Dreamweaver 1989 US advance promo Cassette

last updated : 18/7/22

This is a VERY intriging find from Discogs:
A US Noise advance promo tape for Dreamweaver

 

Astonishingly ‘When All Else Fails’ is clearly printed upon the shell although, sadly, the audio for that track is not included on it.
Instead is a rather clumsily cut’n’pasted extended version of ‘Happy Never After’ in its place which rather tantalisingly implies that ‘When All Else Fails’ WAS originally recorded on the tape and then it has been rather hastily taped over at presumably the last minute before release.
Timing taken from the end of the standard version of ‘Happy Never After’ and the ‘insect noise outro’ at the very end of the tape indicate that ‘When All Else Fails’ was unusually short for a SABBAT song.
Presumably it was thrashed out much faster than the longer SKYCLAD ‘cover’ version with which it probably shared very little apart from lyrics and vocalist.
Certainly musical credits are not carried over and as a general rule, Andy wrote the SABBAT song structures first, and then Martin added the vocals into the structure.
If Andy was upset enough by the song to force it to be pulled at this late stage ( although why did he even agree to record it in the first place? ) he would not have allowed the SKYCLAD version to cover ‘his’ music so soon afterwards and it seems reasonable to assume that the two songs probably sounded quite different to each other.

Dreamweaver Sound Basement promo Cassette

27/5/22

I’ve been asked for my thoughts as to whether this tape currently on eBay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/165496696409

is a genuine 1989 release or not.

From the photos it certainly looks like it has aged naturally over time and the seller has a 100% positive feedback record for selling similar items.

I’ve never seen a SABBAT tape like this before apart from a MHB tape on Sound Cellar which which was sold in recent years.

I haven’t been able to ascertain any relationship between Sound Basement and Sound Cellar despite their confusingly similar names and logos.
Their releases also appear to overlap so I can’t find a simple name/phone number/location change for the same company.
(According to Discogs, Sound Cellar was set up in 1988 but this release on Sound Basement must have been after Dreamweaver was recorded in early 1989)
I also can’t find a clear correlation between either of their Discogs release listings and other Noise International releases.

The discrepancies in the exact wording/spacing/punctuation of the track titles from those of the final release are not consistent with the promos produced for the vinyl advance promos which would have gone to press earlier since the extra track initially destined for the cassette release had been deleted by the time this was produced
[ c.f Dreamweaver 1989 US advance promo Cassette]

These are the things that form my own opinion of how much I would pay for this item myself

The auction still has five days to run but the starting price of £30 is already more than I’m willing to give for it so I’ll be interested to see what it fetches in the end…

‘Lost’ SABBAT tracks re-surface !! Live at The Mardi Gras Nottingham 29/1/87 official recording

last edited 15/5/22

29/1/87 DATE HAS NOW BEEN CONFIRMED THROUGH FRAZER HAVING A FLYER OF THE GIG!

( I’m going to have to make this into a proper cover for the tape, as it is just perfect for it! )

Confirmation of the date is also confirmation that the dedication of ‘KINGDOM COME’ was to DAVID HALLIDAY of HELL who committed suicide that day.

( See Kingdom Come )

9/4/21

Originally obtained directly from Andy Sneap back in 1988.

 

Not only …

a recording I never knew existed…

and the earliest known surviving SABBAT full concert…

and the only known surviving live recordings of the Magick tracks…

and the only known surviving recording to feature live versions of all the demo tracks from all 3 SABBAT demos…

with a truly extraordinary, jaw-dropping effects-laden version of ‘The 13th Disciple’ that has the most insane SABBAT sound ever…

and the only known surviving recording of any kind

of the previously presumed lost track

‘Beauty And The Beast’

but also…

the only known recording of an original early SABBAT track previously totally unknown to me  –

‘Kingdom Come’ !!!!

 

SABBAT  – MARDI GRAS NOTTINGHAM  – 29/1/87?*

INTRO / A CAUTIONARY TALE – [6:12]

I FOR AN EYE – [5:14]

HOSANNA IN EXCELSIS – [4:24]

STRANGER THAN FICTION – [6:13]

FOR THOSE WHO DIED – [6:24]

THE ORIGINAL SIN – [2:43]

THE THIRTEENTH DISCIPLE  – [8:06]

THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION – [4:00]

KINGDOM COME – [5:21]

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST – [6:25]

BY THY COMMAND – [4:51]

[ *29/2/87 is the date given on the insert, but in this recording Martin tells the audience before the encore that they will be in Kerrang! at ‘the end of February’ and on The Friday Rock Show  ‘at the end of February’ so this was recorded at some point before the end of Feb .. and as 1987 wasn’t a leap year there wasn’t a 29th Feb… so… 29th Jan is a much more likely contender.

 

Huge thanks to Gunther  &  J.

and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that one day the video will turn up again! =)

last updated: 24/3/21

I’ve finally splashed out on a SABBAT domain name for this site.

 

www.sabbat.live

 

was just too tempting at a mere £3.95 a year =)

Pages/links/bookmarks will all continue to work as before

and now www.sabbat.live or even just sabbat.live

will end up here as well.

 

A handy bonus is a tidy new email address:

mark@sabbat.live

 
 

I may add another email if I find one I prefer, so far I’ve thought of:
backstage@sabbat.live
stagediving@sabbat.live
in-the-moshpit@sabbat.live
jamming-with-the-band@sabbat.live
drinkingbeer@sabbat.live
wondering-where-the-bootleg-stall-is@sabbat.live
etc,etc,etc
All should arrive if not blocked by an auto-spam filter, but to be able to reply from one I need to set it up specifically in advance =)
