Feist: 2017-08-12 Copenhagen, Denmark (FLAC_AUD Master_1 CD)

It's been a while since I've posted a show and this one I'm posting today,
with a temporary 7 day file sharing site, because I love this artist's
voice and music and I'm doing the work needed to properly get it ready to
burn to CD (or play on a PC). This is also the very first 2017/2018 show
I've seen shared from Feist's "Pleasure" tour.

While I am a huge Feist fan, I really am not too impressed with her 2017
release of "Pleasure". It does have some good songs and she does sound
great vocally. But the songs aren't exactly what I was hoping for
musically. Especially after 6 years of waiting for a new release from
Feist.

As always, Feist's music does sound better live when compared to her studio
releases. She shines in her live shows I feel like. I've seen some great
versions of some of the new songs on YouTube. And Feist is the type of
artist that is constantly changing up the songs she sings and keeps them
fresh and interesting. The song never remains the same I guess you could
say.

The waveform looks great with no audio clipping in the recording at all and
plenty of room to work with the audio if you wanted to. The sound is
excellent but it could use a nice mastering to work with the highs and
lows. But overall, it sounds great and is a very enjoyable listen just the
way it is from the master source.

The taper reported it was raining very hard during the concert. I've
sampled the show and haven't really noticed any rain sounding noises. But
I still haven't burned it to disc and listened to it loud through the home
theater system yet either.

Thanks goes to "willer" for sharing this show on Dime on the 20th of
January, 2018. I believe "willer" was the taper but I'm not 100% sure?

I hope you enjoy the show...

Led Zeppelin: 1979-08-04 Stevenage, UK, Knebworth Festival (Pro Shot_3 DVD) REPLACEMENT LINKS GOOD FOR 7 DAYS ONLY

These are TEMPORARY links for a show I promised to get uploaded again as soon as I could.  These links will be good for 7 DAYS ONLY from the time they're uploaded.

I have no file sharing site anymore and I have been looking for a good one that is free user friendly as well as one that allows me to store at least a few TB's of data.  The cost involved as well as the sites that meet the criteria have me in limbo right now.  I can't afford what I'd like to use so I am using what I think is the best service for free users.  It's WeTransfer and they have fast speeds and users can download multiple links simultaneously.  There are limitation to downloading simultaneously and I don't know if it's based on file sizes or number of downloads at once?  So if you get a few downloads going and then you can't download any more, just let a download or two finish and then try the remaining links.  WeTransfer is FAST so that is really good.

This early post is a preparation for the 3 DVD 1980-08-04 superb Knebworth video.  It's also to let those who have requested this show again know to keep a lookout for it now.  As soon as the links become available, likely sometime today, I'll post them here.

This is the original link to the show and information:

SPECIAL NOTICE: Links To ALL Shows On The Site Thru 2017-07-24 @ 6:11 PM CST

This is my first upload I made to the Amazon Drive account after I bought a 15 month account.  This has all of the uploads I have made to this site.  And as my previous post indicates and details, Amazon Drive screwed all of us account holders over by no longer offering unlimited storage after they baited us in with the offer.  I am still upset at Amazon and don't even want to buy anything from or through them at this point.
There are some errors, caused by Amazon's stoneage system of failing uploads and downloads with no messages to let users know, in the Journey folder where complete uploads did not occur for some of the shows.  So look carefully at the files before you decide to download and make sure tracks are not missing.

Here's the real kicker in limitations that Amazon imposed on all users.  You can only download 5 GB at a time.  I believe you can download multiple (I think 5) downloads simultaneously but if they exceed 5 GB then you have to pick and chose what you want to download first and then get the rest next.  On 2 DVD copies or DL DVD's you will need to download 1 DVD at a time (2 DVD sets) or download part of the DL DVD's and then go back and get the rest of it in another download.
Amazon Drive names all files with a name like "Amazondownload.rar" or something similar and zips them with this name.  So you cannot download multiple folders or files into just one folder because each time you start a new download it will have the same name as the last download.  That is until it is unzipped and then whatever I named it (the folder) is there.  You can pick multiple folders and download them at the same time as long as they don't exceed 5 GB at a time.  So if you were to be downloading five 1969 Led Zeppelin shows that were under 1 GB each, it would download them as one file with the Amazon default name.  And when you unzip them the individual folders will all be there.
 
Amazon is cutting off my account since I set it not to renew my account (otherwise I'd be needing $1800 - $2000 a year instead of the $60 they were offering).  The account should be good until June 28th at 6:11 PM Central Standard Time.  Then they will delete my account and files.
I've actually deleted my own files with the exception of the folder named "BBBB Uploads" which has the links to everything on this site (Bootradr's Blind Boot Blog).  A few files I did change up and instead of being two or three links like in their post I made them into one link.  Nothing was uploaded in the zipped format but Amazon dowes zip them up when you download them. Some were uploaded via FileFactory in the past with multiple download links if they were 1 GB or over.  Even smaller files were set up with multiple links in the earlier FileFactory days when the files had to be 200 MB or less per file.  So if you have been trying to get a show but the FileFactory links have gone bad or maybe even one link has gone bad, you will need to download the full show again via Amazon Drive's site.
 
I am looking at other file sharing/storage sites now and trying to find something I can afford to purchase as well as a site that offers the basic features (like file size...Amazon doesn't even tell you how big a download is) and will let me store at least 2 TB or more for a decent rate.  If anyone can recommend a site, please do so in the comments area.  I'd appreciate it.  I want unlimited storage but I'll look at any good deals that offer at least 1 TB or more.  And thanks you!
Be sure to get this stuff quickly because Amazon gives no care or room to make it easier for us.
I hope you can get what you want and thanks again for any file sharing/storage recommendations...

SPECIAL NOTICE: Amazon's Bait and Switch Scam and Computer Up and Running

After buying an Amazon Drive account the company went and cancelled all unlimited storage accounts. Amazon Drive was not that good to begin with and they left a lot of basic features every other file storage / sharing site I've used had. I was disappointed with the service and how often uploads and downloads failed. I had 15 months, 3 of those were a trial, I had purchased to see if I liked it. But after 2 months Amazon cancelled the unlimited storage and anybody who had not use their three free months got the axe. Those who had been charged because they passed their free trial date were charged and locked into their account that will likely be useless to them if they try to store as much data as I was uploading. It would have cost me over $1,800 a year to upload everything I wanted to and then have links for it. That would have made the price go up from $60 to close to $2,000. I know that Amazon offered this deal knowing what they were going to do. They wanted to bait us with a great price and then switch it to a completely different deal after we got our data uploaded. This is very bad business practice and has made me rethink how I use Amazon in the future. I cancelled my account which was set to renew automatically in less than a month.

I finally was able to get my new SSD drive I've had for 6 months installed and I have been setting up my computer and operating system so that I can use it again and upload more shows to my site here. Unfortunately, I have to find a new file sharing site now and I may just go back to FileFactory, or maybe Mega, depending on the cost. FileFactory only gives a premium user 1 TB of data and they have no mobile device app for being able to upload from a mobile device without creating a Mobile account and pay more. I'm looking around at other file sharing sites right now trying to find one that is affordable and offers the best deal as far as their service and functionality goes.

It shouldn't be much longer and I will have my PC ready to begin uploads again. I have gotten some really great material that I will upload as soon as I start back. This one post is from my mobile device using Google Voice to Text.

So I should be back soon with some new material and uploads. Please keep a lookout and it will not be long.

SPECIAL NOTICE: Changing Links Over Time

As anyone who has been to this site has seen, there has not been any activity since mid last year. I am currently in the process of trying to get back to where I can upload shows and start being active again.

One thing I am doing is switching my file sharing account from FileFactory to Amazon because the price is much better and the speeds are much better as well.

This will take some time and I do have a lot on my plate right now that I am trying to complete. I still do not have my new SSD drive installed, and needless to say, the drive will need to be set up again which will take some time once it is installed.

I may temporarily use Mega and post links here for some material and from a different computer. Either way, I won't be very active until everything is finalized and ready to go.

I hope you will continue to check back and as things get completed the new uploads will be more regular again. I have some links to post for some material I have uploaded to another Led Zeppelin group in the past month. I am currently making this post from my new smartphone and I will be able to do much more as I am able to do it from a computer where I can see things better. I hope to talk to some of you soon. Stay tuned...

SPECIAL NOTICE: Replacing Bad Drive With SSD Drive/Returning Soon!

Hello Friends,

As it is obvious, I have not been able to do much uploading this year.  I've had a lot going on as I try and stay afloat in this costly world we live in.  I just have not had time to add shows and really have barely downloaded many because of the time constraints (it takes me a while to do this with my vision) and with just normal life in general for a lot of this year.  But that is about to change.

I finally am back to a point where I can start uploading again.  But now my hard drive has failed on my main PC and I am in the process of buying and replacing the drive with a new solid state drive (SSD).  These SSD's last so much longer and have no moving parts to break down.  And they are much, much faster too.  I hope to have everything restored and up and running by sometime next week.  I hate to give a time frame since they never seem to happen like I think they will.  But either way, it won't be much longer.

So if you've enjoyed getting shows here in the past, keep a lookout for new ones real soon.

Until then...

Creedence Clearwater Revival: 1970-08-29 Inglewood, CA (FLAC_AUD 2nd Gen_1 CD)

Today is the 46th anniversary of this Creedence Clearwater Revival show in the Los Angeles area.  The recording is not bad either.  The source being low generation (2nd generation) helps I am sure.  But there are issues with the recording too.  I'll get into those below as I describe the recording.

I couldn't sleep tonight, and since I haven't been able to upload a show in a long time, I decided to see who's concert anniversary it was today.  I am trying to get to a point where I can start uploading regularly again but it has been difficult lately.  And on top of other issues keeping me busy, the hard drive on my main PC (this PC) is failing and will "imminently fail" according to the boot up message.  So this is something I'll have to take care of before I can return as well.

(1) 1970-08-29 Inglewood, CA (AUD 2nd Gen)

The waveform has no clipping (or maybe one spike into the red really) and it doesn't show any brickwalling.  But the audio likely has been amplified and it is close to being maxed out in  the waveform. 

The audio sounds great but it has issues as I mentioned.  There is some distortion in louder, heavier bass parts of the show and there is also an issue early on that sounds like a flat spot on a tape head on the tape recorder/player or maybe just a tape issue where the audio goes between good and great sounding in waves.  But this clears up for the most part too as the show progresses.  And the instruments can easily be heard as can the vocals.  But again, the "flat spot on the tape head" sound does keep on chooglin' (or arising) and keeps appearing in various spots around the bend.  OK, enough CCR humor/analogy here.

There are some songs reportedly missing from what I researched and there are a few dropouts in the recording.  But it really does flow nicely in the show and it is not a big issue.

Thanks to "deadhead69" for sharing this one on Dime a while back.  I listened to the whole recording as I was preparing the post and it is really a nice one.  With so many CCR shows (audience and soundboard recordings) having distortion, being bad recordings, etc out there; it's nice to hear one you can actually understand and hear the different musicians equally on.  If it wasn't for the tape/recorder issue in the audio it would easily be an excellent recording.  But to a CCR fan, I think you'll like it just fine as is.  The guitar really sounds great in this show also!

I hope you enjoy the show...
