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.

Original Comments

This is a direct transfer from 20 year old low generation recording on a good old TDK D60's. 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.

As this was the first time that the boys had played 2 consecutive nights at the Marquee the sets for each night was quite different!

The set opened with a Widows Peak, rather than the 'traditional' opener, A+N.

Pete announced that the reason why this was the first gig for a while was that they had been writing some songs and then premiered the embryonic Magic Roundabout (as yet untitled) which segued, via a little instrumental bridge, into Hands, followed by Gateway.

Martin showed off a little and played the rarely performed solo, My Baby Treats Me right.... into The Enemy, as per the album, to wrap up the set.

A great pair of encores - the first was a real hark back to old days 'Beef In Box', with the boys being joined by Carmine - for the first time for a very long time. The second was the Human League's Open Your Heart!
