I found a site that has a bunch of shows from last year's Out There tour available for download. Since I don't want 10 copies of what's pretty much the same setlist, I want to download one. Which ones have anyone heard were good? I know @DrBeatle went to the Boston show and he said that was good, so that's a frontrunner. Any other ones that were supposedly really good?

It's got:

Belo Horizante, Vienna, Orlando, Milwaukee, Tulsa, Boston, Austin, Boston, New York, Manchester, Washington, and Indianapolis.

Whats the name of the site? Im always on the lookout for such places.

Here is a review of i presume the same Orlando concert, google searches should bring up some reviews for those you listed.

I'd suggest taking soundboards over audience recordings if the source of the show is detailed, most sites do nowadays.

@meanmistermustard Satan already linked to this one, here's the Paul part: http://musictravellerstwo.blogspot.com/search?q=Paul+McCartney&max-results=20&by-date=true

Oh, and none of them have a description beyond the tracklisting.

Well thats not good.ahdn_paul_01

I'd suggest doing google searches for the bootleg titles and see what you can find. Better to do spend 15 minute searching around than an hour downloading only to find what you have is not that good and have to look elsewhere and start again.

Boston was definitely a great show…I don't think he had any duff ones! In terms of recording quality, the Boston one is excellent, too.

What other shows were listed?

Thanks, I think I'll get that one!

The others were listed in my first post, but here they are again:

Belo Horizante, Vienna, Orlando, Milwaukee, Tulsa, Boston, Austin, Boston, New York, Manchester, Washington, and Indianapolis.

It's also got a Miami show from his 2010 Up And Coming Tour and a 1990 show.

I downloaded the Boston show. Comments:

Good musically. Really energetic with some fantastic instrumental work from him and his band.

The recording's pretty good as well, the bass is clearly audible.

It's pretty quiet though, I had to turn the volume all the way up to hear it clearly. I can set iTunes to automatically play it louder than everything else at least, so I won't have to adjust the volume everytime a song from it comes up on shuffle. Overall pretty good.

I have collected also the Unsurpassed Masters of The Beach Boys. So much material as The Beatles too, though it only reaches up to the 60's albums, but that's enough for me as I am not fan of their 70's and onward material. Sure, there are great songs too indeed, but they're nothing like their golden 60's era.

My favorite bootlegs are probably The Lost Pepperland Reel & Other Rarities, Revolution (these two together have Mellotron Music 1-5), The Ultimate Acetate Collection, and Unsurpassed Broadcasts.

I just grabbed the Indianapolis show (the one I went to).  The first few songs sound like a front row recorder, Paul's voice is kinda thin and sounds like it was recorded across the room…the instruments were of course coming through the speakers but kinda quietly, like you'd hear them near the front.  Then about 6 songs in it turned into great quality soundboard stuff.  In fact I'm listening to it for the first (second :D) time right now.  Hmm, the quality changed to something in between.  I guess I'd say the quality is "mixed" – it's cool hearing Paul's voice unmixed, because you can hear the flaws better – j/k, but it's nice hearing the full sound like I heard it at the show (like I said in the 'Out There' thread…haven't learned to crosspost yet – don't let's all pm me at once telling me how!).  Ok, now it's in between the pure soundboard and the "audience mike" sound…I'll have to conclude it was audience, with good equipment, but not a lot of experience with it.  Oh yeah, I have to have both my player and my pc sound turned up to the max (not sure if my little speakers themselves are maxed or not – they're so old i'm afraid to mess with the knob, you know how they tend to flake out), just to hear it loud enough for 1am in a flat.  I'm sure someone with a real stereo could get better sound quality or at least volume.

Ok, I've started a massive undertaking – acquiring and listening to the complete purplechick deluxe album series (based on reading this topic), starting with Please Please Me.  Next up, i guess, would have to be the entire A/B Road sessions.  Then can I call myself a true Beatles fan? a-hard-days-night-george-10  Or an old/dead Beatles fan?  Or an OCD Beatles fan?  Or a Beatles fan who needs a bigger hard drive?

Do you guys think there are any other bands that have a nontrivial number (say, more than a thousand) of fans that slog through 90+ hours of studio rehearsals?  Whose goal it is to listen to every recorded sound, see every video, and read every (well, the good ones) book about a particular band?  I think I just realized why the Beatles are special d'oh

(yes, it's late and I'm reduced to playing with text uh, enhancement a-hard-days-night-george-10

Details and reviews of the Hollywood Bowl cd's - Disc 1 and Disc 2, and Mythology (link to the main file, just click on the link for each cd (volumes 1 – 3).

 

Mythology has some great material but is heavily padded out, worth getting tho and separating out the wheat from the chaff. The Hollywood set is excellent but the '64 concert has since been upgraded.

Not heard the Revolver discs but from what i can remember there are a lot of extractions of each songs which are not from Rock Band.

@Mr. Kite

Got a link?

Could be interesting. Is it kinda like a Revolver Unplugged or is it still all the weird stuff?

If its the one im thinking off then its commonly available outakes and mixes along with extractions from the songs (not Rockband sourced for the large majority) documenting how the songs were put together – very similar in nature to the Rubber Soul sessions boot. Annoyingly ive seen the cd available for download with all the track info yet cant find it, not something that interests me.

Found somewhere with pics of the cd artwork and tracklistings and it is one i was thinking about.

Do you recommend the Rubber Soul Sessions?

Oh, and Ex Tex, thanks for those recommendations, I've got them downloading.

EDIT: Is this the acetate collection you have?

@IveJustSeenAFaceo In Post 51 I gave a link… And MMM gave an accurate description, although I haven't started listening yet.

I dont have the RS sessions either. I got a Lady Madonna reconstructed sessions bootleg from somewhere, similar nature to this, and it wasn't for me as the leakage from each instrument isolation was horrid. Reminded me of the ghastly "vocal booth" outfakes of tracks like Rain and Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da that went about in the 90's.blue-meanie

If you want excellent extractions of RS, SP, AR or many other tracks that were on Rock Band hunt down Helter Skelters work, well bootleg knock-offs as his stuff was upped on his long since deleted blog (HS was a fan who took apart a good number of the Rock Band tracks and then put them back together the way they originally were, sadly his work was never finished). Most of the 5.1 mix isolations (from the official dvds) are good to listen to as well as they bring hidden sounds to the fore and arent too bad to listen to (so something like Kaleidoscope which covered the YS dvd (click on either disc 1 or disc two for cd info in that link). The regular cd source isolations that i have heard i find to be highly annoying and unlistenable.

So I've listened through the first disc of the Revolver Sessions, and it's pretty interesting seeing how the songs were put together. The solo vocals for Got To Get You Into My Life made me realize how creative the backing vocals are for that song.

I'm enjoying it, although the kind of thing I'm looking for is like a full chronicle of each song with like studio talk and them figuring out how to play certain parts and things of that nature. From what Ive gathered the Let It Be Sessions bootlegs are a struggle to listen to, but are they more like that?
