All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Grateful Dead, Port Cester, NY 2-18-1971 (SBD)

This is a historic show with the first public performance of Bertha, Loser, Greatest Story, Wharf Rat, and Playin In The Band.  The most notable is Wharf Rat sandwiched in the middle of Dark Star.  This alone would make this a must have, but the show has so much more.  A nice recording as well.

Steely Dan, Sony Studios, New York, NY, 1-28-2000 (SBD)

Here is the raw audio from the source tapes of the show filmed for PBS back in 2000. It was the band's first show since 1996 and first show since recording their "Two Against Nature" studio album.  The  sound  quality of this is amazing.  This recording contains several songs that didn't make the final cut for the PBS Special and ensuing "Plush TV Party" DVD release.  Yes this is really good!

Garcia & Saunders, two shows from the Keystone in 1974 (SBD)

Here are two more Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders shows. These are both from the Keystone in Berkeley CA, early in 1974. Some of the songs I first saw circulated as a bootleg called Dicks Gifts and are smoking hot.

Keystone; Berkeley, CA
Soundboard and some matrix.
This comes from several sources to make the complete show.

Disc One 71:08
Set I
Someday Baby [16:24]
La-La [14:04]
Second That Emotion [15:55]
My Funny Valentine [24:41]

Disc Two 74:41
Set I (con't)
Who's Lovin' You Tonight? [16:40]
Set II
Finders Keepers [11:29]
Think [11:04]
Are You Lonely For Me Baby? [22:34]
Harder They Come [12:49]

Parts of this were found on a CD that circulated called Dicks Gifts, also known as "Legion Of Mary Mystery tape". Supposedly found by Dick Latvala in the vault unlabeled.  You can see that the dead air was cut off some of the songs on the Dicks Gift versions. But this is the complete show. The Dicks Gifts came in this order. The ones that are from this are great soundboard recordings. Finders Keepers is one of my favorites on this.

1. Finders Keepers 10:12
2. Think 9:12
3. Lala 11:34
4. I Second That Emotion 14:31
5. My Funny Valentine 23:59

Jerry Garcia & Merl Saunders, San Francisco, 2-05-74 (SBD)

Someone requested I re-post this so here it is.  I don't always do re-posts but this one seemed like a good idea.  So enjoy!

Here is another Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders show. This one is from 1974. 1974 was another busy year for Garcia. During 1974 he played 41 Grateful Dead shows, just over 100 Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders shows, 7 Great American String Band shows, as well as recording his solo album Complements of Garcia, and the Grateful Dead album Mars Hotel (ugly Rumors). Quite a lot of production. This is a Soundboard show from early in the year during the time when he was in the studio recording Complements of Garcia.

Pink Floyd, Rainbow Theater, 2-20-1972

This historical recording captures Dark Side Of the
Moon in its earliest stage.  And this is the best recording you can find of the early stages of it.
 The Pink Floyd collectors claim this upgrade is by far the best sounding version
of this recording.  It is an audience recording but sounds very good.  If you like Pink Floyd this is a must listen.

Grateful Dead, Warfield Theatre, San Francisco, CA, Acoustic, October 1980 (SBD)

In 1980 the Grateful Dead decided to do an album of live acoustic music.  So they played 25 shows where they played and acoustic first set.  They did fifteen shows at the Warfield in San Francisco two in New Orleans and then eight shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York.  From these shows they produced a double album of acoustic music called Reckoning.  They had not really played acoustic sets for ten years prior to this and they really only played a few acoustic shows after this, so this was a real rare treat.  Every night they closed the acoustic set with Ripple.  Before this they had not played Ripple since 1971.  Along with that these shows brought back Bird Song and to Lay Me Down and several others that had not been played in years.  So here are some live acoustic recordings form the Warfield shows.  I call this the Alternative Reckoning. I personally really love these acoustic shows.  I hope you enjoy them as well.
