Review from Spare Bricks:

Some fans and critics have long labeled Roger Waters 'misogynist', as his lyrical content in The Wall and The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking suggest that women in his life have caused him great harm. Whether it was his mother or his wife, they were castigated as controlling bricks in his personal wall. While The Wall was very blatantly biased against women, Pros and Cons wasn't nearly so, but it got near- universal condemnation for its cover showing a naked woman hitching on the side of the road.

For his first tour apart from Pink Floyd he assembled Eric Clapton's band, basically calling it "Pink Floyd but with Eric Clapton on guitar". He had recruited Slowhand for his bluesy story of betrayal, isolation, and (eventually) redemption. At the time, Clapton wanted a break from being the leader of his own band, preferring to play in the shadows as part of someone else's; he later found the experience "stifling" and only particpated in the first leg of the Pros & Cons tour during 1984, playing nineteen concerts.

Only three performances from this tour were captured by video bootleggers, and all suffer from the limitations of camcorder technology at the time. In 1984, video cameras were a far cry from the palm-sized Handicams of today. The early video bootleggers had very bulky equipment to sneak into the venue, their cameras required quite a bit of light to produce a decent image, and the zoom lenses were very limited at 4-10x. The huge staging for the tour also presented a challenge to the tapers in that there were three large projection screens that depicted a bedroom where the dream occurs and also showed films which told the story of Reg's dream and his family's adventure into the backwoods of Wyoming. These projections weren't bright enough to come across clearly on the video, and thus a good portion of the visual storytelling is hidden from the viewer.

Bootleg videos of this tour have surfaced from East Rutherford (New Jersey), Toronto, and Montreal. Unfortunately, the East Rutherford and Toronto shows were recorded from the side of the stage and didn't offer much view of the projections. The only video filmed from the back of the venue was the July 31, 1984 show at The Forum in Montreal. A typical version of this show on VHS would be extremely dark with very little viewable footage of the backdrop films. There isn't much detail seen in the musicians, due to the distant shot and limitations of the camera. With the advent of computer video editing and correction some of these images could be adjusted, making a slight improvement on the VHS versions that had been in circulation. The result was a bootleg DVD called EC Was Here, released by the veteran PF bootlegging outfit Pigs On The Wing Productions. While this was a functional release, it still left much room for improvement.

Recently, an upgraded version of the Montreal concert entitled The Pros & Cons of Early Bootlegging appeared in the trade circles. The source tape for this show was a major upgrade, as the only S-VHS submaster from the original Beta format camera was cloned to Digital8 tape and used for the new DVD release. The improvement is quite noticeable but the video still does suffer from the technology limitations of the time. The original video was shot hand-held, resulting in some shakiness, so the video was run though 'steady shot' software, resulting in a much smoother video to watch. Some brightness and contrast was added to help bring some detail previously unseen out of the video, however there is still a glowing halo effect around the musicians that apparently couldn't be corrected.

The DVD initially opens to a menu screen that has a background picture of the stage before the concert begins but there is a motion video inlay of the band playing which gives the background a clever appearance of the live concert. Background music is a shortened edit of The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking. The main menu offers the choice of playing the video, going to a song selection menu, viewing a photo slide show, or reading additional information about the DVD. The song selection screen is only one page long with no motion menu or backing audio track and all 24 songs played at the concert are accessible from this screen. The additional info screen lists the original filmer, as well as the person who performed the digital transfer and the DVD authoring. Credits are given to websites where tour information and pictures were acquired. The Photo Slide Show option shows a four-and-a-half minute collection of photographs taken at the concerts, as well as album covers from various album pressings, single sleeves, and bootleg covers. The photos are shown with a backing audio track playing the full version of The Pros & Cons of Hitchhiking.

The full concert is a definite upgrade over previous versions, however it is a shame that a better video of this incredible live spectacle isn't available. This video will give you an idea of the stage presentation but the bottom line is that much of the video is still dark. The audio is from the camera but is able to get a decent recording as the camera was away from the crowds of people who could ruin a recording (like most of the 1977 Floyd audio boots). Overall, I would have to say that despite its flaws this should be a must-have bootleg DVD in any good Waters/Floyd collection. It does represent the best Pros & Cons video from either the 1984 or '85 leg of the tour. Even though you miss quite a bit of the show due to darkness, it is still a vital document for collectors of both Roger Waters and Eric Clapton, and I would definitely recommend this version over EC Was Here.

RE-UP: Roger Waters live in London 2011 - 1DVD9 - May 17

Roger Waters
O2 Arena
London, England
Tuesday, May 17, 2011


*** DVD9 VERSION ***


Once again, similar to Chicago, things worked out in my favor. Djscomics and I had been planning this UK trip for months. I had the task of procuring tickets. I managed to get decent seats for the 14th, 15th, and 18th ahead of time, but could not find anything that I deemed reasonable for the 17th. We decided to simply go to without tickets for the 17th and leave it to fate. The afternoon we arrived, after a long, arduous journey (sleepless 6.5 hour overnight transatlantic flight with a seat that was broken and wouldn't recline a millimeter... carry on bag wouldn't fit completely under seat so already limited legroom cut in half... dragging luggage what seemed miles through Heathrow and then a succession of Tube stations... making a pit stop so I could puke on a Tube platform... dragging luggage another mile along treacherous roads -- look left! no look right! -- to the hotel), we went to the O2 box office to see what was available for the 17th. Amazingly, these lower level seats 12 rows off the floor came up. Even better, when we arrived at the seats that night, I was up against the rail on one side, and the people in front of us only got up once or twice the entire show!

I was thrilled to get such a good filming opportunity. It certainly softened the blow of getting busted the following night (18th).

BTW, we missed the Gilmour show by one day. From the beginning, we planned to see shows #3, 4, 5, and 6. (We incorrectly guessed that Gilmour, if he were to appear, would show in the second half of the run.) It just wasn't meant to be. But we still had a blast regardless and would do it again in a heartbeat.

I would like to thank Kev (djscomics) for his moral support and help with logistics and seeding on this trip. He was my first mentor of sorts, showing me the ropes of taping while on an extended road trip back in 1991 during Yes' Union tour. He was the one to nickname me Tapehead2 (actually Tapehead Too back then; he was the original Tapehead). This trip was a celebration of twenty years of being buddies and fellow music lovers. Kev, you are DA MAN. :-)

So here's the 17th.

It was the most distant sounding recording possible punctuated with the most upfront bursts of tape effects and bits of solos that would suddenly fade up from the distance and back again. Obviously a recording from the back of the room and directly in front of the rear surround speaker stack. The 1st digital transfer of this was poor (distorted & mono). Neonknight was able to arrange a professional transfer of Pacco's tape and this project was on.

Tape Notes:
Recorder 1
This is well recorded and the creative mic positioning worked well. The louder parts and louder guitar leads start to distort the mics and/or tape. This copy has been digitized at only 16 bit, 44.1KHz and had further processing done (digital speed correction and possibly more) at that lower resolution. This exaggerates the distortion and makes for piercing painful listening. There are also artifacts from CD disc errors.

Recorder 2
This is poorly recorded. It is distant enough to be challenging in the first place. The recording is low fidelity with almost no capture of cymbals and other higher frequency details. There are wild speed fluctuations from a failing tape drive. This was digitized at 16 bit, 44.1KHz which does a poor job capturing the remains of sound quality this buried.

Recorder 3
This is well recorded and professionally digitized at 24 bit, 96KHz. You might have to study it for a moment to realize that because it's a recording of the very back of the venue. This captured the ambient sound along with a very discreet recording of the real surround speaker stack. The loudest parts distort the mic/tape a little or maybe the level was set too high for the direct surround parts which were quite loud compared to the ambience here in the back.

All 3 tapes are incomplete and rec1 is missing the entire 2nd half of the 1st set. Rec3 is missing the encore. The performance is complete between all 3 recorders.

Running Time: Approx 15 minutes featuring excerpts of the following songs:

Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun
Careful With That Axe, Eugene
Echoes
Speak To Me
Breathe
On The Run
Time
The Great Gig In The Sky
Money

A big thanks to David Beals for filming the show.

The footage went through a restoration process including color correction, stabilization, dust & dirt removal, scratch reduction, and grain reduction. This was processed as an uncompressed AVI file (1920 x 1080 at 18 fps / 170 GB) which I imported into Vegas Pro 11 for the edit. Since there is no audio from this date I used a recording by Joe Maloney from Boston Music Hall which was 10 days earlier.

In addition to my edit I've also included the raw transferred footage as well.

Special thanks to the Yeeshkul community who contributed funds towards the transfer and for helping with synching suggestions. It's amazing what can turn up after 40 years!
