Track listing (62:02):

Sound quality for this acoustic show is outstanding, and the performance is great -- a loose, fun show with lots of audience interaction and primarily covers. If I remember correctly, this show was done as a thank you for all of the support that WMMR had given JCM during his early career, and particularly for the "American Fool" breakthrough album he was still promoting at the time. Hardcore Mellencamp fans already have this, though perhaps not in this lineage; even casual fans will want to give this a try, however.

Enlight note:
Perfect soundboard recording, featuring the complete "Romeo & Juliet" version, and "The Long Highway" and "Going Home" from this date ,so NOT! added from Vaison-la-romaine Aug. 8 1996.

Very long performance of Sultans of Swing .
Nice versions of Darling Pretty, Golden Heart and Money For Nothing (POWERFULL DRUM).

The audience singing - Ole Ole Ole - and the band playing a accompaniament for this and Mark Plays a stunning solo over it.

When you compare this "Going Home" version with e.g. Vaison 96 , you can hear the echo-delay set in Mark's guitar sound before he starts playing the melody line. this is a very, very powerfull 1996 version.

Info from 'Eight Arms To Hold You' by Chip Madinger and Mark Easter:
"Now that he had helped Ringo attempt to resuscitate his recording career, it was time for Paul to figure out the next move of his own. With the (apparent) help of Denny Laine on some of the songs, he laid down several demos for a projected new LP project that would reunite him with George Martin. An August 1980 compilation of demos prepared for George consisted of old and new material for consideration for the upcoming LP project. The running order of the tape was as follows: 'Seems Like Old Times', 'Ballroom Dancing', 'Take It Away', 'Turkey And Peacock' (perhaps an early version of 'Peacocks'), 'It's As Simple As That (Tremolo Cello)'. 'Robber Riff', 'We All Stand Together', 'Stiff Tracks' (most likely 'Boil Crisis' and 'Give Us A Chord, Roy' which were very much like the tunes being released by Stiff Records at the time), 'Keep Under Cover', 'Average Person', 'Unbelievable Experience', 'Stop, You Don't Know Where She Came From', 'Wanderlust' and 'Ebony And Ivory'. While some of the songs ('Take It Away', 'Ballroom Dancing') were particulary strong, some of the tunes Paul submitted ('The Unbelievable Experience', 'Boil Crisis') were bad enough to force George to tell Paul to scrap them and write more; this he did. However, in 1987, an excellent quality tape of some of this material was released on bootleg as 'Rude Studio Demos' (a CD version was issued in 1989 from the same tape). In 1995, excerpts of several of the tracks were aired on various episodes of 'Oobu Joobu', and although they were in superior quality to the bootlegged versions, all of the airings were incomplete."

Total Running Time: 1h 32m 22s

One half has a timecode & "Bill Graham Presents" written on the screen; the other half does not, but is of lesser quality.

0:00:00 to 0:52:38 - Timecoded
0:52:38 to 1:32:22 - No Timecode

Cover art states 120 minutes.  DVD actually only last approximately 92 minutes.
The sound fluctuates on occasions; bassy in places; trebly in others; sometimes distorted.
The timecoded footage is from a different source to that of the Mad Raving Stark version; the actual timecode is different.  The un-timecoded section may or may not be from the same source.
There is more of an intro on the HiWatt version (approximately 9 seconds more).  The timecode on the HiWatt version is less obstrusive on the screen.  Mad Raving Stark's version has MPEG-1 Layer 2 audio (48khz, 384kbps); HiWatt's version is AC3 (48khz, 448kbps). HiWatt's version includes some of "Christmas" and all of "The Acid Queen"; Mad Raving Stark's version does not have any footage of "Christmas" at all and cuts in during "The Acid Queen".
The non-timecoded footage is better in video quality on the HiWatt version.  The timecoded footage is only slightly better on the HiWatt version, however with the timecode being less obtrusive it is nicer to watch.  The audio is richer/louder on the Mad Raving Stark version, but from an audiophile point of view, not necessarily better.

**Notes included with Silver CD**
Much confusion has surrounded these recordings from March 18th, 1973 in recent years; Pink Floyd were scheduled to perform in Waterbury, Conneticut on the date in question, and thus, many of the tapes from this date were attributed to the Palace Theatre in Waterbury for that reason.

However, the band actually performed twice on the 18th; although the tickets for Pink Floyd's March 17th 1973 concert at New York's Radio City Music Hall had been printed with the March 17th date, the band didn't actually take to the stage until 1 A.M. the following morning, hence he difficulty in accurately identifying this show.

Early tape traders originally determined that the origin of these recordings was the Radio City Music Hall, but as new sources emerged with the March 18th date, and subsequently compared to the older Radio City sources, determined to all be of the same show, based upon the bands tour schedule, they were then attributed to Waterbury!

Ultimately, it is unlikey that 5+ sources could originate from one show in a small Conneticut city in 1973, yet none from the famous Radio City Music Hall in New York, and given this fact, along with other details found within the recordings themselves, we can finally clear up this confusion once and for all! We proudly present to you the silver debut of Pink Floyd's excellent 1973 performance at New York's Radio City Music Hall, in support of the "Dark Side Of The Moon" album!

The eleventh concert of the bands first North American tour for 1973 includes "When You're In" and "Obscured By Clouds" from the soundtrack of the same name. - these songs would only be performed live in 1973, and make documents such as this even more valuable. Additionally, this would be the last year "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun" would be performed on a Pink Floyd tour, and the other long time fature "Careful With That Axe, Eugene" would soon be retired the following year to make way for newer material. Of course, the centrepiece of this collection is the complete "Dark Side of the Moon" suite, marking the first time the New York audience would experience the final, post-LP release version of the epic, which had transformed significantly since the bands last visit in May of 1972.

Without question, this is one of the most important concerts the band performed in 1973 that directly contributed to the changing fortunes of the band!

This can be viewed as a marked improvement over many previous releases, due to the multiple source tapes used. The rare inclusions of "Obscured By Clouds" and "When You're In" are in possibly the best sound quality I've heard for the live renditions of these songs. Just as a side-note, it is a well known fact the The Grateful Dead were in attendance at this concert; you can hear someone near the one of the tapers saying "The Dead just left".

MQR releases this in memory of Rolf Ossenberg, who passed away on
17 December, 2012.
This show was the last Rolf worked on in the few
days before he left us.
Thanks to him and his passionate research over
the course of 35 years, research that took him all over the world at great
expense to himself in search of master tapes and other Pink Floyd
material, this show wasn't lost to time.
All those who knew this gentle
and nice guy can recognize in this artwork the same style he used in
his loony New Year cards.

The following notes were written by WRomanus and }{eywood based on the recollections of Rolf, Mike K., Ron C., Duckpont49, creamcheese and WRomanus.

Pepperland resided in San Rafael, CA, USA from September 1970 to the end of January 1972.
Prior to that it was known as Euphoria (though only for the summer of 1970) Bermuda Palms, and Lichfield's.
Pepperland was a Beatles-themed hall that featured a quadraphonic sound system designed by sound engineer John Meyer, who later built custom PA systems for the Grateful Dead.
It was 2 large rooms joined together with a partial wall separating both rooms.
This wall was opened up and later removed. The Room had a very low ceiling less than 10 feet high, creating excellent sound.
The support girders for the hall’s roof were adorned with painted portholes that mimicked the windows of the Yellow Submarine.
Even the sound system blended into the décor, with the speakers molded into huge fiberglass cones in which people would often be found sitting. There was very poor ventilation. Lots of pot and cigarette smoke. No air conditioning. No HVAC.
Very cold in winter, too hot the rest of the time.

For Pink Floyd's shows there the band needed to use the ballroom floor to accommodate all of their gear, which took up two trucks to transport. PF was set up against the back wall opposite the entrance on a very low riser.
The big Glyph horns were set up in the corners and there were Shure vocal columns set up every 20 feet or so along the walls in between. There were slide projectors up in the metal rafters projecting fisheye photos of farm animals into the painted portholes on the walls in reference to the Atom Heart Mother cover.
A few steps up at the back of the performance space was another space with a trippy sculpture in the center, a female hand holding up a glowing sphere surrounded by "angel hair" and all under a plex dome. There were no more than 500 people present, sitting on the floor in the center, with some folks sitting up inside the big Glyph bottom horns.

Pink Floyd were on tour promoting their new album, Atom Heart Mother, which had just been released a few days before. They played there two nights, the 16th and 17th, returning to California for the fourth time in their career. As with everytime they came to CA they felt at their best and their performance was really hot. This time, though, was the first time they didn't play Interstellar Overdrive, an omission not lost to the Californian fans who considered it a certainty.

That first night there were many problems with the power. The club's system was unable to deal with the multichannel sound system the Floyd brought, and several power outages marred the performance of Astronomy Domine. Three more small outages occurred during the crescendo of A Saucerful of Secrets, but this time the band forged on and finished the song in spite of them, much to the fans' delight.

The show was originally recorded by Jay D. and Ron C. with a Sony TC-126 with Powered Single Point Stereo Microphone, using either Sony Red or Green cassette tapes. They sat 10-12 rows back, left of center. When the boys got back home, they instantly made two copies onto Scotch 7" Reel, one for Jay and one for Ron C. The Master Cassettes were re-used for next day's Jethro Tull show in Berkeley. They were usually never kept, due to the unreliability of cassette transport mechanisms at the time.

Thanks to this recording the show was soon famous amongst the fan trader circles and many bootlegs were released with at least some of these songs, especially the four attempts at Astronomy Domine.

Jay D. never traded this item so all copies around came from Ron C.'s reel copy which went rotten in the early 90's. Rolf Ossenberg managed to get the Jay D. 1st gen reel copy which would no longer play back at all. With the invaluable help of Mike K., the reel was baked in June 2011 (the morning after Roger Waters' show in Düsseldorf) and transferred from Revox A77 into Tascam US-200 to a 96KHz/24bit file. Rolf was really nervous about baking the Scotch tape. The issue is that the binder used was incorrectly made so it absorbs moisture. This is believed to be a problem with all old Scotch/Ampex reels. This moisture interferes with the adhesive so during playback you get lots of sticky gunk (yes, that is the technical term for it) collecting on the playback head and it impacts playback quality and even speed. So you have to fix it. Rolf had bought a well-controlled oven specifically for this purpose. They baked at 53C to 55C for 3-4 hours to drive the moisture out without damaging the plastic backing, let cool down to room temp, and voila' ... The tape plays back with no problems for a month or so.

Rolf gave that to creamcheese for cutting and some "basic treatment", as we used to call it. A 50 Hz hum that probably appeared with the transferring process was taken away very carefully. A little EQ was done to give the recording a bit more body. Rolf approved it that way. He furtherly agreed to MQR making a remastered release from this but it was his wish to release that (almost) raw one himself first. Unfortunately we were in November 2012 and Rolf's time has come. Creamcheese released the transfer as Grolsch's Baked Pepperland Reel a few days after Rolf (Grolsch) passed away.

This remaster uses that same transfer. The 50 Hz de-humming was redone with iRX2. The recording was then EQ'ed and a 1st run of Noise Reduction was done with iRX2. A 2nd Noise Reduction run was applied later. Some kind of noise "popping up" around sharp transients is audible throughout the show. A hiss that only appears in conjunction with an audible sound; when there's no sound there's no hiss. This was particularly noticeable during the spoken intros. For this reason the whole project was restarted from scratch. Although the result of the 2nd attempt is way better sounding, we were not able to remove that popping noise entirely. As it appeared independently of the NR settings, we suspect it to have been in the source material but buried in the hiss. After that WRomanus manually removed clicks, pops, shits and some coughs for a more pleasant listening with iRX2. The final master was then done by creamcheese applying another slight EQ, balancing the stereo image in collaboration with WRomanus and removing some phase issues on the bass range of the recording. A little pressure was added applying very gentle multiband compression. }{eywood manually adjusted the volume of a few parts to be more dynamic and better represent the way the songs sounded live, countering the level compression of the original analog gear, and then made an optimi zed 16/44.1 Master for CD playback of this very dynamic recording.

The main artwork is made with two of the pics WRomanus took of Rolf talking about this show with Ron C., one of the tapers, during a meeting of floydian fans in Rome. WRomanus conceived this artwork with Rolf's loony New Years cards in mind... Some of which you can see in the booklet.

This copy sounds excellent and the only real issue is the last minute or so of the final track.  "Little Queenie" has some kind of audible clicking error at the very end of the show and disc. But so whgt?  At least it's in the last minute or so of the show. This is an REO Speedwagon in their prime show!  And when you hear the interview before the show, you can make an educated guess as to what they were primed up on too.  Kevin Cronin has always been a talker during shows.  It can get a little irritating when you want him to shut up so the band can start playing again.  But this interview before the show has him talking 100 mph and kind of makes you think "what is he on?"  The band is superb in their playing and the recording has good stereo separation too with Gary Richrath's guitar in the right channel.  This really is a spectacular show.

I was going to upload this show yesterday and I did and EAC rip of my Kodak Gold CD-R copy of it from a 2000 trade I did with a great Zeppelin trader back in the day.  But then I realized something.  There was a 2 CD copy out there and I didn't have it.  I could only find a lossy mp3 copy of it and that just wouldn't work!  I thought about an REO Speedwagon collector/sharing friend I met on Dime, "bobobo", and I messaged him and asked if he had the 2 CD copy.  And when I checked back a little later, he had sent it to me.  So all thanks goes to "bobobo" for this more complete copy of the concert.  It was definitely worth waiting just a short time on the uploading of the concert to get it.
