Got my shipping (label created) notification today too.

Hoping this is much better quality than the Live in Japan debacle. Also hoping some kind soul rips this faster than it took for the others.

 
Spaceboy88 is online now

why do these "cabaret metro 93" and "riviera 95" fm rips on bootleg vinyl sound so much better than the "tokyo" archive release?

crowd/ambient/venue noise not completely removed?

i think that's part of it, but i also suspect "headphone mastering" and, to a lesser extent, overall bad decision making using calculators and not your ears.

we're never going to get any late or even mid period full shows because it would take 3 or 4 records. we're probably never going to get any demos because the record company now owns them because of the reissues. radio shows are off limits i would guess because why record a professionally recorded show/session?

ugh this is grim

i don't have good speakers hooked up to my laptop (computer) so all digital content has to be downloaded and then moved to a hard drive and then moved to an Ipod with a DAC it's so tiring

THE RUBANO TAPES have arrived at my home as of today. The wife and children rejoice. Complex emotions abound in our home to know that we are one of the chosen few to own such a priceless piece of historical value, an antiquity for this modern age.

i'm just glad this DOR (digital on record?) company is actually putting in the work when BILLY isn't

who knew bootlegs would be better than the real thing? SP fans in 2022??

I'm still waiting on 3 more UNOFFICIAL BOOTLEG ALBUMS including the fabled MACHINA 2 BOOTLEG UNOFFICIAL ALBUM UNOFFICIAL PRESS

i figure hey if Billy refused to give us the goods, I guess I have to choose other avenues.

It's only money out of my pocket. If he cares or not doesn't give a fuck to me.

We've got some good full shows in the SPLRA pipeline.

Please let me know when everyone receives their rubano tapes record. We're working some early shows.

Am I the only one who doesn't really like earlier/80s Smashing Pumpkins? I'm more interested in stuff from Gish and onwards. Pre-Gish, their sound was all over the place.

I think I would actually be more excited by a remixed Zeitgeist reissue with bonus material than 80s Smashing Pumpkins demos/live show.

I know, blasphemy.

Some of it is ok, but there's a big gap between something like My Dahlia and Sun.

There again, there's a gap between something like Obscured and Hello Kitty Kat.

The 80s stuff is alright, but I wish they'd skip to post-1995 where they were properly recording their shows.

Alabaster is great though.

i go super hard for almost every bands early work but SP is a hard pass for me

you can hear them figuring out what sound to emulate and that bothers me

probably because i love their later work so much i don't want the mystique/calculations to be so obvious

completely same

at least with the newer stuff we could shit on it and have a good time. 80s is just... i do not care, it's totally raw comparatively, just not interesting

Agreed on the second paragraph, but thereís some some real cool 80s stuff thatís worth at least sampling. Obviously There it Goes, think thatís the song Corganís still most proud of from that era. I really like the song My Dahlia, think thatís great. Also a song thatís a bit more elusive called She, which I think is awesome. That one slips through the cracks, definitely check that song out. East and Psychodelic are cool too, definite, definite precursors to their later sound, especially the former which just sounds like a Siamese Dream demo.

Might be nice to have a wee lil 80s Pumpkins comp album like Pisces someday. Just because I know very little about it beyond the few tracks Iíve listed.

But yes agreed I need me my Asheville/Fillmore acoustic residency songs!

You just know if Billy does that it'll be a restrictively expensive vinyl-only release.
