Cardiff University, November 7th 1985


There’s a vague embarrassment about posting this, because it is widely available and still posted at the Live80s website where you can download the MP3s.

However in the spirit of chronological sproutology, we proceed with a superb recording from the Autumn 1985 UK tour. This was taken direct from the soundboard onto cassette – hence the slightly “dry” mix without a lot of audience – but otherwise as clear as a bell as you’d expect, and more or less complete, just missing the opening of “Horsechimes”.

I’m sure there must be more recordings of the UK tour than we’ve found – Edinburgh/Salford/Cardiff/Reading/Hammersmith – so do please go digging in your lock-up (especially Tommy…) or loft.
