P1 Missing Seven Minutes Restored
:: Posted by Sid Smith on Sun., Mar 5, 2006

When this gig was first uploaded it was missing seven minutes worth of music – a fact that went unnoticed by all and sundry until the mighty Vargan alerted us to this lamentable omission.  

After digging around in the labyrinthine vaults of DGM, ‘Stormy’ Mundy has found the missing track – a catchy little bolero-based foot-tapper – and returned it to its rightful place as the penultimate number of the first set. 

Anyone who bought the original release should access their accounts and download the complete concert. 

How did such an omission happen in the first place?  Here's how.  

The four Projekct one shows were recorded by David Singleton onto ADATs, which are effectively three VHS video machines linked together. During the first set, there was a problem with one of these tapes - and during the audience applause after the third improv, the tapes were switched off, and set of tapes from a previous night (which still had some unused space) inserted. After this improv - the original set of tapes were put back in for the remainder of the set.

As Alex ‘Stormy’ Mundy was only uploading night four to DGMLive, he hadn't seen the other tapes - one of which is clearly labelled as containing the "penultimate improv from first set night four" - which has now been restored to its rightful place.

But the bizarre feature of all of this is that the "join", where the machines were switched off, the tapes removed and then not used until some seven minutes later, is completely inaudible. The concert that was uploaded had not been doctored. Anyone with the original download (now a collectable item?!) can listen to the join between the fourth and fifth improvs - somewhere there should be an audible "leap" where seven precious minutes were stolen and put onto a different set of tapes. Call us deaf, but we can't hear it.
