* drop out on master - as I remember this was due to the two alligator clips on
the ends of my patch cord making contact each other. Electrical tape was
administered and the tape rolled on. Very little missing.
+ abrupt level adjustment at start
^ harsh cut towards the end - although I knew I needed to flip the tape I had to
chat with a security person. He found it interesting that I was spending the
entire evening in the downstairs lobby sitting on the floor by the ladies room.
I told him I loved the way it sounded by the set of speakers set up down there.
Satisfied, he turned and I flipped the tape. A couple of minutes are missing.
After making hideous auds of the first two nights I came up with the idea
of somehow splicing into the speakers set up in the downstairs lobby/rest room
area of the theater. It was essential that the speaker still get a signal or
it would draw attention that it'd been messed with. I made up a set of patch
cords with alligator clips soldered on the ends and sneeked in the trusty D5 and
a pair of sewing scissors. After cutting into the speaker wire I clamped
on the alligator clips and away we went. The speaker played fine and the deck was
getting a perfect signal.
After 10/17 I tried again at the 10/21 evening show. Another taper patched
out of me with a D6 at this one. This taper had gotten away with a "stealth board"
that afternoon at the matinee and he hooked me up with a cm>c 1st gen. I remember
we had to bail that night towards the end of the acoustic set, but I think I have
40 min's or so on dat somewhere.
Although this method of taping produced a few gems, I must add the disclaimer that
I would not recomend messing with any band's equipment. Ever. Anywhere. That
having been said I hope you enjoy the tape. Rob

|Have seen a few requests here for this and have just gotten it myself. This is really a good one and what a job recording it!! I have left the fileset as-is for anyone that may want to use it for reseeding at LL. For everyone else, take note of the advice found at the DB link:
The fileset as originally seeded at Lossless Legs (shnflac.net) has mislabeled tracks for disc 1, tracks d1t03 through d1t11. d1t11 should be d1t03, then track d1t03 should be d1t04, d1t04 > d1t05, etc.
If you correct the track labels it throws off the ffps. Here is a corrected version of them:
|cool story! thankssSS
|WOW!!!! What a cool story behind the taping of this show.
|Is this the same SBD that has been in circulation for years?
Probably so, but the lineage on this is most likely the best available. Rob taped the show, transferred his master, and did all the transfers and editing thereafter to make this fileset. He's one of the best quality control guys out there, no doubt about it. Peace :)
|i can help you seed this one too.
|Nice ~ those were the days~ thanks for the transcription !
...and thanks for the seeding help Dave!
|Thanks again davmar77, you've been more than helpful today!! :)
|An all time great story of "where there is a will there is away". I was at many of these shows and have always thought of them as very speical.
thanks as always to the tapers.
|Dedication and a devious mind made this possible. Thanks to a great taper and to Jbyrd for making it available!
Thanks so much!!!!
|looks like someone took the liberty of grabbing this and putting it up on dime...
|Thanks for this but did anyone else notice the tracks dont match the set list? For example "Goodnight Irene" is actually D1 t9 not 11. Hmm sounds great though.
|.. just a quickie to say 10-Q! GG in OH
|Funny, I was just checking one of my drives to see if I already had this show and sure enough do. The comments though are different, but as enjoyable as reading the comments on this torrent. Wanted to pass along for your enjoyment;-)
The tape doesn't have That Lucky Old Sun, it appears that
Brothers and Sisters go straight into Deal so not sure
what is going on. Also, does not have encore.
Dan had this to say about recording this show
"JGB Lunt-Fontanne Once again I headed to New York City without any tickets. I was waiting online for tickets opening night when I noticed a rather attractive lady walking out of the venue. I approached her and asked her if she knew if there were going to be any tickets on sale. She told me that she was a friend of Jerry's and that she would be coming out with Jerry's unclaimed comp tickets before each show. I told her that I was in town for the duration and needed tickets for each show. She said she this wasn't a problem and that she would give me first crack at any extras. This was really cool because every seat she had was either a box seat or in the first 3 rows.
The first nights stealth taping went real well, we had enough people around us to conceal everything. Jerry and the venue had a no tolerance taping policy for these shows anticipating a future album release. We did notice about a dozen tapers get kicked out the first night.
The Board Tapes
The theater had a sitting room downstairs that had speakers set up. I had noticed some tapers hanging out downstairs who had spliced into the speaker wires. They were sending the amplified signals straight into their decks. It was from these guys that the 10-17-87 tapes came from.
On the afternoon of the 21st I tried this method myself and walked away with a pretty good tape.
The evening of the 21st we met up with the guys who made the tapes from the 17th and we all patched together into the speaker wires. About 3/4 of the way through the first set we noticed Bill Graham checking out the speaker wires and headed directly for us. I have never seen so many tapers scramble so fast. I grabbed my deck and headed upstairs and started dancing with the crowd hanging out in the back.
Meanwhile, the Goon Squad had grabbed my buddy Rob and were dragging him upstairs towards the door to be kicked out. This was rather sad because it was Rob's Birthday. I didn't see Rob again until the second song of the second set. He returned with an incredible story about how had climbed up to a ventilation shute, slid down an air shaft into the underground tunnels that connect the Broadway theaters. He went through a door into a hallway that led to Jerry's dressing room. They accidentally woke up a security guard who thought they had snuck in from the show and he proceeded to escort them back into the theater.
Needless to say, the speakers downstairs were shut off for the remainder of the Lunt-Fontanne run.."
|Any of you folks run into Dan Cole downstairs? He was using my buddie's D5 for this run. Not sure if he was the first to devise the speaker plan, but I believe he was. Need to collaborate between Rob and Dan to get the story straight. Nevertheless, on Dan's tape from the 21st you can hear Bill saying "wtf" and then it cutting off quickly. Grate stories and fun times guys. Thanks for all the efforts getting these shows out to the public.

THAT'S THE COOLEST STORY I'VE HEARD ABOUT GETTING INTO A SHOW IN A LONG TIME......
|Awesome recording, so cool to read the stories about how these tapes were made.
FWIW, the tracks on D1 are out of order. "The Ballad Of Casey Jones" comes up as D1T11, when it is actually D1T3. I only realized this after listening to the show for the first time today. Anyone else notice this?
