A quick request. If you plan on downloading this and putting it on your YouTube channel or your own bootleg page - I don't mind. But a credit to this website where you found it, and a link back to this page would be really appreciated. It helps me gauge which artists are popular - ie more chance of other restorations coming. Don't just steal it and take the credit. Thanks.
Yes, this gig has been done before...but when a friend of mine and listener to Live and Loud! got in touch with a different recording of this show, I took a listen and decided it was WELL worth working on, and replacing the older version with this. Show 88, with over 2200 downloads - and the most popular Gary Numan show I've done so far - is now offline and replaced by this one.
In 1982 Gary Numan spent a year in the USA. While he was there, he went on tour with a unique band; Chris Slade on drums, Pino Palladino on bass, Rob Dean from Japan on guitar and keyboards, Roger Mason and John Webb on keyboards. Recordings of this tour are few and far between - and usually pretty awful quality. Somebody somewhere might still have the original recording the copy I received was taken from - but they ain't sharing if they do! In any case, I doubt without some restoration work it would sound this good...this is the best available recording from that tour being shared out to the world.
It still needed a fair bit of work but was in better basic shape than the source for the previous version was. So after removing hall reverb, lots of studio magic and some final EQ and tweaking...here it is.
The show is now available to download exclusively for free here as 1 MP3 file.
Or, if you would like to have separate tagged MP3s or FLACs, head on over to the Donations tab to see how you can obtain these for a very small donation towards the site costs.
