  • LDB Vintage Series #085 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 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.

This came from the early 80's from bands that took as a model the progressive rock movement of the 1970's in the likes of Genesis, Jethro Tull, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, VDGG and many more. These bands had a complete rejection towards punk rock but were somehow influenced by the upcoming new wave movement with the advent of new technologies and visual look which seemed to come together very well with "art rock" movement of the 70's. For many of them, symphonic rock was the reference (Genesis) with lots of keyboards and mellotrons, but others were more influenced by New Wave, others were more metal-oriented. You will hear some of them in this series: Marillion IQ Pendragon Pallas Twelfth Night Solstice Quasar and a few others This is uncirculated. A nice soundboard show from Ark's first show outside UK. Puteaux is a little town just outside Paris and since the organiser lived there, he found a venue where the band could play. John Jowitt left the band shortly after to join IQ and later Jadis and Arena. The band opened for IQ in June 89. This show was in support of their debut album "The Dreams of Mr Jones". I believe that is not the entire show but this is all I have unfortunately. Enjoy! ldb
