I left the files intact and everything "as is" in this upload because, even though they may not make sense reading the file names, the songs are embedded with the metadata that has the titles and any other information added. I'm also leaving in the "Dab Lampinski introduction package" (what I call it) in the upload. Dan took the time to make an introduction package, pdf documents of shows he recorded, and a lot of other things when he started sharing his shows. And it is interesting stuff to read from what sounds like a really nice and cool guy too.

This recording is really an excellent and even superb capture of the show. But to be honest, Bad Company doesn't seem to be playing very well to me. They seem really lazy and almost like they really don't want to be there putting the show on. It sounds quiet boring in fact without much to catch my attention musically. In most cases, I'd rather hear a live show than the same old song over and over on the radio for decades. But in this case, the radio songs sound a lot better to me than this live show at least in Providence. And what a shame when you have such a great recording of a classic rock band Led Zeppelin signed to their own Swan Song label.
I listened to this show yesterday as I was doing a few things around the house. From beginning to end, I let it play. And Bad Company did seem to play a little better after they left the stage and returned for the encore. I'll leave that one to your imagination because I do not know why?
I'm just giving an honest opinion of what I think here. You may or may not agree. But since it's a free show, you have noting to lose but a little time downloading it. I'd be curious to see what others think about this performance too.
I hope you enjoy this concert...
