(TomP) Remaster

Ex Stereo Audience Recording
Lineage: Screamer Bootleg CD > WAV > FLAC

Changes Made (Nero 7):

Phase correction of -0.12 msec
– Corrects balance offset of voices
– Clearer sound
Cross-mixed channels (96:4)
– More bass and body to the sound
– Individual harmonising voices now clearly / separately audible
– Neil’s guitar and voice clearer and more to the foreground
Fixed 200+ volume fluctuations in all the acoustic tracks
Reduced the applause volume by -2dB on all acoustic tracks
Increased music volume on all acoustic tracks by +2dB
Reduced left channel by 10% on electric disks to centre stereo image
Evened the different volume levels on different tracks

Quality: Got to be A++

IMHO this is possibly the best NY / CH ever !! The original boot wasn’t well edited, but
with the changes above, it is now truly great. Neil’s guitar is better recorded and more
to the foreground than most so if you like that…

…Don’t miss it !!

From the original uploader:
The mix on this puppy is excellent! It is not a monitor mix but the actual house mix so all instruments are present and in full stereo. The clarity of the recording is remarkable: you can hear the band’s footsteps as they first walk on stage as well as onstage patter between the musicians.

All of Lucinda’s song intros have been given their own track ID’s so that they may be skipped over during playback or completely edited out when burning to CD.
Another Guy Smiley Production with unbridled help from SteelysBro.

From me:

This sickness has knocked me flatter than expected. Me and my daughter have been trading off stomach bugs and flu viruses for two weeks now. I think we’re finally over that but yesterday I came back with a killer cold. Recovery is in my sites, but darn if it isn’t still a few days away. On top of that there are parental visits both here and a far so, plus we just found out the house we’re renting sold so we have to move soon. All of that’s more than you guys need to know but it is to say we’re still weeks away from me posting in any sort of regular fashion.

And of course I’m still figuring out what site to use. I like the way Rapidgator runs for the most part except it seems to be having trouble with multiple uploads at once. It says it can handle them and allows me to try but inevitably one or more get hung up in the process and I have to go back and try again.¬† Which is a hassle.¬† I looked at Zippyshare but they have a 200 mb limit which isn’t disastrous, but it is annoying having to break the files up every time.¬† I’ll give it a whirl sometime though and if everything else works right I may just have to suck it up.

Someone mentioned Hotfile and if my¬† memory serves they are alright but it seems like they are a hassle in terms of downloading as a freeloader.¬† Don’t they make you wait awhile between downloads and do silly things like type in those goofy letters to prove your human and the like?¬† That crap drives me crazy as a downloader.¬† Anyways keep bearing with me.¬† Hopefully we’ll get back into the swing of things sometime relatively soon.

Summary of editing:
Rob’s decode was masterful and made my job easy. Nothing was done to the sound of the DBX decoded material. Just cleaned up a few issues and made AUD patches.
-Cut after Peggy-O cleaned up – Aud source cut there also so no patch available…
-Over the top guitar chord at start of Half-Step toned down a bit to save ears…
-Two small gliches in Half-Step repaired.
-Cut in Tuning after Tennessee Jed patched with AUD source.
-Two small pops in Music corrected.
-Tuning at start of Set Two patched from AUD source.
-Small glich in Estimated repaired
-Cut in Tuning after Estimated patched with AUD source.
-Pop in Wharf Rat corrected.
-Cut in Around and Around patched with AUD source.
-Cut in Crowd before encore patched from AUD source.
-About 10 bad pops removed from US Blues and it was Equalized
and gain adjusted to better match up with the rest.
-All AUD patches were sonically adjusted to better match up and cross-faded
in to prevent a jarring change.

From the original uploader:

The 1st year I was recording shows, one of my favorite performers to see inconcert was McCoy Tyner. Having seen him at Paul’s Mall the 1st time in springof 77, I liked it enough to see him in Vermont that summer. Another fine show,and this would make 3. I think this is the best recording of those 3, althoughthey’re all quite enjoyable and fairly comparable in quality. I think I mayhave used an external mike for this show, the presence is good and consistentthroughout this delightful 2 1/2 hr. plus show.

Tyner has always brought along good drummers for his tours, this one went on to tour with John McLaughlin in the One Truth Band after this tour. McCoy is one of those guys who likes to play,and play, and play. He is one of the best at it and sustains an incredible energyover a long time. None of his music of this era is easy to play, but it’s veryeasy to listen to.

The 1970’s were a time of tremendous abundance for really nice McCoy Tyner music and he was one of my alltime favorite concert performers¬†in the mid and late 70’s. He’s still very good, always been, although I haven’t¬†seen him in years. Regrettably, John Coltrane was not around very long to share¬†his great talents, but McCoy has been around seemingly forever and proven himself¬†to be one of the very best jazz musicians of his time, and one of the most enduring,¬†so let’s hope there’s still lots more left to Tyner’s time of playing his fine music.

Some of McCoy’s best releases (to my ears) I can recommend are Sama Layuca, Focal¬†Point, and Fly with the Wind. I’m sure there are many more too. (Then there’s John¬†Coltrane, but I missed the boat on him completely in concert. My Favorite Things and¬†A Love Supreme are supreme, and both have McCoy’s great piano).

There was a nice live¬†McCoy album recorded in San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall on March 17 and 18,¬†including some of these songs. It is called The Greeting. Inner Voices is also quite¬†good. one song from it is played here (track 5).Whenever he played in Boston in the late 70’s era it was for 3 or 4 nights at theJazz Workshop or next door Paul’s Mall and at least one run in 1979 at Lulu White’s¬†Jazz and Supper club. his music was always vibrant and full of energy, and he always¬†had a fine accompanying band in tow. this show is in a much smaller venue than the¬†live album was recorded in. Paul’s Mall could only hold about 350 people if packed¬†like a sardine can, and it usually was when McCoy was playing there.
