Comments

This is a direct transfer from 20 year old first generation recording on a good old TDK D90. Noise reduction was used in the initial recording but, given the quality of the tape, tape hiss is still present, but not overly so. 

The transfer was from tape deck (Aiwa AD-F800) to Audio CD recorder, then EAC to WAV to NERO 6.0 to FLAC.

This is a surprisingly good audience recording which I'd rate as B+.

This was the furthest gig north to the far reaches of Scotland and the boys were looking forward to heading home! Notwithstansding worries over the reception they would receive they went down well! This was despite all sorts of equipment failure including Mike having severe guitar problems after track one - sorting them and then having the organ go phut! 

I have this down as an afternoon gig starting at 2pm.

The set was a bit shorter than normal. and fits on one CDR-80! The band were pressured by the venue as to time but stuck to the set list anyway.

A gig for odd sounds here and there and well worth a good listen!

Another 1984 cover was rolled out for the encore with Alice getting the nod as per the night before in Aberdeen.
