London Lyceum October 22 1981

Post by davelhc » 10 Jul 2015, 5:27pm

Hi everyone

I've lurked on this forum for a while and have got a lot out of it (particularly the megalist) and thought I'd share this with you:

I did a bit of an EQ job on the Oct 22 '81 Lyceum tape. I love this era of The Clash, and there aren't many good sounding shows from the second half of 1981, when they were (arguably) at their musical peak.

Part 1: http://www.mediafire.com/download/287e3 ... 81_pt1.zip
Part 2: http://www.mediafire.com/download/5pcol ... 81_pt2.zip

This is a top show if you like this period, but I found the tape a bit harsh to listen to, so I brought up the low end and tried to even out some of the harsher frequencies in the mids... I'm no pro but I think i got a decent balance between depth and clarity, I certainly prefer it. It sounds less like it's playing through a phone - the drums and guitars have more impact this way. I used a little compression on the low end but i didn't mess with the dynamics of the show overall. One More Time still sounds murkier than the rest of the gig- I guess they were getting the levels right.

The files are WAVs because I don't have anything that saves as FLAC, but they convert easily enough.

Hope some of you enjoy this - thanks very much for all the work you all do.

I'll leave the links up for a week.

Just to make it clear for the original poster, this was a typo for "repost."

Too late, I've already called the cops.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

I anticipated that response but I was expecting it from Marky. :mrgreen:
