Here we go early birds, are we sitting comfortably and are youre heads back on in the right direction...... Smile

The TOGFIADO tapes

OK folks here’s the deal. This is number 2 of 4 shows passed onto me for transferral , loving attention to detail, filling where necessary and eventual passing onto your own delicate and delighted ears….both of them……unless your Uncle Remus in which case you probably have 5.1 ears……lol.

The 4 shows provided consist of 3 Master tapes (one of which is a SBD) and a 1st generation tape ( on account of when the original Master was once lent in the eons of time, only a 1st generation copy was returned – lesson learnt by all methinks [that's this one]).

Details of each show here inc info/data info & fpt

Detailed correspondence has gone back and forth between not only but also:

flambay – SP – Unicrayon - Statusbaby & 1 or 2 others.

Precise instruction was given together with the obvious of course.

The show as you hear it here is provided as the best/with the supplied fills, available at this time.

The original-unfilled tape transferral has been kept here for any further/improved fills that may become available at a later time. Of course TOGFIADO will have them returned as soon as asked.

Here comes the thank you’s:
To Unicrayon for his dedication in pursuing these tapes and trusting me with the job of getting them to your ears. PS:…for an absolutely humoungus job on the SBD…as you now all have.
To Statusbaby again for his belief in me and passing them along for the job to be done.
To flambay our resident pitch expert (methinks he must have those Uncle Remus ears)…the correspondence between us was LARGE and I am in your debt flambay for that.
To TOGFIADO for passing on the tapes to Unicrayon and then to me-you. You have given me a ray of light into an otherwise somewhat difficult year.

Finally and most certainly not least, to my SP for without his invaluable aid the show as you hear it would not exist at all. This person as name suggests “SP” is my silent partner, and my gratitude for his help in this, and others too is unbounded.

So without further ado on with the show and yes but of course.

Since few here participate in the samples, I'll ask here. We have four first generation copies of this one. How many do you want? Regulars, please chime in from time to time so we can get a feel for what collectors want. I myself want all known taper sources. And in this case all four are B+ or better copies. Deciding which is the best in most cases is subjective. Again I myself in most cases want all the versions.

actually folks....I omitted the additional notes explaining the sample/fill part of these 4 shows.

this 1 and 1 more to come are the only ones that have been sampled...a while ago admittedly, then I was adviced that for several reasons including the attainment of these tapes themselves, that sampling would not be necessary.

Of course a gr8 deal of correspondence has gone on for these shows, with particular interest in the preceding one ...aka the Stockholm SBD......but there you Drew said, lets have them all anyway.

So keep your eyes peeled tomorrow and well be moving right along now......lolol

Actually clearing the decks here is now becoming a priority so there is going to be quite a lot ....sorry about your bandwidth folks.........but time waits for no-one.


Do what you want,do what you will,DON'T mess up your neighbours thrill.....Music is the best.

Oh, for crying out loud! This is too much!

More! More! More!

Many LARGE thanks to MrUMRK, flambay, Unicrayon, Statusbaby, TOGFIADO & 1 or 2 others for this. You (second person plural) are outta sight!

Happy New Year!

I like the interjection from the audience member about 2:51 in to "Stinkfoot". "I just scored a bit o' hash. If you got some skins we can skin one up!"

This is really a nice sounding recording.

It isn't an audience member. It's one of the tour staff (don't want to be too specific). As Michael Caine might say, "not a lot of people know that".
