The bulk of the songs that would become The Velvet Underground & Nico were recorded in mid-April, 1966, during a four-day stint at Scepter Studios, a decrepit recording studio in New York City. This recording session was financed by Warhol and Columbia Records' sales executive Norman Dolph, who also acted as an engineer with John Licata. Though exact total cost of the project is unknown, estimates vary from $1500 to $3000

Actual recording at Scepter was done rather quickly in about two business days (roughly 8-10 hours) while the third was spent listening to the material and the fourth was spent mixing. Soon after, Dolph sent an acetate disc of the recordings to Columbia in an attempt to interest them in distributing the album, but they declined, as did Atlantic Records and Elektra Records. Eventually, the MGM Records-owned Verve Records accepted the recordings with the help of Verve staff producer Tom Wilson, who had recently moved from a job at Columbia.

Scepter Studios acetate version
Norman Dolph's original acetate pressing of the Scepter Studios material contains several recordings that would make it onto the final album, though many are different mixes of those recordings and three are different takes entirely.

The acetate was pressed on April 25, 1966, shortly after the recording sessions. It would resurface decades later when it was bought by collector Warren Hill of Montreal, Canada in September 2002 at a flea market in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City for $0.75. Hill put the album up for auction on eBay in November. On December 8, 2006, a winning bid for $155,401 was placed, but not honored. The album was again placed for auction on eBay and was successfully sold on December 16, 2006 for $25,200.

It is important to note that ten songs were recorded during the Scepter sessions and only nine appear on the acetate cut. Dolph recalls "There She Goes Again" being the missing song (and, indeed, the version of "There She Goes Again" that appears on the final LP is attributed to the Scepter Studios session).
Though rumors have circulated concerning an eventual official release of this version of the album, this has yet to be confirmed or announced by any major record label.
However, a ripped version of the acetate began circulating the internet in January 2007. Bootleg versions of the acetate tracks have also become available on vinyl and CD

A (former) buddy of mine recorded this show while a member of the VH crew. 

WOODA remastered it...along with a handful of other early gigs...not the least of which is the now-infamous 
NIGHTMARE BEFORE HALLOWEEN. With the much-deserved success of Greg Renoff's literary and historic masterpiece 

VAN HALEN RISING...I thought it would be a good time to bring some of these early shows to surface. 

Among the highlights of this show... 

I should point out that the boys are introduced by legendary KROQ DJ Rodney Bingenheimer 


SHOW YOUR LOVE is, of course, I'M THE ONE. 

I LIVE WITH FOOLS, later FOOLS, features the origin of Dave's "THE STORY OF JOE"...which became a regular part of the 1979 tour.

Throw in the western swing arrangement of No Surrender and Growin' Up in the encores, and it gets even better.

it is clearly one of the top recordings of the tour with the hiss taken out. I spent a long time aiming for the most precise application of the noise reduction that I could, there is some slight artifacting you can hear on headphones when things are quiet but other than that it shouldn't be noticable. No other treatments were made. There are noticable differences in arrangement in many songs compared to the European leg. Furtermore Sylvian seems to be in a rather improvisatory mood as he takes more liberties than usual with rhythm and melody on vocals.

11. 19th June 1980 CHOM-FM Interview with Tony Banks 12:00

June 19th, 1980! I remember that day as clearly as if it was yesterday! Genesis, my favourite band, were to play in Montreal that night for the first time in almost two years. Sitting alone in the living room of my parents' house, I was listening to the radio, CHOM-FM to be more precise, hoping to catch some news about the forthcoming performance. Suddenly, the answer to my prayer! The radio announcer, who’s name I have forgotten with time, gladly reports that Tony Banks of Genesis will be coming in later for a pre-show interview. My heart starts to beat faster as I scramble through my huge stack of cassette tapes, trying to find one with enough free space to record the event. With my finger standing by the ‘record’ button, my eyes staring at the table where my very own ticket for the second night’s show lies, I anxiously await Tony’s arrival on the air. But the man is late, caught in heavy traffic somewhere. “Patience, my friend !”, I start telling myself. “The man will be there soon enough!”

As I sit and wait, I can’t help but think of how big a week-end this is going to be in Montreal. The summer is just starting, the province of Quebec’s National Holiday is just around the corner (June 24th), school’s out for everybody and Genesis are in town for two nights! What a way to start the summer!

Tomorrow, June 20th, I will travel to Montreal to see the second night’s performance at the Forum. Meanwhile, at Olympic Stadium, boxers Roberto Duran and Sugar Ray Leonard will come head to head in one of the most talked about fights in the history of the sport. Very big week-end start indeed!

“Tony Banks has arrived!”, a voice says, pulling me from my inner thoughts. I push the button to start the recording and closely listen to Tony’s interview. When it is all over, I turn off the radio and put my “Duke” LP on the old turn table. Leaning back in my chair with my hands behind my head, I begin to daydream again about the Genesis concerts, about how much I regret not having tickets for tonight’s show as well. “Well!”, I start to think, “I may never get to hear tonight’s performance, but what I will see and hear tomorrow night, no-one will ever be able to take away!” I didn’t know it at the time, but on that blessed day in Montreal, June 20th 1980, I would buy a copy of a fantastic new book about Genesis, written by a guy named Armando Gallo. Minutes later, while waiting for the Forum doors to open, I came face to face with ... Armando Gallo! What I also didn’t know at the time was that, after some 24 years, I would finally get to hear the June 19th performance, which I had missed, on this great album you are now holding. Hidden for years, this amazing soundboard recording has now surfaced. We at PRRP are mighty proud to bring it to you as a way to celebrate our 1st Anniversary!

Notes from the Re-Master
This Genesis show was provided as a .SHN format soundboard recording. The quality is quite good with music signal up to 13,000 Hz but hiss and other sources of noise were found to be a major problem. Hiss was reduced using a number of different techniques as the characteristic of this noise changed between the music and dialogue sections of the show. Miss-tracking errors were found and corrected during the re-tracking process. Numerous clicks, pops and small dropouts were also found and repaired. Detail and “atmospherics” were enhanced as much as possible. Two patches were needed to fill gaps within the show. Another soundboard recording from this same 1980 tour was used for this purpose to match the feel and style as closely as possible. The other major problem with the show was the speed and pitch of the recording. The original version was clearly off both pitch and speed. Fixed time segments within the show were calculated and compared with other similar shows and the studio versions of the songs. Different speed and pitch versions were produced and reviewed by the PRRP staff to confirm the best sounding, final version.

The amount of music on each final remaster disc was re-balanced once the decision to use the interview was made. The interview segment came from a cassette tape used to record the radio broadcast. This was generally a good recording but suffered from significant volume fluctuations that needed repair. Commercials and songs presented between the interview segments were removed as well as hiss and a transmission buzz that interfered with the dialogue. Finally, the volume of the interview was matched to the show for a smooth transition.

Audio source and quality: Audience, excellent quality. I've improved the audio even further from the original, although that sounded great already. Minor audio fluctuations here and there but no problems for the most part.

Special features: Due to Rob's accident, Hell Bent for Leather is played instrumentally for so far the only time in history.

This show is historical in two ways; first, it was the last show the band played for almost seven years, and the last Judas Priest show with Rob Halford until the 2004 Reunion TOUR. Secondly, it was at this show where Rob had his famous motorcycle accident which knocked him out for the duration of opening number Hell Bent for Leather, making it so far the only time in history that this song was played as an instrumental.

Home Away From Home
The band Kansas started as a small musical project in the heartland of America. As they grew in popularity they formed a bond with the people of the East coast state of Pennsylvania. During the early years, Kansas played the great north east state as a warm up band for headliners such as The Kinks, Mott the Hoople and Queen. By 1975, Kansas because a headliner themselves and played an impressive concert at the Stanley Theater in downtown Pittsburgh in 
December of that year. In October of 1976, they were back to play for their Pittsburgh fans again.
This time, it was at the Syria Mosque; site of a very impressive Genesis concert just six months before. They brought with them a band called Ambrosia from California to warm up the crowd.
Both bands were making their name in the developing genre of Progressive Rock but Kansas, with their unique driving melodies and use of violin was the band everyone was coming to see.
Kansas had just released another impressive album called Leftoverture, the fourth album in just two years. With this productive output and their tireless devotion to touring, Kansas was developing a loyal fan base. The previous album Masque sold 250,000 copies but this new album Leftoverture would push them over the top. Songs like Carry On Wayward Son would help to boost the new album to number 5 on the charts. The Pittsburgh crowd at the Syria Mosque was one of the first to hear this new material. The Leftoverture tour had just started the month before and the band were already masters at performing the new material.
The show presented on these discs consists of three parts. First is the Kansas 
concert itself. The band provides a nice mixture of both old and new material for the enjoyment of the crowd. The second piece is an interview of the band members that occurred at the end of the concert. During this interview they discuss the tuxedo worn during the performance by Rick Williams, the masks worn by many of the band members during the show and many other things. The final segment is the Ambrosia performance. As the warm up band, they did play before Kansas but for the purposes of this package putting them at the end of the discs seemed appropriate.
The exact date of this performance is still in question. During the interview a 
reference is made to Halloween. As the show likely finished after midnight this would give the date as October 30th. Other sources argue that the masks worn on stage were, in part, motivated by the fact that the concert was occurring on October 31st. Either way, this show is an excellent record of the bands power and proficiency as one of the leading Progressive Rock bands of the 

Notes from the Re-Master
This great Kansas show was remastered from a CD copy of the original Pre-FM radio station tapes. The sound quality is excellent with harmonics and music signal up to 18,000 Hz. The clarity and crispness of the sound are also superb, however a number of changes needed to be made to improve the show. First, the noise level was moderate in volume and interfered with the appreciation of the subtle and quieter sections; therefore it was reduced. The tracking was 
incomplete and off in some sections so tracking was re-aligned. The tonality also needed adjustment. Mostly, the bass was deficient and needed boosting. In a few sections the frequencies in the 5-8kHz (treble) range were cut to remove a piercing characteristic to the symbol crashes and other high pitched events.
Applause sections were often inconsistent or cut. Some were too loud and others too short. We attempted to obtain some uniformity in the applause sections between songs to enhance the listening experience.
The interview track was obtained from a separate tape source. At its baseline this recording had quite a bit of shrill loud noise that was reduced as much as possible. It is most noticeable between spoken words but, using multiple techniques, now has been minimized.
The Ambrosia tracks were obtained from a third source and were not part of the master radio tapes. The quality is good but not at the outstanding level of the Kansas segments.
Noise was in the high range for this segment so a great deal of time was spent reducing the offending component. Many pops also occurred during this segment that required manual removal even after whole-segment routines were run to remove these noises. Many segments of the Ambrosia tracks were also at low volume and needed adjustment to be comparable to the remainder of the show. This was easily done.

(Flagge is a mix, relying on the second source only when the first is cut. It's sound has been amplified considerably, making the music and background noise much louder. It would have easily fit on 2 cds.)
ARMS is the only title to have all of the tracks properly sequenced. It is missing 2 seconds at the cut in the beginning of Song Remains the Same. There is a brief speed problem near the end of Rain Song. It is missing almost 2 minutes of tape after The Ocean. The Ocean and Communication Breakdown run too fast, near 6%. All other tracks run at the proper speed. Cobra is missing a total of about 70 seconds between songs overall but there are no extra cuts because of it. The tape runs at the proper speed. Rock Calendar is highly edited. No Quarter has been completely butchered to remove audience disturbances. They then had to rearrange the song to contend with the edits. Overall, the song is missing 2.5 minutes. The tape problem in the beginning of Song Remains the Same has also been removed which eliminates almost 5 seconds of tape. Whole Lotta Love is missing the first 92 seconds. The Ocean is missing 5 seconds too many. This title runs very fast too. Badgeholders is a two source mix, with source one as it's foundation. It misses a little bit of source one at two of the cuts. ARMS and Cobra sound similar and are a little bit better sounding than Rock Calendar. Badgeholders has been amplified over the others.
