======

A very good audience tape, with the only problem being the taper’s girlfriend shouting and screaming A LOT.
She screams almost all the time through ’10th Avenue’ but other than that, I can’t say it bothers that much –
I’d say it pissed me off the most when she keeps screaming during the quiet parts of Jungleland.
I don’t usually get any recordings with a lot of screaming/shouting near taper, but on this show the good sound makes up for it enough.

Thanks a lot to mr. Freezer for taping the show and sharing this gem.

Little editing note: Reduced volume during some screaming parts between songs. One of the great performances of Sandy.

======

Taper Notes:

I had a girlfriend who wanted to “sing” along all night. And she is LOUD and off-key and out of time
(you’ll love the first few songs in set 2…….) IF I had pulled that whistle out, she’d have
tooted it all night, her singing is bad enough….but it can be ignored IF you’re really a Boss fan….
(I was, this was my 7th show since 1975….in 1976 I had seat ! in row A and he jumped off the
stage in front of me while I was taping, looked at me, laughed and ran out into the audience……)
But as regards my then-girlfriend:
You’ll thrill to her duet with Bruce on Hungry Heart……
You’ll marvel at her version of Sherry Darlin’…..
You’ll be shaking your head as she joins in on the choruses of Fire….
You’ll be pissed off at me for not telling her to shut up…
But, hey, I was “in love” … she was so cute…..but she kept quiet through other shows, bands
like Ramones, Squeeze, John Cale, The Who, Snakefinger……I figured I owed her a night to get
sloppy drunk and sing and dance and howl at a concert…..Now, you too will get a chance to enjoy
her 25 years after the fact……Freezer

JEMS is pleased to present a previously uncirculated and complete master recording of the second night of Toronto ’81. It’s also the second show from the work of the taper(s) mackeck.

d.j.mackeck reached out earlier this year to report that his dad had recorded several Bruce shows between 1978 and 1984 in their hometown of Toronto, as well as cities within spitting distance like Detroit and Buffalo. He was kind enough to ship an initial batch of three masters, from which we made fresh transfers here at JEMS South.

The shows were recorded on a small portable recorder with built-in mic (likely a Toshiba or Sony, but memories have faded) in mono. As with the Buffalo ’80 recording, mackeck manages to avoid most audience chatter or noise, yielding a recording that is clear, relatively close, consistent and highly listenable. It only needed two small patches as noted above.

The only material flaw in this new Toronto recording was again micro gaps, like those found on the Buffalo master, only this time there were even more of them. In 50-60 random spots across the three hours, the recorder cuts out momentarily leaving an audible gap.

On the Toronto recording, the micro gaps are all well under a second in length, though absolutely noticeable. But happily for us, it isn’t 1981 but 2013 and audio technology has come a long way. Using iZotope RX and its magical “Spectral Repair” plug in, JEMS was able to repair the gaps in a manner that should make most of them inaudible to all but the most committed and headphone-wearing trainspotter. It was a more challenging tape to repair than Buffalo, but the end result is still quite remarkable. Samples provided.

As for the show itself, the second night of Toronto is obviously not nearly as well known as the first, for which there is an extant 90 minute soundboard recording (we will be doing mackeck’s 1/20/81 recording next). But like a lot of second nights, it is probably the more spirited performance. These would prove to be the fading days for some River classics, as this would be one of the last ten outings for “The Price You Pay” and “Fade Away,” both of which are sublime here, as are other tour stalwarts, “Stolen Car” and “Wreck on the Highway.” This early in ’81 it is still a classic River tour show, just one you haven’t heard very often.

To take this one the last mile and provide the patching is our comrade and the unchallenged king of multiple source recordings, MJK5510. Thanks to him for final finishing and prepping.

Big big thanks to d.j. mackeck and his dad for loaning JEMS their masters and recording the show in the first place.

Thank you, well I hope we sound better out there, than we sound up here. (before Girl Of The North Country)

Thank you. The man on keyboards is gonna sing one now. His name is Willie Smith. He’s gonna sing a song called Saved By The Grace Of Your Love. If I can get him to sing one. Can I get you to sing one? Come on! Oh, he’s agreed to do it.

All right, thank you. Talking about love, here’s a song, another song about love, called Watered-Down Love. You don’t want a love that’s pure you wanna drown, love you want a watered-down Love. One, two, three, four.

Thank you, on the keyboards tonight, Willie Smith. On guitars, Fred Tackett and Steve Ripley. All right, over there on the left is Carolyn Dennis. Standing next to her is Madelyn Quebec. Then comes Regina McCreary. And Clydie King. Well Well, I hope that we

drummer. On the drums tonight, Jim Keltner. On the bass guitar, the last of the best, Tim Drummond. Boom boom boom, thank you. (at the end of In The Garden)

From the original uploader:
I can not say with absolute certainty that this is sourced from the same aud. recording as LB-350. What I can say tell you is this (unlike the LB-350) does not contain the opening numbers by the backup singers. The sound is excellent and I am thinking it probably is
from the same source recording but I do not have a copy of LB-350 here to do a comparison.
