LDB Master Series #226

Hello, this is a collection of masters I would like to seed here. I've been taping shows for more than 20 years
and have an awful lot of masters. Most of them are in the old cassette format, some others are on MiniDisc and
others are on CD. I've taped many shows of many artists over the years, so don't be surprised if you will find
many different artists taped! Some shows are already circulating, some others have not circulated through collectors
yet. But most of all, enjoy! They all come from my mastertapes!

Please DO NOT share this music on mp3, just convert it for your own use. Sharing mp3's is the right way to make me stop sharing
music here.

I should have stopped my Master Series but I haven't found a truly nice-sounding show from the recent european Clapton-Winwood tour so I thought it would have been nice to share my recording from last night, which captures the show that was played in Paris. Since I last shared a master of mine (Gabriel in Paris last march), I have slightly changed my recording device, replacing my dear old Aiwa micro with a CA-14 plus a CA-9100 pre-ampli. Actually I have been using it for a couple of months but this is the very first show I have shared here using the new setting. To you to judge if the change was for the better.

The show itself was magnificent. Last time I had seen Clapton was somewhere in the early 90's, so almost 20 years. The addition of Steve Winwood was a definitive plus for me, also because I rate Traffic as one of my favourite bands ever! Maybe a bit short if compared to the US leg from last year. The peak was definetely Voodoo Chile, no doubt about it. Also, just one encore was not the right reward for an enthusiastic parisian audience. Clapton was not very comunicative as usual, and this is also a kind of annoying for me. Nevertheless, a great show. Enjoy!
