Three recordings of this concert exist, one a very good to excellent crowd recording, another a slightly muffled crowd recording from within a crowd of the rugger bugger’s mentioned below, and a really nice one done by the guy who took the photos below.
“A couple of things that amused me this gig was Ms Smith’s ashen face at the rugger bugger (he did look a bit like Gary Bushall) singing “boring” as question & answers at the start of ‘I Couldn’t Bear To Be Special” at the start, & the start of PREFAB SPROUT’s long standing ‘Spinal Tap’ approach to drummers… Tonight it was the turn of one all round good egg, Dave Ruffy”
