  • BOSTON Dec.10.1988 - Winnipeg, Manitoba - Winnipeg Arena Third Stage tour [audience recording] Here is a nice concert from Boston's "Christmas in Canada" tour, the second leg of the Third Stage tour. If you ever saw Boston on the Third Stage tour, it was a blast. Boston was hot! hot! hot! and the crowds were so fired up! They played sold-out large indoor venues, oftentimes several nights in the same city. This brief tour was interesting because Boston scrambled up their setlist and performed the unreleased song "Television Politician" to the surprise of everybody in attendance. But what makes this particular night special is that they played "Hitch a Ride" in its entirety. It's the only night that I am aware that it happened... ever. Maybe they did it by accident, but they did it and it sounds great! The recording of this concert was done using unknown equipment. It is stereo and not distorted so we know there were two good quality mics used. There are cuts where presumably the tape flip occurred, so I assume it was originally recorded on cassette tape. The cuts occur between "Don't Look Back" and "The Journey", at the beginning of "To Be a Man", at the end of CD-1, and at the beginning of "Can'tcha Say". There are also cuts during the long sections of applause before each encore. I made this CD set from a copy of the master on normal bias tape. There is some tape hiss present but it is not at a distracting level. Overall, I rate this recording a solid B or maybe even an A-. The only edits I made was to raise the volume level slightly on the last segment since it was a little low compared to the rest of the concert. This did raise the level of the hiss along with everything else, but it seemed to be the right thing to do. Other than that I did not even normalize it. I pretty much nailed the recording level as it played into the PC. This torrent includes the FLAC files and cuesheets (with CD-Text) so you can burn your CD using "Burrrn". You can also use "Exact Audio Copy" to burn the CDs but you will first have to decode the FLAC files to WAV and change the cuesheets. There is no artwork included.
