Comments :  
I just watched the complete DVD, and I hate to say this, but this is not the complete San Francisco show.

The first two songs, C'Mon Everybody and Pride, and Sun City at the end are from San Francisco, but the rest of the tape is from a different show (maybe Chicago?).

The next two songs after Pride should have been New year's day and Sunday Bloody Sunday, but they're missing here. Instead, the next U2 number (after Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" inexplicably appears in the middle of U2's set) is Maggie's Farm.

Both Bono and Larry are wearing different shirts than what they were wearing during the first two songs. I sat in the tenth row for this gig and definitely don't remember seeing Bono and Larry doing costume changes halfway through their set.

Also, during Maggie's Farm, Bono stands on a monitor wearing a blindfold... he didn't do that in SF, as far as I recall.

There is also a reel-to-reel tape recorder visible behind Edge in the non-SF clips, while it is not visible in the three SF songs.

However, Sun City is from the SF show. One can tell by Bono saying "come on SF" at the beginning of the song, and by the fact that he is wearing the same leather Daniel Boone shirt he wears in the first two songs of the DVD.

In addition, the clips of Sting doing Roxanne and Message In A Bottle show him playing with Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland. I definitely would have remembered a Police reunion if it happened in SF, but it didn't. Sting played a slow version of Message In A Bottle in SF, if I remember correctly, not the fast version shown here.

Finally, the clip of I Shall Be Released with everyone onstage at the end showed Bob Geldof, Joni Mitchell and Don Henley (?) among the many performers. Again, I don't remember seeing them at the SF show, and I think I would've noticed if they were there.

Besides, I don't remember them doing I Shall Be Released at the end anyway, it was Sun City that ended the show.

Great stuff! An insight to the early stages of the songs that later ended up on Black & Blue, Tattoo You and Undercover....and some songs they never "finished". I like the mood of this sounds like a filthy and dirty studio in Munich - it's almost like if the hiss/unclearity suits the music (or maybe I just got used to it, through the years) DAC didn't do any heavy no-noise/degrading on this material....there's plenty of hiss and punch - the way I like it Haven't had the time to make a closer comparision with my other bootlegs (CDs and vinyls) - as I just recieved this one. Haven't compared it with the tape/torrent of this material, that was shared last year, either But....the quality is pretty much the same as always (mostly Very Good Stereo) (only compared "Crazy Mama" with the version on "Outtakes 1974-75", and the DAC sounds better)

The Band - 1991-1992 - Jericho Outtakes (STU/FLAC)

(Studio FLAC)

Note: these tracks were received as a double cdr set in a trade, with tracks from three different sources. The original Wav files were not named (just Track 1, track 2, etc). I changed the track names after extracting, before compressing. The log files included here reflects the discs as i received them. 

I cannot detail the lineage, but I did check to ensure these are not from a lossy or cress-encoded source. The lineage I can offer is: 

Studio demos > cassette (unknown generation) > digital conversion > CDR > WAV files with extracted & compressed to FLAC level 8 (verified) with xACT 1.71. Log file & fingerprints included in torrent. 

I have removed "Country Boy" from this torrent. Although the overdubs are all different on the version released on "Jericho", the base track is the same, which violates two separate Dime polices of what's not allowed: 
- The audio of any performance used as the sound on officially released video material - even if the recording is from another source than that of the sound in the officially available material; 
- Remixes, remasters, alternate mixes, and alternate edits of any official material; 
I also dropped the final two songs which were from an official, if somewhat obscure, release:

Notes, mostly stolen from 
which you should read in it's entirety if you're interested in this sort of thing: 

These are all different versions to the released album. These are said to be out-takes, but none of them are final mixes. There seems little overdubbing and backing voices are less pronounced. There's an almost live feel - rehearsals rather than out-takes. The bass is over-present throughout, a common problem with live recordings. As bass isn't directional it leaks onto every mic and over-amplifies itself. There rarely seem to be two drummers, and Garth plays a lot of accordion throughout the first half. These tracks can't have been sequenced as an album, as the four numbers with horns are in a row together. They might well be the earlier versions of the album with John Simon. 

Caves of Jericho 
Levon lead vocal. 

Shine A Light 
Rick takes the first verse, then hands over to someone else for the next. This could be Randy Ciarlante or John Simon (who plays piano and does backing vocal on the final version) or someone unknown. Great slide guitar which was dropped from the final version. the unknown voice and slide guitar sound a lot like Colin Linden. 

Move to Japan 
This has a very live feel. Garth's accordion is prominent. 

Country Boy 
Richard Manuel. This is the older tape that they preserved for the final album. 

Night On The Town (Bruce Hornsby) 
Title track of a Bruce Hornsby album. Lead vocal is Randy - Rick and Levon can be heard in the background. It starts with 'shave and a haircut- two bits' rhythm. Then this version takes too many directions and is ultimately too messy to get anywhere, There's a great bit of wild Garth organ. 

The Same Thing 
Levon counts this in and sings. A looser feel than the final cut. 

'tikki tikki' birds sound effect starts before Same Thing finishes and runs right into this - suggesting some post production effort. Rick sings. 

Atlantic City 
This has some odd and interesting breaks where only a drum flourish is heard. A nice idea that got dropped (probably for the best though). Levon's vocal is not quite as subtle. 

Circle of Time 
This is new and it's a loping mid-sixties style soul influenced song. Think about mid-period Robert Parker or Levon & The Hawks to get the feel. Rick Danko sings lead, supported (I think) by a female singer. The prominent instruments are bass, drums and guitar with less piano and a touch of synth with a horns sounds. I'd guess an unfinished demo rather than a finished out-take, the bass is so over-prominent that it can't be a final mix, though all the elements are there. Jim Weider bends some very un-Band like guitar sounds. If this had made it through to Jericho. it would definitely have been one of the best tracks on the album. The bass on Circle of Time doesn't sound like Rick Danko; my guess is that it's Rob Leon. Guitar is likely Colin Linden again. 

The Tide Will Rise (Music: Bruce Hornsby / Words: Bruce Hornsby and John Hornsby) 
Levon sings lead. This song found its way to Hornsby's January 1993 Harbor Lights album, and is a song to his ancestors, the watermen of Virginia. This is presumably an earlier version then. With words like 'they say we're a dying breed, they say we're gonna disappear' it reminds me of Cahoots, complete with tinkling orientalish synth and guitar sounds. They put out worse than this in the past (most of Islands and Cahoots for starters). Also it's hard to tell how different a clean final mix would be. 

Then next four songs run after each other, and all feature Garth on horns rather than keyboard. There are usually multiple horns. On the final versions on Jericho Bobby Strickland added sax, and Dave Douglas added trumpet. They (or others) may well be on these sessions too. 

Nobody Sings 'Em Like Ray 
Co-written by Jim Rooney. Jazzy tribute to Ray Charles with Garth Hudson performing powerfully on horns. Either there's overdubbing or assistance. Three voices share equal honours, Levon, Rick and probably Randy. It's also very catchy, and has great lyrics. It's incomprehensible that it wasn't used. 

The bass sounds more prominent than the final version. The piano is terrific. 

Keep The Home Fires Burning 
This opens with a jaunty sax lead. Vocals are shared. The harmony chorus has a C&W feel. 

Stuff You Gotta Watch 
Opens in Sgt Pepper style with a voice announcing 'the triumphant return of the Kenny Wayne Orchestra!' then goes into a very live sounding big band pastiche version of Stuff You Gotta Watch which is faster and better than the album cut. Phenomenal! 

When the Crossing The Great Divide bootleg appeared, it had the demo versions of Blind Willie McTell and Atlantic City, together with The Box Tops cover Soul Deep. These are dated 1991.
