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.

Only issue was on first song, where the sound was massively oversaturated - completely thrashed.
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."

COMMENT

This is the first half of the Paisley Park concert, the second half can be found on Paisley Park Extravaganza Part 2. The release begins with an interview by the New Power Generation from July 1995 to promote the "Exodus" album. P (or Tora Tora) is not present, however it is a fairly interesting 8 minute long interview. Up next is a version of 'Mad' played by a DJ and recorded by a crowd member. I'm not entirely convinced it has been recorded at Paisley Park prior to the show starting for several reasons. Firstly the quality of the recording is vastly inferior to the quality of the show recording. Secondly the DJ makes reference to "The Artist Formerly Known As P is in town and will be playing in 20 minutes" - I doubt the announcement would be required before he hit the stage at Paisley Park. The version played is phenomenal and far superior to the circulating version. And so to the Paisley Park show itself. The quality of the recording is excellent, however it is a little bassy and P appears to be having problems with his microphone throughout the first half of the show. The real problem with the recording are a number of audience members standing close to the person recording. They are audible throughout and insist on either shouting inane comments to P throughout, or banging on their tambourine. They do get in the way on  occasion, but on the whole they are pretty easily overlooked. The first half of the show is rather typical of many from the period. There are a few lyrics from 'The Good Life (Big City Remix') added to 'Brick House', and P is constantly addressing the crowd with various bizarre statements, such as "Are men from Mars, are women from Venus? Would you feel like a star if I showed you my....house". Comes as part of Sabotage's 3cd set packaged in a cardboard wrap-around sleeve.

COMMENT

The first half of this disc contains the second half of the Paisley Park 18th June show (the first half can be found on Paisley Park Extravaganza Part 1). The quality is exactly the same as the previous half of the show, and it unfortunately suffers from the same problems with certain audience members as the first half does. This portion of the show kicks off with a great version of 'Big Fun', and the show also appears to have the same microphone problems as the first half with P constantly shouting at the sound engineers to balance the levels out correctly. There is a track listed on here as 'Volkswagen Blues' which appears rather puzzling at first. It is listed on various on-line sites, along with Upton's The Vault book as being an unreleased track, but it is nothing more than a seemingly improvised version of BB King's "How Blue Can You Get" with P rearranging the lyrics to suit his own style - certainly not worthy of being classed as an unreleased track. The show closes with a very lengthy version of the 'Santana Medley'. The second half of the disc is made up of the unreleased NPG 1995 project 'New Power Madhouse'. As with the other discs in this 3cd set, this comes with it's own jewel case and accompanying artwork - intended to be kept with the others in a cardboard warp-around sleeve. One of Sabotage's earliest releases, and a very high quality product containing a great Love 4 One Another Paisley Park concert from mid 1995.

COMMENT

The final instalment of Sabotage's fantastic Paisley Park 2cd set. This particular disc differs from the others as the show featured is the 18th September 1995 show played after a Gold Experience listening party was held. The show is far less structured than many from the same period with far more emphasis on loose jamming and various crowd chants. That said there is a stunning very guitar heavy version of 'The Cross' played. Tracks #7-10 are basically a long jam with various crowd call-and-chants centred around 'Rock N Roll Is Alive'. Next up is the short 15 minute set played after the filming of various video's for the Gold Experience and the Love 4 One Another broadcast on 10th October 1995 (listed as 7th October 1995 on the reverse sleeve). The set includes a version of 'Love...Thy Will Be Done' which P dedicates to Time Warner for releasing the Gold Experience album. The final bonus track is the radio broadcast of 'Rock N Roll Is Alive' by the Minneapolis DJ Tony Fly. The sound quality throughout is consistently excellent, however the 10th October 1995 recording is rather heavy with a fair amount of audience noise. On it's own this is a great release, but combined with the other 2 discs from this 3cd set, it becomes a fantastic addition to an already quality filled release. A stunning early release from Sabotage.

David Bowie Hunky Geordie Tapes Volume 01 (Rev A)

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.

Lineage unknown

I applied noise reduction to remove tape
hiss using GoldWave and retracked using
CD Wav as there were some tracking
issues.

Other notes:
- It appears there is an edit from a
band break between disc one tracks 06
and 07 that exists on my master copy.
- The band also takes a break after
disc one track 13.
- I created an edit at the end of disc
two track 03 as it abruptly cut off. I
put in some crowd noise to fill what
appears to be a small gap in my master
copy.
- Disc one track 09 is worth the
download!
