| Performance At Drury Lane (UK 2 LP)
at the Theatre Royal,
Drury Lane in London on 22nd
December 1981. The sound quality is a little rough, but clear,
certainly better than the 1
LP "Japan" bootleg (see below) which uses some of the same material.
gatefold sleeve, with a collage inside with various photos of the
group. The beginning of
Side C is a little odd - before Cantonese Boy there is a little bit of
song, possibly the Human League. This does not interfere with the Japan
recording as there
is a silent break before Cantonese Boy starts. The pitch of the
recording is a little slow so may need slight adjustment if your record
player can do that.
Catalogue number : JAP
Side A: Side B: Side C: Side D:
Inside gatefold sleeve of the "Drury Lane" bootleg.
|Fall In Love With Me (Japanese
Japanese version of the same album, better sound quality and with no editing anomalies. "Ghosts" lasts a bit longer than on the UK pressing, so this may be the original.
Comes in a colour single sleeve with generic Japanese clear style inners.
No catalogue number on the sleeve or labels but the matrix is:
JAP 3 (A,B, C or D depending on the side).
| Japan (UK LP)
1 LP taken from the Drury Lane recording. Poor sound quality and presented with a photocopied sleeve. Red plain labels on my copy. Avoid unless it is very cheap and if you have Drury Lane or Fall In Love With Me - forget it.
