Live '68 LP - any chance of a torrent?

Post by Mark » 22 Aug 2006 21:52

Is there any chance someone could torrent a decent vinyl transfer of the Live '68 LP (or direct me towards an existing torrent)? The only version that I have was torrened on STG a few years ago in a bundle with the Praise Ye The Lord boot, and isn't that great: Foggy Notion fades in and, surprisingly, the general sound quality is a notch below the MP3s that circulate labelled as 'Aadrvark Cinematheque'.

The MP3s suggest that a top-quality transfer of this LP is circulating, so if anyone could upload it that would be sweet!

For the curious, I've uploaded a minute-long sample of Foggy from the 'Aadvark' MP3s >>>HERE.<<<

What a coincidince! The same thing seems to be the case with 'Foggy Notion' from 'The Black Side Of The Street'. The MP3 you can download from the website posted in this thread:

sounds more electric than the copy I have!

Is this what you're looking for?

Live '68

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-deta ... ?id=105539

LP > Traxdata CD-R > FLAC

Official track removed - 'What Goes On' - track 1, disc 4, '< Peel slowly and See' boxset

This LP was never released as a CD bootleg - all the songs on it are on the CD bootleg, 'La Cave '68/Problems In Urban Living', but in much lower quality. THIS IS A MAJOR UPGRADE.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

LIVE '68
Lurid Records LR 101, Australia, 1983
Matrix #: A-1 - LR.101.A / A-1 - LR.101.B

Side 1:
1. What Goes On (5:30) REMOVED
2. Move Right In (2:41)
3. I Can't Stand It (8:01).

Side 2:

4. Foggy Notion (10:43)
5. Heroin (6:30).

Sources: 1, 4 : La Cave, Cleveland, Ohio, 2/10/68 / 2, 3 : La Cave, 4/10/68 / 5 : La Cave, 30/4/68.

Notes: "cover design & layout by faust", actually a collage made with the VU at Max's 1970 poster. Great sound quality. Gripping liner notes*, probably written by Jamie Klimek, the guy who taped those legandary shows at La Cave. Certainly one of the best Velvet Underground bootleg ever released - definitely essential!. What Goes On is the version which finally appeared on Peel Slowly And See official box set. Reissued as Uptight in 1990

this thread reminded me I'd already d/l the torrented version described above... ok what I'm trying now is to make a complete version of the original LP, using the Peel Slowly version of What Goes On, which incidentally sounds slightly worse (to my ears anyway) than the other Live 68 tracks. One thing I've also noticed is that most tracks might have some speed issues, what do you think about it?

cheers
doc

p.s.: if it comes out nice I might send it to Rapidshare or somewhere else to be grabbed

ok I've compiled my own Live '68 cdr, sounds good to me
:D
(declicked the original files, and made the Peel Slowly one sound clearer)
if there's interest I'll post the files somewhere.

cheers

That would be great Doc!

The current torrent is the best version I've heard, except for some reason the end of I Can't Stand It is cut off. So frustrating!

uhm, strange, that should be the same version I have, but the track isn't cut off... :o

anyway, here are the files:

http://rapidshare.de/files/30766308/01-wgo.flac
http://rapidshare.de/files/30766309/02-mri.flac
http://rapidshare.de/files/30766310/03-csi.flac
http://rapidshare.de/files/30766312/04-fn.flac
http://rapidshare.de/files/30766315/05-he.flac

these files will be up for about a week.

mind you, do not expect drastic improvements... anyway let me know what you think of it!
Doc

I keep trying to download from the above links but all I get is a "Download-session invalid" message. Is anybody else having this problem? Might it be because I'm a skinflint and will only use the Free option on Rapidshare?

I'll be receiving a complete (flawless) vinyl transfer of Live '68 that's in even better quality than the one you downloaded.
