The Kinks - 1969-10-23&25 - Boston Tea Party, Boston

The Kinks
October 23 & 25, 1969
Boston Tea Party
Boston, MA

Audience recording, Fair quality
mp3 @ VBR 220-320 kbps
Artwork included

Here's a set of vintage Kinks shows, again from their triumphant return to America in the fall of 1969 (after a 4-year imposed exile). This collection, containing the complete shows from 10/23 and 10/25 at the Boston Tea Party, while certainly not a high quality recording (although really not bad for the times), nonetheless provides the most complete setlist and performances from this unique and great period for the band. If you want high quality recording, stick with the Fillmore West show (available here), but for more complete shows and the full-range concert experience (albeit in lesser quality), this is also an important recording for Kinks fans.

Any chance of a lossless link? You've got a great pile'o'Kinks!

Thank you for the files, but the songs are not at 320 Kbps.

Mr. Pleasant,

Yes, you are right. These were made using a variable bit rate (which was a popular way to encode mp3 files several years ago, adjusting the bit rate depending on the complexity of the music), and thus the actual bit rates range from around 220 to 320 kbps, with an average around 250. This was the way I received these files, as I do not have a lossless source for them. Sorry for any confusion.
