It’s an audience tape
How so? I’ve always been curious as to where new sources come from, especially when they are soundboards.
Too much pattieing?
Yes it is.
Bit late to the party on this one. I’ve not bought a CD for years but this will be the first. Package looks great, a reasonable price and some of the best music ever
"Goodbye Tour Live 1968" will certainly be better than the previous bootlegs, otherwise it would be a scam! And I absolutely don't think it's possible.
Thanks for that. So there are 4 shows in March 1968 which may or may not exist in their entirety in the vaults. I guess if they or some of the unreleased material from those shows are in usable condition they could be used on a Wheels of Fire box. Still looking forward to the Goodbye box next February.
Just listened again to the circulated set. Sounds pretty good. If this is a true upgrade, then should be very impressive. Hopefully, there will be a download version. Another "book" on my shelf....oy.
Very true. I was just reading a book last night that included an interview with Lonn Friend who was the editor of RIP Magazine. He said they needed to get review material three months ahead of a title’s release if they were going to sync up the review in the mag with the release date of an album.
Of course, there would be times when a mag won’t get the final physical packaging... it might just be the CD in an envelope and a link to graphics of the final packaging to be used in the magazine.
You never know. The recent Fleetwood Mac release Before The Beginning 1968-1970 is worse than the circulating bootlegs as is the official release of the Rolling Stones' BBC sessions called On Air.
Anyone know why the 1967 Grande Ballroom show has never had an official release? Easily my fave live Cream.
I think the only thing we DON'T have from that magnificent early show at Winterland on 03/10/68 is We're Going Wrong - if there was a vintage mix floating round of that track, a complete issue of that show (either standalone or as part of a larger WoF set) would be an absolute no-brainer, in my book.
Anything is possible, but Bill Levenson is overseeing this project and working from 1st generation tapes, so one expects it to be superior to the boots.
True, but you would always think the official release should be better and it is not always the case. Who knows if someone will compress it or in the Doors case overdub motorcycle sounds or instruments?
Not having heard it yet, I'm not sure how much better it will sound, but I wouldn't expect it to be any worse. There was a bit of tweaking that I didn't care for on the boot; we'll see what tweaking was done for the official release.
Yup, +1 mate! And the Cream BBC set is no-noised to death, plus only a fraction of all the band's BBC sessions - contrary to what's "out there". Ugh!
Any bluray audio release for this?
Someone mentioned the mastering engineer for this project some pages back and it wasn’t flattering. You’d think that on a serious effort to reach a dedicated fan base that mastering of the existing tape sources would’ve been handed to someone known for meeting those fan expectations. If not, then you have to wonder.
Well, I don't have any Cream live recordings (apart of the short reunion thing in 2005). So I definitely will buy this.
Thank you for the public service - and saving me from doing the very same thing Bravo!
Just got this from Townsend in the UK.
Final Tour 1968 4CD
I assume this will morph into separate music and cost threads. But the best price I have found was Amazon UK.
$44 out the door (and I can wait the extra two weeks for delivery).
IIRC, USA retailers are at a disadvantage due to a higher royalty rate paid to artists. That's why we often see lower prices on these vault releases out of the UK.
Congratulations, I feed on your beautiful books on Eric Clapton, even though I am interested mostly in the period 65-69. Well about the last concerts at RAH on "Day By Day" and specifically on the first show you write "Setlist is said to be similar to the late show, but not as long due to late running". Since I'm curious, in fact I started a specific thread on this, do you have any news on the exact setlist of the first show?
