Hello, this is a collection of masters I would like to seed here. I’ve been taping shows for more than 20 years and have an
awful lot of masters. Most of them are in the old cassette format, some others are on MiniDisc and others are on CD. I’ve
taped many shows of many artists over the years, so don’t be surprised if you will find many different artists taped! Some
shows are already circulating, some others have not circulated through collectors yet. But most of all, enjoy!
They all come from my mastertapes!


Not to be confused with the silver called ‘Trouble in Rome’, this is indeed my master tape.
This concert is well known for being the shortest Bowie full performance. At one point, after exactly one hour of live set,
Bowie left the stage. Everybody thought that he would return for the encores, but it was not the case: Bowie had already left
to come back to his hotel!

Bowie’s management never wanted to give any explanation about this, since the singer was contracted to play 100 minutes. But
a few speculations can be done: first of all, the audience was far below Bowie’s normal standards: 5,000 people attending a
show in a stadium that can hold more than 60,000! Second, the fight with the photographs, who were allowed to take shots
during the first song only (instaed of two, as usually happens). As a protest, the photographs threw their photo passes on
the stage while leaving at the end of the opening track.

The recording is quite good. As always, italian radio stroke again, putting an idiot DJ to comment all the tracks. I have
removed all the comments by crossfading all tracks. I only left the final comments at the end of Heroes, where he’s saying
that he’s pretty sure Bowie would come back for the encores, even giving the names of the songs he would perform later. Bad

REVIEW : Max1334
About the gig… It was a hot day in Rome. the 2 days festival was great. I was in the first row for the whole festival, and in the early evening I have shake my hand to Reeves Gabriels who walked in front of us. Carmen Consoli, an italian singer and composer, have the “balls” to open the day with a short set, she was on acoustic guitars and vocals, and another girl on cello. Very brave for a teen girl! Then Joe Satriani…. a great techical skill, but a little bit boring for me. Ustmamo was an italian indie band, never been son much into them (I preferred Marlene Kuntz instead). Then an electro band, Moloko. Honestly I have never heard of them before or after… Black Grape (the band of 2 ex members of Happy Mondays) have many issues with the audience, and for what I remember, their show was less than good. Then Mr Bowie. I have liked a lot the stage effects and his new “persona”, I was really into his new album and even if I’d love to hear more oldies, I have fully enjoyed the show, until…. well… until something went wrong, and he have leave the stadium. Maybe few people in attendance for him (we were 4 thousand people, no more no less)? Anyway, a great show, BUT disappointing because of the short lenght and NO encores… The day after I was again there. Bad Religion, Paradise Lost, Slayer, Sepultura, Iggy Pop, Sex Pistols. Again in front row. Another amazing night, but it was another story….
