Ballsdeep how notes: Caught the Portland show 3 nights earlier, but skipped Sacramento, so I'd have a little money to play with in Reno. This was a good decision, as Sacto was the infamous show where Duff got hit with a Corona bottle half-full of piss, and they ended the show about an hour after it started. This tape, considering my seat, came out most excellent, as I was basically dead center, but 4 rows from the roof. Lawler is a "perfect circle", however, so the sound, to these ears for a D3 with supplied mic, is pretty damn sweet. Another "best ever" version of "Double Talkin Jive" and a seldom played "Yesterdays" are the highlights of this set. And, before the encore, some dipshit decided to light either some firecrackers or bottle rockets, so Axl refused to come back out for "Paradise City", which is understandable, as nerves were frayed from the night before, and Axl DID warn the crowd during the show to behave. They did not, so he bailed early....no pun (Bill Bailey) intended...Big thanks to rockphantom for the upload, and I may have one more GNR uncirculated master to dig out of the tape box.

---ballsdeep OUT!

Rockphantom's notes:

IMPORTANT NOTE: I'm new to the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and am eager to meet new friends who would be interested in attending (and taping) rock shows together.

If you'd like to join the taping community, please let me know...
Going to concerts with friends is MUCH MORE FUN!

Next stop for the Nightrain is on August 3rd, 2016 at AT&T Stadium on Arlington, TX
The 25th anniversary of the GREATEST Guns N' Roses performance of all time!

In addition, I'll be at the Guns N' Roses concert at NRG Stadium in Houston, TX on August 5th!
My credit card is in a GN'R related Coma...

URGENT REQUEST: I am in need of contact information on the individuals behind the bootleg labels, Lost And Found and Bullet Records.

REQ: Would someone PLEASE pick up a 2016 Guns N' Roses tourbook/program for me at one of the upcoming shows?
I'll have my hands full at the Texas concerts. I won't be able to hold any merchandise while, "taking care of business".

REQ: Any of the commercial Guns N' Roses 2016 bootleg releases in FLAC format. Download them. Don't buy 'em!

REQ: Any uncirculated Guns N' Roses audio/video from 1985-1993 in lossless format.
Does anyone have a recording of the Guns N' Roses performance at the Astrodome in Houston, Texas on September 4, 1992? If so, please share!

REQ: All access passes for the 2016 GN'R Texas shows.

I plan to upload this recording to DIME, The Trader's Den, and Usenet (a.b.sounds.lossless, a.b.sounds.flac, a.b.sounds.lossless.bootlegs).

You are welcome to upload this recording to any blog/file locker/forum/non-music themed tracker as long as the *ENTIRE* file set is available for FREE download!

I don't want anyone on Earth to spend a penny on this recording!!
Respect my wishes, eBay parasite SCUM!!

A word to the wise...

There are several eBay parasites among us, the worst offenders are: asht-ada, Fortus_2008, and layitdown.

asht-ada is ultra scum! This individual has shamelessly downloaded torrents from DIME/TTD and then repackaged them for sale on eBay.
If you've uploaded a recent recording by AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, The Stones, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, or GN'R, among others, there is a very good chance that asht-ada is illegally marketing it!
Check out the eBay listings of asht-ada here: http://www.ebay.com/sch/asht-ada/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=

In the immortal words of Jeff Spicoli... WHAT A DICK!!

Fortus_2008 is another vile DIME/TTD predator who markets shows that have been uploaded by enthusiastic fans. This parasite specializes in Guns N' Roses live recordings.
Take a look at the Fortus_2008 eBay listings here: http://www.ebay.com/usr/fortus_2008?_trksid=p2047675.l2559

layitdown is another spineless leech who has made big bucks by trolling the trading scene and passing off homemade CDRs on ebay as "Promo" releases...
Get a load of layitdown's counterfeit homemade "Promo" GN'R releases: http://www.ebay.com/usr/layitdown?_trksid=p2047675.l2559
or check out layitdown's feedback here: http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=layitdown&ftab=AllFeedback

Who are these criminals kidding?!?

These assholes have profited off shows I have recorded (GN'R Las Vegas 2016) and will attempt to profit off of any hard rock master that you've shared in good faith!
If you have been ripped off by these degenerates, please take a moment and contact eBay's Verified Rights Owners Program (VERO) at: 866-322-9106 (USA only) or http://pages.ebay.com/vero/intro/

File a report claiming that your intellectual property has been illegally marketed. If enough of us do this, these thieves will be banned from eBay!

I'd also like to make it known that those Japanese CDR/DVDR "Pro-CDR" bootlegs you see on eBay for ridiculous sums of money can be easily had for $25 or less in Japan.
Don't become a sucker! "Pro-CDR" bootlegs of downloadable content are considered a joke among hardcore collectors!
To prove how little value these things hold, head over to http://www.fromjapan.co.jp/en/ and search for: Guns N Roses 2CD.
You will be amazed! If you MUST own these things, import them directly from Japan. You'll save significantly!

As a savvy DIME/TTD user, you may believe that the marketing of free fan recordings does you no harm.
Be aware that I've been in contact with tapers who will NOT share their master recordings out of concern their work will be repackaged and sold!
Bootleggers who use free fan releases to make easy money... HARM ALL FANS!!

Tip: You will learn much about the fascinating Japanese bootleg culture by searching Twitter.
