      An extremely interesting upcoming release from Tarantura! Not very often we can see any live recordings from the Yardbirds featuring Jimmy Page so it's even more great to announce almost completely uncirculated-to-silver two shows from Shrine Auditirium, Los Angeles, CA on May 31st and June 1st, 1968!

      Originally issued as a triple LP set titled Last Rave Up In L.A., these two shows have been reissued only once in late 1990s by Japanese label Goldtone as two disk set, and since then no single bootleg release was given.

      This new four disk set from Tarantura featuring most complete and much upgraded versions of both performances. Discs 1 and 2 collects low gen copies. while discs 3 and 4 are straight rip offs from unplayed copy of original LP set.

      The Lighthouse folsk are also released their new title, and it is a double disk set titled New Haven 1970. Very surprisingly for the label, this time we got something that hasn't been released since many, many years. The August 15th, 1970 show was released only once in the past by the Image Quality label. This new version debut also an alternate source in parts, where basic recording is cut.
