This is the infamous first BBM live gig. Where according to the band,almost everything went wrong,and they wanted to split up immediately after it.
Comments of this can be found in this torrent

I have two different sources for this gig. The other recording of this sounds slightly better. However its only 73 minutes,and also all inbetween songs chat and tuning time,which there were a lot of at this gig is left out.

This recording was running to fast so its been pitch corrected -1,18 semitones. Seems they played very loud on the night,so I also decided to take the edge of the bass, as this was a way too bassy recording,so I've done some EQ'ing aswell.

What else can I say about the recording,well there are some faults.First of all the traded disc I recieved had two versions of "Naked Flame" following eachother,so someone had been a little sloppy when transfering from tape to disc.
Soundwise already 1:10 into the first song there is some problems which I couldnt fix,and there is occasional mic fondeling through out the gig,luckily mainly inbetween the songs.

Well as this was a rather lousy recording initially,this is the reason for the small size of the torrent btw,I hope my work on it has improved it somewhat,and after all its not a recording many have anyway,so feedback from those who do would be nice.

If someone has the short pro shot video of BBM from Midtfynsfestivalen,Ringe,Denmark from june 25th 1994 ,a posting of the recording would be very nice.
