The last gig I bootlegged myself was Bowie on 1st July 1983. Back again after 23 years!

We hae excellent seats in the middle of the tenth row, so great view and spot on for sound. Support was from Tinytinlady - which was simply not to my taste, so I didn't record them. This does mean that I didn't capture their final song with Ric, Chris and Gerry helping them out, but I'm still sleeping reasonably soundly.

Tinytinlady did come back to provide support on Meet On The Ledge, and the vocals on the second verse were provided by Beth Gibbins from the band.

While our seats were excellent, the guy in the ninth row was very tall. This meant that I didn't manage to take many photos, and .avi was out of the question. Nevertheless, there are some snaps here (from Bowman's Return and Meet On The Ledge) and I've also used these to pull together some artwork.

Does anyone out there know which reels are in the "Fiddly Reels"?? Any help on this and I'll update the artwork.








Smashing gig. I'm happy with the sound, for which I had the MD in my shirt pocket. This does mean that every once in a while you may hear a crumpling sound between songs where I moved. Sorry!
