That's pretty common knowledge at this point, isn't it?
I'm certain Phil M has uncovered some new information. Trouble is, as DavidH says, postage ...

Re: Cassettes in the UK 89-93

Interesting to hear about the catalogue of reel-to-reel boots. Do you remember when that would have been? Early nineteen-seventies, most likely '74, but it could have been a year either side. I'm pretty sure it was reel-to-reels and also it was probably sourced from the USA, so it would have been p...

Re: Cassettes in the UK 89-93

I don't now recall for sure ... Interesting stuff searchin', thanks for the info. I remember those "live material" small ads from the seventies but didn't understand them and anyway in those days I was less bothered. I also remember a Beach Boys devotee showing me a catalogue of reel-to-reel boots ...

Re: Cassettes in the UK 89-93

I'd be curious to know ... whether your copy has the recording of the band checking microphones etc at the beginning of the show ... as I haven't come across any other copies that have this. Hi searchin', thanks for your comments. I've put the tape in the 1969 section because that's how it was "mar...

Very nice site!
Thanks schnittselle, I'm glad you like it, and now there's more, I have added tapes with "1969" on the covers but some are from 1968.

Re: Chic Mystique mystery

There's a reference here http://www.monoculartimes.co.uk/monomusic/johncale.shtml (about the Cale "New York in the 60s" releases) that says "[It] sounds like elasticated shortwave irruptions accompanied by a busted cortina". There's a reference here to a Rosedale cortina https://www.easyliveauction....

Re: Cassettes in the UK 89-93

I've finally documented my tapes and set up a simple Wordpress website. Take a look if you wish https://redsleevetapes.wordpress.com I haven't finished cross-referencing the tapes to their Afterhours equivalents nor each track to any instances on LPs or CDs, but you are welcome to the site as it sta...

Re: Elliott Murphy's 'Night Lights'

Elliott Murphy is apparently 70 and living in Paris, according to The Quietus https://thequietus.com/articles/28058-1 ... pes-review. Actually he is only mentioned in passing, the rest of the article extols the virtues of 1969 Live.

Re: More scanned articles

Yup, I found some more old stuff so I've made some clumsy scans and put them on my fileshare. The new file is called Phase16_Cale_Zen and contains a press release for What's Welsh for Zen? plus some reviews from the UK press. You'll need to download the pdf and adjust the print size to suit your eye...

Gibbs was in Boston 4-5 years before Cale
Indeed he was. I ask because Gibbs appears in the student list just below Cale.
