  1. this has the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio recording, this is the one right? It's from '84 but they play Limelight from '81 https://rushradio.net/mob_kbfh.php
  2. sorry, which version is this?? I'm guessing you're referring to ESL Video?? Thanks
  3. @By-Tor X-1You know, going back and listening to La Villa Strangiato from Mar 24 and comparing it to ESL and the 'Thank you very much ... huh huuh' thing is identical; I have to wonder if (after all) this song on ESL is indeed from Mar 24 Toronto, I mean the solo differs (some fixes/adjustments were made) ... makes me think -- for Live in YYZ, they were kind of 'forced' to use the Mar 25 version of La Villa Strangiato; i.e. if they used the Mar 24 version it would be the same source as ESL. I haven't done a detailed comparison. (like line them up in Audacity, speed correct and all that), not sure I have time or inclination to do this haha
  4. OK at the beginning of La Villa Strangiato on "Live in YYZ", Alex plays this little ditty, what is that??
  5. From what I can tell, it sounds like the only songs from Mar 25 are 2112, Freewill, Broon's Bane & La Villa Strangiato. All the others all seem to be from the 24th. Whatever other copy-pasting/mistake corrections they did, I think they did a great job with it. It's amazing, everyone sounds great and the performance is just excellent =)
  6. Listening to YYZ from Live in YYZ, and let me tell you, Geddy is killing it. The bass guitar sounds so good. And in the middle is Neil's solo which is just insane -- he is on-fire. You have to listen to this with nice headphones, incredible!
  7. Notes on the liner notes say : Live in YYZ 1981 Recorded live at Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto, ON by Guy Charbonneau using Le Mobile Remote Recording - March 24 & 25, 1981
  8. Apologies, late reply, I had leapt to a conclusion; the ESL liner notes do not mention Toronto. I am now quite embarrassed of trying to compare the boots from Toronto 3/23/81 - 3/25/81 to ESL.
  9. Got it - currently listening to Live in YYZ; and what a pleasure to finally have this recording released officially, having sat in the vault for all these decades!
  10. You're joking, right? DS disc 3 was blasted all to hell - the EQ (on the drums in particular but the mix as a whole) was atrocious and it was absolutely hammered with a compressor that sucked all the life out of it. They tried very, very hard to make it sound like it was recorded in 1996, not 1977. Terry's mix blows it out of the water, there's absolutely no comparing the two. you know, after going back and A-B comparing them again right now, I am noticing details in the Terry mix (ride cymbal) that is drowned out in on Different Stages disc 3..
  11. can you elaborate? Do you think the mix on the drums is lacking? that's fine, I kind of wish the bass drum was more punchy and prominent, but who knows if this was even achievable. I don’t really think he hates Peart - but the drum mixes on the last 3 releases have been lacking, whereas everything else has sounded incredible. I agree with you. So Terry mixed the 40th AFTK, PW and MP. Regarding the Hammersmith Odeon London recording which is on both the 40th AFTK and Different Stages disc 3 ----> in my view the the audio fidelity on Different Stages disc 3 is just so much better sounding.

  13. you can see in ESL he uses an effects pedal for that.
  14. Wow, such iconic guitars, including some which I thought he would keep and pass down to his children. Huh.
  15. Yeah true, and the speed of 2112 from Hemispheres 40th (Offenbach) is also running too slow (~ 2.5%). It's a small thing to some, but I notice such things for some crazy reason! If it's really exclusively Mar 24, we will get a unique perspective on how ESL compares (La Villa). Let's see, maybe it will be mix-matched as you say.
