  1. Thanks!
    I shared audience version couple of years ago on Perfect Purple. I guess they took it and at least shared it with correct date. For ages, this FM broadcast was dated as first Cardiff night (14th Sept)

  2. Let’s see how definitive this is as I have the radio show LPs. It’s a bit sad to see that official archive releases concerning Rainbow and Deep Purple (at least featuring the man in black) have basically stopped. I know for a fact that the two Cardiff shows are available in full in record company archives. Instead we get dubious 1979 releases, apparently licensed by R.B. It’s been a mess these past few years. All the more thank you for your invaluable services!

    1. @Yeoman: Any chance to share the radio show LPs on FLAC, maybe even beats the Bootleg “Captured Live Revised” in sound quality. Would be awsome !

  3. I really appreciate every single upload that is happening here. My personal hobby is to get from every date the best possible Bootleg talking about sound.

    From this date (1983-09-15) I prefere the Bootleg “Captured Live Revised”.

    In many cases thanks to this site, I could upgrade some older Bootlegs – Thanks !

  4. @Yeoman:

    I supose you have that VINYL:

    The CD from the VINYL is:

    A CD Remaster/upgrade exists:

    I think the “definitive” version is “Captured Live Revised”, surely based on the Radio show LPs but with sound “remastered”.
