Here’s a nice one from the ’77 Foreign Affairs – tour.

Actually, this is a good soundboard-direct-to-tape recording, but the tape was played quite often before transferred to CD, so the quality went “way down in the hole” over the years. After all, it’s still nice to listen to, I would give it a B+.
There are some severe tape problems at the beginning of track one, but it’s getting better after a few minutes. If you find it too disturbing, you might flip on to the second song…

I’ve selected this show for two main reasons:

  • rare performance of “Potter’s Field” ( track 14 )
  • funny things happen in “Cupid” ( track 12 ) : Tom started to sing this quiet song with guitar accompaniment, stopped after one minute and complains about the noisy audience….saying something like: ” Shut up back there for christ sake, I’m trying to sing a goddamn song ! These people are trying to listen, you farmers back there making all that … I mean, for christ sake….sounds like a farm workers convention back there … I know… I remember my first beer and everything, I get a little rowdy too ! …”
    After that, he didn’t finish the song but starts with “Heart Of Saturday Night”.


There is also an introduction to a local stripper named “Sherry Love” in “Pasties & A G-String” ( track 8 ); unfortunatly, this is not a video ! ;-))
According to drummer Chip White, tour manager John Forscha hired a stripper lady on Toms birthday show in dec.76 to enter the stage in the middle of the song. After that night, they hired a stripper in every town for the rest of the tour.

I did very little rework on the sound, just a little limiter and normalization, no noise or hiss reduction…I also have cut out a short segment at the beginning of track 15; there was a very loud and strange noise for about two seconds of no music.

Goody’s notes:
This is somewhat of an improvement over the original files which had more severe left and right channel fading in and out than what you’ll now find. Centering these channels served to bring much of that panning together. Unfortunately there’s still lots of evident damage and dropouts, especially in the beginning of the show, as described in Pascal’s original notes. I believe the vocals are now more distinct and centered and more easily understood. Please do stick with it. 🙂
I also found the files I received to be a bit slow/flat. The Speed/Pitch is now adjusted correctly.

Happyrudolf’s comment :

First of all thank you very much to my good friend Goody for his great work. :o) The difference between the original upload and this version is amazing.:o)

Also thank you very much to the one of the great pioneers within the Tom Waits community The Waitswatcher Pascal for sharing the show a long time ago.:o)

Goody points out that you should be aware of the various song references in the intro to Jitterbug Boy for the 1st minute or so of that tune.

Enjoy. :o)

This is a classic show. Tom gets heckled by a woman during the show
and, that alone makes it classic. BUT, this is also a GREAT performance
amazing version of ‘Burma Shave’. Sound is pretty good B+ it is a FM

So….Im not great with all the technical stuff I’m afraid.
This is from an old tape I got around 1979. I copied the tape back then, and now I’ve bumped it to my PC and given it a bit of a tidy in Goldwave.
The tape has “Excuse Me” cutting out about 20 secs before the end to have it picked up again at the start of the second side. I’ve tried my best to cut these two tracks together.There’s also a little cut after Solisbury Hill between tracks.
Sorry for lack of info – I’ll tell you a story instead.

Riiiiight back when I first started getting interested in bootlegs I was working in someplace called a “record shop” that made good business selling “vinyl”.
If you don’t understand that last bit – ask your dad about it. Anyway, I was only 13/14 and working with 2 or 3 great guys, older than me, all into different types of music.
Boots were far more “deviant” and hard come by in those days…and more exciting I guess. I approached my wiser colleague John “Sniff” S-son one day and asked if he had any “bootleg recordings” he might like to …just give to me…for free!!…to make copies of!!
This sort of request , back then, would usually be met with the arched eyebrow and masonic bootleg stare…or some demand for quite a lot of money. Ten quid even.
To my surprise John showed up the next next week with a bag of tapes for me!
These were probably some of the first ever bootlegs I heard and, as I’m sure is the same with you all, I listened to them so much I know every snort and cough!
Feelgood Story #2

John was a massive PG , and Genesis , fan. He told me this story about going to see Gabriel on his Gabriel III – Intruder – whatever tour.
He and his friends travelled all the way down from Leeds to the Hammy Odeon, London, to see a show on the tour.
Getting there mid afternoon they just parked themselves on some benches near the hall to wait for the evening ( probably in the days when British pubs shut in the afternoons -remember that!)
To their disbelief who should walk by but Mr Peter Gabriel himself! They trotted over to chat to him and get their heads signed and stuff and he said “Fck off kids – I only do this for the money and I don’t give a fck about the world….or STing…or Bono even!!”
………oops….wrong story…he said – “go round the back door and I’ll let you in”. So , incredulous, thats what they did. They waited…and they waited….obviously it was all a bit of bravado on Pete’s part and he’d forgotten them …and then a head pops out of a door – not just any head – PG’s!!

“Pssst! this way!!!!!” And they follow him into the hall.

Well, for those who saw that tour, and I’m not one and I’m jealous, it was the one where they used torches a lot – coming through the audience at the start with flashlights. My friend got to sit in the front row in and empty Hammersmith Odeon while the band ran through a full dress rehearsa shining spots in their faces and generally making them feel like the luckiest kids on earth!!

Peter Gabriel – he’s one of the god guys.

No idea what generation it is, but it’s pretty listenable, please enjoy PG at his best!

I was given the whole of Gabriel collection on tapes from the good friend MBT the other day. He used to be an avid Gabriel
collector back in the 80¥s but he had also attended many concerts in the Paris area even before, like for example one of
the Olympia gigs from September 1980 where he could even get Gabriel¥s tambourine which he used to throw in the air at the
end of Solsbury Hill.

A week ago, I was at his place and we were planning to go and eat a nice indian restaurant. We drove with my car in the
outskirts of Paris. I had asked him to provide me with a few tapes from his collection to transfer. But when we came back from
the restaurant, he simply handed over to me his whole collection (mostly covering the 1977-1994 period asking me to look at
it and transfer those tapes I would find interesting.

WOW! Another monster task to do. I obviously started from the first tour and found many gems, in particular from the french tour.
MBT used to be an active trader with other fellow french traders, so I guess that his collection from there could be something
of interest. Plus he used to record on the radio any sort of interviews or special about Gabriel so I do not doubt that I will
find some treasures.

I do not know if we can label this one as “treasure” but I never saw this one circulating and, despite the quite poor quality,
this is a nice capture of PG¥s first tour. Possibly of the the best performances musicwise by the band. You can clearly hear
the audience on fire keep asking for encores. At the end four encores were played that night. Peter addresses the audience in
french and greets Paris, so there is no doubt this comes from the Olympia which, by the way, is a rather shitty venue to record
shows despite being of the temples of rock music in Paris.

Full set including Animal Magic and one Genesis encores which was not played that often during that leg of the tour.
Somehow for completists only, but aren¥t we all completists here at The Movement???

From Pigland East – This tape is complete and with only one minor
cut–a very brief tape flip at 44:03 into the second set, which
indicates the taper was using a 90 minute cassette. As usual, FRP strives
to bring you the best possible sound without destroying the archival value
of the source tape by attempting a heavy remastering job.

The audience claps after the 3rd verse during ‘Pigs (3DO)’ and Roger did
not squeal a number. The audience is generally very quiet and respectful,
which is a refreshing change from the standard audience recording of this
tour. Not a single firework to be heard! David performs an incredible jam
during ‘SOYCD (Pts. 6-9)’. This is truly a recording of a band playing at
its peak.

From Pigland West – I’m listening to the show again. What strikes
me the most is the amazing clarity of the recording and the polite and
obviously captivated audience. They are like a Japanese audience–quiet
when they should be and clapping/cheering where appropriate. Hard to believe
they are French (just kidding Pigland Europe!). The performance, I think,
is rather uninspired but certainly an excellent and competent one. A bit
mechanical, maybe. Does David mess up the words in one of the songs?
