::: VERY fine FM now that it's remastered. Check samples for chagrin or deelite estimations.
::: Warts: Repaired dullspots & dropouts but surely missed a few. Slight channel drift or tape bleedthru in background in a few spots. #08 cuts.
::: This pre-recorded show was broadcast 1973-03-31 at 18.30.
::: On 1973-03-31 Trapeze actually played the Walsall Town Hall (near Birningham).
::: The actual date of the concert is unknown.
::: COMPARISON CLAUSE: This Mk2 version is a REMASTER of "Lucifer Burns" original DIME upload.
::: "Lucifer Burns" original upload is now referred to as Mk1.
::: Claire Hammill was also on the program, but the Trapeze recording date may have featured a different pairing.
::: "You Are The Music ...We're Just The Band" had just been released in January.
::: Trapeze was preparing to tour the USA to promote their new album (presumably in April).
::: #08 cuts well into it - could be only halfway thru, but likely missing about 2 mins.
::: It would be great to A) get the conclusion of #8, regardless of quality, or B) get a lower gen or different capture. Can you help?
::: 3 of the 4 songs in this set were featured on "You Are The Music ...We're Just The Band".
::: NOTHING here is the same as the "Live Way Back To The Bone" Receiver Records CD versions.
::: SMALL file size due to only the better of the 2 channels being used (and it was mono anyway).
Recording Information ::: BBC1 radio broadcast -> off-air master tape -> ? -> unknown generation cassette -> CD-R -> EAC -> wav -> TLH -> flacs -> DIME.
Remastering 2017-07-xx ::: flacs -> Audacity [fades, manual one-at-a-time glitch, pop, click, dropout & dullspot repairs, volume adjustments, +5.7% averaged pitch (speed) fix with single pass after frequency analysis & with pitchpipe verification, NO equalisation or noise reduction] -> CD Wave (track splits) -> flacs (Trader's Little Helper) -> yr ears. First uploaded 2017-07-xx.
Further remastering notes ::: Originally the offset was way off, about 25 cents, but ended up only using 1 channel so it didn't matter. Broadcast tape was mono but pretty stepped on in the left channel & sounds MUCH better with only the right - clearer, more high end, less dropouts, wavering & other distractions. Normally I don't adjust speed until after remastering, but couldn't stand it on this one - too far off. "You Are The Music (We're Just The Band)" is actually a fast version (probably why people hadn't commented about the slow speed before), but listen to more of the show & it sounds fine now that it's fixed - MUCH better. The remastering work did wonders as well.
Line-up ::: Mel Galley - electric guitar, background vocals // Glenn Hughes - electric bass, vocals // Dave Holland - drums // GUEST: John Ogden - congos.
Nothing here ever commercially released to my knowledge. If I'm wrong, please advise & I'll take the offending trax offline.
DimeTravel 370 ::: Thanks to the original taper & traders! This was remastered from DIMER "Lucifer Burns" original upload, which was from the collection of Steve Wunrow(DPAS). Sincere thanks to them both, along with whomever was concerned before that. ::: Corrections welcome ::: I never found a lot to interest me on the self-titled "Trapeze" album - liked "Medusa" quite a bit, but there was something about this era of the band that fascinated me. "You Are The Music ...We're Just The Band" came along, possibly as a freebie with a Creem magazine renewal, and blew me out - raw rock & roll with no apologies, not unlike the impact of Cactus' "'Ot 'N' Sweaty". "Way Back To The Bone" is pretty rippin', in fact, excellent set all the way round. Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yrs truly, Knees
