Whilst surfing Dime this morninig, I found the following text attached to a torrent page.
It's NOT from a Queen bootleg, but it does mention Queen!
Let's hope something amazing comes from this eventually! [img=/images/smiley/msn/teeth_smile.gif][/img]


Dan Lampinski recorded over 100 concerts in the Providence/Boston area, mostly between 1974 and 1978. His earliest recordings were made with an internal microphone deck, and though they are somewhat lo-fi compared to his later work, some very great moments in rock history were captured for posterity. In late 1974 he bought a Sony TC-152SD tape recorder, a Sony ECM-99 stereo microphone, and began using Maxell cassettes. He was also fortunate enough to have a friend who provided excellent taping seats for many shows, resulting in high quality recordings. In 1977, he switched over to a Nakamichi 550 tape recorder, two Nakamichi CM-300 microphones, and continued using Maxell cassettes.

He recorded many of the major 70's bands: Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Queen, Blue Oyster Cult, Frank Zappa, Jethro Tull, ELP, Kiss, Black Sabbath, The Who, Al Stewart, Alice Cooper, Jeff Beck, Bruce Springsteen, Supertramp, Jean-Luc Ponty, Moody Blues, Neil Young, The Faces, Rush, Rick Wakeman, Kansas, as well as several "under the radar" acts.

Since Dan never traded copies of his recordings, they are all essentially uncirculated. Some copies were made for friends, but these releases are the first time most of these recordings have ever seen the light of day, and are direct from his master cassettes. No EQ'ing has been done to any of the transfers. Feel free to EQ, matrix, patch, etc and re-post if you like, just give Dan credit for the original recording.

Dan was very meticulous about taking good care of his tapes and is very pleased that these recordings will now circulate among the trading community. Please honour his kindness and generosity by sharing these recordings freely.

The transfers are available as 16bit/44.1KHz flac files suitable for CD burning, and also as 24bit/96KHz flac files for those who prefer the higher resolution.

Indeed, this is fantastic news.  But the most important part is:

Please don't clog my inbox with requests for your favourite band(s) or a show you hope may exist after all these years.....just kick back, relax and let the surprises unfold.....

Patience is the key.. !

Probably not.  He's just a taper with a lot of old tapes.  All we can do is wait, and the bounty will unravel one by one.

I had some communication with the seeder on Dime (before I read about his request not to spam his inbox with PMs)  (Read below)

My question:
Hello!

I've read the comment about Dan's tapes in the Yes torrent.
Being a huge Queen fan and collector I was wondering if you could tell me wich Queen concerts Dan recorded and if they will be shared on Dime too...

Hope to hear from you.

Kind regards,



His answer:


Providence 4/27/74
Boston 1/30/76

Both will be seeded here....Kev

This is going to be a fantastic year to Queen collectors. Unfortunately not because of QP

The original dates you posted look right to me.  He said Providence, so it has to be 4-27-74.  And let's not forget that they played two nights in Boston 76, so there are now recordings of both nights.. :-)

Amazing news:-) Well done, Dennis. I respected his wish not to cram his inbox but was suffering from curiosity...


I do not want any google ads here.

What????
No!
They SHOULD be: 26-04-74.
Day, Month, Year!

It's such a nightmare trying to figure out what the real date of a gig is if the "day" is under 12 because every country does it differently!

their first release, Yes - 1974 sounds excellent - if he managed to record the same quality with Queen, it should be two fantastic concerts
