AC/DC 1976-08-24 Marquee Club, London, UK

24 August 1976

Marquee Club, London, UK
\Audience recording of AC/DC's show at the Marquee Club, London, on 24 August 1976, a stop on their 1976 UK Summer Tour, supported by Valhalla.  The tickets were a meagre 85p!  The venue, with a capacity of 700, had 1000 in attendance. The show is incomplete unfortunately, with the first three songs missing - "Live Wire", "Rock'n'Roll Singer" and "She´s got Balls".  The sound quality is far better than on torrent #311446 - a lot beefier and with more presence, and no evident noise reduction (I found the other one to have a metallic sound all the way through, inlcuding the bonus tracks).  Bon's banter with the audience is far clearer and easier to understand.  The music does sound oddly slow, although the pitch is spot on.  Compared to the other one (without the bonus tracks), this one is 42:10 as compared to about 40 mins (without the bonus tracks): however, the discrepancy is not uniform with the track lengths, so this may also be the more complete show. 

1. School Days <5:18>
2. Problem Child <5:22>
3. The Jack <7:54>
4. Rocker <4:10>
5. High Voltage <6:27>
6. Baby Please Don't Go <12:57>

Good audience recording from the Boy tour, but nothing special. It is slightly distant and muffled, there is a strange buzzing throughout much of the show, and an occasional crowd "cheer" is heard.

Normally bands pre-record their appearance on this radio program, but Tin Machine played live on the air glitches and all. This is evident when Hunt Sales has to grab for a new stick at the begining of Stateside. Nice clean and crisp recording, a must for David Bowie & Tin Machine collectors!

justdave's notes:
When I got this it had a lot of sector boundary errors. I decoded the flac files with Traders Little Helper, then re-encoded aligning all sector boundaries and packed it up for sharing I didn't remix, remaster or mess with the recording at all.

Transferred and Circulated for the first time anywhere.

The master recording made on this night was done on (2) C-60 min length tapes.

This originally had 3 tape sides, copied onto (1) C-100 min 1st gen tape.

There are some cuts here.  Beside that,  this is a great recording and well mixed and very enjoyable show.

with Rick's friend Aaron Louis Hurwitz (Professor Hurwitz)


Recording notes:
Track 03 has a brief spot of static @ the 35 second mark,    
caused from a dirty pot, from something on stage or the mixing board.  This is not diginoise.
Track 07 has a quick tape flip at the 45 second mark.
Track 11 has a quick cut @ 1:38 min mark, and then briefly cuts again @ 2:48.

08 Sorry
09 Sacrifice Yourself (fades out)

This gig, in its original download form, sounded very muddy to me - and very bassy. Indeed, bassy to headache inducing levels.

After some experimenting, I found this sounds just great - in my opinion - after I reduced the files by -400 hpf both channels, then -50 hpf Left channel only then added +1 db to the left channel and took off 5db from the right channel. This helped get the vocal a bit more near the centre - it was firmly in the right channel at first. If you are not sure about all this, download a track, like I do, as a test. Except don't try this with I Can't Read - it's awful here after a good start. The gig gets better again after that, thankfully!

Now ... I can hear the pounding drums and those screeching guitars in all their ferocity, and the vocals all clearly, still with power and presence, but without the feeling of thunder enveloping everything in a muddy mess as it seemed before.

Goodbye Mr Ed in particular sounds marvellous.

The performance does dip a bit from I Can't Read onwards, but they pull up their socks a bit for If There Is Something and the rest of the show.

Heaven in Here sounds immense...the Bowie and the band sing and play furiously on this in the latter half of the number, it's something to behold. Indeed, the audience sound wild after this, cheering for encores. I'm Sorry, that follows, has some beautiful guitar on it here - a genuinely moving performance by all concerned. A shame that the Sacrifice Yourself fades out but overall a great show!

Frustrated by a recent heavily-edited remastering of the master tape (April 2013), I decided to
piece together the most complete version of this show from circulating incomplete sources. The
"Never Mind The Bans" CD includes the encore of "Problems", but has less audience chatter at the
beginning and a few minutes of banter/tuning edited out.  The recent remaster is the exact same
edit as this CD.  The boot LP "Anarchy Tour '76", later released on CD with the Pretty Blank
15-CD box set, does not include "Problems", but is more complete at the beginning and includes
all of the between-song tuning and banter.  It also runs at/close to the correct speed, unlike
the "NMTB" CD and the 2013 remaster, which are noticably slowed down.

I extracted both CD sources with EAC and opened them in CEP2.0.  I speed-corrected the "NMTB"
source to match the speed of "PBD12" - linear compression, high precision resample - and opened
both tracks into a multitrack to check for phasing that would indicate time discrepancies. 
Where the banter was complete on the "NMTB" source, I left it untouched.  Where there was more
banter/tuning on the "PBD12" source, I deleted the between-song portions on the "NMTB" source
and inserted the appropriate amount of silence to match the "PBD12" source.  I then silenced
the songs on the "PBD12" source, as the "NMTB" source is better overall sonically.  I mixed
down the two source tracks to a single stereo track (-1.5dB for "NMTB", -3.0dB for "PBD12";
both CD sources are a little "hot", but "PBD12" more so...).  I double-checked all transistions
to make sure the waveform was seamless and saved the mixed-down file.  Wrote up a .cue file,
split into tracks with CD WAVE 1.98, and encoded to FLAC with Trader's Little Helper 2.7.0.

It sounds like a lot of work, but it was only about two hours effort.  The resulting show is the
most complete available, and is fairly seamless, with no awkward jumps or volume shifts as you
might expect.  This wouldn't be possible if the two incomplete boot releases were not sonically
similar and from the same source recording.  It's certainly not as enjoyable as a clean and
unedited transfer from the master tapes, but it will tide me (and hopefully the other five Sex
Pistols collectors in the world) over until such a source is available.

Should anyone wonder, I decided against using the April 2013 remaster in any capacity for a
couple of reasons.  The digital EQ applied by the taper made the recording sound a bit more
crisp, but pretty thin in the low end for my tastes.  In addition, there are some odd things
going on with the remaster looking at it in spectral view.  Three tracks (Anarchy, Submission,
and the "Stop Gobbing" banter have a full and natural frequency response, while the other tracks
all show a steep high-end rolloff from 12000kHz - 20000kHz.  It also seems strange that a fresh
remaster from the master tapes made in January 2013 has the same edits as a 2004 boot release.
Overall, the new source just seemed a little too "fiddled-with" to use for this project.  Ah,
the delightful world of Sex Pistols live tapes!  As a Nirvana guy, I have a deep and newfound
respect for the state of the Nirvana trading community :D

A phenominal audience recording for the period; from the second night of the famous "Rainbow" shows, rumoured to have been recorded by a mate of Woody Woodmansey.
This was recently sent to me on CDR by Bofinken who asked if I could clean it up a bit and torrent it. To be perfectly honest it was so good I had very little to do. I cleaned off a tiny bit of hiss, removed a few crackles and pops then balanced the volume between tracks and channels. There is a cut in "Width of a Circle", the discs had the missing section badly replaced by a section from the officially released "Ziggy Stardust - The Motion Picture", this I obviously removed.

In my opinion this is as good if not better than the famous Maloney Boston recording and must rank as one of the best Ziggy audience recordings. Part of this show has been booted as "Rainbow Theatre" and complete as "Rainbow - The Magic Theatre", It is certainly an upgrade on both of these. The recording was also remasterd and torrented a few years back as "Up yours Reg" by Downunder2 (Steve), I haven't heard this but I'd be suprised if this is any worse.

The running time is annoyingly just over that of a standard disc, how you wish to split it is up to you, the artwork suggest after "My death",  I actually burnt it complete on a 90 min CDR (Be warned: 90 min discs will play on most PC's but not on most home stereos)

A big thankyou to Bofinken for the discs and Steve for the additional background info.
If you have this show already, I'd love to know how it compares. If not, I know your going to enjoy this.

U2 1981-05-11 Rainbow Music Hall Denver,CO

May 11, 1981
Rainbow Music Hall
Denver, CO

Source: FM Broadcast KAZY-FM
Lineage: KAZY-FM broadcast>Cassette tape>CDR>FLAC

I attended this show and recorded the concert when it was broadcast a couple of days later (I have included a scan of the ticket stub). This was the second time
in less than two months that U2 played this venue (the previous date was 3/28/1981). Barry Fey, the local concert promoter, convinced the band to
come back one more time before the end of thier tour, as a result of the positive response to the first show. The band also played the Rainbow Music Hall
one more time on February 27, 1982. It was during these trips to Denver that Barry Fey and Chuck Morris took the band to Red Rocks, and planted
the seed that would become "Under a Blood Red Sky", and finally the DVD (a show I also attended, and froze my a** off), and the rest is history. If you can't tell, I am
very proud of the role Denver, and Feyline Concerts, played in the early career of U2 (which was confirmed by Bono in March 1982, when I met him while I was on Spring
Break, in Phoenix, and was the only one at Wave World who knew who they were. They were the opening act for a J.Geils Band concert. Check out the enclosed picture of The Edge, Larry
and Bono, in red).

This is a first generation tape of this show, although I know other versions of this show exist out there. Unfortunately, I didn't realize this was
going to air until it was on. This resulted in me having to find a tape, and I missed most of "The Ocean". There is also a tape flip gap at the very beginning
of "Out of Control", but not too bad. The only songs I believe are missing from the set are "Twilight" and the encore of "I Will Follow" (played for the
second time!). Also, between "An Cat Dubh" and "Into the Heart" is a station ID for KAZY.

I have not done any "re-mastering" to this, so it is exactly how it aired. I apologize for the slight gap between songs, but my initial transfer to CDR
put these at the song breaks. I tried to re-transfer from the original tape, but the tape broke! This is my favorite concert that I have recorded, and it and the band hold a very
special place for me. Thank you for reading (if you have) this long trip down memory lane, and ENJOY.
