Remastering Notes:-
Okay here is my take/version of this amazing tape.
One can only wonder at what is out there & waiting to be shared.
Mike Joyce has a box full of rehearsal recordings that would be cloud 9 to listen to.
Until that day comes (if ever!) this is what we have.
The back cover omits what is the 6th track "I Don't Owe You Anything."
Noise reduction was used very sparingly,
just a touch, there is still hiss [to remove more would have flattened the sound].
The above lineage tells you everything that went on & into this version.
It was always going to be difficult making these songs sound good.
The fact they were recorded with just a mic & tape deck way back in '83,
means the actual recordings were not brilliant to start with.
I did what I could to bring them a bit more to life, I think it souds a lot better for the work i've done,
you must decide for yourself, it is not a big download & you can always delete them.
There are some (rather rubbish) photos of the LP, sorry for there quality (or lack of it),
if anyone has better ones please post/share.
**Please don't profit (sell) this, freely has it been given to you, so please do likewise.**
**By all means share/swap/seed [especiaaly seed!] but don't sell.**
If you want to convert it to a lossy format who am I to tell you no?
You will do it anyway!
If you do please keep the bit rate as high as you can (320 ideally),
if more people get to hear and enjoy it then all the better,
but please keep these notes with any sharing that you do, thanks.
