People who have been there say this concert was much less than Brussels.
There exist an incredible number of tapes and bootlegs of this concert,because this was the ‘official start’ of the tour (the Brussels concerts were try-outs with a much bigger repertory) and so there were many more bootleggers present.
Description: An excellent audience recording of the first official gig of the Serious Moonlight Tour.
You will hear the LP crackling at some places in the recording, which you will either love or hate, but they aren’t very loud and simply confirm this is “LP” based. I have left TVC-15 on side 1 just like it is on the LP, and you really can’t tell that it should have gone after Fame, so a pretty seamless job by the bootleggers.
The other omission of interest is Stay from the encores. Occasionally early in the tour this would be dropped.
Great quality recording!
