Prettier Oswego (JEMS) Back


Welcome back to the second in a planned series of releases from the ER
Archives, the collection of an active ’70s taper and trader who
stepped away from collecting, leaving his tapes pretty much dormant
until now. We’re still culling through the archive, but it is already
clear that it contains previously uncirculated shows as well as
upgrades to circulating tapes, both audience and soundboard. ER used
high-end tape decks and good tape, so his copies of even well-known
shows may well be improvements.

This installment falls squarely into the “upgrades” category as it
offers a material enhancement over the previously marginal recording
in circulation of Oswego, NY, December 16, 1975.

The extant version, which circulates as Pretty Oswego, suffers from
several problems including being pitched too fast, sounding muffled
from generational loss and having cuts. This new version has been
speed checked and corrected and is more complete. As a result it runs
longer than Pretty Oswego. The clarity of this transfer is far
superior to its predecessor as well–the recording has body, space and
instrument separation that just wasn’t there before and it sits
comfortably next to some of the better (though perhaps not best)
audies from 1975. Hence Prettier Oswego. Also, cuts previously found
in “Pretty Flamingo” and “Detroit Medley” are gone, though there is a
tiny piece missing near the end of an epic “Kitty’s Back.”

The pitch issues with this show proved deceptive as there are songs,
like “Saint in the City,” that are played at such a breakneck pace
they felt like they still must be running too fast after we pitch
corrected. But you’ll hear that even as the band seems to be in
overdrive, Bruce’s vocals sound right on key.

Oswego is a strong show, a few weeks removed from the band’s quick
trip to Europe and 13 days removed from the two-night run at the
Boston Music Hall JEMS presented earlier this year from Steve Hopkins’
master tapes. The quality here isn’t at Hopkins’ level, but it is
highly listenable both on quieter material like the piano-opening
“Thunder Road” and the solo encore “For You,” and rollicking passages
like “Kitty’s Back” and “Detroit Medley.” Samples provided.

Thanks to the ER Archive for opening up the vault doors and sharing
this recording with the fans. Feel free to let him know how you feel
in the comments.

When the ER Archive returns, we will shuffle off to Buffalo.

Last Tango in Philly 31.12.1975


Last Tango in Philly 31.12.1975

Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band played several time in Philadelphia during the 1975. This is the bootleg of the latest concert, December 31st.

Thanks to EV2 for the great job!


Title: Last Tango In Philly <—-
‘Label’: Ev2
Format: 1CD
Source: Soundboard / Multitrack
Date: December 31, 1975.
Location: The Tower Theatre, Philadelphia (Upper Darby), PA.

Removed some cuts, edited audio (was surprisingly flat originally).

– Edited from uber series vol. 33
— Thanks to TD, and the übergoober for sharing this great show – hope there will be many more to come.

From the original info: 
At first blush, this tape might seem a bit ho hum as a complete
soundboard recording of the 12/31/75 show has been in circulation
for years (as are other nights from the same stand). But make no
mistake, you have never heard this before.

The previously circulating soundboard (generally attributed to be
sourced from the late, great Ed Sciaky) was recorded live to
two-track, likely on cassette or perhaps reel, and it sounds a lot
like other ’75 board sources. But it turns out a multi-track
recording was also made on 12/31/75, and in early 1976 those
multi-tracks were mixed down to stereo for consideration of a live
album that never happened.

These nine songs are taken directly from the 1976 production reels
of those mixes and offer what is arguably the finest live recording
of the era. Undoubtedly, the official Hammersmith release sounds
great, but it was mixed in 2005, not 1976. If you thought
Springsteen was in your living room on the WGOE session, the entire
E Street Band is there this time.
