Neil Young 1989-02-20 Civic Auditorium Portland, OR

Neil Young and the Lost Dogs (formerly the Restless)
Civic Auditorium
Portland, OR
February 20, 1989
JP Master in association with JEMS

Aiwa CM-30 > Sony WM-D3
Master Cassette > Nakamichi CR-7A > Peak 5.2 > TC Finalizer (gentle JEMS remaster) > Marantz CDR-620 > CD-R master > FLAC

Disc One
01 Comes a Time
02 Sugar Mountain
03 The Needle and the Damage is Done
04 After the Gold Rush
05 For the Turnstiles
06 Sliver and Gold
07 The Wave of Love
08 Days That Used to Be
09 Heart of Gold 
10 Heavy Love
11 Don't Cry
12 Cocaine Eyes
13 El Dorado
14 Passenger

Disc Two
01 Mr. Soul
02 Cinnamon Girl
03 Down By the River
04 Hey Hey, My My
05 On Broadway
06 Tonight's the Night

If there's any Neil Young era of that I particularly appreciate, it is circa El Dorado. To me, this is the sound of Neil finding himself again, and there aren't all that many documents of the period.

JEMS' brother-in-arms JP was living in Portland when Neil rolled through with a set that sandwiched a lot unreleased material between more familiar acoustic and electric sets, and despite a typically annoying Neil crowd (what is it with his fans and the need to yap and yell?), he did a rock-solid job on the recording.

The master had never been digitized so I ran it through the Nak, though not without problems. We had issues with the tape getting stuck and while it didn't snap, the crinkling left some noise artifacts on a couple tracks, though nothing too obtrusive.

As the tape was a wee bit distant I did a little gentle remastering to lift levels and open up the soundscape. Sounds pretty good to me. Samples provided.

I've credited this to the Lost Dogs as, during the show, Neil renames the band.

Comments welcomed please. JP is reading, too.

Neil Young & The Restless
Brady Theater-Tulsa, Oklahoma
January 13, 1989

Soundboard w/Audience Patches (Dec 2009 transfer re-master)

Lineage:
Soundboard > 3rd Generation > Nakamichi CR-5A (Azimuth Adjust) > MacBook Pro > Audacity > Peak Pro XT
Audience Master > Nakamichi CR-5A (Azimuth Adjust) > MacBook Pro > Audacity > Peak Pro XT

Recording: 2 x Sony ECM33F Mics > Marantz PMD430 > Maxell XLII

DISC ONE
01 Comes A Time (2s Aud patch - Neil acknowledges crowd)
02 Sugar Mountain
03 The Needle and The Damage Done
04 Someday
05 Wrecking Ball
06 For The Turnstiles
07 This Old House
08 Four Strong Winds
09 Heart Of Gold
10 Heavy Love (47s Aud patch which includes first 10s of the song)
11 Don't Cry
12 Cocaine Eyes

DISC TWO
01 El Dorado
02 Box Cars
03 Like A Hurricane
04 Mr. Soul
05 Cinnamon Girl
06 Down By The River (Aud patch after first 3:56 to end and rest of show)
07 Hey Hey My My (Audience)
08 On Broadway (Audience) (false start as Neil forgets the words)
09 Tonight's The Night (Audience)

Some 10+ years ago I did a transfer of this show using average equipment and before I knew too much about digitzing tapes.
That version I traded to Pink Robert and it eventually found it's way here at least in 2006 and maybe earlier.
A few things I realized about that first transfer, I had no clue what I was doing on eq'ing, smoothing the levels,
taking out pops/clicks and likely used noise reduction in the process and had no clue about azimuth adjustment.
In addition, why I didn't patch the missing part of Heavy Love I'll never know.

I've been planning to revisit this show for some time and once I confirmed I was smart enough to not toss the tape after the first transfer (and re-found it),
I finally found time to take on a new transfer.

Anyone that has the previous version knows there are a number of problems with the Soundboard source of this show in volume fluctuation and few pops & clicks.

Here are the fixes I've made:
Smoothed and leveled ending of Sugar Mountain
Smoothed and leveled start of Needle & The Damage Done
Boosted drop in volume in the middle section of Needle & The Damage Done
Removed a number of pops & clicks in the source tape
Regarding the SB tape (3rd Generation) any Eq'ing was very slight,
it always bothered me that Neil's guitar seems to be buried in the mix and the vocals pushed forward
so I pulled the guitar frequencies forward just a touch to help balance it a bit better, this improved the acoustic section more than the electric section.

As for my Audience master, though it's not as good as the Dallas show I taped the next night, all in all, I was not disappointed with it considering the location I was taping from.

So here you have a fresh transfer that makes,  for the first time, the SB/AUD mix complete with no missing sections.

I'll share the audience master soon for those that want it all.

Enjoy!

Source: Dime post by 'Elkevir' -thanks for the original and encouragement to remaster !!
http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=141310

CDR's Trade > EAC > WAV > FLAC Frontend > FLA

Quality: ***** (Sync error fixed by EAC, see you EAC files, please)
Discs: 4
Art: YES

Changes made (Nero 7):
Cross mixed both channels (83:17), drums, voice and instruments clearer
Reduced right or left channels by 5% to centre stereo balance
Cut volume by 1dB, so I could apply slight treble EQ without overload
Applied different EQ to the 2 sources so they match better
Deleted long period of audience noise (no band comments lost)
Cross faded tracks seamlessly into the next track
Fixed digi-glitches at 2.26, 2.32, 2.35, 4.14, 4.24, 5.48, 7.34, 9.33 & 11.41 (d3t02),
2.22, 4.27 (d3t03)
Cut out the 1991 set, poorer sounding Minneapolis set
Now fits on 2 CDR-90s
Kept the original track numbers so they can be split into 3 CDR-80s

Quality: Worth an A+ now
-----------------------------

This is a super recording, especially the powerful version of 'Cowgirl' (Neils' best
ever track IMHO), which I tidied up (details above) so now it is a great listen...

...Enjoy !!

Artworks from the original post are attached, still showing the 1991 Minneapolis set, so
can anybody update it?

8. Diamond Dogs

Notes

iZotope RX2 denoiser tool to dehiss.

Running too fast - speed correction with factor of 92%

Fair bit of rebalancing of volume levels, which were all over the shop.
Cuts out at end of Stay.  Gap before Waiting For The Man removed with fades.
Cuts out end of Waiting For The Man.  Gap removed.
Cut between Panic In Detroit and Diamond Dogs.  Cuts into the latter, slightly.
Tape flip @ 43 seconds into Rebel Rebel.  Join is clean, but sound quality on second part is initially poorer than the start.

Also on the same tape was the Linus Band set, allegedly from a couple of days later. 
I toyed with including this, but decided not to for two very good reasons:
1. Generally agreed that it's a fake, and Bowie's not present on the recording, and
2. It's absolute shite.

OK, this one's a little different.  Ruud upped the version of this from the double silver on 13th Feb 2009; which in turn was taken and torrented on dime by tvc15_it two years later (which is where I got it from).

Immediately I listened to it, I was taken by what good quality it seemed to be, but hidden under an unbelievable layer of thick hiss.  Out came iZotope RX denoiser tool.
Sure enough, it's very clear underneath the murk.  Hint of tidal sound on first side (eccentric tape at some stage in the past), but it's beautiful on side 2 (Width Of A Circle onwards).

Gap in the crowd noise in the false ending of Breaking Glass!  Removed, OK.

Tape flip at the start of Beauty and the Beast - seamless
Abrupt start to Fame (indicating old edit or stopped tape) is on source tape
Extra erroneous beat in Star intro (sound blip) successfully removed
Abrupt join between Star and Hang On To Yourself is on source tape

Led Zeppelin’s longest tour of England would come in late 1972 with 25 dates spanning a two month period, the
band would feature the same basic set list they had used in Japan the month prior that would also be used for
the following European tour and become the framework for the American jaunt in the coming months. The group
would take a short break mid tour for Christmas, just prior they would play two concerts in London at the
Alexandria Palace, a venue that while very architecturally ornate and beautiful, was rather difficult to properly set
up for musical concerts. Led Zeppelin would struggle with not only sound but also the temperature inside being
somewhat cold. With a somewhat cool and lack luster audiences, the band would nonetheless put is two very
enjoyable performances, collected in the new set from Empress Valley.



Alexandria Palace, London, England – December 23, 1972
Disc 1 (55:06) Rock And Roll, Over The Hills And Far Away, Black Dog, Misty Mountain Hop, Since I’ve Been
Loving You, Dancing Days, BronYRStomp,
The Song Remains The Same, The Rain Song
Disc 2 (75:29) Dazed And Confused, Stairway To Heaven (stopped), Stairway To Heaven, Whole Lotta Love,
Heartbreaker
There are two sources for the second night in London, the first is by far the best, a bit distant falling in the good
to very good range with just a bit of hiss. It has been the singular source for all previous titles, Merry XMas Mr.
Jimmy (Lemon Song LS 720809),
Titanic (Image Quality IQ 16/17/18), and Disturbance House (Wendy WECD
52/53). The second source is a short fragment of the first 30 minutes of the concert, is much poorer in sound and
has never been bootlegged before. I broke out the old Lemon Song title Merry XMas Mr. Jimmy for evaluation,
This new title was not amplified as much so it has less hiss and also sounds clearer, brighter and has a warm
sound I find much more easy on the ears, clearly a much better version of the tape.
Second night in London, While this concert is not as good as the previous evenings performance, it is certainly
no slouch either. Again the band is plagued by the temperature of the building and Plant’s vocals do sound a bit
rough at times, the band is so in tune with each other that even an average performance makes for a good listen.
You can hear a pin drop as Rock and Roll ends and Page plays the first few bars of Over The Hills and Far Away,
they do however help Robert out a bit in Black Dog. Plant’s initial good evening finds him talking of good vibes
something that does get a response of Hallelujah from one punter and he also says they left on the heaters in the
bathrooms in an attempt at sarcasm.
Misty Mountain Hop is really good, Page’s guitar has a nasty sound to it and he plays an almost pregnant
transition to Since that again the audience give polite applause to. The pure English blues of Since I’ve Been
Loving You is easily the highlight of the first half, Plant and Page put some really nice nuances to the
performance as they share their musical conversation. Jones switches to the organ for the second part of the
song giving it a very heavy vibe. Tuning is a constant in these cold temperatures, Plant asks the audience if
anyone was there and he gets a loud response. He introduces Dancing Days to zero applause, and while the
other three seem content with the isolation, Plant will continue to create a rapport with the audience, easier said
than done.
The audience sounds bored and impatient prior to Dazed and Confused, they shout at the band but at least
they’re alive! Another good transitional Dazed, each night Page sounds like he is experimenting with different
notes and themes and is slowly working his way to perfection that would come during the European tour in a
couple months time. The audience seems to agree and the song gets the first warm applause of the night.
Shouts of sit down precede Stairway, the band seems a bit harassed by some trouble in the audience, which
Plant addresses as “its one of the hardest numbers to do with a monkey house”, the band then start the piece
over. Perhaps wanting to sooth the crowd and retain the vibes brought upon by Dazed, the band deliver a really
nice version of Stairway that culminates the energy of the group in a positive manner.
Just before Whole Lotta Love Robert tells the audience Bonham has a new drum solo called Titanic, and the
band embark on a glorious 28 minute joy ride of a Rock n Roller coaster. The band gets into a funky
instrumental version of The Crunge and don’t know how to get out of it so they just stop. The medley is the
same as the previous night and has the same effect, awakes the sleeping audience with superb playing from the
entire band and based upon the ovation at the end, their noble quest was successful. The band come back and
dedicates the sole encore of Heartbreaker to Roy Harper. Just prior to Bouree, Page gets into some hoedown
picking that had the audience stomping along, the vibes are finally real.
Bonus Source first released on “Riot House” vinyl album AlexandriaPalace, London, England – December 22,
1972
Bonus Disc (59:00) Stairway To Heaven, Whole Lotta Love, Immigrant Song, Heartbreaker, Mellotron Solo, Thank
You
As a bonus, EV gives us the complete second source of the first Alexandria Palace gig, the recording is
excellent, full range of dynamics and sounds clear and atmospheric almost in complete contrast to the first
source. This brings back a lot of memories for me as the recording picks up an atmosphere the other does not
and was my first audience source for Immigrant Song and to this day is still one of my favorites. A great
addition to this set.
The packaging is nice, both concerts are house in a box with cover art taken from an Italian Magazine feature on
the band showcasing pictures from the event. It seems like the latest trend is to include an OBI and the back of
the box features a live shot of Robert. You open the box and each concert is housed in its own gatefold sleeve
both with the same cover art with the center being different and the back has venue, date, and track listings and
each also feature its own OBI. Simplistic yet classy looking. I like the mastering on this set very much, the
packaging is nice and while it seems these mini box sets are a new fad, when done like this, works most
effectively.

Whole left channel oversaturated.  Replaced with right channel with 0.002 second offset.
First 1:46 of One Shot massively oversaturated.  Recorded at lower level and edited back in, but over-saturation remains.
Gap removed between Heaven's In Here and Sorry during the encore break: crowd noise only.
