This torrent would appear to be for the same show as the torrent here

That torrent is however a rip of unknown generation CDR's received in trade whereas this torrent has direct lineage back to the source tapes, and thus I bleive this qualifies as an 'upgrade' pursuant to Dime policy.

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 first generation recording on a pair of good old TDK AD cassettes. The transfer was from tape deck (Aiwa AD-F800) to Audio CD recorder, then EAC to WAV to FLAC.

This was a very hot gig - sweat was dripping from the ceiling!! There were concerns that the Marquee had oversold the gig on one of the hottest days of the summer.

2 new songs were included in the set, Magic Roundabout (going under a temporary name giving the title to this release) which had been played occasionally before, and The Thousand Days which got it's debut.

The first encore 'Barbell' was pre-announced to be targetted for a subsequent 12' EP release following a forthcoming studio session in Glasgow (cava studios).

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 rendition of Frankie Goes To Hollywood's chart topper 'Relax'being the choice.
