Nice sounding Bob show from last night. Recorded about a quarter of the way up in the gigantic Hollywood Bowl. A great Tangled Up in Blue. Why the heck still no songs from the fantastic new album? Occasional idiot talkers. No other issues. Samples below. 

If burning to CD, divide between tracks 9 and 10 (before Love Sick). Not a lot of security getting into the Bowl these days. There will probably be more recordings of this show. 

The band is tremendous, but can we just all say this out loud - Bob's organ playing can be kinda interesting, but his piano playing is often inappropriate and sometimes just plain bad.

The performance / recording... 

The Good: 

Adam's voice was in fine form a can be heard quite clearly on this recording. There is very little audience chatter with the exception of the intro and some crazy femme-on-femme altercation during "Lady" than can be remotely heard. When the audience IS heard it is to great effect. Trust me on this. Adam does take a few liberties with the arrangements of some songs, most noticibly on "Strip". A pretty respectable pull overall. Settings were dialed. Still the distance from stacks and my omnis give this a bit of "roomy" feel needless to say. Alas, I wish the bass was a bit tighter.

Editor's Comments:

This is a pretty clean FM broadcast recording and a nice upgrade to the commonly circulating source, as found on the Internet Archive (http://archive.org/details/lf1978-07-08.shnf). That version has some severe synchronization errors and digital glitches particularly in the second half of the concert. Here is a fresh transfer from an off-air master cassette, recorded and played back on a great cassette deck.

The usable signal is up to 19 kHz, and no FM pilot tone is present. I think the Little Feat Radio Hour broadcast material was sourced from a radio broadcast. The broadcast is not live-to-air, but from an edited pre-FM reel by Nippon Broadcasting Corporation. During the 1970s, channel inversion and reversal was a common practice of their live concert broadcasts. Whether this was done to foil bootleggers, or to provide stereo widening is uncertain, but such processing splits the soundstage in two, and with the slight FM phase offset of 2 samples, has a sort of overdubbing effect. On the negative side, it also cancels some frequencies and emphasizes others. For this release I inverted and swapped the two channels and virtually eliminated the phase offset.

The edits ("//") shown in the set list are as broadcast by LFRH where much of the applause between songs was removed or voiced-over with commentary. I removed the remaining commentary. Some of the transitions are a little abrupt, and there are a lot of them in the first half of the broadcast, with edits between all but 2 tracks.

There were periodic light clicks throughout the left channel of the first two songs of the encore (tracks 13 and 14). I could not coax any automated processing tools to do what I wanted, so these were edited individually. The reason for the noise in this track was that the gain on these first two tracks of Fragment C were boosted about 10 dB. After removing the clicks, I brought the gain back in line with the rest of the material by cutting it down by 9 dB.

Restoration:
- corrected DC offset errors
- restored clipped peaks
- balanced channels and gain normalized
- swapped and inverted channels (there was interference between the 2 channels)
- shortened long fade-in at start
- removed LFRH commentary
- lightly decrackled and declicked
- phase offset correction: -0.06 ms (right channel trailed by 2-3 samples)
- repaired clicks and pops
- decreased gain of tracks 13 and 14 by 9 dB
- joined fragments and tracked

Comments:
Tracks 16-19 are available with much better sound quality on TOUCH. Tracks 1-15 are taken from CONTRACT DEMOS.  Many of the titles are incorrectly labeled on the cover (e.g. Track 9: "No Mans Land", Track 12: "City At Night", Track 16: "The Fool (Take 2)". Comes as a picture disc, using the rooftop photo from the cover of CONTRACT DEMOS. This is the original pressing on this label.

NOTES BY THE TRADER theface07:
This amazing stereo recording, taken from the soundboard master reel, showcases Taj Mahal in all his early 70's crossover blues glory. A lot of the material here is also available on the official Taj Mahal live recording from the same venue, recorded just a few months earlier, 1972's The Real Thing. My efforts to improve the sound quality of this recording, which is already superb, were minimal and include light tweaking of the frequency spectrum to eliminate some flatness and unbalanced frequency levels. I tried to focus on not altering the overall dynamic of the recording, which would eliminate the original feel of the music, while taking out some of the more subtle flaws.
I included artwork that I put together from what I could find that would sort of fit with the recording since there seems to be nothing available to my knowledge! First I had to determine the titles of most tracks, which were somewhat mislabelled by the original seeder of the source recording, who I am forever grateful to for providing such a recording!! No worries!! I managed to find the proper titles for every song but the first one! The original tracklisting is kept the same as the source with one difference: I seperated track 1 into 2 tracks since it contained 2 songs, the unknown song and Gone Fishin'. I am aware that this show could fit on one disc if some of the dead air is taken out but I decided not to do this, in efforts to keep the recording as original and complete as possible, even if it contains some near silent periods. This is what happened at the show so it's included!

Notes: 
This is a version of this recording that I compiled from two sources. I think we now have the complete recording/performance. 

SOURCE 1 (labeled as 3/9/77): Most of this is taken from an unknown audience > ? > CDR source. This source was apparently missing the last 30 second of t3 and the last 17 minutes of t4. 

SOURCE 2 (labeled as 3/3/77): In September 2012, taperchuck3 posted this source, with detailed lineage, at Traders Den. This source was missing t2, and also had cuts between some tracks. 

Both sources sounded similar (clearly from the same original source recording), but I liked the tone of source 1, even though it has a little hiss (hey, it gives it character). So I kept all of source 1 (mainly because the first 3 tracks flowed with nothing missing, no cuts between tracks). Source 1 cut off around the 45 minutes mark (usually the limit of one side of a 90 minute cassette tape). Therefore, Source 1 was missing the last 30 seconds of t3, which I spliced in from source 2. Also, source 1 was apparently missing the last 17 minutes of t4, which I spliced in from source 2. 

The correct date is March 9, because McLaughlin announces that it was Zakir's birthday. 

Enjoy, because this really is one of THE best quality Shakti live recordings that exists. The quality really is excellent and the venue sounds intimate. I can say this with confidence having recently compared the quality of all of the live Shakti recordings I had in order to get rid of some and trim down my CDR collection...

Line-Up: 
“The Three Yardbirds”: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, plus: 
Steve Winwood, Billy Wyman, Charlie Watts, Kenny Jones, Andy Fairweather-Low, Chris Stainton, Ray Cooper; mastermind: Ronnie Lane. 

OK folks, here’s the necessary trivia: Most of you may know ex-Small Face Ronnie Lane had organised his well-known September 20th, 1983 show at the Royal Albert Hall with his mates for his A.R.M.S. (Action for Research Into Multiple Sclerosis). That 150min. show was later officially released on video, and was also b’cast as a radio show by Superstar Concert Series. 

However, this show here is from the 2nd night on September 21st with the same personnel but dedicated to another good cause, dubbed appropriately “The Price’s Trust Rock Gala”. Prince Charles had just founded his charity project earlier in 1983, with Duran Duran playing the first charity show for the Prince’s Trust on July 20th. 

Therefore, he and late Princess Di attended “his” show which for this occasion had to be cut down to about two hours; obviously it was thought the royal couple may have had trouble sitting on their bums for longer than that. 

Eventually Eric dropped “Wonderful Tonight”, Steve omitted his opener “Hound Dog”, Jeff didn’t play “Good Bye Pork Pie Hat”, the All Stars left off Tulsa Time, and Ronnie “Bomber’s Moon”; only Page didn’t condense his set, most likely because with its 18plus minutes it was by far the shortest, anyway. 

So why would anyone with a somewhat sane mind ever want this show here which – as an audience recording to boot - doesn’t seem to be a match against the first night? Well, as far as I know, there is no complete version of the first night in circulation, and surprisingly not even an audience recording: the video omits Steve’s first two tracks “Hound Dog” and “Some Comes Across The Water”, and “Tulsa Time” whereas the radio show too comes without the two Winwood tracks, and lacks “Stairway to Heaven” (but contains “Tulsa Time” on the other hand). Groan! 

So, first of all, this show here is *complete*, plus the sound quality is real nice. The tape must have been recorded with high-quality equipment and sent to the Japanese bootlegger as a very low gen.copy. Most importantly though, this is the only recording that contains Steve’s “Some Comes Across The Water”. Now, this is a lovely number which IMHO is worth the admission alone! And Eric plays some intriguing guitar on this. My fave number of the entire show, I must say. Can’t figure its actual title as it seems unreleased – please correct me if I’m wrong. I don’t have the slightest idea why it was omitted from the releases of the other show. 

And finally, as The Sun made it clear on their front page the following day, the icing of this cake was silver-dressed Di who of course(!) “outshone them all”. :)

The triple bootleg came out sometime in early 1984 and cost me fortune then, as it was common with most Japanese releases but I’ve never regretted my temporary bankruptcy. So, please enjoy it as much as I did (and still do) - and share! And of course DO NOT fumble on it (i.e. no equalizer “remastering”, OK?!), don’t circulate it as mp3 or in other lossy formats - and you know well: if you sell you’ll go to hell (most likely).

notes from 
http://www.lavenaria.it/web/en/calendar/eventi/details/123-brian-eno-music-for-the-great-gallery.html 
The great Brian Eno, the undisputed contemporary master, music theorist, acclaimed producer, the inventor of ambient music and the brilliant innovator of the language of modern music has made a very special gift to the Great Gallery, the 18th century masterpiece by the architect Filippo Juvarra and the symbol of the splendor of Venaria Reale: an original soundtrack. 

I started writing “12 Seasons. Music for the Great Gallery” in my studio in London. I had seen pictures and plans of the Reggia di Venaria and I was confident I had found the right approach: I worked for a few weeks on a track that I brought to the Reggia for testing in May 2012. 
When I listened to it in the extraordinary context of the Great Gallery, however, I realized that it was not right. What I had composed - in my studio in London, wrapped up in England’s grey climate - was introspective and somewhat dark. There was not doubt in my mind that it was an “interior” track. What is most striking about the Great Gallery - and you realise as much only when you step into it - is that it is soaked in light and space: nothing further from an “interior” feeling. Juvarra had designed it to invite the world to get in, so it seemed appropriate that music should exist inside as well as outside of space, almost like a cloud or an atmosphere that would envelop the construction from the outside. 
Conceptually, this music is similar to other works I did around forty years ago (e.g., Discreet Music, 1975). I am still deeply fascinated by the range of transformations that are possible starting with a limited “stock” of original notes, and this piece is a perfect example in this sense. Nevertheless, there is also a new starting point. Building on the Reggia’s “classical” imprint, I wanted to make sure that the track was made up of several “movements” rather than a single block. Thus only 4 or 5 or 6 of the original 7 sounds I had decided to work with will eventually be used in each section. This means that the emotional quality of each section is slightly different, and as it progresses, the piece evolves and takes on different overtones. 
I love the Great Gallery of La Venaria, it is a sort of secular cathedral, and I hope that my music will encourage more people to spend time in the Gallery than it is normally the case. Brian Eno 

12 Seasons. Music for the Great Gallery of the Palace of Venaria, in its final version, is made up of two 1-hour tracks consisting of 12 sections each.
Only four speakers are in place, two at the entrance and two at the end of the Gallery, all facing the center of the hall. Visitors walking down the Gallery are wrapped into two distincts sound flows: as they approach the center of the hall, echoes of the sounds behind turn into a memory that blend in the soft reverberations of the sounds that lay ahead. 
The two movements that are complete when they meet at the heart of the Gallery. The sound tracks are made of melodic cores that are sketched and whispered, with the warmer sound of real violins in place of samplings. Pauses and silences play with the peculiar reverberation effect. The sounds are remarkably persistent before dissolving into the space, each engaged in a potentially endless chase, floating in the air, altering the perception of the Great Gallery, expanding its volumes and filling it with a different light. 

Music thus becomes an “essential constituent” of the Gallery, like a color, a scent, almost a newly crafted decoration - after the ones designed by the architects Juvarra and Alfieri. Music as a complement to space".
