Neil Young - Amsterdam (1989-12-10) (Pre-FM)

Neil Young
Muziektheater Stopera, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (From Pre-FM Soundboard tapes)

Notes: I saw this show was on the tracker recently, from a boot sourced from the FM broadcast with the missing two tracks spliced in from an audience tape.

It reminded me that I had a more complete and (in my opinion) superior sounding soundboard version of this show in my archives.
It is sourced from the pre-FM soundboard tapes with the lineage Soundboard tape>Cassette (1gen)>DAT>Hard Disk (via SPDIF)>Cool Edit 2000 (Resample to 44.1kHz)>CDR
It INCLUDES the track Fuckin' Up which was not broadcast. Unfortunately the track No More is still missing - it faded out on the DAT after a couple of seconds.
I removed this snippet and some of the inter-track silence to fit the show on one 80min CDR - they were still expensive when I transferred this show!

I also have the Hamburg 1989 show from Pre-FM tapes which again is more complete (but still incomplete) and better sounding than the FM tapes. I'll upload this in a few days.

Thanks to Viglione for all the trades back in the 90s.

Hello :) I love this show and noticed that there *IS* a fully-complete version of this show, using FM/soundboard recordings.. even "no more" is included (and "fucking up", of course)

Can't find any links for it right now (maybe there are torrent links - please Google for those) you can find info here:
