contrast clause
Same as:
but processed with Soundforge + Waves (BIAS) “Z-noise” noise reduction plug-in to remove excessive tape hiss

Listening to the first track, I noticed the long hissy (silent) leader before the first song faded in and figured that this baseline noise would be easy to remove with a good noise reduction plugin as there was so much isolated tape hiss to sample. The effect is subtle but definitely an improvement. I didn’t get too crazy as I really hate squelched higher frequencies due to over-aggressive noise reduction.

Queen – Cologne, Germany (02/01/79)

Cologne, Germany
February 1, 1979

Download FLAC: Amazon Drive

This is the complete Cologne 79 show, something which collectors have been after for ages. It has always come out in bits and pieces, but always the same few songs were missing. Here it is, complete, and probably in the best quality we’ll ever get for it.

There are two audience sources. One has popped up on various LP and CD bootlegs over the years, and there is an uncut tape from this source (we’ll call this uncut one “source A”). The uncut tape is actually a bit worse quality than the best LP source. So, I have taken about 2/3 of the show from that LP source, and It’s Late, BoRhap, TYMD, SHA, WWRY, WATC, and GSTQ from the uncut tape. A second audience source (of inferior quality, which we’ll call “source B”) was used to fill in source A’s missing parts during Dreamers Ball and WATC.

Overall, the quality is close to excellent, but it fluctuates now and then, as indicated above. The edits are as smooth as possible. Also, I listened to the show carefully, and removed all of the vinyl ticks, and any other flaws in the sound. And of course they all play at the same tape speed/pitch.

Here’s the setlist. All are from the best possible LP source unless otherwise indicated:

Disc 1:
We Will Rock You (fast)
Let Me Entertain You
Somebody To Love
If You Can’t Beat Them
Death On Two Legs
Killer Queen
Bicycle Race
I’m In Love With My Car
Get Down, Make Love
You’re My Best Friend
Now I’m Here
Don’t Stop Me Now
Spread Your Wings
Dreamers Ball (part from source B)

Disc 2:
Love Of My Life
It’s Late
Brighton Rock
Keep Yourself Alive
Bohemian Rhapsody (source A)
Tie Your Mother Down (source A)
Sheer Heart Attack (source A)
We Will Rock You (source A)
Are The Champions (source A completed with source B)
God Save The Queen

Distribute these files only if they are left completely unaltered. As always with my shares, if I see a complete Cologne 79 made available here or elsewhere in mp3 or any other lossy format, I will never share another thing here again.

some site said this one contains only March 1st.
but it’s definitely guess wrong.
I compared audience recording of the Feb 28 and March 1st with this.
at least, without doubt, this is 3 nights compilation.
but track order is just the same that March 1st show (though Typical medley, Love Of My Life, ’39, It’s Late, Brighton Rock, Keep Yourself Alive and usual 2nd encore is cut)

  1. Thunderbolt And Lightning (intro)
  2. We Will Rock You (fast)

  4. Somebody To Love
  5. Fat Bottomed Girls
  6. You’re My Best Friend

-This audience recording is marginal at best, but does reproduce a super show (not just because it was my first Dead show!) that should be of interest to collectors.
-The recording has undergone some DSP that includes EQ and NR (I found a
nice piece of hiss to formulate a decent sample). Even though its still hissy, it was very hissy before the NR.
-Most of the tracks in Set 2 are cut at their end.
-The show occurred in the dead cold of Mid-West winter, and started late as the crowd waited over an hour outside for the doors to open. To compensate, the Dead played a lively and energetic show–“The winter was so hard and cold”. Donna was absent.
-The show occurred in the Main Theatre of the Masonic Temple, one of the finest public halls in the United States, having a seating capacity of about 4,500 that produced a very intimate contact between audience and stage. The decorative treatment of the auditorium has considerable detail adapted from the Venetian Gothic, and the general tone is gold which has been enlivened with red and blue to produce a quiet richness of color seldom attempted in this type of work. A great deal of careful
study was given to the acoustical treatment of this room which has produced an auditorium where the hearing qualities are perfect from every seat. This is the only time the Grateful Dead played this theatre.
