ROY HARPER
West Yorkshire 1983 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Hoppers, Halifax, West Yorkshire, UK; April 29, 1983. Fairly to very good soundboard.

Thanks to the taper; Luciferburns and longkilt for sharing the show at Dime.

PsyKies, Dime:

A True Story - We had driven out to Halifax that Friday evening in April to see the show. Certainly we had not gone with any intention of making an illicit recording of the evening’s proceedings but that’s how it turned out. ‘Hoppers’ was some way out of Halifax and was a sort of rundown night-club, not really the kind of place I was used to seeing Roy Harper perform in. It turned out that we knew the guy doing the sound that night. He used to do PA hire for local bands and somehow had got the sound job that night. He hadn’t a clue who Roy was and seemed slightly bemused when I asked him if he would tape the show. It was an opportunity too good to miss I thought.

He said he would tape it but didn’t have any tapes except a few old ones on the floor of his van. These were duly retrieved and a sorry collection of battered cassettes they were too. We managed to salvage two or three of them and they were used to record the show. Looking back at the state of those tapes it’s a wonder anything was recorded at all but as luck would have it things went well. The mixing guy transferred the parts of the tapes that were not too badly mauled and put the results onto a chrome Maxell C90 that I later gave him. The original masters (if that’s what you could call them) were probably thrown away.
