Roy Buchanan: July 1985

After having a Rory Gallagher show shared here it's time to another great and unfortunately missing guitar player: Roy Buchanan.
Enjoy this fantastic blues show recorded live at the Cabaret Metro in Chicago. I'm not completely sure about the date, it's either 20 or 28 of July, I found a cover on the web that says 28 but I'm not absolutely sure.

Led Zeppelin: 27 April 1969

My favorite band live at the Fillmore West in San Francisco, California in one of their early shows in the States. By this time Zeppelin only had the first album released and still they were already giving a great show!
This was extracted from the unofficial DVD-Audio known as "The Devil's Blues" and is considered by many as the best version of this show. Its source is a mix between soundboard for the most part and audience occasionally but both pretty well mixed.

Sound quality: 8.5/9

01 The Train Kept A Rollin'
02 I Can't Quit You Baby
03 As Long As I Have You Medley
04 You Shook Me

Max Webster: 11-11-1977 Ottawa

This band was really good but didn't get the success they deserved, i recommend you to get any album from Max Webster or even any solo album by Kim Mitchell the singer and guitar player. They played a very good mix of classic/art/hard rock.
This is a radio broadcast recording from a concert in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
The sound isn't the best including a few minor cuts, but even so it's a very good concert!

Rory Gallagher: London September 1979

The great Rory Gallagher live at The Venue in London. The source was an FM broadcast and the sound is pretty acceptable.
For me this is Rory at his best, i prefer to hear him live and in the Hard-rocking phase of his career. He was one of the greatest, i'm sure his music will live forever!
No covers but here's an image of the ticket that i found on the web!

Marillion 1987 - Repost with remastered sound!

Ok, i managed to find the time and as promised here is a remastered version of this show.
So with a little equalization here and there i accomplished a sound a lot more clearer and i think it's worth the download even if you already grabbed the files from the original post.
Note that messing with the original files is not something i like to do, but in this case i believe it was worthy.

Sound quality: You decide!

The Outlaws: 1975 FM Broadcast

Another one from the South, only nine tracks in this but all with excellent quality, except for the first track which has a few seconds cut off at the end of the song. There is also a 3 seconds blank at the end of each track.
I read that this gig took place in Denver but I'm not 100% sure, apart from that no more info.
Anyway the music is well worthy :)

Marillion in the eighties (featuring Fish on vocals) with a concert in Edinburgh, Scotland. The title of this one is "Sugar Mice in the Edinburgh Rain".
This is a recording that was taken from an FM broadcast, however it was probably recorded on a low-quality tape so it doesn't has a very clear sound.
In the next week i will try to do some tweaking to the sound since this is a very good concert.
Meanwhile enjoy this!
