Entry: "Concerts I've listened to, July 2011"
1970-06-06 Syd Barret London UK Kensington Olympia - A rare 18 minute Syd performance. Sadly, the vocals are almost completely missing. A great cleaning up of this rare show!
2011-06-24 Radiohead Glastonbury UK Glastonbury Festival - Nice, but their shows (or music) have not been super energetic lately.
1970-01-23 Pink Floyd Paris Frane Théatre Des Champs-Elysées - I looked at my big list and I guess I had listened to the AM recording at least once before. Great show. I wish a soundboard was available.
2000-10-20 Pet Shop Boys Dortmund Germany - From the Montage video. I need to see them again!
1979-08-12 OMD London UK Electric Ballroom - I love the super old OMD shows. So light and tinny, but surprisingly good sound.
1983-05-16 Jah Wobble and Prince Minneapolis MN First Avenue - Working through a large multi-disc set of Purple Rain era material. One song performed, the unreleased Cloreen Bacon Skin. Not good sound, and difficult to tell Prince is on it.
1984-10-25 Sheila E and Prince Minneapolis MN First Avenue - Good sound. Prince on one track. Awesome guitar!
1994-01-xx OMD Johannesburg South Africa Standard Bank Arena - Pretty crappy board tape. I thought I've heard better versions of this show. Not necessarily my favorite era either.
1993-05-15-16 Sting Las Vegas NV Sam Boyd Silver Bowl - Opening for the Dead and its a soundboard. Two shows, no overlap in songs. This is about when I completely gave up on Sting. Last bit of goodness.
1991-08-28 OMD Milton Keynes UK Bowl - Another one of Andy's "solo" shows. For an FM I thought that it would sound better.
1991-06-03 Yes Paris France Palais des Omnisports de Paris Bercy - Ah the big Union tour. And about a month later I would see them in Miami (from which I have a really crappy video). 160 minutes of Yes goodness. And it's a PRRP release so you know it sounds, well, pretty good. Fantastically proggy.
2011-07-03 Underworld Arras France Main Square Festival - Audience recording. Really really nice audience recording. Bouncing set list with none of that weird ambient stuff.
2007-07-14 Barcelona Spain Summercase - slightly far away audience recording. short 60 minute set.
2011-07-09 Ben Folds South Works Stage DMB Caravan 2011 - Short 60m set. Very quiet recording.
1983-09-10 OMD Liverpool UK Royal Court - I had no idea that there was a gig with new Junk Culture songs that were not yet recorded. A bit of hiss but so worth it.
1994-06-22 Pink Floyd Minneapolis MN HHH Metrodome - 1st gen source that apparently I don't already have. Too bad the beginning of AD is cute. Poor way to start the recording. Missing a bit of the high end.
1988-05-10 Bruce Springsteen Bloomington MN Met Center - My first (and perhaps favorite) Bruce show. 195 minutes of energy. From the brilliantly listenable Crystal Cat release Bloomington Night. Who did this recording and what else did they record locally?
1986-08-08 Erasure Stockholm Sweden Karlsson - Bonus DVD from the recent Wonderland reissue. Synthpop wonderfulness. Music and vocals are rough performance wise at time. Recording is spectacular.
2011-07-03 Fatboy Slim Las Vegas NV Marquee - A full FBS set! Sweet.
1979-04-18 Yes Quebec City Canada Le Colisee' de Quebec - Apparently a leaked recording from the band. Perfect sounds, and actually some really nice stereo separation.
1987-04-14 Erasure Brighton UK Dome - Another DVD rip.
1983-04-19 OMD London UK Hammersmith Odeon - I'm not sure if I have other shows from the Dazzle Ships tour. OK sound. Like the rest of the other OOMD shows I've listened to recently, it runs fast.
