Originally from the blackout archives this phenominal recording met all the criteria for a really great recording it just
needed a bit of TLC. I basically re-assembled the show knocked the tape hiss back a bit, then balanced the volume between channels and tracks. I then removed most of the fades
so it ran as smoothly as possible and repaired any pops and clicks as I found them.
It still has the original cuts as listed below, I did consider splicing in the missing section from a different source of the same show. But the drop in quality of the added
sections would have ruined this lovely recording.
Finally a massive thanks to Blackout for this fantastic recording, 1978 Bowie shows don’t come much better than this.
