06. Lonesome And A Long// Way From Home [21:#54] [0:55]

– There are at least three sources in circulation for this show, none of them quite complete. Eldon Porray’s excellent audience tape (usually said to be Nak 700s, but it’s too early for those mics) is all of set I and Midnight Moonlight from set II. The sbd has cuts in Knockin’ and Lonesome and is missing Love in the Afternoon and all but the last 20 second of Tore Up. Menke’s master is the most complete, with everything up to 17:30 of Lonesome, a few starts of songs clipped. I decided to put together this composite using the soundboard as the basic recording. I had hoped that the three sources could be combined to provide the whole show, but unfortunately the sbd and Menke’s master do
not overlap so as to cover the whole missing portion of Lonesome. Menke’s tape (I am not sure about the equipment he was using) supplies 9:38-9:49 of Knockin’, all of Tore Up and Love in the Afternoon, and 13:28-17:40 of Lonesome.
– d2t06 LAALWFH splice @ 17:40, unknown amount missing.

Thanks to David Minches for the source CDs!

*-The PA cut out on the middle of Forever Young, hence the low levels. They played the remainder of the song with the only audible sound being from stage monitors and amps. They then took a ~15min technical break and fixed things, before resuming with Stop That Train.

This version should be compared to the previously circulating
version to be understood. This one is slightly more complete
(the two takes of Goodnight Irene, here laid out at the start
of disc two, are absent from the other version). It also has
slightly clearer lineage, at least in terms of the analog-to-
digital transfer (John Kahn’s cassette to Ryan Shriver’s DAT).

In terms of sound quality, it seems a bit of a toss-up. The
other version had some noise reduction and other work done in
Sound Forge, and actually seems to have considerably more high
end than this version, which is considerably flatter and bassier.

Lineage: The person who I traded with to get this show only knows the following: he thinks it’s a SBD>CAS (a few gens)>SoundForge>CDRWIN.

I was delighted with the sound quality considering the dodgy lineage. This rehearsal is a wonderful glimpse into the genius of New Orleans piano king James Booker, bringing a new (Orleans) dimension to the JGB sound.
