Also the mythical encore with the only Topper Straight to Hell.
?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
Supposedly the Lochem boot we have is not the full concert. There are rumors of an encore including Straight to Hell which would be notable as the only live Topper performance of that song. It's mentioned on bmc including a quote from someone there.
Yes, I've read about it too, would make sense that they played it.
Maybe. Seems strange that neither the audience tape or the FM broadcast has the encore though.
The audience tape was proven to be a hideously mangled remixing of the FM source processed to sound like it was from an authentic taper. The FoH sound is all kinds of wrong for a supposed tape recording of an outdoor festival. I dunno...some prankster thought he was earning himself street cred with that one.

So we still don't have the encores because the one and only source is the SBD from the radio station. The reason the tape cuts off before Clampdown is complete is because the security situation at the festival was getting hairy, so the station booked it out of there hastily at the end of the main set and was not around at all for the encores. STH is widely rumored, but the encores would've been regular-length so we're probably missing 4 or 5 songs. Unfortunately since the broadcaster fled the scene there was no one recording the soundboard during the encores, so the only hope we have is for a legit audience tape to surface.

Ah now all that makes sense. Such a shame to be missing all the encores. What is the point of trying to pass of a tape as legit when people are soon going to suss it's been doctored. Totally pointless exercise and just causes more confusion. I'm all for repairs to tracks and improvements in overall sound quality and speed adjustments etc but to fake something that doesn't exist why bother. Cheers again for the info Ratty nice one.

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Carry On Julie. What was that, the theme tune to a Sid James/Barbara Windsor film?

I know, I looked it up on BMC. I assumed before I looked that it was Julie's been working for the drug squad.

So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

My actual first bootleg was the show from the 5th Oct 81. My friends brother used to "roadie " with the band when they played Manchester, These gigs were great as the first 10 rows of seats were removed, Support was Theatre of Hate. The night after the show-6th Oct- I was played the 5th -taped from behind the stage.

Vinyl shows were Klashing with the Clash https://i.ebayimg.com/thumbs/images/g/a ... s-l225.jpg

and Cardiff 77

My copy has a different back cover with a more appropriate photo:

About the wrong titles I think it's a mistake made on purpose, if anyone wants more information:
