06 - When The Music's Over 
07 - Wild Child 
08 - Money 
09 - Wake Up! 
10 - Light My Fire 
11 - The End 

These two performances are an eye-opener if you've never heard them before. What you get is a wowser recording of an in-shape, ready to kill you Jim Morrison. The man is out for blood and it shows. The only thing wrong here, and it's the ONLY thing is that Jim is off mike for the first "When The Music's Over". The recording is clear enough that you can just about hear him, but alas there is nothing that can be done about that now. The material itself is stellar and the band is in top form. Enjoy this show, it's a mind-ripper.

Pink Floyd - 1970-04-29 - San Francisco, CA (DVDfull pro-shot)

Live at KQED

DVD5 | 59mins | MPEG2 | PAL | 720x480 | 4:3 | 25fps | AAC 48kHz 224kbps | 3.9GB
Language: English | Publisher: Hawklord HWKDVD001
Included: more than 2 hours of bonuses (clips, interviews, etc…)

“Very few Pink Floyd's shows have been recorded, especially dating from the 'golden age' of the Floyd (early 70's), when they invented a new style of rock.
This is one of the more celebrated recordings of The Pink Floyd filmed in KQED studios in San Francisco on the afternoon of April 29, 1970. ”

01 - Atom Heart Mother
02 - Cymbaline
03 - Granchester Meadows
04 - Green Is The Colour
05 - Careful With That Axe, Eugene
06 - Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun

“The cheerful freaks who floated over stange fumes during the concerts of Pink Floyd's tour " Ummagumma " in 1969/70 had the privilege to see and hear the Graal, the electrical version of "Atom heart mother", never recorded under this form, as it was, from July, 1970 and the concert of Hyde Park, mixed with an arrangement of cords and brass orchestra which killed in the egg all its rocky lightnings. Since then, the fevered quest did not stop of filmed clips, bootleg albums, then at the age of the net, fragments of concerts with a more or less good quality in Florida or in Japan, of a show in BBC or a concert in Saint Tropez. And miracle, the without-public concert done for QKED was recorded with high video and audio quality, and reappeared recently.

In a studio without public, on April 29th, 1970, Pink Floyd on stage play a show where in an hour, alternately acoustical or electrical.They are going to build a mosaic of their three albums an hour, " Ummagumma ", "More" and "Atom heart mother".
It opens with " the thing ", 19 minutes of "ATM", its topic, its guitar riff, its cosmic ravings and final. "Cymbaline" and "Grantchester meadows" follow, and electricity again with "Green is the colour" chained with a furious "Careful with that axe Eugene" to finish in a languid way with "Set the controls for the heart of the sun".
The sound is very good, perfectly restored (from the 3/4" original master) and pictures come from a rebroadcast of the show in August, 1981. The film starts and ends with pictures of in-flight fields taken in low flying, with hyper-saturated colours, a bit "forced " but as a result well-deserved psychedelic style.
For those for whom true Pink Floyd is that former "Dark side of the moon", this concert will be the object to be cherished, so much the concerts of this tour were artistic and emotional peaks of the band. Each of four members is on his place, but with all his place, necessary piece of an enchanting jigsaw puzzle.

Comments: 
Almost every version of this show I have seen is taken from a bootleg LP called "Secret Heart Illustrated". This appears to be taken from the same FM broadcast, however this CDR is not a dub of the LP, and it is more complete as a 12 minute plus version of "Sing Child" is on this recording.

Kate Bush - Alone At My Piano (STU/FLAC)



(studio FLAC)

Alone At My Piano (Ukinel Records NY 1988)
modestly remastered & expanded

The 22 demos which Kate Bush recorded all by herself & her piano in November of 1976 can be found, as a whole or in part, on a number of bootleg CDs. The most common ones are "Cathy's Home Demos", "Practice Makes Perfect (Piano Demos No 1)", "If You Could See Me Fly", and "Passing Through Air". The order of the songs varies across those discs, the pauses between songs have been edited out and all of those bootlegs appear to be taken from a vinyl source. The sole exception that I know of is "Alone At My Piano", which presents an (almost completely) uninterrupted recording of all those demos, with inbetween-song pauses & noises intact, taken from a tape source (be it several generations removed from the master cassette).

What ALL those bootleg CDs have in common is that they play dreadfully slow, turning the singer into "a child with a woman in her voice" rather than the true musical prodigy Cathy was at the tender age of 18. That's why I have sped up the recording found on "Alone At My Piano" by about 5.4 %, which more or less restores the original tone & pitch of the cassette recording. What I didn't do is remove the hiss that is clearly present in the copy used for the bootleg (hence the "modest" remastering). We will never be able to get back into that room anyway, alone with Kate at her piano, so I thought it best to leave well alone. This is priceless stuff nonetheless... music in its purest form, methinks.

As for the "expanded" bit: I have added six tracks which can be found on the "Cathy's Home Demos" bootleg. They are two further solo demos from 1980 of "Babooshka" (the first with Kate alone on the piano & some vocal overdubs, the second with Kate at the piano & a rhythm box and vocal + musical overdubs) and five demos with band from 1977, the so-called "Kick Inside" demos. All those clearly derive from a vinyl source; I have removed the worst clicks & pops with the pen tool in SoundForge, but I did not remove the last bit of surface noise as, again, I didn't want to compromise the sound in any way by using a generic restoration tool.

Those wishing to read up on these wonderful piano demos from (November?) 1976 can have a field day on the following web pages:

re: the tracklist. The song titles of the 1976 demos are a moot point, as most of those songs have never been released officially. That's why these songs can be found with different titles on different bootlegs. What you find here are, first, what may well be the true original titles, followed by the various alternatives found for the songs in question on different bootlegs.

Notes by the uploader:
Continuing my never-to-be-quenched thirst for vinyl, here's a great offering from the European anti-CD label Sodium Haze Records. Pressed in perhaps batches of 50-100 pieces (correct me if I'm wrong there), your chances of snagging one are very limited... you'd better not blink or it will go away. Side one features three tunes from the "Rome Goes Pop! program(me): Astronomie Domine, Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun, and Interstellar Overdrive. The first two tracks are sourced from a VPRO-FM radio rebroadcast on 1988-04-29. The third track is an audio rip from the television broadcast on ARD TV (West Germany) from 1968-05-18. The quality is simply stunning. Side two is pre-FM sourced from the program(me) John Peel's Night Ride: Granchester Meadows (Daybreak), Cymbaline (Nightmare), Green Is The Colour (The Beginning/Beset By Creatures Of The Deep), and The Narrow Way. The last track is of mention as it contains vocals. For those of you unfamiliar with the extra titles, these tracks were performed on the road during 1969 as part of a concept piece "The Man and The Journey". The versions presented here are notable for their differences from the normal concert routine. The sequence of songs on this album are simply superb.

This audio comes from my master cassette, recorded from a local german radio NDR2 satellite broadcast ("radiokonzert" program series) in 1998. Sixteen years are passed on it but it's still in good condition and can be pleasantly listened. The gig was part of the Breathe European Tour 1998. The concert was broadcasted in two parts and 'Vienna' which was the last song of the first part was cutted after about 3mins 34s from the beginning, to ending the program. Radio speaker announcements have been completely removed for a better listening rendition except for Vienna song. The broadcast is complete and the band's performance is excellent.
