Messepalast, Wien, Austria
May - 25 - 1988

from SEETHELIGHT7 collection # 582

Rec. Info:
Radio broadcast ORF3, Musicbox -> Master cassette -> this cassette (1st gen) - fresh transfer in 2014.
This cassette (TDK SA90) -> playback on Nakamishi DR3 -> Olympus LS11 (at WAV 16/44) -> We transfer -> My HD -> Audacity (edit/remaster) -> WAV 16/44 -> TLH8 -> FLAC -> DIME ->
YOUR EARS AND MIND...and a greater head...
Excellent FM recording, but sadly completely out of running order and also unfortunately incomplete, as the best song "Steal to the sea" is missing here. The concert chronology
also lists "Fray so slow" as non FM track, but it is not on this tape. Anyway, and though I think that this was most likely here before, it's a fresh transfer/remaster and the
sound is quite delicious...

The second and final tape of the great CRIME AND THE CITY SOLUTION from STL7's collection. In contrast to the fine audience recording from Muenchen about ten days earlier,
this is missing my personal favourite song, but this has a complete DANGLING MAN, from which the former mentioned recording has about 2 minutes missing. I did not edit out the
short radio introduction at start, as it's only a few seconds long and jumps straight into the song. Also there's a setlist announcement before the final track.
Why the austrian radioguys mixed up the original running order almost completely (ok the final two songs seem to be at the same position as on the show) is a mystery to me.
But that seemed a common thing way back, as I had the same with a Pixies Wien FM tape a while back...
Hope you like the quality offered here, there's surely no doubt about the fine music. Join in the fun...SB.
