"Here Comes the Rain King" Silver Disc
August 1, 1997 @ Merriweather Post Pavilion
Columbia, MD USA

Source: SBD>SilverCD>Ripped using EAC

This is from the CD "Here Comes the Rain King" which I just acquired. It's a pre-fm recording, yet appears to be the same recording that was broadcast in the FM version except much cleaner. The speed is also different from the FM version because the FM broadcast was sped up. This however (IMO) is slowed down a little from the original. It may be that the SBD recording was sped up all together, and whoever found it tried to slow it back down but went a little too far. Not sure exactly what the deal is. Simon's db didn't mention this copy of this show, so I wanted to share it on here in case it never was.

The tracks on the CD were labeled funny, so I've listed them as they were and added the actual song names next to it. I took images of the CD and artwork as well and added them to the folder.


Tracklist
01 Gone (Angels Of The Silences)
02 Seen Me (Have You Seen Me Lately?)
03 Rain King
04 Elizabeth (Goodnight Elisabeth)
05 In Bloom (Children In Bloom)
06 Anna Begins
07 She's All Right (Mercury)
08 Rock and Roll Star (CD Cover lists 08 & 09 separately, but they are one track - Mr. Jones)
09 Omaha
10 Baltimore (Raining In Baltimore)
11 Satellites (Recovering the Satellites)
12 Daylight Fading
13 Not Sleeping (I'm Not Sleeping)
14 Murder of One
15 Around Here (Round Here - Cuts out 1:46 in)


Note: it's missing the last 2 songs of the setlist (A Long December & Walkaways).

Hey Chris, give me your opinion on this. I decided to try to matrix together the FM and SBD versions of this show (only did Omaha so far). It's turned out the be a huge pain in the *** since one is sped way and the other one way -- so I have to adjust the speed first just to be able to sync them... and then had some phase issues to fix. But they compliment each other great EQ wise, because the FM's wetter w/ more audience, & the SBD has clearer vocals + more bass. I don't know if anyone has tried to make a matrix of a CC show before (like a SBD/AUD matrix possibly)?

So tell me what you think of this. Here's Omaha, I think it sounds really great thus far :)

I'll give this a listen.

I'm not aware of any other Matrixes... there's not many shows where a SBD and AUD exist to even try it. 4/14/94 and 4/26/02 are two that come to mind, and there's probably a few others (more if you toss in the Live CC SBDs).

Yeah, the one that came to mind to me was Barton Hall 11/17/02. I only have the SBD recording but Simon's list has a B+ AUD. I'm sure there's a few others like that.

Finally sat down to give this a good listen. I think this sounds really good! Nice balance of being clear with some crowd feel.

Thanks, I've done about half the show so far. I think it bumps it from about an A- to an A or A+. When I finish doing the whole show I'll share it here.

Hey Andy!  How's it hanging?


Apparently I haven't retired.....and my membership of this fine community is still intact!
I've been lurking in the background for the past few years. Work commitments and me not liking the new CC material much kind of put paid to frequent visits. But those early albums and shows......they kept bringing me back here from time to time.


Young Mr. Stewart was thankfully quite persistent in contacting me to ask if I could help out with the shared drive concept.
I couldn't say no!
