Supersister - Live in Baarn & Meerlo (1971/1972, NL, Canterbury)  
Tuesday, October 15, 2019, 07:28 PM - Music, - NL, English
Again not electronic, but a self made cd. This time with live recordings of Supersister, made by Dutch broadcast company VPRO. Some singles are also included.

Two recordings are made at Midsummer Pop Festival in the village of Meerlo, Limburg, the south of the Netherlands. A small two days and a night festival, with all Dutch bands except for one unknown English act: Genesis. Great show.
Oh yeah, and there was Nico, she sung in the middle of the night, so I couldn't sleep.



The major and brass band of Meerlo opened the festival, the boy scouts did the entrance, the horse club the surveillance and the dog shit on my sleeping bag. All very innocent, you could buy all kind of drugs (including cocaine and heroine) all over the place. The festival had to stop halfway the second day because of the heavy rain and thunder.
In Venlo 2001, they showed a documentary about this festival.



On 30:30 you can see a glimpse of Robert Jan Stips.



The photos on the cover are taken on another gig Supersister did in 1971 in the Youth Centre S61 in Roermond (also in Limburg, guess where I come from). I don't remember who made them. I developed the negatives and glued some test prints in my school agenda.

UPDATE:
I found a photo negative where I wrote 'Supersister 9 april 1972, photographer: Tabe Jorritsma'.
The photos are now in the possession of Robert Jan Stips, Tabe gave them to him.

The Crazy world of Arthur Brown - Live at Le Guess Who festival in Utrecht, 2015-11-20 
Friday, November 27, 2015, 11:05 PM - Music, - UK, English
I have to admit: I wasn't expecting too much when I went to the concert of this 73 year old veteran. But I wanted to see this legend one more time.
The last time was in 1972 at the Hammerveld Jazz Festival in Roermond. No special good memories of that performance.

What a relief: the man was in very good shape and so was his voice and band. 'Godverdommer' he shouted at the delirious audience. A smile appeared on my face on the first notes and didn't went away.
I completely forgot to turn on the recorder on my phone, so this recording fades in at the fifth song of the set.

A Certain Ratio - Live Paradiso, Amsterdam, 1980-11-02 
Monday, March 12, 2012, 09:22 PM - Music, - UK, English
From the Valeri vaults.



From the notes:
A fairly rare & classic ACR soundboard from their late 1980 Benelux tour digitised from an unknown gen tape. I've cleaned this up a bit as there was a lot of noise (tape deterioration) over the first three tracks and am quite pleased with the results. The last two (encore) tracks are from an audience recording, and although of pretty messy quality are included for completeness.

unknown gen tape > CDR > EAC > WAV > Cool Edit (norms & splits etc) > FLAC > MP3 (lame hq VBR)

Setlist:
1 Felch
2 Oceans
3 And Then Again
4 Loss
5 Forced Laugh
6 My Spirit
7 Winter Hill
// from audience recording
8 Unknown (encore)
9 Shack Up (encore)
