Grande Kielbasa

The original Crystalline release of "A Desperate Voice" is of course one of the best Rush recordings ever, but it had several annoying flaws which have now been corrected.

  1. The original version used the "Three Stooges" intro from the laser disc, which had all kinds of overdubbed noises that weren't used on the 1988 tour. The remaster uses the more appropriate intro from the ASOH CD.
  2. On the original version, there are 68 seconds of "The Rhythm Method" that are missing. This was contained on the ASOH CD but not on the LD. Since both were from the same performance, I have decided to include this on the remaster. Neil's fans will be happy because the first portion of this drum solo was edited out of the CD release, and the end was edited out of the LD release. It is complete here for the first time ever. (Note: from listening to several audience recordings from this tour, two things are apparent: 1)Neil played the drum solo the same each night, as far as the different sections of it are concerned; 2)one of the sections, lasting approximately one minute, is still missing from this performance)
  3. The transitions between the CD and LD portions of the show were poorly done on the original. On the remaster, these transitions are properly crossfaded and are invisible to the listener.
  4. The original was not indexed at the proper frame boundaries, resulting in that annoying click between tracks. This has been completely corrected on the remaster.
  5. A seek and destroy mission was conducted which eliminated numerous other annoying clicks, pops, and static from the original.

This remastered version now runs seamlessly from start to finish like a real concert. Of course, it is still not complete. "Limelight", the 30 second snippet of "Red Lenses", a significant portion of the recorded intros to "2112" and "Distant Early Warning", the clock sounds that precede "Time Stand Still", and 1 minute of "The Rhythm Method" are still missing, leaving this show about 10 minutes short. Nevertheless, this recording is now better than ever and is worth a new listen. Enjoy!    (2001-05-30)

This is the audio portion of the "A Show Of Hands" video. About 3/4 of the HYF concert is represented here, with the highlights being "Prime Mover" and "Territories." This is also my personal favorite version of "The Spirit Of Radio." Alex?s vocals come out very well on this show. As a video feed, this is a soundboard-quality show.    (2001-05-30)
