaues one by one during the coming songs' peak. Slash gets his right before his guitar solo in 'Rocket Queen'. Izzy's name is thrown in during 'Nightrain' also before Slash's going into his solo. In the beginning of 'My Michelle' which follows directly after 'Nightrain' Axl tells that... "You gotta be careful when you do too much of that cocaine and you're going end up like my friend Michelle." Axl: "Alright, I got some special news for you people... If you waited in the line, you might have saw a truck outside. We're recording you fuckers, tonight! The last two shows had been so much fun and you people have been so responsive that the record company decided it would be stupid not to record the show! Because of you! I wanna thank you for helping me make another fuckin' record! God-damn! Alright this is our single at the time now... This is called It's So Easy." The performance is received with great admiration and is even more intense than previously with Duff being louder on vocals and with Slash's impeccable playing which in all marks again one of the definitve highlights of the night. Someone shouts at Axl who forwards it to the audience: "He just told me something I didn't know. He said that London is rocking now..." then adds... "and if you need to come down of that cocaine maybe you get too involved with some' called heroin. This is called Mr. Brownstone." The performance is once again amazing and seems that the band can perform it blindfolded. Undoubtedly, tonight's surprise - dedicated by Slash to the band's road manager, Colin Gardner who's turning thirty-five - is an inspired version of 'Don't Cry' which the band has been playing occasionially for more than a year now and which is the very first GN'R tune penned by Slash and Izzy (first known performance dates back to January 18, 1986 at the Roxy in Hollywood, CA). Most of the show, as Axl is very much involved with the music, he's omni-present on the small stage - spinning, turning, dropping to his knees... the perfect foil for him to narcissistically weave between. It's no different with the following 'You're Crazy' which is merely vicious with the Gunners rolling at a remarkable speed. Axl: "Give us a minute with the guitars here... I wanna dedicate this song to you people of these last three shows... and bloody old England! This is called Paradise City!" Duff remarks: "You know what? I travelled six thousand fuckin' miles and there's no fuckin' circus at Picadilly. What the fuck?!" This drew some cheers but a heckler interjects something negative which earns a "Fuckin' asshole!" in return from Axl. 'Paradise City' is pompous and terrific. It's incredibly loud yet at the same time sparklingly clear with Slash chopping recklessly at the chords during the end. Axl finishes adding: "Thank you! Thank you Marquee! Fuck it!" GN'R leaves the stage to have some drinks and before they return to perform their encore, the crowd begins a football-like chant which later melts into a chant for 'Mama Kin'. Then, Duff returns to the stage and his respond follows: "Just give us a minute to tune up the guitars, we'll be back! Fuckin' make some NOISE!!!" They began with 'Knockin' On Heaven's Door', then follow with AC/DC's 'Whole Lotta Rosie'. The band pull off the later with an amazing credibility to overwhelming success. As a result, the original UK "Welcome to the Jungle" single was backed with this performance. Before the second encore the audience starts to whistle, hoot and holler to sound their impatience.  A minute later Duff asks the crowd "Hey, what the hell is a fuckin' bogroll?! I haven't figured fuckin' one out yet." Then Slash pipes up: "Alright, check it out, due to circumstances beyond our control you guys weren't loud enough so we're doing Heaven's Door one more fuckin' time!" Somebody yells in to which he prompts: "Yeah?! Well, then make some fuckin' noise!" The audience responds with overwhelming reaction. "Otherwise we play it again! We can go the whole fuckin' night!" then adds "If you guys sing along long enough during Heaven's Door we'll be doing Mama Kin last, alright?" When the tune starts Axl acknowledges that "You're part of history here!" right before Steven crashes in - whose overall performance during these Marquee appearances is seemingly the most effective the band could have had. The performance countinues to improve with every attempt they make along with Axl's more confident vocals. This version features a bit of an extended ending where he pushes himself so much that it feels like he's literaly singing his heart out at various points. 'Move The City' is fabulous and very much dominated with Slash's amazingly fluent and dynamic solo freed from his seemingly endless capacity of licks. 'Mama Kin' is a worthy set closer, a song that is rapidly becoming a live favourite. When it was over, the audience couldn't let their band go. The good rapport which had developed tonight between them has reached its climax. "You've been great London, we love you man!" Duff shouts at them as Slash snorts in the mic: "Yeah!" The crowd countinued to worship the band which made it hard to get off the stage. Duff: "Okay, goodbye!" Then Axl bids on a farewell: "You people been absolutely fuckin' great to us here or anywhere! We will be seeing you in September with Aerosmith! GOD DAMN!" They finished big and the crowd unwound with them. A triumphant way to end their European debut.

Despite that little variations occur in the set-lists, performing 19 different songs, total of 39 live renditions on three gigs proved to be worthy enough - in addition that GN'R didn't play 'Sweet Child O' Mine' nor 'Think About You' during their Marquee performances. Still, essentially the set for each night was as powerful as rock and roll ever gets as not one set was performed in the same manner and the delivery of the songs is never twice the same. - Buda

David Bowie 1973-07-03 Hammersmith Odeon, London, England

David Bowie - His Master's Voice (David Bowie and the Spiders from Mars' Last Stand featuring Jeff Beck)
Hammersmith Odeon, London, England. July 3th 1973
Label: Living Legend LRCD 116
Audio Source: soundboard
Lineage: Silver --> EAC --> WAV --> FLAC 8 --> MWP
Number of Discs: 1
Artwork: included
Total running time: 49m 10s

Notes: The sound quality is quite good, being a soundboard recording from the early seventies. Unfortunately there are a couple of glitches throughout the disc that are on my original.

Interestingly this disc is reviewed on the excellent Bassman site ( but although the serial number and the artwork are exactly the same and I am absolutely certain I have an original silver, his tracklisting differs from mine. The tracklisting on the depicted artwork there shows the actual tracks on my disc and does include the "orgy instuctions" and not "Rebel Rebel" and "Panic in Detroit" as Bassman claims.

Info: An interesting read about this last Ziggy concert is to be found at The Ziggy Stardust Companion (
The Jeff Beck tracks were never officially released due to royalty/copyright issues.
