I'd also love to hear a tape of the show in Athens, OH in 1969, supposedly they blew Jose Feliciano off the stage. I went to Ohio University and I used to frequently walk by the venue on the way to class or to the gym. A full recording of Iceland '70 wouldn't be bad either, but the absolute holy grail for me is any show from the '68 New Yardbirds tour.

What? No way. Are you sure they blew Jose Feliciano off stage? I mean, Jose is a tough act to follow:

Thanks all for your kind words- I've got some work to do to organize the tapes. They've been in storage for almost 50 yrs. I'm slow!

Been any updates on this tape? Really looking forward to hearing it, it's amazing after all these years that treasures like this still surface.

With the exception of the abbreviated show on 4/9/77 due to Page's supposed "food poisoning", it would be nice to hear soundboard recordings of the other three completed Chicago shows on April 6, 7 and 10.  If soundboards exist or can be found, that is.

I'm not that big of a 1977 fan, but I'm from Chicago and have been told the show after the illness is a full on ripper!

It is, but unfortunately neither of the 4/10/77 audience recordings are very good (or complete). Oh well, maybe some day...

There is a soundboard tape of them and others from the 1969 Seattle Pop Festival in Woodinville WA, but it's still in the hands of an eccentric Japanese collector last I heard. 
They apparently stole the show at that festival, and blew The Doors literally right off the stage. I remember reading that a local LZ collector in Seattle pissed off the sound guy that kept the tape in negotiations so instead he sold it to a Byrds collector for 10K who then traded it for rare Byrds stuff from the Japanese guy. A real shame, but maybe someday it will surface. I highly doubt the Byrds collector didn't make a copy.
