comments:
This seems to be the complete show except for a few seconds at beginning of
track 9 for a tape flip. (the 2 other flips were between songs). I have almost
never listened to this concert, because they have no drummer in this band, and
because the original master had some flaws in it from mike connection problem.
Fortunately almost all of that is between songs, after some remastering and
patching of one side to the other in some very brief sections, this is now a
very enjoyable quality recording. It is all stereo except 1 track, and all is
from the original master tapes. The quality is pretty good, although there are
a few inconsistencies, some of the tracks sound more stereo than others, not
reaal sure why, but it is from Nightstage, which has good sound. There is no
duplication of songs in these 2 sets. More like one full length Hamill show,
up close and intimate. Nightstage was a good place to hear music like this.

Peter Hammill 1984-08-19 Wahll Amphitheater, Tel Aviv, Israel (T-221)

This release is sourced from cassette tapes that I got in trade many years ago from a fellow taper / trader in Israel.  It's a 1st generation audience recording.  There are two messed up places each lasting a few seconds.  One during Flight and one during Stranger Still.  Sounds like crinkeled tape on the original tape since mine is a 1st generation tape and it's not crinkeled.

This release is sourced from cassette tapes that I got in trade many years ago from a fellow taper / trader in Israel.  It's a 1st generation audience recording.  The sound quality of this show declines starting with the song Sign.  That is where the tape flip occured and that's where some overload distortion begins.  It's still and enjoyable show.

Partial notes from the T release: This release is sourced from cassette tapes that I got in trade many years ago from a fellow taper / trader in Israel.  It's a 1st generation audience recording.  Something intresting about this audience is that when someone talked or started to make noise during a song, many people would go shhhhhhhhh.

'Again' and 'The Habit Of The Broken Heart' as the last two songs performed.  These songs, however, are not on my recording.

This sound quality of this early show is inferior to that of the late show. There's a fair amount of hiss present as well.  I've attempted to decrease some of the hiss by decreasing the treble slightly. A better sounding lower generation source is out there somewhere.

Peter Hammill
The Troubador
West Hollywood, CA
Feb. 4th 1978
Early Show*
& Late Show**

The Troubador Broadcast
Source: FM
Deck: Pioneer CT-F1000

Sound Quality: (A) EX- sound but with some flaws

KWST (FM) Radio Broadcast
82 minutes

This is something I have been looking for since I first discovered bootlegs. I recorded this off the air in 1978, then lost the tapes in storage for years. Thinking "I would just download a more complete copy from somewhere".
All six shows are now circulating (3 nights, 2 shows a night)
Thanks to T,
Only the early show from Feb. 4th is from a radio broadcast.
But different from this one.(First live broadcast I would guess).
This recording is from a later rebroadcast that used both the early & late shows, of Feb. 4th. And used the late show for the first two songs.

I have compared this recording note for note (matrix) with the audience recordings to be sure and to set speed/pitch.

This new version adds:
Complete version of "Afterwards"
and almost 2 songs from the late show now from FM
This does not replace or upgrade any previous releases. It stands alone.

This is the way it was rebroadcast,

NEW: Peter Hammill live in Oxford 1976 - 1CD - March 23

Peter Hammill
New Theatre
Oxford, England
23 March 1976

listenable, audience recording; solo performance

phundercover sent me two versions (presumably of the same source) of this show: version 1: 'Desperate Dreams' and version 2: CDr received in a trade.

-Version 1 had some loud digital noise/pops on a few tracks.
-Both versions were lower in the left channel.
-both versions had fade-outs of audience at the end of tracks
-version 2: frequencies approximately 21,500 Hz
-version 1: frequencies approximately 19,500 Hz


All of the tracks included in this download are from the CDr version (i.e. not "Desperate Dreams").

What was done:
-boosted left channel.
-split 'The Lie' and 'House With No Door' into two separate tracks.
-removed gaps between tracks
-increased speed 3.25% on tracks 01 to 06.
-smoothed transitions between tracks by applying minimal(0.5 to 1.0 second) fade-ins to tracks 04 to 10, 12, and 14.

(Repaired)

A portion of nadir_53's notes:

"Recorded with a sony stereo cassette recorder by taper 1

(sadly taper 1 forgot to record the first part of the show....)

quality: B except * which is B---

nadir_53"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


*Repairs on the files:

1. eliminated the noise/distortion at approximately 3:33 of 'The Lie' (This distortion was approximately 3 seconds in length; the lyric "unconscious eyes" is lost.)

2.eliminated the noise/distortion at approximately 2:43 of 'Rubicon'; (This distortion was approximately 3 seconds in length; the lyric "orchid eye" is lost.)

3. eliminated the digital pop at the beginning of 'Forsaken Gardens';

4. eliminated the abrupt tape recorder sound between 'Refugees and 'In the End';

5. eliminated the cut/pop at approximately 1:18, ("I guess I'd better sit down, you know I do need the rest....") of 'In the End'. (About half of that lyric was affected/lost due to the cut/pop, although I removed the entire line in the interest of flow.

6. eliminated the noise/distortion that occurs after 'In the End' and faded out the applause.

7. smoothed transitions between tracks;

8. adjusted the speed of tracks 01 thru 05 (taper 2) +6.2% and tracks 06 thru 11 (taper 1) +1.75%;

9. applied slight equilization to tracks 01 to 05 (taper 2) to decrease hiss.

10. renamed the files;

11. boosted right channel of tracks 06 to 11;

12. fixed sector boundary errors.

2012-10-15

the second (experimental) iphone release, now using a (so-called) proffesional app.
I realised the former (amsterdam 10-15) was encoded as 24 bit for some reason
(sorry for any inconvenience; being one of the youngest hammill hardcore phans you'd expect some decent tech knowledge)

Compared to Amsterdam this is Hammill in full force; I hope it shows from the recording

Note:you can hear a very low crackle (as from vinyl) hearded during the recording. I do not know where this comes from.

setlist:
01. My room
02. Time heals
03. Curtains
04. Losing faith in words
05. That wasn't what i said
06. Comfortable?!
07. Shingle song
08. Come clean
09. Stumbled

10. the Second hand [suffers from an accidental pauze/break]
11. Last frame
12. Friday afternoon
13. Undone
14. Your tall ship
15. Your bravest face
16. Traintime

17. Afterwards [very incomplete; again because of accidental pauzes]


Conlusion: special app does not add much to internal app/recorder in terms of quality
and it's higly touch and microphone sensitive....
the result is not bad, but not comparable to recent quality postings

still, as a memory of a fantastic show, better than nothing
so enjoy!

I received this today and I listened to it many times. Another time I have no words, another great show from 2010 tour, with a great vocal form (another time, please, forget some episodes from Pno, Gtr, Vox, this is another history). About Meanwhile My Mother, Ophelia, The Mercy, Undone I have to say “is this the best version of this song I heard?”, about Gone Ahead and Last Frame, I can say “not the best one but a great version”. Recommended!

Peter Hammill: voice, piano, acoustic guitar

Okay, with this one and the show in Salford (forthcoming here on DIME) and the other ones in Paris and Frankfurt posted in the previous hours, we can have the most important Hammill's European shows in 2010. Even this time, Mr. Rikki Nadir was in great vocal form and as in the show on Paris and in Frankfurt the songs are played well without great, usual, errors on instruments. Do you want to listen to one of the best version of the classic Ophelia? With the one in Sidney (1997), here you can find one of them, if not the best ever. Hammill is able to pass from a very light and beautiful falsetto to a full powerful note in tenor register, with accurate frightening. A truly amazing vocal performance, but also Time Heals is sublime (probably this is the most beautiful version of Hammill in recent years, after the ones in the late '70 and in the middle of '80). Friday Afternoon, Happy Hour, Last Frame, Tenderness and the magnificent clothing section of Vision (with a light falsetto that passes through the soul sowing shivers) are anthology. Highly recommended.

Comments from nowandever:

Hi folks ! We were about 150 unconditional fans of PH and filled up this nice place called La Maroquinerie in Paris 20st\

Well ... what is to say about this concert ? ... generous ? intense ? warm ? rageous ? huge ? All in one for sure. Peter was great, accompanied by Stuart with his sensitive violin. We felt like in a velvet box as "vision" was sung for the encore : He said "la prochaine !" We are waiting for you ...

The sound is very good and an A+ for sure

the Vera is my favorite club, but in 1980 I was only 5 years old...
I received this gem on cassette somewhere in 1998/1999 in a trade
and it was one of my first bootleg-mastering projects.


from www.vapp.de/ph I learned that 'still life' (probably the encore) is missing from the set on his cdr;
it's also not on my original cassette

but... the vapp site also lists 'again' (between last frame and time heals); that song is also not
on my cassette from 1999. (and therefore not in this download, we are dealing with different recordings i think)

1. The Lie (Bernini's Saint Theresa) 5:17

One of my favorie PH performances...
I dubbed this show from cassette to Mini disc (MDSP)* sometime in the late 90's. In edit mode I eliminated some louder, longer bits of applause.
Also, toward the end of "Refugees" PH had a bit of a lapse and there was a lengthy pause, which I (for better or worse) edited out.

NEW: Peter Hammill & Guy Evans live in London 1988 - 1CD - February 14

Peter Hammill& Guy Evans
QEH - London - UK
1988-02-14

now this one is for adventurous Hammill and/or Evans fans.
it's certainly not for everyone's taste

got this one in a trade somewhere around 2000 and always believed it was a one-off short set
promoting the experimental'spur of the moment' cd.

Vapp.de/ph tells me this was a first set before PH played his solo show

so original cd1 of a 2cd set; i hope to see the second disc emerge sometime

information on original taper is unknown to me; it has
however circulated on cdr as Gog productions #37 (1999)
and it was entitled 'spur of THAT moment'

tracklist:

1. Instrumental 1 5:37
2. Little Did He Know 6:06
3. Always So Polite 6:53
4. Anatol's Proposal 5:57
5. Untiteled 3:46
6. Bounced 5:22
7. Roger And Out 6:55
