Milan 1982 [no label, 1CD]
Live at the Parco Redecesio, Milan, Italy; July 20, 1982. Very good audience recording? Chicken Shack LP de-clicked.
Thanks to Stranger09 for sharing the tracks at Hunger City. Stranger09 also noted: “This is another one where I feel the recording here captures the band more effectively than the mixing desk and FM shows of the period - even more so in this case.”
Original uploader’s notes:
“Here come the free ones - they’re letting them in free now, finally. With the cops in close pursuit”. (DB)
“OK - it ain’t nothin’ but a house party!” (CF).
This recording is very good quality indeed and stereo.
It is *not* from the same source as the master recently loaded up on Dime - once one gets past/tunes out the immense treble bias and lack of bass on that version they are both recordings of similar quality.
This recording quite possibly passed through a generation of tape before getting to LP - there’s a slight muffling to the sound and the tiniest of hiss, but it’s got a nice feel to it (certainly compared to the master mentioned above) - that warmth I like in a recording. One of the tell tale differences for those who like to split hairs, like me - is the synth sounds after Cities feel closer, and just have, well, more ‘feel’ to them (that word again!).
The vibraphone (?) on Mind in particular sounds great with the ‘feel’ that is found on this recording. Means listening to this version will be more on my ‘Mind’ than the master version, methinks…(as stated in discussions elsewhere despite any opinion I have I welcome masters, pre-FMs - not that my opinion on any of this should matter). Just a shame Mind cuts out.
The weird funk-pop of “My Big Hands (Fall Through The Cracks)” is a masterpiece here.
No processing was carried out on this recording bar the click repair due to the vinyl source.
