The Netherbow Recordings
We recorded a whole bunch of tracks in the Netherbow Arts Centre in 1975?. The Netherbow had a small broadcast studio in the top level, and although it was never really designed for recording bands, it was our first attempt at proper studio recording.
Five of these tracks now appear on RARE.
The farewell concert was also recorded but never published.
These tracks that were recorded but never released, are they going to be made available ? I’ll buy it !!
Netherbow was 1975. At least, that was the date of the watercolour painting I did of the band from photos I took then. BTW – who has that painting? I think it may be Angela?
Re: older recordings remastered:
I’m a recording engineer by trade and would be very interested in helping restore any previously unpublished live or studio recordings. I would also love to try to produce copies of “Ten Maidens Fair” and “Give Me Jesus” that are not clipped.
Please release more of your early recordings and live recordings, even if you are just releasing them as MP3s in their original state, unmastered, on your Bandcamp page. Audio quality is not a deterrent.
