LDB Vintage Series #010
Hi there! After closing both my Master and Special series I took a break from seeding, enjoying life and most of all preparing for a new series! This is not going to be as frequent as my previous ones, I'll be seeding shows from time to time so don't expect massive volumes here.
Why a "vintage" series? Because music in the 70's and 80's was really something...so different, so special with "that" kind of sound which you don't find anymore. That was the era of real music without the internet, of long tours and enjoyable live shows spanning from metal to new wave, progressive, jazz, fusion, pop. So many bands were born and disappeared during those
I am then celebrating the 70's and the 80's and their unmistakeable sound in this LDB Vintage Series. You will find many bands I have never seeded in the past but that I still enjoy listening to. Most of these come from low generation tapes that were traded around that period, many radio broadcasts and overall lots of surprises.
Hope you will enjoy this new series!

Coming to volume 10 already, and already covered quite a wide range of "sounds" of 70's and 80's spanning across reggae, heavy metal, new wave, gothic rock, folk and country. Punk was missing, though. Being a progressive rock big fan, I confess not being very comfortable with punk
and its "two notes" songs that at the end gave a hard time to genesis, ELP, Gentle Giant or Jethro Tull. Nevertheless its contribution cannot be neglected and bands like The Clash are somehow in the history of rock. By the 80's they lost their wild nature and positioned them in a more "poppy" fashion. This is taken from that period, from a nice radio broadcast in Belgium, which was basically the beginning of the band's disintegration. They would last 4 more years before splitting up.
Sounwise this is an almost perfect quality and the band is still on fire. I believe this is one of the earliest shows with Terry Chimes on the drumkit since he had rejoined the band.
