1970-09-03 K.B. Hallen Copenhagen Complete Sourceology

This torrent has been ‘in preparation’ for quite some time.
It contains the 6 individual sourcetapes of the show in the best possible quality.
Every publication that has listed the sources of this show (PYE, UV, FTBFS) uses a different numbering of the sources and the publication that lists most actually lists a source which doesn’t exist.
So for this torrent, a new numbering-scheme of the sources was needed, more details about that later in this introduction.
First a little information about the venue.

18557

K.B. Hallen was a multi-purpose venue in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was opened in 1938, but burned to the ground on 28 September 2011.
It was named after Københavns Boldklub, Copenhagen's first ball-playing club, which was established in 1876.
18558
As a concert hall, it held a capacity of 3,000 people and was often the scene of rock and pop concerts.
It was used primarily for badminton, tennis, basketball and volleyball, but also hosted other events, including dance tournaments and flea markets.
18559
The hall was completed in 1938 and was then Europe's biggest private sports complex. The architect was Hans Hansen, the chief engineer Christen Ostenfeld, and Poul Henningsen designed special lighting and an adjacent ballroom called "Pejsesalen", where a large mural was painted.
In the summer of 1944, the Danish Nazi group, the Schalburgkorps, placed a bomb in the hall, destroying most of the furniture and glasswork, but the building itself was left intact, rendering the hall closed for only half a year afterwards.

The building was used for a number of concerts. Artists to have performed at the hall include Beniamino Gigli, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Josephine Baker, Count Basie, Mary Lou Williams, Leo Mathisen, Stan Laurel & Oliver Hardy, The Beatles (1964), The Rolling Stones (1966), Janis Joplin, Fleetwood Mac (1969) Love + Procul Harum (1970), The Band (1971), Pink Floyd, Steve Miller Band, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Slade, The Who, Stephen Stills Manassas (1970), Frank Zappa (1973), Eric Clapton (1974), Jack Bruce (1975), Metallica (1988), Aerosmith (1989), Iron Maiden (1988, 1990, 1992, 1995), Skid Row+L.A. Guns (1991), Keith Richards (1992), Megadeth (1995), Smashing Pumpkins (1996), Toto (1996, 1999, 2010, 2011), Kraftwerk, Papa Roach, The Prodigy (2004), Asia, Dio, Uriah Heep (2005), Slipknot og Busta Rhymes (2006), My Chemical Romance (2007), Whitesnake, Slipknot (2008), Deep Purple, Mötley Crüe (1989+2009), Deftones, Coheed, Cambria (2010) and Joe Bonamassa/Black Country Communion in 2011. Others to have performed there over the years include Alice Cooper, Great White, Radiohead, Chuck Berry, System of A Down, G3, Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Alice In Chains, Ozzy Osbourne, Gary Moore, Uriah Heep, Motörhead, Def Leppard, Evanescence, Nightwish, Marilyn Manson, Machine Head, Foo Fighters, Oasis, B.B. King, The Moody Blues, Dream Theater, The Cult, Kiss, Scorpions, Dragonforce, Slayer, Sheryl Crow, Stone Temple Pilots, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Queensrÿche, Paul McCartney & Wings, Rammstein, Green Day, The Black Crowes and Jethro Tull.
18560
At the rear of the hall was a small museum, with pictures and documents on the club and hall's history.
18561
On 28 September 2011, on the eve of the beginning of a major sex toy and pornographic exhibition, the hall was destroyed in a roaring fire. Initial suspicions linked the fire to a food kiosk in the lobby of the building, or to an electrical lighting fault. It has been decided to rebuild the hall, but work has not yet begun.

Now about the tapes.

On this night at least 6 young guys snuck their taperecorders into the hall where the Jimi Hendrix concert would take place.
It is thanks to them with their tiny microphones in their sweaty hands that we can now enjoy the show again and again and from various locations inside the hall.
They all recorded the concert, 3 of them even recorded the whole show.

For this project, I contacted the most knowledgable Scandinavian collectors I knew in order to get the lowest gen. tapes in the best possible quality.

Without them, this wouldn’t have become as good a collection as it is so my great thanks to Håkan, Claus and Karsten.

You guys really went above and beyond the call of duty, a few DAT tapes had to be played back through 4 different DAT players before we had a glitch-free transfer.

In the end, every source in this collection is an upgrade to what is circulating until now…..or completely new to circulation.

Originally, in Plug Your Ears (the online version) we had the five sources listed as thus:
Source 1. Complete 90 min’
Source 2. Complete 92 min'
Source 3. Incomplete 50 min’, tracks 1-6
Source 4. Incomplete 65 min’, tracks 1-10
Source 5. Incomplete 50 min’, Tracks 1-9

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SOURCES ARE NOW (RE-)NUMBERED BY THEIR DATE OF DISCOVERY

1. Source 1 is the oldest known source. It captures the complete show but does suffer from speed variations.
Transfer in this set: 1st gen>DAT>WAV>FLAC. (tt93.06)

2. Source 2 is the so-called 'Old Short Source' which runs until Freedom. Formerly known as Source 5.
Transfer in this set: 1st gen>DAT>WAV>FLAC. (tt50.16)

3. Source 3 is the 'cassette' source, which also captures the complete show but does so in slightly worse sound than Source1. Formerly known as Source 2.
Transfer in this set: Master>DAT>WAV>FLAC. (tt91.33)

4. Source 4 has been in circulation as a incomplete tape ending with Red House. In this set we have a new version of this tape, which now is the complete show
Transfer in this set: Master>WAV>FLAC. (tt95.49)

5. Source 5 has been in limited circulation with very poor sound as 'source 6'. The taper was probably furthest from the stage out of all known sources.
Transfer in this set: 1st gen>DAT>WAV>FLAC. (tt69.10)

6. Source 6 has never been circulated before. Unfortunately the batteries of the Uher recorder went dead so the pitch increases nearer the end of the tape.
Transfer in this set: Master>DAT>WAV>FLAC. (tt45.25)

Old Source 1 = New Source 1
Old Source 2 = New Source 3
Old Source 3 never existed
Old Source 4 = New Source 4 but now complete
Old Source 5 = New Source 2
Old Source 6 = New Source 5
New Source 6 = New Source 6
(OLD SOURCES=as in PLUG YOUR EARS)
(NEW SOURCES= per date of discovery)

The Show.

The label 'Concert of the Year' has been used many times, but this time it is justified. Jimi Hendrix at the K.B. Hallen last night surpasses anything we have heard until now. A filled hall made love to him, sat with open mouths and vibrating nerves, and heard him, Billy Cox, and Mitch Mitchell (who went to London yesterday and returned on a rented plane, to say hello to his newborn daughter). Jimi was ill and tired in Arhus, but was so high in Copenhagen that it was true energy, true adrenalin which ran through his fingers, through his guitar, and into all of us. That any human being can contain this much is incredible. He gave the peace sign when he entered, and the feelings he and his group expressed through their music was true love, a love which contains all the aspects of life, from sorrow to rebirth. As a warrior of love he stood, dressed in many colors, and was the best guitarist rock 'n' roll music can offer. What Hendrix, Cox, and Mitchell gave to those who were at the K.B. Hallen, no one can take away.

Helle Hellemann - Politikin, Sept. 4, 1970

In connection with the aborted concert in Arhus last Wednesday, Jimi Hendrix is supposed to have said that he had 'been dead for a long time.' If this is correct, I would suggest that the concert in Copenhagen a day later was a resurrection from the dead. A similar musical liveliness I have rarely experienced. It lasted one and a half hours, and left one like a rag. It was hard to bear. More reserved listeners might make objections, saying that Hendrix fails to give the audience breaks, and that he played at unvaried speed at the highest volume and intensity. But I am afraid there seems to be nothing to do about that. After all, it is on this level of sound that he utilizes the guitar amplifiers tonal possibilities...it is not frequent you experience something like this...it is music which is continually built up, music which, almost from minute to minute, exceeds its own limits. Not to forget his unique appearance, his colorful dress, and most of all his supple grace in every movement during his playing. I do not think I know any musician who offers the eye as much as Hendrix...Drummer Mitch Mitchell is an excellent third part...with a rhythmic complexity and an ability to follow Hendrix everywhere, which can be hard to imagine any other drummer doing.

Erik Wiedemann - Information, Sept. 5, 1970




Jimi, Mitch and Billy come on stage greeted enthousiastically by the crowd.
Jimi flashes the peace-sign and seems in very good spirits.
‘YEAH, Right, Right On!’ he says followed by a chord and some nice guitar licks to check his tuning, its OK, they go straight into Stone Free.
Stone Free ends with feedback which Jimi uses to go straight into the next song, Foxy Lady.
People who attended the concert often remember the show as 1 long uninterrupted piece of music with barely a pause to take a breath.
Jimi introduces Message To Love, dedicated to all the brothers and sisters, everybody. A speedy version follows, and when it ends Jimi goes straight into Hey Baby.
Considered by many to be the finest performance of the song, it really is a wonderful ‘out of this world’ piece, also helped by the appreciative audience, the next night in Berlin wasn’t so lucky in that regard.
When the song ends, Jimi goes straight into a fast and furious rendition of All Along The Watchtower.
Amazingly, Jimi’s guitar stays in tune all the time and Jimi introduces Machine Gun dedicating it to all the people fighting for their own cause and rights, and to the cats in Vietnam, ‘Fighting For Freedom’.
After more than 11 minutes of Machine Gun, they go straight into Spanish Castle Magic without even stopping.
Spanish Castle Magic cointains musical quotes of Sly Stone’s ‘Sing a Simple Song’ and the Rolling Stones’ ‘Satisfaction’before it ends in a drum solo, the only one of the night, which already tells us its probably a show Jimi enjoyed.
Jimi signals Mitch to start the Ezy Ryder intro and they go into a high-energy version of the song.
Jimi tunes up and introduces Freedom, and after the song ends, they waste not a second, and go straight into 10 minutes of fine Red House.
After Red House again no time is spilt and a fierce rendition of In From The Storm follows.
Jimi thanks the audience for coming and without introdction goes into Purple Haze which is followed seamlessly by nearly 15 minutes of Voodoo Child, during which it becomes clear Jimi’s guitar wont stay in tune forever.
They get offstage and the crowd cheers for more, so we get a rare encore.
Perhaps to accommodate the audience, where several members shout out for Hey Joe, that is what follows.
And if that wasn’t enough, straight after Hey Joe they play Fire, the final song of the night.
Its remarkable that this is the only recorded Hendrix show to end with Fire – which is exactly how the KB Hallen itself ended up 41 years later.

I know, there's a lot of info there but nowhere does it say its Mitch on Drums or Billy on Bass, and the setlist isnt here either....:)

If you're still having the connection/host issues, check out the instructions here (http://208.69.38.205/), I dont know which Operating System you use nowadays, but most are there.
I had exactly the same problems as you have now when i tried to torrent this and that site helped me. Flushing DNS didnt actually improve anything but putting those alternate IP addresses in the DNS settings helped instantly. Hope you get it to work!

Looks great -- but the torrent is not working. "Hostname not found" is the message. I appeciate the instructions posted above, but with all other torrrents from several other sites working flawlessly, I am not sure why torrrents from this and only this site would be suddenly be affected by a problem in my settings. Also not sure what would happen to the other sites if I reset my connections as suggested. :uncomfortableness:

No issues in downloading with me (for a change:-)) . The 16 Bit vesrion took a long time to DL while this one was quite quick.

Some folk say they have no DNS issues, still I recommend flushing and also take the advise of Johan regarding IP's.

If you still have issues then please inform us, otherwise live with what you have!

I'm also not sure twood70, i just know what worked for me. And it seems to work for most people.

So you cant say the torrent is not working. Its not working for you.

I just posted the solution that worked for me when i had been mucking around with a torrent that wouldnt work.
I can tell you that this little change in settings hasnt affected other sites as far i can see.

If the transfer from analog was originally done to DAT, that would customarily be 16-bit only.

What's the point of converting a 16-bit source to 24 ? Or were the DAT decks those special later Tascam/Fostex models that did offer the option to record @24bit with the tape running at double speed?

No, thats not true. Later DAT recorders have an option to capture in 24bit. And thats what these files are.

For information.

I have found a problem with playing these 24bit mono flac files through Foobar2000, where the playback speed is way too fast (sounding like a cartoon soundtrack). No such problem using other playback software though, so it seemed specific to Foobar2000. When I Googled it I found that others are also having problems with 24bit mono flac files in Foobar2000. The issues can be found here http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=93037.

Not sure of the cause but I had a number of torrents that had single pieces missing when I came to re-check them following completion. These were downloaded from several trackers. Luckily I have been able to re-download the missing pieces for the majority of those found with errors so far, though still a number to check through yet.

Anyway to get to the point I wish to make here, whilst checking 1970.09.03 KB Hallen Copenhagen 6 Sources 24 bit Mono Tapes (http://crosstowntorrents.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=18566&d=1355325005) with Traders Little Helper and analysing the encoded audio files I found that sources 2 & 3 have the following issues.

File is decodable without error, but flac fingerprint cannot be checked since it was unset in the streaminfo block.

Googling this I found the following explanation - When a wav file is encoded to flac format the flac encoder writes the md5 checksum of the raw wave data (the so called flac fingerprint) to the header of the flac file. When decoding that flac file at a later time the integrity of the audio data will be automatically checked by comparing the checksum of the decoded wave data with the fingerprint in the flac file header.


In this case the checksum/fingerprint in the flac file header was set to zero (possibly by some bad encoder). So it is not possible to tell whether the decoded wave data is identically equal with the one before it was encoded.

I just thought I would post this in case others come across this issue.

I re-downloaded the torrent and did a forced re-check to make sure my files matched the original torrent files, which they did.

Wow! Excellent work out there! Thx!

I am wonderin' if these all tape are taped in mono originally? I compared it quickly with funkydrummer's version and this source merge is in full stereo while all six raw recordings are in mono. Could someone enlight me up a bit? I am much sort of tech seeker when it comes collecting different sources.

Yes the raw sources are mono, but when you synch them up and merge them, you can for instance put one source in the left channel and another source in the right channel and then it is in stereo.
