Pink Floyd - Household Objects In Paris (1970) The Godfatherecords 2013 SBD




The Amazing Pudding (23:12 min)

Em termos de desempenho e qualidade de som, este registro (French Radio Broadcast), como diriam os fãs e colecionadores, é um "must-have". As performances em Paris à exemplo de "Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun" e "Cymbaline" figuram entre versões mais eficazes, e atmosféricas de toda a turnê. Talvez não o melhor show da banda, (algo difícil ser categórico), mas sem dúvida interessante, tanto em performance quanto em nitidez. The Godfatherecords conseguiu lapidar o que já era bom e como de costume desenvolvendo um trabalho de arte nas capas bastante caprichado. 

Em 23 de janeiro de 1970 "The Amazing Pudding" - "Atom Heart Mother" como seria então conhecida algumas semanas depois, vive talvez seu momento de maior inspiração antes de atingir sua concepção definitiva, assim foi vista por crítica e público dentro do que pude ler a respeito, um grande destaque na época, e sem dúvida é impressionante a beleza deste desempenho. O excepcional trabalho de guitarra (em todo o show) de "Gilmour" e seus os vocais agudos, são de uma dramaticidade plástica irretocável. De fato, todas as canções se vêem num ótimo momento da banda, e em minha opinião outra faixa que consegue ser destaque pelo desempenho inspirado, e raras vezes ao vivo, é "Main Theme From More". E como 'sempre' "Richard Wright" genial, proporciona uma ambiência psicodélica surreal ao episódio. "Mason" e "Waters" não ficam atrás, a base de um equilíbrio que beira a perfeição. Brindando a isso com rara felicidade, provavelmente é a melhor gravação do período. Boa audição!

Review:

Household Objects In Paris (The Godfatherecords G.R. 867/868)

Theatre des Champs-Elysées, Paris, France – January 23, 1970

The second release in a short time of the recently circulated tape source for The Pink Floyd’s incredible concert in Paris in January 1970, this time from the folks at Godfather Records. The first was The Man In Paris (Sigma 89), a very nice release that included a third disc that featured two songs in outstanding quality from a radio broadcast.

The main difference comes in the mastering of the show itself, Godfather chose not to increase the volume as much as Sigma so the background noise is not as bad nor are the mic bumps that occur sporadically such as the beginning of both discs as the taper was positioning his equipment. Case in point, take the beginning of the second disc as the band retakes the stage and begins the tune up for what would eventually be “Astronomy Domine”, the mic bumps sound quite jarring on the Sigma while hardly noticeable on Godfathers. They also elected not to increase the speed of the tape as much and filled in some small gaps with the original radio broadcast recording.

I was reading over the description of the show in Hodges and Priston’s superb Embryo: A Pink Floyd Chronology and found an interesting observation from a friend of the Floyd’s who was in attendance. He went on to say that when the band started “The Main Them From More” the audience had a very positive reaction, you can clearly hear it on this new recording.

Godfather also uses the original radio broadcast recording three times for this release, the first is at 11:48 – 11:56 during “A Saucerful Of Secrets” and the last two gaps are both in “Atom Heart Mother”, the first at 8:08 – 8:19 and at 23:33 – 23:45, the slices are excellent with the first two being hard to notice. Anyone who has heard the original tape knows that the volume does fluctuate slightly throughout the entire recording, from what I would guess it is the azimuth coordinator in all its glory. I like that Godfather chose to use the older radio source, it would have been extremely jarring to hear the excellent sounding broadcast tape mixed in.

The packaging is tri gate fold sleeve with pictures from early 1970; the center spread has liner notes written by Alex The Gnome. The photos and graphics are over tattered looking paper giving the feeling of unearthing some long lost document. For those who wish to obtain the show with an excellent quality release at a more affordable price this is certainly a viable opportunity to do so as Godfather has done an excellent job with this release. It’s not often Floyd collectors get such a wonderful treat to tantalize not only one’s ears but also one’s mind.
