Welcome to Live80
Here you can find some never previously released live recordings with just a few of the bands I worked with in over 20 years of touring the world.
After years of listening to these tapes at home I finally decided it was time other people got to hear them as well.
Featuring: - Everything But The Girl, Prefab Sprout, Fashion, The Bureau, Gina X, The Kane Gang plus some rare studio recordings
**UPDATE December 15th 2012**
Just found out some of the links are not working currently re-uploading all the files, they will all be back in a few days - if you find any not working please email me
I have seen a review of this web site on a couple of blogs and they mentioned these are audience recordings, they are not as you can see from what i've stated below!
All these recordings were recorded straight from the out front mixing desk (soundboard) direct to cassette and transferred to digital with the original tape via a creative 24 bit USB sound card and into Sound Forge, edited and turned into 320kbps mp3 files (except the Petrols tracks, which are taken from the original 24 track digital mix's) and all recorded between 1981 and 1994
As with most soundboard recordings the audience level sounds less than it actually was.
Each page has some tracks to listen to before deciding to download any of the zip files (winrar)
All the tracks are meant to be seamless but due to the nature of mp3 files which adds a small silence at the start and end of each file, you may want to edit them before burning to cd to get them playing the way they should be heard.
THE MUSIC SUPPLIED HERE IS NOT TO BE SOLD OR TRADED, ITS JUST FOR YOUR LISTENING PLEASURE
If you like these live shows please go out and buy the artists albums.
If anyone associated with any of these bands has a problem with this site e-mail me and I will remove the offending links - E-Mail
