LDB Master Series #392

Welcome to my Master Series which started way back in November 2005. This series is only about masters, concerts I
recorded myself either from audience or from radio/TV broadcasts. Occasionally I could also share masters that have
been kindly given to me by many friends and fellow tapers I have been meeting during my long career of live taping

Please DO NOT share this music on mp3. if you want to listen to these shows on your own iPod, feel free to convert
the files in lossy format for your own use and enjoyment. Do not put lossy sources in blogs or sites for downloading,
always use the lossless FLAcs which will ensure that the quality I have put in these recording is preserved. Sharing mp3
is the right way to make me stop sharing music here.

Also, please do not SELL these concerts. These have been recorded and shared by me with the only purpose to give it
absolutely free of charge and no profit should be made by those who took these files for free. I am quite picky and
do regular checks on websites to see if any of this series are being sold. I have been quite successfull in having
them removed from sale and even to shut down the site (don´t ask me how :)

Finally, some notes about your truly ldb: I have been a fan of live music since I was 9 years old and my first taped
show was at 11 using a crappy portable cassette player with embedded microphone.
I become more serious about taping in 1983 when I started to record every show. In 1991 I acquired my first Sony
Professional and in 2000 I moved to MiniDisc to settle on R-09 in early 2008 and now finally with a Zoom H4n.

I have attended over 500 shows in my career. I really like the live spirit because you can really test if a band is just
a fake in studio or if they are really a shining star in concert. capturing the moment by recording it means being able
to listen to it once again and have a sort of "re-play" of the moments I enjoyed during the show.

Some of the best shows I have attended were Pink Floyd in Chantilly 1994, Miles Davis Paris 1991, Porcupine Tree Milano 1997,
Marillion Bologna 1985, Paul McCartney Milano 1989, Pearl Jam Milano 1992, Rush Stuttgart 1992, Mercury Rev Milano 2001,
Dream Theater Paris 1992, Genesis Milton Keynes 1992, Magma Paris 2009, Pat Metheny Group Milano 2005, Radiohead Verona 2001,
Santana Milano 1984, Peter Gabriel Paris 1983, Supertramp Paris 1983, U2 Milano 1992 and many more

I truly believe that live music is what keeps music alive, what make us enjoying it together, what allow us to
have deep feelings and transmit it to others. Studio records are nowadays 'commodities': you can buy online as
anonymous wav files and listen in your iPod or at home. Live music will always imply an effort to buy the tix,
see the show, be attentive and receptive to the music.

Let's enter into the uncirculated recordings of mine. Main reason for not having traded this particular one was because my
recording was incomplete. What happened was that the gig started late, it must have been 10.30 PM, and by the time the show
reached the two hours mark, the band was coming back for the second encore. I was very tired and decided to come back home,
having still to drive some 40 km.

So I basically kept this recording till I found out that my good friend Umbiprog was also there and had recorded the whole
thing. On the comparison from the two masters, mine proved to be slightly better, so I decided to gently insert the last
encore into my source. Now the concert is absolutely complete from start to finish and can be shared!

Having listened to it back after more than ten years, I enjoyed it very much, where I recall during the show I was a bit
disappointed by the big length of the tracks, most of them lasting more than 30 minutes.

I don't know why I had split the show in two parts to fit two cds, but I left it unchanged, so here it is!
