Taper:Dave Peters

So the story goes: I answered an ad on Craigslist for 500 free Grateful Dead tapes.
On picking them up from the taper, I'm also informed he and a friend recorded other bands through the 70's.
These were never circulated, and deemed inferior in quality.
When I inquired about digitizing his masters, he laughingly obliged.
Some of the old Ampex and BASF tapes are in poor shape, one completely off the spool, and several squealing badly.
I will be presenting the ones of superior quality only, out of the initial batch he loaned me.
I do believe these shows will be lovingly embraced by the Dime community, and will be shared here exclusively.

Notes:
This is a version of this recording that I compiled from two sources. I think we now have the complete recording/performance.

SOURCE 1 (labeled as 3/9/77): Most of this is taken from an unknown audience > ? > CDR source. This source was apparently missing the last 30 second of t3 and the last 17 minutes of t4.

SOURCE 2 (labeled as 3/3/77): In September 2012, taperchuck3 posted this source, with detailed lineage, at Traders Den. This source was missing t2, and also had cuts between some tracks.

Both sources sounded similar (clearly from the same original source recording), but I liked the tone of source 1, even though it has a little hiss (hey, it gives it character). So I kept all of source 1 (mainly because the first 3 tracks flowed with nothing missing, no cuts between tracks). Source 1 cut off around the 45 minutes mark (usually the limit of one side of a 90 minute cassette tape). Therefore, Source 1 was missing the last 30 seconds of t3, which I spliced in from source 2. Also, source 1 was apparently missing the last 17 minutes of t4, which I spliced in from source 2.

The correct date is March 9, because McLaughlin announces that it was Zakir's birthday.

Enjoy, because this really is one of THE best quality Shakti live recordings that exists. The quality really is excellent and the venue sounds intimate. I can say this with confidence having recently compared the quality of all of the live Shakti recordings I had in order to get rid of some and trim down my CDR collection...

comments:
"Shakti" is a Hindu word meaning sacred force, power or energy, and it's a fitting name for this outfit, here performing one of their last shows before a very long interruption of recording albums or touring. It featured some of the greatest musicians of India, some of their instruments are not very familiar outside of Indian music, and their music is truly a style of its own.
This original Shakti band of 1975-77 has one official live release which is very nice, from their July 5, 1975 show at Southampton College, Long Island, N.Y. and their 2 Montreux concerts of July 6, 76 and July 8, 77 are both available in a 17 disc boxset of John McLaughlin Live in Montreux (several of his shows, although the earliest Mahavishnu one is from 1974, not the original one unfortunately).
There were 2 shows this night by Shakti, I don't know which one this is but I think it is the early show. There may be one flip cut in here, it's very close to the whole show and it is nice sound quality, I'd say fairly comparable to the sound of the Boston 76 Shakti show upped on dime by shopkin. That's from the Handful of Beauty tour, this is near the end of the Natural Elements tour (the final show was in Phila. 3 days after this one. The whole thing runs about 85 minutes. Since Shakti had to cancel out of their early 77 Berklee concert (with Oregon!) and played the Orpheum in 76, these 2 shows were Shakti's 1st in the acoustically delightful Berklee. The wooden walls provide very good sound resonance for this kind of music and the performance was solid. In my opinion, the finest acoustic band around, and a show with Oregon would have been a showcase of the 2 best, in my view. Maybe because that was to be my 1st Shakti concert (and McLaughlin recording) and Shakti cancelled out of that, I didn't see this show. Wish I had. Even though they didn't do my favorite song on Natural Elements, Mind Ecology, this was a fine show and nice sound that any fan of McLaughlin and/or Shakti's very talented crew would be glad to hear. This was one of the 1st live Shakti shows I ever heard, got this tape close to 30 years ago just a couple of years after the show, it's still one of my favorite Shakti shows today.
Do not sell this recording.
Trade freely and losslessly.
