Ramones - Showplace, Dover NJ 9-19-76

This show is an audience recording. The band played two shows in 1976 at the Showplace in Dover New Jersey. The first was June 10 and the second was September 19. I'm not sure this show was recorded on either of those dates because Joey introduces I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend as the next single, and California Sun as the b-side of the next single. That suggests, according to the gigography, this show is from CBGB  January 30 or 31, 1976 of February 1, 1976 because that single was released in February 1976. Anyone have other ideas? Track 14 cuts off and the beginning of track 15 is cut off probably due to tape flip. Sound quality is good.

Bad Brains - 1979 + 1983

The Max's show is a soundboard recording. The first song is the last song of the first set and the rest is the second set. My cassette dates the show as 2-79 but some expert somewhere has determined this show is actually from the December date I am using. There's a bootleg of the complete first set around. Does anyone have it? Sound quality is mostly excellent. The 1983 show is also a soundboard recording with excellent sound quality. Can anyone identify the location and exact date.

Dead Boys - Max's, NYC 1976-1977

Both of these shows are audience recordings. I got them from one of the guys involved in taping them. One of the guys kept the originals and he first copied them onto 8-track tape and from that onto cassette tape. So my tape is 3rd generation. There's no date on the tape only that it's from Max's during the long hair days. The first song of the first show has been posted on Youtube by Johnny Blitz and he dates the show to the date I am using. The second show is on the same tape but must be from later in 1977 because they plays the songs in the order of how they appear on the album and someone in the audience is yelling for them to play Anarchy In The UK to which Stiv replies Johnny Rotten is in the audience. So, this show must be from CBGB sometime around the time the first album was released in October. Anyone else have any ideas? Sound quality is good on both.

Here's an audience recording by a legendary band. The nice surprise here is the playing of a new song titled Teenage News which was never properly recorded by The Dolls.

There is a bit of distortion during the first songs but sound quality is good.
