Mic hit @ 3:02 after Sense Of Doubt - removed.
Change of timbre just before start of Beauty And The Beast is on the source tape.
Volume drop at the start of Soul Love - boosted as best as I could, but still very wobbly.
Unusual loss of a beat just before Star, suggests that a legacy tape flip was joined at some stage.

Tape join between TVC 15 and Rebel Rebel tidied up.

Tape flip during Five Years (Earth was really...opera house).
Note that the muffled sound during Station To Station and following the tape flip in Five Years is on the source tape.

There appears to have been some tape tangle on the first tape.  I removed a small chunk during Changes which was particularly bad, but left the other bits (also again during Changes and during Rebel Rebel, Young Americans and Fame '90) as they were.

Tape flip during Heroes, mended fine.

The sound check is from a completely different source, with sound quality only "fair".

Fix notes:

13th April:

Tape flip between Stay and China Girl loses no music, but does lose the band intros.
The source tape cuts out during Heroes, so The Jean Genie and Modern Love are both missing.
Note that the sound on the first disc, from Stay onwards, does deteriorate (to 8/10).

14th April:

Right channel too quiet on first side of tape so volume boosted to balance.
Gaps between Life On Mars?/Blue Jean and Heroes/Pretty Pink Rose removed losing crowd noise only.

Fix notes:

2nd April:

It's apparent that there was over-miking of the floor toms (present on both versions I tried) causing bass rumble frequently throughout.
Tape flip between Queen Bitch and Fashion during tape flip.  Faded on tape, repaired as best as I could.
Fade out between Heroes and The Jean Genie which clips the start of the latter.

3rd April:

Significant disparity in volume between the two channels, with the right channel oversaturated.  Used iZotope RX declipper tool to restore peaks on right channel for whole tape - successful

Joins between Panic and Detroit and Suffragette City, and Fame 90 and Heroes resulted in minor loss of music to start of latter song in each case.  Join between Let's Dance and Stay lost crowd noise only.
Join betweeen Ashes To Ashes and John I'm Only Dancing loses David saying the name of JIOD!

Unpleasant blare at the start of Blue Jean which could not be fixed without being intrusive.  The sound is a little rougher from Heroes onwards and that's on the tape.

Issue was worse on left channel, so right channel copied over to make it mono.  Ran track through iZotope RX declipper tool to restore peaks, and then matched volume on later part of song to keep it consistent.
It's now listenable, but a distance from perfect.

Recording detail subsequently added by Steveboy after original up:

"It's nice to see my recording of Newport Leisure Centre still doing the rounds, I
think this has been played about with as there is more bass in it, the original
which I uploaded here a few years ago was a bit tinny.

"For the record it was recorded with a Sony portable recorder [WM-D3] can't remember what mic's but they
were external, and was recorded in stereo. I couldn't get the record levels
correct with the pre-show music hence the change in levels on Amazing."

David Bowie Hunky Geordie Tapes Volume 01 (Rev A) (NEW LINKS)

Description:
This is a re-up of the first volume of the Hunky Geordie Tapes, previously upped to MWP in October 2012.  Please note that while it's the same material as in the original torrent, virtually all of the files have been updated: Tin Machine in Wolverhampton is a new recording, all of the recordings have been run through TLH for sector boundary errors, the label art has been added, and all of the text files and MD5s are updated.  Therefore please DON'T seed using the original MWP files

As promised, here's the first batch of the audio transfers which, from this point forwards, are now called The Hunky Geordie Tapes.

For the main part, this consists of transfers from over 100 concert tapes that I bought from Andre Fantarrow: who managed to compile a fantastic collection of almost-exclusively first- and second-gen recordings. Given that the majority date from the late eighties and early nineties, the represent, for the main part, a significant improvement over many of the higher-gen recordings that are in circulation for that period.  From time to time (and starting with this batch), I'll also drop in one from the tapes I collected in the early eighties. They're not as near the master as Andre's, but again, thirty years has seen a lot of degradation for many of the recordings of these gigs that are in circulation, so hopefully they'll complement the main collection.

There are some of Andre's tapes I will not be transferring and uploading here:

1. Any where the gold standard has already been established by Savage Jaw (unless it's a different recording of an SJ gig);
2. Recordings of standard FM broadcasts (such as MK 5-8-90, Montreal 83 and the like), that are in reasonably wide circulation;
3. Needledrops from vinyl (unless they, in themselves, have become rare and difficult to find); and
4. Gigs where a high-quality recording is already in wide circulation, where another version would simply add to the proliferation.

As it stands, it's looking like there will be a minimum of 14 batches of recordings to upload - but that could easily rise to 16 or 17 depending on how it goes. And then there's the VHS to DVD transfers as well!

In all cases, the recordings will come with full details of any tweaks or amendments I've had to make, and with double-sided CD art for every bootleg.

So what's in Volume 1:

HUG007CD - Tin Machine, Wolverhampton Civic Hall, 1991-11-02 - NEW RECORDING.
For me, this is the absolute jewel in this batch. The only copy I had of this concert was my second worst bootleg (SQ 1/10). This is a diamond. Beautiful sound and great atmosphere.

Nevertheless, when I transferred this the first time, I was a bit clumsy with the volume controls and it was too loud, to the point of distortion.  This is a new recording, with some dodgy sound in two songs reworked as well.  SQ 9/10.

HUG008CD - East Berlin, 1990-08-31
A landmark concert, irrespective of what the music's like! I had a fairly average recording of this one before. This one's really lovely sound (SQ 8½-9). Had to do a bit of work to resolve over-saturation on the first two songs, more than happy with the results.

HUG09CD - Iggy and Ziggy, Manchester Apollo, 1977-03-03
This one's one of mine, rather than one of Andre's. I got it in 83 from an Iggy specialist in Stoke, and listening again, I guess it's closer to the master than I ever realised: maybe 3rd or 4th gen. Typical of its age, but a decent, knockabout concert.

HUG010CD - Slane Castle, 1987-07-11
Huge recording (over 900Mb of FLAC). This one required a fair bit of editing and tidying up, and Heroes is a bit of a mess. But overall I'd say it's about an 8½/10, with the second disc a little better than the first.

HUG011CD - Edinburgh, 1990-03-23 AND 24
Two nights at the Royal Highland Exhibition Centre at Ingliston, Edinburgh. For anyone who's got the "Ingliston" bootleg of the first night, this is from a different source tape. The first night had hiss on the tape run-out, which suggested that it may have been a rare higher-gen recording than most of Andre's. It's a decent recording, but needed a couple of major repairs that are a distance from perfect. The second night is the key recording. As well as being the less-frequently seen of the two, it's a really unusual setlist (opens with Blue Jean) and is a beautiful recording.

So that's the first batch. If you want tracklistings or any details, the text file has everything in it.

Notes

RERECORDED SINCE ORIGINALLY INCLUDED IN HG1.
Tape starts way way too quiet.  The first minute was just audience chatter, so I chopped it.  When the band starts, it's a good 12 seconds till it's up to the right volume, so I've done some boosting, but couldn't go any further without adding a lot of hiss.
Tape flip between Under The God and You Belong In Rock & Roll - seamless.
Right channel is shot on Shopping For Girls and A Big Hurt - left channel copied with 0.002 offset.  Goldwave Stereo Center tool then used to boost sides.
Second tape flip in crowd noise between A Big Hurt and Sorry.
Encore break gap @ 11:23 in Heaven's In Here simply removed.

Fix notes:

The first 6:40 or so on this recording was over-saturated.  About 15 seconds into Rebel Rebel the taper clearly realised this, as there were two seconds of extreme quiet followed by a realistic level for the rest of the recording.

I cut the oversaturated section and ran it through the declipper function in iZotope RX, which restores the wave peaks.  It was successful.  I then restored this to the start of the recording and fixed the two ultra-quiet seconds in Rebel Rebel, in Goldwave, as best as I could.  Pretend you don't know I did it, and you won't notice anything!

Tape flip between Ziggy and China Girl, so beginning of China Girl is clipped.

Fix notes:

The big issue with this tape is that it was running slow, dropping pitch by slightly over a semitone.  Speed corrected by a factor of 106% - reducing overall time by 7:43.

One done, this was still quite a messy tape.  Gaps were removed from between tracks 13 & 14 on disc 1, and tracks 8 & 9 on disc 2, without any loss of music
Gaps were removed from between tracks 8 & 9 on disc 1 and tracks 3 & 4 and 13 & 14 with some loss of the beginning of the second song in each case.
There were repairs found between tracks 10 & 11 on disc 1 and tracks 14 & 15 on disc 2, but I allowed these to stand as they were.
The join between 87 & Cry and Heroes, however, was very untidy.  The start of Heroes is clipped and in addition, there is then a sequence of a number of pauses, with some tape wobble.  I have left these as they appeared, but the first minute or so of Heroes is untidy.

Fix notes:

23rd March:

Main issue was massive volue drops in two locations.  Volume fixes were applied to a 55-second section at the end of Queen Bitch and beginning of Fashion, and a 56-second section during Stay.  Resultant hiss was resolved by iZotope RX denoiser tool and Goldwave hiss removal respectively.  A further boost was applied to the opening of Space Oddity, no hiss resultant.
Tape joins were applied between Life On Mars? and Blue Jean, and The Jean Genie and Pretty Pink Rose with no loss of music.
Repairs to gaps were made at 54 seconds in Space Oddity and 15 and 48 seconds in Blue Jean.
Old joins, apparently in original tape, were found between Blue Jean and Let’s Dance, and between Young Americans and Panic In Detroit - all were left alone.
The muffled sound at the beginning of Blue Jean (48 seconds) and Panic In Detroit (trivial) was on the source tape.

24th March

Only fix required was at around 4 seconds into Station To Station for tape flip - minor loss of music.

ARW 2018-06-12 City Hall Newcastle upon Tyne Uk

Yes Featuring Anderson Rabin Wakeman
Quintessential YES 50th Anniversary Tour
City Hall
Newcastle upon Tyne
Uk
2018-06-12

Following seeing the "other" outfit bearing a similar name earlier in the year, my appetite was whetted for the arrival of this version.  Most people have their preference as to which is for them.  Both have their features, both have their faults, but, importantly, both have the capacity to take you somewhere special.
I prefer this version, but nothing I say at this point is going to change anyone's mind one way or another, so I'll go no further in that respect.  Someone once told me "opinions are like arseholes.  Everyone's got one, but most of the time they're best kept private".

If the City Hall wasn't sold out then it must have been very close to being.  A bit of a crackle in the air, it wasn't short on atmosphere.  Three video screens at the back (deja vu all over again?), banks of keyboards to the right, drums to the back left & a few amps & mics in between, all shrouded in just enough dry ice to create an air of expectancy without risk of causing respiritory issues with the audience of "a certain age".

This time around there was to be two sets, split with a 30 minute interval.  No support.

Both sets were based around YES "classics", seasoned with "newer" stuff (post 1980). 
Whatever your prejudices band or material wise, this is a class act. 
Jon's just "high on life" - a happier, hippier person you'll struggle to find, and it's infectious. He IS the voice of YES.

Rick, an imposing figure, repleat with glittery cloak and tongue firmly in cheek to match - a MASTER in curmudgeonly keyboard playing.  Wonderful, wonderful musician, and great to hear the old-school, analogue MOOGs getting an outing.

Whilst Trevor adds a different seasoning to the older YES numbers, they still sound like..YES.  Doesn't pick up an acoustic instruments throughout, but...whilst everyone has their favourite YES guitarist, there were no detractors judging by the smiles and general good vibes that prevailed even beyond the show's conclusion.

I read a comment many years ago on another YES torrent along the lines of "not only is Awaken the best piece of music by YES, but it's the best piece of music - period".  If tonight's anything to go by, even if I don't agree then I can see where he's coming from.  It's huge - bewildering, meandering, captivating...an experience.

Anyway, sit yourself down in a darkened room, put on your headphones and you be the judge.

Everyone there enjoyed the following:

S101 Intro
S102 Cinema
S103 Hold On
S104 South Side Of The Sky
S105 I've Seen All Good People
S106 And You And I
S107 Changes
S108 Rhythm Of Love

I N T E R V A L

S201 I Am Waiting
S202 Heart Of The Sunrise
S203 Awaken
S204 Owner Of A Lonely Heart
S205 Encore Break
S206 Roundabout

The Band:

Jon Anderson - vocals, guitar, harp, percussion
Rick Wakeman - keyboards, keytar
Trevor Rabin - guitar, vocals, percussion
Iain Hornal - bass, backing vocals
Louis Molino III - drums, backing vocals

None of us are getting any younger, including the band.  See them while you can & say "thank you" by buying their music in order to top up their pension funds...
