I first posted this from my master FM tape at torrent #188642.
A comment in that post from March 19, 2008 said that it was a little offspeed (slow),
so I have done a new speed adjusted transfer to try and fix that with this post.
This is from the same source, although the other had a CD > CD extractor step
in the lineage. this one does not. the other was posted with incomplete setlist.
this one is not. the other did not have sb alignment. this one does.
the speed was not dramatically off but enough for many to notice it.
I think this sounds considerably better, so anyone who got this before will enjoy
this even more. For the following reasons:
1: this one is from a new pitch adjusted transfer and sounds better
2: the setlist is now complete.
3: the tracking is better than in my previous post.
4: the info. is more complete, including band members, more lineage info.
and the knowledge that this recording is the complete show with no
music cut for tape flip interruptions at all (both were between songs.)

it's a team effort here on dime, every time.

thank you!!

i recorded this when it was originally broadcast on my local station, but...

recorded everything before the encores on one maxell c90, but lost the beginning of "friends of mine" to a tape flip

lost the basf c46 that got the encore of "girls on film' and lots of crowd noise years ago.

but i still have the one maxell tape and i glued my ticket stub to the show i saw at the richfield coliseum in suburban Cleveland/Akron Ohio a week or so later on the outside of the tape index card.

Duran Duran were one of the Greatest pure Pop bands to ever exist early on, and this is a Great concert from what is arguably their peak. but they really fell off the deep end right after this tour; and never really did anything i cared about later on. my opinion, of course.

looking forward to hearing this again for the first time in ages
