DIME - Magma - June 23, 2010 - Le Triton (Master)

LDB Master Series #247

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. PLEASE DO RESPECT THIS WISH and enjoy the music in lossless form.

I was not supposed to seed this one but having read all the thread related to the recent Magma show and as an appreciation to those seeders that DO share their effort here at DIME, I thought I would please more than one magma fan over here. The show is not complete: I spent the first half sitting in the first row (could not really stay in front of the band taping!) then I moved backwards on the second half and taped it. Soundwise this is excellent, hope you like it.

Let me also spend a few words regarding those "fans" mentioned in thoses threads that do not explicitly share their recordings but do indeed download and take pleasure from somebody else's recordings. I've been long enough in this hobby to remember back in the 80's and 90's where you had those shitty 'not for trade' lists that you could see but could not listen what was in them, just like young kids that have their teddy bear and do not want their friends to touch it. These days are long gone. Now the internet brings in a few minutes a concert that has been just recorded to the other side of the world. Gems are unearthed and shared just for the pleasure of receiving a 'thank you' from an unknown folk living in Australia. There is no more 'rare' and 'common' recording, no more f***ing 'not for trade' lists. And honestly, if you own a rare Magma soundboard, can you really be considered 'privileged' or 'more important' or 'luckier' than the others? Thanks god, there are more important things for which and may gain respect from others...

People who still live with the myth of being the only ones to be able to listen to a bloody Magma recording in DC are just poor gents who probably just have no clue about what are the real priorities.

I will attend Magma show in Cergy on November 27th. If any of you are there, let's have a beer (or two) and celebrate Magma!


PS: In the 'videos' folder you can find some video excepts that were show by a friend with a camera, just to give you a feeling of how that was...


  1. Wow a huuuuge thank you! just started in on the first notes and it sounds like one of the most passionate performances of E-re I've heard and in near SBD quality. THANK YOU!


  2. To ldb, whoever it may be! It is really funny to read your whining and wish for respect! There is just one little minor detail escaping the scheme of your big thoughts. Sometimes, artists don't WISH to have concerts being spread on the net or given away, there are many reasons for this but WHERE is your respect for THIS? You're not different than the people you criticize (the non sharers) and on this specific point, you are actually their true brother! So what about seeing the big picture by starting with "what if I asked the artist" ..... ?

  3. mmm is magma such a band? I don't believe so or their music wouldn't be seeded on Dime. I'm pretty sure taping is allowed at their concerts, if not it wouldn't be hard for management to ask the person with the big noticeable taping equipment to take it down or leave. Most artists recognize the advantage of sharing their live music with the fans for free.


  4. Taping Magma is allowed and - as far as I know - their recordings are freely available. So the 'anonymous' (not even the courage to sign...what an asshole!) should first think and then write. For all others, hope you will enjoy the show! Ldb
