BBC Transcription Disc Islands 1984
Recorded from the Islands Hammersmith Odeon show, this concert was broadcast live on Radio 1 in 1984. This very rare item is the BBC album of that show, produced for broadcasting purposes only. The introduction to the concert is read by Radio 1’s Richard Skinner.
This vinyl belongs to ‘Steve AKA theraggedtiger’. He tells me how he actually recorded this show in 1984 and still has the TDK tape, a little more worn than it started! A couple of years ago this item came up for sale from someone in the US and although the price was rather high, Steve just had to have it in his collection.
I’m delighted that he bought it and shared it with KajaFax, it truly is a piece of band history.
The track listing on the album is:
On a Plane
The Power to Forgive
Lies and Promises
Melting the Ice Away
The Lion’s Mouth
Turn Your Back on Me
Ooh To Be Ah.
Steve has uploaded a video of the Continuity Introduction and Big Apple:
It’s a pleasure to see such a rare item.
