Welcome - About Live and Loud!

Live and Loud! began as a fortnightly internet radio show in 2012 taking old unreleased live concert recordings I could find and working to repair and improve them - fixing tape hiss, noise, tape drop out, clicks, speed variations, defects - before improving the sound quality by EQing the sound to bring out the instruments as clearly as possible. These are now made directly available to download for free to reach as many fans of the music as possible.

Depending on the quality of the original recording, these can often be made to sound almost like commercial recordings - but of course I can't guarantee that for every show. What I can guarantee is it will sound far better than the original files available which have been floating around the internet and on bootleg recordings for many years.

Almost all are either "soundboard" recordings (taken directly from the mixing desk used at the gig on the night) or old FM radio recordings. A few gigs, if they are of special historical importance, make an appearance even if they were recorded from the audience - these can also be made to sound better than ever.

Do your ears a favour and listen on headphones or good speakers to get most benefit - laptop speakers will always sound pretty poor by comparison.

All shows still available are listed, including a link to download the remastered show for free. If you want to support the site with a small donation, you can receive the shows as either separate MP3s or FLACs (your choice) - head over to the Rewards for Donations page and see how you can get a lot for very little!

If you want to email me, an email link is in my profile in a link in the side panel.

And finally... These are great fun to listen to but DO NOT replace original releases - support these artists and buy their music.
There is nothing you can go and buy in a regular record store here. If a gig is made available as a regular release, then it will be removed (as a couple have been already).

Show 47: Eurythmics - Night Moves, Glasgow - 25 Feb 1983

Just as they were hitting the big time, shortly after the release of the "Sweet Dreams" single, this is an interesting listen to a band who, of course, went pretty global not long after.

This was originally an FM recording and so is an excerpt of the full gig. Once again its been remastered - the original recording I had was actually at the wrong speed, which made Annie Lennox sound a bit like she was on helium! So a bit more work on this one but I hope you enjoy it!

While preparing this old show as separate files for a donator to the site, I found I could now improve the sound quality further, over what I’d originally done to the recording several years ago. You can now download this new version (as of 2019) HERE as 1 new 320kbps MP3 file.

If you would like to have separate tagged MP3s, or even lossless files in FLAC format of the new version,
head on over to the Donations tab to see how you can obtain these for a very small donation towards the site costs.

Incidentally, the setlist has been corrected a bit from what was included with the original bootleg. The radio show setlist as written differed a bit from the complete setlist as noted on Setlist.fm - hopefully correct now but I've left the full setlist here for info.

  2. Track 1 = I've Got An Angel NOT Powerful Imagination

    1. Brilliant, thanks for that. Much appreciated.
