and Reviews:

The Digital Dan:

Taken from a first gen analog source, this is a rare show form the brief Semi Tour of Some of the Hemispheres tour.  These shows served as a preview and warm up for the recording of the Permanent Waves album.  This concert has a great performance of both books of Cygnus and worth having for that alone.  There are a couple of sources for this concert.  One is a very distant audience recording with a lot of echo and poor resolution.  The other is a much closer audience tape.  The sound is very "in your face" and the signal is quite strong. It does sound a little compressed and doesn't have the stereo separation of the Oslo '79 show.  The instruments are quite clear and very well resolved.  This is an excellent recording in both sound and performance.  Definitely better than the majority of audience Hemispheres shows in circulation.     As with all Digital Reproductions recordings, it's only available via free trade and never for sale. Just visit the trading links section to find people that will gladly trade this recording for free.
