Manassas - Down The Road studio outtakes (STU/FLAC)

(Studio FLAC)

Excellent quality collection of studio outtakes from Manassas second album remastered by Captain Acid. There are many versions in circulation but this one is the most complete and the best quality by far. According to CA this is the only copy he gave away. 

1. Isn't It About Time 
2. Lies 
3. Pensamiento 
4. Piece Of My Mind 
5. Six More Days And I'll Be Gone 
6. Mama Told You So 
7. The Seventh Mountain 
8. So Many Times 
9. People, They Just Don't Seem To Understand 
10. Down The Road 
11. I Don't Even Have To Try 
12. Rollin' My Stone 
13. City Junkies 
14. Business On The Street 
15. Do You Remember Americans? 
16. Guaguanco De Vero 
17. The Seventh Mountain 
18. Lies 
19. Who Do You Turn To? 
20. Down The Road 
21. People, They Just Don't Seem To Understand 
22. Isn't It About Time 
23. Pensamiento 

TWO tracks have the same names as tracks released on the Manassas compilation "Pieces," those being #2, "Lies" and #15, "Do You Remember Americans?" I've listened to the both version of both tracks, and they are indeed different takes; comparison notes as follows: 

2. "Lies" from the Pink Robert Down The Road studio outtakes is laid back at 115 bpm, loose with harmony chorus throughout second half. 
3. "Lies" from Manassas' 2009 Pieces CD, tighter, at 130bpm, much more polished track, vocal phrasing different from the start. Second half is all guitar solos with no vocal choruses. 

15. "Do You Remember Americans?" from the Pink Robert Down The Road studio outtakes is 110bpm, all harmony singing, rather polished track, country take with CSN style harmonies, steel guitar, acoustic guitar, country bass line, piano and banjo, tight ending 
13 "Do You Remember The Americans" from Manassas' 2009 Pieces CD, much faster at 150bpm, a bluegrass reading without the harmony singing, just Stills singing, banjo picking, acoustic guitar, similar country bass line, mandolin, no steel or piano, false start

Comments: The Lulu Show songs are a bit weak in performance and the rest of the
CD is comprised of Tommy demos and rehearsals. Apart from the Lulu tracks, this
is an interesting CD. Tracks 3-6 appear to be identical to other Tommy Demos
tracks. However, Tracks 7-13 appear to be WHO rehearsals featuring Roger Daltrey
on vocals. Track 7 cuts in immediately before the verse. The track venues listed
above were referenced from The Who Concert File book, (p.71).

This is one of the first gigs with Chris Thompson and one of the best. The bootleg ran very slow and i tried to speed-correct it using other gigs and my ear. Due to me not having perfect pitch i also included the uncorrected version as i downloaded it. Sadly i have no lineage for this, perhaps there's a version with a proper lineage out there. It's a fantastic gig. If there's a problem with my upload, tell me. Anyhow, i hope you'll enjoy this transitional and still very proggy gig. Highlights include the early version of "The Road To Babylon" sandwiched between in the midst of the CBS/GM medley with a long drum solo and one of Chris Thompson's best performances. This is miles better than the more often booted Philadelphia gig a year later.

* Mixed with another show to fill missing part.

Many pops/clicks removed one by one, mixed missing parts with another soundboard shows from 1980,boosted audio levels on some quiet parts and so on. You'll hear the difference.
+Many other improvements I never list."Yellow Rose Of Texas" is originally just an intro to "Cadillac Ranch",that's the reason it fades out to "Fade Away".

"One of only four (circulating) complete soundboard shows from the entire River tour.
This show includes several highlights from early in the tour, especially opening with Born to Run,as well as rare performances of "Jackson Cage" and "No Money Down" as an intro to "Cadillac Ranch".Another "highlight" may be the trio of "Stolen Car," "Wreck on the Highway," and "Point Blank".

Over a 12-year, nine-album career from 1968-1980, Led Zeppelin was the most popular rock group in the world, ultimately selling more than 200 million albums worldwide.  They developed the blues-based power trio-plus-lead singer archetype in many directions including mystical English folk-rock, Middle Eastern-influenced exotica, quirky pop and every manner of heaviness. They also came to symbolize the Dionysian excesses of the rock lifestyle.

Their ubiquity on classic rock radio formats and the aforementioned excesses have led many to dismiss the band as overrated and symptomatic of the decline of rock ‘n’ roll in the '70s and if anything, the band’s musical greatness is still underappreciated, due to the previously mentioned resentments and the fact that the band had no greater cultural impact — they didn’t much stand for anything. Jimmy Page formed the band in 1968 with veteran session bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones, 19-year-old singer Robert Plant and Plant’s friend, drummer John Bonham.

Plant’s vocals reached levels of deranged ecstasy matched perhaps only by Little Richard on lyrics typically either oozing with sexuality or derived from Anglo-Saxon myth and/or the occult. Bonham (whose accidental death in 1980 broke up the band) pounded his drums relentlessly like a nimble elephant dancing through the house. Jones’s bass and strategic keyboards glued the disparate elements together. And Page, who did most of the writing and production, played some of the most fundamental and memorable guitar in rock history — from the heaviest crunch to the most delicate acoustic finger picking.

Radio Hauraki’s “Led Before Bed” a weekly series broadcast each Wednesday night from 10pm has featured DJ Mike Currie presenting live and rare material from Led Zeppelin provided by The Mysterious Benefactor, a local Zeppelin fan who has built up a formidable music collection over many years of collecting.

The Led Before Bed show broadcast on 11/05/2005 featured the only concert ever played in New Zealand by Led Zeppelin at Western Springs Stadium on February 25th 1972. The concert was recorded by an unknown member of the audience and has circulated amongst diehard fans for many years in one form or another. Many fans consider the band to be at their musical peak playing live around this period of the 70’s.

The Mysterious Benefactor took it upon himself to research the concert in depth which lead him to the NZ Herald archives at Auckland City Library to read issues from that week in February ’72. Copies of the original ad’s for the show are included along with the concert review from the Saturday 26th February issue.

The ad’s also showed that Radio Hauraki was the station at the time which promoted the show. The concert promoter was Australian Robert Raymond.  He was tracked down in America and provided an exclusive interview recalling many events and stories from this time which were a feature of the broadcast.  Also featured in another interview was the local record company rep who was given the task of looking after the band during their stay in the country.

Radio Hauraki’s listeners were asked over some weeks to contact the station if they had attended the concert and many of those who did can be heard reminiscing at times during the broadcast of their experiences of the concert on that day.

In the days following the broadcast Radio Hauraki DJ and Promotions Manger Mark Woods commented that in his 5 years with the station he had never received more calls or feed back for any other feature that had been played on the station. Clearly this one particular show had stuck a cord with the stations listeners and Mike Currie continues to receive calls about it to this day.

Radio Hauraki is a New Zealand radio network, specialising in AOR and classic rock. It was the first private commercial radio station of the modern broadcasting era in NZ and operated illegally to break the monopoly held by the government. Private commercial radio stations had operated from the earliest days of broadcasting, but the government began to close them down, the process accelerating after World War II. To break the state monopoly, Radio Hauraki was originally formed as a pirate station in the Hauraki Gulf in a famous and historic story that saw the loss of one life.  Radio Hauraki's head office and main studios are now located on the corner of Cook & Nelson Streets in Auckland City, along with the other seven stations of The Radio Network.

Newspaper Ad scans, a few concert photographs and a text reprint of the April 1972 Rolling Stone magazine review of the concert are also included.

A Special Report: 
Fear & Led Zep in New Zealand 
AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Robert Raymond is an Australian, a qualified lawyer, sun-tanned, pleasant-mannered and a promoter who has taken up residence in Remuera, a very plush suburb of Auckland, New Zealand, and from there he has brought over Tom Paxton, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Mary Hopkin, Mungo Jerry, Elton John, Led Zeppelin and a few others I've probably forgotten -- all this in less than six months, to a country which is veritably Townsend’s Teenage Wasteland. Or was, up until less than six months ago.

Most of these acts would doubtless have made it over here anyway, the difference here being the rapidity in which they have arrived, but where the appearance of Elton John was an eye-brow raiser, the arrival of Zeppelin brought a near-catatonic reaction from the country's rock freaks, who descended on Auckland from as far away as Dunedin (the other end of the country: about 900 miles) for the open air concert February 25th. Three planes brought the equipment across the Tasman, and from what Raymond would say, it appeared that the whole thing would cost him around $40,000. Seats sold at $3.10 and $4.10 and somewhere between 20,000 and 25,000 filled the Western Springs Stadium (a couple of miles from Auckland city and usually used for stock cars and other related entertainment) -- so it seems the genial Raymond did OK. They don't pay lawyers that well over here, that's for sure. 

Zeppelin had come from Australia, and in keeping with a number of rock acts who've played there, they didn't have much of a time there. A harrowing raid on their motel in Perth had obviously left it's mark on a still-shaken Jimmy Page at the small party quickly arranged for them the night they arrived. You sensed they were going to play this one through on alcohol before getting back to Sanity. "Australia was really pretty s-----," said Page as his eyes wandered around the room -- the occasional groupie grooving to Sha Na Na ,the inevitable media people whom Raymond tactfully remembered to invite, and John Bonham filling the intermittent silences with amusing and loud imitations . . . a chick with "Merlene" knitted across her breasts, was arranging "interviews" (EMI's delightful press liaison girl Louise told me Merlene was "a strange person who read poetry in Wellington -- 500 miles away") and it was later dutifully reported that Merlene had scored two out of four. 

Our little group was heavily into the Raoul Duke thing -- those ROLLING STONE issues had just arrived in New Zealand -- as we laid our goodies out on the table (what's more, I'd just flown up from Dunedin to discover that AUCKLAND WERE NOT YET INTO NITROUS OXIDE, and so the gleaming blue 275-gallon cylinder took pride of place in the middle of the table. Something to sustain the stone later in the evening.) 
It was a good three hours before starting time when we set off for Western Springs (we began to peak prematurely as the Yugoslav taxi-driver quickly launched into an excited discussion on communes and people-who-live-on-beaches: "Have you seen them?" he roared at us as he snaked dangerously in and out of the lanes. Roger tipped him ten cents at the end and we ran off). Three hours wasn't in any way early and we got some of the remaining good seats on the hill overlooking the stage, perhaps 75 yards away. 

We were warmed up with the Allman Brothers' live double album. I don't know how many knew that Duane Allman was dead (I don't know how many knew Duane Allman actually) but the razor-sharp lead guitar came through the superb system with each note crystal clear. Then it was dark, 8 o'clock, and we knew it would be any minute . . .

There had been some publicity on how there would be live animals jumping through hoops, but all that had sort of been forgotten what with all the mind-food fighting for a hold in our heads. But suddenly there was a lion on stage: Plant. I mean we all read the rock magazines over here and the record companies sportingly release just about everything with half a reputation, but we didn't realize that Zeppelin were so loud -- specifically Plant doing the jungle intro to "Immigrant Song." And then Page hitting those chords...most of us had seen Townsend a couple of years before (just about the time the Who were breaking in America) and we'd always thought that  was the way to play chords. But Page has moved along with the times -- and weren't we lucky to see him. On the other side of the world. Wow. 

I'll skip the way they put the concert together -- it was exactly the way we expected they'd fill three hours and doubtless exactly the way 
they'd done it many times before. Suffice to say they played excellently, relative to their records and relative to reviews on how they'd played in the past. 
It was really quite a significant evening for New Zealand and for New Zealand rock. On record there are a few bands that still have it over Led Zeppelin for my taste, but working simply on what I have to work on, I can't really see there being much better live rock around -- possibly because Zeppelin came here with a definite mystery thing where say the Stones have been exposed both live and on record live: Zeppelin haven't done anything live and they refuse to be filmed (Two detectives accompanied the NZBC film crew around Western Springs to ensure the cameras would never swing round onto the stage). 
Bob Raymond has a lot more goodies planned, and he's moving into records too (a group called Ticket, who have stunned New Zealand by getting their debut album accepted by Ahmet Etregun for release in America on Atlantic, will probably hit your shores in around six months after Australia and Japan). Winter's coming on now but around say October it gets really nice -really green, you know? But you could always ask Led Zeppelin about that. (RS107)

The worst:
Tape flip in "Still Falls The Rain" and is at 29:24. The recording goes to mono at 29:18 and returns to stereo at 29:44. "Mother Of Pearl" had a couple dropouts removed at 31:19. During "Love Is The Drug" there were 2 breaks close to each other. Removed about 5 seconds to make this seamless. Between 54:41 and 54:43 (during "Ladytron") there is 2 seconds of static from FM interference. Next tape flip is during " In Every Dream Home A Heartache". A little of the solo was removed at 61:49 to make a cleaner splice. That is the bad stuff that I worked on to make this more presentable to you.
