THE NIGHT WATCH: LIVE AT THE AMSTERDAM CONCERTGEBOUW [NOVEMBER 23rd 1973]
:: Posted by thecapitolcardiff1971 on January 16, 2015
What an absolutely monster recording this is. Over 40 years on the power of the concert is still as fresh as ever. Even the passage of these four decades still canít make it dated. In fact it is still so far out there that I doubt time will ever be able to catch up with it. I know I could bore you by itemising the brilliance of the playing, the clarity of the recording and the appreciation of the audience but hearing is believing. If your collection does not include this cd, buy it and be blessed.Thank you, Robert and KC.

I am glad that David Singleton, the personae "discovered" by the Vicar, has decided to give us a reprieve. The guestbook will do its small part in helping DGM find its audience. I donít think it would be wrong for DS occasionally to answer privately or ignore altogether posts that are obviously clueless, mean-hearted, or otherwise unconstructive. In any case, Excelsior!
The recent turmoil has inspired me to order a raft of non-KC material. One item will certainly be the CD-DVD of the Vicarís Songbook. I listened again (online) and realize that Iím charmed by every song and arrangement. Itís the kind of material that Eleanor Rigby would have recorded, had she lived and had she gotten over her depression to write somewhat more cheerful and peppy songs. And Iíll finally watch all of the Mysterious Case of Billyís G String. Iím not sure Iím as scandalized by lip-synching as the Vicar is, but I enjoy watching the story told by that talented young actor.

Tears are rolling down my cheeks as I write this...
Good to see some actual conversation here. Someone in an earlier post mentioned "engaging the audience". And it works. Looks like updating the diaries is a good way to keep the interest. Heck, I even purchased a Vicar album sight unheard.
I donít know how it works in the UK, but here in the US, a smartly penned letter of complaint with such pointedly delivered chops runs the risk of receiving even more fuckery from offended mortgage collectors. At least thats been my unlucky experience.
So lets get some caption contests going... Iíll try to be nice.

I knew keeping a diary could be cathartic but...
UK arrival of Orpheum...a tale of no consequence...

Sharing a similar experience with an American ícousiní....
In my backwater of the UK I received notification Jan 9 that the CD had been despatched. Unusually itís still not here! My expectation let alone my hope has not been realised.
Oh joy was my thought I may be able to hear it on the day of release. 2 or 3 days is not uncommon for BShed purchases to arrive. I turned green when SS had his on display so early and then to see AK, who frequents the locality, sporting his copy I thought mine must surely be here Weds, latest Thurs? So now weíre here on the 16Jan 10.10am postperson due within next 3 hours...the ache is stronger, but patience & confidence remain.
.......as a lovely foretaste though my DGMInnerKnot order of KCrT14 ordered 18Dec from Hollywood USA was on the table when I got home from a late shift.
Oh what a roCky road we follow.......but how fortunate we are. May our trivial concerns continue to be our greatest.
Looking forward to a very special 2015. Thanks team.
RE: Night Watch Glasgow

fhc339835ís solution is ingenious, but it presumes all owners of the Starless set had previously downloaded the DGM Glasgow show. One of the selling points of the Starless box is that it supplants previous iterations of this same material with a definitive presentation. Iíve bought that Glasgow "Night Watch" twice already (the new set and The Great Deceiver) and I still donít íhaveí it. Iím not insisting that replacement discs be sent out or anything, just give the track away already.
please don't cry!

Please donít cry...Iím sure the new LP isnít THAT bad...
alive at the Orpheum

First listen - I was unsure, but started crying during Sailorís tale
Second listen - other setting, fascinating ConstruKction of Light, crying with Sailorís Tale
Third listen - I like it, still crying... you know
Fourth listen - a lot more to discover, reminding me a lot of double trio 94 in Argentina, this septet deserves more time and will become huge. Definitive arrangement of Sailorís Tale after more than 42 years.
More to listen

Whilst assembling the Starless box (and fixing the left-right channel swaps at most of the gigs and making my own personal cutting additions where tapes run out) to produce use CDís and mp3 for my portable and PC archive, I cut the wav files by myself taking my 2nd purchase of Glasgow when it first showed up on dgmlive.
This works nearly perfectly.
US arrival of Orpheum?
:: Posted by johnfgibson on January 15, 2015
I am riding an ever-increasing wave of excitement in anticipation of the arrival of Live at the Orpheum, similar to the wave I rode in September in anticipation of the live concert in Boston. And oh, what an experience that was! Does anyone know when I might reasonably expect arrival of the disc in the US? Before the wave grows to an unmanageable size, I hope. Eternal gratitude to the band and all involved...
I believe the release date in the USA is January 20th.
