original comments from glasnostrd19 in 2009: 
A real early solo acoustic show with Joni Mitchell. This is the earliest Joni I've ever heard and she already had her distinctive vocal style. She does a bit of talking between some of the tunes, I didn't bother to seperate the talk into its own tracks as some like to do. I've had this tape for years, no idea of its lineage, there is likely a better source for this out there somewhere but this is quite listenable for a 41 year old analog recording. it does have one rather annoying but very brief speed problem in the source recording (or transfer between that and my copy), otherwise the recording is pretty good, especially for this early date, and Joni sounds fine. 

Almost all the other Joni Mitchell I listen to is from 76 w/ the L.A. Express and 79 w/ Metheny/Pastorious/Alias group, but some of this is nice to hear now and then. If I wasn't more interested in jazz and rock music, I'd listen to this alot more. It's classic Joni. 

If you haven't heard this (apparently parts of 2 sets) and like Joni Mitchell's unique songwriting and performance style, you will enjoy hearing this. I don't know how many generations my tape of this is, but there's only a little bit of tape noise. I have not done any processing of this except to balance the levels out, DC offset where needed, and a couple of splices to smooth out abrupt endings. I don't know how close to complete this is, but all the songs here are uninterrupted. 

Joni played a run of shows at Club 47, the only date in etree is Jan 10th, that setlist order does not match here. It does sound like track 1 may not be the opening song, hard to tell since there's no stage introduction in the recording.

This 1993 Cesme Festival showcases a brand new live song for DD, which is 'Love Voodoo'. Simon mentions that this is the very first time DD had ever played the song live in front of an audience. This sounds like some sort of television broadcast, or possibly radio broadcast, but I'm not exactly sure which one it is. I should also mention that this recording was in pretty bad shape before I cleaned it up. There were several edits, and many, many, split-second dropouts. I've dione everything with it that I can. It's not perfect, but it's much better than it was. The remaining anomolies are extremely minor...

There is some audible distortion at the start of Come Talk To Me due to overloaded vocal mics. This gets better starting at around 3:30 into the track, and the mix improves even more shortly after that. In the half of Solsbury Hill a group of people forces Peter to stay! Peter with calm voice says to the crowd: "As you can act in this way? The entire thing that we are making this evening regards the respect of the others" Shortly afterwards music leaves again.

George Harrison and friends at the St Louis Arena - the only show played that day. This is the 16th show of the 1974 North American tour. Not the complete show, with the Indian section missing. George is in good humour, and seems very positive about the show and his reception. He provides a few vocal lines in "Soundstage of Mind", and gives a brief thank you speech before "What is Life". "For you Blue" includes bass solo by Willie Weeks and a trumpet solo by Chuck Findley. The sound is average for an audience recording of the era - distant and a bit indistinct, but with a clean sound.

Two versions of this show have shown up here - Barrier's "Live at the Arena" and Black Cat's "Playing for 70 000 Yobbos". The latter is the most complete, including "Tom Cat" and "Nothing from Nothing", but is split over two discs. This is an edit of the two - mainly the Barrier version, with the missing two songs added from the Black Cat edition - presenting the show as a seamless whole for burning to DVD-Audio.

There also exists the Green Grape CD "1974-11-20 St. Louis, MO, USA", which squeezes all the tracks here onto one disc. A tape version of the entire show (i.e. including the Indian section) is said to exist.

A comparison between the Barrier and Black Cat version showed that the latter had been altered quite a lot - a big treble boost, which unfortunately merely served to emphasise its unevenness, and a large volume increase between songs - or just some sort of brickwalling normalisation. Also, there was some discrepancy on the speed - a section of the studio version of the song "Dark Horse" was used as a reference, and to correct them, the 1st version was slowed by 2%, and the Black Cat sped up by 0.3%. Some EQ was applied to the Black Cat tracks to match the sound of the Barrier version, and the volume of all tracks was raised.

A couple of songs had continuity breaks - "Sue Me Sue You Blues" had a [very smooth] cut in the middle of about 5 seconds - two sections have been patched in from elsewhere in the performance to restore it. "In my Life" had been patched already at the 1:30 mark, with a couple of jarring noises leaving the patch obvious (less so in the Black Cat version, where some sort of noise reduction/overlaying had been performed) - a new patch has been made. The was a break before "What is Life", and George's speech cuts in, and another before "My Sweet Lord" - the applause has been [further] shortened (by about 0.5 seconds) to smooth the continuity.

Sound Quality: 
8 to 8.5/10 or between Ex and Ex+

With regards to the sound if we all accept that Joe Maloneys recording from Boston on 01-10-72 is the best Bowie audience recording that there is out there, then in my opinion this is not quite as good as that, but only just. (So apart from Joe's recording from Boston it doesn't get better than this sound wise)

A phenominal audience recording for the period; from the second night of the famous "Rainbow" shows, rumoured to have been recorded by a mate of Woody Woodmansey. There is a cut in "Width of a Circle", the discs had the missing section badly replaced by a section from the officially released "Ziggy Stardust - The Motion Picture", this I obviously removed. In my opinion this is as good if not better than the famous Maloney Boston recording and must rank as one of the best Ziggy audience recordings. Part of this show has been booted as "Rainbow Theatre" and complete as "Rainbow - The Magic Theatre", It is certainly an upgrade on both of these. The recording was also remasterd and torrented a few years back as "Up yours Reg" by Downunder2 (Steve), I haven't heard this but I'd be suprised if this is any worse. The running time is annoyingly just over that of a standard disc, how you wish to split it is up to you, the artwork suggest after "My death", I actually burnt it complete on a 90 min CDR (Be warned: 90 min discs will play on most PC's but not on most home stereos)
A big thankyou to Bofinken for the discs and Steve for the additional background info. If you have this show already, I'd love to know how it compares. If not, I know your going to enjoy this.

This version is the most complete recording available of this concert to-date.

The right channel is louder than the left. There is some tape hiss, but that can be expected. The majority of "Somebody" has the left channel louder than the right. This tape recording isn't as clear as the soundboard remaster I shared previously

There is a pre-FM vinyl rip, a radio broadcast, and a remaster which probably was sourced from a lower generation copy of this soundboard tape. All are incomplete. All three have been shared on DIME at some point or another.

Geetarz Comments:
The typical Mid Valley quality touch is obvious in this reissue of the earlier set, and is not to be confused with the earlier (1999) release of the same name on the Empress Valley label, which was available in 3CD and "4 Gold CD Limited Edition" versions. 

Now, on to the goods ...
We begin with the epic October 16 performance from Philadelphia, which has been remastered by Mid Valley. 
This is a legendary Dominos show, and a personal favorite. Some older reference guides inexplicably refer to this as a soundboard, but it's clearly a marginal to average recording.
Luckily a fantastic performance makes up for any drawbacks of the source material.
"Ramblin" features some of EC's best ever slide playing. EC can at times play slide a little too precisely - but in this performance, he exhibits loopy, "out of the box" playing that clearly shows Duane Allman's influence as he dances around all the notes. I don't recall EC performing "Ramblin'" in this arrangement again, which alone makes it unique.
This performance is also notable for an incredible, mind bending, tour-de-force performance of "Why does Love...", which is, in my Not-So-Humble opinion, not only the finest performance of this song of all time, but has to be one of EC's top performances of any song, ever. If I were making a list of the "Top 25 songs EC ever played" or something like that, this song would be on that list.
And it's not just EC here. If you listen to some of the very early gigs, the band were a little loose, but here they play as a single organism, rising and falling, playing off each other for all they are worth. "Why Does..." has always had a demanding and unusual bass line, and Radle holds it down, driving the song in the same way that Entwhistle would actually drive the rhythm of The Who as Moon, or in this case Jim Gordon, lays out some 15+ minutes of drum madness, and Bobby Whitlock holding it all together with a shimmering B3 and his incredible vocals.
This performance of this song is indeed "epic", and unforgettable.
This show also features the first-ever live performance of "Motherless Children", albeit in raw form, which in a way adds to its charm. 
Now, with that aside ... how does it sound? This one is up to personal preference. Sometimes Mid Valley goes a little over the top, but I quite like this version, and, depending on your listening circumstance, you may prefer it. It's a definite change from the original, and I think that in the end it will come down to not only your personal preferences, but the volume at which you listen and how you listen (speakers, PC speakers, headphones, cheap stereo, car stereo, boom box, etc.).
Onto the Santa Monica show ... as with the earlier Philadelphia show, it's time to talk about a few of the MANY releases of this particular performance. 
Perhaps the earliest were vinyl ROIO, and of course numerous traded cassette copies of uncertain parentage, and subsequent CD release "Stormy Monday" on the Trademark of Quality (TMoQ) label. Those, and the later, "Live at Santa Monica" are incomplete, as they only feature only one of the two performances that day.
This Mid Valley release of "The Majestic Stand" (Mid Valley 068-071) is subtly remastered, and from that point on it's up to personal preference which version a listener will prefer, the Mid Valley or the version on the Paddington label version (PADD 040/041/042). 
The Mid Valley version is a little warmer and darker, the Paddington trades off being a bit brighter for a little more overall volume and hiss.
In the end, I'd suggest that you check out both the MV and Paddington versions, and choose which is *your* personal preference.
