Judas Priest @ Rainbow Music Hall, Denver CO 1980-06-25

Here is a little piece of Denver metal history.  Judas Priest's first ever appearance in the Mile High City back in 1980 on the British Steel tour.

No idea about the history or origin of this recording but I've seen it posted around a few other places on teh web.  Really nice sounding board recording.  Amazing set list too.  Check this one out for sure.

Morrissey @ The C.U. Field House, Boulder CO 1992-10-01

This isn't one of my recordings.  I did pull this out of my archive but I would file this under liberated bootleg.  Not that those really exist anymore.  With the exception of vinyl boots.  I still see lots of those.  But way back in the early 90's people would pay a  pretty penny for these releases from Italian labels.  This show was on a release called "I'm a Poet (Colorado)".

The only information says that it's a soundboard and it has those qualities.  Really nice sounding recording though and since I like to share Colorado stuff I though I would post this up.  Enjoy.

Steve Turner (Mudhoney) @ Larimer Lounge, Denver CO 2003-11-21

Continuing on the the Mudhoney theme a bit.  Here is a on from even before those last Mudhoney shows I posted.  Steve Turner the guitarist from Mudhoney has put out a several solo albums.  This show was from a tour supporting the first one that he had put out.  Good stuff and not very much like Mudhoney at all.  More in the singer/song writer vein.

This might be stripped down and acoustic but Steve has a unique way of playing that even on an acoustic guitar still retains that grungey flavor.  He is kind of chatty too.  Talking about subjects ranging from Skate Folk, Hoyt Axton, and Randy Holden who was a guitar player from Blue Cheer.

This is recorded right off the soundboard at the Larimer Lounge and I think sounds great.  Not sure why I have never shared this out before.  But here it is.  Enjoy.

Mudhoney @ Larimer Lounge, Denver CO 2006-09-15 and 16

Mudhoney rolled into Denver back in fall of 2006 for a two night stand at the Larimer Lounge.  A nice treat for us since they didn't play a whole lot of shows that year.  They were on tour for their new album Under A Billion Suns.

Mudhoney played a different setlist each night too with only a little bit of overlap.  I love bands that can do that. Nothing worse than going to see a band two nights in a row that boringly plows through the same songs each night.

I think these recordings sound really nice too.  I need to get the JK Labs preamp fixed and back in action.

All hail the mighty Down.  Not a lot to say about this show other than I always like seeing these guys.

The sound is a little muddy for the first track or so but then it gets better.  Enjoy

L7 @ The Bluebird Theater, Denver CO 2000-05-23

So recently L7 has been putting out some feelers to see if there was any interest in the band reforming and maybe playing some shows.  A bunch of music press picked up on it and it seems like they might be actually be going to do just that..  Let's hope so because I always enjoyed seeing them live.

A new album would be cool too but I would settle for seeing them bring the rock again live.

That got me to thinking about the last time I saw them in Denver way back in 2000.  I realized that I had never transferred this show of the minidisc masters or shared it in anyway.  It's a pretty decent sounding live recording and I hope you dig it.

Lucero @ The Gothic, Englewood, CO 2006-10-21

Here is a really nice sounding Lucero show from what might have been the height of my fandom.  I was obsessed with this band at the time.  I'm still a big fan but my fandom has cooled off a little bit.  This was on the tour for Rebels, Rogues & Sworn Brothers so it's pre horns and that old familiar twang was still intact for the most part.  Not bagging on what they have evolved into.  They are still an amazing band.

Added bonus in addition to the Gothic show is a Ben Nichols solo set from Independent Records earlier in the day.  I had forgotten how great that one sounded.  Surprised I hadn't shared it before now.

As always go support the bands you love by seeing them live and giving them your money.
They are working hard for you.  They are coming back to Colorado for a 3 night stand at the Gothic for a New Year celebration.  It's going to be a barn burner.
