The whole concert (material from their first album "Unrest") was played without a break.There are two parts because of the tape change.

I've got this from trades in the late 70's on one side of a C-120 cassette tape(unknown generation).
In the early 90's I saved it on a C-90 chrome tape.

Quality is B-/C+

"I must admit I think that Robert Wyatt's voice... comes as close as anything to a universal cure-all." John Peel

I'm posting these two sets because they appear to be different from other Henry Cow torrents currently available at DaD. Over the years I acquired several versions of these shows in tape trades. I don't remember where these came from, but they're the best I have in terms of sound quality. I'd rate them B+ to A-. Expect tape hiss.
This recording of the Paris concert is not as clean as the torrent recently seeded by Avantprog (http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=57861). But both of these shows sounds quite close to the source tape and are very rich tonally. Personally, I prefer the fuller levels of this recording.

Fabulous & essential.

*****
NB: Most of my recordings were received as tape or cd-r trades. I can't vouch for the source or generation of any recording not made by me and marked as being copied from the "Master" (this is not one). Sound quality is a qualitative judgement.

The mighty Henry Cow live in France during the "In Praise Of Learning Period".
A relatively short performance but this was a festival appearance so I assume it's complete.
Sound is reasonably good for a 1975 audience recording although the bass is quite high in the mix and the vocals sometimes get a little lost.
However, the performance is (in my opinion) very pleasing.

Fixed stereo balance, reduced right channel by 5%
Fixed varying balance within tracks
Fixed varying volume levels within tracks
Noise print NR, worked really well
Removed tuning > false starts (2.32min) between tracks 08 & 09
Applied slight treble EQ
Cross-mixed tracks (80:20), more stable stereo image, instruments / voice clearer
Cross-faded tracks for smooth transitions and eliminate silences

---------- ---------- -----

As I had run out of great Dime Henry Cow stuff to remaster, I decided to turn my hand to one my boots and it has turned out to be one of my best! It was a labour of love, as yoou can see from the amount of editing, but listening to the difference between this and the original is amazing, as is the peformance itself.

The resident Dime experts say this has been posted here before, so if you already have it, then this is still a great upgrade, so for you and listeners new...

...I hope you enjoy this as much as I now do.

Stereo ?SBD trade tape

Trade tape > Computer WAV > TLH v2.4.1 > FLAC 8 > DIME > you
Big thanks to the original taper, and to the trader (paperhead?) who hooked me up with a copy.
I originally mastered this 2009-06-16.
This one was promised long ago back in the Henry Cow flood days, now I can fulfill it.
I did some compensation for a flawed source, see the Notes below for more details; beyond that, just track marks
This FLAC fileset comes from WAVs from this dub, which only needed SBE corrections in TLH; no CD-Rs or EACs.

NOTES

SBD? - there's clapping, but it sounds quite distant from the recording source
- - - -
It's a very hissy tape, and there's weird sounding spots where the left/right focus pans.
I dunno if one of the source tapes along the way got wrinkled or something.
- - - -
This is definitely *NOT* the Chaumont 1976-11-25 performance; for Chaumont, Dagmar introduces Living.
In this, it sounds like someone speaking french just before that piece begins.
I used that speaking & start of the piece as one of the samples.
And since there was questions about the location, I made 3 different samples to help in your downloading decision.
- - - -
I actually had 2 source tapes for this same show - the 'paperhead' tape and the 'Zorch' tape; both were laden with hiss.
The Zorch tape had less highs and clarity / normal looking levels / played a bit fast.
The paperhead tape had more highs / a left channel about half the right & low levels overall / played at the right speed.
The content was identical - same start point with lead-in hiss, same cut near the beginning of Living, same Living ending cut off point.
(FYI, both tapes did note the same city / date, both did not note the venue; I got the venue from Calyx & the boxset.)

I went with the paperhead tape, knowing I could compensate for its deficiency by rebalancing it a bit.
I recorded the source at a 100-to-41 left-right ratio; and then did an overall 6db boost of both channels.
When you look at the final WAVs the left still looks low, but the channel peaks DO cross each other properly like a balanced stereo source would.

This would likely sound really really nice with some NR if done right, but I did not touch that.
(If someone wants to give it a go, feel free.)

Despite the hiss, it sounds pretty good for such an old tape, and the performance is top-notch.
- - - -
Calyx site says about this date:
*****
November
[18] Nancy (France), Salle Rencontres (Concert ATEM)
Setlist: Improvisation, "Erk Gah", "No More Songs", "Ruins", "Bittern Stom Over Ulm", Improv, "The March" // "Beautiful As The Moon...", free, "...Terrible As An Army With Banners", "Living In The Heart Of The Beast"
*****
This looks like the tail end of this show, starting from Beautiful on, tho Living is cut after 17+mins.
Hey, it's all I got, and you see from the details above that at least 2 other folks only had that much too.
Come join the club, until we find something better.
- - - -
Crank it up and ENJOY! it as I have, and share it so others can hear it.
- - - -
Filenames have numbers on the end that are the TIMES (ex. - "...-359" is 3min59sec long).
One filename has "CO" in the name, as a colon isn't allowed in names.

I mark the start of tracks when the music or count-in begins, not the talking about it before it starts.

This is an edited / remastered post, with the encouragement of original poster 'avantprog', of a Henry Cow Concert, probably from Chaumont as the Nancy (Nov 18) set list was slightly different according to comments made by 'numediaman' in the orginal post.

The original version was a difficult listen as the original info file acknowledged that the levels were 'a little low in the mix', so I edited and remastered initially for my own interest. The music is absolutely untouched, so those that have the original and do their own editing need read no further...

What I discovered was a real jewel - the quality is pretty good, Dagmar seems to be on great form and it features what is possibly the only full version I have ever come across (with lyrics as confirmed from the Tim Hodgkinson 'Each to his Own Thoughts' CD) of the infamous 'Hold to the Zero Burn, Imagine', possibly still called 'Erk Gah' at this time.

The other medleys of Ruins and Beautiful as the Moon are also different to versions that I've heard on other posts, so overall this set is now probably one of my very favourites and I thought others might like the benefit of my editing work...

... Enjoy!!

This is the first of the so-so Cow recordings I spoke of.
This is a great show, with a good balance of songs to improvisations, There's a proto-Art Bears tune, done instrumentally, a spirited cover of "No More Songs", and "Would You Prefer Us To Lie" which was later performed
by various Greaves/Blegvad ensembles.

On to the sonics.......
I got a lot of these tapes from traders in Italy in the early 80's.
Whomever recorded/duped these tapes liked to play recording engineer and frequently the tunes fade in or out at the beginning and end, sometimes the running order has been changed, and a few have analog static, probably from a bad dubbing cable at some point.
I've tried to compensate for obvious flaws or edits, but mostly I left the sonics alone.

There were 3 tape flips. I made fairly seamless crossfades on track 4 and 6, track 8 was missing a few secs, so that edit is quite noticeable.

OK, enough with the Tortoise for a while. Here we go with, uh... Hey, it's the 4th of July, right? OK, here's some music by communists who want to overthrow everything America stands for! Yay!

This is Henry Cow together with the Mike Westbrook Brass Band in an ad hoc assemblage called I believe "The Orckestra", or something like that. Most of the repertoire is either from the Westbrook band or original, though a couple Cow standards sneak in towards the middle of the first set.
An interesting curiosity, to say the least.
Incidentally, if you guys don't mind another request- I know there's a 100 minute FM broadcast of the Trondheim, Norway 26 May 1976 Cow show out there. I have a 90 minute tape of it, and it's pretty interesting, but is of course cut and the quality could be better, so I don't want to rip it myself. If anybody has this and wants to rip it, I'd be most appreciative...

..anyway, more Cow (with Dagmar, no less) coming soon!

Stereo AUD trade tape

Trade tape > Computer WAV > TLH v2.4.1 > FLAC 8 > DIME > you
Big thanks to the original taper, and to the trader (paperhead) who hooked me up with a copy.
I originally mastered this 2009-11-28.
This one was promised long ago back in the Henry Cow flood days, now I can fulfill it.
This FLAC fileset comes from WAVs from this dub, which only needed SBE corrections in TLH; no CD-Rs or EACs.
The pieces on the second disc here were low in the right channel & I bumped it up 2db to try to balance it out.
That same side also had some occasional light tick sounds, and I removed them where I could (about 2 dozen); I may have missed a couple.
Besides that, all I did was place track marks before each piece.

NOTES

It's not the best sounding show, but it IS a very, very fine performance.
There's hiss, and some cuts here & there, but overall it's very listenable.
(If anyone can improve it, feel free to give it a shot.)

I did pretty good, but I'm missing some of the titles.
PLEASE make additions / corrections as necessary & post them to this torrent so all can see 'em, thanks!

- - - -

For the longest time, I'd thought something was wrong about the tape that is the source for this performance.
As I got it, the tape had a loud crowd on side ONE, and a mellow one on side two; I wondered if it's really all one show?
Finally, when doing a final master & seeing the times of the sides, I got it - someone REVERSED the sides along the way.
(Meaning, my side one was really the end of the show, and side two the start.)
But there were no audible clues such as the same recognizable piece repeated a little bit for the tape flip edit.
(This batch of HC source tapes from this trader typically didn't have overlap to help in editing the sides together.)
Anyway, so as presented here, things are back in what I think is the proper sequence.

- - - -

A lot of shorter pieces in the beginning of the set, and some longer ones towards the end.
The main body of the show is intact save for a tape flip cut.
From the completion of Jackie-ing on, the crowd is absolutely boisterous, & that seems to spur the group on.
There are some unlabeled edits near the end, pauses for what may be crowd cheers for encores.
BUT it seems the group goes along with that & improvs to the time-beat of the crowd.
Some of that starts out track 203 which eventually morphs into Teenbeat (there's a couple of edits or pauses during this part).
Later, the audience breaks out into a loud chant (hoping for another encore?), and Chris Cutler is banging on things in time with them.
The fade-out at the end is on the source.

- - - -

Anyway, it's a great gig, & after finally sorting it out, I'm happy to be able to share it with you.

- - - -

Crank it up and ENJOY! it as I have, and share it so others can hear it.

205) Industry, Again (6:33)
Total time 39' 51"

Notes:
1. sound is overall good, at times a little too much talking around the microphone
2. the group were probably still learning Falling Away - they have to stop twice and resume because everybody was going their own way (at the end Fred says "quelques petits problèmes" = a few minor problems). And in any case this is still work-in-progress, as the studio version is slightly different in some spots. Also Industry is different in some places from the studio version. And it too is played so badly that the group decides to close (?) the gig playing it again (Fred says it's because the first time was a disaster).
3. At times (On the Raft, Falling Away) I have the impression that there are two saxophones and the organ playing at the same time - could there be another saxophone player? Could it be Ann-Marie Roelofs (who also played saxello)? I can't hear any trombone. Could it be Dave Chambers (who played some gigs during this 1978 tour)?
4. Industry fades out towards the end, the "Theme from Ruins" in Suite No.3 fades in. Slice is cut just after the middle. The untitled composition in track 9 (a theme based on a repeated bass line that was used regularly in 1977 and 1978) is recognisable but here only the last few seconds remain.
5. This recording is important because of the work-in-progress versions of 'Falling Away' and 'Industry', and because of the Suite No.4 that is a new (and brilliant) assembly of well-known themes.

"Half The Sky" [intro] / "Falling Away", Improvisation, "Waking Against Sleep",
Woodwind Piece, "Industry", "Look Back", "Ruins" (Variations), "Fanfare", Improvisation, "Slice"

I tryed to identify the title tracks checking this show also with the "Cervia show on July 13,1978",
that I uploaded last week (see the torrent:http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=137645)

enjoy the music...

notes:

any help to compile a correct setlist it would be appreciated

strange:
---------- --
at the end of track 9 the audience calls out the band and the following track starts suddenly, it's only half a minute and really seems too little for an encore, so there could be a recording delay;
btw also the audience seems to be surprise at the end of the show, so...who knows?

usual stuff:
---------- --
don't transfer to MP3 or other lossy media trade only, don't sell it, don't boot it!!!!

Note: This was the third concert of Henry Cow reunion tour. After the date of Forlì, the group is broken down to London for the last farewell to Lindsay Cooper. All together they have scattered the ashes in the Thames. Ashes that Sally Potter, partner of Lindsay, kept in her house

Area Sismica presenta l’eccezionale riunificazione di una band che ha avuto un impatto epocale tra il ‘68 e il ’78 e che ha modificato radicalmente gli stilemi compositivi di buona parte della musica che ascoltiamo tutt’ora, gli HENRY COW, il cui ultimo concerto si è tenuto nel luglio del 1978.

Nati dall’incontro tra Fred Frith e Tim Hodgkinson alla Cambridge University e con Chris Cutler e Lindsay Cooper come elementi stabili, la formazione si è via via evoluta.
E proprio alla fagottista/oboista Lindsay Cooper, a distanza di un anno dalla sua prematura scomparsa, è dedicato questo progetto.
Questa triste ricorrenza ha fatto si che tutti i membri della band abbiano trovato il modo di liberarsi dagli innumerevoli impegni, che non hanno mai permesso la reunion richiesta a gran voce da pubblico e critica.

In un’epoca di grandi trasformazioni sociali, i membri degli Henry Cow hanno vissuto la loro vita artistica senza compromessi, rifuggendo dalle logiche commerciali che stavano dietro al mondo discografico e dai promoter dei concerti, che hanno tradito fin da subito lo spirito di qualsiasi elemento di rottura che muoveva e muove ogni forma d’arte.
Questa loro radicalità non ha comunque evitato un impatto notevole in termini globali. La popolarità raggiunta è stata sfruttata dalla band per contagiare altre formazioni in questa lotta che prese il nome di Rock In Opposition.
Sull’onda del RIO nacquero gruppi musicali in tutto il mondo, quali Art Zoyd, Univers Zero, Zamla Mammaz Manna, Aksaq Maboul, Etron Fou LeLouBlan (ai quali Area Sismica dedicò il suo primo festival) e gli italiani Stormy Six.

I componenti del gruppo, una volta terminata l’esperienza con la band, hanno intrapreso percorsi che li ha portati ai vertici della musica attuale, alimentando ulteriormente il mito degli Henry Cow.
Ad esempio Fred Frith ha dato origine a progetti fondamentali, quali Art Bears, Massacre, Skeleton Crew, Keep the Dog, Tense Serenity, the Fred Frith Guitar Quartet, Eye to Ear e ha composto per Arditti Quartet, Asko Ensemble, Ensemble Modern, ROVA Sax Quartet, Arte Quartett e tanti altri.
Ha tutt’ora un’attività musicale frenetica nei 5 continenti, oltre che essere docente al Mills College di Oakland (California) e all’Accademia Musicale di Basilea (Svizzera).
Chris Cutler, oltre a proseguire nella carriera in qualità di musicista – come ad esempio con i superlativi Cassiber, Art Bears, News from Babel, Pere Ubu e brevemente nei Gong – è una figura fondamentale per tutti gli ambiti contemporanei per aver fondato l’etichetta indipendente Recommended Records, tra le più importanti label attualmente in attività.
Anche Tim Hodgkinson ha mantenuto un’attività di grande rilievo, collaborando con Lol Coxhill, Tom Cora, John Zorn, Evan Parker, Catherine Jauniaux, Charles Hayward, ecc. e creando formazioni quali K-Space e Konk Pack e innumerevoli progetti legati all’improvvisazione musicale.

Ci limitiamo a citare questi tre membri fondamentali degli Henry Cow, ai quali si sommano le esperienze chilometriche di tutti gli altri musicisti che nella serata del 23 novembre ridaranno vita a:

LINDSAY COOPER’S MUSIC FOR FILMS (1982- 1986)
NEWS FROM BABEL (1984 – 1986)
OH MOSCOW (1987 -1993)
oltre che ai già citati HENRY COW (1968 – 1978)

Questo progetto non è da vedere come una ripartenza della band, è un vero e proprio episodio unico, aumentando la portata dell’evento, già storico di per sé.

Area Sismica proporrà a Forlì uno dei tre eventi previsti (gli altri due accadranno in Inghilterra) e attesi da così tanto tempo.
Un bellissimo suggello sulla nostra venticinquennale attività.

Questo evento è dedicato a Pierantonio Pezzinga.

The whole concert (material from their first album "Unrest") was played without a break.There are two parts because of the tape change.

I've got this from trades in the late 70's on one side of a C-120 cassette tape(unknown generation).
In the early 90's I saved it on a C-90 chrome tape.

Quality is B-/C+

I'm posting these two sets because they appear to be different from other Henry Cow torrents currently available at DaD. Over the years I acquired several versions of these shows in tape trades. I don't remember where these came from, but they're the best I have in terms of sound quality. I'd rate them B+ to A-. Expect tape hiss.
This recording of the Paris concert is not as clean as the torrent recently seeded by Avantprog (http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=57861). But both of these shows sounds quite close to the source tape and are very rich tonally. Personally, I prefer the fuller levels of this recording.

Fabulous & essential.

NB: Most of my recordings were received as tape or cd-r trades. I can't vouch for the source or generation of any recording not made by me and marked as being copied from the "Master" (this is not one). Sound quality is a qualitative judgement.

The mighty Henry Cow live in France during the "In Praise Of Learning Period".
A relatively short performance but this was a festival appearance so I assume it's complete.
Sound is reasonably good for a 1975 audience recording although the bass is quite high in the mix and the vocals sometimes get a little lost.
However, the performance is (in my opinion) very pleasing.

Noise print NR, worked really well
Removed tuning > false starts (2.32min) between tracks 08 & 09

As I had run out of great Dime Henry Cow stuff to remaster, I decided to turn my hand to one my boots and it has turned out to be one of my best! It was a labour of love, as yoou can see from the amount of editing, but listening to the difference between this and the original is amazing, as is the peformance itself.

The resident Dime experts say this has been posted here before, so if you already have it, then this is still a great upgrade, so for you and listeners new...

Stereo ?SBD trade tape

Trade tape > Computer WAV > TLH v2.4.1 > FLAC 8 > DIME > you
Big thanks to the original taper, and to the trader (paperhead?) who hooked me up with a copy.
I originally mastered this 2009-06-16.
This one was promised long ago back in the Henry Cow flood days, now I can fulfill it.
I did some compensation for a flawed source, see the Notes below for more details; beyond that, just track marks
This FLAC fileset comes from WAVs from this dub, which only needed SBE corrections in TLH; no CD-Rs or EACs.

NOTES

SBD? - there's clapping, but it sounds quite distant from the recording source
- - - -
It's a very hissy tape, and there's weird sounding spots where the left/right focus pans.
I dunno if one of the source tapes along the way got wrinkled or something.
- - - -
This is definitely *NOT* the Chaumont 1976-11-25 performance; for Chaumont, Dagmar introduces Living.
In this, it sounds like someone speaking french just before that piece begins.
I used that speaking & start of the piece as one of the samples.
And since there was questions about the location, I made 3 different samples to help in your downloading decision.
- - - -
I actually had 2 source tapes for this same show - the 'paperhead' tape and the 'Zorch' tape; both were laden with hiss.
The Zorch tape had less highs and clarity / normal looking levels / played a bit fast.
The paperhead tape had more highs / a left channel about half the right & low levels overall / played at the right speed.
The content was identical - same start point with lead-in hiss, same cut near the beginning of Living, same Living ending cut off point.
(FYI, both tapes did note the same city / date, both did not note the venue; I got the venue from Calyx & the boxset.)

I went with the paperhead tape, knowing I could compensate for its deficiency by rebalancing it a bit.
I recorded the source at a 100-to-41 left-right ratio; and then did an overall 6db boost of both channels.
When you look at the final WAVs the left still looks low, but the channel peaks DO cross each other properly like a balanced stereo source would.

This would likely sound really really nice with some NR if done right, but I did not touch that.
(If someone wants to give it a go, feel free.)

Despite the hiss, it sounds pretty good for such an old tape, and the performance is top-notch.
- - - -
Calyx site says about this date:
*****
November
[18] Nancy (France), Salle Rencontres (Concert ATEM)
Setlist: Improvisation, "Erk Gah", "No More Songs", "Ruins", "Bittern Stom Over Ulm", Improv, "The March" // "Beautiful As The Moon...", free, "...Terrible As An Army With Banners", "Living In The Heart Of The Beast"
*****
This looks like the tail end of this show, starting from Beautiful on, tho Living is cut after 17+mins.
Hey, it's all I got, and you see from the details above that at least 2 other folks only had that much too.
Come join the club, until we find something better.
- - - -
Crank it up and ENJOY! it as I have, and share it so others can hear it.
- - - -
Filenames have numbers on the end that are the TIMES (ex. - "...-359" is 3min59sec long).
One filename has "CO" in the name, as a colon isn't allowed in names.

I mark the start of tracks when the music or count-in begins, not the talking about it before it starts.

This is an edited / remastered post, with the encouragement of original poster 'avantprog', of a Henry Cow Concert, probably from Chaumont as the Nancy (Nov 18) set list was slightly different according to comments made by 'numediaman' in the orginal post.

The original version was a difficult listen as the original info file acknowledged that the levels were 'a little low in the mix', so I edited and remastered initially for my own interest. The music is absolutely untouched, so those that have the original and do their own editing need read no further...

What I discovered was a real jewel - the quality is pretty good, Dagmar seems to be on great form and it features what is possibly the only full version I have ever come across (with lyrics as confirmed from the Tim Hodgkinson 'Each to his Own Thoughts' CD) of the infamous 'Hold to the Zero Burn, Imagine', possibly still called 'Erk Gah' at this time.

The other medleys of Ruins and Beautiful as the Moon are also different to versions that I've heard on other posts, so overall this set is now probably one of my very favourites and I thought others might like the benefit of my editing work...

... Enjoy!!

This is the first of the so-so Cow recordings I spoke of.
This is a great show, with a good balance of songs to improvisations, There's a proto-Art Bears tune, done instrumentally, a spirited cover of "No More Songs", and "Would You Prefer Us To Lie" which was later performed
by various Greaves/Blegvad ensembles.

On to the sonics.......
I got a lot of these tapes from traders in Italy in the early 80's.
Whomever recorded/duped these tapes liked to play recording engineer and frequently the tunes fade in or out at the beginning and end, sometimes the running order has been changed, and a few have analog static, probably from a bad dubbing cable at some point.
I've tried to compensate for obvious flaws or edits, but mostly I left the sonics alone.

There were 3 tape flips. I made fairly seamless crossfades on track 4 and 6, track 8 was missing a few secs, so that edit is quite noticeable.

OK, enough with the Tortoise for a while. Here we go with, uh... Hey, it's the 4th of July, right? OK, here's some music by communists who want to overthrow everything America stands for! Yay!

This is Henry Cow together with the Mike Westbrook Brass Band in an ad hoc assemblage called I believe "The Orckestra", or something like that. Most of the repertoire is either from the Westbrook band or original, though a couple Cow standards sneak in towards the middle of the first set.
An interesting curiosity, to say the least.
Incidentally, if you guys don't mind another request- I know there's a 100 minute FM broadcast of the Trondheim, Norway 26 May 1976 Cow show out there. I have a 90 minute tape of it, and it's pretty interesting, but is of course cut and the quality could be better, so I don't want to rip it myself. If anybody has this and wants to rip it, I'd be most appreciative...

..anyway, more Cow (with Dagmar, no less) coming soon!

Stereo AUD trade tape

Trade tape > Computer WAV > TLH v2.4.1 > FLAC 8 > DIME > you
Big thanks to the original taper, and to the trader (paperhead) who hooked me up with a copy.
I originally mastered this 2009-11-28.
This one was promised long ago back in the Henry Cow flood days, now I can fulfill it.
This FLAC fileset comes from WAVs from this dub, which only needed SBE corrections in TLH; no CD-Rs or EACs.
The pieces on the second disc here were low in the right channel & I bumped it up 2db to try to balance it out.
That same side also had some occasional light tick sounds, and I removed them where I could (about 2 dozen); I may have missed a couple.
Besides that, all I did was place track marks before each piece.

NOTES

It's not the best sounding show, but it IS a very, very fine performance.
There's hiss, and some cuts here & there, but overall it's very listenable.
(If anyone can improve it, feel free to give it a shot.)

I did pretty good, but I'm missing some of the titles.
PLEASE make additions / corrections as necessary & post them to this torrent so all can see 'em, thanks!

- - - -

For the longest time, I'd thought something was wrong about the tape that is the source for this performance.
As I got it, the tape had a loud crowd on side ONE, and a mellow one on side two; I wondered if it's really all one show?
Finally, when doing a final master & seeing the times of the sides, I got it - someone REVERSED the sides along the way.
(Meaning, my side one was really the end of the show, and side two the start.)
But there were no audible clues such as the same recognizable piece repeated a little bit for the tape flip edit.
(This batch of HC source tapes from this trader typically didn't have overlap to help in editing the sides together.)
Anyway, so as presented here, things are back in what I think is the proper sequence.

- - - -

A lot of shorter pieces in the beginning of the set, and some longer ones towards the end.
The main body of the show is intact save for a tape flip cut.
From the completion of Jackie-ing on, the crowd is absolutely boisterous, & that seems to spur the group on.
There are some unlabeled edits near the end, pauses for what may be crowd cheers for encores.
BUT it seems the group goes along with that & improvs to the time-beat of the crowd.
Some of that starts out track 203 which eventually morphs into Teenbeat (there's a couple of edits or pauses during this part).
Later, the audience breaks out into a loud chant (hoping for another encore?), and Chris Cutler is banging on things in time with them.
The fade-out at the end is on the source.

- - - -

Anyway, it's a great gig, & after finally sorting it out, I'm happy to be able to share it with you.

- - - -

Crank it up and ENJOY! it as I have, and share it so others can hear it.

- - - -

Filenames have numbers on the end that are the TIMES (ex. - "...-359" is 3min59sec long).
One filename has "CO" in the name, as a colon isn't allowed in names.

- - - -

The usual schmack applies here:

Please don't post this anywhere but DIME.
Please retain this original info file data with any reseedings.
Please don't transfer to MP3 or other lossy formats.
Please only trade this with others, don't sell it.
Please support the artists involved by purchasing their official product in massive quantities.

205) Industry, Again (6:33)
Total time 39' 51"

Notes:
1. sound is overall good, at times a little too much talking around the microphone
2. the group were probably still learning Falling Away - they have to stop twice and resume because everybody was going their own way (at the end Fred says "quelques petits problèmes" = a few minor problems). And in any case this is still work-in-progress, as the studio version is slightly different in some spots. Also Industry is different in some places from the studio version. And it too is played so badly that the group decides to close (?) the gig playing it again (Fred says it's because the first time was a disaster).
3. At times (On the Raft, Falling Away) I have the impression that there are two saxophones and the organ playing at the same time - could there be another saxophone player? Could it be Ann-Marie Roelofs (who also played saxello)? I can't hear any trombone. Could it be Dave Chambers (who played some gigs during this 1978 tour)?
4. Industry fades out towards the end, the "Theme from Ruins" in Suite No.3 fades in. Slice is cut just after the middle. The untitled composition in track 9 (a theme based on a repeated bass line that was used regularly in 1977 and 1978) is recognisable but here only the last few seconds remain.
5. This recording is important because of the work-in-progress versions of 'Falling Away' and 'Industry', and because of the Suite No.4 that is a new (and brilliant) assembly of well-known themes.

here is another good show from the Henry Cow - Italian tour in 1978

the following is the typical setlist of the Italian tour as mentioned
in the authoritative Calyx website (http://calyx.club.fr/bands/chrono/henrycow.html)
Italian tour - typical setlist:

"Half The Sky" [intro] / "Falling Away", Improvisation, "Waking Against Sleep",
Woodwind Piece, "Industry", "Look Back", "Ruins" (Variations), "Fanfare", Improvisation, "Slice"

I tryed to identify the title tracks checking this show also with the "Cervia show on July 13,1978",
that I uploaded last week (see the torrent:http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=137645)

enjoy the music...

any help to compile a correct setlist it would be appreciated

strange:
---------- --
at the end of track 9 the audience calls out the band and the following track starts suddenly, it's only half a minute and really seems too little for an encore, so there could be a recording delay;
btw also the audience seems to be surprise at the end of the show, so...who knows?

usual stuff:

Note: This was the third concert of Henry Cow reunion tour. After the date of Forlì, the group is broken down to London for the last farewell to Lindsay Cooper. All together they have scattered the ashes in the Thames. Ashes that Sally Potter, partner of Lindsay, kept in her house

Area Sismica presenta l’eccezionale riunificazione di una band che ha avuto un impatto epocale tra il ‘68 e il ’78 e che ha modificato radicalmente gli stilemi compositivi di buona parte della musica che ascoltiamo tutt’ora, gli HENRY COW, il cui ultimo concerto si è tenuto nel luglio del 1978.

Nati dall’incontro tra Fred Frith e Tim Hodgkinson alla Cambridge University e con Chris Cutler e Lindsay Cooper come elementi stabili, la formazione si è via via evoluta.
E proprio alla fagottista/oboista Lindsay Cooper, a distanza di un anno dalla sua prematura scomparsa, è dedicato questo progetto.
Questa triste ricorrenza ha fatto si che tutti i membri della band abbiano trovato il modo di liberarsi dagli innumerevoli impegni, che non hanno mai permesso la reunion richiesta a gran voce da pubblico e critica.

In un’epoca di grandi trasformazioni sociali, i membri degli Henry Cow hanno vissuto la loro vita artistica senza compromessi, rifuggendo dalle logiche commerciali che stavano dietro al mondo discografico e dai promoter dei concerti, che hanno tradito fin da subito lo spirito di qualsiasi elemento di rottura che muoveva e muove ogni forma d’arte.
Questa loro radicalità non ha comunque evitato un impatto notevole in termini globali. La popolarità raggiunta è stata sfruttata dalla band per contagiare altre formazioni in questa lotta che prese il nome di Rock In Opposition.
Sull’onda del RIO nacquero gruppi musicali in tutto il mondo, quali Art Zoyd, Univers Zero, Zamla Mammaz Manna, Aksaq Maboul, Etron Fou LeLouBlan (ai quali Area Sismica dedicò il suo primo festival) e gli italiani Stormy Six.

I componenti del gruppo, una volta terminata l’esperienza con la band, hanno intrapreso percorsi che li ha portati ai vertici della musica attuale, alimentando ulteriormente il mito degli Henry Cow.
Ad esempio Fred Frith ha dato origine a progetti fondamentali, quali Art Bears, Massacre, Skeleton Crew, Keep the Dog, Tense Serenity, the Fred Frith Guitar Quartet, Eye to Ear e ha composto per Arditti Quartet, Asko Ensemble, Ensemble Modern, ROVA Sax Quartet, Arte Quartett e tanti altri.
Ha tutt’ora un’attività musicale frenetica nei 5 continenti, oltre che essere docente al Mills College di Oakland (California) e all’Accademia Musicale di Basilea (Svizzera).
Chris Cutler, oltre a proseguire nella carriera in qualità di musicista – come ad esempio con i superlativi Cassiber, Art Bears, News from Babel, Pere Ubu e brevemente nei Gong – è una figura fondamentale per tutti gli ambiti contemporanei per aver fondato l’etichetta indipendente Recommended Records, tra le più importanti label attualmente in attività.
Anche Tim Hodgkinson ha mantenuto un’attività di grande rilievo, collaborando con Lol Coxhill, Tom Cora, John Zorn, Evan Parker, Catherine Jauniaux, Charles Hayward, ecc. e creando formazioni quali K-Space e Konk Pack e innumerevoli progetti legati all’improvvisazione musicale.

Ci limitiamo a citare questi tre membri fondamentali degli Henry Cow, ai quali si sommano le esperienze chilometriche di tutti gli altri musicisti che nella serata del 23 novembre ridaranno vita a:

LINDSAY COOPER’S MUSIC FOR FILMS (1982- 1986)
NEWS FROM BABEL (1984 – 1986)
OH MOSCOW (1987 -1993)
oltre che ai già citati HENRY COW (1968 – 1978)

Questo progetto non è da vedere come una ripartenza della band, è un vero e proprio episodio unico, aumentando la portata dell’evento, già storico di per sé.

Area Sismica proporrà a Forlì uno dei tre eventi previsti (gli altri due accadranno in Inghilterra) e attesi da così tanto tempo.
Un bellissimo suggello sulla nostra venticinquennale attività.

Questo evento è dedicato a Pierantonio Pezzinga.

Concert recording of surround sound timescore project at REAL ART WAYS, Hartford CT. A document of musical, unmusical, non musical and extramusical events. Continuous, as played, but tracked to be reprogrammable in keeping with the score concept. Beautiful package. Medium-fi; installation package. - ReR Megacorp

Every few months I receive a CD that I am truly excited about getting sent in for review. Usually it's from a band or performer that I've been following for many years.
Chris Cutler have been very prolific over the years, and I probably have close to everything that he's worked on  from the early Henry Cow to the recent experimental improv stuff  I even have his books and magazine articles. When I first put on this new CD from Ponk Records it immediately reminded me of the Cutler/Frith live album, but with three performers (C.W. Vrtacek playing guitar and Thomas Dimuzio working on the sythesizers) it has a much fuller, more varried sound. Recorded live at a 1993 performance in Connecticut, it was mixed down from 66 to 44 minutes. I carefully listened to this one as is the tradition with *difficult music* and it wasn't until it played completely through that I noticed it was divided up into 25 different *cuts*. The liner notes explained how listeners are encouraged to play this disk on "shuffle play" to create a new listening experience each time. My player doesn't have that option but it's great to find unique CDs like this that truly make use of this new technology. - Factsheet Five

Experimental music in a freeform cacaphonic vein by chris Cutler (from Henry Cow, and Art Bears), Thomas Dimuzio (American synthesist), and C.W.Vrtacek (from Forever Einstein). Utlizing instruments including lowgrade electronics, percussion, radio, digital sampler, analog sythesizer, processors, guitar and ray gun, this trio have produced a 44 minute soundscape that is intriguing as it is unsettling. What first seems to be chaos slowly melts into a flow of modern noise that is far more intellectual than industrial.
The long piece is electronically broken into 25 tracks and the liner notes urge the listener to reprogram their CD player and listen to the tracks in a reshuffled order to keep the music alive with refreshing changes.  Matt Howarth, Sonic Curiosity

Gorizia Jazz 2008 festival
Recorded at Auditorium di via Roma, Gorizia (Italy) on sunday 19 April 2008

I could have filed this set under almost every possible label here on Dime. It was broadcast by a jazz programme, but it includes everything from psychedelia, progressive rock, avantgarde music, improvisation... as you would expect from founding members of Soft Machine, Gong, Henry Cow, Art Bears... and apparently the name of the group is coming off a Sun Ra tune. It is made of two suites (that I divided in smaller fragments) where new and old themes from Allen and Softs constantly merge in some sort of disturbed space rock with glissando guitar.
I frankly prefered their music thirty years ago...
Also included in the folder, marked as track t00, a interesting radio introduction in ITALIAN where Pino Saulo talks briefly about the "Rock In Opposition" movement and warns us about the unsatisfactory quality of this recording (it mainly sounds like a good audience recording...) - this intro runs for 5'13", you can skip downloading it if you don't understand italian.

five unnamed tracks
running time : 54'49" (without radio intro and outro)
with radio intro and outro, it would be 60'30"

FM radio broadcast by "Il Cartellone - Radio 3 Suite Jazz", Radio 3 RAI [third channel of Italian national radio], on thursday 25 June 2009, 22:56 hours.
