Then I looked in Classic, and found a few Moody Blues and a whole bunch of Led Zeppelin. (that's not called a "search engine" in computerese, there's no connection there) I've only seen 3 or 4 70's Moody shows on dime while I've been here (all upped by Doinker) and this was not one of them. My "classic' search did turn up about 7 shows, including all I remember seeing posted while I've been diming my time, so I'm fairly confident now that this is not a "double posting". It's definitely my 1st post of it. Just when I was starting to think this search engine was learning how to search for what it is supposed to, it pulls the same old crap it has always done, as if the words Moody Blues don't "connect" to anything including the Moody Blues. A few extra listings would be understandable. 2656 entries for a band with maybe 10 listings, tops??? That kind of performance would not have been tolerated on the 2007 (and last place) Boston Celtics. I don't know what the heck that thing is doing, or what magic word (other than "the Moody Blues") I need to use for it to come up with just dime's Moody Blues listings. After it worked fine with Santana (one artist it used to totally spazz out on), I thought it had been fixed, then I remembered the only things that have been "fixed" in the last 8 years are the last 2 U.S. presidential elections, and gas prices, leaving Bob Dylan's "Everything is Broken" (from the 80's) as the new U.S. national anthem for the 21st century. I guess we can be glad Bob's not British. But we can be glad the Moody Blues are, since that tiny little country has contributed more rock classics per square mile than any other nation in the world in the last 50 or so years. So if it's already up, I'm sorry, but I don't think it is and I know it should be because this is music that fits the category. One of the 1st bands to use a mellotron in concert, andf I think they use one in here. I don't know how much is missing from this recording, a rather large slice of Tuesday Afternoon is missing. I think their shows were about an hour at this time, not sure who opened it. the CD I got of this had some odd tracking in it so which I have fixed for my 1st post of this fine show. the Boston 72 show was posted here but I haven't seen this one yet. Probably about average quality for a 1970 aud, I've heard even worse (even from really reliable uploaders) from this era and this is probably close to an average early 1970's Moody aud. Even though they've been around since 1965, this is the earliest Boston recording I've heard of them. It's a very nice show, with many of my favorite Moody songs (all of them would take about 3 hours). So if you aren't fussy for 21st century fidelity, I think you will enjoy much, this vintage Moody show. I stumbled on it looking for a last song of a 74 Renaissance show I hope to post. Didn't find that, but I did find this and thought you'd like to hear it. Peak Hour is the roughest part of the recording, not as clear, the rest is pretty listenable. their previous performance in Boston was 18 months before this (late 68) according to the indroduction, I've never heard that show at all. Hadn't heard this one either until recently so who knows. I'm sure at least a few folks would like to hear this show... do not sell this recording. Trade freely and losslessly.
