LDB Vintage Series #012

Hi there! After closing both my Master and Special series I took a break from seeding, enjoying life and most of all
preparing for a new series! This is not going to be as frequent as my previous ones, I'll be seeding shows from time
to time so don't expect massive volumes here.

Why a "vintage" series? Because music in the 70's and 80's was really something...so different, so special with "that" kind
of sound which you don't find anymore. That was the era of real music without the internet, of long tours and enjoyable live
shows spanning from metal to new wave, progressive, jazz, fusion, pop. So many bands were born and disappeared during those
two decades.

I am then celebrating the 70's and the 80's and their unmistakeable sound in this LDB Vintage Series. You will find many bands
I have never seeded in the past but that I still enjoy listening to. Most of these come from low generation tapes that were traded
around that period, many radio broadcasts and overall lots of surprises.

Hope you will enjoy this new series!

70's and 80's also mean Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, you cannot escape from that :-) With that original, truly american
rock sound which has amazed the whole european audience starting from the late 70's and culminating to the BitUSA Tour.

There are so many Springsteen shows around that I do not think I would post anything exceptional, except maybe a few low generation
tapes I got from RLR but nothing really new, so I opted for something which could be associated to the Boss. I transferred a show from
the Big Man in Reseda but was not too happy about it (in addition to being totally unable to track the setlist...) so I decided to
propose a nice show from Little Steven and The Disciples of Soul in Villa D'Alm�, near Bergamo in northern Italy.

I was not very familiar of his solo stuff bt I enjoyed this one and noted that even before the days of Live Aid and Sun City, he was
very much involved and sensible to human rights topics and you can hear during some of the introductions.

Other than that, another face of the 80's sound....
