This is another Bowie show which I received in a CDR trade.  Once again with CDR's you can never be sure of the source material provide
however the notes that came with it stated it was from a Flac source.

So to the recording which is actually very reasonable indeed bearing it's age,and conditions it was recorded under, and is perfectly listenable.
It's not perfect by any stretch of your imagination but it's nigh on a full 1976 show which is a rarity in itself,
and consequently if you like this period in Bowie's history then you'll really appreciate this recording.

This is what the original notes that came with it said:

"Lineage: Trade CDRs > EAC (Secure) > FLAC > You

Artwork is included, courtesy of Mind-Warp PaVilion.

Tracks checked with TLH to confirm CDDA source.

OK, it's back to the Isolar Tour (1976) and another Old Gold release, although this was looking very doubtful
for quite a while. I traded this title with Cagey, and for some unknown reason all of the disks
I've tried to rip from his trades have been particularly
troublesome.

It took around two and a half hours to rip each of the first tracks -
maybe more, because I couldn't just sit there and watch it, but after that all of the other
tracks ripped without any trouble. While I didn't see it happen, the EAC text file tells me so,
but the first track of each disk had read errors and sync problems as well as several suspicious positions.
I've listened to each of these tracks and they sound fine to me, so I'm hoping that some of you fellows
here might like them also.

Sound quality is not perfect, but it's better than some of the 1974 torrents I've seeded, and also a
bit better than some of the Wembley shows. The first concert has a little low end distortion, and
also fluctuates between clear and muffled. I'm betting that the taper couldn't hold the mics up for too long. ;)
While they're quite enjoyable to my ears, I'd probably suggest they're probably not something the casual
Bowie fan might like, so please check a single file first if you have sound quality doubts.
So without any further ado, set your computer to do it's stuff, and enjoy. :-)
Note: This bootleg contained other tracks from different venues. These tracks are not included here"

Unfortunately the artwork relates to 3 Bowie concerts (4 Discs) from his American leg of his 1976
however I only received the Philadelphia show.  The shows not included were from Boston and Rochester, and if anyone
has those shows I'd be grateful if they could be seeded.

As always share freely but never sell.

Bowie is a current recording artist so support him by buying his official cd's and merchandise etc.

I hope you enjoy it and there's more to come

Cheers

Paul
