The difference between this “remastered” release and the previous
Raider Of The Lost Art release ‘Glam Slam East’ (which this is sourced from) is
immediately obvious and this is a vast improvement over an already great
bootleg. The running order of the 10th June (am) show was rearranged
back-to-front on the previous release with ‘Now’ spanning 2 discs – thankfully
that is no longer the case and the show is presented here as it was meant to be.
The opening 9th June (am) show isn’t the best show of the era however it is a
very impressive recording with the show extremely loud and clear.
The audience are very vocal throughout, but only really begin to interfere with
the recording towards the costume change in ‘Maybe Your Baby’ – otherwise they
add an appreciative atmosphere. The fluctuation with the volume of the original
release has been dealt with very well, and added to that the number of drop-outs
during ‘Maybe Your Baby’ have been corrected. The show contains a lengthy 12
minute jam of ‘Shoop’ which features various rapped lyrics from ‘Sexy MF’, ‘Gett
Off’ and ‘Acknowledge Me’. The closing 20 minutes is perhaps the highlight
though with a scorching version of ‘Peach’ followed by a very lengthy closing
‘Glam Slam Boogie’ which includes lyrics from ‘The Ride’ towards the beginning.
The 10th June (am) show is far superior and the recording is of an equally high
standard. 4DaFunk have done some serious work on this show (especially ‘Now’)
and it’s to their eternal credit that hadn’t you been aware of the track split
on the previous version you would be clueless as to where it takes place. The
show begins with a drum intro from Mr. B with various Arabian samples swirling
around in the background before Prince launches into a ferocious ‘Soul Sacrifice
/ Santana Medley’ and the show doesn’t let up for the remainder. This show
features a fair amount of bass jamming (always a good thing) and it’s never more
evident than on ‘Hide The Bone’. ‘Days Of Wild’ contains the usual portion of
‘Hair’ but rather unusually also has the crowd chant from ‘Johnny’ inserted.
The releases finishes with ‘I Hate U’ played over the PA at the club which
doesn’t differ from the released version. Overall one cannot help but be
impressed with this release. The improvements over the Raiders Of The Lost Art
release are evident, and the correction of just about every flaw, drop-out and
glitch is worthy of applause. Sexy artwork too.
