The Warehouse

The last approximately 30 seconds of "24 hours at a time" was the only missing music in the FM master recording and were spliced in from the post from Gaston on Dec. 30, 2009 at torrent #283198. (from FM of unknown lineage) The rest of this is with this

14: auld lang syne (New Year's in New Orleans) >

16: searchin' for a rainbow 6:33
17: will the circle be unbroken (with radio talkover idiot) 9:18

Total runtime: 105:38

There are a few disc break options but this one was the most sequentially convenient one (a commercial break between tracks 7 and 8 was edited out. There were a couple of those in this broadcast and track 8 begins with the radio DJ saying and once again the Marshall Tucker Band...) Thanks to the one spliced track this is the complete show. All the songs are complete and the only reel change started just before a song.

Joy Division - 1980-04-02/03 - London, UK (AUD/FLAC)

(Audience FLAC)

Joy Division 
First Two Nights (of 3) at the Moonlight Club, London 
(from waterisnat's M2 sources) 
April 2, 1980 / April 3, 1980 

Source: M2 cassettes as seeded on DAD by waterisnat in 2005 
Lineage: ??? - FLAC - Adobe Audition (pitch correction, EQ, re-tracking at 32bit resolution, then dithered to 16bit) - FLAC level 5 

01 The Sound Of Music 
02 Wilderness 
03 Colony 
04 Love Will Tear Us Apart 
05 A Means To An End 
06 Transmission 
07 Dead Souls 
08 Sister Ray (not included here because of official release on Still) 

01 Love Will Tear Us Apart 
02 Glass 
03 Digital 
04 Heart And Soul 
05 Isolation 
06 Disorder 
07 Atrocity Exhibition 
08 Atmosphere 

Two *amazing* audience-sourced shows made even better. You want, no, you NEED to grab these if you pulled either the M2s last year as seeded by waterisnat, or the other Moonlight package (of lesser quality) also seeded by waterisnat earlier this year. Both have been pitch-corrected, both have been re-EQ'ed to shine. It is my opinion that these sets are the finest audience tapes of Joy Division to have been unearthed to date - the only way they could be better is if a master, master clone or M1 surfaces. I believe the sound of these tapes easily outshines any of the Duncan shows (the more common taper for gigs such as the Lyceum, Bournemouth, etc). 

Highlights include the "bar band" version of LWTUA on the 2nd (Ian: "You can tell we've not rehearsed for a while", with Bernard chipping in "First time we've played that all on guitars!" and Ian laughing afterwards), the amazing "greatest hits" set in its entirety on the 3rd (a rare outing for Glass, a smashing Disorder, a haunting Atrocity Exhibition, ...), the blistering Transmission on the 2nd...

Richard Thompson was opening for Bonnie Raitt during her tour in the Spring of 1989, which explains his 50 minute appearance here. But I don't see any documentation that Raitt played this Grand Rapids venue as the headliner, though she was in Cleveland on May 16, 1989, and in Cincinnati on May 21, 1989. As good as this recording is of Thompson, it seems odd that there is no recording of Raitt circulating. Certainly there is nothing cited in db.etree and nothing for that date has been uploaded here. Maybe there is something said in the show that I missed. I'd like to say that I was a thoughtful, intelligent teenager then and that I went to the show, but I think Maria and I were saving our pennies hoping that Madonna would play somewhere near us in 1990. Auburn Hills!!

The show is described as - and it sounds like it very well good be - a soundboard recording. The equipment used is unknown. Maria got this in a CD trade from her UK contact and extracted the show to a hard drive in 2011 using EAC. I checked the WAV files for SBEs, converted it to FLAC (level 8), generated a .ffp file, and created the torrent. Nothing else was altered. I do not see that it has ever appeared here on DIME. I found none of the tracks here listed and used on "RT - The Life and Music of Richard Thompson."

4) Slightly different than on "Angel's Egg"

From Calyx website:
Following Daevid Allen and Gilli Smyth's decision to take a break, newcomer Steve Hillage is asked to lead an alternate line-up of the band, christened ParaGong, including veteran Didier
Malherbe, and other recent recruit Tim Blake; for a while, ex-Moving Gelatine Plates bassist Didier Thibault (who had been recommended by Gomelsky to replace Moze in Magma a few months
before) joins the band; setlist includes Kevin Ayers' "Why Are We Sleeping" and an early version of "I Never Glid Before". Much hiss (no dolby) but the music is worth it. No dates and venues, any more detail is welcome.

UPGRADED: because this version comes from a much lower generation tape than the previous release. Even though the sound quality was rated "excellent" on the first release, it was dull compared to this one! Sound quality is amazing on this new version.

Although it's from a lower generation tape, it's still not the master. There were no more digital clicks, no hiss, but a few of the cuts found on the previous tape were still there (and were equally repaired). And very surprisingly, a new cut was in "Chandra" (at 7'50) yet this song was complete on the previous tape; and a longer cut was found on "Wingful Of Eyes" (still at 2'22). So these songs were patched with the previous version (a slight change of sound can be heard).

The introduction was also missing on this new tape, so it has been restored here using the previous version.

During the second half of 1975, GONG was in a transition phase: Daevid Allen had left the group, and Steve Hillage was seen as the new leader of the band, true to the spirit of its founder and its Pot Head Pixies. However, Gong was already moving towards a more instrumental music and a sophisticated jazz-rock. Many new songs were created on stage during these few months, but when it came to record them for the album Shamal, Steve Hillage had decided to quit.
This is what makes live recordings of this short pre-Shamal period with Hillage all the more fascinating.

This concert is a rare document too, in many ways.
- Pierre Moerlen, absent because of multiple musical activities is replaced exceptionally by Laurie Allan.
- The band plays a lot of pieces not yet released on album. In addition to the future Shamal titles, they play an early version of "Lunar Musick Suite and "Electrick Gypsies", which would be later recorded by Steve Hillage for his solo album "L" in 1976. This first version played by Gong is quite exceptional.
- Similarly, the song "I'm Beginning to See The Light" played here, remains unreleased to this day.
- The "Isle of Everywhere" is not completed by the theme "Get it inner" as was the case for all other Gong concerts from this period (including the officially released "Live at Sherwood Forest" recorded November 25, 1975)

There is much discussion about the authenticity about these tracks, but I will just offer a few of my own personal comments. Nearly everyone is familiar with the four original Lightning demos: Fight Fire With Fire, Ride The Lightning, Creeping Death, and When Hell Freezes Over; those have circulated on numerous bootlegs including my personal favorite, 'Horsemen of the Apokalypse'. Then somewhere around 2006(?) the unheard demo for Trapped Under Ice surfaced on a boot called 'Sucking My Love'. That demo has since been confirmed to be legit by Metallica authorities. The real gems of this particular vinyl are the other two tracks, Fade To Black and For Whom The Bell Tolls. Are they real? I had heard they are rips from backing tracks of the Guitar Hero game. But I compared these diligently and they are totally different from those. If these are fakes they are extremely well done. Just listen to the extended exit on Bellz, and don't miss that signature guitar play in the last 2 seconds that sounds a lot like the '82 demos. 

On the 1992 doc 'A Year and a Half in the Life of Metallica', James mentions that he still had RTL riffs recorded on his 4Track from 1984. And with the issue of all these deluxe album box sets, we know that they had a great deal of demos and rehearsal tapes lying around. One more note of interest, just look up this vinyl album on Discogs: Check out what the site says: "This release has been blocked from sale in the marketplace. It is not permitted to sell this item on Discogs." My guess is that Metallica blocked the sale of it because its contents are real.

Broadcast on WNEW radio Live

The 1976 Summer Tour began May 28, 1976 in Roanoke, Virginia. The Roosevelt stadium concert was number 16 in a tour that would include 54 shows. The band members had recently finished solo projects and had reconvened to begin their biggest American concert tour to date. 
At the time there was still an enormous interest in the material from their most recent album Relayer. Gates of Delirium and Soundchaser, both from that album, were played in Jersey City that night.

From one that was there: “We were there in 6 inches of mud in ‘76 at Roosevelt stadium in New Jersey for RELAYER”. – Notes from the Edge

“Gates of Delirium is a war song, a battle scene, but it’s not to explain war or 
denounce it, really. It’s an emotional description with the slight feeling at the end of ‘do we have to go through this forever?’ There’s a prelude, a change, a victory tune, and peace at the end, with hope for the future ….” – Jon Anderson

“Sound Chaser is like this madman from hell … an indescribable mixture of Patrick’s jazzy keyboards and my weird sort of flamenco electric, which I’m sure has never been done before and will probably never be done again!” – Steve Howe

Strangely enough, “To Be Over”, the last of the three songs from “Relayer” had been dropped from the set list for reasons unknown, perhaps to allow the band to include a few more of the old stage favorites like “Siberian Khatru” and “Heart of the Sunrise”.

“The concert was originally broadcast on WNEW from New York. According to former WNEW-FM DJ Richard Neer in his book, 'FM', there was no mixing of the show being done by the radio station engineers; the feed going out over the air was what the guy doing Yes' sound sent out. 
(This was because the manager of WNEW at the time was too cheap to pay Neer and a sound engineer companion of his the few hundred bucks extra they would have charged to do an on-the-fly broadcast mix). Hence the rather interesting variations in sound quality as the show progressed.”
– Forgotten

Another enthusiastic fan recalled: “It was 100 degrees that day. When we finally got to the stadium, there was about a battalion of police off to one side. The line of fans was about 10 abreast and went around the stadium. The police had bullhorns and were telling people "no glass inside the stadium". When we got inside, there was a hot air balloon tethered over the stage, with the cover FROM TALES FROM TOPOGRAPHIC OCEANS on it! The opening was the Poussette Dart band. Between the opening and Yes, there were fireworks. One of the rocket stands fell over during launch and a rocket shot across the infield and blew up under a car! Finally, true dark fell around 9:00 PM and Yes began to play. During the battle scenes in "Gates of Delirium", the laser (electric green, dark blue) was shot into the audience in random, staccato bursts.
Later during "Soon", the laser fanned out and spun over the audience, who craned up hands over their heads to touch the light. - Notes From The Edge.

It is with great pleasure that we now bring you this remaster of a legendary performance by a legendary band. Enjoy this great 1976 moment with Yes.

Notes from the Re-master:

Since the source for this concert is a radio broadcast, the sound quality is generally good to begin with. The actual source was a CD version of the master tapes obtained from the broadcasting radio station WNEW. We would like to thank Shaun Toole for providing this source to us.

Viable music signal was present up to 18,000 Hz. This is quite rare for progressive rock concerts available from the 1970’s and makes this recording quite unique. A radio transmission or microphone / patch cord buzz occurred in the left channel off and on throughout the show and needed to be corrected. Fortunately, the buzz was specifically identified in the frequency spectrum and was surgically attacked. This approach produced a minimal effect on the remainder of the music. Pops and clicks occurred frequently and were manually removed. Radio announcer volume was out of proportion to the music in some segments and needed to be adjusted. Finally, only a slight amount of noise reduction was needed during quiet segments.

Known Faults: Last minute of “Me And The Boys” patched from Live In Rock City bootleg. 

Another excavation from the newly relocated JEMS Archive is not one but two masters of Thin Lizzy’s 1976 Ford Auditorium show, broadcast live on WABX in the Motor City. Jared lived in Detroit at the time and surely recorded one of the tapes himself. I presume he obtained the second master because his first cuts about five minutes early. His was a 60-minute cassette; the second is a 120. 

The broadcast is a well-traveled document of the band in the prime of their career, perhaps best known by the bootleg title Live In Rock City. That release utilized an off-air recording at least a couple generations removed from a master and suffers from FM noise issues perhaps related to station tuning. 

For this release, we composited the best of Jared’s two recordings, augmenting where needed to fill in gaps and upgrade particular songs. We also left some of the on-air deejay chatter intact which is missing on the bootleg. 

Jared’s cassette masters offer a material upgrade of the broadcast, though still not quite perfect. To my ears, overall sound quality improves a bit after the first couple of songs. If Live In Rock City was locked in 80% of the way, Jared’s is closer to 95% but still has a touch of noise on the margins and vocal sibilance that may have been there in the broadcast no matter what. However, the whole performance now sounds substantially better than the circulating version as you can hear in the samples below. I was also able to remove a considerable amount of the feedback in the opening track, “Jailbreak,” that’s in the broadcast; modern software makes it relatively easy to remove such defects. 

The only thing Jared’s tapes were missing was the very end of “Me And The Boys” which has been patched in from the Live In Rock City source. 

The 1976 'Jailbreak' tour was the epitome of a hard working band finally breaking out. It officially began on March 5th at Sheffield University headlining 29 shows in 31 days ending with a show at the New Victoria Theatre in London on April 4th. After a two week break, the band landed stateside hopscotching between headlining and supporting at least eight different bands (Aerosmith, The Tubes, Be Bop Deluxe, Journey, Rush, Golden Earring, Slade and Nazareth).

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.
