The Rocky Horror Show -
Live at the Belasco Theatre, New York 3-14-75

This is a recording from March 14th, 1975 of the (very short-lived)
original run of The Rocky Horror Show at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway.
It was taken from a 1/4" reel-to-reel tape kept by one of the sound
engineers at the Belasco. The show opened on March 10th, 1975 so this was
one of the first few performances. It features Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter,
Richard O'Brien as Riff Raff, and Meat Loaf as Eddie/Dr. Scott along with the
rest of the cast from the Roxy Theatre. All sound files contributed by
Justin "Muzzle" Carpenter.

The quality is excellent, and the recording is of the complete show
(including all dialogue). It was transferred from 1/4" reel-to-reel
to a chrome cassette which was played only twice, first to test and
second to record it digitally. It's very listenable, though some of
the dialogue does get very low in volume and is occasionally overpowered
by audience reactions. It's fantastic being able to hear Richard O'Brien,
Tim Curry, and Meat Loaf all on stage together though.

Thank You Justin for finally making this available to the world. I hope you don't mind
that I improved the recording by speed correcting and declicking it. I used SoundForge
to do all the editing, etc. I would not consider this a remaster, just an adjustment, and
a new rip from the Original Files, Not the Flac files found on Music World Of.....
