The Tale of the Tapes.

The sixteen concert recordings in this box fall into three basic types: one bootleg (an unofficial audience recording), ten board mixes (recordings of the sound sent to the PA system on the night) and five professional recordings (all by George Chkiantz from a mobile recording studio outside the venue). These last five concerts are presented in both conventional CD resolution and in Blu-Ray high resolution 192 khz.  All have their merits and each has good claim to be the most “realistic”.

The professional multi-track recordings offer the best audio quality. They were originally mixed in 1991 at the time of The Great Deceiver (although only selected parts were included in that box set). At the time, the various mixes were recorded both onto analogue half inch tape and into a Sadie computer system, one of the first digital editors, running on Windows 3.0. As Fripp wrote in his original liner notes: “Digital equipment remains in its infancy and computers crash – not if but when. Both formats have advantages – a properly balanced Ampex with Dolby SR is maybe unbeatable for a sweet, true sound. But with the amount of compiling on this project, let’s hear it for digital assembly!” Given the huge advances in digital equipment since the early 1990s, I proposed in a rash unguarded moment that for this project we (or rather I) should return to the “properly balanced Ampex with Dolby SR” and recompile these mixes in super high resolution. I had somehow chosen to forget that the practice at the time, pre-automation, was to mix each section of each song three or four times and to then select and compile the best. And that Robert Fripp’s acute interest in the stereo architecture of pieces meant that he would continuously reposition players. So we were faced with roughly two hundred separate mixes to be auditioned and recompiled, often trying to join segments with violently differing tonal qualities and musicians seemingly leaping around the stage. It became the work of months, not the days I had foolishly imagined.

I make no claim that the high resolution versions on the Blu-Ray are “better” than the original versions presented on the CDs. They are different, wider in their stereo image and brighter with extended high end (which, despite the trends of mastering engineers over many decades, is not necessarily better). The editing particularly in matters such as the audience links is however undoubtedly more faithful to the exact flow of the original concerts.

The ten “board mixes” presented different challenges. These were recorded each night by Peter Walmsley, the sound engineer, and faithfully capture the sound sent to the PA system. They are inevitably heavily biased towards the voice and drums, as the other instruments were already amplified onstage. DGM has become an unwilling world leader in the dark arts of audio necromancy, rescuing the semblance of a listenable concert from such unprepossessing starting points (not a life-skill any of us wanted or expected).  In this instance, Peter Walmsley added an additional challenge through his habit of pausing the cassette machine between songs – frequently forgetting to switch it back on until just after the downbeat of the next piece. Where audience links existed, we have kept them, where they were missing, we have recreated them to maintain continuity.  The music is, however, with the exception of those odd errant downbeats, exactly as it was played. In just one instance (the Talking Drum on the 7th June) we have completed the performance by inserting a section from the night before.  As such fabrication is a mortal sin to lovers of authenticity, we have PQ’d the inserted section, so that purists can take the bumpy road and bypass it.

The recording of the final concert from Central Park on July 1st is of unknown provenance. It seems too well-balanced to be the usual illicit cassette player smuggled into the venue, and yet the presence of chatter during one of the pieces shows that neither is it a properly mixed recording. Possibly it is a bootleg recorded on a pair of microphones over the stage. The audience links jump around (as does one section of Fracture), but in its way, it is possibly the closest to the actual sound of a venue. It is significant in that it captures the last live performance of this line-up.

Concert recordings are frequently incomplete (lovers of The Great Deceiver box set will recall The Law of Maximum Distress Parts 1&2, where a section was missing from the middle of the improvisation).  In the unusual case of Fort Worth on 6th June, we had two recordings of the same night, one being a board recording and the other an audience bootleg, and we were able to accurately complete the performance by flying in the missing opening and closing sections from that alternative source. Sadly, that is not often possible.  Where songs are obviously incomplete and either leap in half way through, or cut off before the end, they have been marked with an asterisk, so that it is clear this is not a CD error, but a failure of some poor tape operator or his machine at the time.
