Just wondering if anyone could help me out here. My copy of the 1978 Oakland show (which is damn fine) has a horrible trebley hiss. This is normally the sort of problems I'd expect with a poor mp3 compression but it only appears when Roger is hitting some of his cymbals so I was wondering if it was a recording problem? Do all copies have this hiss? Or have I been limbered with a lousy mp3 version?

Thanks fro any help

Apologies for typos above (hits head against brick wall). How do I edit posts?

Oakland 78' is featured on the opera omnia bootleg CD set - the bits of the show featured on my copy aren't hissey - although there is a loud banging noise during some tracks - as I understand it the bootleggers tape machine picked up someone thumping the stage in appreciation .


Hmm, are you sure this isn't Montreal 78?

Whoops, I forgot to reply to the original question! Yeah, I think that's the best it's going to sound... the problems you mention are probably from the source tape.

Cheers guys, I was about to trade with this so wanted to make sure I had a decent copy. It is a great show, one of my favourites from that tour (of the 3 I have anyway, can't exactly claim to be an expert!)

Thanks again

Yeah definitely. I'm always up for a trade! If you post your list then we'll sort something out.

Do you have any of these shows (in non-mp3 form)?

01/04/75 - Budokan
Either Zoom 76 show
Copenhagen 77
04/12/79 - Newcastle
13/02/81 - Tokyo
Either Vienna 82 show
The excellent version of Leeds 82
02/09/84 Birmingham

These are the ones I'm particuarly looking for, but there's a lot of stuff on that list you posted that looks great (puts my list to shame!)
I reckon we should switch to e-mail though so contact me on greggills@yahoo.com and we'll sort something out.
