I got this concert tape in a trade about 18 years ago.
I was assured that this tape contains the whole performance
and that it is 1st generation. I wanted to upload this one
on Dime because there is a small but loyal Iggy following
that snaps these up as soon as the upload begins. I also
wanted again to pay back all the great people that've increased
my music collection. I wasn't at this show so I'll give you
a brief rundown of the recording, good points and bad.
First, the good points:
1) As mentioned above, this recording is complete.
2) There is no distortion present. There are no speed problems
or any other serious faults to prevent you from enjoying this
show. Hiss is non-existent.
3) This is a very clear recording. The vocals & most instruments
come through very clearly and distinctly. I think that the
taper was VERY close to the stage when making this recording.
4) Amazingly, there is virtually NO audience chatter,
whistling, screaming, etc. present on this tape. The taper
was lucky to be surrounded by polite fans who were there for
the music, not by selfish assholes who wanted to hear
Second, the bad (extremely minor) points:
1) The bass is a bit hard to hear. (Drums, vocals, keyboards
and guitar come through loud & clear.)
2) There is a tape flip at ~ 2:05 on track 15. I believe
that I seamlessly welded this to the 1st part of the track.
On phones, there is a mild rhythmic thump from ~ 1:30 to
~ 2:10 on the same track due to a faulty reel wheel at the
end of side A. We've all heard this before on different
cassette tapes ; it's a risk of using that type of recording
media. I don't know if it's also present on the master tape.
3) The recording sounds a little trebly to me. There's
not a lot of bass response. For these reasons & the reasons in
2) above, I gave this an ex minus. Otherwise, I think that you'll
love the show.
So there you have it. This is the raw recording that I've had lo
these many years. I changed NOTHING about this recording except
to track it and to remove a few taper stops that were a bit jarring
to the listening experience. No music is missing. This show fits
on 2 74 min. CDs. CD 1 = Tracks 1 - 14. CD 2 = Tracks 15 - 25.
That's about all that I can think of to say, so let's wrap this up.
Finally, please don't buy, sell or convert this show to mp3 or
any other lossy format. Please seed this as long as you can.
Please trade this freely as it probably is fairly uncirculated.
This show will be a welcome addition to any Iggy Pop fan's
collection. I think that ALL of you will really love this show.
I will post a sample to help some of you decide whether or not to
download this but trust me, it is basically unnecessary. If you
were at this show, please share your memories. I was at Hammerjacks
once for Johnny Winter on 2/3/1990 ; does it still exist ? Please
chime in if you know. So, as Mr. Natural keeps on and on and on saying,
have fun, don't freak out and enjoy the concert !
