Re: Boots Galore - The Request Line

An odd request, as I know there are currently no tapes existing out there of the Sydney shows, but is there anyone with some connections in Australia that could get possibly get a tape? I've always found it insane that out of the 10 nights, with 7 in one city, they played in the country, only 1 show exists from it. It's easily my holy grail for Clash bootlegs, as I really love the Far East tour. It's the band completely at it's hight for me. What is also infuriating about it is that the ABC most likely has a soundboard tape in their vaults that is sitting there collecting dust. I hope someday we're able to hear something from the shows there.

Doesn anyone have the MIlan (1981-05-21) soundboard? I had no idea this existed until I just stumbled across mention of it on bmc: http://www.blackmarketclash.co.uk/Pages ... Milan.html

This is a top 3 show for me, so it'd be amazing to hear the soundboard.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

It goes on to say;

"A major upgrade advertised on ebay in 2004 has significantly the best sound. It reveals the master recording as a superb quality audience source. The sound quality is so good it appears at first that it must be from a pro-soundboard source but voices heard at times near the microphone suggest otherwise. The sound quality is so good that it must come from very close indeed to the original master recording.

The upgrade cdr is less harsh, has greater clarity, detail and immediacy than the Londonderry LP’s. Vocals and instrumentation are crystal clear and upfront, displaying none of the distance problems associated with an audience source. Bass is somewhat low in the mix but if boosted is clear and undistorted.

There is a little distortion and a lack of pro-separation but that apart it has a hugely enjoyable sound."

I'm guessing that is what you might have heard already?

Ah bummer. It lists it as a soundboard on top, but that is probably the version I'm familiar with.

I saw that, a shame because it is a great show. We do have something even better;

I always give credit where it's due. Whether it's when I'm quoting my sources when I write an essay for an English Class or when I'm posting Clash stuff on YouTube. I've always made sure to give Marky credit when I post his stuff on my channel, his hard work is very much appreciated and I've never tried to take any credit for it on YouTube, I just share it :wink:

The mega link for Christchurch 1982 Australia gig doesn't work. I'm sure I've heard this show before but have no memory of it. Love Japan/Australia clash

I don't have have Christchurch handy, but the Australia tour is great — Melbourne (I think) has a transcendent Washington Bullets.
