Audience Recordings (Updated) - My Picks

Thu Jan 03, 2013 9:34 pm

This thread is for those like me who still collect (and appreciate) audience recordings. If you care nothing about audience recordings, go ahead and move along to the next topic. Several years ago, I started a thread about my personal favorites. Even though that thread was appreciated by many, it has not been revived in a long time. However, I still update it with new releases. It has been edited approximately 40 times. I have decided to post it again with all the new releases that are worth mentioning. My list contains shows that are either very good sound quality, a little better than average quality, or good shows. These are strictly the opinion of this fan. I will not remove any shows from this list. Some may disagree with certain CDs that I have listed here, but again, my list and they stay. For those of you who are planning to add to your collection or may just be starting out, these are some of the best. I do have a few more of the newest releases on the way and will add them if I feel they make the list. I do not collect CDRs, so only factory-pressed silver is listed here. There are many more that are out there, but these are some of the better ones. You can't go wrong with any of them for sound quality, historical significance, and/or performance. This has been a labor of love, but you bastards are worth it because I love you very, very much. Remember what ol' Rob always says when you're in doubt on certain recordings. I'll let you know how it is.

Happy collecting.

I love those two August 26th '73 shows. Those were my first exposure to Elvis audience recordings back in the late 80's... I got them from Larry Patrick long before they were issued on CD. :smt023

nice list but i expect soon everyone will be replacing this:- What Now My Love - Las Vegas 2/23/73 C.S. (X-Entertainment) (Released 2005)- on their list with the new Audionics release!~ :?

Re: Audience Recordings (Updated) - My Picks

I never add a release to this list until I have heard it. Once I hear the updated release, it will more than likey replace the old one.

Not until then.

Nice to see this essential list updated once in a while. I must say I like the sound on the more recent Black Diamond digibox re-release better than the old Generations one. I don't know whether it's from a different source, earlier generation or just better eq'd, but it's more natural sounding, while the old release sounds like it has its mid-range turned way up: a more metallic, annoying headache-inducing sound to these ears, the AR equivalent of the sonically disastrous At Full Force (which wasn't an audio upgrade at all to my ears). I'm not a sonic expert, so I express it the best I can. The re-release doesn't have that annoying, hollow metallic sound to it, I think.

I update it every time I hear a new CD that is worthy of making the list -- and will continue to do so.

I do it because I love you so damned much.

I'm certain this is not from your typical "audience recording".

The audio is just too high-end, IMO.

IIRC, RCA were experimenting around this time [for unknown reasons] by recording shows with 2 mics [hence the the spatial and atmospheric ambience] by feeding them directly into a recording console.

I believe FTD sourced some of this same material for the I Found My Thrill bonus track "medley".
