Notes

RSD 2019 (RSD First) Only 1000 copies released on Record Strore Day April, 13, 2019.

On 11/29/1992 at the end of a very successful sold out tour of the UK, Bill performed in London at the Dominion Theatre to a raucous, enthusiastic capacity crowd. This performance became his last recorded special, Revelations, which many consider to be Bill in peak form. When Revelations was originally broadcast on TV and subsequently released on DVD and LP the length of those was one hour and 13 minutes long, being edited to that more time-slot friendly length. But, the actual show that Bill performed that night was an epic, running just under two hours long. Now for the first time the entire audio of the show is being released as Bill performed it that night ......... All 43 missing minutes!!!!

Born in Georgia but raised in Houston since the age of 7, this self-described "Prince of Darkness" was compelled to use the comedy stage as his philosophic soapbox. At 13, he would sneak out of his suburban house to hustle his way onto open-mike night rosters. In two brief decades, Hicks worked his way up the sweat-stained comedy ladder to national exposure on The Tonight Show, Late Show with David Letterman and an HBO cable special. Rolling Stone named him the "hot stand-up" of 1993. He was the hit of the 1990 and 1991 Just for Laughs comedy festivals in Montreal. Dead at 32, the enigmatic Hicks was admired, reviled and misunderstood. -The Montreal Gazette, March 28, 1994

I feel like "Rant In E-Minor: Variations" had the same problem with annoying volume changes mid-track. Maybe it's Comedy Dynamics not being strong at optimizing audio for vinyl (or going to the right people) or it might be due to less-than-ideal sound quality of the original recordings. It's a bummer though and I wish they would get it worked out and release a vinyl box set of anything and everything Bill Hicks for our listening pleasure. Still great to have the extra material from this performance and that anyone is going to the trouble to press this material on wax!

May be just mine but the quality is pretty bad. The volume goes up and down, lots and lots of noise. Still, it’s incredible to hear some new minutes of Bill preaching!
