From Dimeadozen http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=291365
These are the original unaltered files, which are handy to have before the remaster comes out.

Don’t read this if you hate stories.

I was asked to put this up by many folks. Sound quality is much
better than I remembered. This was one of those nights where I was
mixing a little smoke, girls, and taping. The girl I’m with decides to
take a couple of qualudes while she and her friends were in the ladies
room….so she is useless.



I get into the Boston Garden and the row I have tickets for (14th
row I think) is now the 1st row. I mean right at the edge of the stage. I
cannot even see the stage, it’s too high. Queen has extended the stage
out into the floor area. My seat is right in the corner where the
original stage ends and the extension begins. There is a huge commotion
in this area because people are pissed about where they are sitting. You
are being escorted to about midway on the floor of the Garden, where
folding chairs have been set up for everyone. I decide to stay with my
1st row seats. Thin Lizzy has begun their set. I try and set up to
record but between the usher and the people trying to figure out what
has happened, things are very difficult. So I capture the end of the
Thin Lizzy set sitting in my seat.

The Queen intro starts and I begin recording. I try and stand on my
seat but the usher cautions me to sit down (you will hear him say this
several times on the tape). So I record the first 2 songs from my seat
again. About midway thru ‘White Queen’ everyone stands and there isn’t
much the usher can do except to say “sit down”. I stand up holding my
microphone (which I had painted black a few weeks earlier). The trouble
is I can just barely see the top of the stage and the cable to my
microphone is pulled taut. This causes one of the channels to cut out
intermittently. After ‘Bring Back That Leroy Brown’ I sat down and
changed cassettes, picked up the TC152 recording deck and put it on my
seat. Then I stood on the arm rests in order to get higher than stage
level and started recording. At this height, the sound off the stage was
fabulous. I stayed there for most of the show, but my mic cord was
still taut, so I still ended up getting an intermittent channel/noise
issue. To make matters worse, some guy jumped into my seat when I tried
to move the deck. As I yelled at him to get back, I ended up
accidentally turning the VU Meter lights on, which caused the batteries
to drain quickly. So though I was holding my mic after ‘Liar’, I just
wasn’t taping anything.

One other thing: something odd happened. I was standing on the arm
rests; this would have been midway through the show. I am holding my mic
as high as I can. Freddie comes over to my corner of the stage while
singing. It was strange. I’m holding a mic and Freddie is only 20-30ft
from me and he is holding a mic. I know he looked over in my direction
which caused me to pull the mic towards my chest. I can’t explain it. It
was an odd feeling.

So many things went wrong at this show, and my deck got crushed and
cracked that I almost went back to taping FM broadcasts and thought
about giving up trying to do anything at the Boston Garden.

I used Goldwav to fix the channel dropouts. However I left the
intermittent mic cable blips in as I am not as proficient as others and
didn’t want to butcher this recording (which was butchered already).
This recording is coming from my reels as I no longer have the original
cassettes in my possession.

Thanks everybody for sharing this one!!

Great Quality! Unfortunately is Freddie voice in a bad shape tonight...

I'm listen now to my "mix" (fixed the dopouts and a little bit stereo issue's also lifted down the low frequency) again sounds absolutely great! My poor neighbours... [img=/images/smiley/msn/wink_smile.gif][/img]

Guys,

I need some help. I am downloading at 225Kb/s but uploading at only 0.2Kb/s.

I am trying to find info on how to fix this but I can't find anything in the Dime FAQ or Wiki. Could please someone tell me how to seed with a decent speed?

Thanks a lot!

Are you seeding or otherwise uploading (eg via rapidshare or such)  anything else?  If so, turn off everything else and see what happens.  You can also test your line speed (google this - there are lots of tests available) but the result will probably be overly optimistic IMHO.

Your ISP may well be the source of your problem - many ISPs limit upspeed to 100 kbs  (irrespective of the advertised downspeed which may be very impressive) but it may be difficult to get them to admit to this (or even to understand what you are talking about - I have experienced this!). 

This isn't very technical - perhaps someone else has a better answer?  Good luck, anyway!

I am not doing Rapidshare at all nor using bandwith on any other applications. I am with the uTorrent seeding (the download has been completed). I have used the Ctrl+G option and the settings have been fixed by the program itself, but at this moment nothing is seeding (it shows: Seeds 0 (70) and Leechers 0 (22)). I don't know if this is the reason of my problem, because when the program fixed these settings there were already 0 connections, so I cannot test if that made the trick. Anyway I find a bit odd that such a gem has became so inactive that quickly... it doesn't smell good IMHO.

Thanks for your help!
