review by Scott M
Upgrade of previously circulated cassette recording.
Although far from perfect, this is a decent upgrade of the old cassette recording. Possibly 'cleaned-up' and tweaked by some budding Martin Hannet wannabe on their PC, or perhaps just a higher generation recording than was previously circulated.
The old recording was very muffled, this is far more tinny and thin. Almost fuzzy in places. However, there are no noticeable cuts or glitches, and the sound appears to improve as the show goes on.
There are obvious problems with the sound mix from the beginning. At one point John calls for patience while its sorted, and warns the crowd: "If you want shit, that's exactly what you'll get…" Luckily, they don't get shit, and by the end of the show John seems to be thoroughly enjoying himself.
All in all, an average performance and recording from 1982 for the die-hard's.
