Producers Notes:

This show from near the end of the Exit Stage Left tour features a preview of "Subdivisions", which would appear on the subsequent album "Signals".? The drum and guitar parts are very slightly different from the recorded version, and the guitar solo hasn't been defined yet.? Otherwise, the setlist is similar to the Moving Pictures tour.

This source has been produced on CD many times by many people over the years, with widely varying quality.? This 2nd generation tape was fairly well-preserved but suffered from some of the same problems as all the others - a bit of distortion in the high frequencies which causes the cymbals to feel harsh and some sibilance on the vocals, and occasional changes in channel balance and volume.? Still, it's the best sounding copy that I have been able to find after several years of searching, and I have spent lots of time correcting the volume/balance issues and repairing the tape flips and glitches.? I think you'll like it better than any of the commonly traded versions of this show.

Thanks to Rick at Daletona Studios for the artwork. This is his first contribution to a Sirius release, and he did a great job.? Released to The Alien Shore message board on May 13, 2005

This show is one of my favorites, and when I heard about this release I knew I needed a copy. The show is definitely an upgrade to Tempest and Hartford '81. I always thought Tempest and Hartford '81 were a little muddy (bass heavy). PP has more clarity and has a better EQ mix IMHO. It is a little harsh in the high end but that is probably the result of the general high end problems with the show mentioned in the producers notes. If you enjoy this show it is worth your time to find a copy of PP.   (2005-05-23)

Its been a while since I listened to any of the other sources of this show, but being a home show it stands out in my mind, and this seemed to be a nice upgrade to the other versions of it! And The Camera Eye!   (2005-07-25)

This recording has a slight bit of bright hiss throughout, but it's not very bothersome. It gets a bit worse during about tracks 2-4 on disc 1. It has a quick fade-in at the start of the show (2112) that almost feels like the very beginning is missing. Other than that, it's a gem. I really think it's better than a 6 that someone else gave it.   (2006-02-13)


Before I rant, I should say that I don't have the technical knowledge most people here seem to have. I just listen to the music. I'm also brand new to the trading arena and have virtually no experience RoIOs of any band. You can now stop reading if you don't want the opinion of a rank neophyte. That having been said, I'm not sure I'm listening to the same show the other reviewrs are, or maybe I have a REALLY bad version. This show sounds like GARBAGE. To me, it is almost unlistenable. I'm now listening to "Camera Eye" and on this track as well as the first 6, there are: numerous drop outs; static-like noise throughout that sounds like it was recorded off an AM broadcast in the middle of Montana; either Alex and Geddy, or both, sound they are inside a tin can, the mix is moving all over the place like somebody's kid was playing with the soundboard; etc. I think this show is junk, pure and simple. If this is what passes for good, my time in RoIO world will be very short indeed. I am so bitterly disappointed, becasue this is the 1 tour I REALLY wanted. Contrast this w/ the "St. Loius 80 Remaster". If this show is like 8.5, the St. Louis is about 57,498. I welcome responses. Please tell me what an idiot I am; an unsophisticated rube; a ignorant moron. I'm now listening to YYZ, and it is getting even worse. ARRRRRRGH!!!!    (2008-09-16)
