I'm never going to understand ebay-psychopathy. Really. -- 8) :)



HAHAHA! I WIN! I bought my copy at BS for $51.46 total - burnt myself a copy (I don't care about packaging, I want THE MUSIC), posted it on Ebay at a BARGAIN opening bid, hoping to attract overseas buyers looking for a sweet deal. The item eventually sold for $70.90 total with S&H(which was $8), and is winging its way to SWEDEN Monday morning.. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I got my money back,plus profit that is immediately being reinvested in BEER!
I understand Ebay-psychopathy perfectly :wink:

For less than $20.00 worth of beer you banished the packaging to Sweden? That will buy me a four pack of North Coast Brewing Co. Old Stock Ale. Great beer but I want to be looking at the packaging, liner notes, etc. while I'm listening to the music and drinking it. I'm sure that I don't understand your psychopathy. You must be one of those under '30's. :mrgreen:

I guess things didn't work out quite as planned with the return home for Christmas and the release of part of the nine LP box set.

They probably were tired, though.

It's not included on the "Who plays what" page of the booklet.

Speaking about Carnegie …

Despite my very positive first impression uttered somewhere here on this forum, I just realized that I haven't listened to it more than two times, and that was months ago. I probably have no intention to listen to it again in the near future.

This time it is because of the quality of the performances. I rather choose Fillmore, JABFLA, YCDTOSA, Playground Psychotics when I want to listen to good live performances by the Flo&Eddie era lineups.

Seems, below the line, that most Vaulternative releases are not for me.

I hear you but personally feel that it's fantastic to be able to hear new stuff from this period. You may like those other versions better but isn't it great to have *more* choices? (You don't have to agree, you're still welcome to your opinion.) :mrgreen:

the band itself sounds really good on both shows, but i did notice howard's voice was a little off the first show, so i can see how you'd prefer the other flo and eddie albums.

i do like this release a lot though. all the jam's and solo's are so good!

Review from allmusic.com of Chicago IV at Carnegie Hall, recorded in the spring of '71 with curious comment about the... acoustics! :)

by Lindsay Planer

After issuing three consecutive studio double LPs, Chicago topped themselves with this four-album live box set. As the title suggests, At Carnegie Hall, Vols. 1-4 (Chicago IV) (1971) finds the band at the venerable New York City venue during a five-night stand (April 5-April 10) in the spring of 1971. The septet -- which includes the respective talents of Terry Kath (lead guitar/vocals), Robert Lamm (keyboards/vocals), Peter Cetera (bass/vocals), Danny Seraphine (drums), Lee Loughnane (trumpet/vocals), James Pankow (trombone), and Walter Parazaider (woodwinds/vocals) -- were at their unquestionable peak of initial popularity. Their previous three double LPs continued extended runs on the pop album chart and likewise spawned a number of hit singles. So by the time the group hit the Big Apple for these shows, they were among the hottest things happening. Chicago's set list is wholly representative of the material from Chicago Transit Authority (1969), Chicago II (1970), and Chicago III (1971) and includes several extended multi-song medleys from each. The band winds its way through muscular versions of the epic "Ballet for a Girl in Buchannon," "Travel Suite," as well as lengthy renderings of deeper cuts such as "South California Purples," "Fancy Colours," and the ten-minute-plus opening "In the Country." One of the set's most notable highlights is the politically charged "For Richard and His Friends." The lengthy and well-jammed-out cut is both groovy and propulsive. However, the acoustics at Carnegie Hall are quite frankly not (and really never have been) properly suited for heavily amplified music. While the percussion and electric guitars are clearly audible, the woodwind and brass section come off sounding extremely thin and devoid of any real timbre. This is unfortunate, as a primary component of the band is the contrasting textures between the two. Enthusiasts seeking a much more sonically accurate portrait should by whatever means necessary locate the Live in Japan 1972 two-CD set -- which also includes tracks from Chicago's fifth effort.

Miles Davis recorded a live album there in 1974, Dark Magus, and members of his group also said Carnegie Hall was not a good venue for an electric band.

I do remember reading about how the members of CTA (especially the horn players) absolutely *hated* the way they sound on IV. That's the nucleus, as I understand, for Live in Japan being released. In my opinion, that release is missing the magic and replacing it with superior sound. Kind of annoying though when they change the lyrics on at least 2 of the tunes to be in Japanese though.

And I didn't even know that 'It's A Beautiful Day' had a live release from there as well - I'll have to check it out, thanks!

I'm a big fan of the Stonybrook tape recorded a few days later, and I was hoping for a performance that was equally as tight. For example, they absolutely nail the Tibetan Memory Trick at Stonybrook, but at Carnegie Hall it comes off rather loose with some sync issues towards the end. Also, Howard references "Guenivere" in the "Suite Judy Blue Eyes" bit at Stonybrook, but at Carnegie it's a less funny "Deja Vu". These things kind of bummed me out. It's still a fun release though. We're spoiled.

Page 49, Circus Magazine, January, 1972.

Zappa's Two-Tune Concert.

Only a Frank Zappa audience could outdo a Grateful Dead crowd when it comes to looking underground. The kids looked about sixteen, very stoned and dressed to undermine the whole concept of formality. The concert was in Carnegie Hall, probably the most respectable auditorium left in New York City since the Fillmore closed. The Persuasions opened the evening. They are five black guys with an a cappella (no instruments, just unaccompanied vocal harmonies), Apollo-type act. Sort of a weird ombination with Zappa. They did oldies like "Speedo" plus some new things, and laced it all together with a running patter. There was no break in the act - they sailed straight through. The six Mothers filed on stage amidst much screaming and enthusiasm. The two Turtles, Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan, who have joined Zappa were up in front with him. They started tuning and before a minute was up, Zappa made an announcement to be patient, they were having trouble with the Moog synthesizer, Mark Volman, who seems to have lost a little weight, took this time to munch on some nuts from a big can he had brought on stage, occasionally tossing a few into the audience. Howie was given a present by a front-row boy. It turned out to be a Barbie doll with wires sticking out of her head, her entire body painted. The kid said it was an inspiration created on an acid trip. Zappa was wearing knit pants and a short- sleeved, purple T-shirt, Mark dressed in his usual white T-shirt and jeans, but removed his T-shirt after the first song (which ran about twenty minutes), revealing all his expansive loveliness. Zappa announced that they usually started with an up-tempo thing but "on this auspicious occasion of the desecration of Carnegie Hall" they would deviate and start with thier German song, sung half in German and half in English. After they completed it, they seemed in no hurry to go on. Frank lit a cigarette, drank some beer, tuned a bit, then announced the next song would be ""Billy the Mountain," which would include singing, dancing and rapping. "Billy the Mountain" lasted half an hour and that was the show. Two songs. The audience screamed and stamped for an encore. Finally Zappa appeared onstage and revealed the fact that by union house rules they couldn't do an encore because it would cost an extra $600.00 in overtime. This brought boos from the audience. "But," said Zappa, "The Mothers will pay the $600.00 out of thier own pockets and do an encore for you." And they did.

and this, on the opposite page

Yoko Gets Her Label On The Mothers?
The Lennon's Snatching candy from the Mother's
'Twas sometime after The Mothers At The Fillmore (Warner Bros.) album had climbed to a respectable position on the charts, then fallen off again and Warner Bros, were clamoring for another Mothers LP Zappa and the gang were none to anxious to drudge in the studio for weeks when there was already a nine record set completed and on its way to the public. So they came up with an idea. Why not make the next LP out of the Fillmore session when John and Yoko had jumped onstage and jammed? Everyone agreed that the session was dynamite, including the Lennon's business manager Allen Klein. In fact Allen felt it was too good to come out as a Mother,s LP. According to a disgruntled Mother, Allen and or the Lennon's are now issuing the tape under the name of the Plastic Ono Band.
