Pretty good audience recording from master. Like all the recordings done in big open air stadiums
it misses some bass, i'll added some but you can't do too much about it, since basses are not present
too much on the recording. It was a really windy day, so sometimes you'll listen to some wind
noise on the mics. It was recorded about 50 meters from the stage, central position in the middle of
the audience.

Master cassette > behringer ultra curve pro deq 2496 audio equalizer > tascam audio cdrw750 > plex tool professional XL > wav > flac.

According to some friends from the DS trading community this is an uncirculated show. A special
thanks goes to Dan M. for his precious help.

  1. Hello. I have noticed you have many versions of David Bowie 1974-09-05. I was fortunate to have been at that show. Could you tell me in your opinion which version has the clearest sound quality? Thanks. You can reach me at Thanks, from Arizona Jones
