Well what can you say, 3 sellout nights at Wembley takes me back to 89 (Prayer tour) and 92 (Wish tour 4 nights at Olympia) for these multiple runs at the end of a tour... And they didnt disappoint. 

Over these 3 amazing shows 94 tracks played, think it something like 56 or 57 different tracks played. 

I am more then happy with how all three of my recordings turned out, Iknow there are other recordings out there, as Im writing this I have not had a chence to listen to these in comparison. 

This one for me was full of adrenalin and excitement at it being the first night, the other 2 were full of anticipation in what was to be played and could it beat the preceeding night(s).

Night 2 was probably my favourite trackwise of the 3 as I am a massive Disintergration fan and took me back to the last night of the Prayer tour here back in 1989, I believe that was the first time they clocked 3 hours for a show. Was really hoping The Same Deep Water As You was going to be played to complete the Lp but it wasnt to be. I know some people say Homesick and Untitled as well but those 2 tracks werent on the VINYL LP, but were classed as bonus tracks on CD and cassette, remember those?

After the previous 2 nights, the expectation was for a Wish based setlist and yes we got Tape-Open and End to bookmark the main set but Head On The Door was the dominant LP played. No complaints from me either way. I didnt want to fuck this recording up in anyway so I did dial the levels down a little, and with it being a Saturday night London audience there were the expected, by me at least, the groups of chatters. Some of this can be picked up between some tracks and during some of the quieter parts. I dont think it detracts from the recording too much, although I could have throttled the couple woahing between encore 3 tracks.

COMMENTS: 
This is the second night of the Back To Bass Tour in Italy, this show was similar to the first one, instead of "Wrapped Around Your Finger", Sting perfomed "Heavy Cloud",no more Changes.The quality of this show is probably better than the first because I'm seated at the therd row, but sounds more "bass".People was more powerfull than in Rome, this is a bigger venue and not sophisticated like Rome. 

During the soundcheck he played always the same traks they played, some take of Mad About You,Shock The Monkey,Shape Of My Heart,When We Dance (this will practice for featuring changes),Something The Boy Said (different takes). 

The support act for this show was also Joe Sumner (with Jo Lawry and Rhani Krija).joe play some acustic songs of Fiction Plane.He atended a few fans before to go at the stage on the doors who separed the backstage and arena.

The venue is the famous Roman amphiteatre (1st Century BC) in Verona, also known for the Verona Arena Festival (summer opera festival). 
I had a seat in the first level gallery at about 50 m from the central stage. Quiet people around me, but chatting is occasionally audible in the quiter parts of the recording. 
The acoustic of the Arena is amazing and the sound is excellent. 
Unfortunately the second half of the recording (tracks 18 to 31) is affected by hiss on the left channel due to my computer bag falling down a step under my seat when I tried to protect it from rain. 
I have put the recorder in the front pocket and the cable was strechted. Where the recording is seriously ruined I have used the right channel only (stereo-to-mono). 

What about the show? 
It was my first Kraftwerk show (and the first 3D concert in my life). 
A classic "English-language" performance with some surprises: Pocket Calculator in Italian (Minicalcolatore) and The Model in German (Das Modell) 
Also Homecomputer, The Man-Machine, Neon Lights, Radioactivity and Techno Pop contain choruses and/or verses in German 
I can imagine Kraftwerk would thank the large number of German attendees (the Garda Lake near Verona is a common holiday site for German-speaking people) and Verona is not far from Austria and South Germany 
A light rain fell between Spacelab and Autobahn (during Metropolis you can hear occasional raindrops on the mics) 

Technical notes: 
- The total running time of the recording was 2:14:02; I have cut the first 10:24 mins of pre-intro electronics and last useless 27 secs reducing the master to 2:03:11. 
- I have amplified (+3.0 dB on the left channel, +3.5 dB on the right channel) and slightly compressed (-30 dB/2.0:1) the whole recording and faded-out the last 10 secs. 
- About 12 mins of the recording has been reduced to mono (right channel has been used in place of the left one) in order to remove serious hiss on the left channel: 
* Autobahn (from 0:32 to 1:40) 
* encore break 1 (from 1:18 to the end) and The Robots (from beginning to 1:49) 
* encore break 2 (completely), Planet Of Visions (completely) and Boing Boom Tschak (from beginning to 1:23) 
- If you burn to audio CD, you will need 2 CDs (CD1: 01-12; CD2: 13-31) 

"This recording is a poor gift to Ian Macdonald (ianmacd) for his excellent and inspiring residency of 8 nights at the Amsterdam Paradiso"

Notes from original source of this recording:
Will and I packed up the gear at the What Stage after Red Hot Chili Peppers and hauled ass to That Tent to catch this show. We only missed a couple songs. We actually heard "I'm Eighteen" walking up. We moved into the crowd outside the tent and I used my old guy skills to get us inside and up to the soundboard rail where Randy had his rig set up. Only show I saw that I didn't tape. But we had a blast.
Randy doesn't upload so he sent me this show via DropBox and I did all the busy work to share it. The recording is fantastic. Church Audio comes through again. Nice work, Randy.

Scored a 2nd row seat right in front of His Bob-ness, and I was basically sitting under the stack so I decided to take George and Tony a little lower in the mix and boosted Bob, Charlie, and Donnie on the high end (using Sound Forge)...If a better-sounding capture doesn't surface and someone is interested in doing a more in-depth sound adjustment, I'll be glad to send the wav file along.. 

Completely awe-inspiring evening in the prescence of greatness.. Bob continues to amaze as he squeezes every ounce of showmanship and panache out of his songs (and Frank's too) and most arrangements felt really fresh to me. Too many highlights to list but a real standout for me was the reworked High Water. Everything was well played and the crowd was very well behaved and appreciative all evening. On a side note, I kinda missed Stu's shakers during  ERK as he swtiched to electric guitar.

JEMS has seen and recorded Ferry and Roxy Music going back to 1976, the most recent being a fine 2011 set at the Beacon in NYC that we posted shortly after the show. This night was one of those weird ones where the recorded performance is better than the in-person one. Something felt a little rushed as I watched it unfold, and as much as I appreciated the crack young band (especially drummer Cherisse Osei) and how willing Bryan was to give them the spotlight (he quite literally sat out of it, stage left, on keyboards for at least half the show), the show only resonated deeply in a few moments, notably "Same Old Blues," "If There Is Something," "Virginia Plain" and a song I've been waiting since 1983 to hear again in concert, "Take a Chance With Me." 

But the recorded document is quite forgiving. While "More Than This" is inexplicably less than a minute snippet, many of the performances are hard to argue with upon further review. Bryan's vocals aren't as upfront as one might like, but fifth row seats delivered a nice, up-close recording. Samples provided. 

There are, however, a few caveats. That bane of all tapers, Wolf Whistle Guy, was seated directly behind me, and he lets his piercing note loose multiple times across the set. I tamed some of them with isotope RX, but artifacts remain. He was also the kind of jackhole who feels the need to narrate the performance, at full volume, for those seated next to him. There wasn't much I could do about that. There are also two brief instances where this otherwise wide stereo recording is crushed to mono, to mask a conversation directly into the mic. 

While all that is annoying as fuck, it still doesn't detract from a fine snapshot of Bryan Ferry circa 2014. JEMS was also on hand for Bryan's Seattle date a week earlier, but a speeding ticket caused us to miss the first several songs of the show. I've pulled the two variants, "Prairie Rose" and "Running Wild," and added them as bonus tracks.

A more detailed from the taper:
Even as recent as the night before Desert Trip was Desert Mirage, the more money I sank in, the more remote the reality of this experience became. 

I had zero interest in this show whatsoever when originally announced. Too expensive, too far, too much of a hassle, I have seen all these bands so many times and I always do Culture Collide this time of year. The first domino to fall was when it looked like Culture Collide wasn't happening. 

Then a week prior, prices on the secondary market were in total freefall. Started putting out feelers, had an offer on a room across the street at regular pre event pricing. Suddenly wanted to do this so hard. Got the ticket ($182 for Grandstand S4) and locked in the room. Should be able to find someone to drive me out there and share the cost of the room, right? 

Turns out none of my friends - many of whom were talking nonstop about this for months - were the least bit interested, even with "cheap" tickets and place to stay. 

Even the night before I still had no way out there. Texted every professional driver I know saying name a price. First response back was over 12 hours later. Went to go see Deap Valley followed by ZZ Top on Thursday, still working it the whole time but my phone stopped working up in the hills of Griffith Park so I had no choice but to enjoy the show. 

Get home from ZZ Top and in one last ditch effort look at Greyhound, who never seems to go anywhere I need to be. Turns out they have buses to Indio every 2 hours around the clock. And I am on my way! Still never found anyone to share the room which is kind of a sore spot as it put me a few hundred over budget, otherwise I would be scheming for this weekend as I had a great time.
