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 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.

Comments

This is a direct transfer from 20 year old first generation recording from a reliable source on a good old TDK D90. Noise reduction was used in the initial recording 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 NERO 6.0 to FLAC.

This is an average audience recording which I'd rate as B.

The sound is quite compressed having been recorded at high levels but is generally sound.

A well received set that was typical of the time, with the reintroduction of the 'new' Widows Peak.

A noisy rendition of the Tubes classic araps up the set.
