Kilburn 1974 Live in London - original bootleg available?


I used to have this show on cassette tape, back in 1977. It was the original ‘bootleg’ release. And frankly, it was the best release of what was the best MkIII live recording. The reason? It still contained the ‘hall’ sound, the ambience, the natural reverb of the Gaumont theater.

All the ‘official’ releases knocked that ambience out. To their detriment IMO. YFNO in particular benefits from it; the amazing guitar solo (edit: and Jon’s stunning intro) sounds even more stunning in that context. I’ve tried adding ambiance to the available recordings, but never managed to get what was on that version.

SOOOO.... is anyone aware of any available copies of that original bootleg?

Re:


As there are different bootlegs of that show existing, which is the one you mean with "original release"?

Afair the show was available on a record named BBC Transcription Services. These records weren't bootlegs in a strict sense, but they weren't produced to be sold publicly. On record fairs in Germany in the early 1990's you could get these records. Perhaps the BBC transcription record of the Gaumont show has the original sound you described.
