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, cut out the intro and outro and take the credit. Thanks.
Originally an FM radio broadcast and not quite the complete gig - some encores are missing, I think. It sounded a bit "tinny" although it was pretty clear. According to the blurb with the bootleg, Happy House was recorded from a later broadcast of the same show. There are a couple of versions of this bootleg out there - 1 with fewer tracks than the other. And the setlist listed on Setlist.fm for this venue doesn't even have Happy House listed at all! Setlist.fm isn't always accurate, so who knows... Happy House is listed at some other gigs around that time as being played as an encore, so I went with what the text file accompanying the bootleg said, and blended it in on the end here.
What Was Done
I removed various things like a bad click after Nightshift, a weird short hum and quite a lot of FM interference noise from Voodoo Dolly. On the original, Voodoo Dolly was cut off and Happy House started - I faded out the former, while editing the latter so it blends together better. Volume was a bit up and down in places - fixed that.
Once that was done, I got to work with EQ and the usual studio toys to bring back some bottom end to the recording and some clarity to the sound mix - you can hear Steve Severin's bass far better now and John McGeoch's guitar sings clearly without hurting your ears. Budgie's drums are also clearer. I then mastered to make it clearer and more powerful overall. The result is really really good; I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Supporting The Site
If you want to support the work I do on these recordings, and the site, and (if you wish to) obtain separate, fully tagged 320kbps MP3s of this restoration for less than the price of a coffee in return, or lossless FLACs or even a lossless copy on CDR, head on over to the Rewards For Donations tab to see how you can obtain these for a very small donation towards the site costs. There is 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, and helps me do more shows. Either way, enjoy the show.
