Comments

This is a direct transfer from a 19 year old low generation recording on a good old TDK D90. The transfer was from tape deck (Aiwa AD-F800) to Audio CD recorder, then EAC to WAV to FLAC.

The tape is low quality and thus hiss is noticeable, but not disasterously so.

This was the last night of the Wishbone Ash tour that IQ were the support for - and they made it to the Hammy Odeon for the first time!

Wishbone were quite generous with the support time and thus the boys packed a lot in - although no epics obviously!

The band went down very well with the partisan crowd, and they bought a lot of fans with them (no doubt one of the reasons why they got the gig!).

The set was predominantly based around the latest vinyl LP release - The Wake - but a couple of older tracks were squeezed in, including a rousing version of Barbell as the encore.

This is the last recording that I have of Pete with the band, before he left and was replaced by Paul Menel, although he did play a few more gigs including Bristol Granary and 2 at the Marquee the last, his last gig, being on the same night as "Live Aid".
