  1. Yeah, you must be joking! I agree to 100% that "What happened to your voice in 72, Robert?" is on the very top of the list. But sadly only in theory. I bet that his ego would NEVER EVER allow this question. Past, present or future: He would book this question as "Injury to his Majesty, Robert Anthony 1." Honestly, he turns 69 this year & still thinks he has the veto right to put down the cronological live album, a hearfelt wish of Jimmy since the 70ies! Jimmy, the man he owes more to than anyone else!!!- and he doesn`t give a shit. He had the guts to strut the stage 73 to 75, doing hi
  2. About Sonic Boom: The stereo mix has the odd separation, Mr. Jones on the left channel while the other members have to share the right channel- not very satisfying listening experience..... And now on to the good news: The mono mix has a good balance & you can crank it up to 11. Compared to EVs Florida Sunshine it is slightly less clear in the top range, particularly the voice, cymbals & keyboard. The only drawback is that the voice is a little overloaded (not distorted), means whenever Robert turns up there is a low sizzling noise, but not disturbing to my ears. All in all the m
  3. Hi As we all know nothing yet, except THE gentleman in Tokyo, I notice, that most of you seem to favour or assume a 75 or 77 SB release. I don`t think the term Deus Ex Machina is a clue for the release of an so far uncirculated concert, maybe it is a SB of a concert we only know from AUD sources, or even possibly an adorable AUD source released from some tape hoarder.........could be anything........ Personally, I`d like to go back to the very beginning of this thread: Let it be the SB of 9/28/1971- Osaka first night, I will donate 28 candles in a church
  4. Hi Got my 2LP-set "Berkely Daze 2nd Night" 9/14/71 last week. It`s 180 gram, yellow vinyl, a fine gatefold cover & ltd to 400. It was sold as a new Eat A Peach release, shipped directly from Trieste, Italy- but Eat A Peach is nowhere mentioned on the cover. Instead it is stated as a Casino Records Ent. release, distributed by The Family Affair Company, LA, USA. Very confusing- zepster1979, who also got it, think it is released by the Godfather folks. Anyway, it sounds way better than my old CD Going To California by Electric Junk. Unfortunately, I am not in the luc
  5. nt Hi zepster1979! I have received my copy of Berkely 2nd Daze last week & noticed a strange thing: My man in the USA sold me the 2LP set as a new (jan.2017) Eat a peach release, for lower shipping cost it was send directly from the producers, Trieste Italy. So far so good, but Eat a Peach is not mentioned anywhere on the cover, instead it is stated as a 2015 Casino Records Entertainment release, distributed by The Family Affair Company from LA USA. What do you think about that? Anyway, it is my first vinyl of this great show & I lke the sound.
  6. Hi Duckman Yes, you are perfectly right. I am very sorry, my memory got messed up a little bit. Today I have listened to the vinyl for the first time in twenty years & have identified it as the January 15th Trentham Gardens, Stoke show. Wow, so I was completely off topic even though I was stone cold sober. I have to apologise again, but please believe me, hearing that record again was really hard punishment. Never too old to make an idiot of myself........
  7. About twenty years ago I have spent some days in London. I browsed many record stores in search of L.Z. vinyl boots & luckily I finally found a "Going To California" by TMOQ (the one with beige cover and red writing). Cover and vinyls (red) seemed to be in great (NM) condition, the price was moderate, I felt like I had found an ancient treasure. One of the first things I did back home in Vienna was to listen to this record. Only a few seconds into the recording I started to get confused and worried: Why is Rock & Roll the first song? And as Robert joins with a completely shot voice I
  8. I think Argenteum Astrum is quite a reliable source and I am thankful it exists. Funny how the most of you are bothered wheter Sonic Boom is an expanded release or not. My problem is completely different nature: The only release I have of this show is "Hampton Kicks" by The House Of Elrond, and I can tell you, this is the worst CD of a soundboard I`ve heard in my life. I can`t stand it any longer, so I have ordered Sonic Boom already- for me it is a winwin situation, because it HAS to be an sound improvement compared to Hampton Kicks. My CD is still on it`s way from Japan, when I got it, I wil
  9. The Sanctuary release has tape source 1 as foundation (as most of the boots have) and is a bit shrill to my ears. It lacks the warm bass frequency range and mids & high range are dominant. Altough I am a big fan of most of the Winton Remasters, I think his version of Blueberry Hill isn`t an improvement either. The highs are cut like it underwent heavy noise reduction, so the voice and the instruments sound isolated & it lacks a life concert atmosphere. Maybe the old vinyl boots did sound better, but as they cost a fortune, I will try the Eat A Peach release next.
  10. There is a new release containing afternoon & evening show on 4 Cds. "No Label"- looks like a Lighthouse release & promising amazing upgrade in sound. Don`t know if one could trust promises of the Lighthouse Team.........
  11. Hi, very interesting because it is my firts AUD version. Funny, my favorite was Smoke gets in your eyes by Mud Dogs-a SB-boot. The AUD seems not as good as the best versions for 923, but I like it, interesting to hear it "the other way" Kind regards Robert
  12. I finally got it last friday. After 3 runs I´d like to share my impression with you. As a start: the set is named "Live In Japan 1971 929" by Wendy. It contains 3 Cds SB & 3 Cds AUD, My review will examine the SB release. Wendy praises their SB-source as "Historical Original Soundboard Recording" (as written on the cover) but they give no specific detail about the source or tape generation, further, they declare to keep it secret. Anyway, they call it there definitive release of the 929 show. To picture the sound quality, I`ve decided to compare it to the widely spread & beloved W
  13. Sorry, my mistake, please see edited post above. If I am talking about a Hampton-disaster, it is all about the sound. I would not dare to judge the performance due to the shitty sound.
  14. Rrrreally nice topic, so for the first time in ten years I took my Hampton-cd (Hampton Kicks/House of Elrond) out of its high security storage- I should have known better: Ah, Yes, the Solo is quite extended & I even got to Black Dog- but I have suffered agonies to get this far. Good Lord, this is the most rotten LZ-SBD I have ever heard. Did I miss a better release of this show? But I don`t think so, isn`t it still: Orlando top/ Toronto moderate & Hampton sucks?! It took a intense journey from Berkeley to Osaka to get over this Hampton-disaster...........
  15. I bought it already, but it is not delivered yet, may take another 10 days til it arrives. Haven`t heard about that this is a limited release, but I was told, that it is really hard to get. Only 3 label related shops are selling this cd-set. Anyway, I will report my impression as soon as I heard it, though I do not own the Fatally Wanderer Definitive version to compare. Also, I am curious about he AUD version since I only got different "so called soundboard" releases yet. L. Rey mentioned an "amazing" third AUD source........ Exciting, I`ll wait and see.........
  16. Hi, there is no better topic as the much-loved 71 tour of Japan to start my forum activity. The new Wendy release "Live In Japan 1971 929" from the 2nd Osaka show on Sept. 29. 1971 contains 6 Cds with full SB and AUD, is described as most completed version so far & promises huge upgrade in sound. (price about $ 200) The sound sample indeed reveals an upgrade, Roberts voice is far more audible than ever, to my ears equal in the mix as it should be. But I am in doubt, if this is from the well known so-called soundboard source. Anyway, I am convinced because I simply love this show.
