The current video source we have for 15/04/91 (which can be downloaded here http://www.ababwa.com/Las/Live/ BTW) cuts in abruptly during I.O.U., were as your copy seems to be complete. Would it be possible for you to transfer the tape to PC and upload it somewhere?

Oh and for anyone wondering, the label Bxl, AB stands for; Bruxelles, Ancienne Belgique.

Edit: Actually your copy is also incomplete isn't it, missing the last three tracks. But it's still longer than the video.


Well, I checked my old database (I transfer my database from FileMaker to mySQL a few years ago, and I lost a few informations), and the show is complete :

1 son of a gun
2 freedom song
3 ?
4 ?
5 way out
6 timeless melody
7 i.o.u.
8 i can’t sleep
9 there she goes
10 doledrum
11 ?
12 knock me down
13 feelin’
14 ?
15 liberty ship
16 ?
17 failure
18 lookin’ glass {tape flip}

and it's a first copy. If I remember, the sound was pretty good, excetp on lookin' glass, where someone is talking to the taper.
i am transfering the tape on my computer now, I will upload it somewhere as soon as possible.

Is it not just classed as a suburb Kev?

Bootle is a town not a suburb.

If I did list it as Bootle though I'd have to list all the London boroughs and the like as well. Though just checking now - Bootle is listed as a separate postal district. So maybe I should use that as the deciding factor?

Should be Bootle, Merseyside it's the same with Kirkby & Huyton there not actually in Liverpool.

Yeah, two lines down from that though it says;

"It forms part of the Liverpool urban area"

:P

We could argue all day about this but unless someone comes up with a better solution I've decided to go with the Royal Mail post town codes as the barometer. Which would mean for example Bootle will be listed but Huyton and Kirky won't.

Is that ok with everyone?

It's outside the LCC boundary so it's probably Bootle, Merseyside.

I just looked at the trading list of a friend of mine.
He taped the Strasbourg '91 show.
the show is 70 minutes length
taped on a Sony WM-D3 with a Sony PC62 microphone.

I don't have much more information, but I will ask him if he can copy it.
