Very good FM Broadcast, thanks to the original uploader on Dime.
Original Info File:
Broadcast on Dutch "free to air" FM radio (VPRO) in 1982
Recorded by Frans to cassette, digitised by Frans
A very rare (but probably incomplete) FM Radio recording of Manchester's finest post-punk/funksters, A Certain Ratio.
Recorded during a short Benelux tour at Paard van Troje in Den Haag, the recording does show it's age with a little low freq background noise in places, some interference (probably from the radio) and a little distortion during Knife Slits Water. There is also some evidence of pauses during some tracks (talk over edited out?).
All in all (& this comes from a serious collector of ACR shows), this is a gem! Thank you, Frans!!
