I created and shared these files some 5 years ago as part of a 32 show IQ series from the early 80's and on noticing how poor my share ratio has become decided to put some of these on here in the hope that it may make a difference! :-)
I'm sure lots of people may have these already but you never know! I've searched the dead torrents and can't see that they have been here before - apologies to the moderators if that's not the case.

I attach below the original comments I made at the time. Some art was created for this series after it was launched and I've added it.

This is a direct transfer from 21 year old master recording on a good old TDK AD120. No noise reduction was used (not present on this recorder) so, given the quality of the tape, tape hiss is audible, but not overly so.
The transfer was from tape deck (Aiwa AD-F800) to Audio CD recorder, then EAC to WAV to FLAC.

The recording is stereo, using a stand mounted mic, but the seperation is poor given the location of the seats (high to one side). The venue is what is sounds like - an old tramshed in Woolwich!!

This is an average early audience recording which, although short, I'd rate as B-

IQ were the support band this night (to Twelfth Night - first time I saw 'The Collector'!).

Despite a long call for an encore they were denied, although Peter came back with a 'good news and bad news' message - announcing a Marquee headline and that they couldn't do another as Martin had 'come over all queer!'

A very wierd night - walking through the fog in the Woolwich foot tunnel under the Thames on the way home!!
