The recording you have the exclusive opportunity to have on this blog is a recording of a Gillan show in Zagreb from the tour 1981,shown on the Croatian (then Yugoslavian) national television on the New Years night 1982,I remember it like it was yesterday.This is found on a tape with a 26 year old recording ,recorded with a mono cassette recorder leaned on the speaker of the TV.I ripped this recording into mp3 format just before the tape decomposed (figuratively).The recording is still more or less very fair,with some mistakes caused by time.There are short bits that were cancelled and few more bad things that happened to this tape,as;the second part of Bite the bullet and New Orleans were on the b-side of the cassette,which probably passed near a magnet,so the sound is contantly changing from low to high all over again.I tried to fix it,amplified the silent parts,and the result is not that bad.All in all,this is a pure collectors item,and surely a gift for all the fans of this great band.I loved and followed Gillan band,so this is for me like pure gold.I hope it will be for you too.Recommended.
01-the bass player John McCoy produced one of the Yugoslavia`s top selling Rock album,Mrtva Priroda by Riblja Corba.
