The Tragically Hip
November 13th, 1990
“We’d like to do a song about broken romance if we could, something I know quite a bit about. But I’m not broken-hearted you see, you know……I put it up here, and I learn from it”.

Transfer Notes: This is the last of the three tapes sent by Sixer from the Netherlands. First generation copy, just like the first two. Transferred from cassette tape to hard drive at 24 bit/48kHz. Cool Edit Pro was used to remove hiss/noise, clip restoration, and remove dc offset. No DAE.
Show Notes: This is the final installment of “The Lost Tapes”. All the research we’ve done has only turned up a few songs from this show, until now. This is the COMPLETE show, as broadcast on Dutch radio. From the introduction of the band by the Dutch announcer, to the short interview immediately following the show, this one is the full pull, the real deal! This is the band’s very first show in Holland, and only their second on the European continent. The performance is incredible. The 8 minute long “All Canadian Surf Club” is worth the price of admission alone! The sound of the room they played in was also very good. Gord even remarked about it at one point. This recording captures it very well. It
did take Mark Vreeken 3 or 4 songs to get the mix just right, so be patient when you first start the show. The bass is especially lacking during the first 2 or 3 tracks. It warms up nicely after that. Tomcat did a remarkable job of noise reduction and re-mastering. Trust me, this version we are releasing is the best it can possibly be! Also of note, this release is the way the show was broadcast. “Twist My Arm” was the first encore song, before “Train Kept A Rollin'”, but was played on the air after the final song, “Long Time Running”. The deejay was talking when they played it live, so they broadcast it after the show. We saved the Best of these Netherlands shows for Last! This is truly “The Last of the Unplucked Gems”.
