This was an FM radio broadcast I found on the web (I forget where) and is a great early show from the Rats - a very powerful performance. This gig catches them at a pivotal point in their career - Rat Trap was due to be released a few weeks later and would become their first number one single in the UK.
While the source was pretty clear and in decent condition luckily, a bit of EQ and remastering certainly hasn't done this any harm at all - enjoy!
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 2018) HERE as 1 new 320kbps MP3 file.

Benefits from remastering and superior to Rock goes to College video, where parts of songs are missing. Great gig. Thank you.ReplyDelete
