ZepHead315 Posted May 21, 2018 Share Posted May 21, 2018 We've talked a lot about the best recordings of the band, but what about recordings that may not be perfect, but have some sort of unique quality that draws you in? For example, one of my favorite recordings of the band is the 8/21/71 LA show. It's not the best by any means, but I LOVE how Bonzo's drums come across on that. Each hit on his drums sounds like an explosion or a cannon going off. Honestly, it may be the best recording I've ever heard of him in terms of showing how LOUD he sounded. I also enjoy the 4/28/77 Cleveland, 6/11/77 New York, and 7/17/77 Seattle audience tapes because of how boomy they sound. They're so atmospheric and the band sounds absolutely massive. You get a sense of the vastness of the arenas as well as just how many people were in the crowd. It's a great vibe. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
