CD1
1.-the drowning man
2.-in your house
3.-splintered in her head
4.-the funeral party
5.-the figurehead (early version)

12.-play for today
13.-a forest
14.-forever 

Encore 1:
15.-one hundred years (early version)
16.-faith
17.-killing an arab 

This is a very good concert to have. It was included in a serie of a eight appearances from the last leg of that 1981 Picture Tour. In this serie the band starts playing songs from the upcoming Pornography Album early 1982 and gave us some early version from The Fifugrehead, The Hanging Garden and 100 Years.

The sound is good, coming from al old tape, I don`t know which equipment was used in the transfer but it`s a good one. Unfortunatelly the last song, Killing and arad it cut almost at the end of the song :-(

The hanging garden is cut at the very end and one hundred years starts with a fade in, maybe a tape cut off during the recording or during the transfer.

Share this one and no recompress or trade in mp3 source!!!

Do not sell this recording.
Trade freely and losslessly.
It's barely in stereo already.
But it is live Quadrophenia.
one of my 10 favorite tours ever.
comments:
  This is a complete Quadrophenia show from Boston Garden. It
is better in some parts than others, both in recording and
performance. Quality is about average for a 73 Who aud,
nothing great, but close to the source tape. I didn't notice anything
missing from the concert. Not my favorite My Wife (kinda
rough), but the Punk meets the Godfather, Dr. Jimmy,
the Real Me I'm one, 5:15 sea and sand, and drowned
sound pretty good in this show, and Roger sounds
very strong in See me, feel me. This is the longest
Keith show I've heard from Boston. Overall a good show,
for Quadrophenia probably not their best but still good.
If you prefer, disc 2 can be started with track 11.

Reviews

Again from Bilko we get another essential two disc set, containing even more superb quality studio outtakes from 1956 to 1969. Volume 3, housed in the familiar long fold-out cover with unique color photos, studies Elvis working on some excellent songs, especially those from Memphis in 1969.
Elvis was at his consummate best at his Nashville sessions in the early 1960's. He worked on lending his voice to many different styles during his tour of duty in Europe, and the sheer focus he brought to the songs he recorded when he returned to civilian life is stunning. Of course, the material didn't always live up to this standard, as we are all aware. Songs like "Something Blue", "Fountain Of Love" and "I'm Yours", heard here in interesting multiple alternate takes, are average at best for the greatest recording artist of the 20th century. Every song from the March 18, 1962 session (not 1961, as the cover states) sounds like a watered-down version of an earlier Elvis number -- "Gonna Get Back Home Somehow", for example, despite containing a tough, rockin' groove, lacks distinction. "(Such An) Easy Question" gives us Elvis doing his very best Dean Martin imitation (with a touch of Bing Crosby), the full alternate take being slower and actually sexier, for what it's worth.

The highlights of the first disc are, undeniably, the outtakes from the June, 1961 singles session which produced "Little Sister" and "(Marie's The Name of) His Latest Flame", along with another taste of Elvis ripping up "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" in New York on February 3, 1956 (!). The Nashville date in June was guitar god Hank Garland's last work with Elvis before a car accident sidelined his career -- his titanic and downright nasty solo runs throughout "Little Sister" are just "work outs" in the versions we get here, and they're still great! I wish Elvis had chosen this style of the song when he did it on tour in the seventies, it's perfect. As we hear on this set, the early takes of "His Latest Flame" (can't believe Bobby Darin had first chance to record this and passed) began with an unimpressive organ-based arrangement -- the song doesn't sound very good at all. Some of this material was released in the UK 15 years ago on "The EP Collection, Vol. 2", but we get more of it here. The switch to a driving piano with more intense "Bo Diddley" beat made a classic later on that night. Finally, there is the 21 year old tiger in New York, bantering with his band and nearly nailing "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" on the first take -- Scotty hit a few bum notes in the solo. Elvis would never again sound this innocent, yet powerful, after the 1950's. How I hope more of this material surfaces in the future!

With disc two Bilko again saves the coolest for last with more outtakes from Elvis' landmark American Studios visits in January and February, 1969! We are privileged to hear another session reel containing relevant studio chat, mistakes, and changing arrangements! It is a genuine thrill to monitor over nineteen minutes of Elvis working on "True Love Travels On A Gravel Road", a wonderful love ballad released that year on "From Elvis In Memphis". There's a magnificent rehearsal take (also found on Bilko's 'American Crown Jewels') with just voice, piano, bass and drums that will make you weep. There are uptempo run throughs (some with "naughty" words), Chips Moman actually cutting off a take in mid-verse ("Get that tempo right."), and Elvis and Reggie Young discussing the chord changes (yes, that's Elvis' acoustic on there too). You learn why these recordings are some of Elvis' very best -- they were all committed to making great music.

On "And The Grass Won't Pay No Mind" the mutual respect is apparent as Elvis tosses organist Bobby Wood some headphones ("You want earphones Bobby? Right here, over the wall."). There are attractive, rowdy and undubbed versions of "Power Of My Love" and "Rubberneckin'", plus another nice rehearsal mix of voice, piano, bass and drums on "It Keeps Right On A-Hurtin'" (El sings a line of "Only The Lonely" before the intro). It's fascinating to imagine what Elvis' voice would've sounded like on "Come Out, Come Out", which was recorded in instrumental form when he was out for a few days with a cold. The tune itself is slow and swampy, featuring a tremelo-laden lead guitar line -- Elvis would've really done well with it. Now all we need are "Poor Man's Gold" and "Memory Revival" to complete our studies of the "lost" songs from American.

As I've said before, Chips Moman played the same role for Elvis Presley in 1969 that Sam Phillips did in 1954-55 (and Steve Binder did in June, 1968). Someone with a feel and an understanding of the artist he was working with, and the vision, determination and confidence to see it through. Elvis' work at American Studios yielded best selling records and critical accolades. The fact that Tom Parker was somehow unable to get Elvis working with Chips and American ever again is yet another reason to be unimpressed with his management of Presley. At least we got what we got. And now there's more of it!

Strangely, the disc ends with a couple more early sixties outtakes (including another version of the excellent Don Robertson ballad from 1961, "I Met Her Today") that are a jarring contrast to the soulful rock glory of Memphis 1969. In any case, this series remains absolutely essential to any serious Elvis fan. If you're reading this, that means you!

not a bad one to see either.


VIDEO : Mpeg-2, 720 x 576. 25 fps, pic ratio 4.3. PAL
AUDIO : AC3 Dolby Digital, 48000 Hz, stereo 38.4 kb/s

This is the other chapter in the Daves collection. Up to now with very minor exceptions everything has been taken from the master tapes. But of course Mr D had access to many others also. In his colelction there is a large number of U-Matic tapes. If you don't know u-matic is the studio standard video tape used back then by many TV studios. The tapes are huge easily 6-8 times the size and weight of a vhs tape and of course far better resolution / quality.

I have checked thru all of these and many again are much  better quality than circulating copies. It is to this resource we go next.


These will be with original sound though many will feature as sound upgrades eventually with my two mates Yassou and Madhasse helping out

Notes: The first of two nights in Vancouver for the "Stain" tour, it was a pretty large crowd for a sunday night in a small club. I can't exactly remember how many people attended, but certainly it was near full capacity. There was a small second floor balcony-like set of bleachers set up above the main dance floor directly in front of the stage. I got in up there at the front row and center and mounted my microphone a few feet ahead of me above the crowd. Completely un-obstructed view and sound and still very much up-front and center, I had a great view from a 45 degree angle above and facing the band. I wish I had a video camera at this show, as it would have been a great spot to film from. It sounded great up there being eye-level to the PA speakers that were hanging from the ceiling. Perfect sweet-spot mid-way between the stereo PA system but still close enough to pick up the live stage sound and still far away from 95% of the crowd, I captured a very well balanced ambient sounding concert recording.
I'm amazed at how much improvisation the band does and how much more agressive the songs were when played live. I taped the next night's show as well, and while the set list is basically the same, the songs have many differences. This was (and still is) a great live band, always taking the tracks in new directions and not fearing the "clams" that would sometimes come up. I always thought the albums were weaker than their live show (not to say the records were weak - far from it!) because they blew my mind live!
The tape turned out quite well, in fact I would say it is in my personal top ten concert master recordings to date. I'm glad I spent the extra few dollars on the audiophile grade cassettes. Sony metal Master tapes are housed in shells made of ceramic material instead of plastic (think  shower tiles instead of pop bottles) using some of the best audio tape ever made for consumer use. These cassettes are not the standard run-of-the-mill variety but high-end high-grade and high priced to match. While I could find average good tapes for a couple to a few dollars, these cassettes cost me something like 15 or 20 dollars each. Google them. If you find some, and they're cheap, buy them! I'll buy them off you!
I played the tape back after re-aligning the playback head to track the original recording. Analog azimuth adjustment is critical for proper playback. My old WM-D3 always had azimuth drifting issues, as the heads were mounted on the same hinge as the door. I think that everytime a tape is inserted or removed, the heads shift a little bit. Both sides were independently remastered to digital, played into the computer flat. There were live analog recording level adjustments made during the first song, which I have smoothed out to be less noticeable. The original digi-version is as the tape is : loud and clear but a little thin of bass. I usually play tapes though an analog EQ to make fixes to the sound balance of lows to highs, but in order to achieve the desired results there would have been an extra layer of noise from the EQ. I used a Wavelab parametric EQ plug-in to digitally boost bass +10dB below 200Hz as well as adding a 1kHz spike boost (vocal definition), a 2kHz wide drop (guitar squeal cut), and a small 10kHz plus raise (slight extra cymbal sizzle). I widened the stereo field by 25%, balanced the two channels (left side was cut by 2 to 3 dB to match the right) and ran it through a final limiter (no peaks above -0.1dB, but no compression) although the levels only touched 0dB a few times. There is still ample headroom in this CD. I fought the loudness war and I won!
I haven't got any "real" coverart but have made some artworx scans of my master tape and cassette cover with ticket stub. It is a start to some real photoshop-y art project. If you make something for a true cover, please share with the others, and please email me a copy of your contribution to the coverart pool!
Please share this recording freely - don't buy or sell it, as that's just not right. The band owns the rights. Send them some cash if you really like this! Burn discs freeely for your friends and neighbours, upload it somewhere losslessly, press it on vinyl, whatever! Give! Please if you're giving it to someone who will re-share it, provide them with a data disc of the original FLAC fileset. Don't try re-ripping those audio CDR's! Please don't EnCrap to eMPty3 unless for temporary personal use only. Delete all eMPty3's when done. Better yet if you want lossy files - get your hearing tested! Friends don't let friends listen lossy! Smash your IPood, you festering nerd!

Paul McCartney 2014-07-09 United Center Chicago, IL

PAUL McCARTNEY
United Center
Chicago, IL
07/09/2014


Recorded by Roy Martin using a set of Sound Professionals SP-CMC-8 (with
AT hyper-cardioid elements installed) from Section 120 Row 8.

Captured as a 24-bit/96kHz WAV file using a Zoom H2n.

THIS IS A 16-BIT / 44.1kHz FILESET FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN BURNING AUDIO CDS.

SP-CMC-8 > SP-SPSB-11 box (bass roll off switched off) > 24/96 WAV (Zoom H2n) >
downsampled to 16/44.a (using Cool Edit Pro 2.0) > Huge WAVs split (using
CD Wave Editor) > SBEs corrected (using Trader's Little Helper, '-fixed' removed
from the file names) > FLAC Level 8 (using Trader's Little Helper)

No EQing done, so salt & pepper to taste.

One of the most awesome concert experiences of my life.  I was at the far corner
of the stage, house right, overlooking Brian Ray's guitars and Paul's black piano.
Immediately underneath me was the performer's entrance to/exit from the stage. 
It was incredible to be within a few feet from a legend, Sir Paul McCartney, as he
stode to and from the stage.  What else was cool was the occassional gestures I
received from Abe Laboriel Jr.  I was wearing a huge 2X white pinstriped Chicago
Cubs jersey.  I figure Abe's a Cubs fan because he smiled and waved at me on a
couple of occassions.  It was even more incredible that, at the finale of
show, I stretched out my outreached hand and he, Himself... The Legend...
gave me a high-five as he passed by.  To have only momentary physical contact with
Sir Paul McCartney is a magical experience for this life-long Beatles fan. 
A memory that I will enjoy for the rest of my life.

Unfortunately, it wasn't the best sounding location to record from.  The mics
were hat-mounted, pointing almost straight up as the amps were suspended high
above me.  There's a little bit of mic handling rumble when I moved my head in
either direction.  (Try standing perfectly still at a Paul McCartney concert!) 
I was quite paranoid as I was merely a few feet from security and I don't mean the
arena's hired rent-a-cop idiots.  I mean, the REAL McCartney security dudes
who put their arms around the artist, hold the flashlights, and escort them off the
stage.  So, I had to maintain a superlow profile and this recording does not
represent my preferred choice of mic technique.  The crowd was pretty respectful
around me, considering McCartney attracts an... err... let's say a 'very interactive'
audience.  You can hear them shout out to him as he walks by me (right before
"Day Tripper," right before "Yesterday," and as he walks by at the end of the show.
What a great concert.  I still can't believe I got to high-five the Man.  Enjoy
and a shout out to all you McCartney fans out there.

Notes:
This is my 15th transfer in the series. Not previously circulated as with all my masters. I will rate this show and the recording as VG+ to Ex-. There is a tape flip cut after "Clap" completes and before "Make It Easy" starts losing no music at all. There is a small cut in the "Drum Duet" at 1:51 due to accidentally hitting the pause button Only a couple seconds lost. and a seamless non noticeable tape flip cut at 5:06 of "Awaken". This was recorded from Section 225 Row C Seat 12. Enjoy this excellent presentation of the "Union Tour" In The Round with an 8 piece band. Too bad Close To The Edge was dropped from this set.
Enclosed in the Torrent is EncodeProcessLog, SBEsAudioFileCheck, shntool_len file, shntool_info file, FFP File and Verify.
Do as you wish for your own personal use but please do not alter any of the files here if you trade or torrent this elsewhere later on. No artwork or snazzy titles please this is a fan transfer not a bootleg.

"Beetle Clasher" (Tarantura)

Lineage:  Original silvers => Unknown CDR generations => CDR => EAC => FLAC

Got this one in trade a few months ago; a near-perfect soundboard from the RAH in
1989.  I don't know any more about the lineage than what's above; sorry.  Both
sound and performance are excellent.  I believe that the Beatle reference in the
title is due to the fact that George Harrison was in attendance (although I don't
think he played) that night.

Track Listing:

Disc 1:
(1)  Crossroads (8:14)
(2)  White Room (7:09)
(3)  I Shot The Sheriff (8:20)
(4)  Bell Bottom Blues (5:59)
(5)  Lay Down Sally (7:10)
(6)  Wonderful Tonight (7:31)
(7)  I Wanna Make Love to You (8:03)
(8)  After Midnight (5:30)
(9)  Can't Find My Way Home (6:58)

Total time:  69:59

Disc 2:

(1)  Same Old Blues (17:37)
(2)  Tearing Us Apart (7:09)
(3)  Cocaine (12:37)
(4)  Layla (12:50)
(5)  Solid Rock (5:02)
(6)  Behind The Mask (4:28)
(7)  Sunshine Of Your Love (17:08)
(8)  Closing (1:21)

Total time:  78:18

Bruce Springsteen 1977-03-14 Mid-Hudson Civic Center- Poughkeepsie, NY

“Are You Alive?” Kivak Master Series
Mid-Hudson Civic Center- Poughkeepsie, NY
March 14, 1977
Audience Recording
Cassette>CD>Wav>CD Wav Editor/Magix/Roxio

This 13 song show is an all out thrill ride! The setlist is sweet including “Don’t Look Back”,
“Something In The Night” and “Action In The Streets.” This also includes the long version of
Backstreets with the dramatic story interlude with Bruce wishing God would send angels to blow
the town away. Something in the Night is beautiful! The Miami Horns make an appearance during
“Tenth Ave” and the rarely performed “Action In The Streets.” There are a couple of small
glitches with a few seconds of the beginning of “Tenth” missing and a couple of spots in
“Spirit.” But, overall this is a nice recording worth having. Joe Kivak grabbed another good one!

Fanatic Records and Mr Anonymous proudly present the Kival Master Series!

Enjoy!

Reviews
For the Elvis scholar, this series is indispensable, holding mostly pristine quality studio outtakes from Elvis' RCA years, spanning a 15 year period (1956-1970). With Volume 2, another two cd set with great color photos and long fold out presentation, the focus is on sessions from 1960 through 1964, and 1967 to 1969.
Elvis the "studio professional" would be a good way to categorize his early sixties work. He made movies, gave a few live appearances, and recorded music for both film and non-film use. As we know, the musical balance would tip in unfortunate favor of soundtracks while the song quality diminished. On disc one we get a bunch of alternates from the May 1963 sessions (later to be referred to as the "lost" studio album, as the songs were relegated to various soundtrack albums as "bonus" tracks), as well as material from 1960-61 and 1964-67. We hear a super-fine singer, with an awesome studio and session musicians at his command, slaving over very mediocre songs. I'll take the weakest track from the "Elvis Is Back" sessions over things like "Finders Keepers" any day. "Western Union" is infuriating, it is such a shameless rip-off of "Return To Sender", while the bossa-nova styled "You'll Be Gone" (one of Elvis' only attempts to songwrite) is pleasant enough. "Blue River" does rock, in a goofy sort of way, and take two is the official cut (with a bit more distortion). Listen for the Jordanaires goofing up their backing vocals near the end of the tune --this was how it was released on 45 (as the flip to "Tell Me Why") in 1965 !

There's good alternate material from 1961's "Something For Everybody" sessions like"I'm Coming Home", the jaunty Charlie Rich number, which features terrific lead guitar from Hank Garland and from the "Flaming Star" sessions of August 1960. "Summer Kisses, Winter Tears" is a haunting ballad (even better out of the context of the film it was intended for) -- on take 26 Elvis coughs in the middle but they still play all the way through! The best studio recording of the three (!) he made for the amazing year of 1964 (remember the Beatles?), "It Hurts Me", is rendered beautifully in an earlier take -- only the ending needs refinement. What a waste of a collossal talent. Had he recorded more goodies like this one, the Beatles impact on Elvis' reign might've been at least a bit muted. For the hardcore, the September 11th take of "Singing Tree" is here for first time anywhere; it's just about as tedious as the released version recorded the next day (and not very different either).

Disc two offers us some more of the crazy "US Male" sessions from January 1968 -- EP was never sillier or naughtier than this! There's lots of rough language between (and during) takes, just for the fun of the musicians assembled ("Do two more like that and we'll have a complete party album," says Felton Jarvis to Elvis over the talk-back speaker). It has to be pointed out that NO ONE back then knew that anyone would ever hear this stuff -- "underground" releases were virtually non-existant (at least until the Dylan "Great White Wonder" double album put out in 1969). Thus, borderline-bad taste material like the "Wings Of An Angel" jam would never have been played, even for laughs. RCA/BMG is right to withhold this from the general public -- it would be misconstrued by the unknowing masses as "proof" Elvis was a racist. As it is, the outtakes show a loose and swinging rocker, rediscovering himself during these sessions (and I love Bob Moore's stand up bass); takes 1, 2 and 5 of "Guitar Man" from September 1967, feel the same way.

Bilko saves the best for last with material I thought we'd never hear -- outtakes from the American studios visit in February 1969! As they say, "this is the shit"! We get full dubs from the actual session reels with studio chat (some more of the "nasty" Elvis), flubs, and changing arrangements! His singing is so soulful and committed on these sessions, his first in Memphis since 1955, it's a thrill and an honor to be privy to this material. "After Loving You" rolls along for eight plus minutes, Elvis playing guitar along with the house band on this one (a la "One Night"). The crisp snare drum sound of Gene Chrisman is a hallmark of these sessions -- and I love hearing how perfectly placed his fills are on this song -- just listen to his playing during the first verse of the song -- precision, care and passion! Awesome!

"Do You Know Who I Am", not one of the best songs of all time, is illuminating nonetheless. For nearly a half hour (!) you are standing next to Elvis as he tries to master this song! They change the key ("Better for me" he says) and producer Chips Moman reveals himself as a take charge guy, right down to letting Elvis know when he's flat or fine (how often did that EVER happen at an Elvis session?) -- Elvis: "I still miss that fuckin' modulation!" Chips: "No, you hit it!" This is great stuff, even Elvis' comment about masturbation (right around the ten minute mark) -- I kid you not.

Chips Moman is clearly to Elvis at American what Sam Phillips was to Presley during the Sun sessions fourteen years earlier -- a visionary who knew how to get the best out of his artist, musicians, studio and material. He's running the show and we all know what a great result he got. Wonder why Elvis or the Colonel didn't want to work with him again? We get to work with Elvis through "Any Day Now" and hear how close it was in arrangement to the 1963 Chuck Jackson original before the string overdubs. Critic Greil Marcus says Elvis sings this number "with a naked piety ... that cannot be heard in any of his other recordings". "Power Of My Love" is the one found on the great "From Elvis In Memphis" album, sans the overdubbed backing vocals -- he's loose as a goose here!

The "There's Always Me" series presents an excellent study of Elvis Presley, artist, at work; with the American Studios material you can upgrade that to genius at work. Volume 2 contains two essential discs for the serious Elvis fan. Thanks, as always, Bilko!

COMMENT

Two excellent quality soundboards from the Nude tour and two slightly differing shows. The opening La Coruna show is exceptionally clear and crisp and undoubtedly the better of the two. Unfortunately the opening DAT intro is missing which is strange as it was part of the original broadcast this is taken from, and the show goes straight into 'The Future'. The La Coruna show is a very basic Nude tour concert with very little in the way of improvisation - surprising as it is one of the better performances from the tour. The crowd interludes have been edited out by Sabotage and the overall show has been shortened by around 10 minutes because of this. Quality-wise it's above any criticism from me, however there appears to be a minute flaw during 'Batdance' - although it is extremely minor and not worthy of mention. The Tokyo recording on Disc 2 thankfully does include the opening DAT intro and the show has some set-list changes which make it slightly more appealing. The crowd level is substantially higher during this show and is actually a little overpowering in places - surprisingly so for a soundboard - and overall it lacks the sharpness of the La Coruna recording. This has evidently been sourced from the broadcast on Japanese TV and Sabotage have tried to edit it together as smoothly as possible, but it's fair to say the end product is a little hit or miss as the crowd level fluctuates from silent to a roar within the space of seconds. A terrible crime in the world of bootlegging is to edit out parts of the show, and Sabotage are guilty of doing exactly that on the Tokyo recording. The piano intro to 'The Question Of U' (which included Venus De Milo - Under The Cherry Moon) has been chopped out for reasons unknown, and thus makes the show incomplete. It's a shame as the concert includes a phenomenal version of 'Bambi' along with unusual performances of both 'Little Red Corvette' and 'When Doves Cry'. Just a pity Sabotage felt the need to rip out part of the show without explanation in the accompanying booklet. The release includes a 3rd disc containing a professional filmed video broadcast on Spanish TV of the La Coruna concert. The fact this release contains two soundboards from the Nude tour makes this one of the best documents from the tour. The quality of the La Coruna show is superb, but the butchering of the Tokyo recording is (to me) very disappointing.
