TEO TORRIATTE (high definition mix)
Source taken from 2011 'A Day At The Races' 2 CD set.


The 2005 Japanese release would be a much better bet - it's far less brickwalled.

Otherwise - excellent job on ADATR !

wow.
Didn't expect that.
Incredible how you managed to pull the vocals out as much as you did witohut damaging them.


I think this comes from the Montreux exhibition, where they have the isolated tracks.

You're welcome :-)

You're seriously missing out - there's some incredible live and studio stuff.

Start with the Boston 76 concert (the torrent on page 3 should work):

It's better than 90% of what QPL have released since 1995.

Re-edited to restore proper length of the track.
Sources taken from 1998 'The Eye' PC CD-ROM and 2012 'Royal Orb' USB Gift Box.


Can you elaborate on this 2012 'Royal Orb' USB Gift Box ? What else was on there?


I have 24/48 FLACs from it. Not the item itself.

Both 2011 and 2005 versions were analyzed and 2011 defined to be a better one for dynamic restoration work. Also it features more natural ending in comparison with standalone version from TT 2005 promo CDS.
BTW, Jewels II version is not clean version (with ADATR album 'outro').

No, my version as well as your mp3 version was created using manipulation with album version and instrumental version from the eYe.
Of course they are not the vocal stems from Montreux, they are not so clean/isolated as you can hear.

But how?

The top one is 2011, and it's clearly more brickwalled (see attached).

But yours appears more like 2005 - are you sure you don't have them reversed in your collection?

Or did you use har-bal or something to lighten the effects of the compression?

BTW, Jewels II version is not clean version (with ADATR album 'outro').

True, but of course that's easily fixed :-)

Another tidbit for the Magic album - I've had this short version of Princes Of The Universe for about a decade.

It's labelled as a demo, but clearly it's the final product, or very close to it, just without the vocals.

It reveals a guitar orchestra at the end (and a lovely diminished 7th chord @ 0:41) that's buried underneath.

Whoa, the extended version of Pain Is So Close To Pleasure has some guitar not on the studio version.

@ 4:40 to 4:50, Brian is seriously unleashing his inner Eddie van Halen.

Particularly in the climb at 4:43.

In case anyone's wondering, this stuff is precisely why alternate versions of songs are so interesting.

I'm 100% sure that I worked with 2011 version. And yes, I use several algorythms to restore clipping and dynamic compression.

Really great snippet, I never heard before. As I hear it is similar to the very end of alternate version I used on CD1 of AKOM, but with guitar instead of final vocals.

Probably Brian recorded guitar for (almost) all lead vocal melody/phrases. These guitar licks unfortunately omitted from the album version but partialy used for both unreleased mixes.

It would be great if the instrumental version with all this guitar work was released on single as the b-side back in 1986.

Actually it's the same guitar solo on all versions of PISCTP, but differently edited. If you familiar with rough mix of the album version of the song from convention playback, you'll find that album version featured complete guitar solo before the final edit.

BTW, This guitar solo is superb and is the best thing in the song for me.

Here's my version of the Princes Of The Universe instrumental - the longest possible version, I think .. !

Don't mean to hijack your thread, but since we're on the topic, I'm sure a few people will enjoy this.

Can you do better than mp3 please Bob, or do you only have the end bit in mp3?

Correct.

I don't even remember how I ended up with the file. I got it in 2007.

But surely someone else here must have it, because I sure didn't conjure it up in a test tube !

By the way...

Just downloaded the other albums and I'll just say I can't wait until you release Jazz!

I can't believe I haven't paid attention to the fan mixes board!

I think that second section comes from end the credits of the Highlander TV series:

Well spotted !

Then it shouldn't be too tough to create a lossless version.

^ Yes, great catch. It seems to me that only this episode features this instrumental snippet. All other episodes from Season 1 feature the album version edit.

Well, I already found the official DVD source. So I think I will add it to AKOM CD2 soon.
