Nice sounding Bob show from last night. Recorded about a quarter of the way up in the gigantic Hollywood Bowl. A great Tangled Up in Blue. Why the heck still no songs from the fantastic new album? Occasional idiot talkers. No other issues. Samples below. 

If burning to CD, divide between tracks 9 and 10 (before Love Sick). Not a lot of security getting into the Bowl these days. There will probably be more recordings of this show. 

The band is tremendous, but can we just all say this out loud - Bob's organ playing can be kinda interesting, but his piano playing is often inappropriate and sometimes just plain bad.

The performance / recording... 

The Good: 

Adam's voice was in fine form a can be heard quite clearly on this recording. There is very little audience chatter with the exception of the intro and some crazy femme-on-femme altercation during "Lady" than can be remotely heard. When the audience IS heard it is to great effect. Trust me on this. Adam does take a few liberties with the arrangements of some songs, most noticibly on "Strip". A pretty respectable pull overall. Settings were dialed. Still the distance from stacks and my omnis give this a bit of "roomy" feel needless to say. Alas, I wish the bass was a bit tighter.

Editor's Comments:

This is a pretty clean FM broadcast recording and a nice upgrade to the commonly circulating source, as found on the Internet Archive ( That version has some severe synchronization errors and digital glitches particularly in the second half of the concert. Here is a fresh transfer from an off-air master cassette, recorded and played back on a great cassette deck.

The usable signal is up to 19 kHz, and no FM pilot tone is present. I think the Little Feat Radio Hour broadcast material was sourced from a radio broadcast. The broadcast is not live-to-air, but from an edited pre-FM reel by Nippon Broadcasting Corporation. During the 1970s, channel inversion and reversal was a common practice of their live concert broadcasts. Whether this was done to foil bootleggers, or to provide stereo widening is uncertain, but such processing splits the soundstage in two, and with the slight FM phase offset of 2 samples, has a sort of overdubbing effect. On the negative side, it also cancels some frequencies and emphasizes others. For this release I inverted and swapped the two channels and virtually eliminated the phase offset.

The edits ("//") shown in the set list are as broadcast by LFRH where much of the applause between songs was removed or voiced-over with commentary. I removed the remaining commentary. Some of the transitions are a little abrupt, and there are a lot of them in the first half of the broadcast, with edits between all but 2 tracks.

There were periodic light clicks throughout the left channel of the first two songs of the encore (tracks 13 and 14). I could not coax any automated processing tools to do what I wanted, so these were edited individually. The reason for the noise in this track was that the gain on these first two tracks of Fragment C were boosted about 10 dB. After removing the clicks, I brought the gain back in line with the rest of the material by cutting it down by 9 dB.

- corrected DC offset errors
- restored clipped peaks
- balanced channels and gain normalized
- swapped and inverted channels (there was interference between the 2 channels)
- shortened long fade-in at start
- removed LFRH commentary
- lightly decrackled and declicked
- phase offset correction: -0.06 ms (right channel trailed by 2-3 samples)
- repaired clicks and pops
- decreased gain of tracks 13 and 14 by 9 dB
- joined fragments and tracked

This is a version of this recording that I compiled from two sources. I think we now have the complete recording/performance. 

SOURCE 1 (labeled as 3/9/77): Most of this is taken from an unknown audience > ? > CDR source. This source was apparently missing the last 30 second of t3 and the last 17 minutes of t4. 

SOURCE 2 (labeled as 3/3/77): In September 2012, taperchuck3 posted this source, with detailed lineage, at Traders Den. This source was missing t2, and also had cuts between some tracks. 

Both sources sounded similar (clearly from the same original source recording), but I liked the tone of source 1, even though it has a little hiss (hey, it gives it character). So I kept all of source 1 (mainly because the first 3 tracks flowed with nothing missing, no cuts between tracks). Source 1 cut off around the 45 minutes mark (usually the limit of one side of a 90 minute cassette tape). Therefore, Source 1 was missing the last 30 seconds of t3, which I spliced in from source 2. Also, source 1 was apparently missing the last 17 minutes of t4, which I spliced in from source 2. 

The correct date is March 9, because McLaughlin announces that it was Zakir's birthday. 

Enjoy, because this really is one of THE best quality Shakti live recordings that exists. The quality really is excellent and the venue sounds intimate. I can say this with confidence having recently compared the quality of all of the live Shakti recordings I had in order to get rid of some and trim down my CDR collection...

Brian Eno - Music For The Great Gallery Of Venaria Reale (AUD/FLAC)

(Audience FLAC)

About 1 hour of the recording I did saturday 29-09-2012 visiting the Great Gallery. 
you can hear the music and also words and noice from people visiting the installation. 
the first half is recorded walking in the Gallery, second half is taped in the dead center of the Gallery.

notes from 
The great Brian Eno, the undisputed contemporary master, music theorist, acclaimed producer, the inventor of ambient music and the brilliant innovator of the language of modern music has made a very special gift to the Great Gallery, the 18th century masterpiece by the architect Filippo Juvarra and the symbol of the splendor of Venaria Reale: an original soundtrack. 

I started writing “12 Seasons. Music for the Great Gallery” in my studio in London. I had seen pictures and plans of the Reggia di Venaria and I was confident I had found the right approach: I worked for a few weeks on a track that I brought to the Reggia for testing in May 2012. 
When I listened to it in the extraordinary context of the Great Gallery, however, I realized that it was not right. What I had composed - in my studio in London, wrapped up in England’s grey climate - was introspective and somewhat dark. There was not doubt in my mind that it was an “interior” track. What is most striking about the Great Gallery - and you realise as much only when you step into it - is that it is soaked in light and space: nothing further from an “interior” feeling. Juvarra had designed it to invite the world to get in, so it seemed appropriate that music should exist inside as well as outside of space, almost like a cloud or an atmosphere that would envelop the construction from the outside. 
Conceptually, this music is similar to other works I did around forty years ago (e.g., Discreet Music, 1975). I am still deeply fascinated by the range of transformations that are possible starting with a limited “stock” of original notes, and this piece is a perfect example in this sense. Nevertheless, there is also a new starting point. Building on the Reggia’s “classical” imprint, I wanted to make sure that the track was made up of several “movements” rather than a single block. Thus only 4 or 5 or 6 of the original 7 sounds I had decided to work with will eventually be used in each section. This means that the emotional quality of each section is slightly different, and as it progresses, the piece evolves and takes on different overtones. 
I love the Great Gallery of La Venaria, it is a sort of secular cathedral, and I hope that my music will encourage more people to spend time in the Gallery than it is normally the case. Brian Eno 

12 Seasons. Music for the Great Gallery of the Palace of Venaria, in its final version, is made up of two 1-hour tracks consisting of 12 sections each.
Only four speakers are in place, two at the entrance and two at the end of the Gallery, all facing the center of the hall. Visitors walking down the Gallery are wrapped into two distincts sound flows: as they approach the center of the hall, echoes of the sounds behind turn into a memory that blend in the soft reverberations of the sounds that lay ahead. 
The two movements that are complete when they meet at the heart of the Gallery. The sound tracks are made of melodic cores that are sketched and whispered, with the warmer sound of real violins in place of samplings. Pauses and silences play with the peculiar reverberation effect. The sounds are remarkably persistent before dissolving into the space, each engaged in a potentially endless chase, floating in the air, altering the perception of the Great Gallery, expanding its volumes and filling it with a different light. 

Music thus becomes an “essential constituent” of the Gallery, like a color, a scent, almost a newly crafted decoration - after the ones designed by the architects Juvarra and Alfieri. Music as a complement to space".

This DVD is sourced from two high definition sources which features the best video and audio sources for this show. The stereo track was losslessly boosted in volume and the 5.1 audio track is untouched except for a large delay added to the start because that broadcast cut in slightly late. This means the first 23 seconds of the 5.1 track is silent, this only involves part of Dave's intro speech, the music has a 5.1 track throughout.

Video and audio quality are both very good with no broadcaster logos on screen although there are messages from the festival occasionally. Video is generally sharp and clear but there are occasions with light macroblocking and in some areas this gets very bad. Most of the time the picture is very enjoyable however. Both audio tracks are as you would expect for a digital broadcast of this kind, clear and quite punchy with very good clarity. As mentioned above the 5.1 source is silent for the first 21 seconds.

As a bonus the final track from Neil Young's set is included as it featured members of Foo Fighters. The video and audio quality is identical to the main feature although it features only a 2.0 track.

And now for the penultimate day of this legendary festival... I'm sure this is one of the most anticipated performances - a rare early performance by Yes 
Yes fans are in for a treat - sonics aside, this is a really interesting listen. First, with the exception of "Then", they only play covers, including the rare "It's Love" from The Rascals which extensively features Chris Squire on vocals and bass (there is a version with Steve Howe on the recent live boxed set) - and, already at that point, has Anderson quoting the introductory theme to Stravinsky's "Rite Of Spring" (as he again did on "Yessongs"). The climax of the gig, I think, is the very extended "I See You" which has one of those long, wild guitar/drums duets between Banks and Bruford that Banks has referred to repeatedly but here's the first real chance of hearing what it really was like. Of course, Yes went on to make great music, arguably better and more accomplished, but there's a wildness and freedom to their early incarnation that was missing in their later, superstar days. 

Lastly, the usual reminder about the sound quality - the tape recorder used was way below modern standards and the sound is nowhere near "professional" quality. This reservation aside, however, this is simply an unbelievable document of a legendary festival, and so our hearfelt thanks to the taper, JJB, for recording this at the time, and for allowing me to seed it here. 

(technical note: JJB tells me he remembers using a Grundig tape recorder with LR14 batteries, using 8cm-diameter reels with a 4,75 cm/s recording speed)

One more thing: Please note that I am, as always, simply the messenger. All thanks go to davmar77, dnick926, michaosanna and, of course, the musicians and technicians. A very humble "thank you!" from salmonella to one and all.

This is an absolutely fabulous soundboard recording of the great Laura Nyro from December 22, 1970 at the Fillmore East. On this night, Jackson Browne opened. I don't have a recording of his portion of the show. I wonder if anyone out there does? If you do, I do hereby officially request that you upload it here at the best tracker east of west Texas and west of the moon! (If, for some reason, you choose not to upload it, please PM me and perhaps we can work something out. I would be very happy to upload it, giving you the thanks you deserve.)

The show was recorded in Barcelona by "Zappa" and Richie Blackmore refused to play after midnight, so he changed the set order and he plays before UFO and the end of the night was for Deff Leppard. There's a bootleg of this show called Bullfighter but I'm not sure that was the same source. I edited and upload this show from a old tapes ( master tapes) I've got some months ago from Zappa who recorded some old concerts in Barcelona.Hope you enjoy the show.

Notes by the taper:

I traveled 500 miles solo to see Neil and the Horse since there are unfortunately no dates yet announced for the upper Midwest. Great, great show with the world premiere of a song tentatively called "Singer Without A Song".

I am very pleased with the sound quality considering my location in the arena. This recording is a testament to Neil's excellent sound crew.

My taping location was perfect since you can only hear an occasional clap in the distance with no talking whatsoever. The only voice you will hear is my reaction to hearing the first few bass notes of Tonight's the Night. I was hoping he would encore with it and sure enough he did.

Let me state from the outset that calling this lineup "Foreigner" is nothing short of outright fraud. When Mick Jones was diagnosed with heart issues and had to bow out of the already-booked 2011 tour, people were willing to cut them some slack. However, there is really no excuse for booking additional dates without a single original member left in the band. The fact is that not one single member performing with Foreigner today had any part in the writing or recording of even one single song in the current set list. That is just plain absurd. At very least, they could play a couple of tunes from the 2009 "Can't Slow Down" record that much of this lineup actually recorded. That might lend them at least a grain of credibility. The most frustrating part is that they don't even bother to inform ticket buyers that Jones will not be performing with the band. Frankly, this lineup has more right to perform under the name "Hurricane," or even "Dokken," than Foreigner. All that aside, are they a good band? Sure. Was the performance good? Of course. That just isn't the point.

This venue is another problem in itself. The Twin River Event Center is easily the worst venue in the entire country to see (and record) a show. It's just a huge rectangular convention room with a 30' ceiling and a small inset stage on one wall. They set up thousands of folding chairs on the floor and have the nerve to make all tickets reserved seating. The biggest problem is that the PA isn't half as loud as it should be to fill this cavernous room. The audience is primarily slot players who got complimentary tickets. As a result, most of them don't know the band, don't pay attention, and chit-chat through the whole show. Those who actually paid for a ticket constantly scream and clap over the insufficient PA. In other words, at this venue recording is pretty much hopeless. Despite that, this show wasn't a complete disaster, but it's just impossible to avoid all the yappers. Otherwise, a great recording.
