News & new releases

Led Zeppelin – Live In Japan 1971Led Zeppelin – Live In Japan 1971 (no label) features the famous “929” gig from Festival Hall in Osaka on September 29th, 1971. I am not yet sure of its relevance but with only two discs this release doesn’t contain the whole concert.

Pink Floyd – Electric Factory 1970Pink Floyd – Electric Factory 1970 (Sigma 127) is a 2CD set from the Electric Factory, Philadelphia, PA on September 26th, 1970. This is listed as an upgrade from their prior release, Electric Factory (Sirene-241).

Pink Floyd – Kent State MasterPink Floyd – Kent State Master (Sigma 128) is a single disc from Memorial Gymnasium, Kent State University, Kent, Ohio on March 10th, 1973. This contains only the Dark Side Of The Moon portion while some shops in Japan are offering a complete version on 2CDR as a bonus. Anyone else puzzled why Sigma wouldn’t just release a 2CD version?

Pink Floyd – Nassau Coliseum 1980 Final NightPink Floyd – Nassau Coliseum 1980 Final Night (Sigma 126) is a 2CD set from Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Uniondale, New York on February 28th, 1980. This is a fascinating sounding tape that has been released a few times before from this label as part of Your Favorite Disguise (Sigma 23) and Definitive Wall (Sigma 49). Like some of Sigma’s other recent titles, this is listed as an upgrade and is from “The 24 bit digital transfer from the original master cassette tape”.

  1. Thanks Relayer – I have updated my Sigma list accordingly.

    Thanks Stuart. Yes, I too miss those days. Manchester used to be so worth my while I would take a day off for it (I have worked Saturdays since 1991), and drive the 200 mile round-trip. Used to come home laden down. Then, after the first of the big raids, I went but spent only… 50p. On a CD single. It had cost £2 to get in. The boot dealer at Leeds must have been leaned on – he was a great source. By that time I already had the vinyl I wanted, and the programmes, so without the boots, there was no reason for me to go.

    All that said, Japanese boots then (1990s- early 2000s) were not then the high quality that they are now, and my trusty Sony Discman saved me from buying some right duffers. The European labels held sway then, with Octopus and Kiss The Stone being top for my bands.

    It’s true what they say – everything changes!

  2. Nassau Coliseum 1988 (4CD) Nasau Colliseum, Uniondale, NY , USA 20th August 1988. (SBD) Sigma 120

    JFK Stadium 1987 (4CD) Live at JFK Stadium, Philadelphia, PA. USA 19th September 1987. (Stereo SBD) Sigma 123

    I will be getting the Electric Factory set but will pass on the 2/28/80 show, already have 3 versions and do not need another. I am sure Sigma will release the full Kent state show in a few months, in truly amazing sound, of course.

  3. Don’t be disillusioned guys by the works of Japanese labels. They’re all faked productions ripped straight from torrent sources. I compared most of Sigma and non labelled releases as I got them all in hands in past and 99 percent of them are same as transfers known from multiple free downloadable sources. They even did not remove same tape errors available on original tapes!

    I always thought there’s something worng with them as they were just significantly EQ’d but this always distract my listening experience and after careful comparison I need to say I spent a fortune on something that isn’t worth a penny!

  4. Could anyone tell me what were Sigma 120 and 123, please?

    After a quiet year last year the new titles of interest to me are coming thick and fast. Kent State I shall leave, but am likely to upgrade the Electric Fcatory and Nassau shows. It’s a shame I can’t preview them, to see if it’s a good enough upgrade to justify the expense of duplication, but the life of a collector was ever thus, eh.

    • Gone are the days when you could turn up to the stall of a fair with your own CD walkman and sample a disk before you buy it but then plenty outside of our field would argue that it’s just as easy to download then dump if it’s no good. Rest assured alibi, if I can procure a sample for you to hear, we’ll post one for you.

  5. How disappointing that No Label has run the Led Zepp show short. I’ve been looking for more disks for my collection and the Scorpio version of ‘Smoke Gets In Your Eyes’ seems to be the closest I can get at a price that’s not going to get me in trouble with the boss. In lieu of finding that piece I was hoping this new version might fill the gap however, if it’s the incomplete soundboard I’ll hold my hopes on finding something else.
