PANAMERICA (Discs 3&4​)​: Full Show (Costa Rica)

by Stick Men featuring David Cross

/
  • Beautifully designed box set with slip case, individual jackets for the CDs plus a 24-page booklet with exclusive tour photographs by Tony Levin

    "Before embarking on this major tour with David Cross we planned to record all the shows with a view to potentially releasing them digitally. However, once I began reviewing the multi-track files, I was shocked to discover that in many cases both mine and Tony’s parts were missing, leaving us with far less useable material. Nonetheless, this setback inspired a creative approach that led us to produce this special boxed set. Across five themed discs we present the band’s progression throughout the tour using material and preferences that resonated with us." - Markus Reuter

    PANAMERICA: Improvs (Bolivia, Argentina, Brazil)
    Disc 1 presents a series of live “deep cuts” from the tour. With the quartet configuration the band‘s improvs transcended to a new plane, and this compilation highlights the spirit of those performances.

    PANAMERICA: Suites (Argentina, Peru, Uruguay, Chile)
    Disc 2 contains a series of suites compiled from selected improv edits. Each track was sourced from 3 separate pieces. There were no multitrack recordings available, therefore stereo board mixes were used.

    PANAMERICA: Full Show, Parts 1 & 2 (Costa Rica)
    Discs 3 and 4 contain the band‘s complete/unedited San José performance.

    PANAMERICA: Soundscapes (Argentina, Mexico, Guatemala)
    Disc 5 has been compiled using the isolated improvised parts of Markus and David from the Mar del Plata, Monterrey, Rosario and Guatemala City concerts, edited into a 70-minute continuous sonic journey.

A note from Markus Reuter:

Before embarking on this major tour with David Cross we planned to record all the shows with a view to potentially releasing them digitally. However, once I began reviewing the multi-track files, I was shocked to discover that in many cases both mine and Tony’s parts were missing, leaving us with far less useable material. Nonetheless, this setback inspired a creative approach that led us to produce this special boxed set. Across five themed discs we present the band’s progression throughout the tour using material and preferences that resonated with us.

Discs 3 and 4 (presented as one download album here) contain the band‘s complete/unedited San José performance.
