|Camel - Christuskirche, Bochum, Germany (Spacebandit)|
|Recorded at the Christuskirche, Bochum, Germany. Very good audience recording.
From the info file:
Christuskirche, Bochum, Germany
October - 30 - 2013
40th anniversary tour
- For Peter Bardens -
It's a Spacebandit, so you're in there!
OM2R -> Zoom H2n (at WAV 16/44) -> SDcard -> HD -> Audacity (edit/volume balance only) -> WAV 16/44 -> TLH8 -> FLAC -> YOUR EARS AND MIND...
Recorded by yours truly on 4th row balcony almost dead center. Due to my working schedule, me, brother Martin and sister-in-law Martina entered the church by 19:20, where
all the good seats down were already taken. Martina noticed me of the balcony, so I immediately took the chance. So we went up (and had a better view).
The tape itself is not really up to my own standarts, but it is enjoyabale. A weird talkative couple behind me had something to chat during the interludes on the 2nd set,
but nothing too annoying. The overall sound was...hmmm, church-like. The place was not built for superb acoustic, but the soundguy did a very fine job.
Lots of massive clapping, standing ovations clapping are audible, and I didn't change anything. So, this is WARTS, CLAPPING AND ALL.
A labour of love. 10 years and 15 days since my last CAMEL show in Paderborn on their FAREWELL TOUR those days.
I don't tell you much about my personal feelings in Bochum, except for one: In my mind, I could re-sing (mouth closed) all the lyrics to Never let go/Lady Fantasy from my memory.
Did I mention the gooseballs on my arms during Preparation/Dunkirk? Ghostly athomsphere...Hope you like it. SB.
