Market Square Heroes12. Three Boats Downnote: Grendel from this session is officially released on the 'Script For a Jester's Tear' 2CD remaster.Both live recordings come from a cassette copy of a band members own tapes. Can't say more I'm afraid. The BBC session was digitised directly from the BBC master reel and has never been out of the digital domain since. The Roxon session was digitised from one of the original promo cassettes - not by me. I was leant a CDR of this and I have been assured it has never been out of the digital domain after the original copy - it certainly doesn't sound like it has. The EMI demo is slightly hissy and a little distorted, I suspect it has been through 2 generations of cassette, but I got it on a CDR (with the Roxon tracks). I have not heard this session in better quality - yet!
I was curious to know what was coming after Magma - so glad to see Marillion. Thank you for these wonderful live shows!
This is going to be fun. Many thanks.
Thanks this looks great
