Hello All,

Is anyone familiar with the 1978 Adelaide concert on the 11th of the 11th...Does anyone know if there is a soundboard or partial soundboard doing the rounds or at anytime in the past. I ask because I have picked up a nine track cd supposedly of this concert which sounds very much like a soundboard recording.
I am no expert but it does sound very crystal clear. It's entitled The Speed of Life, the tracks were not in order and mislabelled (By person who ripped it). I have tried to contact a person about analysing this for me but he has yet to respond.
I am aware that there is an Uxbridge recording of this but I do not posess a copy to compare it with.
Some guidance on this topic would be handy.

Regards.
PB.

I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring.

There's a number of issues of the Speed of Life, it's a very good audience recording been around for years. Here is a not from Bassmans old site

THE SPEED OF LIFE
Label & nr: RAVEN / CANYON RECORDS DB 6142 A/B
Cover: insert Records: 1 LP Released: 1979
Venue: Adelaide, Oval Cricket Ground 11.11.78.
Bonus: none

SONGS: FIVE YEARS / SOUL LOVE / STAR / HANG ON TO YOURSELF / ZIGGY STARDUST / SUFFRAGETTE CITY / ALABAMA SONG / STATION TO STATION / STAY / REBEL REBEL.

COMMENTS: This is an American disc, and the records that came with the insert with the picture of Bowie in a raincoat are the original ones. The insert with Bowie in a T-shirt is an home-made one from Australia. The original pressing had three kinds of labels, RAVEN, CANYON and the "Ziggy" picture labels. This goes for the LP KISS YOU IN THE RAIN (1979) and the LP FOREVER YOURS (1979) as well. I even have this album with TMQ labels! The sound quality is very good, and it's a pity that the entire concert wasn't released.

Cheers Steveboy,

You are right about two things, sounds great and sounds like a vinyl rip. As quoted on the sleeve it is MCDS 07 99B and yes in a raincoat. So someone is sitting on an excellent recording of perhaps the whole concert. How does this compare sound wise to your Uxbridge release.

PB.

Hi there P.B.
I'm all over the Adelaide 1978 show....i'm pretty sure I actually still have the original tape of the Adelaide show, albeit only 1 tape (the first) of 2 :(
It's not what I would call a particularly good recording to be honest....the same guy went around Australia and taped the Melbourne show ("kiss you in the rain", because of the rain) and Sydney ("forever yours";)....the Melbourne show became a 1LP, because of recording issues, as did Adelaide (lots of crowd talking at the beginning) however the Sydney show became 2LP, and is the far superior recording of any of the other Australian recorded shows.

I raised the Sydney show here a few weeks ago, that one definitely needs an upgrade, and would LOVE to know where that original tape ended up??

I'm sure all 3 shows are up here on BS....if i recall there was a major pressing flaw on the Sydney 2LP, side 4 from memory?? The Adelaide show (1LP version) has been repressed numerous times (I have about 4 versions on vinyl) only a few years ago an Italian mob repressed it on colored vinyl in a very impressive gatefold sleeve, again, just using the 10 tracks, from Five Years onwards.

So basically, if you think the Adelaide show sounds good, you really need to listen to the (full) Sydney show....just my opinion...cheers

Steve, Speed Of Life isn't on the Uxbridge 2CD release of Adelaide '78.
Not on my copy, anyway!
(confused now)

EDIT:
Ah - I see, now I read the thread properly! 'Speed Of Life' is not the song, but the title of a vinyl boot. I get it. Doh!
To my ears, there is no way on Gods Earth the Uxbridge of 11/11/78 is a soundboard - no way at all. It's quite distant sounding with a hell of a lot of audience overspill too.

What has been discovered is that in the opinion of NeilWilkes guru extrordinaire I may have stumbled upon an incomplete monitor board recording, it's being prepared then I will upload it here in due course.

@Steveboy, the 24/96 version you sent me sounds muddier than the Speed of Life copy I have. it's different I think.
