Berlin 1978 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the Deutschlandhalle, Berlin, Germany; February 15, 1978. Mix of mostly soundboard and some audience recordings.
While this show has been shared among fans, this is probably the best-sounding version.
Thanks to NeedleDeeDee for sharing the show at The Traders’ Den. Thanks also to jaypfunk, Drew51, DogBreath, WIU2B and everyone who put in the effort and made this possible.
JAYPFUNK LOW GEN SBD TAPE/DREW51 2011 NEW TRANSFER
This 2012 entry marks the long awaited return of the 1978 02 15 Berlin SBD recording to FZ Shows thanks to the generous tape contribution by jaypfunk and professional 2011 tape transfer by Drew51. This fresh transfer from JPF’s low generation SBD tape has been speed corrected and patched to completion using the excellent DogBreath AUD MC recording for fills (thanks to the generous tape contribution by DogBreath and professional 2012 tape transfer by WIU2B). The entire performance runs 153 minutes and 39 seconds and although the SBD tape does exhibit the element of tape hiss, it is an excellent solid A grade listen representing the best sounding version of the SBD tape acquired and assembled for FZ Shows to date. Enjoy this historic FZ time capsule performance of 34 years + past, presented to FZ Shows @ Zappateers this Leap Day 2012.
