    09/29/1971 Osaka - Stairway To Heaven - EVSD SBD Single

    They're not surprised but seriously pissed. I do see there's very small understanding here of what we would call a music industry. If people does not want to pay for the music, the artists / producers cannot afford money from it what causing lack of music. At the same time dozens of people are complaining about lack of new releases, lack of new good music, so tell me now why this happens? Are you enough smart to detect the reason? Since I am starting to be tired of that pointless discussion, I just wanna remind you that if you won't pay for a physical release (no matter from where it is sourced and if it's a bootleg or legit stuff), you cannot expect a future releases anymore, thus you cannot expect a new music. People that are keeping tapes in their vaults won't sell it for couple of bucks and they completely does not care abut the demand because the only thing they're after is money, big money. Forget about free downloads and liberation of any soundboards. It's more easy to imagine they'll take them to the grave than releasing someday just for nothing. This is a BUSINESS not a charity auction!

    Rather a realistic point of view instead of "gimme gimme" syndrome.

    Troll yourself. You have completely no idea of how the biz is working and you're now trying to persuade us that if you'd take a board for a 10k, you could spread samples. Fuck you!

    He won't buy because he wants for free. I guess he also got his bread for free from his local bakery.

    Yes, it does a shit because they have to sell out the entire run to recover capital spent on tape and get some profits. Are you a child or what? Even a teenager can understand that kind of things.

    You're 100 percent wrong! Don't mess up things together and try to understand that bootlegs means money and only money. If EVSD is keen to pay a lot of $$$ to liberate an unhearded soundboard recording, everybody (I mean everybody all around the world) should be enough grateful for that and honouring their request to not uploading / torrenting their productions unless copies are sold out (or are close to be sold out). The price of these sets might be lower a little bit but I assume that this is because of constant copying and sharing their products online, and not buying silvers. In the other words, less you pay, more you have to spend. It's an economy. Someone behind the label have to pay for these recordings and someone behind the label have to get some profits from it, it's more than easy to realize, right?. Torrents are killing music industry IN EVERY ASPECT because millions of people who are thinking they can get anything for free do not pay any single penny to the artists and producers (and all the people involved) and this leads to the situation, where being a musician means no profit. It's just like performing on stage and getting no fees for that. So, at the end, the only real lazy opportunists I do see now is you and all the people, who are getting the stuff for nothing and even complaining why it wasn't so good (ie. more complete, better sounding, etc.).
  7. Find a Magic Bus version is the good solution if you're after for these 2 shows as EV version seemed to be just a clone of the old Scoprio and MB one is referred as better than any older titles.

    Led Zeppelin to do a Live streaming service

    The thing is, if they will stream, they can put a lossy format as the Wolfgang's Vault did, so it's a bit pointless to download and bootlegging. My five cents to the discussion. I hope they won't do that and instead they will release silvers of the live stuff.
  9. What's wrong with that MB set?

    Japan 1972

    Ask your local post office intermediately. If it was sent out from country of destination and if this can be tracked, the problem lays almost always on the side of recipient's postal service. I was experiencing similar problem last year when shipped from Japan. I couldn't find any further annotation for about 2 weeks and then the parcel has been delivered. Reason? Fuckin' customs stopped it and even did not inform postal service about that! Sometimes they also could mess it up and treated as economy...or send it back to the sender. No worries. I feel everything will be ok.

    Tit for Tat / Empress Valley

    It's weird but I feel that EV is now doing this in two ways: there's a line of reissues, often assembled in deluxe boxes, like this new/old Tit for Tat 77 set and the series of much upgraded and/or previously released sources, just like the newest Japan 72 set. Why I think it's true? There are some serious differences in mastering/editing their titles. The first line, aka reissues is nothing but a new package with an old stuff tweaked heavily and without any significant improvement of audio. The new Japan 72 set is incredibly edited, I would say they did not use any of modern mastering and left all these tapes as they are, maybe adding some minor EQ but generally they did work a lot with other things like channel balances, bad edits, source transitions etc. Believe me or not but this is the most important thing in creating any audio. You cannot polish the turd many says and EV probably learnt that if they won't work on original audios, then they cannot master it after in the way it would sound better. A good home work was made here. I hope they will continue this way as there are still many shows that aren't released or upgraded.

    Empress Valley Warning

    Very true. Back these days most of the kids who were playing in the bands didn't even think to get a serious contracts and earning a serious money. I remember a movie, was probably a TV serial, much focused on the US music scene of 50s and 60s, and at some point musicians from the Grateful Dead were asked by the film crew if their first album was cut due to demand of audience etc. They've said that it wasn't like that, in fact the Warner Brothers came out and push their balls to the walls and eventually lead to record and release it in 1967. They've also said it was too early for them to record and release as they have been really into an underground scene and nobody wanted to be a big star back then. They've been too naive and WB persuaded them much because they knew already that they can do a big biz from it (signing contracts with lots of underground bands due to large popularity throughout the audiences). The moral is that most of these people weren't set up to get money from it until big companies came in and propose contracts. It was the start of killing the music. The biz and music aren't in the same league, at least for some of us. Few years later the hippie/underground scene was completely dead and people such the Grateful Dead were famous and traveled by private jets etc. I am not gonna blame them though, they got a luck to be famous and still played a good music at all. But it was the end of non-commercial aka no-money-oriented music.

    Torrents killed the music. People who are downloading, mostly just even did not listen to it again. It may explain why the music industry is dead these days. Add the fact today's kids aren't really interested in music at all, and we got the fall and decline of Music Empire LOL
