Public Image Ltd. Studio Rehearsals 1981 - 1983


Public Image Ltd. Studio Rehearsals 1981 - 1983

Sound quality is 'A'.

Info below from the original file, theres more info in it but its all mixed in with garbled ASCII bullsheet, I'm pretty sure I got the nuts and bolts.

Seems these sessions are from rehearsals for the Commercial Zone lp that was shelved and turned into This Is What You Want.

Info below from source:

"Notes: two offer up some interesting unreleased material from what appears to be two separate events. A series of incomplete tracks, possible roughs or demos, assumed to be from Park South Studios in N.Y.C. in prep for the imploding "Commercial Zone" LP. On the other reel we have a tour rehearsal or soundcheck, also undated (82 or 83) and apparently uncirculated. Many Thanks to JJL69, spunk01, and powow for helping identify this material. The ? in the lineage is, as best as could be described, supposed 10" Reel to Reel > Cassette > Cassette, mine being the 2nd gen. No lineage on the reel 2 reel, but close to the original source. The story as told to me is: the UK arm of the American record company that Public Image recorded for had some reels hand delivered from the UK to America sometime in 1983. During that process, the reels were dubbed to cassette, and those were the cassettes that I made copies of (so my 2nd gen tape to you). The reels we could assume to be at least 2nd gen, but thats only a guess. I am unaware if these shows have ever been traded before."

I checked some of the others post and they are all working fine.

I check my mediafire account and this has been downloaded 43 times so far so it works.

I think they are having some server issues.

I did re do the link but got them same error. it does state that its a server issue on their end.

I guess try again at a later date

It works now.

it does have now 89 dls plus I just dled it twice from 2 different pcs in the house.

I'm not sure what happened on mediafires end with the server this one must be stored on but everyone should be able to access it now.

Any chance you could upload those rare NMA gigs you once mentionned??
tks

louissyfer said...

sure once i get time to actually rip them from cassette to mp3 and since the home pc crashed about a week ago it keeps getting longer and longer until I can actually get to them.

I did post 2, i was able to rip the 2 shows for the original owner of the tapes requested, i believe they are the most recent NMA ones.
