Great atmosphere in the packed room tonight, maybe that’s because of the announcement that this clutch of shows are “most likely” the last ever in the UK
or maybe just because it’s Morrissey, and the devotion is always a notch above with his audience, the majority of whom looked like they’ve been there (just like me) throughout the 30 odd years.
I think Morrissey was maybe about to tell us that the Elvis cover (You’ll Be Gone) he just played was only one of a couple that Elvis co wrote, and that when he played it to Priscilla, she didn’t like it much
so he never attempted to write another, when the power went out, whatever, both the song & the power cut felt like a fitting metaphor.

From the original uploader:
This is my own recording from row 14, center in the arena floor. As far as I know, this show hasn’t surfaced yet. I’ve checked Dime & Hungercity regularly hoping it would appear, but it hasn’t, so here’s my recording.

It’s probably a 9/10, with a very focused sound. The vocal is up-front & defined, except for Sultans Of Swing where I think the mic volume wasn’t raised to accommodate the increased volume of the band.

The guitar rings through as clear as a bell & the ambience of the venue adds a richness to the overall sound, without washing out the sound too much. I’m very pleased with it & hope you will be too.

The Joe Brown tracks are a nice addition & it was good to see him appear as a surprise guest. Funnily enough, I’ve seen Mark & Joe play Donegan’s Gone twice at the Albert Hall (1st time was at the Lonnie Tribute Concert in 2004).
I’ll also be at Joe’s show at the RAH in September at which Mark will be a guest, and no doubt they’ll play it again!

rare live performances and other strangeness
produced by Jim Shoes and the Barkin’ Dogs

Download: FLAC/MP3

This is a disc of unusual, unique or otherwise rare live performances. It takes quite a lot of trading to hear all these odd tracks, so I thought a compilation might be in order. This is by no means a collection of the “definitive” versions of these performances, although many of them are appearing here in improved versions from what normally circulates. It’s a mixed bag, in any case, but sound quality was not the deciding factor, as you will see…
This is an excellent disc for those who are not the ‘hard core’ collectors, although some of this will interest you types as well.

1) Green is the Colour [3:20]

2) Careful With That Pipe Wrench, Larry [3:19]
from BBC Night Ride, May, 12, 1969
Ok, now what the hell is this doing on a “rareties” disc? Well, these tracks are often missing and/or replaced with the 1970 versions on many a RoIO, even some of the ‘definitive’ BBC collections These tracks are almost as rare as the 1970 ‘Fat Old Sun’ broadcast found on Harvested’s ‘Mooed Music’. These have the bird sounds, and ‘careful’ isn’t quite a normal version (ergo, my not-so-normal title). I would be interested to know if anyone has these tracks in pristine quality, as these are not ideal. [VG]

3) Main Theme from ‘More’ [10:25]
Town Hall, Birmingham, Feb. 11, 1970
It’s a cryin’ shame this wasn’t played “more” often. some digital tinkering happened here to squeeze what could be squeezed out of this. I think it sounds better than the ususal versions, but it’s still not great. The performance, however, is incredible. This infact may be nick mason’s finest moment. flamboyant, yet always tasteful.

4) Moonhead [7:39]

5) The Pict Rant [3:50]
Ernst-Merke Halle, Hamburg, Nov. 14, 1970
A rare complete performance of Moonhead (aka ‘Corrosion’), followed by one of Roger’s best and most, um, vigorous, ‘Pict Rants’. This comes from a clone of the master tape, and sounds better than the ‘Grooving With a Pict’ RoIO of this show. [EX-]

Hamburg 1970 (DFA-013) CD-R

6) Home Again [1:45]

7) Mortality [3:30]
The Dome, Brighton, Jan. 20, 1972
The only instrumental performance of ‘Home Again’ (aka ‘Breathe reprise’) along with the ‘preacher tape’ organ noodling. Dave shows off with the voxbox guitar thing. I like this version quite a bit. Mortality ends about a minute earlier than on the source tape, because a loud and noise kicks in, as their PA system started to fail. An editorial decision was made to remove this unpleasantness from this release. It’s just a bit more of the same organ fluff and sound effects, so it’s not like there is anything ‘important’ compromised. [EX]

8) Have a Cigar [5:07]
Knebworth Festival, UK, July 5, 1975
The last show of the 1975 tour, and the only live version with Roy Harper. After hearing this, you’ll be grateful there’s only one. Sound quality is not so hot, and the performance, is, well, tired. I’m sorry this turkey is in here, but hey. [VG-]

9) Pigs on the Wing pt.2 [3:39]
Olympic Stadium, Montreal, July 6, 1977
Roger shares some love with the audience. Later in the show he had more to share. This comes from a better source than ‘Azimuth Coordinator’, and one might be inclined to speculate that this is but a taste of things to come. Indeed. Nice solo from Snowy White. [EX+]

Fireworks Show in the Canadian Walls CD-R

10) The Last Few Bricks pt.2 [8:16]
LA Arena, Los Angeles, Feb. 7, 1980
I could write a book on this ‘song’, but i won’t. This is the last piece of new music from the 4-man lineup, the extra jam played on the first night of the Wall tour. It’s a variation on an instrumental version of breathe (hmm, sound familiar?), was probably ‘written’ by dave gilmour, as he was the ‘music director’ for the shows, and i’ll bet it was rehearsed once or twice. Often assumed to be a one-time improv jam to cover a lag in the stage show, it was infact played TWICE… [EX]

11) The Last Few Bricks pt.2 [3:16]
LA Arena, Los Angeles, Feb. 8, 1980
…and this is the other performance. It’s a different arrangement, and about half as long as the night before. A true gem; performance-wise, I like this one better. but the sound quality is not as nice as the other. I didn’t do the vinyl ‘remastering’ on this one, and there is too much noise reduction for my taste. [VG]

12) Celestial Voices [9:13]
Royal Albert Hall, June 26, 1969
The only live performance of this with a choir and orchestra. 9 minutes long, this whopper originates from a better source than what usually circulates of this show. [VG]

13) Brain Damage/Lunar Eclipse (RoIO Remix 2000) [5:30]
Studio and Guild Hall, Portsmouth Jan 21, 1972
How’s THAT for a tacky title? This is a combination of three oddities: The quadraphonic mixdown of Brain Damage from “Works”, the guitar solos shown in the studio excepts of the Live at Pompeii movie, and the first performance of “Eclipse” (the song) at Portsmouth. Except, that it ain’t quite a song yet, as you will hear. My edits are basically passable, but this is in NO WAY to be considered a rare studio outtake. I (ME) made this, for your amusement only.

THE JF BACKSTORY
JEMS loves a vintage taper series and we’re pleased to offer another one, this time from the archive of our friend JF, who taped in and around Southern California in the ’70s and later resumed taping in Boston in the ’80s. He frequented smaller venues, like the Troubadour and the Roxy, leaving arenas to others and leaning more towards the folksier, jazzier and eclectic sides of rock.

JF was also an active trader at the time and this recording is one of the uncirculated or under-circulated gems from the early ’70s that are also in JF’s archive. Installment 11 is what we believe to be a previously uncirculated audience pull Paul Simon’s 1973 solo tour stop at the legendary Nassau Coliseum. For the era and given that much of the show is solo acoustic, it offers a listenable if slightly distant ìyou are thereî mono recording. Samples provided.

We shared the recording with frogster who sent some additional insights on the performance:

“Urubamba was the band formed on request by Paul Simon to Joerge Milchberg to reactivate the ‘Los Incas’ for his Live Rhymin’ tour 1973/1974.

They played as a back-up on many songs like ‘Duncan’, ‘The Boxer’, ‘El Condor Pasa’, etc. Urubamba did not appear on any Paul Simon recording, but their former band ‘Los Incas’ recorded ¥El condor pasa¥ (Bridge) and ¥Duncan’ (Paul Simon) with him.

The band can be heard in their 1973 formation on the Live Rhymin’ album released a year later. The band itself does not exist anymore, but their members are all very active today.

The date and venue are verified on the Paul Simon’s site: http://www.paul-simon.info/PHP/showreview.php?id_concert=443 albeit different setlist.

Some cuts here and there, but all the songs are complete; what is cut are the chants or the audience between songs. Unfortunately, there’s no way to tell if any song is missing between the cuts, as the setlist of this recording is 20 songs and the standard setlist on the tour, according to the Paul Simon’s site, was of 20+ songs.”

Taking this one over the finish line on JEMS’ behalf is the aforementioned frogster, who came to our attention through many excellent posts and reposts of late, including a fine comp of early Simon & Garfunkel. Thanks to him for taking it the last mile and to glasnostrd19 who suggested we connect with frogster. Big ups also to Tapeboy who handled the pitch correction as he so often does.

But our heartiest thanks goes to JF, who reached out on DIME (you could be next!) and offered us his archive, which had been sitting in boxes, 6000 miles away from where he lives today, for 20+ years. Like so many early tapers, he had great stories to tell and the memories flooded back as we sorted through tapes. We are pleased to be able to bring his work to all of you. Please let him know through your comments that you are, too.

BK for JEMS
