RE-UP: David Bowie "Ziggy 2" - 1CD - various radio shows

David Bowie - Ziggy 2 vinyl rip

Label: Tune-In (TUNE IN 002)
Audio Source: mostly radio broadcast, see info
Number of Discs: 4
Artwork: included
Total running time: 33:02

Info: Nothing that unusual here, with the first nine tracks from the John Peel In Concert recording, from Paris Studio: recorded 3rd June 1971 and broadcast on the 20th.  The final track's from the Marc TV show, 9th September 1977 (sneeze and you'll miss it).

Now that the Peel show's been in wide circulation for a goodly while, it's hard to remember that back in the early eighties it was rocking-horse shit!  I had the grottiest of grotty tapes of it - the managed to buy a copy of the original bootleg in an auction.

It was a lovely clean copy.  I plugged the record deck (not sure which) into a Hauppauge Win-TV card as a pre-amp, then used the Acoustic Solutions wave studios to chop up the tracks.  No other changes made, so the sound is as per the LP (which is notably inferior to the subsequent CD versions, with distinct hiss there).
