After seeing several versions claiming to come from an unknown DAT gen from the master reels, the owner of the original tapes offered me a fresh transfer from those reels onto a DAT tape. From there I took the DAT into my studio and digitally transferred it using ProTools, preserving the integrity of the 48kHz/16Bit transfer (unfortunately a 24Bit transfer was not an option). These are the raw, unprocessed wave files from my transfer. MOB will be remastering this recording for Harvested Records, applying some needed speed-correction which will be shared shortly after the release of this torrent.

PLEASE DO NOT REMASTER AND REPOST!!!

Some additional info from the current owner of the reels:

'I didn't tape this show as was posted earlier ( I was 10 years old at the time!), but the taper, John Parkin, kindly gave me his master in the early 90's.

I've no idea who has what in terms of generation but I only made three direct transfers from reel to DAT. When I bought a DAT machine in 1994 I made a safety copy for myself and one also for a friend who is also a member of this forum (edit:Yeeshkul). I sent a few copies to friends at the time and these were clones from my DAT. I also made two cassette copies for other friends one of which was given away some years ago, this is probably the source of most of the boots that have surfaced. I subsequently made a new transfer about 3 years ago for a collector in the US who asked for one (nobody else asked!) so despite comments by others this was never hoarded, it was freely given to people I was in touch with at the time.

If anyone is interested I can make a fresh transfer on DAT, I can send a copy to someone if they want to torrent it. I'm afraid I'm too thick to torrent it myself, I attempted it once but failed miserably. I guess if he is willing I can send it to RonToon, as he is the only person I know on this forum, so Ron if you are 'up for it' let me know.

The original tape was recorded on a Grundig TK 140 machine at 3 3/4 ips, no idea what mics were used. The recording was made from the balcony, and the machine was plugged into the mains ( the joy of taping old shows!) as this was the only power source available.'

Thanks to Lord Snooty for giving me the opportunity to share this incredible source!

Enjoy!
