Comments: This is a soundboard recording of a rehearsal in a small London studio with The Bleeding Heart Band. It is an absolutely clean studio take complete with chatter between and during tracks. This is not the final, full-up rehearsal with all of the artists that appeared in Berlin.

The story: Someone who worked in the post-production studio made a copy of the master tape, or plugged his recorder into the soundboard. He then took a studio stock pre-printed cassette cover and typed the title and date of the rehearsal on it.

The cassette cover reads:
2.5.90 Roger Waters Rehearsals
The Wall Berlin

Preprinted cassette information:
The Town House
Post Production
140 Goldhawk Road, London, along with address and phone number

The studio still exists under a slightly different name.

Special thanks to The Big Pig and The Pentagon Pig at FRP for making this available.

Remastering notes from MOB:

For the main rehearsal (stereo) I worked on track indexing and level adjustments. For the second rehearsal (mono, tracks 10-13 of CD2), I realized that the speed was different from the main rehearsal. By comparing Waiting For The Worms and The Tide Is Turning, I immediately noticed that the second rehearsal ran too slow. My suspicion is that the end of the tape was probably copied by a studio worker from another rehearsal tape, perhaps adding one gen to the lineage. My applied speed correction resulted in a 98% fix. I also applied a very slight EQ to Waiting For The Worms in order to decrease the "bassy" sound and to create a more natural transition between the last track of the main rehearsal (The Tide Is Turning) and the first track of the second rehearsal (Waiting For The Worms). I also did some editing in order to smooth out the abrupt cut during the judge's sentence in The Trial. BTW, I realized that the tape of The Trial that is played during the rehearsal, is not simply the regular version converted to mono. The voices are really mixed upfront and during the judge's sentence, you can hear the orchestra, but not Gilmour's guitars from the official release. I think this is a really unique mix of The Trial, specifically used for these rehearsals.

Geetarz Comments:
Eric Clapton's stint with Roger Waters really was a pivotal turning point in his career. His management was decidely opposed to his appearance as a "sideman", but this collaboration brought out some of EC's finest playing in over 20 years.
The ectours.de site lists the following: "The show was not sold-out, as promotion for the event was sparse, and the Horizon was not at that time the most popular venue for concerts."
I received this CD set in trade years ago, apparently a tape dump onto CD, with no individual tracks.
I extracted it, did some light EQ and noise reduction. The "Pros and Cons" portion of the setlist I tracked as well as I could. Personally (and I know I'm in a minority here), I find it tedious to the extreme so I did the best I could.
It is what it is, not very listenable at times but a worthy document of this tour.

RE-UP: Roger Waters & Eric Clapton live in Stockholm 1984 - 2CD - June 17

Roger Waters - HRV CDR028 - Swedish Neurotica

Isstadion, Stockholm, Sweden / June 17, 1984
Label: Harvested HRV CDR028
Audio Source: Audience recording

Artwork: included

Number of Discs: 2
Disc 1 Running time 64m 31s / Disc 2 Running Time 54m 35s

Back in 1984, Roger did his first solo tour. With Eric Clapton and company in tow, he did 19 dates in June and July of that year.
He would return again in 1985 and do another 17 shows; but this time without Mr. Clapton.
HRV-CDR-028 is an audience recording from June 17, 1984 in Stockholm, Sweden. This being just the second night of his first ever tour with his new band!
It's a goody!
The show seems to be complete. When QAing it, I couldn't see any cuts or patches made. But you never know, Professor Frankentoon has been known to do these sorts of things ;-)
I mention this, because other RoIOs that exist for this date have cuts/patches in Every Stranger's Eyes. Swedish Neurotica has no such problem.
But speaking of problems, there are a couple minor ones to point out. It seems that people were not all in their seats when the show started. The first song has a large amount of "mic movement" noises. Likely caused by these late people pushing past the taper. But that's only for the first song, the rest is clear. Then Roger gets the yips in track 4, you'll see what I mean when you hear it.

Anyway, here's the track lst:

Swedish Neurotica thoughts

Hello all,

Just a few comments on the recent Harvested release, Swedish Neurotica.

First off, the first thing I noticed about the performance it that Roger seems angry for much of the first set, especially during Money and Hey You. It seems as if he had a bit of venom he needed to spit out that night. His vocals are harsh!

To me, Eric Clapton didn't really add much to either set. His guitar work, while not bad by any means, just seems really out of place. His style doesn't mesh well with the Floyd songs, and he seems to go overboard in the +/- set. The one exception is his lead part during If, at least I'm pretty sure it's him, with Roger playing the basic arpeggio. I'm not a huge fan of his, but Clapton's acoustic work has always been one of my favorite traits of his, and it shines here. Also, it gave me chills to hear him harmonizing to Wish You Were Here.

The +/- set isn't anything really special and considering it was the second show of the tour, didn't seem very inspired, either. While I enjoy the musical themes of the album- I often hum them to myself- the fact that the songs aren't your typical songs (as in structure) is a large part why the album isn't near the top of my list of favorites, and the performance doesn't much differ from the album. I did like the Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking song on here better than the album, though- there's more life to it, it doesn't come across as cheesy as the album version. And even back then, Rog lip-synched to ESE.

Highlights of the show for me were Set the Controls, If, and The Gunners Dream.

All in all, a worthy addition to the HRV catalog. It won't be at the top of my list of releases, but it's definitely an interesting and decent listen.
