In November of 2001, our friend David Le Hunte (aka Massed Gadget) sent us a copy of this show from what was then known as the best recording of this date. I spent some time cleaning it up 
and, ultimately, improved its sound quality. Notably, 'Speak To Me' was over seven minutes long with about six minutes being just the heartbeat... 

Anyway, back to our story. While on the job, our pal Gonzo set out to find the best possible recording, and over time uncovered the master that we've used for this release. It comes from a generous taper who wishes only to be known as JCE (oooh, the mystery) to us. However, he has our deepest thanks and appreciation for this rare find. To my ears, this is the finest audience recording of the 1994 European Tour. 

Show Notes: 
This show was indeed the "Last Bell" to date for Pink Floyd as a group, as this is the final 1994 show that they performed, as well as the last full performance of Dark Side Of The Moon. The show was a benefit for Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and others. The recording is an enjoyable listen from start to finish. 

Technical Notes: 
This is a powerful document that stands on its own, since it is possibly one of the best audience recordings of the 1994 Division Bell Tour. The crowd was rather quiet that night, which contributed to a very decent recording that boasts excellent quality throughout. There is nice mix and balance throughout. The only very minor wart is the short tape flip during the early lead-in to 'Sorrow'; other than that, the show is complete. 

Taper's Comments: 
This was the last of 14 nights that the Floyd performed at Earls Court, London, and the final night of the Division Bell tour--and as of today, the last time that Pink Floyd played live. During the run of the shows, the metal heads from the Division Bell album and CD cover were on the top of the entrance overhang at the front of Earls Court, so as you came out of the tube station, they just loomed above you--they were huge! The stone heads from the cassette cover, equally huge, were inside the foyer just behind one of the VW Golf Pink Floyd cars that had been produced--I guess it was one of the 30 Golfs that were imported into the UK. 

I had got a ticket for this night because my ticket for the second night (13/10/94) was in Stand 8 which had collapsed on the opening night of the Earls Court shows (12/10/94). The two stands that collapsed weren’t replaced until the 17th I think, which was the rescheduled date for the show cancelled on the 12th. I couldn’t make that night--had to be back at work--but I was given a full refund AND a ticket exchange. The only show for which they had tickets left was for the last night, and I jumped at the chance. So this was a free show for 
me ;-) 

The show was recorded on my old Aiwa personal stereo with an Aiwa mic that came with it. It was the one that I used for quite a few of the '94 shows. The mic was a small stereo mic, which was clipped to the peak of a Pink Floyd tour baseball cap. My seat was about midway back on the right hand side, on the first block that rose from the floor--Block 6. 

Whereas most of the '94 shows had the huge silver construction in the centre of the stadiums that included the mixing desk and the glitter ball, at Earls Court that wasn’t there. The glitter ball was suspended from the ceiling and was, in effect, upside down. When it came down and opened up, the effect was far better than at any other venue that I saw the show. As during the Wall shows, the ceiling had loads of flags hanging down--this time with the various head emblems that were on the artwork rather than the hammers. Apparently they were there to help the sound! 

For me, this was the best '94 show that I saw, the performance of DSOTM was great, and the band seemed to really enjoy the show. Dave also embellished on quite a few tunes--'Sorrow', 'Run Like Hell' and 'One Of These Days'. There was a much lighter mood in the arena. The shows following the stand collapse had a tense atmosphere, and the performances were very staid and workmanlike, whereas this seemed to be a very relaxed performance. 

Dave’s comment at the end was one that he used a few times: “We’ll see you again one of these days,” which seemed true at the time as there were rumours of a European tour in '95-like they had done in '89 after the MLOR World Tour. At the very end of the show, after the encore and during the applause, the three backing singers appeared on stage dressed in cleaning maid outfits and brooms and swept Dave, Nick and Rick off the stage. 

On leaving the arena, all I really noticed was that three banks of four searchlights--one at each side of Earls Court and one on the roof--were shining their very powerful lights into the clear London sky, as people made bleating noises as we were herded down into the tube station. Enjoy the show! JCE, 30/01/03

10. Long Highway

This is the first show of the On every street tour.
Very good sounding and complete recording of this first concert of the On every street world tour 1991-1992. The concert itself is very interesting because of the rarely performed songs like Iron hand, Portobelle belle, I think I love you too much, Setting me up, Wild theme (rare as a 1991 version!), The long highway and of course because it's the very first concert of the tour. This is the first ever live performance of The long highway and has an ending that is very different from the one of the Golden heart tour. Also a very rare part during Money for nothing: the song opens with the solo & drums and while that goes on and on, Mark Knopfler introduces the whole band before starting with the lyrics. Very cool and never done again after this concert! Highly recommended show!

I only have one request, that you don't take these files and post them on other torrent sites. I have many shows to upload. I will upload, let them get seeded by others and after a majority have downloaded the files completely, remove my files so I can seed something new. I prefer to manage my own shows on DIME and The Traders Den. I will upload to other sites when I wish to for select shows. Thanks for honoring my wishes in advance. 

This is “CBG Classic Master Video Series Vol.26”. 

So it is the summer of 1988 and I have filmed some pretty good shows to this point and was branching out to other cities too. No more were the days of thinking I could only film in Springfield, MA or New Haven, CT and that is it. The press release in the spring was that the Monsters of Rock stadium festival tour was coming to North America for the first time on a more extensive tour than it traveled through Europe in the past. Then the word was Van Halen would be headlining with Scorpions, Dokken, Metallica and Kingdom Come. I had already filmed David Lee Roth a few times at this point and this would be my chance to get one of my all-time favorite guitarists Eddie Van Halen and favorite bands Van Halen. The tour started in Miami, Florida at the Orange Bowl and my friend Ryan filmed 4 of the 5 bands and mailed them to me immediately so I could watch them before I went to go see them. The tour dates would go from Miami to Tampa, then Washington DC and Philadelphia. I was only in Philadelphia for one other show to this point, and that was in 1982 at JFK Stadium to see The WHO’s so called farewell tour. So when the Monsters of Rock tour was announced at the same JFK Stadium, I thought of my last trip there and decided to make the drive and attempt the first Monsters show in the northeast. 

It was a long ride down I-95 for 4 and a half hours and it was a very hot summer day. It was a Saturday and I drove past the stadium looking to park and most everyone appeared to be inside by this point when I arrived. It had to be over 90 degrees F, probably something like 97F and I am wearing long pants and a jean jacket that was lined for winter. I don’t know why I just didn’t buy an unlined jean jacket to use for the sole purpose of getting the camera strapped on my back into shows in the summer, but I didn’t. I parked way down a side street on the west side of the VET / Spectrum / JFK Stadium sports complex where there were housing developments. By the time I walked to the stadium, I was sweating profusely on the forehead, chest and down my arms. Like streaming water. I had to stand out like an odd ball, and thought if you want to search someone, I would be the one to search. I will never forget this,…as I walk towards the stadium entrances on one side, there are dudes with no shirts and wearing only shorts and they look sunburned and parched from the whole day in the sun and I am bundled up like a snowstorm is coming!! There is no one going into the stadium at this point. Everyone is in. The Scorpions are playing as I can hear from outside. One last time wiping the sweat off my brow and I walk up to one entrance through the maze of metal barricades that guide you in a zig-zag motion to the entrance. I am the only one going through. I come to the door and there is like an army of yellow shirted security guys and women. Maybe 30 security people all amassed there at that entrance just inside under the shade of the stadium concrete drinking water bottles and sweating from the heat. They all look well done! And here I am with a ticket in my hand and a camcorder strapped to my back with all the accessories and a winter type coat on and not one of them questions it. Nobody says ‘search him’. No comments to me about it being really hot (which it was) and I am wearing a coat!? No, the security man attending the entrance gate looks at me and I hold the coat open to him and he takes and tears my ticket stub and says have a good time. That is it! Unreal. They were searching people I can guarantee it when they opened the doors and most everyone entered. But not me. Not the one guy in the whole stadium you wanted to search. I started to feel the brotherly love. Thanks Philly! I go on inside as quick as I could and go up the side of the metal bench seats on one side of the stadium and sit. Time to get this jacket and camera off my back. It was bright daylight and the Scorpions were playing. I don’t know what people thought around me as I took my shirt off and this backpack was on my back of sacks and camera stuff. I took it off and put it on the floor and just cooled off for a little while. 

I then assembled the camera, which would entail putting on the removable 8 inch long eyepiece, attaching the 4 inch external microphone, attaching the 3 inch diameter 2x magnification lens, sliding on the removable hand grip that was about 6” by 3 inches, inserting a 5 inch battery into the hand grip, inserting a blank 8mm tape into the camera. They I would put the 3 other spare batteries and extra blank 8mm tape into my pockets. It was a lot of equipment. What was stupid of me was that at this time, I didn’t use a black t-shirt to cover the camera. I just stood and held this massive (18 inches x 8 inches x 4 inches camcorder to my face and filmed. It was pretty intimidating to those around me. People would say ‘how the heck did you get that in?’. I would tell them ‘in my coat’. And they would say ‘I was frisked all over’ and look at me in amazement. Well, I had the camera all together and went to a position on the right side facing the stage within the crowd on those old metal benches and waited. Shows in Philly at this stadium always started earlier than most other shows on the east coast. When I saw The WHO there in 1982, Santana went on at 12 noon and The Clash went on at like 1:30 and then The WHO at 3pm. The show was over at like 5:30pm. The WHO played in total sunshine, something they didn’t do at all on that 1982 farewell tour. 

Well, this Monsters show also started earlier than most and Van Halen played in daylight for the beginning of the show. It was June, and some of the longest days of the year are at that time, but the show started earlier also. I remember moving one time during the show a little lower on the side. You could see the NFL Philadelphia Eagles practice bubble behind the stage as I filmed. I don’t remember much about this show (as I am writing this before I watch the produced DVD from Silver Stallion) other than I did have some issues filming along the way. I will have to see what those are when I watch it in its entirety for the first time. We are covering those spots with slo-mo footage of the show just to remove black screen from the video and make it a little more enjoyable to watch. I do remember filming with that camera to my face standing in the daylight and feeling so out in the open. I was up some 20 rows off the floor but the angle looked like I was level with the stage. The JFK Stadium was a very flat open bowl. So I was something like 50 yard line and to the right side which looked somewhat straight on for the video. I do also remember the MTV contest winner being brought up on stage for a song, the girl won an opportunity to be onstage with Van Halen. But I do not remember much else. That is why I film, because you can relive the day that was some 26 years ago and have a better recollection than a memory. It was great to add EVH to my list of accomplishments as this is one of my favorite guitarists. And being able to film Van Halen for the first time also made the trip all the way down to Philly worth it. It gives you a nice boost of adrenaline to make that long dark drive home up I-95 after the show. To me, like it must be for sports athletes, there is nothing like that boost of energy you get walking out the door after a successful night filming one of your favorite bands. This show was also one of those foundation building blocks that gave me the confidence to make the long trek to a stadium or arena that I never thought I could film in and branch out across the northeast (and beyond) to attempt filming the bands I loved so much. So, enjoy the Mighty Van Halen at the ‘old and gone’ JFK Stadium in Philadelphia, my first VH film! CBG5150 Posted to DIME 2014-10-17. 

In the comments below, I have attached 2 pictures of the Ricoh R-600 (same spec as Sony CCD-V5) 8mm camcorder with all of the accessories that I used to strap on my back in sacks to give you an idea of the size and quantity of the hardware that would need to be brought into a typical show to film it in 1988. There is also a short video at the end of the Van Halen Giants Stadium 1988 DVD that I posted on DIME that shows the camera hardware as well. I also put the Canon ES5000 handycam, which is about 6 inches long and 4 inches high into the picture as well so you can look at a comparison to a typical handycam of the 1990's to relate to. The 2x magnification lens in the picture is the smaller one I bought to replace the original that was used to film this Philly VH show. I guess I threw out the old one or it is packed away in some box as a historical relic. The eyepiece that is flipped up on the camera would also dismount like the hand grip next to the camera, but I left it attached to the camera for the picture. The hand grip would take the batteries, which as you can see, I would bring in 4 separate 5" long, 1.5" wide and 1" thick batteries that lasted 40-45 min each. Also, pictured is the AIWA CM-30A external microphone I would use to get better sound than the camera mic. What is not pictured is the extra 8mm tape and sometimes a dummy 8mm tape that could be used to give to security as 'the tape' if I were to be caught and try to somehow keep my filmed on tape without the security knowing. So, all of this hardware would be strapped on my back and I would go into a show and assemble it on the floor (people would look at me thinking I was about to do something bad or say to me WTF?, how'd you get all that in?). Then I would stand and hold that to my face steady and film without putting a black-t-shirt over it. It was crazy and I probably could have took better precautions, but I did it my way. I stood and filmed just about every show I did. I didn't sit and put the camera on my knee to steady it. I tried to shoot over people and not look for the few places I could be in the front row of a balcony to get a clean shot. I tried to find that myself within the people all standing around me in a section as I stood and filmed.

Notes by the uploader:
There've been various versions of the radio broadcast of this show, some I've see were a)silver cd bootleg(incomplete?), b)FM broadcast with Land/Gloria missing, c)FM Radio(mono DAT recording but more complete), d)FM Radio, and there've probably been various edits using these recordings. Here's another, this one recorded from satellite... 

As well as getting a load of free German TV channels on the Astra satellite each channel also had alternate audio tracks carrying radio stations. I had 2 phono leads running from the satellite receiver to my hifi so I could make recordings of the radio shows. 

On 12th Oct 1996 NDR2 broadcast a 54 minute shortened version of this show (consisting of tracks 1-6,12-14,16... I think. I rubbed out the titles of side 2 of the cassette to make way for the new version so I'm not 100% certain of 12,13,14). On 1st Nov 1997 NDR2 broadcast a 100 minute version, with a break for the news after the first 55 min. I recorded on a c120 so I wouldn't have to miss anything while turning the tape, then copied this onto two 60's, so what you get here is 1st gen. The first 25 min (tracks 1-5) are from the 1996 broadcast (this is where the extra talk parts are - after people Have The Power and after Summer Cannibals) and the rest is from the 1997 broadcast. (There's a DJ announcement lasting 7 seconds after Dancing Barefoot which more than likely wasn't present in the 2nd broadcast). I left the DJ announcement as he is talking over audience applause and it's only 7 seconds so it's no big deal, but I removed the other DJ announcements at the start and end of each hour as they were very polite and didn't talk over the beginning or end as sometimes happens so it was easy to remove them without losing anything. 

In the spectral view it cuts off at around 15000Hz. I checked one of the FM sources (the 2nd link in the contrast clause up at the top) and it has the same cutoff point, so presumably that's typical for this station. You can also see a little line that's a 16k carrier wave in the part recorded in 1997, but weirdly it's not present in the part recorded from the 1996 broadcast. 

Crystal Ship was the final song of the broadcast, but in line with other recordings (and the correct order proven by an audience recording) I've moved it to it's proper place with small crossfades. Nothing else has been touched apart from removing a click 0:22 into Beneath The Southern Cross, and another click 1:20 into About A Boy. 

It sounds like there's a bit of clipping/distortion in a few drumbeats in part of Free Money, but on examination of the wave there are peaks that are higher than the distorted drumbeats and yet are not distorted, so the problem must be with the broadcast. Probably the guy on the soundboard had a fader set too high or something, but the sound guy is pretty fast in fixing things and it quickly goes right. (I also noticed some distorted drumbeats in Because The Night & Land which again don't last long.)

Booklet text: 
1980 found Frank Zappa at an interesting point. He had not released a single record that year, having released five (yes FIVE) records in 1979, including the triomphant "Joe's Garage, Acts I, II & III". A tour of the USA and Europe for March through July of that year had been booked, though with a smaller band than usual, including Arthur Barrow on bass, Ike Willis on guitar and vocals, Ray White on guitar and vocals, and Tommy Mars on keys. Vinnie Colaiuta, Zappa's most recent (and perhaps greatest) drummer,- had reportedly attempted to squeeze a raise out of Frank (a big no-no), and as a result was replaced at the last minute by David Logeman, a Berklee graduate who beat out 54 candidates for the gig, and did an admirable job considering the impossible shoes he had to fill. 
The repertoire consisted largely of tunes that would comprise the "You Are What You Is" album, which would be recorded back in Los Angeles after the tour's conclusion (featuring "Sirat Abuse" by newcomer Steve Vai, who was not yet a part of the band during this tour). 11 songs in total were performed from that as-yet unrecorded LP, accompanied by a generous helping of "Joe's garage" tracks (which did much to highlight Colaiuta's absence) as well as some Zappa staples. 
The gig at the Ahoy in Rotterdam was only the second gig of the European leg of the tour, followinll approximately 36 dates throughout the States. In "The Real Frank Zappa Book", Frank described the Ahoy as "a charming sort of Dutch indoor bicycle racing grena with a concrete floor and a bankod wooden track all around the room." The show itself was typical of the tour: opening with a heavy guitar number, in this case "Chunga's Revenge" (which alternated the opening slot with "Watermelon In Easter Hay" and "Treacherous Cretins"), then launching into a couple tracks from "Joe's Garage": "Keep lt Greasy" and a gorgeous "Outside Now". Soon after, the band launches into a massive suite of tracks from the future "You Are What You Is", before heading back in time to "Cosmik Debris", then even farther back with "You Didn't Try To Call Me" and "I Ain't Got No Heart", concluding the trip down memory lane with the doo-wop track "Love of My Life" from "Cruising With Ruben and the Jets". The rest of the gig would rely on relatively current tracks, including pre-release versions of what would be the title track from the new record, as well as "I Dont Wanna Get Drafted", followed by more from "Joe's Garage" and "Sheik Yerbouti". "The Illinois Enema Bandit" ended the show, sung, as it always should be, by the incomparable Ray White. 
Having been broadcast by Dutch radio, this show was soon widely circulated on bootleg, including "Personality" on LP, and "Boot the Beats", a copy of that LP on CD, however both of these releases were in mono. A better, stereo source surfaced in the 90's, released by Take lt Or Leave lt Music as "Ahoy Rotterdam — June 24, 1980" (the date is incorrect). What you have before you now is the definitive version of this show, from two sources seamlessly edited together to present the music as it should be, devoid of DJ interruptions, radio bumpers, or tape flips. Enjoy this glimpse into Zappa's past as he looked into the future, towards what would be perhaps his most important decade for changing 
the world: the 1980s.

Don't Get Got Get Hot

This uncensored late-night Radio Virginia, holy quality high, hot shit sick show, last shined its slut kiss girl upon DIME way back in 2006, only 8 long tall miss missing years ago.

But then the classic "Live Through This" has been out for twenty years now, and yet where is the major celebration, the retrospective rerelease, the live shows, demos and demons, the public bowing and scraping inside a hole-shaped box of memories and mammaries, dreams and screams of discovery of the mysteries of misery and mastery.

these are all shared together because it was all part of a few 1994 days of Sting in New Jersey and NY area and the Grammy Awards, featuring one of his most popular albums, "Ten Summoner's Tales".
two different master recordings were used to put this together due to some issues with both recordings. for example the cassette missed the end of roxanne and beginning of shape of my heart, and the radio outro after St. Augustine (which makes a good disc break point) so the reel copy was used for those 2 songs and the 1st one which cut off the first notes of the show. unfortunately there is still a short gap in the middle of seven days, from the broadcast. otherwise this appears to be the full NJ concert from the WW1 broadcast. apparently they come from 2 different re-broadcasts on the same radio station and using the same reciever. these tapes have almost never been played since being recorded.
