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 on Dime had become decided to put some of these up on Dime in the hope that it might 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 on Dime 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.
Captain Ransid - August 09
This is a direct transfer from 20 year old master recording on a good old TDK AD120, using a Sony Recording Walkman and seperate Stereo mic. The transfer was from tape deck (Aiwa AD-F800) to Audio CD recorder, then EAC to WAV to FLAC.
The recording is quite quiet and thus tape hiss is fairly prominent, but not disasterously so.
The show was plagued with equipment problems including Tim Esau breaking 2 bass strings and resorting to a borrowed bass from the support band (The Host). A long segment of CD1 is taken up by this problem resorting in a short Organ solo from Martin and a rendition of the infamous 'Wiggle'.
Fascination was returned to the set after some absence and there was a change in that The Enemy was moved to mid set from being the 'traditional' set closer.
IQ played a number of Marquee headlines during 1984 and included a cover as one of the encores for most of them - this night was no different with a very prog rendition of Bing Crosby's Count Your Blessings being the choice.
