A second show from Numan's tour of North America in early 1980 (the other show I did back in 2012 is here). Unlike that soundboard recording, this one does feature all the songs in the set, even including the intro tape.So you also get 3 tracks not released until later in the year (I Die:You Die and early versions of Remind Me To Smile and Remember I was Vapour, from the next Telekon album).
While it is a recording from the audience, it's a pretty good one and has possibly been worked on a bit by someone before. However, I did still have a fair bit of work to do. It had to be slowed down for a start - the source files were running about 8-10 bpm too fast and Gary sounded about 12 in places... Then there were 2 bits where the sound skipped a few seconds and also some random clicks appearing in places which I fixed as best I could (try finding them now...!) and then I got to work with EQ to improve the sound a bit - the drums now have more prominence and it's all a bit clearer. I believe some tracks from the original are on YouTube if you want to compare.
2 years on and I had a listen to this and decided I could improve the sound quality further still using the newer software tools I own now. For an audience recording it now sounds really excellent I think. You can download all of this new and improved version of this gig for free HERE.
For those of you who donated for separated files of this before - email me again and I'll happily send you the new version once I've checked you against my paypal records.
For everyone else, if you would like to support the site with a small donation towards storage subscription and internet costs, in return you can have the remastered show as separate, properly tagged MP3s or even lossless files in FLAC format; head on over to the Donations tab to see how you can do this. But there is absolutely no obligation to do so.
Either way - enjoy the show!
