Wonderful quality audience recording, soundboard quality. Recorded using a Walkman and separate microphone hung over the balcony right above the stage. “One of the Broken” split because of tape flip, “Cars and Girls” and “When Love Breaks Down” truncated as the taper was running out of tape. “Doo Wop in Harlem” presumed played as it was the usual closing song, but not recorded.

  1. I was at the Bradford gig, a great night and the only time i was lucky enough to see Prefab Sprout. Anyone know who the support band was for this tour/gig (possibly ‘Win’ or Trashcan Sinatras’?). Thsnks.

    1. It was Trashcan Sinatras as during Hey Manhattan Paddy sang the line “Just to think the Trashcans have played here too.”

    2. Support was Trashcan Sinatras. During ‘Hey Manhattan’ Paddy sang “Just to think the Trashcans played here too.”

  2. A brilliant gig, the only time i ever got to see Prefab Sprout, so close to the stage and hearing Bonny live was magical. I remember the keyboardist making funky moves, a quirky player yet it all sounded great. Great entertainment from start to the end and great support from the Trash Can Sinatras too and their debut album.
