Discovered a bunch of FM concert broadcasts I recorded onto cassette back in the day. Once on my PC I put the raw file through Adobe Audition to smooth tape flip and edit DJ voiceovers and to tweak the sound slightly. I then tracked using Audacity before converting to FLAC using TLH.

Click on the highlighted tracks to download the MP3s (320 kbps). As far as we can ascertain, these tracks have never been officially released on CD.

Please Do Not Hammer The Links. Due to the size of some of the files, please be very patient when downloading the tracks. It could be that the server was very busy. The tracks should still be around. Please try again later.

Kindly email us if you encounter persistent problems downloading the files. Also email us if you have any rarities you’d like to share with our readers.
