Recording notes: I got this from a friend of the taper shortly after the show. I may have made a few analog copies in the 90’s, but that’s about it. This is the first time I’ve transferred this show to a digital format. The taper did a nice job except that there is some microphone jostling from time-to-time, mostly between songs. The first few seconds of Supplication Jam are missing due to the tape flip. There is also about 10 seconds of distortion at the beginning of Supplication Jam due to the age of the tape.
No EQ or additional sound editing has been applied, this is the raw recording. Samples will be posted. A print advertisement clipping scan and ticket stub scan are included. Many thanks to the taper.
Show Notes: This is the complete Bobby & the Midnites portion of the show. There was an opening band, but I can’t recall their name. It definitely was not NRPS, who opened some other Bobby & The Midnites shows that year. As I recall, the crowd at the Orpheum was particularly rowdy on this night, and bringing an opening band on stage was like tossing raw meat to a starving dog. Compounding the issue was the fact that the opener was a second rate blues band, and not very good. The leg kicks and theatrics merely incited the crowd. After the first song, there was basically chatter and a smattering of applause. During the next song, it degenerated to yelling and booing, to the point that by the third song (“Shotgun,” I think), the crowd’s jeering was louder than the band. In mid-song, to the chants of “Get off the stage, you suck!”, the band stopped playing, threw down their instruments, and enthusiastically flipped the audience the bird. They just walked off, having taken enough abuse. To this day, I’ve never seen a band booed off the stage like that. When Bobby & the Midnights took the stage, Bobby Cochran shouted to the audience (it’s not on this tape) “You people are crazy!” Prior to the encore, Weir references this in a comment to the crowd. Needless to say, this was a great show.
*The Story of The Dusty Box: About 5 years ago, I tossed or gave away all of my cassettes prior to moving. Before leaving about 1500 tapes at the curb for the garbage man (I literally couldn't give 'em away), I stashed about 2 dozen that I feared I might never find in digital form. That box of tapes mysteriously disappeared. On 1/15/2008, the box was found in my basement, covered in dust, hiding behind an old slide projector. There's more to come...

|Important news from bt.etree.org!
Begining on March 17 2006, all torrents seeded at bt.etree must
include 1) checksum files (.md5, .ffp) that include a checksum for
every lossless audio file in the fileset, and 2) a copy of those
checksums pasted into the torrent description, so everyone can see
them without downloading the fileset.
If you seed a torrent without this information, it will be deleted.
We're telling you this now, so you'll know.
Of course, if there is a problem, we'll try to contact you and help
to fix it. If you don't have a valid e-mail address on your
db.etree.org account, please take a moment to add one. If we can't
contact you, we can't help you, and it be very frustrating for
everyone. Seeders who don't have valid e-mail addresses may find
their logins disabled.
This message will appear on all torrents seeded to bt.etree until
everyone has gotten the message. If your torrent has checksum files
and lists them in the description, thank you! If not, please take a
moment to edit the torrent description to include them. If you have
to add the checksum files from scratch, you'll have to pull this
torrent and start over. Sorry about that.
For help generating checksums, please visit
http://forums.etree.org/viewtopic.php?t=7025. If you have specific
questions, please post them at http://forums.etree.org and someone
will help you ASAP. Please do NOT e-mail us directly.
Thanks, and happy downloading.
|Thanks for this gem! And get out the dust rag.
|I love stories like this.ThankYou
|thanks for the seed.
what was "dusty box volume 1"?
|I was at this show as well. I believe it was "Lovelight" that got them boo-ed off. The leg kicks! I forgot about the leg kicks! Looking forward to hearing this. Thanks
|thanks for this i saw bobby cochrane about 18 months ago and he was very good.pity it was in a out of town backend of nowhere bar in scotland with 10 people in the audience but the man did the buiness.
|Samples can be found here (hopefully it works...):
|Yes! It was Lovelight that finally put the crowd over the edge. Thanks for the correction, I knew my memory wasn't THAT good...
As for the "Dusty Box Recording, vol . 1" - it was seeded over on on Dime: Roy Buchanan, 9/6/80 - opening for the Grateful Dead's epic perfomance in Lewiston, ME. It's still active: http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=179690
If folks request it, I can seed it here - just let me know.
Otherwise, Volume 3 will likely be the Bobby and the Midnites show from 1/29/82, also at the Orpheum - and also new to circulation.
|I just shot a load on my computer screen.....JF
|thanks for the upload . also does anyone have a good fm copy of bobby at the caldarone in hempstead long island it was on this tour i believe it was a radio show . i had a copy and its not that good after all the play it got and over the years of sitting in a box . if anyone has a good copy please upload it or shoot me a e-mail for a snail mail trade ....joe
|Great, great tape. Poison Ivy, 2nd set jam....get it! Please seed the Roy Buchanan if the quality is good - do you have the Levon Helm as well?
|I'll second the plea for the Calderone Concert Hall show. It was broadcast on WLIR the night of the show and never seen again. I was there -- it was a terrific show......
|The venure should be Kleinhans Music Hall.
The city should be, Buffalo.
|The correct date and venue is Boston 11/4/80. I was there and have a newspaper ad and ticket stub as proof. Strange that a ticket stub from Buffalo with the same date also exists.
|Fwiw, I have a recording of the next night where they were billed as the Bob Weir Band 11/5/80 from Waterbury, Ct. So logistically, Boston would make more sense. That is strange though.
|I'm not as excited as my friend JF up there but hey, thanks drewberry1!
|. . . and if i only had a working reel to reel deck!
my reel collection of 1970's radio broadcasts when
i lived on long island (Great Neck, NY) are still
with me. anybody live near Irving, TX and want
to get more "new show in circulation"?
"I'll second the plea for the Calderone Concert

Contact MOTB to get those reels transferred to digital.
