Vangelis & Jon - "It`s Just Pure, Improvisational Genius" 2cd
Live at University College, Royce Hall, LA, Nov 7, 1986 2cd
This recording has been re-editted to the best of my knowledge of Vangelis music.
As i`m not very familiar with Vangelis music, it has been hard for me to pick the
exact point to cut the tracks in pieces.
I don`t have many Vangelis cd`s and those i do have do not have most tracks
included here on them.
Also live interpretations of these songs often do not match the track times of the
studio recordings, so that wasn`t much help either.
This recording has been slightly tweaked for a better and fuller sound quality.
There are however some glitches and distortion in the source that could not be
removed, such as the sound of the microphone being touched or the
recorder/microphone not coping very well with the soundlevel of the concert
(which, as you can read in the other textfile included was pretty loud but good
with speakers as large as buildings (well small building anyway).
Also the source tape too must have suffered through the years!
That being said, i think the overal sound quality is a very good
audience recording rating B to B+ (to me and my ears).
The tracks titles (most of the Vangelis solo tracks) are unclear
to me, so any help identifying them would be much appreciated.
On the few different versions of this recodring the same titles
were used, and some are unknown titles.
Also the last track on cd1 and the first track on cd2 are (i think)
one and the same but cut in two, but i left it that way because
they are almost impossible to paste together well.
This recording was offered to me as a 2cd (thanks AH) with one track per cd.
These two tracks were then ripped (wave) to HDD and tweaked
and re-editted using Cool Edit Pro 2.1 to separate tracks.
These were then converted to FLAC using Traders Little Helper.
The usual EAC logs and md5 checksums are included for both discs.
The cover art is a simple reworking of the original vynil album cover,
and the use of some other new things.
Also included is an additional info file taken from a Vangelis fan site,
telling a little story about this show (please read it for more info).
