Very good show from Nick with assorted Bad Seeds behind him. If it didn't match the power of a full Bad Seeds performance it certainly gave some very good alternative performances and a couple of absolute gems ("From Her to Eternity" and "The Mercy Seat" being particularly tasty IMHO). Great stage show, very nice lighting and as the attached review mentions, Nick was particularly vivid in silhouette. Very enthusiastic crowd, lots of people at the front getting Nicks blessing. No-one does stage stalking like Nick :)

***Neonknight's Notes***
A new source to the community of this early DSOTM concert that I received on a pair of Mitsui discs from an experienced trading friend from the US about 7 years ago.

***Littlepieces' Mastering Notes***
This is a mono recording that was processed as two channel stereo. It has a phase shift that varies some but is generally about 16 samples for the 1st set and 5-16 samples for the 2nd set. So both channels were retained and manually aligned to improve the phasing.

The left channel gain was increased 3.0-3.9db in the Darkside set up to 2:48m into BD. From this point the sets SQ changes almost like a source change. Noise levels goes up and 9s seconds later the levels begin to rise and 35s later the left channel levels goes even higher. Output and hiss levels fluctuate in both channels but the left channel is notably more erratic. So I replaced the left channel with the right channel from 44:21m - 46:18m which is the last 80s of BD and the first 37s of Eclipse. No gain increase from 44:21m - 45:36m then multiple adjustments to both channels from +2.1db to +4.5db until the end of Darkside to help smooth the changes as much as possible without using any hiss reduction. The remaining volume fluctuations you hear in this segment are within the source as if the recording level is being changed. These cannot be addressed without segmenting further and reducing hiss to make the transitions transparent. No negative gain adjustments were made.

During the Darkside set BD has 1:37m more in the middle than rec1 because rec1 is missing music from around where the lyrics turn to how "the lunatic is in my head". There is also 50s of unaffected content not in rec1 prior to the SQ change at 2:48m into BD. It's also of note that this source's levels drop about 5s before Eclipse.

At the beginning of the 2nd set all of the audience and beginning of OoTD is louder than rest of the set, so I used the left channel as its output is lower, and replaced the right channel to avoid an obvious level difference or gain reduction. After this the left channel's gain was increased 1.5db up to 13:50m into Echoes. The 2nd set was phase shifted ~5 samples til 13:50m into Echoes when the shift increased to ~15 samples, or essentially the same as the 1st set and the left channel gain increase is no longer necessary. I realigned the channels again at this point to maintain proper phasing.

The speed was close enough most of the time, so I decided not to subject it to a SpC/resample.

The '3rd gen, 2nd source' CDR transfer of rec2 that seems to be related to this version runs about 2.5% faster, which accounts for this copy of the concert being ~2:40m longer. The levels and degree of phase shift and type of sound also differ so we can be confident that they are from different sources.

Additional Information from "Dream Giver":
After a two month break, the 'New Gold Dream tour' continued in the lowlands with dates across The Netherlands and Belgium. "Dutch Daze" is a recording of one of these early gigs when the set-list was dominated by the current 'New Gold Dream' album with a scattering of early singles thrown in for good measure. Unfortunately despite the crisp, clear and even recording, "Dutch Daze" chose to drop several tracks from the Vereeniging gig, (namely "Colours Fly And Catherine Wheel","New Gold Dream (81,82,83,84)","Love Song" and "Sweat In Bullet") and instead substitute two tracks from a previous year. (These songs were probably from a different source than the "Life In A Day" CD bootleg, which covers the same concert, as this recording is much sharper and clearer.)
This odd choice meant two helpings of "King Is White And In The Crowd" from different concerts which neatly bookend the CD but was not what the band ever performed. Despite these inconsistencies (and an annoying index error on the disc itself),"Dutch Daze" is recommended for its colourful packaging and the quality of its recordings.

The package is a CD size cardboard one, with 4 individual CD sleeves inside, each made to look like a 45 RPM singles picture sleeve. There is a photo of the Trip Club poster, Poor Richard's poster, Balloon Farm poster, and a few photos of the band and a photo of Andy Warhol peeling a large banana on the back cover. The 64-page booklet includes a Sterling Morrison interview with Greg Barrios, a review of VU & Nico album by Timothy Jacobs from Vibrations No. 2, July, 1967, Chicago Happenings by Larry McCombes from Zig Zag, Vol. 5, No. 1, April/May, 1974, New York Art And The Velvet Underground by Jonathan Richman from Vibrations, September 1967, A Quiet Night at the Balloon Farm by Richard Goldstein, Problems in Urban Living by Richard Somma, and another interview with Sterling, Reflections In A Lone Star Beer. This set is supposedly a limited edition of 500 copies. **some guy from the internet**

> A magnificent CD compilation of the most legendary (and deservedly so) of all Velvet Underground bootleg material, Caught Between the Twisted Stars is a four-disc collection drawn from throughout the original band's career (plus the 1993 reunion), lavishly packaged, beautifully annotated by an epic 64 page booklet, packed with interviews and press reports, and just about all the live VU you could possibly need. From 1966, the legendary showing at Chicago's ~Poor Richard's, where John Cale took lead vocals from an unwell Lou Reed for "Heroin" and "Venus in Furs," appears in best ever sound. From 1968, the mystery-draped "Sweet Sister Ray" transforms the band's best-known soundscape into a "Pale Blue Eyes"-esque ballad; from 1969, the truly infamous and utterly devastating "guitar amp" version of "Sister Ray" explodes with such vivacity that even if you know it by heart, it'll still take you by surprise. The performance was taped, apparently, with the recording equipment connected straight to Lou Reed's guitar monitor, rendering band and vocals a ghost in the distance while unimagined chords, riffs, and solos slice the top off your skull. Elsewhere, "A Short Lived Torture of Cacophony," from a New York performance in 1965, turns out to be a gripping rendition of the pre-Velvets Reed composition "Fever in My Pocket," while a pair of performances from Reed, John Cale, and Nico's 1972 reunion at the Paris ~Bataclan, have a sparse, acoustic charm which stands in absolute polarity to everything else on the box. Occasionally across the four discs, the sound quality lets you down a little -- "Chic Mystique," a rare jam from early 1966, is essentially hiss and drum beat with dissonant ambience somewhere in the distance, while the oft-praised "Venus Heroin" medley is scarcely even discernible. So, not everything in the collection bears repeated listens, although it's interesting that the flattest moments actually come from the 1993 reunion -- and are, as such, the most hi-fi things in sight. Whether the original Velvets rehearsed regularly or not, in concert their every movement appeared to be a step into the absolute unknown. Reformed, there was no room for any kind of unexpected maneuver, and so they recite "The Gift" with weary familiarity, or plod through "Hey Mr Rain" like they left their umbrellas at home. Musically, it's exemplary. Spiritually, it's crushing. Such lowlights, however, are the exception. Regardless of quality, the performances from 1966-1970 (and 1972) not only capture some scintillating highs, they represent a band going hell-for-leather toward a level of artistic accomplishment which even they were only partially aware of -- and whose actual significance would not be realized for years to come. A murderous mystery indeed. **Dave Thompson, All Music Guide**

When I first heard this AC/DC w/Axl Rose thing was happening I thought "you have got to be kidding me mates! this is going to be an abomination". AC/DC is my favorite band of all-time and this guy was about to ruin my favorite band's legacy. Well, I couldn't have been more wrong. Mr. Rose Ruled! He truly redeemed himself this year, both with Guns and Roses and as Guest Vocalist with the greatest band that's ever been. Dare I hope for an actual studio album w/Mr. Rose and then a farewell tour? 

More Notes: 
One on-the-fly split after track 21. Everything else split with Audacity. Again, a pretty good capture with my Nokia Lumia Icon but please let me know what you think. Some samples in the comments below. Photos and videos here:

30th Anniversary of Joshua Tree, where has the time gone. I knew I needed to do this show since my original Joshua Tree tour recordings were some of the most well known recordings from a 35 year taping career. How times have changed. For those shows we had 60 pounds of gear and help from security. Now we have 2 pounds of equipment but need to really work to get tickets, beat walk through metal detectors, wands and stupid security rules. I got down there early and was waiting for another taping friend who had my ticket reserved. My friends  ended up running late and getting caught in traffic meanwhile there were rumours of an earlier start due to curfew and train issues. While I was killing time listening to my 11/15/87 recording in the car I ran the battery down. Dumb move and another jump in the stress level. I heard from a fellow taper who got his gear in and I said I would be late so make sure to capture the opener Mumford and Sons since I didn't expect to be in by the start. My friends showed up, I packed up  his gear since better to have one point of failure sneakking gear in. Got to security and passed through almost unscathed. They wouldn't let me bring in my oranges. Since when is a tasty little tangerine a security risk? Next stop was the bathroom to get set up. Both of us went into a  handicapped stall together to get rigged up (it is SF) and we went out to the GA floor. Security then said no plastic water bottle and I had to pour it into a cup. Poured the water bottle into a cup, found my spot and poured the cup back into the bottle. Had about 10-15 minutes and spotted the other taper 30 feet to my left. Mumford and Sons came on and played for about 50 minutes. Between bands it got quite a bit more crowded and then a bit before 9 Larry Mullen Jr starts walking around the stage and makes his way to the B stage which was anout 20 feet in front and to my left. He sits down and starts the drum intro to Sunday Bloody Sunday. As they blast into the song  I notice how good it sounds. The first part of the stage is on the B stage but I am looking straight ahead not seeing much of the band but enjoying every note. From there they blast into one early vintage song after another. The video screens are also entertaining and I am pretty sure I recognized the road they used in the video footage during Where The Streets Have No Name. For me this was the best U2 show in a long long time. There was some political overtones which were expected and enjoyable and Bono was able to convey his view that we all are on this planet together so we should all work to make it a better place. Before I knew it the set was over and we were waiting on an encore. This was generally newer material and they ended right at 11 on a high note. Made my way back to my car and my friend was waiting  with jumper cables. Got the car started and made it home after a great evening. Enjoy this one.

I listened with headphones and I think it sound great. First show, so I was really there to enjoy it so there is some talking in between songs, but the none during.

Review by OSWALD From Hotwacks:
Billed as home studio recordings from 1965-1975, this set is a pretty monumental collection of Townsend's demos. The nature of the material makes it impossible to tell how comprehensive it is, but a quick glance imparts that this collection very nicely supercedes a series of releases, both underground and sanctioned. As any Who fan knows, Townsend's home demos make for fascinating listening -- many of the arrangements, licks, and even vocal phrasing is already present on these rougher takes. Add to that a sort of home-made funkiness (think a more pissed-off, English version of the Band), and you have a set of recordings that stack up very well against their more familiar later, full-band versions. Townsend has leaked out this
sort of stuff on the SCOOP collections for some time, but those have always been piecemeal affairs -- one track from here, another from ten years later, synth instrumentals next to unreleased songs. This collection is wonderfully focused, chronological, and in pretty strong fidelity. The three Who benchmarks, TOMMY, WHO'S NEXT, and QUADROPHENIA, are well represented, as are a host of popular album and singles tracks in sketchbook form. The thrill of having these cuts in one place and in a reasonable order is indescribable. The drawbacks to this set are few -- sound quality is pretty consistant, the material is endlessly engaging. My one complaint is the packaging. A cool mini-poster of rare foreign EP sleeves is killer, but there are no notes to put the cuts into context. That being said, it's pretty obvious where this stuff comes from, an it should be of major interest to Who buffs the world over. Pete's demo of "Empty Glass" might be the most intense thing he ever laid down...

Review by Matt Whipple from Hypertext Who:
This is another beautiful package from HIWATT! A super 5 CD set complete with a 9.5" x 14" double-sided poster. The tracks are all PT demos presented in chronological order of when they were recorded. The back insert states: "ALL TRACKS RECORDED 1965-1975 BY PETE TOWNSHEND
IN HIS HOME STUDIOS: OLD CHURCH STREET, CHELSEA AND TWICKENHAM". Although I doubt that any of the tracks for Who Are You were recorded prior to 1975. The majority of these tracks were taken from Pete's Scoop series, The Lifehouse Chronicles and Pete's website. Disc 1 actually has a 26th song not listed on the disc - Accidents (this was written by Pete for the Thunderclap Newman release - w. Speedy Keene and a very young Jimmy McCollough a lead guitarist). On Disc 2, last 2 seconds of track 3 starts to play Jaguar. Disc 5, Track 18 - should be No Road Romance NOT No Road Running as stated on the back scan. The others are from various bootlegs still not officially released. An initial listen reveals excellent sound quality.
