the ROCKY HORROR (PICTURE) SHOW
05-14-1975 - BELASCO THEATER BROADWAY
NEW YORK CITY, NY, USA



This is a recording from March 14th, 1975 of the (very short-lived) original run of The Rocky Horror (Picture) Show at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway. It was taken from a 1/4" reel-to-reel tape kept by one of the sound engineers at the Belasco. The show opened on March 10th, 1975 so this was one of the first few performances. It features Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Richard O'Brien as Riff Raff, and Meat Loaf as Eddie/Dr. Scott along with the rest of the cast from the Roxy Theatre. All sound files contributed by Justin "Muzzle" Carpenter.

Thanks! Any other Rocky Horror boots would be greatly appreciated ... these are hard to find. (For me, at least.)

The Rocky Horror Show -
Live at the Belasco Theatre, New York 3-14-75

This is a live recording made on March 14th, 1975 of the
(very short-lived) Rocky Horror Show's original run at
the Belasco Theatre on Broadway. It was taken from a 1/4"
reel-to-reel tape kept by one of the sound engineers at
the Belasco. This source is the same source that was used
on The Website "The Musical World Of Rocky Horror" however......
This is a new rip from the Original Wav files, Completely
retracked and Speed Corrected. I also had to do a lot of
Declicking, due to some imperfections in the Original Recording.
I was extremely careful not to do any editing or to alter the
recording, other than to fix the speed to match the Roxy LP.

I personally have been searching for a copy of this recording
for about 25 years before it turned up last Halloween. After
some trading, I was able to get a copy of the WAV files, and I
went to work to clean them up a bit. This is a mono recording,
but it's the Complete Play, and it's extremely rare because
it has Tim Curry, Meatloaf AND Richard O'Brian in the cast
(who was filling in). This was the 3rd Performance of a three
month run at the Belasco Theatre, and this took place After
the movie was filmed, but Before it was released in the movie theaters.
That in itself makes this a very rare recording. I know of a
few people who claim to have a copy of this for years, but never
would trade it. This version also has no Digi-Noise that is on
the version posted on The Musical World Of Rocky Horror. Both the
mp3 and flac versions posted there have Digi-noise in different places
in the recording. I got a hold of the Original WAV files and they
were not present in the recording, leading me to believe that it
was ripped poorly. I offered to send him a better copy, but the trade never went thru.
I wanted to help share this amazing show with the world
before I have to move to a new apartment. Please share this with
anyone who is a Rocky Horror Fan! They will thank you for it!
I have listened to this show about 10 times in the last 2 weeks, to
make sure I am posting the best possible copy.

Info found on Musical World of Rocky Horror:

This is a recording from March 14th, 1975 of the (very short-lived)
original run of The Rocky Horror Show at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway.
It was taken from a 1/4" reel-to-reel tape kept by one of the sound
engineers at the Belasco. The show opened on March 10th, 1975 so this was
one of the first few performances. It features Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter,
Richard O'Brien as Riff Raff, and Meat Loaf as Eddie/Dr. Scott along with the
rest of the cast from the Roxy Theatre. All sound files contributed by
Justin "Muzzle" Carpenter.

The quality is excellent, and the recording is of the complete show
(including all dialogue). It was transferred from 1/4" reel-to-reel
to a chrome cassette which was played only twice, first to test and
second to record it digitally. It's very listenable, though some of
the dialogue does get very low in volume and is occasionally overpowered
by audience reactions. It's fantastic being able to hear Richard O'Brien,
Tim Curry, and Meat Loaf all on stage together though.


-------------------------------
Thank You Justin for finally making this available to the world. I hope you don't mind
that I improved the recording by speed correcting and declicking it. I used SoundForge
to do all the editing, etc. I would not consider this a remaster, just an adjustment, and
a new rip from the Original Files, Not the Flac files found on Music World Of.....

This recording Blows My Mind. I Hope It's Allowed to be posted here on Dime. If not, I'll try
to post it somewhere else like the trader's Den. I perfer to post it here. I love Dime, and
I want to give something rare back to the community.

This show played at the Roxy Theatre in Toronto for 25 years straight, or more, before the old place closed down. I always wondered why people brought burnt toast to the movie, and then tossed them at the screen.
