  2. 8/15/75

    I like this one. http://jungleland.dnsalias.com/torrents-details.php?id=33393 The Way It Was - The Complete Bottom Line Broadcast 8/15/1975 Disc 1: Broadcast, Part 1 101-Opening Comments 102-Tenth Avenue Freeze Out 103-Spirit In The Night 104-Then She Kissed Me 105-Growin Up 106-It's Hard To Be A Saint In The City 107-Intro to E Street Shuffle 108-E Street Shuffle 109-When You Walk In The Room 110-She's The One 111-Born To Run 112-Thunder Road Disc 2: Broadcast, Part 2 201-Intro to Kitty's Back 202-Kitty's Back 203-Rosalita 204-Encore Comments 205-Sandy 206-Quarter To Three 207-Closing Comments Disc 3: Bonus Tracks 301-Jungleland 1974 302-Kitty's Back 1974 303-E Street Shuffle 1975 304-Jungleland 1975 305-Tenth Avenue Freeze Out 306-It's Hard to Be A Saint in the City 307-Thunder Road 308-When You Walk In The Room 309-She's The One Recording Notes: Source for Discs 1 and 2, except where noted, was a reel to reel recording at 3 3/4 ips. Transfer Path: Reel > Sony DTC-790 DAT (44.1 khz) > Hoontech Digital Soundcard > PC > WAV CDWave software used to record the WAV file and cut into song segments. No attempt was made to enhance the limited stereo soundstage, or to remove clicks/pops/hum present in the original broadcast. These artifacts were part of the broadcast itself, and were not related to reception. Pasting of missing segment plus limited EQ to boost low end applied to all tracks by Cool Edit Pro software. Track 203: Edit from another source (mono) used to replace missing segment due to reel flip from 2:43 - 4:02 Tracks 301-302 Bottom Line Soundboards, 7/14/1975 Tracks 303-304 Bottom Line 1975 Soundboards Tracks 306-309 Bottom Line 8/15/75 from WNEW rebroadcast 7/3/1988, recorded on a Dolby C cassette deck - these are much better quality than those used during the main show. Personal Notes: Truly a labor of love... August 15, 1975 - High Temp in NYC 85, Low 65, Wind 10mph avg, gusts to 15mph. No precipitation. A breezy midsummer night in NYC, where all the heat was concentrated on the corner of West 4th and Mercer in Greenwich Village, NY. Lots of Springsteen fans (me included) couldn't get into the Bottom Line - it usually seats 400, but there was a larger than usual number of music industry seats reserved for these 10 shows (two shows each night August 13-17.) WNEW-FM broadcast the early show Friday night. I've been searching for a complete copy of this broadcast since that night, when the mono reel to reel tapes I made had many missing pieces due to lots of different reasons. All of the bootlegs released by the profiteers were incomplete in some way, minor or major. Finally, in March 2004, nearly 29 years later. I found it. It is not the final word on this show in terms of sound quality, but it is the COMPLETE broadcast, without anything missing. Turn it on and listen to it just like you would have back in August 1975. All the station breaks and DJ chat and such are there. Thanks to the many people involved in this project, from the tape source, to those who let me borrow reel to reel decks to get the dub to DAT, to others who gave advice on mastering procedures or supplied alternate sources. Your kindness will not be forgotten.

    Could be worth a read. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cake-Rain-Memoir-Jimmy-Webb/dp/1250058414

  6. It's not on Jungleland and I don't have this audience recording. Interesting that "I Fought The Law" with Don Henley featured. If nobody comes up with it on here, I'd suggest requesting it on the BTX MP3 request thread or on Jungleland itself.

    I don't drink any of them but for Scotland's sake I want our whisky industry protected. As for alcohol in general, as Brexit hits, yes, I'm thinking there will be a need for a lot of it.

    No it's not. It's made from different ingredients. http://www.realmendrinkwhiskey.com/know-your-whiskey-the-difference-between-bourbon-and-scotch/

    It's a trademark. Without it, then any country can label whisky as Scotch whisky. Of course it's protectionism, protecting a unique product and incidentally the "UK's" biggest export. Honestly, Brexit is unravelling by the hour and it's madness to pursue but for political reasons it seemingly will to the detriment of the economy and those hit hardest will be those who voted for it.
  11. Brexit Dreams

    It's done for the benefit of the economy I'd say. "The US made clear in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership discussions that they would support a relaxation of the definition of whisky, which would open the market up to a number of products which do not currently meet that standard." http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-business-40765627
