I still have a lot of cassette tapes at home. Some of them contain from radio recorded live shows.
I'm starting digitizing the tapes now. Too late of course, they are already deteriorated, but better now than never.

Wednesday, August 19, 2020, 12:53 PM - Music, - UK
Electric City is a much sought after lp of Bob Downes Open Music, and therefore expensive.
This is a much affordable album, with a couple of the same songs.
Not very well produced, sounds like a demo session.
On the mfp (Music for Pleasure) label.

Side one:
1 Too Late
2 Day Dream
3 Walking On
4 The Wrong 'Bus
5 Popular Cheam

Side two:
1 Don't Let Tomorrow Let You Down
2 Jasmine
3 Got No Home
4 We All Enter In
5 Thebes Blues
6 Hollow Moment
7 Circus Rising

The vinyl rip has some scratches...

Guess what, that smile came again.

The Crazy world of Arthur Brown - Live at Le Guess Who festival in Utrecht, 2015-11-20 
Friday, November 27, 2015, 11:05 PM - Music, - UK, English
I have to admit: I wasn't expecting too much when I went to the concert of this 73 year old veteran. But I wanted to see this legend one more time.
The last time was in 1972 at the Hammerveld Jazz Festival in Roermond. No special good memories of that performance.

What a relief: the man was in very good shape and so was his voice and band. 'Godverdommer' he shouted at the delirious audience. A smile appeared on my face on the first notes and didn't went away.
I completely forgot to turn on the recorder on my phone, so this recording fades in at the fifth song of the set.
