Henry Cow 1978-07-23 Cervia Ravenna (FLAC)



Henry Cow
=========
Cervia (Italy), Festa di Unita Proletaria, Ravenna
1978-07-23

AUD tape recorded by Giorgio Di Paolo (of band Asuma Rimna) who kindly gave permission

to share his recording and who said...
"my memories are vague, a very low-tech cassette recorder was used; I probably

connected the line out of a tape deck to some PC sound card".

Extracted to .wav by Maclen who sent me the .wav files, thanks to both of you !!
TLH says "tracks look like CDDA with probability 100%"

wav > edit (Nero 8) > TLH (flac + SBE / Decode check)

Editing:
Used better sounding left channel from this mono recording
Reduced volume by -4dB
Bass EQ +5dB
Inserted track05 from hte SBD source
Gap fixed in track06 (20.37-21.45 using SBD source)
Corrected ~ 200 volume variations
Fixed many nasty glitches in the Soundcheck
Edited and re-tracked for smooth track transitions
Added flac tags using fastone artwork, any change to the files will delete these.

Quality: Worth a historic A+
===========================

I was kindly sent this AUD source from the Cervia show, which is apparently new

compared to the high-gen SBD that has appeared many times here
on Dime, including a remaster of mine) and was surpised and delighted to hear a very

different and more dynamic mix. This is similar to the
Trondheim 1976 show, where the SBD mix sounds very dry compared to the FM version

(later found to be mp3 that was here a long time ago) on which
on-stage tapes being played by the band were very prominent and were completely missing

from the SBD.

So IMHO. this is a much better involving listen, whilst it also contains 2 more tracks

(03 & 12) and extra material on other tracks (00 and 06),
plus the continuous audience and announcements in between. To check the quality (and

tagging) I just listened on my Linn digital streamer and it
sound wonderful, so I hope you'll agree that it is really worth grabbing.

Amon Duul II - Anthology 1975 (FLAC)

18. January 1975 - TV performance, Jugendzentrum Dillingen, Germany

Setlist:
01.Archy the robot
02.Lonely woman
03.Phonzeit jam
04. Surrounded by the stars
05. Traveller
06. La Krautoma

Audio was taken from the VHS proshot that was here seeded recently. Unknown lineage.


11. July 1975 - Live concert in Munich

Setlist:
01. Wir wollen
02. Wilhelm Wilhelm
03. Dreams
04. Liebeslied
05. Top of the mud
06. Mirror
07. Mr. Kraut´s jinx
08. Loosey girls
09. La Krautoma
10. Ludwig



Liner-notes:
1975 was the turning-year of Krautrock. Neu! split afer the release of their fabulous punk-orientated "Neu! 75" album.
Can released "Landed" in 1975 and "Flow Motion" in 1976 and presented are more lighter mainstream sound. Their hit "I want more"
peaked No. 26 in the UK charts: A sensation for a german band! Groups like Can or especially Tangerine Dream, had proved that they
could adapt to the different circumstances in music industry during the late seventies.
For a unique band like Amon Duul II, the pressure for international success was always on the hand. Despite the fact that they had
a great fan community in England, France and in other european countries, record producers like J├╝rgen S. Korduletsch trying
to define the direction of the band, both musically and aesthetically. Sure there was often a fight between the musicians and their producers.
Unfortuneatly the band itself consists of strong individuals, so the line-up was always changing. Of course, in the end, there was no strenght
to fight the producers ideas. On the other hand, Amon Duul II wanted to have this international success all the years ´round.
They started in Munich 1968, as a hippie community, recorded the first real Krautrock album "Phallus Dei", which lay the basis for all
to come german rockbands. In England for example their name hab become legendary, grounding a myth that last until today. In their
homeland the band was overlooked and underrated. For the early seventies there was no real german music industry for rockbands,
so Amon Duul II suffered because the lack of money prevented any plan going forward.
It was a logical consequence that they needed a new producer. Thie first result was the brilliant 1974 album "Hijack".
For this record the classic line-up had come into the studio, consisting of Chris Karrer (voc, guitar, violin), John Weinzierl (guitars),
Peter Leopold (drums), Renate Knaup (vocals), Lothar meid (bass) and Falk. U. Rogner (synthesizers). The result was a fresh and strong record,
fascinating and rich, the press reaction was aso filled with enthusiasm. It´s rather strange that this record nowadays had become
a stepchild by the band itself and also by the general musicpress. Maybe sometimes it gonna change again
In the beginning of the year 1975, the band had the chance to play in a german TV show, called Phonzeit and was held in a youth center
of the german town Dillingen. It was the last moment the classical line-up was playing together. The original video broadcast wasn´t available for years. There was a bad audio tape in circulation which
is now replaced by the better (despite the mono) audio-version of the video. Amon Duul II appearance here is extraordinary!
Most of the tunes are from the Hijack-Album, played in a relaxed and straight manner. One highlight is the spooky "Lonely woman" with Chris Karrer
as the leadsinger, playing a fine sax solo. "Surrounded by the stars" shines because of the violin-bass-guitar-synths collaboration. The sound of this TV gig in
general is really unique. Maybe the band released the complete Audio Tape official. "Surrounded by the stars" was interrupted
by the discussion of the audience with the band backstage. In th background you can hear the music roll on. It´s a shame that there
is no complete tape of the music in existance. In the end Amon Duul II playing an old german tune called "La Paloma", which is
linked to the next studio album "Made in Germany".
After the Phonzeit gig, the Music Express wrote about the new Duul project: "AD II goes to Broadway. For the next time 15 – 16 persons will be on stage, actors and
dancers. There are plans for serveral gigs in America, playing one month in Los Angeles at the Roxy Theatre and after in New York at the Beacon Theatre (Broadway) to promote their rockshow.
This teutonic shock is all about the history of Germany, which will also be the topic of their next Lp under the title SM II". Before the recording sessions started, Lothar Meid
leaved the band. For him two other Munich musicians were added. Robby Heibl (bass) who also played on 1973 album "Vive la Trance" and Nando Tischer (voc, guitar).
Before the official release of the double album "Made in Germany", Amon Duul II was going on a little promotion tour in June/July 1975 through France and played also some concerts in Germany.
During this tour the line-up changed again after some disagreements of the band members: The planned US-Tour was cancelled because of the failed organisation,
also the original album-concept had fallen to pieces. Many compositions weren´t used for this album. Another reason for the break was that the original plan, releasing a double album in the United States also
failed because of the sloppy management. The US-release (a single LP) was also separately mixed by Korduletsch in absence of the band itself.
Compared to the double album, the single LP contains some alternative mixes and longer versions of some songs.
Back to line-up change: Renate Knaup and Falk U. Rogner left the band. The remaining quintett was catched on tape during their Munich concert on 11. July 1975.
This rare tape documents the idea how the "Made inGermany" songs should have sounded live. Nando Tischer appeared here as the lead-singer, trying to calm down the unfriendly audience.
At one moment the bulk is screaming for "Renate", and Tischer had to explain that Renate is on vacation int he soputh, after an love affair with a boy. seems to be the last showdown after many internal argues.
Despite the bad sound of the tape, one highlight of this show is the long and atmospheric "Loosey girls". Also "La Krautoma" is a great rocker.
The official release of "Made in Germany" was in the fall of 1975:

The album is one of the first rock-operas in Germany about german history. Songs about Ludwig II and the Kaiser Wilhelm II,
an interview with Mr. Hitler: The whole album is a real masterpiece. Great powerful music with strange, experimental ideas. The band proved their ability to have a great variety of musical styles.

At this point the band itself don´t existed anymore, however the group reunited in 1976 again to play more relaxed music under the old name. And of course sometimes the old genius shines through. But that´s another story.
what´s left are documents of a uniqueband, that had the courage and the power in creating undefining music, that is still influental and touching today.

For this project the available music was remixed and mastered carefully.

All the best, Quinn (2011)

Iron Butterfly - Galaxy Club 1967 (FLAC)


IRON BUTTERFLY
Galaxy Club, Los Angeles, CA
1967

Lineage: traded CDR > Steinberg > Carbon-Hi-Space CDR > Flac > you

"A fantastic recording, hard and very, very psychedelic, sometimes strange."


This is an interesting tape. The original info said it's an audience tape, but I'd swear it is a soundboard. The stereo separation seems to great to not be a soundboard. How else could you have the drums in one channel and everything else in the other channel with only a little bleed through. It is a tad muffled, but otherwise the sound quality is great.

If all you know of Iron Butterfly is "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida", this 1967 show may be a shock. Recorded before their 1968 debut album, "Heavy", only four of these songs would be recorded in the studio. To once again quote the original info file that came with this recording, "very psychedelic, sometimes strange".

Lineup:
Doug Ingle (vocals, organ)
Ron Bushy (drums)
Jerry Penrod (bass)
Danny Weis (guitar)
Darryl DeLoach (tambourine)

1. Real Fright
2. Possession *
3. Filled With Fear
4. Fields Of Sun *
5. It's Up To You
6. Gloomy Day To Remember
7. Time To Ignore Evil Temptation
8. Have You Heard?
9. General As It May Seem *
10. Lonely Boy
11. Iron Butterfly Theme *
12. You Can't Win

* Included on the debut album

This is another Trade Mark of Quality (TMOQ) classic early 70's recording.
I originally copied the master reels from a Tandberg to my Revox B77 in 1986.
From the Revox copy I transferred to a DAT in the 1990's and the first generation reels were tossed out.
A bad move but the tape had so many dropouts it seemed worthless and I never though that I would have the only first generation copy around.
Didn't even think it was worthy of recording at the SP speed and recorded it at LP so the sample rate is only 32 KHz and the high-end rolls off after 16KHz.
The first task was to review and fix the original splices of the tape flips, which occur about every 22 minutes (5'' tape at 7 1/2 ips).
The bigger technical challenge was cleaning up the dropouts from the master tapes, my reel copy and the DAT copy.
A lot of time was spent removing and smoothing out the hundreds (more likely over a thousand) of the micro-gaps and volume fluctuations found on this tape.
The worst sections were during the first few minutes of each disc (beginning of each master tape reel) and again from Concentration Moon to the end (the third reel).
I originally made this without any sound filters and the bass was so heavy it was hard to listen to.
An equalization of -7dB below 400 Hz was applied to remove the muddy booming (and it is still a bit bass heavy).
Next the louder passages are distorted so to reduce the harshness the max volume was reduced using a light compression.
The overall amplitude was then raised by 4dB.
These changes improved the spectral balance but increased the background hiss levels.
So finally a light (15%) inverting noise filter was applied to reduce this hiss a little.
Care was taken not to apply this to the low frequencies thus avoiding that metallic sound.



Tracks cut with CD Wave
Flac conversion (Level 8) with fingerprints and checksums performed with Traders Little Helper

As a note.
This copy comes from the actual masters (3 - 5" reel to reel tapes) and is the complete concert (minus tape flip loss).
Relegated to the dark corners of my collection due to the dropout issue this recording is now worthy to be shared.
Still not perfect but it is much easier to listen to than my DAT tape.
Hope you all enjoy this restoration of a precious historical document.

This is the Late Show from the second night ( two nights in a row, two shows each night ). The recording is a bit "hot", but the sound is still pretty excellent. I had not listened to this tape for many years because my copy ran very, very fast. I am happy to share this speed corrected version, as this is a great show. The band is raging and Don is also really "on" here. The vocals are awesome. Don is intense in his delivery, getting more into it as the show progresses. The vocal fade out at the end of 'Doctor Dark' here is incredible. The room is silent and Don really kills it ! Following that amazing, fading finish quickly Don starts 'Bat Chain Puller' with a roar. Very cool. The band intros follow Bat Chain Puller.

After 'Sheriff Of Hong Kong' Don wishes everybody a Merry Christmas and even shouts a
"Ho Ho Ho Ho Ho" ! This is another show in which Don is very chatty and quite funny.

Interesting start here, Eric plays the Hair Pie Bass solo all the way through and then he starts it up again as Don joins in on Sax. They finish that and eventually Don plays a tape recording of himself through the mic. After that they play Hair Pie again ( bass and sax only ) !

Last year the Late Show from the first night was shared out here. Let's hope the Early shows do the same.

Aside from the occasional out of tune guitar, this is one of the better performances by the 80/81 band ! A very enjoyable listen. Have fun.

Much thanks to the taper and all of my old trading friends.

Gentle Giant-Torino (Nov. 28, 1974) (FLAC)

TOTAL LENGTH - 71:45

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _


Here's another Giant show that hasn't gotten around much. My intention
here on dime is to only seed GG shows that are not easily available
elsewhere. I'm picking shows that are mostly new to the trading
community, I don't mean shows that are just new to bit-torrent sites,
but ones that haven't traded hardly at all, period. I've been lucky
enough to get my hands on some of these through the years, so I figure
this is a good place to get them out there. Anyway, that's the plan.
Thanks to all for the kind words so far.

This particular show came to me a few years back in a trade. The guy
I got it from wasn't sure what he had at first, so he contacted me
for some help and we managed to figure it out. I've never seen this
listed anywhere else in my life, so I was thrilled the guy got in
touch with me.

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

SOUND QUALITY

Well, not the greatest. Maybe a B- or so. Still plenty enjoyable,
but those of you looking for only a few choice Giant shows might want
to pass on this one. Serious collectors - grab it. It is a full show.

I did nothing to alter this recording from the way I received it.
Excerpts from Octopus is split in two, apparently because of a tape
flip and I left it that way.

One cool thing during Excerpts - the band always included a recorder
quartet but this time, the four of them play a bit of Raconteur
Troubadour on the recorders. That only happened briefly at late 1974
European gigs like this one. Later, that tune was used during a
guitar duet instead.

Bonzo Dog Band-The BBC Recordings (Revised Edition) (FLAC)


Bonzo Dog Band - The BBC Recordings (Revised Edition) (2011 Home Made Compilation, 2CD)

Totally unexpected, one day after uploading my home made Bonzo Dog Band compilation 'The BBC Recordings' I stumbled across a bunch of unknown (and many unreleased) BBC recordings from an unknown source, no less than 37 MP3's although some in very poor quality. After listening I decided to upgrade the earlier upload with those tracks that aren't already included in the earlier upload and albeit MP3 sourced, are in a listenable sound quality and interesting to hear.

After it became obvious that I couldn't prevent compiling a second volume and as there was space left over, I decided to add also the poor quality tracks that I initially didn't want to include. Avoiding to disturb the listening pleasure I renumbered these and put them unaltered in its original file format at the end of each volume as bonus tracks. If you prefer having these tracks in the correct chronological running order simply renumber them as these are double numbered.

This revised version has also two of the officially released tracks speed adjusted as they were wrongly mastered on the official release.

The BBC Recordings - Volume 1 (November 1967 to March 1969)

Session 1 - Rec 08-11-1967 - TX Top Gear 12-11-1967

01 Mickey's Son & Daughter

14 Ready Mades*

Very early previously unknown recording of 'Brain Opera' making my earlier assumption on the first edition completely obsolete. This part is called 'Act 3, scene 1' which seems odd as the other part on CD2 is called part 3.

Session 5 - Rec 29-10-1968 - TX Saturday Club 02-11-1968

The BBC Recordings - Volume 2 (March 1969 - December 1969)

Session 9 (Part 2) - Rec early March 1969 - TX Symonds On Sunday 09-03-1969

01 Mr Apollo (Single version)

03 Ready Mades*
04 Hello Mabel*
05 Quiet Talks And Summer Walks
06 Canyons Of Your Mind*
07 Mr Apollo*

Some of the tracks of this session are of questionable quality but as this is a bit of a bordeline case I decided to include them in the chronological running order.

08 Look At Me I'm Wonderful

Track 11 is a longer version than on the first edition and includes a take on Wagner's Ring der Nibelungen.

19 The Craig Torso Christmas Show - TX Top Gear 17-12-1967

Bonus tracks
20 Sofa Head (Edited CD-version)

Total running time CD2: 77:08

Avantprog Memorial Series #2

These concerts all come from the archive of Randy Jones. A long time trader/taper who went by the name Avantprog on this forum, and Malesch on some others. Randy was a good friend, and a true Texas gentleman( despite living in the Northeast for the last decade). Randy and I made regular road trips for concerts, including our annual pilgrimages to Quebec for the Victo fest, to Progday, Nearfest, and many others. Randy passed away on December 26 2009 after a 9 month battle with liver cancer, leaving a wife and two daughters. It was their wish that I have these recordings, with an eye towards saying thank you to the community of music lovers that Randy held dear.

This concert, as legend jas it, was recorded by Jack Balchin, Henry Cow's engineer. Randy's discs were mastered at a very low level. I normalized and balanced the channels and sent the whole shebang through the Waves L3 plug-in to bring the levels up

Three tracks from this show were released on the Henry Cow Box, so are not included here.

David Bowie 1972-10-01 Boston Music Hall Memories Joe Maloney Master Recording (FLAC)


David Bowie & The Spiders From Mars 1972/10/01 - Boston Music Hall(FLAC)

DAVID BOWIE AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS
BOSTON MUSIC HALL
BOSTON, MA OCTOBER 1, 1972-JOE MALONEY MASTER RECORDING
AM>CDR>EAC>FLAC

Set list:

Disc one:

1: Hang onto yourself
2: Ziggy Stardust
3: Changes
4: The Superman
5: Life on Mars
6: Lady Stardust
7: Queen Bitch
8: Five Years
9: Space Oddity
10: Andy Warhol
11: My Death

Disc two:

1: Width of a circle
2: John, I'm only dancing
3: Starman
4: Moonage dream
5: Waiting for the man
6: White light, White heat
7: Suffragette City
8: Around and Around

This was recently transfered and is unaltered and un-EQ'd. The way you have it, is the way
the master cassettes are.

Special thanks to Joe Maloney for making this recording available.

This is for JJ and anyone else that missed out on this gem first time around. I've put this up now as I want to make sure I can finish upping this as I'm immenently waiting to go into hospital for a disc removing from my back.

JJ made a request for this show in the Newtorrent and reseed section of the forum but with joy. It was Originally shared by Homerpax, but due to a computer crash I lost the files, but fortunately had burned a hard cd copy. Consequently I've altered nothing apart from adding
this info file and some artwork. The rest is what I downloaded from Homer in february 2008. Wow I can't believe it's over three years ago.

Guys this is the daddy of all Ziggy recordings against which all others are based. It's not perfect some say it could do with some EQ, but it's by far the best Ziggy Stardust audience recording that has ever been done. So I'll leave it to you to rate the sound, but trust me this is a gem.

In my opinion this with some professional tinkering and remastering could be released officially.

Remember Bowie is a currently recording artist so support him by buying his cd's and merchandise. As stated above our thanks must go to Joe Maloney for taping this show (and others).

This is to be played at MAXIMUM Volume!!

Enjoy

Paul

11.Ali Baba (Missing from this set of files, boo hoo)
12.(Encore) Opium For The People

I have also included, from another source, again a video camera
99.Ali Baba Black Sheep, Have You Any Bullshit

The sound here is as captured, I think. It certainly could do with cleaning up in places where it gets peaky.
This is only shared as the official release seems to have ground to a terminal halt 3 years ago now, due to wrangling between band, film-maker & record/film label.
Better to rip it off if you can!

I got rid of some interview material that had been interspersed in the songs by Al Stokes, the film-maker. I felt it added nothing, and in fact just got in the way of the performances. Nothing of any real interest got said.
The film-makers managed to lose/scramble completely the "Ali Baba" file that they had. That's just damn careless in my book.
There is a possibility that an earlier saved copy will emerge one day

Daevid Allen - Guitar, Vocals
Keith The Bass - Bass, some vocals

Van Der Graaf Generator - Teatro Massimo, Milano, Italy, (February 8, 1972) (FLAC)


Van Der Graaf Generator - Teatro Massimo, Milano, Italy, February 8th 1972, from FB master.

Set list : (i think it is enough close, but any help is really appreciated)

1. Darkness (1 channel disappears for few seconds 3 or 4 times at the beginning of the song)
2. Lost
3. Man-Erg
4. Lemmings Part 1 (1 drop in the transition between the 2 parts)
5. Lemmings Part 2
6. Killer (1 drop between the applauses and the beginning of the song
and 1 channel disappears for few seconds and in some points is lower)
7. Theme one

Encores :

8. Crowd >
9. Octopus (1 drop between the applauses and the beginning of the song)

This is the third upload from the master tapes of my friend FB. This in an ultra rare show,
barely circulated, a more than decent audience recording, expecially if you consider the age
of it and the not great equipment that probably he used, but i don't know about that. Like i
said before for the others FB's tapes, please don't ask me questions i cannot replay to it....
it is just a miracle i convinced him to give to me his masters to upload over here.....the guy
is out of businness forever....

FROM A COPY OF THE MASTER 5" REELS


SOURCE:
Sennheiser 805 shotgun microphone > Uher 4000 7 1-2 ips 1/4" x 5" Reel - to - Reel > REVOX B77 w/Dolby (me) > SONY DTC 690 @ 16/32

RESTORATION AND TRANSFER BY MIKE MARTIN:
SONY DTC-690 > AUDIGY 4 (via Toslink) > AUDACITY (conversion to 16/44.1 and editing of Dropouts) > CD Wav > Flac (Level 8)


Dropouts needed to be addressed.
The recording equipment had transport issues and there would be a series of dropouts when each new reel was stared.
For the first few minutes of each tape there are gaps about every second (think 5 " reel turning once at 7 1/2 ips).
chunk chunk chunk chunk chunk chunk.
There were also dropouts throughout the tape but not as many as the beginning of each reel.
Similar issues affect many recordings from this source.
These tapes have been relegated to storage boxes all these years because of the quality issues.
The wave files have been reviewed with headphones to find the dropout gaps which were then spliced together.
Audacity is a nice wave editor and between delete and repair I removed the majority of the defects.
At this time the loudest claps between the songs were removed one clap at a time.
Some of the bumps and bruises of this tape can still be heard if you listen hard enough.
There were hundreds.
Even knowing this stuff you would likely agree that this tape sounds great for it's time.
This concert really shows how good the KINKS were back then.
Loved the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium!
Enjoy

Arthur Brown-Glastonbury (6-24-11) (FLAC)


The Crazy World of Arthur Brown - Glastonbury Spirit of '71 Stage
24 June 2011

A great performance - one of my favourites of this years festival -
from the excellent new Spirit of '71 stage.

A few minor PA crackles and minor sound alterations while trying to
keep my recorder dry on a rather wet evening - nothing serious.

A slight gap at the start of 'Fire' while Arthur attempts to get his
headgear alight!


The Bridge
All the Bells
Devils Grip
Kites
Gabriel
I Put a Spell on You
Voice of Love
Intros
Time Captives
Spontaneous Apple Creation
Nightmare
Fire Poem
Fire
Encore:
Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood


Line up - I believe is:

Arthur Brown - Vocals
Max Gest - Keyboards
Jim Mortimore - Bass
Sam Walker - Drums
Nina Gromniak - Guitar

A Disputandum production

Iron Butterfly - Goteborg 1971 (FLAC)


Iron Butterfly
Konserthuset
Goteborg, Sweden
1971-01-24
Soundboard (SQ: 10/10)

Lineage: traded CDR > Steinberg (no corrections) > Carbon-Hi-Space CDR > flac > you

Here's an Iron Butterfly soundboard from Goteborg, Sweden in A+ quality. At only two
songs, it's not complete, but they're *really* long songs. :) "In A Gadda Da Vida"
is incredible.

Setlist:
01. Butterfly Bleu (23:12)
02. In A Gadda Da Vida (24:29)
time: 47:41

Lineup
°°°°°°°°°
Doug Ingle - keys, lead vocals
Ron Bushy - drums
Lee Dorman - bass
Larry "El Rhino" Reinhart - guitar
Mike Pinera - guitar

In "Butterfly Bleu", guitarist Mike Pinera uses what he called the Magic Bag. Designed
in 1969 by Doug Forbes, who called it simply The Bag, it was worn on a strap over the
shoulder, like a wine bag, with a clear tube going to his mouth. Sound familiar? Two
years later Bob Heil would develop the Talk Box, used by Joe Walsh ("Rocky Mountain Way")
and Peter Frampton ("Do You Feel Like We Do") in 1973. They made it famous, but Iron
Butterfly and Mike Pinera did it first.
