David Bowie 1979-05-14 Conversations with Bowie – Capital Radio.

David Bowie spoke with twelve fans in the Capital Radio studio listening to, and discussing his new album “Lodger”.

The Tape:

I traded (probably bought) this poor quality “x-gen” tape many years ago, around 1983, and a few years ago, digitised and cleaned it with Cool Edit Pro, Goldwave, and (I think) Groove mechanic. I also repaired a few parts, and I think it came out “OK”, but its not overly superb. πŸ˜‰

I’m guessing that a promotional record probably exists, but I haven’t seen one as yet, and I haven’t seen this made available to fans previously.

Of course, if you can provide an upgrade, please feel free to do so. πŸ˜‰

In relation to the official material content, it is not particularly good quality, and has been retained specifically for completism (yeah… I made that word up). πŸ˜† I recommend everybody purchase the legendary official release to enjoy it in pristine, CD or SACD quality sound.

I purchased this numbered limited edition bootleg single, back in the “old days” from one of them “dodgy” mail order services, I expect some time after 8th February 1984, if the release code is to be believed. πŸ˜‰ In fact, I purchesed 3 copies, expecting that one day they’ll have some value, considering it was limited to 500 copies. I received Numbers 298, 302, and 303. I guess the “inner Circle” got the important numbers. πŸ˜†

In any case, my copies have had very limited airings over the last 25 years, and so this vinyl rip is probably as good as it gets.
