  4. I have a Dropbox link to post, an mp3 sample of some blues, mainly for Dylan Dave who expressed interest. Can I just post it or should I email it to Mat 1st. I’m thinking I should email it to him 1st.. Just thought I’d ask..

  5. Also was wondering if anyone noticed my Jefferson airplane query from last week..? No one replied & I was surprised & wondered why. Those were embryonic & cool..

  6. Jeff,

    cheers, I don’t collect the Airplane myself, but have a look at the links below – there are some early Fillmore sets listed

  7. Jeff I’d appreciate it if you e-mailed me first before posting the dropbox stuff. Just so that I can format it pretty and create a new post out of it which will give it a better chance to be seen by more people.

  8. Sorry Mat, momentarily forgot the double link moderation bizness in comment posts

    Jeff I hope you find the Airplane links useful – I remember now that there are many SBD posts of their gigs in San Fran, as there are of course for most artists at the Fillmore. Bill Graham, a real man of vision and foresight. Surprising really that some other venues were not recording more extensively. Interestingly many gigs from The Fillmore East are only available as AUD recs

  9. 1st of all, I’m a bit confused as to using this forum part of the site. Maybe I made my last couple posts in the wrong place?? All I know is I tried to find/figure out where was the appropriate place to make those posts but couldn’t figure or it wasn’t obvious. Finally, I thought I chose to post under where Dylan Dave had said something that related to this, but now it looks like I posted under something to do w/van, so I’m lost/don’t know if I posted right way or not..?

  10. @mat…ok yes I will be sure to do that (email to you 1st). The 1st time (few days ago) when I posted a link, it was an accident as I didn’t think about it 1st (I can’t even remember what it was now? as it didn’t generate any interest).

    Comment by jeff | July 7, 2014 | Reply

  11. @dylandave…dang, I just composed a post about the JA subject & b4 I could even get it saved, the software here ate it & it’s gone (I don’t think that’s supposed to happen). Basically, I thanked u4 the links, said I would check them out & gave a synopsis of why I asked about those shows in the 1st place, thinking that they were maybe no longer available as they once were (show after show after show, from the very beginning, in sbd) from the “horses mouth” (bill graham’s personal collection). I explained how yrs ago I came across that collection & the shows were freely streamable but not per se downloadable, yet still grabable… and that how yrs later, they were no longer there available in that way (at least not for free, or possibly at all). I further explained that I had never noticed those same (major collection) bill Graham sbds available elsewhere, such as in “the usual sites”, altho I could be wrong about that & maybe they are indeed there? I know there are lots of shows out there but I don’t know about this particular collection). I said I would check the links u provided to see if any of it is there (haven’t had the chance to yet). I also mentioned on a somewhat related note, that I wondered how many knew or had heard grace slick sing her own tune “white rabbit” w/her old band, b4 airplane & how it was pretty strange to hear it. I added on a more related note, how strange also, it was to hear airplane perform w/their original female singer on an early show & then, on a later evening show that same day, hear them perform w/Slick for the 1st time & then, maybe the next day or so, hear her step up for the 1st time to sing white rabbit w/them & also her other import to airplane, “somebody to love”, interestingly 2 of the most played songs in music history.

    Anyway I will check out the links & thanx.

  12. Dylan Dave… Yes it IS interesting to hear that the eastern fillmore shows were not (or generally not) sbds. I will have to check my collection to see if that is the case as I hadn’t really noticed b4. But if so, can’t help but think such a development was perhaps $$ based decision, hmmm.. (as it must’ve at some point this come to consciousness, that that music was not just cool & pioneering, but begun to realize (as I myself did way back in the beginning) that this music was not gonna just fall by the wayside after a little while, but was in fact gonna rock forever.. as great great music…thus was likely beginning to be viewed more as a commodity. Just my thoughts/opinion, but maybe some truth to it..

  13. Jeff, there isn’t really a forum on this site. Just comments on each individual post. That makes it a little wonky sometimes.

    Generally when I post something new there will be discussions about that particular show. Sometimes the conversation gets way off track, but that is cool too. Sometimes conversations (like this one) slip from an older post to a new one.

    In general I’d say if there have been no comments on a post for a few days then I wouldn’t attempt to add any new discussion on it as likely nobody is reading it any more. The one exception to that would be if you have a specific question or comment to make on that particular post that you want me to read. For example if you are looking through my archives and find a show that you would like but where the links are dead you can comment asking me to reupload it. I always get every comment on every post.

    Otherwise wait until there is a post with some new discussion on it if you want anyone else to read.

  14. haha.. When I was trying to figure out just where to post, my mind was bouncing around to all the same basic things you just said in your explanation, much like a pinball in an active pinball game…a strange analogy I guess, but that’s what my head felt like in both cases. Bottom line: it makes sense but still is confusing. Thus I coin the word: “logicafusion”. The one good takeaway tho is u said it all goes to you regardless so cool… let Mat sort it out, lol

  15. Dylan Dave, as I was saying it was surprising to hear the fillmore East shows weren’t sbds. My thinking was that bill Graham recorded most if not all of his hosted shows. So I tried looking thru my cd’s (it’s a somewhat disorganized mess so was difficult). I came up w/about 7 fillmore East shows. They were not marked as to sbd or aud, but are all from my the bill Graham personal collection that I mentioned. They are as follows:
    1) traffic-fillmore ea-11.18.70
    2) c, s, n & y-fillmord ea-6.4.70
    3) the closing of the fillmore ea-santana-7.4.71
    4) mountain-fillmore ea-12.31.70
    5) ray Charles-fillmore ea-4.18.70
    6) the who-fillmore ea-4.6.68
    7) the who-fimmore ea-10.22.69

    A quick listen to ea of these shows sounds like a sbd.
    In case you were only talking about JA shows, my quick look did not find any JA fillmore ea shows…so I’m not quite sure right now if they played there at all or not..?

  16. Jeff,

    these seem familiar to me – not sure i’ve ever heard Brother Ray’s performance however.

    ps there are 4 CSNY tapes 4-7 June in SBD qual – from the recordings for ‘4 way street’ I believe often referred to as The Halverson Tapes and all pretty essential IMHO

    FROM ONE OF THE FILE SETS INFO FILE

    ‘The Halverson Tapes are concert recording of CSNY in June 1970 taken
    from several different performances, They were compiled by engineer
    Bill Halverson from the mixing deck tapes which formed the basis of
    the “4 Way Street” album.’

    Each individual show is available as pure SBD also

  17. Cool. Good info. If you want to hear the ray Charles, see if it’s easily available & if not, happy to find or make a file & up it.

    What I’ve been getting at is this: there used to be a site called Wolfgang’s vault. Actually very like it still exists. I saw not did about a year ago, but it’s in a different form than it used to be, at least with respect to what was available & streamable & downloadable, all for free. One part of the site was offering poster art, etc there also was live shows available to hear, sometimes downloadable, but even the streams were recordable. Also there were daily (or often) featured shows & there was a period, I remember, when 1 airplane show after another was featured & they all sounded amazing & soundboard sounding & I couldn’t get them fast enough…it was great… and for the 1st time I got to relive that whole history from the 1st 65 shows & many 66 67 68 shows. I have been continually plagued by computer problem & Internet problems & so I never got to find out if those shows, in that quality, we’re widely available or not. On that old version of that site, there were also extensive (sometimes 2 pgs long) reviews & notes very well covering all the ins & outs. I also have those notes somewhere, but unfortunately, the drive that has that stuff is currently unaccessable (hopefully, temporarily only). I recall reading that it was bills site (Wolfgang being his real name) & that all of the shows on the site were part of his personal collection & that he made sure ea show had a board tape for him to archive. Supposedly that’s what these recording are then. The only thing is they were not lossless, probably mp3’s, but they sound great. So I have a bunch of them, plus the airplane ones, specifically from his collection. Now, of they are all available, esp in losses, I am not aware, but this was the basis for my initial question, in case peeps didn’t have them or readily available.

    Of anyone’s interested in info on this major sound man of those times, he’s got quite the story…
    http://www.billhalverson.com/index.html

    Finally got 2 check those airplane links.. Lots of good stuff there. Saw a bunch of shows to fill in missing spots of my collection. Of what I have, the only easy to find shows I have right now are the cd’s I have organized. In those, I have about 50 JA shows. The majority are 66/67 (+ one 65 + some up thru 69). The majority of those are fillmore & winterland + a few others like Toronto & the Matrix. All of them are part of the bill Graham catalog & I think all are boards. I think quite a few of them I did not see within the sites on your links. So if anyone is interested in some shows not included on g101 or that other site, I’ve got a few. Unfortunately they’re all lossy but are sbds. One good thing about those links you gave, is there are at least a few of those I have in my collection, that are offered in lossless there, so I can upgrade those. Thanx.

    So I guess you’ve answered my original question, in that there are some of those shows available out there, while it looks like possibly I have some more that might have been (or are) only available via B. Graham’s site? (but I could not find that same collection available on the latest version of that site (wolfgang’s vault) plus whatever IS there is member$hip only or pay-by-show.

  19. 1st, apologies for hitching onto this comment thread. It was inadvertent & I didn’t know how to correct it. But Mat if you want to stick these back where they belong that’s cool.

  20. Dylan Dave.. I sent in a sample (couple songs) of the James cotton, but I haven’t seen it here. Was it emailed to you maybe?

    Comment by jeff | July 10, 2014 | Reply

  21. Jeff,

    Thanks Mat kindly forwarded the link and i have had a listen – overly boisterous crowd but nice clear recording. As I said all blues sets are inheretly rarer and therefore more interesting than most boots IMHO. Thanks for sending it in, I would of course love to get more blues in lossless if you and Mat are up for the job at any point in the future.

    Mat

    I trust you got the re-forwarded Dylan links email thread ok

    Is that still the best email to use or do you prefer the one listed on blog?

    I have lots of mail from each of your accounts, I usually just use the reply function for any given thread.

    Comment by DylanDave | July 11, 2014 | Reply

  22. Yep I got the links. Downloaded the first one last night but was too tired to stay up for the rest. Will try to get them this weekend.

    Either e-mail is fine. I check the mathew.brewster one more frequently but I still hit up the one listed here about once a day so we’re cool. I had forgotten we corresponded through the other one so I hadn’t even checked to see if the links were sent there.

    Anyways, thanks.

  23. Dylan Dave.. Glad to finally) hear you got the sample. 10-4 on the boisterous crowd but I thought cotton blew away the noise handily when he got that harp crankin’…

    Confused by the comment about the inherent rarity of Blues sets and that you said it b4. I didn’t catch that angle & I don’t understand this point? Why would blues sets be rarer? In any event, the reason I sent the sample was to see if you were interested in or thought other would be in me making the whole transfer which I only made the sample real quick. Also there are 2 tapes. 1st James cotton, then bb, then together.

  24. Jeff

    Thanks again,

    Just statistically speaking blues sets are a lot rarer. for wahtever rason there are far fewer people who take the trouble to get good AUD catures of live sets. Most avaialable file sets are predominantly FM recordings (usually partial or highlights, made many myself over the years) SBDs from club gigs (clearly with the involvement of the club itself) or source tapes for radio broadcasts (often local radio only)

    Part of it is also just the relative size of the audiences. There are often multiple recorders for a headline Zep or Floyd gig or festival or whatever. More people = more tapers, more tapers= more sources and more likelihood that at least one will survive in sympathetic hands to enter the music sharing world of the 2000s onwards.

    Shame really as AUD recs from club gigs usually blow away those from arenas. In the old old days blues gigs were broadcast locally in US on a regular basis, often from a single mic hung above the stage. There are many live blues CDs you can buy now that originate from this type of broadcast, eg for the utterly brilliant Magic Sam.

    That’s all I was getting at really

    Anyway yes please to James and B.B. anytime if you feel inclined

    Take care

  25. Dylan Dave.. Thx for explaining that. I started going 2 dead shows in the early 80’s. Quickly learned about the open taping thing. I had somehow become inclined to get a recorder b4 that & knew nothing about open taping policies & thought there was no such thing. In fact, most likely I figure the dead were pretty much the 1st in that regard… So when I got the idea to get a recorder, it was for that specific purpose to record concerts & when I saw the lightweight, open air type, headphones w/built in tiny battery powered condenser mics, I thought hey.. these look pretty stealthy & I can prolly record anyone anywhere I want w/them and get a real stereo, possibly half decent recording. So I bought those seperately, as opposed to using the stereo, 1 point mics that came w/recorder.

    As it turned out (and I realized it as I was taping) I was basically wasting my time w/all the dead shows I taped, what w/all the pro tapers, shotgun mics & ubiquitous sbds, but…I diligently kept recording all sorts of shows, wide & varied, both in terms of artists & venue sizes. Shows such as the Johnny winter, and/or the merl Saunders and the rainforest band (as well as a few others) were done in small clubs & I could get a pretty good sounding recording, except the problem w/such shows was the inability to get away from the noisy crowd. (too bad I had no recorder or even the thought of it, back in the late 60’s, like when saw Janis for $3 at the Electric Factory in Philly). Fortunately, I think, in most cases, if a band is real good or popular, the bands sonics rose way above the crowd except during quiet moments or in between tunes and I always find that true ambiance to be enjoyable, realistic & exciting, except for the overly loud yelling or clapping. I’m now finding that most of my tapes, even the not too good ones or noisy ones, still have many enjoyable & quite listenable moments contained. The ABB show quality was a total surprise to me. A few other aren’t that much worse.

    Anyhoo, I’m glad to hear you would like to hear the entire bb king/james cotton show. I only just discovered that the actual sound of getting busted for taping is immortalized on it, lol. So I’m gonna put it 2gether. I’m also gonna put 2gether a sample of the Johnny Winter show in a bar.
