A 2nd appearance for Joe Jackson on Live and Loud! (you can find the first restored gig of his I did a few years ago, right HERE).
This was an FM radio broadcast, originally broadcast in February 1980, and was donated by a listener to Live and Loud! a couple of years ago (sometimes it takes a while to get through these - sorry about that...!). I had to correct the pitch and speed as it was running too fast and was about a semi-tone high. It was also really noisy - FM radio noise - so I removed as much of that as I could without damaging the important stuff (the music and singing). There was only 1 really audible glitch on 1 song - fixed that. Once all that was done, I then got to work on the EQ and restoration of the sound, making the drums more punchy, creating space, with everything clearer than it was, then mastering.
The result is a really clear, powerful, stereo recording. You can now download the repaired, restored and remastered version of this show exclusively for free, right HERE as one 320kbps MP3 file.
If you would like 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 - facebook fan groups, Twitter or Instagram are a great way of spreading the word - that way, I always find out which bands are popular and can do more shows by them in the future. Many thanks.
