TITLE: The Show Must Go On

Label: Distributed by Man of Leisure Music
(MoLM), from 1st
generation clones of the Master CDRs, first
broadcast live on WRPI 91.5 FM

SQ: A/A+ 1st quality audience recording

Source Information:

It is with a huge amount of gratitude to the
taper, who reached out to MoLM and shared this
true gem, in a trade for other rare PF roios.

The source audio CDs that were broadcast are
1st gen clones of the master discs. The
broadcast was recorded back onto a PC and
converted to SHN using mkwACT.

The original analog recording was made
with a Technics single point stereo
microphone covered with a black sock and
a Sony stereo cassette recorder onto a TDK 120
tape. Somehow, the taper was able to get his
gear into the arena with a knapsack!

Comments from the taper:

"I was seated to the left of the stage,
half way back, and used a Technics Single
Point Stereo Microphone with the Sony
TC153SD Cassette deck, which was quite a
hefty machine in those days. I used the same
equipment to record the last Wall show (17Jun81),
where I sat right at the back, so that recording
was a bit more distant than the August 1980 show."
