Shows of the Day: May 30, 2023

Happy Jerry Wednesday to everybody. I hope you enjoy it.

I also hope some of you have been enjoying my old adventures in France. It is funny to me because I haven’t read those old posts since I wrote them over 18 years ago. Some posts bring up wonderful memories. Other posts I don’t remember at all.

Reading them now, with many more years under my belt, and a whole lot more world-traveling experience, I sound very young, very naive, and I seem to complain a lot. At the time I didn’t feel like I was really experiencing culture shock, but looking back I can see that I clearly was. I think back then I thought culture shock was something much more overwhelming – something that would bring me to tears every day or keep me curled up under the covers. But that isn’t me. I always get out of bed and do my best to plow ahead.

But reading these old posts I can see how I was being overwhelmed almost every day by all the differences in our cultures. Certainly, the language barrier was difficult.

I’m almost embarrassed by some of the posts. But I also realize that I wasn’t writing to anyone reading this now. I was writing to a handful of friends and family members. I was writing in a familiar way to people I knew. I was often trying to be funny and sarcastic, which comes off to me now as whiny and annoying.

Anyway, I do hope you are enjoying the posts, even if I do sound like a dumb little kid lost in the big world of baguettes.

CD: Rare Live Records RLR 88665

This item was recorded for a December 25, 1957 television broadcast from ORTF, Au clair de la lune. Besides Miles Davis, the 20-minute show featured at least four other artists, including Juliette GrÈco. There are photographs in the ORTF archives (two of which are published in the December 2009 issue of Jazz Magazine) in which the Davis/Urtreger group is playing in front of television cameras, in the midst of a fake lunar landscape: Davis, Michelot, and Clarke in one crater, Urtreger and Wilen in another. These photos are dated December 7, 1957, so this may be the recording date. Thanks to Pascal Rozat for sharing with me the results of his research in the ORTF archives.

Included here twice, once in original form I received it, once remastered as best I could.

4 – Walkin’ (R. Carpenter) 7:26
5 – No Moe (S. Rollins) 7:20
6 – ‘Round Midnight (T. Monk) 5:12

Workflow: Audacity – set up track markers, adjusted speed. Right hand channel was 9 samples ahead of left. Removed these and suddenly a more balanced mono sound appeared!

1,2 – removed whistle at 3300Hz
4 – lowered whistle at 5900Hz
5 – reduced 3110Hz buzz
6 – reduced whsitle at 3020Hz and 6000Hz

RX3: Left hand volume down 4db on all but final track.
Worked through removing whistle slightly more in areas, on track one in particular.
Listened through and declicked/crackled where appropriate. Many are left intact as they’re either not intrusive or too much a part of the music to remove.

Two digital artefacts were found and removed.

Levels double checked – Round Midnight brought into line with other tracks (was louder). Exported as individual flacs from Audacity.

Taped by: ZEF

Remastering notes (from MOB):

The rough recording was already very good, but needed some restoration and cleaning before
being spread worldwide. Indeed, due to the age of the mastertape, a lot of crackles,
tape warble and level fluctuations were present on the rough digital transfer.
These have been manually cleaned as much as possible. Also, the rough version had
a lot of clipping that needed to be corrected. Some frequencies with musical content
were buried in the original transfer, therefore a slight EQ was applied in order
to bring clarity to the recording. There were some abrupt cuts on the mastertape
(two cuts during Breathe, one cut at the beginning of Us And Them and one cut
in the middle of OOTD, not to mention numerous “pause” operations by the taper
during some tunings and applause between songs).
These have been restored by editing, so that the recording is now presented
in a continuous way, with smooth transitions.

Notes by PE:

Almost like David Vincent, it all started with a torrent which had attracted my attention :
Gong 1973-06-19, a gig at Roger Salengro’s salle – Lille, France, chez les ch’tis.

Contact was made with the seeder (Sous-Marin) who turned out to be the taper of this show.
Sewing up, and after a few blow-jobs I learned that he had recorded the Campus radio show
AM original broadcast (1970) : Pink Floyd 1970-01-23 at the ThÈ‚tre des Champs ElysÈes.
I therefore encouraged him to torrent this recording.
Then, on his website, I saw a date which intrigued me : Pink Floyd 1972-07-12,Lille.
…. Lille? le pays des ch’tis úuf course ! but as far as I knew no recording
of this particular gig were reported !…

With this new contact we discussed via emails until I learned that the taper (named ZEF)
actually taped this gig and that SousMarin owns a mp3/128Kbits recording of this show.
Then began the quest for the “lossless” source of this recording…
Days passing, a lot of blow-jobs again and weeks later, an email just arrived,
ZEF replied to Sous-Marin :

I had a small tape recorder, the later Telefunken (R.I.P blessed tape recorder)
connected to an external microphone.
I digitalized the tape with Audacity (version 1.2.6) using default settings.
Audacity detected my recording as being in mono. I did not correct the file
or apply any filters. This was a “rough” transfer direct from tape to HD.

Bingo! we finally got it:)

Dedicated to all the good people in Yeeshkul, IFWT & PRS hubs.
I really want to thanks all the guys behind this release :

MOB – for the mastering of this show,
Breathe – for his general help, and the use of IFWT label for this release.
Alex – for helping in translations,
Sous-Marin (aka AndPh.) – for grabbing the source
Raymond Dzarek (aka PhD.) – for discovering 2 years back that a recording exist!
Philippe R., – for permission to use the ticket scan.
don’t forget to see his website, fool of goodies at:

…and the last, but not the least, the taper ZEF (aka AndP.)!


Now, time to seed IFWT-CDR-035
Thanks all
