1975 was quite a year for live show tapers and bootleggers. Led Zeppelin toured from January to March, Pink Floyd started their in April, the Wizardo label started churning out titles in the middle of the year, as did another massive Rolling Stones North American Tour. Again, Vicky Vinyl was able to secure copies of excellent audience recordings made by local concert taper Mike Millard, who worked in the Audio Visual Dept. at Mt. San Antonio College (Mt. SAC) in Orange County, CA.

“part two” especially clearly shows Vicky Vinyl’s love for the band in every detail and stands high above any output from most of the contemporary bootleggers at that time. This material has since been officially released by the band as a download – under Vicky’s chosen title L.A. Friday to boot! – and subsequently bootlegged on vinyl again from the FLAC files (see last image before the Mike Millard notes).

      Moonstone Records – This is a copy of IMP 1101 & 1102 under a new B&W printed cover

  2. we have a rolling stones vinyl that starts of at an american radio station talking to Peter Rudge, it has stencilled on it /RS75-A
    THEN ON OTHER SIDE /RS75-2
    this has no writing on label and plain white sleeve, any help would be greatly appreciated

    • That LP is ROLLING STONES AMERICAN TOUR 75 VOLUME 1 , originally released with Holly Grail paper labels.

    Glancing at taper info when the name Steve Hopkins came up yesterday… Anyhow, lots of diehard tape heads are familiar with JEMS, an acronym for several long time tapers/ collectors. They found several rocking Mike Millard tapes, presumed lost, they included Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan shows from 1978 and 1980, I would be curious to see a full(er) list of Mike Millard tapes.
    Also, a respectful and belated RIP to Jared H. – the J in JEMS who passed away a little while ago. There is a youtube interview with him somewhere, shot soon before he died. Entertaining to watch…
    Funnily, for us obsessed nuts, someone in the comments noticed a couple of intriguing looking cassette cases- I.e. noticed certain artists/ dates that mightn’t be floating around.
