The Abyss, Houston, TX
15 October 1994
Here we have another soundboard recording from the fall 1994 Ozric tour. This is from
Houston, Texas. This show was about midway through the tour, and the Ozrics are in fine
form. There's a little bit of everything on this recording - from Seaweed speaking to the
audience, a rare occurrence to be sure, to Ed & Jon relating how they had spoken to
someone earlier who told them there was "nothing cosmic in the universe". Appropriate
expressions of incredulity ensue.
Quality is very good, although there are minor glitches here and there, some volume
fluctuation, and a bit of clipping on the loud parts. The clipping is not audible, at least
not to my ears, your mileage may vary.
As with many of these recordings, I received it in a trade many years ago, and from
one of my usual trading partners. I found no evidence, through frequency and spectrum
analysis, of lossy origins, and performed the following:
Original CD-Rs --> EAC (CD image extraction) --> Sound Forge 7.0 (track extraction)
--> FLAC Encoding (L6) --> WAV --> TLH (fix SBEs) --> FLAC (L8)
1. Og Ha Be
3. White Rhino Tea
4. Astro Cortex
5. Vita Voom
6. There's A Planet Here
1. The Throbbe -> Beard of Joy ->
3. Dissolution -> Vibuthi Jam
4. Kick Muck
6. Sniffing Dog
Total time 1:56:22
Shreddy Eddy Wynne - guitar, keys
Jumpin' Jon (Champignon) - flutes, vocalizations, twirling, clever patter
Seaweed - synths
Zia Gelani - bass
Rad - drums
Once again, the files as I received them were not cut on sector boundaries. So I converted to WAV, fixed sector boundary errors using Trader's Little Helper, and finally encoded to FLAC again.
