    Looking forward to the T.Waits release. If Godfather (or any silver label for that matter) is reading this: the Tom Waits Bremen, Germany 1977 radio show, released by Great Dane many years ago, has just surfaced as a pre-FM master. Hint, hint..

    Given Sigma’s reputation so far and that the Hollywood Bowl show has been described as having “AMAZING SOUND” quality, whereas the Frisco show has been described as having even “TRULY AMAZING SOUND”, I highly doubt that Sigma would use one of those considerably inferior sources. But I tend to curiously wonder exactly what they mean by “new” source for the former show, as it could be the same one supposedly used by Blue Café for their recently-released “Complete Crackers” 2-pro-CD-R, which I haven’t heard, or maybe it could be one of the other better ones that have surfaced since Sigma released “Damn Braces, Bless Relaxes” a few years ago when they were Sirené. Sadly but not surprisingly, the latter show is still missing the ‘Saucerful of Secrets’ encore that was supposedly performed that night.

    I’d say Sigma 32 is a pretty good deal if it’s priced right. But the quality of some of the Hollywood Bowl tapes are pretty bad. Quality with me can be an issue.

    The inclusion of an upgraded version the the 23rd show in San Fran as a 5th (and 6th if the entire show can be located) disc would have made Sigma 32 perfect. Most likely the missing 2 songs were never captured, or a better and more complete source has yet to be found, otherwise I’m sure Sigma would have included it. Still looks like a great title though. Unfortunately I can’t ‘toss’ Sirene-046 yet.

    So, is the Sigma 32 release 2 full shows on a 4 disc set? I’m excited about the new source for the Hollywood Bowl show; but not happy about not having the option to purchase just one of the shows.
