Ok so this is another one I received in a postal trade from way back and again it's the
first time I've ever shared this outside of snailmail trading so it might be a new show for some.
Soundwise on this is pretty good. To me it sounds like most shows recorded at the Arena in Manchester, in fact after Motorway City
a couple of guys are talking about they can't hear the drums at all.
As I've said before taping shows normally tape the sound that the folks are listening to. If the PA is crap and so
the sound is crap from the stage the recordings will always reflect that.
So to the quality well it's a good listen and your ears do adjust to the sound which doesn't
fluctuate at all. So I'd pitch this at 6 pushing 6.5 or VG+ pushing EX-
My thanks as always to the taper for recording this I really do appreciate your efforts. Also to the trading community
back in the day.
As always share freely but NEVER sell. Don't covert to lossy unless for personal use.
Lets remember Hawkwind are a current active touring band:
So support them by going to gigs, buying their cd's and merchandise etc. I will be there in Manchester to watch them in September 2021 and I'll be buying their new LP Somnia.
Check out their official website here: http://www.hawkwindmuseum.co.uk
Also check here for the bands current trading/recording policy: http://www.hawkwindmuseum.co.uk/trading%20rules.htm and this recording is allowed by the band under those rules.
You can also find detailed info on their re-issue back catologue here: http://cherryred.co.uk/atomhenge/main.htm
Lets keep those motors running.
