Hi Co'

I like the looks of Izzard, Rollins, Weird Al', Robin Williams and William Shatner.

I believe you shared George Carlin a little while back, and great it is too :)

The others look interesting, too, but those five grabbed my interest.


Cheers for all the shares, bud :)


Cheers, Novak

I did indeed share a George Carlin show shortly after his passing last year.
However, since then, I've found three more recordings I'd love to share! :D

Oooooh. I hope George doesn't swear on these ones. I was a little shocked!!!


:D

Looking forward to more George, as well as the others you have in mind.

And thanks for the Eddie that's on his way to my hard-drive. Should be crackin'!!! Have you seen the 'Dressed To Kill' DVD?? Essential live stand-up by anyones standards.



Cheers, Novak :)

I really enjoyed your George Carlin upload. It was my introduction to George, and I was pleasantly surprised by how jaded (but funny) he was. I'd love to hear more of him. Lewis Black would be fun too. Does anyone have any David or Amy Sedaris?

I've recorded 3 Brian Regan shows, Dane Cook, Steven Wright. Unfortunately the Cook and Wright shows are not great quality but the Regan shows are pretty good. I'm sure I've uploaded almost all of them here before.

Anyone have any David Cross!!!!!!!????????????

Is this the official (London Cast) release or something else?

By not great quality, do you mean SQ or performance?
I have long been a Steven Wright fan, not so much with Cook.
Brian Regan is terrific, though, especially his routine about riding on airplanes and having to eat a cold fish head.

I'd love to hear the Steven Wright, regardless of quality.

That guy is a genius.

I keep hoping lossless or new Bill Hicks will show up somewhere.

From the included infor file:


The Rocky Horror Show -
Live at the Belasco Theatre, New York 3-14-75

This is a live recording made on March 14th, 1975 of the
(very short-lived) Rocky Horror Show's original run at
the Belasco Theatre on Broadway. It was taken from a 1/4"
reel-to-reel tape kept by one of the sound engineers at
the Belasco. This source is the same source that was used
on The Website "The Musical World Of Rocky Horror" however......
This is a new rip from the Original Wav files, Completely
retracked and Speed Corrected. I also had to do a lot of
Declicking, due to some imperfections in the Original Recording.
I was extremely careful not to do any editing or to alter the
recording, other than to fix the speed to match the Roxy LP.

I personally have been searching for a copy of this recording
for about 25 years before it turned up last Halloween. After
some trading, I was able to get a copy of the WAV files, and I
went to work to clean them up a bit. This is a mono recording,
but it's the Complete Play, and it's extremely rare because
it has Tim Curry, Meatloaf AND Richard O'Brian in the cast
(who was filling in). This was the 3rd Performance of a three
month run at the Belasco Theatre, and this took place After
the movie was filmed, but Before it was released in the movie theaters.
That in itself makes this a very rare recording. I know of a
few people who claim to have a copy of this for years, but never
would trade it. This version also has no Digi-Noise that is on
the version posted on The Musical World Of Rocky Horror. Both the
mp3 and flac versions posted there have Digi-noise in different places
in the recording. I got a hold of the Original WAV files and they
were not present in the recording, leading me to believe that it
was ripped poorly. I offered to send him a better copy, but the trade never went thru.
I wanted to help share this amazing show with the world
before I have to move to a new apartment. Please share this with
anyone who is a Rocky Horror Fan! They will thank you for it!
I have listened to this show about 10 times in the last 2 weeks, to
make sure I am posting the best possible copy.

Info found on Musical World of Rocky Horror:

This is a recording from March 14th, 1975 of the (very short-lived)
original run of The Rocky Horror Show at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway.
It was taken from a 1/4" reel-to-reel tape kept by one of the sound
engineers at the Belasco. The show opened on March 10th, 1975 so this was
one of the first few performances. It features Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter,
Richard O'Brien as Riff Raff, and Meat Loaf as Eddie/Dr. Scott along with the
rest of the cast from the Roxy Theatre. All sound files contributed by
Justin "Muzzle" Carpenter.

The quality is excellent, and the recording is of the complete show
(including all dialogue). It was transferred from 1/4" reel-to-reel
to a chrome cassette which was played only twice, first to test and
second to record it digitally. It's very listenable, though some of
the dialogue does get very low in volume and is occasionally overpowered
by audience reactions. It's fantastic being able to hear Richard O'Brien,
Tim Curry, and Meat Loaf all on stage together though.

Just an FYI.
Anyone out there like Jim Gaffigan (think Hot Pockets and Cake routines), the guy from the cable show "My Boys" and the ongoing Conan O'Brien piece "Pale Force?"
I intend to do a lossless recording of him live this weekend, and I am hoping to have it all split up and ready to put up sometime soon, hopefully by late next week.
This will be a CD-burnable 44.1KHz/16-bit recording.
I intend this to be a very high quality audience recording, and the "taper" would like to remain anonymous.

I can torrent anything you like. The Steven Wright performance was very good but it's abut hard to hear cause it was recorded on cass with a cheapo GE recorder. Just let's know and I'll get it up asap.

Cheers,
Jim
