Tape story:
The venue is the main arena in Bologna (actually Casalecchio di Reno) formerly known as Futurshow Station and PalaMalaguti I had a seat at the left of the first level gallery in front of the stage at about 60 m from it Very quite people around me (except for the third encore, of course...) The sound of the recording is excellent Several late arrivers with seats in my raw passed in front of me during Closedown, others left their seats during the first encore break and came back during At Night, resulting in temporary muffled sound in both tracks (30+10 secs)

What about the show?
It was my fourth The Cure show (the others were all in the Milan area in 1992, 2008 and 2012; 2008 and 2012 were also taped) A very enjoyable concert with an excellent screen and light show quite uncommon for The Cure A possible "setlist of my dreams" with the "Seventeen Seconds encore", Charlotte Sometimes and also IOTWCS debuting in the European Leg of the 2016 Tour (neglecting 7 pre-1982 tracks!!!... never in this leg) Happy Birthday to Roger was sung at the end of the first encore break

Technical notes:
- The total running time of the recording was 2:47:06; I have cut the first 52 secs and last useless 24 secs reducing the master to 2:45:50.
- I have amplified (+5.5 dB on the left channel, +4.5 dB on the right channel) and slightly compressed (-12 dB/1.5:1) the whole recording and faded-out the last 10 secs
- If you burn to audio CD, you will need 3 CDs (CD1: 01-13; CD2: 14-25; CD3: 26-36)

notes
Excellent soundboard recording. Assembled from three different sources to make it as complete as possible. Most of this comes from the excellent but slightly chopped KBFH CDR. "Take What You Want" and the beginning of "You're All I've Got Tonight" are from an obscure vinyl source interview which I have on CDR. The intro. to "Since I Held You" is from the old vinyl boot 59 Stude' - The Backseat.

For reference, omitted Track 01 is an excerpt from Wendy Carlos' (Walter, when she wrote it) 'March of A Clockwork Orange' (a re-working of 'Ode to Joy' from Beethoven's ninth symphony), which was included in Stanley Kubrick's film, 'A Clockwork Orange', as well as subsequent soundtrack(s).

Comments:
George Harrison was famously averse to performing in public, having only embarked on one full-length (disasterous) tour in 1974 in the twenty years following the Beatles' breakup. Lured out of retirement by Eric Clapton, he played a two-week tour of Japan in late 1991 backed by EC and his touring band; despite rumors of a broader North American and European tour, no further dates were scheduled.

With the exception of this one. This was a charity event for the "Natural Law Party" at London's Royal Albert Hall the following spring; George played a somewhat truncated (95 minutes) version of the Japan setlist, augmented with guests Joe Walsh and Gary Moore to open the show. Eric Clapton was unavailable to reprise the role he'd played in Japan, so Mike Campbell (of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) filled in competently. Other guests during George's set included Joe Walsh on "Roll Over Beethoven," and Gary Moore and Ringo Starr on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps."

Following this show, George withdrew into seclusion again. He performed at "Bob Fest" in New York later that year, and guested with Ravi Shankar on a VH-1 special in 1997, but this was his last headlining appearance. He ultimately died of lung cancer in December 2001. (Many thanks to commenter "Marc911" for the additional detail included above.)

In terms of sound quality, it's not the best recording but certainly good -- and more than acceptable considering the historic nature of this show. Dynamics are good but not great, the overall mix is solid, and there's not really any close-mic audience interference to distract from the listening. The taper was either a ways back from the PA or not in a good taping location, so the recording sounds a bit distant. (Given that I'm holding a 1992 recording to 2013 taping standards -- for the era, it's very good.)

notes by the trader
I picked this up at a record show in Dallas, TX along with a couple of others. I did not see it posted, but I saw a discussion on it at the link provided below. I doubt it is anything new, but I thought I would rip it and share it for the collectors that want all things Pink Floyd.

Comment from Lazenby on page 5:
"One Of These Days" 1 and 2 are the standard demos with Nick's voice looping. "Shine On" is only parts 1-5 I believe, and cuts in cold midway through the intro. If it's a rough mix (it sounds like it's from an old cassette) then it's between the Extraction and final mixes; the unused elements are no longer intact.

"Moonhead" sounds nice here, probably the cleanest I've heard, though there is a bad tape glitch at one point. 

The "Echoes" demo just sounds like the Meddle version folded to mono, with noticeable distortion and jumps where material is missing. (The jumps make me think it's from an acetate.)

This is definitely one of the best Sabbath bootlegs around; the sound is magnificent. They rocked! All songs were loud, clear and down and dirty! Ozzy was alive, looked and sounded good. His voice only cracked a couple of times. He was smiling, laughing, jumping and screaming at everyone to get "Fuckin' Louder"...The Arena was sold out and the crowd was loud... Tony, Geezer and Bill all JAMMED!!!! They have not missed a beat even after all these years.

notes by the taper Came out okay considering I was in the very last row way in the back. But at least I was in a spot I could stand and have my mics above mouth level. 

I had been wanting to get out of town for a few days and had my eye on another gig in a different part of the state but hadn't yet made arrangements. Might have just kept thinking about it until the window closed. But a minus $100 ticket came my way and over the course of an hour Tuesday morning I booked here to Vegas to Reno to San Francisco and back hitting 4 gigs total. 

Getting to this one was a bit of nailbiter. The bus was having mechanical difficulties and had to pull over a few times. There were at least a dozen Stones fans on board.

Description: Released as part of TattooDad’s quest to liberate “ubertrader” material, this pro-shot DVD features the second-half of the show on a cold night in Verona. The first-half of the concert is not known to exist but intriguingly the discs are marked respectively as Act 2 and Act 3 so there is scope for this to become a 3 disc set in the future, although, as with a similar video from Toronto in 1984, we probably shouldn’t hold our collective breaths for Act 1!

This transitional period in Bruce’s career is much maligned by some fans but this performance showcases the “Other Band” after a year on the road and the DVD reveals a very competent musical outfit. The band could never hope to engender the same emotional connection with the fans as its E-Street equivalents but no-one in Verona that night would have thought anything other than they had seen a great show; the encore in particular is excellent with “My Beautiful Reward” and “ Workin’ On the Highway” being notable highlights. Special mention too for a very nice acoustic version of “Thunder Road”.

As is the norm with HOJO, the production is of high quality and the Shakespearian theme is a nice touch. The video is excellent, particularly considering its age, and contains enough audience shots to ensure it doesn’t feel sterile. Unfortunately, the audio doesn’t quite reach the same standard. HOJO cleaned up the original audio to remove the hiss which marred the overall sound. It was then remixed with audience recordings to add a little atmosphere and try to overcome the distortion on the original source, presumably as a result of the audio level being set too high when it was recorded. The extent to which the distortion is still noticeable and will irritate may depend on viewers’ equipment or audio set-up; this reviewer found it difficult to listen to at certain moments on his PC but experienced no such problems when viewing the show through the magic of television. Whatever the case, the finished mix is a significant improvement on the original source recording and audio collectors should note it has also been made available on CD. For the purists, the original soundtrack is available as optional audio on the DVD.

The bonus video features a performance from Oslo on the final night of the 1993 European tour. Featuring Warren Kaye, aka roadie “Chainsaw, on guitar and lead vocals, it is, frankly, scary and shouldn’t be viewed by anyone with a weak heart- ever wanted to see Roy Bittan or Shayne Fontayne “headbanging”?! You may even be thankful next time Wolfgang Niedecken or Terrence Trent D’Arby shares the stage with Bruce!
