View Full Version : Audio Recording of Ravinia Show

Another "better than nothing" recording. This recording is full of problems... the levels were super hard to manage where I was (7th Row Center) and not to mention a group of loud-talking chicks came during Turn Your Way and talked through the whole show (when they showed up one of them even tried to argue that I was in her seat).

Anyway, some of these are too quiet, some of them are too bassy... some even have some weird-ass fuzzes and buzzes (may be due to the chick next to me playing on her phone most of the show). I've never had a recording so flawed in my life. But, for the most part, it's listenable so I'm putting it here until someone with better equipment/skills/luck/location posts a less-flawed recording.

Danke.
Again this is an opportunity for bill to do something cool like release the show for download for 9.99 or whatever. Just like pearl jam does.
Hopefully he will.

Thanks - I'm really enjoying the show! And I've heard plenty worse recordings...

I was initially a little disappointed when I saw the setlist online, but the show's quite good. Glad Billy isn't doing too much with his voice in the show

This.

I've been tweeting him here and there telling him that he's gotta sell some audio/video of this thing. Yeah, I know - tweeting at a celeb is like peeing into the wind - but still, somebody's gotta say something.

Thanks for the recording, man. I bet it's getting easier and easier to get gear into shows nowadays, seems like security ain't what it used to be at shows I've been to recently.

did he really play "turn your way"? some versions of the setlist mention "lonely is the name" instead.

Maybe I'm drawing a blank but what is Turn Your Way? It's probably labelled that on a lot of set lists because those are the main lyrics from the chorus of Lonely is the a Name.

i was thinking of that new order song bc sings on, but that's actually called turn my way.
i have honestly no idea what lonely is the name sounds like or what the lyrics are.

Cool As Ice Cream
09-01-2014, 05:26 PM
i've also seen some setlists who give "as time draws near" a different name. but that's also based on lyrics of that song.
i guess it's a case of "i don't know the song, so i'm going to write down the three or four words i can understand as the title."

As Time Draws Near is Prairie Song I think. It's also listed as a Zwan song but as far as I know it was only a part of the Chicago Songs project.

People stole set lists after the Glass House show. One of my friends managed to snag Pajo's. Pretty sure the set list was on Netphoria within an hour of the show being over because I remember coming home and being shocked how fast someone managed to get it up.

The only reason we've heard Lonely is the Name is because that's the song they were working on in the studio when they had a webcam on one day. I don't think it's even been mentioned outside of that chat session.


As Time Draws Near is Prairie Song I think.

No, it was played before Prairie Song. We have a recording. I've heard Prairie Song before, I've never heard of As Time Draws Near before the other night.

That's right, I just remembered Prairie Song was mislabeled on the bootleg circulating and I thought it was that one. It's the one called Follow Me that is Prairie Song.

not to mention a group of loud-talking chicks came during Turn Your Way and talked through the whole show (when they showed up one of them even tried to argue that I was in her seat).

main girl: "i think you need to move down one. is that possible?"

taper: [deadpan] "nope!"

[extreme silence]

other man: "what?"

hats off to you sir.

She is just a non-stop gab machine that is for sure. It sounds like she decided to shut up for a couple songs before the avalanche began again.

Was Chicago Songs a live recording project only, or did he eventually record those in a regular studio? I couldn't care less if he does this shit now but I'll be furious if that finally gets released and it turns out he went all FutureEmbrace on those songs in the studio.

I thought it was a very cool interpretation.

If it's an interpretation than I'm fine with that. There are tons of Pumpkins songs that were changed for the worst live in my opinion. What concerns me is that this is a reflection of changes he made to the Chicago Songs tracks after the initial recordings. The songs were fine as acoustic songs.

I haven't had a chance to listen to the whole set, but I really enjoyed this version of Muzzle! One of my all time favorite songs of theirs. I think this stripped down version of the song and from what I've heard on this just shows he should have stayed with the Chicago songs vein long ago. I don't know if you want to call it acoustic or folky or what - but I think he's much stronger with this style. The recording is really great too! Can't wait to take in the rest of the set.
