The Digital Dan
   (Audio - 5.5)

This is sourced from a SVHS copy of the Betamax master video, so the lineage is quite good. Obviously, if you've seen the video, the sound is a bit distant as the show was filmed from the back of the venue. The sound is also mono with limited high end and some hiss given the age of the source and the equipment available at the time. The bass, however, is actually quite nice with good extension and presence. Sound improves as the show goes along, it starts out VG- and within a few songs it improves to a solid VG (perhaps better if you're a forgiving soul). There are a couple of cuts, one near the beginning of "Limelight" and another near the end of "In the Mood". Other than those two cuts, the show is complete without edits. As was often done during the tour, Alex tries singing part of the 2112 intro which is, of course, quite bad and gets some friendly ribbing from Geddy. All in all a good, fun show if not a barely average sounding Signals show. Special thanks to the CBG for procuring this great source. No noise or hiss reduction was used in this production. As with all Digital Reproductions releases, this is for free trade or blank media trade only. Do not Buy, Sell or Distribute for profit. Help keep the spirit of trading alive and well.

Not one of the better sounding Signals show, but the newly obtained 1st Gen SVHS was a good find. The show was filmed by a guy who filmed many bands that came through Montreal in the '80s. The 1st gen SVHS was taken directly from his Betamax master tape in 2002.? The sound of the audio track is decent, with some punch in the mid/bass region, but the fidelity is definitely lacking. There is a constant video hiss that's not too distracting, but definitely noticeable. ? Overall, Signals shows from London, Uniondale and Dayton are still the top recordings from the tour, IMO. This one's probably for the more seasoned listeners/collectors.? I also wanted to mentioned that Geddy's voice seems a bit too 'nasal' in some songs. Although the pitch was checked by few folks and was determined to be fine, I can't get over Geddy's voice sounding too high. (NOV '03)

There was a correction to the date of the show from April 9th to 8th.? On a live recording of the 9th show, Geddy clearly states that it's the 2nd night.? The filmer provided the initial information for this show, but after 20years, failed memory gets the best of us.? Sorry for the mixup.    (2003-10-27)
