Stick Men (Bootlegs) – 20121124 Auditorium Supercinema, Chieti, Italy

SMB20121124 | released April 05, 2018  | We are now making recordings like this publicly and officially available for purposes of archiving, (our own) historical research, and for your enjoyment as a fan and collector.

Some of these bootleg recordings are of very bad quality, so please check before you buy. Some tracks are streaming to give you a preview of the sound. Although these are unauthorized audience recordings, they have been EQ’ed to provide the best sonic quality possible given the source material.

This is an unauthorized audience recording (by an unknown person) that has been widely shared on the internet without our consent. We are now making recordings like this publicly and officially available for purposes of archiving, (our own) historical research, and for your enjoyment as a fan and collector. Each show is offered for a rather low price and the proceeds from these downloads will get split evenly between Tony, Markus, Pat, and Robert, the four people who worked as a team to make this music come alive.

This audience recording must have been made with a rather bad mp3 recorder, as one can hear the bit crushing, most pronounced on the talking parts. There are also a couple of incomplete tracks. However, the reason that we’re making this available is that this particular concert features some early versions of tracks from the DEEP record incl. a very rare “Italian” version of “Crack in the Sky”, plus an early version of the cover of “Larks’ II”.

We appreciate your interest and your support. We have many audience recordings lined up for this series (unauthorized audience recordings, but also Robert Frazza’s board mixes, as well as many of his multi-track recordings, which still need to get mixed), and we will be adding more in good time.
