This blog continues to surprise me. A couple of weeks ago I was on a roll, posting regularly. I even commented about it in a post. Thought I’d continue to do so for a long while. Thing was at the time I was hit pretty heavy with a head cold which made me cough pretty much non stop. The only way I could sleep was to sit up into the wee hours of the morning mucking about on the computer. This distracted me and kept me from coughing too much until I was so exhausted I could lay down and knock right out. Otherwise I’d just lay in bed and cough forever. As I was already up I was able to get shows ready and upload them during my late night free time on the internet.

A few days after I commented how awesome I was things changed. The gunk in my head moved so that it was no longer making me cough. It was still making me miserable in other ways, and ultimately exhausting me by the early evening hours. Since I could lay down I did just that around 10 every night and the extra doses of Nyquil were knocking me out until morning. Thus I was not up during my free hours and thus the blog has not been updated much of late.

I’m slowly getting better, but now we have family visitations. My mother is here now and next week my wife’s parents will be in. If you’ll recall they sleep in the guest bedroom which houses the main computer which keeps me from posting anything. Which brings me to this post. I had briefly picked up these link posts awhile back but then something screwed up with one of the file hosting sites and I took my blog break and forgot all about the links post. But in this hiatus period of sickness and family visits I think I’ll pick it back up.

Until I forget again. If I’m really good and remember I’ll also try to get out an old laptop and upload some shows from another room. Until then enjoy the links.

12 Quarter To Three – Sports Arena, Los Angeles, CA August 28, 1981.

* Beginning of “Who’ll Stop The Rain?” mixed with the (very bad) soundboard source.
** Very small skip in the beginning


To keep people from asking:
Since this ‘remaster’ is from MarkP’s master recording, this doesn’t have the cuts every other release has.
‘This Land Is Your Land’ which was missing from other versions, is complete on this one.
‘Twist & Shout’ was missing half the song – it’s complete on this one.
Only cut on this is in the beginning of “Who’ll Stop The Rain?”, which was on all the other version too. (Tried to fix it)
To sum it up, this is much better than all the old ‘releases’ of this legendary show.

“Only performance [ever] of Ballad Of Easy Rider.
