The Darker Side Of Rising Sun - Japan 1972 Chronicles [The Godfather Box 24 M/N, 2CD]

Last Gig On The Moon. Live at the Nakanoshima Sports Center, Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan;  March 13, 1972. Very good audience recordings.


The final gig in Japan for 16 years has four known recordings that circulate in varying degrees of completeness, the most popular of these recordings is, for a good reason, it boasts the best recording to surface from the tour but is sadly incomplete as it is missing the last two songs. The recording commonly referred to as source 2 is excellent, well balanced with all instruments and vocals being well balanced, it sounds as if it was recorded very close to the stage and is simply fantastic.

There have been a slew of prior releases of this tape Cold Front (AS 91PF001), The Great Gig On The Moon (Teddy Bear TB 35), Think Pink (Black Cat BC-18), Dark Side Of The Rising Sun (Pigs On The Wing), Dark Side Of The Ice (Highland HL679), Memories Of The East (Sigma 24), and Sapporo 1972 (Sigma 82).

The Dark Side suite is virtually complete, the cut in Brain Damage is patched with the inferior recording found on Sapporo 1972 (Sigma 82) and is referred to as source 1. The quality of source 1 is distant but clear and atmospheric and much better than Kyoto and Sapporo and as with the other patch edits it is seamless.

The bonus tracks on the first disc are also from source 1 and sound a bit clearer than the Sigma 82 versions. The first two songs on the second disc are the excellent source 2 recordings and are on par with the Highland and Sigma versions of the tape. Source 1 is again used for Echoes, again the sound is slightly clearer and more enjoyable. Atom Heart Mother first appeared on Missing Pieces: Japan Tour 1972 (Sigma 34) and Sapporo 1972 (Sigma 82), since there is no supporting evidence either confirming or discrediting the claim of being from this concert its inclusion here makes sense. The recording is distant and muffled and is almost identical to Sigma 82.
