Is that Clapton 2CD “Nagoya 1977” by Tricone some kind of multi-source mix or matrix, or whatever it’s supposed to be called, with at least one of the sources being SBD (soundboard)? That’s what the description of it seems to imply on some site that’s highly popular among members here, but it’s hard to tell for sure, esp. as translations from Japanese text usually seem to come out rather awkward, sometimes even so awkward that it’s rather humorous or funny. So can anybody whatsoever confirm? Thanks to anybody who could. Maybe that “Slowhander” guy in Spain may know?
“Nagoya 1977” is an excellent mono audience recording for its era.
Thanks, but if Tricone didn’t use any of the soundboard recording supposedly available, then that’s somewhat disappointing…esp. as the SBD source is mentioned in the translation of the Japanese text written about the release. However, I decided to go ahead & order it anyway, esp. as it runs approx. 23:43 longer than “Nagoya First Appearance” on the VS label, which I almost bought a couple months/few months ago on eBay, if you remember. Thanks again.
Thanks for the kind words. I wish I had more time. Busy schedules have kept me from reviewing any releases for some time now. I remain hopeful that sometime in the not so distant future that I will be able to contribute more articles (and not just news)…and yes, Axeman, I do like all those artists. Also, special thanks to everyone who contributes, both articles and comments. It is what makes this site so essential to our hobby.
I think that wgpsec/WGPSEC has been doing excellent. And esp. if he likes Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Eric Clapton (incl. bands such as The Yardbirds, John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek & The Dominos, etc., etc.), Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, & The Jimi Hendrix Experience, then that’s even better.
I second that and thank you for your comments, Axeman.
Thanks for this info./news…esp. the Floyd by Sigma.
However, a couple weeks ago, around the time that I received the “Led Zeppelin III Sessions” 2CD on the Wendy label, I seem to remember seeing an ad or something about “In Through the Out Door Sessions” as apparently being the next release by Wendy in their series of Zep studio album sessions, but now, ironically & strangely, I can’t seem to find any evidence of it on the Internet. Has anybody whatsoever seen it or know anything about it? Thanks if you could kindly tell us.
