Had I not missed a step in my normal procedures I go back making these uploads (checking for existing metadata), well, I could have saved some time and just uploaded the file set the way it was because the work was already done. But since I went ahead an reinvented the wheel on this one...

(1) 1976-12-04 Boston, MA (Dan Lampinski Master)
Dan Lampinski recorded over 100 shows mostly throughout the 1970's and in the Boston, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island venues. He was not a tape trader and recorded his high quality shows for himself. In 2009 Lampinski's tapes started being shared as he learned of the trading communities and passion for music and recording by others that exists today. He allowed his master tapes to be transferred and those helping with the projects also created some really excellent, high resolution artwork to go with the releases. I'm not sure how many tapes altogether were released, but I got most if not practically all of them myself. I believe I skipped a few artists I had no interest in. And I kind of wish I hadn't now too. But they're likely still out there to be found if I ever want to get them.
As I mentioned, this Rory Gallagher concert was an opening act for Dave Mason. I've not collected much Dave Mason but a lot has started surfacing again lately since he is touring and I have gotten some older 1970's Mason shows. I don't believe I have the Lampinski master recording of that show and I may try to find it too.
As you'll hear in this recording, Lampinski was a superb taper and an audiophile too. The waveform on this show's audio looks perfect and spotless. And that doesn't happen by accident either.
All thanks for this recording go to Dan Lampinski and the others who have helped get his shows into circulation. It was a nice breath of fresh tape to hear and get so many classic rock shows that had been perfectly preserved for many decades and then released out of generosity and enjoyment!
I hope you enjoy the show...
