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.

This is a direct transfer from 20 year old first generation recording on a good old TDK D90. The transfer was from tape deck (Aiwa AD-F800) to Audio CD recorder, then EAC to WAV to FLAC.
The recording is effected by some fairly loud tape hiss, particularly in the left channel, but this is not too distracting and this is a good represenation of the gig.
This was a rather odd set with the opener being the normal set closer!
Barbell was confirmed as the forthcoming single release (due on 2/11/84) and was included in the set - becoming a regular for a while.
IQ played a number of covers as encores during 1984,this night was no different with a rather premature version of U2's New Years Day! A second encore (despite the announcement that there was no more time) was squeezed in and was the manic as ever Stomach!
The final track is an excerpt of a short after gig interview supposedly apologizing to 'Alice's Restaurant' radio listeners for a (future) failure to attend a scheduled studio guest session. Too much alcohol was imbided by all!
