Talks are currently going on to secure the rights to use 16 Beatles songs.

J Geils Band - Fillmore East NY 06-27-1971

You gotta love The J Geils Band. Peter Wolf, the quick witted lead singer. Magic Dick tears it up on the harmonica. And the rest of the band pulls it all together into a power house, or powder keg. Being from Boston, my home town, I grew up listening to them. Peter Wolf was a DJ on the best rock station in New England WBCN. Which I just recently found out no longer rules the air waves. It's kinda sad that BCN is done. They to me represented what real rock radio was about. No play lists, and foul mouthed DJ's whacked out on god knows what.
This is an FM recording live at the Fillmore East. It sounds great, and the band plays some real gems. So, light one up, and start tearing up the carpet.

Set List:
1. Bill Graham Introduction
2. New York City Breakdown
3. Wait
4. First I Look At The Purse
5. Whammer Jammer
6. Homework
7. Pack Fair And Square
8. Cruisin' For A Love
9. Serves You Right To Suffer
10. Hard Drivin' Man
11. Thank You Staff & Bill Graham
12. People
13. It Ain't What You Do (It's How You Do It)
14. Outro Jam

Led Zeppelin - 1969-01-11 Fillmore West

OK, first off this is supposedly the earliest known soundboard recording of Led Zeppelin. They are the supporting act for Country Joe and The Fish at The Fillmore West, San Fransisco. Taj Mahal was the opening act. To me it's kinda of a weird pairing of bands, but hell I like them all. The Country Joe portion of this concert is officially released. I have it, and really enjoy the album. Comparing the official release of Country Joe and this soundboard of Led Zeppelin. The sound is pretty damn good. It just doesn't have that extra mastering polish. Either way it's a must have for all die-hards, and everyone else. I don't consider myself to be a die-hard, and I love this recording.

Set List:

I Can't Quit You
Dazed And Confused
You Shook Me
How Many More Times
Communication Breakdown

New Riders Of The Purple Sage - 12/2/71 Boston Music Hall, MA

Here is some amazing sounding psychedelic country rock. The New Riders of the Purple Sage opened for The Grateful Dead at the Boston Music Hall. This was a mind blowing night. If you don't have The Dead portion of this show, I highly recommend it. With the recent passing of John "Marmaduke" Dawson, I thought this would be a great show to remember his talent by. This soundboard recording comes from Jerry Moore, who also passed away in June. Jerry Moore is well known in the Dead community, for his amazing concert recordings. Both of these guys are greatly missed. Fortunately for us, their psychedelic contributions will be cherished for many years to come.

Set List:
Workingman's Blues
Rainbow
Swinging Doors
I Don't Know You
Henry
Dirty Business
Hello, Mary Lou
Only Daddy That'll Walk The Line
Glendale Train
Sailing
Portland Woman
Fair Chance To Know
Sweet Lovin' One
Louisiana Lady
Willy And The Hand Jive
