Entry: "Concerts I've listened to, April 2009"
2008-10-10 Prince New York City Gansevoort Hotel - Off-tour show. Excellent sound. Very loose. Nothing super spectactular in the show... now on to the aftershow. OK, I have to admit, that even over 4 hours of music across 3 sets, this show really holds up. Oh sure, it's not like back in the day, but it's pretty solid.
2009-03-23 Bruce Springsteen Asbury Park NJ Convention Center - Rehersal Night 1 (The guinea pig night).
1985-02-23 Prince Los Angeles CA Forum - Crazy long show with Bruce Springsteen and Madonna performing with Prince on Baby I'm a Star. MUCH better sound than I've heard in the past. Must be a soundboard. Last three songs take 53 minute. Nice. The middle part of the Purple Rain shows are so boring though...
1996-09-05 Nine Inch Nails New York NY Irving Plaza - "Night of Nothing" NIN, Prick and PWEI. Soundboard off of a promo tape. How come I've never seen that. I've had a very crappy tape of this show for years (probably 12). Probably not the best band Trent's had, but a very unique show.
1984-07-21 Roger Waters East Rutherford NJ Brendon Byrne Arena - Newly surfaced complete audidence tape from a stereo VHS recording. Nice ambiance.
1974-03-09 Bruce Springsteen Houston TX - Complete. Broadcast sound quality sound.
1974-03-10 Bruce Springsteen Houston TX - Complete. Broadcast sound quality sound. But not as good as the night before. Very little overlap with the night before.
1984-10-25 Prince Minneapolis MN Seventh Street Entry - Hot little jam.
1983-09-02 Talking Heads Berkeley CA Greek Theater - Similar to the Stop Making Sense setlist, but much earlier in the tour I believe. First of all, fantastic recording. Amazing performance. Truly the height of ArtRock!
1972-08-22 Genesis Genoa Italy Teatro Alcyone - From unprocessed master tape. Only performance of Seven Stone, which I have no idea which album it's from.
2001-06-10 Living Colour Buenos Aires Argentina Obras Sanitarias - Broadcast. Smoking performance.
1972-12-09 Pink Floyd Zurich Switzerland Hallenstadion - Speed corrected 2nd source. Nice. Childhood's End!
2009-04-15 Ultravox Sheffield City Hall - Yeah! An Ultravox reunion show, but alas nothing all that interesting.!
1971-06-04 Pink Floyd Dusseldorf Germany Philips Veranstal Tungshalle - 8 songs over 107 minutes: pricessless. Not the best sound, but speed corrected.
1992-12-04 David Gilmour Cali Columbia - Seriously, I never knew this existed. 4 songs, including You Know I'm Right. Sloppy gig, but a good listen. Also included Dave playing behind Roger Daltry.
1978-xx-xx David Gilmour CBS Promo - audio soundtrack of the 5 track promo film.
2009-03-19 Allman Brothers Band New York City NY Beacon Theater - With Eric Clapton. OK, just listening to the Clapton part. Officially release soundboard.
2009-03-20 Allman Brothers Band New York City NY Beacon Theater - With Eric Clapton. A couple of different tracks than the night before.
1970-09-21 Pink Floyd Montreaux Switzerland Casino - A restoration project of both shows to try to make complete shows out of all sources. What great performances!
2009-04-19 The Cure Indio CA Coachella Music Festival - Nice clear sound but with some expected remnants of an outdoor show.
