Black Sabbath - 1980-11-27 - Sydney, AU (SBD/FLAC)

(Soundboard FLAC)

This is a best-sources mix compiled from the following sources:

Source 1: 1st generation FM version*
Source 2: Bringer of evil (Power Gate-100)**
Source 3: 4th generation SB version***

Three different sources are available from this wonderful show and all of them have their advantages and disadvantages.

The 1st generation FM version has the best sound, best frequency range and the least deterioration. However it stops somewhere during the first few minutes of "Die young" and also omits much of the drum solo. An artificial audience track was added to it in post-production, probably by the radio station.

"Bringer of evil" is more complete and sounds quite good, but not as good as the FM version. However, this version has a strange edit, which was probably made to fit the show onto one disc. It misses some of the intro "Supertzar", has the "Die young intro", but leaves out the whole guitar solo and the count in to what I called "Die young (reprise)", apparently to make listeners believe that "Die young" was played like that on the evening. After "Die young" some of Dio's words are missing as well as a few seconds at the beginning of "Paranoid", again to hide the fact that the song is incomplete.

The 4th generation SB version is the most complete version, but has the weakest sound of the three available sources. While it is more complete than the other two sources it lacks the beginning of "Heaven and hell" available on the FM recording.

My goal was to compile the show as completely as possible, not only the music but also the banter between songs, and to make it sound as good as possible. As it were, this was not a very straightforward process, but meant making a lot of compromises. I used the FM version for the most part, adding from the other sources. I didn't want transitions between the different sources to be so very obvious, so I tried switching sources in places where the transition wouldn't stand out so much. I couldn't remove the artificial audience track, so I sometimes used it to hide transitions.

Pitch and volume had to be corrected to integrate the different sources. The stereo image was generally broadened and EQ was changed with the general aim to make transitions between the different sources less obvious and to make the instruments sound more natural, which of course is a matter of taste. The recording was also retracked. Different solutions are obviously possible, so feel free to offer what you think is a better version of this show. This is by no means attempting to be the definitive version. To my knowledge this recording has not been released officially.

The Rolling Stones' 1989-90 "Steel Wheels" tour represented somewhat of a "comeback" for the band, given that they hadn't performed since 1982 and released only one lackluster album in the interim. The tour kicked off in late August and picked up steam with three sold-out (in fact, considerably oversold) shows at Alpine Valley outside Milwaukee. This recording captures the middle show (incidentally, a special one for me because it was my first Stones show).

This recording captures *almost* the complete performance -- "Rock and a Hard Place," "One Hit (To The Body") and "2000 Light Years From Home" are missing, and "Jumping Jack Flash" is cut about halfway through. Most of the show (slightly more than two hours of a 135-minute set) are here, and the sound is overall pretty good. It sounds to me as though it may have been sourced from a video (VHS) soundtrack, though a pro shot has never circulated. The mix is a cut above a typical raw soundboard mix -- sounds like some processing has been done, and the overall sound is pretty good (if lacking in punch and dynamics).

This particular torrent was shared by "alienhelli" way back in April 2005, and strangely enough I don't believe it has been back since. Hopefully this will fill a gap for some collectors.

As an aside, the info file indicates that Guns and Roses were a support act -- I don't believe they appeared on this part of the tour (I think they only appeared on the West Coast dates). If they did, I feel silly that I am finding out 25 years later that I arrived late and missed them. (I do remember seeing Living Colour, however.)

This excellent ALD recording was originally posted to Dime by "TheCommish" back in September 2008, and was provided to him by Jim Feisler (undiscokidd). For those unfamiliar with ALD (Assistive Listening Device) recordings, they can be hit-or-miss; they are essentially a low-power FM broadcast made available for hearing-impaired audience members in the arena, and the signal often does not extend beyond the room. They often under-represent the low-end and are staticky due to the low transmitting power. However, the system used by Ruth Eckerd Hall (at least, during the early 2000's) was better than most, and the fidelity was quite good -- and as evidenced by the fact that this was recorded in the parking lot, the signal was relatively strong. The recording is quite listenable and has pretty good dynamics; it has all of the hallmarks of a raw, unprocessed soundboard (after all, it was only intended to help hearing-impaired audience members hear the concert better) but overall quite enjoyable.

Comments: This torrent was shared by Dime user "Falo" in September 2010 on Hunger City. For whatever reason, it appears the torrent never ran on Dime, so for those who aren't/weren't on HC this may be new. In my opinion, this is well worth the download even if you have the soundboard and audience recordings separately.

The tour kicked off in late August and picked up steam with three sold-out (in fact, considerably oversold) shows at Alpine Valley outside Milwaukee. This recording captures the middle show (incidentally, a special one for me because it was my first Stones show).

This recording is a matrix of the incomplete soundboard with an excellent audience tape, representing the entirety of the show. In a way, this file set represents the best of both worlds -- the audience recording (originally shared by Dime member "analog4011") is outstanding as a stand-alone source, but the matrix borrows enough of the soundboard source to lend more immediacy and presence to the vocals and guitar track. I haven't done an A/B comparison against the raw audience recording, but the vocals sound better than I remember them on the audience master. The three missing songs from the soundboard are presented with only the audience source, as is the portion of "JJF" that's cut on the soundboard.

Iggy Pop burst out of Detroit in the late '60's as the frontman for The Stooges. The Stooges were raw, immediate and vulgar. Iggy Pop became notorious for self-mutilating himself on stage and whilst smeared in blood, diving into the audience. Though largely ignored at the time by mainstream audiences, Iggy and The Stooges helped define the sound and attitude that would later be known as punk rock.

Following the break-up of The Stooges, Iggy Pop embarked on a solo career dedicated to keeping the dangerous spirit of rock 'n' roll alive. His music and live act has persistently and subliminally infiltrated the mainstream musical core, and has been a powerful inspiration for countless bands. Iggy Pop is now, genuinely being discovered yet again by a whole new generation.

Candidly reflecting on his life Iggy Pop expresses his amazement that he is still alive to tell the story of his remarkable career; his relationship with Nico, his life-long friendship and musical collaboration with David Bowie, the drugs and partying, his resurgence as the original godfather of punk, his belief in his music and of course his remarkable live performance.

Welcome back to the fourth in a series of releases from the ER Archives, the collection of an active '70s taper and trader who stepped away from collecting, leaving his tapes pretty much dormant until now. We're still culling through the archive, but it is clear that it contains previously uncirculated shows as well as upgrades to circulating tapes, both audience and soundboard. ER used high-end tape decks and good tape, so his copies of even well-known shows may well be improvements.

Installment four is, for my money, a material upgrade of an under-appreciated show: the Allen Theatre, April 7, 1976. It is night No. 9 on the Chicken Scratch tour and the first soundboard recording of a post-75 performance (CORRECTION, THERE IS A PARTIAL SOUNDBOARD RECORDING OF APRIL 4). It was this show and recording of "Frankie" that I first fell in love with. I played this tape in heavy rotation when I first obtained a copy in the mid-80s.

It has been bootlegged a few times and torrented too, though it never seems to make any list of favorites which I find surprising. Why? Well, beyond being the best '76 recording of the sublime "Frankie," it captures another uber-rarity of the period, the resurrected "Blinded By the Light," which is utterly delightful. Bruce says they haven't done it in three years but will "for Kid Leo," the influential Cleveland DJ who was an early supporter of the band.

And there's more to like in this set list: the always passionate "It's My Life," "Incident on 57th Street" (played for the first time since September 1975; it cuts but what's there is great), a ripping "Backstreets" and a spirited duo of "Growin' Up" into a sizzling "Saint in the City."

So the set list can't be at issue, and the performance is strong, so perhaps it has always been the recording. This board tape has never been considered A-list, but I think the ER version (surely the lowest generation source to circulate) is excellent and as strong if not stronger than any other '76 board.

Close listening reveals bits of rarely heard off-mic chatter, unusual clarity in areas like the sound of Max's foot-pedal playing on the high-hat and one of the best Garry Tallent mixes on any '70s board. We did spend some time in the mastering lab pulling out clicks and taming what had always been overly bright sound. You can judge for yourself if it merits reconsideration. Samples provided.

There are a few cuts: "Incident" fades out after 6'15", the last few minutes of "Rosalita" were not captured and "Quarter to Three" is joined slightly in progress. But what is there is strong and some of it quite unusual, which is what has always made the Allen Theatre special to me, and I hope now to you as well.

Thanks to the ER Archive for opening up the vault doors and sharing this recording with the fans. Feel free to let him know how you feel in the comments.

The ER Archive will return.

Tapers Notes:
After a 55 City road trip, Bonni Raitt returns home, and performs at the sold out The Greek Theater, one of Los Angeles' preminent venues.  She was having a blast, calling out her agents, producers, friends and family in the first 15 rows, some of which came up and played with her. She was so moved, you can hear her voice break up and 
tear hit her eye in "I Can't Make You Love Me" All banter and stage talk was removed and tracks zero'ed out and faded in. Some FM drift downgrades this to an "A."
