Led Zeppelin – Brussels 1980 (no label) is a 2CD set from Vorst Nationaal, Brussels, Belgium on June 20th, 1980. There was no mention of this being from a soundboard so I assume this comes from one of the two audience sources available.
Led Zeppelin – Zurich 1980 (no label) is a triple disc from Hallenstadion, Zurich, Switzerland on June 29th, 1980. Again, there is no mention of this being from the known soundboard however the third disc is sourced from the Westwood One Broadcast DAT Master featured on WXRT but contains only four tracks from the concert.

Bob Dylan – Hot August Night 1989 (no label) is a 2CD set from Troy G. Chastain Memorial Park Amphitheatre, Atlanta, Georgia on August 16th, 1989. This also includes six bonus tracks but no mention of where they come from.

Hey Stuart, have you got any of the Moonchid Records releases? I’m dying to learn how good they sound, but haven’t found any comment on the internet. I would appreciate if you could let us know your impressions.
PM at [email protected] and will send u some samples.
They’re way too EQ’d for my taste.
I have but I’ve not actually listened to any of them in any detail yet. Interesting to read that Zepster doesn’t like the sound as I might have thought that they were just cloned straight from the downloads and these have been lauded for their tweaking, it doesn’t’t make any sense as to why Moonchild might adjust them otherwise.
If they’re really a Winston rip-offs, then I won’t pay for that shit! This is absolutely awful, they have stolen someone’s work and even stated it’s from him while not paying any single pense! It’s called a pirate, not a bootleg and they should be charged because of that!
But they’re selling just for $10 so I am guessing they’re CDRs, right?
Not as far as I can see, they are advertised as pressed CDs but I’ll have to let you know when mine arrive.
The Moonchild records label seems to be putting out these Winston remasters too – I assume the label are an offshoot of EV as they seem to very similar in style.
I really do not wanna be greedy at all, but this time it’s evident they just took someone’s else work as there is a series of 1980 recordings called Winston Remasters done by some very tallented and skilled guy just for free and they even didn’t say that on the cover! If anyone of us is still thinking just a little bit about the honour, I’d kindly ask him to avoid these crappy titles, even if they’re sounding great. I personally believe there’s should be some kind of respect to anyone, who put an effort to produce the music ust for free and since it has costed him a lot to do that, it’s time to say no for anyone, who literally stole his production.
