From Dime http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=255241[/url

Once in a while, karma smiles
and something really special just sort of falls in your lap. This is
one of those moments. Carl was up in Foxboro, Mass to see John Wetton
and The School Of Rock All-Stars, and being the friendly guy that he
is, he started talking with the guy sitting next to him. Turns out they
had more than a little common musical ground, starting with King
Crimson and it worked rapidly downhill from there. Shockingly, the
topic of tapes came up and it just so happens this guy taped a bunch of
shows in the 1970s that he essentially kept to himself. You don't have
to be a rocket scientist to figure out what happened next. This series
of torrents represents the fruits of Carl's labour - multiple trips to
Dan's house to pick up tapes, lovingly and carefully transfer the
recordings and then prepare them for our collective listening pleasure.
It is my honour to be able to seed these recordings and I hope that
everyone who downloads them will get as much enjoyment out of them as
we have. The master list of the shows Dan recorded is still under
construction and we will circulate that as well as some photographic
documentation of the project somewhere down the line. 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.....



Without any further delay, I present for your enjoyment:

A 24-bit/96-KHz flac24 version of this recording is also available.





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.



Always remember - the more generous you are with your music, the more it comes back to you.

Brilliant... thanks for seeding it here!

And thanks to everyone involved in getting this out in the open.  Judging by some of the comments on Dime, this may be one of the greatest Queen tapes ever.

Needless to say... this is probably the best-sounding Queen audience tape from the 70s.

The last few months on this forum certainly have proven that!
