The Kinks
24th December, 1977; Rainbow Theatre, London
Lineage: FM (BBC) -> cassette -> Yamaha CD recorder CDR-HD 1300 -> CDR (AMQR) -> WAV (EAC) -> FLAC

Unearthed this tape recently which had surprisingly survived 31 years without any special care... This is the original live broadcast and has a few sound balance issues; it was remixed, slightly resequenced and rebroadcast by the BBC in the mid 90's (from what I can tell that version seems to be the source of most boots).

The programme overran a bit from its 1 hour slot so unfortunately there is a tape-change break during the solo in You Really Got Me - I just left a gap in the track rather than try anything remotely clean or clever - there is also a slight pitch change and quality variation on that fragment as I had to use the nearest available tape and tranfer it to something else for safekeeping.
