Lost And Found - The Story
“Our taper was delighted to witness a wonderful purple day: A unique soundcheck and an excellent show. On a natural high, our taper couldn’t believe what she just witnessed, and - impatiently, while still at the venue - went on to make sure that everything was archived on the DAT. A playback check revealed a truly shocking result: The tape was blank! Frustrated and angered by LOSING such a magical moment, the taper LOST her mind - and later believed that she’d thrown the supposedly blank DAT away at the venue…
Many years later - let’s just say that we let it marinate in the vault for a while - while going thru some dusty boxes of old DATs, up came this strange tape with no label or indication whatsoever. DAT player on, tape popped in, and play… what is that? Sounds like a soundcheck… One Night Alone tour. Wait a minute?! Could it be…? Really, is it possible? New York, New York? This is it!! Wow. FOUND! Silence. This was a moment like holding the Holy Grail in your hand.
Alas, the DAT had a lot of technical errors. The tape was not easily playable, with lots of glitches, drop-outs and diginoise. This most probably led to the “blank” playing at the venue. Our team went the whole nine yards of magnetic tape to bring you a clean and complete transfer, in the quality it deserves - by buying expensive special gear, while ensuring that we wouldn’t destroy the tape in the process...
So here, with big proud, we present: A clear, glitch-free transfer of this historical event for your listening pleasure. We FOUND and uncovered a lost diamond, right here for you. Relive this magical day! A soundcheck full of lengthy, inspired jams and perfect musical collages: Brilliant, exceptional, outstanding, dazzling, marvelous - and most of all: Reloaded.
The beginning of the show is also included on this release, in the same excellent sound quality as the soundcheck. Unfortunately, the reminder of the show is not available in the same quality/from the same source. The hypothesis goes that this is in fact the tape that got LOST at the Sportpaleis. So for that part, we relied on a good and circulating free release, to offer you the complete experience in chronological order. Ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy: The lost and the found.”
