    Wolfgang's Vault is one very cool site!

    Ok, I should have posted that instead of just mentioning the Ramones at the Palladium so more of you would check this out. No, I don't have anything to do with the site, so this isn't an advertisement. A brother-in-law sent me the link and I was amazed at the stuff they have there. Besides a large batch of classic concerts you can order and watch for $9.98 each, they have a ton of posters, t-shirts and other memorabilia for rock fans.

    As for the shows, that's what interests me most. Just a smattering of those available:

    Graham Parker 09/16/1983 Chance
    Teddy Pendergrass 02/14/2002 Wiltern Theatre
    Iggy Pop 03/07/1977 Rainbow Theatre
    Iggy Pop 11/14/1986 Ritz
    Iggy Pop 07/19/1988 Channel
    The Ramones 01/07/1978 Palladium
    Renaissance 10/14/1977
    Set 1 Royal Albert Hall
    Renaissance 10/14/1977
    Set 2 Royal Albert Hall
    Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band 08/22/2001 Rosemont Theatre
    Todd Rundgren 05/14/1978 Bottom Line
    Santana 12/31/1976 Cow Palace
    Boz Scaggs 03/09/1974 Paramount Theatre 1
    The Streets 10/28/1983 Pittsburgh
    Pat Travers 11/10/1982 Ritz
    Pat Travers 03/26/1984 West Palm Beach
    The Tubes 11/21/1974 Record Plant

    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    If there's such a thing as honor among bootleggers, and I think there is, most would be horrified to see bootleg recordings sold. There are any number of places to get these shows for free. My personal fave (another plug) is www.Dimeadozen.org Not only are these shows free, they have thousands upon thousands of them and they're all in a lossless format. The one down side is that there are almost always 100,000 registered users and it's hard to get access. Determination can prevail as they clean out old accounts all the time. Just this weekend I downloaded the following:

    The National -White sessions 2007
    Andrew Bird - Live 2007 (killer)
    Of Montreal - another 2007 show
    The Beatles - Acoustic Masterpieces which is a 2 disc set that's been floating around the bootleg community for years and I figured I'd at least listen to it.

    Here are the most current stats:

    Available torrents: 19,633
    New within 24 hrs.: 113
    Currently seeded: 10,411
    Active rate: 53%

    There are others such as purelivegigs.com that are much easier to gain access to although it's not nearly as cool.

    Just don't want anyone spend a ton of money on something that wants to be free.

    ...mentioned that part but I was merely pointing out that you could buy any show for 9.98 but view them on your PC for free. All you need to do is create a user name and password.

    Well that's cool then, sorry that I didn't look around long enough to figure that out for myself!

    At least you know someone read your post!!!

    I"m going to look for a way to get the National and Andrew Bird shows up for the members that care.

    archive.org has some good Andrew Bird shows as well. And The Black Heart Procession and Calexico/Iron & Wine, and Spoon, and The Decemberist . . .

    No membership necessary. Of course you guys already knew that.

    Isn't that backwards? Graham had as much right as anyone to the soundboards from his own venues. Technically speaking, the house has legal rights to any soundboard or audience recording unless a prior arrangement is made. (Usually, the only right ever exercised is a security guard taking your recorder away.) Also, a lot of that stuff on the web site is radio stuff like Westwood, etc. That Ramones/Palladium is a King Biscuit recording isn't it? It only becomes a "bootleg" when the mob sells it or guys like you & me trade it or download it.
