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 first generation recording on a good old TDK D90. I obtained this from a reliable source at the time. Dolby noise reduction was used in the intial transfer 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 FLAC.

This is a fairly good relatively early audience recording which I'd rate as a B.

Peter was suffering with the tail end of a heavy cold/flu, but came through to complete the gig, and a second (unplanned) encore!

A good representation of the pre-Tales set list.
