about 10-12 years ago, i spent most of my online time in Nightliner's Trading Room at yesfans.com.
i got to be friendly with a handful of traders there, and we started swapping other shows/bands besides
Yes in off-line trades mostly consisting of data discs via snail mail. one particular trader sent me
8 data dvds full of Roxy Music, UK, and Eddie Jobson shows they had gathered from torrent sites.
until recently, i had never backed these up on a hard drive and its a good thing that i decided to do this
recently, as the very low speed that they copied from tells me that they are starting to fall apart.

although i do like some UK and Eddie Jobson solo stuff, i really was only ever interested in the Roxy Music shows.
there are 22 different shows from 1972-1983 on these discs, and im now going to start posting them
here on guitars101 for 3 reasons-

1. this is my way of giving back for all the shows ive snagged here in the past 10 years
2. a lot of these Roxy shows, particularly the pre-1976 ones, rarely if ever show up online
3. Roxy Music is a Damn good live band, even if the source quality can be a little rough at times.

to the best of my knowledge, all folders are exactly as they were originally torrented with fingerprints and all that

ok, what follows is the original uploaders notes.

Thank You, and enjoy!!! ~Wedge

comments:
A fine concert from a classic era for Roxy Music, this was my earliest
whole live Roxy recording until a 1973 Europe show was seeded recently
on dime. Didn't think this sounded that good when I first heard it but have
balanced out the levels and remastered to disc for the 1st time with this
and it sounds okay now, not great but quite decent for this era, not much
tape or crowd noise on it, just some prime Roxy tunes nicely played and
pretty well recorded, pretty sure this is a full show. The 1st song is just
slightly less clear than the rest, probably due to the sound, not the recording,
but it's all rather consistent quality, and if you like Roxy Music and haven't
heard this show yet, I suggest you check this out. Etree has this listed as
Nov. 10th. not sure if that date or this one is wrong or maybe they played a
few nights?
Do not sell this recording.
Trade freely and losslessly.

One of my favorite 70s bands. Which sounds kind of odd actually. Thank you.
