What Is The Right Or Proper Tracklisting Of "Matt Monro Live In Araneta Colesieum 1966"

I Would To Ask Why You Didn't Make A Copy Of The Cassette Tape (The Second Generation Copy Of The Concert) To Another Tape And Then Experiment it. According To Mint Audio Restoration The First Original 1/4″ Reel tape Was Gone Since It Was Transfered. Also The Hiss Make The Tape Bad

So What's The Right Track List?

The tracks as they appear on the Night Owl release from 1966 are in the exact same order that is on the original tape, which we assume was unedited - Headliners of concerts didn't play for as long as they do now back then so about 30 minutes is right.

Copying to yet another tape would actually make the hiss worse, not improve it.

We don't know the exact origin of the recording, but I believe it was recorded directly from the PA feed. We only know it came from one of Matt's 1/4 inch reel to reel tapes that were lost by EMI after they were copied to cassette. The cassette is 2nd generation in comparison to the reel to reel, but is not majorly different in quality, as it was probably 3 & 3/4 inches per second on a portable tape machine - and perhaps not a good one. Certainly not a professional recording. It's been 13 years since I worked on the recording and the information on my website was written just after i'd completed work, so will be accurate. I could not remove any more hiss from the recording without destroying the sound quality.

Put it this way, what you hear on the Yesterday CD is exactly as it happened, minus a lot of hiss, various microphone handling noises. The only thing added (from what I remember) was some applause, just because it wasn't picked up by any microphones, and so I added some from another concert in places to make it sound more natural.

Hello, Richard I Ask This Because I Didn't Hear Jokes Of Matt only Music



Stupid Question:
Did you Try Recreate The Concert By Remove The Orchestra Sound And Make The Other Band Performed It? Also Sync The Vocals In The New Sound And Then Recreate The Applause By Technology or Hire? Stupid Question Eh?

The concert isn't edited, so what you hear is what happened. Perhaps Matt didn't do as much speech in front of an audience where English wasn't the first language.

Not a stupid question at all. Nothing has been replaced here. Everything you hear, in terms of music, is what happened in 1966 with a little bit of EQ to re-balance the sound. All I added was additional applause, as this was not clearly picked up on the recording and sounded like it was a long way away. Adding some back in made it sound more natural. I had to do the same with the 1984 Australian concert.
