Comfortably Numb [8:24] SHOW REVIEW : ------------- This is the second time in a week I saw Pink Floyd, erhm sorry, I mean David Gilmour. I liked the Paris Olympia show a lot (see "He Spoke French!" FA024). At Paris, the band seemed to enjoy themselves more, David was happy to play in France and had a lot of fun and interaction with the audience. The venue was very special too and a majority of the audience was made of diehard fans and collectors. Now Amsterdam First Night was very different. The type of audience was more ecclectic, ranking from the usual PF freaks to the housewife who was expecting to hear Money but never heard of a song called Echoes. I won't say the audience wasn't receptive or cold, but they were very polite... I can't compare it better than with the Japanese audience from the early seventies. It was a real pleasure to be able to hear songs until the very very last faded out note before they began to clap. It is very enjoyable not to have to shout SIT YER FUK'N ASS DOWN. Actually, in the middle of a song you might even think this is a soundboard source, that's how quite and respectful the audience was. So yes, the venue wasn't on fire, and I admit the performance was a little more mechanical than in Paris. Maybe that the band felt the 'coolness' too, but in my opinion and in terms of performance, this is one of the best show from the European tour because they played perfectly. All songs are flawless, Technical issues, unlike on other nights, were minor and few (David "lost a bit of guitar" just after A Pocketful of Stones but it didn't screw up a song). The band gave the best of what they could play, wrapped in stage smoke and laser shows that hasn't to blemish from the comparison with the stadion tours. Actually we are blessed David chose to play smaller venues for this tour : half this show would be impossible to play in open field or stadions. We couldn't have enjoyed Dominoes, Wot's Uh Deal, and even this maestro re-orchestration of Shine On anywhere else than in music halls. Who do we have here on stage? "The voice and guitar of Pink Floyd" ; the original keyboard player and arranger ; Dick Parry, the same sax as on the DSOTM album, the band's first additional live musician ; Jon Carin who can be counted as a fulltime live member since 1987 and also tours (and will tour again) with good ol' Roger ; Guy Pratt, familiar from the 94 tour too ; ... you bought a ticket for David Gilmour, but you'll come out dreaming of the best Pink Floyd show you've heard in years :-) QUOTES OF THE DAY : ------------------- "..." - DG: "Sorry ?" - "You're 60!" - DG: "I know." DG: "Right, we're gonna sing one more song here... well, _ I _ am gonna sing it - they're gonna play it. And this is called Where We Start. We're gonna take a short break after this ... to regather our senses." Some idiot: "SYD BARRETT I WISH YOU WERE HERE" DG: "Yeah yeah" Some dude right before WTIO singing: "Is there anybody out there?" Some other dude after CN: "Hey David, thank you very, very much" and of course ... "YEESHKUL!" RELEASE NOTES : --------------- I had a sweet spot to record from : the dude on my left was VERY silent and respectful, on my right there was an empty seat, the young guys up front where very pleasant too, i only had a few talkers in the back, but nothing bad. God bless, I wasn't right beside the SYD BARRETT shouter. I would have slapped him anyway. This is everything I recorded, with the exception of 20 secs of set break and one 0.1 second edit of a sneeze of a neighbour somewhere between two songs. I also smoothened out a few testing taps on the mics (before Echoes e.g.). The original digital recording was very nice already, but it suffered from a few anomalies I had to correct first. First, I was located pretty much on the left side from stage in front of a wall of loudspeakers and I had to look left to see the stage. Since my mics are in-ear, the right channel was pretty much louder than the left one. After increasing the volume of the right channel I also mixed a bit of the left one in it to balance the levels a bit better. The other big issue is one I faced already at the PAris Olympia show : most part of the gig is in mono and sometimes it switches from mono to stereo. that's because of some loose connection somewhere along the line of mic connectors or in the battery module or something. Actually it's dual mono : the channels are identical but nicely separated. It doesn't just "hang" somewhere in between your speakers, there is a little spatiality. It took me a lot of time to make seamless smooth transitions between those changes in panning, still you will hear some occuring if you listen with a headset. It's much less obvious through loudspeakers and that's how I advice to listen to this one. I also EQ'ed the original recording which sounded a bit dark, so I pushed the dynamics for guitar and vocals a bit. I hope you'll all like it nevertheless, enjoy! - Furry Animal (official release date : 9 April 2006) ***************************************** Recording and remastering by Furry Animal Artwork by FlyingPig Quality control and distribution by Buffalofloyd, GBC, Breathe ************************************************************** *********************************************************** Thanks going to FlyingPig for the ride and all his work and involvment these last days with every possible roio label, and to Kootje, Oldstock's girlfriend and Murphy508 for the pictures.
