Essen 1985 and Hannover 1985 offer

Post by liverpoolken » Sat Aug 11, 2007 2:53 pm

August is proving to be a slow month for me.

So let’s get some community spirit going on this site.

I've just acquired what I'm told are two very rare LC recordings - Hannover 1985 and Essen 1985.

The sound quality of these two shows has to be heard to believed.

I know that we have had a downloading facility set up in the past for circulating LC shows, but not everybody has the bandwidth nor the computer savvy to participate in such an exercise.

So what I’m proposing to do is to send copies of these shows out in what we in the Dylan world call a vine.

For the moment I’m afraid this offer is only open to UK residents.

To participate you need to be able to burn your copies from the original discs within 48 hours and then to post on the originals to the next person in line.

It's important that you always pass on the original discs – they will be marked to this effect.

So if you have a burner and are willing to move the discs along within 48 hours please pm me your name and email address and I will organise a vine and post the details off board to the participants.

Of course it would be nice to see participants offering up a free copy or two of these shows once they have received them to other forum users not on the vine.

Please don’t post any email or postal addresses up on the forum

I’ve uploaded my artwork for these two shows up in one of my old artwork sites.

Cds were made round to go round.

Dave

Up to now you are the only person who has signed up.

I guess there can't be many LC fans around here.

The shows are sitting here ready to go.

The discs will go in the post Monday morning and you will be the first drop.

If no one else in the UK signs up I will see if anybody in mainland Euroland wants to join in.

I'd love to join in this little venture but I live in Ireland. If anyone feels like sending me copies I'll gladly make copies and pass them on to whoever wants them free of charge (of course!). Please PM me if you're feeling charitable and i'll send you my address.

Hi Birdonawire,
if you're burning tem and prepared to forward I will, in turn, send them on to anyone else in Britain or Ireland who wants to join the chain gang.

Hi RP,

Would be happy to forward them to you, but I got on to Ken to make sure it wouldn't be a 'Vine Violation' :? as I was to forward the discs to Tim. But he has assured me it's fine. You are to contact Tim for his address when you receive them and forward them to him. With vine etiquette secured I can now comply with your request with clear conscience :) I'll PM you for your address when I get them.

Is this available to those who are not wholeheartedly convinced that Dylan hits the right notes every time?

They are the right notes! Just not necessarily in the right order...
