  1. Can only reiterate what has already been said, ie the more people who use this to rate, the more representative the ratings become - which benefits everyone. Also, this site contains what we believe to be the most comprehensive list of Bruce boots currently in circulation - as such, a great place to find info on what's out there
  2. Fair point J To be honest, I'm struggling to remember, I know it was a long, long time back, but it may have been after 92, but the source (ie documentary,etc) could have pre-dated that. I don't think there was anything in there on Other Band, so I'm guessing it was probably pre-92.
  3. Fairly sure it would have been pre Other Band, but that doesn't really narrow it down that much.....
  4. ok, just to clarify here, I'm not saying for certain it was Kyoto 85. The footage I saw (& my brother confirmed but his memory is as bad as mine!) was very 'similar' to the still photos from Kyoto, in that he was walking around an empty arena, strumming his guitar. We both agreed at the time that the chords were 'In My Time...". It may have been in a documentary, or possibly a short in the Anthology video or something similar. It can't have been anything obscure, as I don't have much Bruce in video, & if it was in a documentary it would have been broadcast in the UK. I'll keep digging....
  5. great spot! the photo on the 1st page - I'm almost certain that is where the footage was taken from - now just need to work out which venue, & where the video clip exists
  6. Many thanks for sharing that - still not been able to track down the clip in question - he's in a huge arena, walking between the rows of seats with his guitar on, checking sound levels / acoustics. The place is practically empty, so I guess it was during a sound-check. It's not on the 80's David Hepworth Glory Days doc, as I watched that again this morning....
  7. funny you should mention that, I was lying in bed thinking about this last night, & Hepworth i/view came to mind.... Might have to try & track that down, thanks for the tip
  8. I remember seeing a short clip many years back, probably in an officially released video, of Bruce, walking round an empty arena. He played a few bars of this, presumably during the s/check. He was walking down the isle towards the stage. Would anyone recall where this footage was, ie which gig or video it was in please? Possibly in the Anthology 1978-88.
  9. @JimCT - you're making us cry, over & over......
  10. If you've any doubt how good an outdoor BITUSA show sounds, you only have to look at the superb recordings done by @JimCT, & the excellent mastering of his work by Hrubesh. They really don't get much better than that Here's an example: https://www.greasylake.org/the-circuit/index.php?/topic/133405-the-bootleg-collectors-corner/page/1061/&tab=comments#comment-3312855
  11. Hi, Might be an idea to check your dates. AFAIK, the ony time he played Alte Oper was 1996-02-12, & there's no CC release for that date. The only 2 CC releases for Frankfurt concerts are 2009-07-03 / 2012-05-25. There is no live performance for 2006-03-18 If you're not aware, Brucebase is a great site to verify your dates: http://brucebase.wikidot.com/2006
  12. ok, thanks, confirms it - I did it by comparing some of the tracks, & specifically Something In The Night & Rosalita - if you listen to the mp3 versions of these, you can get a direct match for the same on 08-22 Springfield. Rosie is the easiest, just listen to the part around 4:45 ish where Bruce starts the band intros, specifically for Roy....: "Ladies and gentlemen, we are lucky to have with us here tonight…a distinguished name in the music business…the most educated member of the band…he got the diploma from Wikapucka Tech…and Akawakaiya…"
  13. Hi, You may want to re-visit 1976-10-10 Oxford,OH I think it's almost certainly 1976-08-22 Springfield,MA
  14. It really doesn't get any better than this! A fantastic production of a superb show - it's just a shame you guys will not get the recognition you deserve for such a brilliant product. I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart, Jim, Hrubesh & Hobbes for all the time, effort, dedication, & professionalism gone into making this, & the kindness to share with us all. We are truly not worthy.
  15. That's the C90 they're using as the master - they're having a few issues with the case.....
  16. You really couldn't make this sh&t up Seriously, if you only knew.....!!!!! edit: I made an assumption that this was the pre-existing Discord site which sought to make life a misery for certain members here. I've just been advised by @tipyourkapthat this is a new site, run by different folk. In that case, I apologise for any unwarranted upset (ie my initial response), & wish them the best of luck.
  17. Unfortunately, the same can be said for an unquantifiable number of dates, there are many others in private collections, limited circulation,etc that, for a variety of reasons, are not released into the big, bad world. C'est la vie.
  18. Hi, Just to clarify here, I don't believe there's a Mike Camp version for 15th, just the 18th. Hope that helps? Regards.
  19. Hi All, Apologies for the confusion, my fault! The actual date is 2004-09-21 (not 2009-04-21), when Bruce joined Patti on-stage at the Bowery Ballroom. 2004-09-21 - BOWERY BALLROOM, NEW YORK CITY, NY Sorry
  20. sorry, no - I won't give them air-time here. The Mods know.
  21. Hi Daisy / Nicky, I don't really want to get into this here, as I'm sure many are sick of this by now, but (& I'm sure I can speak for others here too), the above you mention is merely a side-show. We completely understand many (for a variety of reasons) are unable to load / share. I think this has become the perception of the main problem here, however there's much deeper reasons for the current state. It's far more about the respect (of lack of) for others, common decency, good manners, & the targeted 'attacks' by others existing on another site. It's a terrible situation, as a significant amount of this is not visible on the threads, making it almost impossible for folk to make a fair assessment of the situation. I for one will not tolerate the despicable behavior demonstrated towards folk I regard as dear friends, & will make a stand based on what I know & am aware of. I really hope this thread one day comes back to what it should be: a friendly, fun, enjoyable place where we can share the great captures of concerts we all love, & ensure many more after us can continue to get pleasure from that. best wishes, M.
  22. At last, I can sleep at night - been bugging me that one Best wishes Eileen
  23. I could write so many words here, but I won't (I hear you all sigh with relief).... All I'll do at this juncture is throw a quote out from the Great Man himself: Nobody Wins Unless Everybody Wins Stay safe, be happy, & enjoy!
  24. The naughty step is about to shatter with the weight of the entire boots community, we're all just bad to the bone
