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 steal and take the credit. Thanks.
Kicking off the 2022 restorations with this brilliant, stereo show from Skids, from their tour of the UK supporting their debut album, Scared To Dance. The information with this said it was a soundboard recording but it wouldn't surprise me if this was actually an FM recording - the basic mix was really good and there's audience noise, which is often missing on soundboards. There were also a couple of edits already in the source files where audience noise was cut.
Anyway, first job was removing quite a few tape dropouts from either the left or right channel. After that, it was EQ and some studio toys to revitalise the recording and make it clearer and less flat, before moving on to mastering to finish things off and bring the best out of the existing sound quality. The result is a really clear, powerful gig by one of Scotland's finest bands (in my humble opinion, anyway). And yes, some songs are played twice!
You can now download this repaired, restored and remastered version of this show in full blooded stereo, exclusively for free, right HERE as one 320kbps MP3 file.
If you would like to have separate, fully tagged 320kbps MP3s or lossless FLACs of the restoration, head on over to the Donations tab to see how you can obtain these for a very small donation towards the site costs. Absolutely no obligation to do so of course - you can take the file on this page absolutely for free - but every single donation does go towards this site and domain/storage costs, and helps the site stay open.
Either way, enjoy the show! And if you like this recording, PLEASE spread the news and share the page link to anyone you think might be interested - that way, I always find out which bands are popular. Many thanks.
