Time: 95m (audio) / 76m (video)

Personal note:
A great show in near perfect quality (audio). This was at the benefit festival for Greenpeace: "Soundwaves for Greenpeace". Some of the best classic Cure songs are played and the show is very energetic. 'Pornography' sends shivers down your spine. Robert's hair was at its best these days ;)

AUDIO: Near perfect. One of the better audience recordings I have. Full show (besides the 'Relax'- intro)
VIDEO: Definitely a VHS rip. Quality is pretty good for an old VHS tape.
The audio is a bit distorted on the low notes, but good to listen to.
The vocals are very clear.
Sadly the last 2 songs (the best of the show) are missing.
Also 'Shake Dog Shake/Play for Today/A Strange Day/A Forest' are cut.
The perfect audio-version makes up for that. According to this was shot with a 'Ferguson' camera. All songs are chaptered.

This recording registers David Gilmour's first ever presentation in Brazil.

Just to put this into context, one have to understand the idolatry level Pink Floyd achieved here in this country. Not necessarely true respectful and knowledgeable fans (they are aorund, en masse) but many for the more "fashionable" and cool aspects of "following" on something that is famous and popular. Also one should consider people's hunger and demand for a gig such as this. Bear in mind Brazilians are not particularly known for their quiet speech and introvert characters. I found out the crowd in São Paulo (which included people from all around the country) to be specially hostile and ungraceful. An average Paulista won't say "please, excuse me" he (sometimes she) will more likely say "get the f@#k out of the way".

This gig is an extra date they added to the South American tour schedule after the initial sales for the December 12 date sold out overnight. This date had chairs added to the front of the venue, at exorbitantly space high ticket prices. The crowd was very diverse, age wise, which was nice. As it is common in Brazilian culture, many people were drunk out of their minds, though... An estimated 40 thousand people attended this show, which pretty much stopped all the traffic in the vicinities of the Stadium, in the already complicated friday evening streets in this chaotic American megalopole. Many people entered late into the concert. Thus all the angry Paulistas shouting people to sit down...

Location: I was around 20 m way form the left stack in what I think was a favourable setting, although people transited in front of me during the whole concert.

It was indeed a lovingly (magic) evening and the sound in the stadium was pretty decent, even though it reverberated/echoed a bit and sometimes a bit boomy. During the intro for Sorrow, I could feel my body vibrating along the "stadium guitar sound". Money started with no bass and was aborted. While wating a bit too long, David offered a few improvised chords, before being interrupted by the bass. After a second try, it was still not ready to go. Only during take 3 the song launched.

There is an abrupt volume switch down during Fat old sun. In the middle of Run like hell all "hell" broke loose and the people started ignoring the rules (it was quiet ironic, since the staff were acting like worm soldiers yelling people to sit down) and the wealthy masses rushed to the front of the stage, prompting us all to stand up and "fighting" for individual space. About what I commented earlier on peolple being drunk out of their wits, this recording bears testimony to this, unfortunately, as you will notice during the encore, which was partially spoiled by a very inconvenient young individual.

I have to say this: If Waters is the master of ideas and concepts, Gilmour is the master of melody, mood and feeling. I have rarely been so moved by the music in a concert as that night. Pure magic.

For you, damned souls thinking of selling this over the internet or on local shops, here is what I say: DON'T!

Here is a list of potential boot titles, though:

What a lovely evening to be in São Paulo.

We were just trying to see if you were paying attention...

Where the f@#k is it?

Take 3, go!

Do whatever you like with it, as long as you don't sell it in any way. I won't be doing a CD-ready version of it, so feel free to dither, remaster or whatever you feel like doing. Use it exclusively for personal, archiving and educational purposes only.

The alternate soundtrack (Get Rid of the Smoke) was used as the original was of lesser quality and contained several gaps. Converserly, the video had gaps that were exposed by using the new soundtrack. To fill these gaps (28min:04sec to 31min:06sec and 57min:16sec to 57min:37sec and 1hr:24min:22sec to 1hr:25min:37sec) pieces of the video from previous night in Birmingham were used. The only video that need to be patched was the hurdy gurdy solo and two string ensemble preludes.

The 11 pm setlist at Webber Hall brings some welcome changes from the early set. The wonderful “St Dominic’s Preview” mixed with “Walk on the Wild Side” and “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” returns, and we also get the first ‘75 tour recording of “Blue Money.” Released on His Band And The Street Choir, “Blue Money,” is a relative rarity, with only 18 known performances prior to this one according to the authoritative set-list histories found at 

But even more exciting is the first known live version of “I Have Finally Come To Realize,” a song recorded at the Record Plant in Sausalito within days or weeks of this show, but not released officially until 1998’s The Philosopher’s Stone. Van introduces it by saying he’d “like to do a recent song” and delivers a wonderful reading. There are only ten known performance of the track, all from 1998 and 2002, so JF’s recording is indeed a major find. 

Happily, the high quality of the early Riverside recording carries over to the late show which sounds every bit as good. Samples provided. 

Once again the band is: John Blakely on guitar; Mark T. Jordan on keyboards; David Hayes on Bass; and Tony Dey on drums. 

Here’s what JF recalls about the Riverside shows: 

“This was the fourth show in a mini-Van marathon – two shows the previous night in Irvine, the second of two this night in Riverside and one more on the afternoon of the following day in Santa Barbara. There were no seats here – people just gathered around the stage on the floor of the college basketball stadium and danced or just hung out and listened. I stood back by the sound booth in the center of the hall, warily eyeing Van’s sound people so they wouldn’t catch me recording and secretly wishing I could tap into their line feed from the stage.” 

Thanks to JF, who reached out on DIME (you could be next!) and offered us his archive, which had been sitting in boxes, 6000 miles away from where he lives today, for 20+ years. Like so many early tapers, he had great stories to tell and the memories flooded back as we sorted through tapes. We are pleased to be able to bring his work to all of you. Please let him know through your comments that you are, too. 

We also appreciate the unnamed Van collectors for helping to get JF’s masters back in his control. And finally, special thanks mjk5510, who continues serve as JEMS’ post-production and quality-control supervisor. He is essential to our process and we couldn’t do it without him.

07-Rockin' All Over the World

Missing (according to the Killing Floor & Brucebase): Darkness on the Edge of Town, Independence Day, The River, Thunder Road, Cadillac Ranch, Wreck on the Highway, and Racing in the Street.

From Brucebase: Audience tape - but only about 90 minutes - First appearence of the band in Europe since 1975. Debut of Rockin' All Over The World. Released on CDR "We're Living Through Tonight In Hamburg".

The first show of the EU leg of the River Tour. This is another of those shows that has been hard to find in lossless form. As far as we know there is no recording of the complete show. Thanks to Glenn Jackson for the cassette. A few seconds of silence between tracks where songs are missing. Volume fluctuations on a few songs, I tried to minimize them. You may have to turn the volume up a nudge, I was going to raise it but decided against it.

Iggy and The Stooges - 1974-01-19 - Toledo, OH (AUD/ FLAC) by REQUEST

(Audience FLAC)

The Toledo Sports Arena

This was recorded on a General Electric cassette recorder on an RCA CV 60 cassette. This torrent was made from that master cassette... or what remains of it. Sometime in the late 1970s, I dubbed the cassette onto a reel to reel and reused the cassette around that time. After a few years of not listening to the reel tape (probably around 1980), due to its poor quality, I cut The Stooges portion from the reel and (probably) used it for other things. The only thing from this recording that survives is most of "Search and Destroy" from the end of the master cassette. Thankfully, this was never recorded over.

For years, I've scoured over all my old reels in search of the rest of the concert. I've even tried misaligning the tape across the head to see if any remnant remains off track (I've discovered this can happen). Sadly, nothing seems to remain. I am positive I still have the cut out tape but it is likely recorded over. If I EVER discover any more of it, I'll certainly get it out there.

This one song recording has circulated since the 1980s from a single trade I made with a friend back then and most copies out there are multi-generation from his source. A few years ago, probably 2008, I made a fresh digital dub from the master cassette. I did post it on The Stooges Forum so, it's already out there. I figured I would propagate it a bit more with a torrent. If you've seen this date on Stooges lists, this is the tape referred to.


Probably 2008
Playback machine: Nakamichi CR-7A
Straight to computer with Sound Blaster card
Software: Steinberg Wavelab 4.0

I don't remember exactly but, considering the sound of the source tape, I surely did some volume and transient peak adjustments and surely applied some EQ. I don't recall using any noise reduction but it's a good possibility. Likewise, I might have applied some other minimal processing.

Note too, memory has served me that a complaint we had about this show was that Iggy's voice was difficult to hear which is evident in this recording. Even though the quality is so poor, I've so grown to regret not saving the complete recording.

ARTWORK (see further details below):

- contemporary shots inside (showing where I was seated) and outside of the arena (now demolished)
- the master cassette sides A & B
- show poster
- show ad from the Toledo Blade newspapaer
- the reel tape with enhancement to illustrate original setlist from the show 

01 - Search and Destroy (incomplete)

TIME: 4:05

Artwork details about the tape and box:

The cassette condition is as it was since the early 1980s. And, to further details about this concert, I've illustrated the reel to reel box which features a setlist of sorts. Part of the list was written when I dubbed the cassette onto the reel. Because "Rich Bitch" is listed, it was obviously after "Metallic KO" was released. I also recall "Head On" being one of the unknown tracks 5-7.

As listed on the reel box:

1. Raw Power
2. Rich Bitch
3. Heavy Liquid
4. Gimme Danger
5. unknown
6. unknown
7. unknown
8. Search and Destroy (listed at the top right of the box)
