Several interesting new releases are coming out soon. PFM Impressioni Di Novembre(Virtuoso 105/106) documents the band’s show at Shibuya Kokaido, Tokyo, Japan on November 23rd, 1975.
Black Sabbath 1974 is a three disc set with two Sabbath tapes from 1974. The first two discs cover the Lampinski recording of the February 21st, 1974 Providence show. Disc three covers their set at the California Jam 1974 several months later from a soundboard recording.
Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band 2009 Tour Rehearsals (Social Graces 008/009/010/011) is a four disc set cover the rehearsals at Convention Hall, Asbury Park, New Jersey on March 18th & 23rd, 2009.
Gary Moore Reading Festival 1982 (Shades 350) covers the Reading Festival, England 28th August 1982.
And finally, a new Led Zeppelin soundboard recording surfaced last week. The almost complete March 17th, 1975 Seattle show will be pressed by Eelgrass in an affordable and attractive edition soon enough. Despite the constant denials, it seems soundboards for the two Seattle shows do indeed exist. We’re thankful to have the first night. Will the second show be released too? We are sure to find out several years from now. Until then, let’s hope the March 17th show isn’t cut or compressed to death like the Nassau Coliseum show released a few years back.
