1980 05 08

~~ Source #2 master clone patched with source #1 2nd gen. ~~

I am very pleased to present this new source (to our tracker anyway) of the infamous Mudd Club appearance by FZ and company, Spring 1980. This excellent capture was made by ANON X. on his TC150 Sony recorder and amazingly did not circulate among traders until a few years ago when realomind made the transfer and shared it to Dimeadozen. Due to Dime rules though, a few songs had to be deleted in that original seed (which made its way here to the shoebox). Fast forward to a month or so ago when realomind was very kind enough to send me the complete show as recorded by ANON X. in all its glory. A great show and FZ is clearly enjoying himself. Must have been a fun night to get past the rope and join the folks on auto-destruct. You can hear a few glasses and bottles hit the floor throughout the show.

With the help from flambay, some speed and phase corrections were made along with some re-tracking and a patch at the beginning of "Love Of My Life" from our source #1 seed already on the tracker as seeded by Amnesia Vivace a while back. I think you'll agree that the sound quality of the ANON X. source #2 presented here is better and a very nice addition to the Zappateers collection. Huge thanks to ANON X. for sharing with us and for realomind for getting us the complete tape to seed here. Cheers gentlemen!

Always interesting what these little vintage tape recorders were capable of.

I can't believe how stupidly excited I am to get to hear this.
Also, I can't believe they squeezed all their 1980 equipment into that corner of the room and only played for an hour.

Wow, it sounds pretty great, thanks! I'd rate this in the A-/B+ range.

Not sure this show is worthy of an official release (solid performance but very short and with no surprises in the setlist). There are probably more interesting concerts from this band awaiting to be released. This said, this crystal clear tape sure is a very enjoyable listen.
