With Success Comes A Price

I received my first notice from a copyright holder to remove a post. King Crimson to be exact. It has me a little scared. I had assumed I was safe posting bootlegs. Now, maybe not. I removed the post. What do I do now? Shut down the blog? Try to take it private again? I may have a way, but it may crap out like the last time. Your thoughts? Insights? Ideas? Send me an email at blind-pig@live.com or leave a comment under any post.

03/25/75 Complete Snack Benefit Students Need Athletics, Culture, And Kicks Kezar Stadium CA

This benefit concert (S.N.A.C.K. stands for Students Need Athletics, Culture and Kicks) was organized by Bill Graham in 1975 and was broadcast over the radio, and therefore there are many nice tape copies in circulation. This one time only mixture of Dylan/Band/Young was the featured act in a full day's concert that featured many local San Francisco bands, such as Santana and Jefferson Airplane. The appearance of Neil Young and company was merely rumored and Dylan's performance was a complete surprise. Completely unrehearsed, some of this music is great, but mostly it's just haphazard and rough. Dylan debuts I Want You live, but unfortunately he can't be heard for most of the song. Mostly what we hear is Rick Danko shouting the chorus. Hearing the Band without Robbie Robertson is weird at first, but Ben Keith makes up for it very nicely. The oddest thing on this tape is the Helpless/Knockin' medley where Dylan substitutes "knockin' on the dragon's door" for "knockin' on heaven's door".
