  1. Possibly nothing but true :).
  2. Uhm, most if not all early TMoQ releases were pressed on colored was first, and then on standard black wax. The initial run was around 200 to 500 copies, and all the reissues, often pressed from the same plates, were around 500 to 1000 copies. Your TMoQ is one of the early reissues, and lack of labels with logo says nothing but it's just a common practice back these days. Only first pressings had that logo, most of reissues are budget copies.
  3. From the pics posted I can say that, for almost sure, this is an early TMoQ issue, the one I have has exact same artwork but in red and labels aren't just marked with song titles. All the rest, including matrix nos. are the same.
  4. It's one of the pressings of the original Blueberry Hill issued by Blimp at the end of 1970. It pre-dating latter issues by the TMoQ and other labels so you're holding original, first issue. There were also colored vinyl pressings but they're all from the same plates and were released at the same time. Those matrix nos. are different on each of every single press so it's difficult to say from which part/run it has been taken. For sure it's a very early issue. Photos of the artwork and labels could only help to determine more details.
  5. I highly doubt if they'll rerelease this set. Millards have been released dozens of times and this unique upgrade is dedicated for those, who wants a different perspective of these famous shows. I am also a bit sceptical if anyone put a download of full shows here. At least in a fully loseless quality.
  6. Bootledz site is just a guide, not the source to where the rate system is given. He often dislike newer titles, mainly because he's not after any upgrades but new stuff only. He can degrade a title when a primary source is shorter in favor of some new or rarely seen material. I've lost a faith to his site, however his title comparison is sometimes quite good. Yes, it's a huge upgrade but don't get me wrong if I say you need a high quality gear to feel it seriously. Do not expect anything new when listening thru your computer speakers or iPhone bag. I can send you samples if you send me your email via message box.
  7. Can only second to that. Awesome quality. Those AUD should have been done that way many moons ago.
  8. No. Think twice until you say something.
  9. I really doubt if he got any serious connection with TCOLZ or any other label. Praise something doesn't mean you're involving into anything. The Baton Rouge accident was just coincidental, and I really cannot believe he got any access to that tape (no evidence of this source being circulated on his website).
  10. AA isn't a mouthpiece for EV, that's for sure. No one has an access to raw soundboards the EV released. The Freezer's Baton Rouge 77 is reported to be in the hands of hoarders only, and as for now, it hasn't been in circulation yet. The alt Cleveland 77 show wasn't in circulation - it was an agreement between the taper and AA to not to share this tape but, for some unknown reasons,. T2K got a copy and eventually released it last year (likely the tape had leaked from someone, who got an access to this recording).
  11. No. The vinyl cannot be transferred in several seconds. You need real time job to do a rip. Then you have at least edit and split individual tracks, often downsampling to a CD format. Most of vinyl collectors I know aren't interested to do any digital rips as they're thinking it's a waste of time and energy. Vinyl collectors are somewhat an elite and they do not care about the others. It may prevent kids and wankers from downloading everything for free and putting it everywhere, at least for some time. Unfortunately, there will be some assholes doing that as soon as any of unreleased stuff is going to see the daylight because they're not enough smart to realize that only covering the budget will prevent bootleggers from stopping releasing another tape.
  12. True, I just didn't read it. Anyway, this new set sounds really good.
  13. But most of people doesn't take a rip and vinyl stays untouched. That's a very good option for bootleggers.
  14. The new set contains for the first time the real master aud sources for all three LA 75 nights from Millard. I guess the label was able to contact his family/anyone, who had possessed copies. Indeed, the quality is superior and it sounds more like a soundboard than usual audience recording.
