Sound Quality: A
Good, loud but clean. Bass guitar is prominent in the mix, but is still sharp and not dominating.

Performance Quality: A
This sounds a lot like Blackpool, being just before it, and some songs (Going Down, Shoot You Down, She Bangs..) sound better than at Blackpool.

Why should I get this bootleg?

For the great performance, and all bassists out there wanting to learn Mani’s basslines – they are clear as day on this recording, more so than on TSR.

  1. I was at this gig right down the front.It was really loud and sounded great.As they say in the west midlands…”bostin”.

  2. I was at this gig front left didn’t appreciate how big they would become .. Justin walsall .

  3. I was there too. I was 14 and it was my first ever gig. It was unbelievably good, only spoilt by some twat who kept putting his hand up my dress and I couldn’t do anything about it as I was too squashed to move out of the way. I’d like to think male gig behaviour has improved since those days.

  4. Hello,
