  Venue Reviews & Notes  

  The actual bootleg came about because a person who shall remain nameless did a copy of my recording at a party in Bolton and fortunately only the one from the Rock Garden gig and not the actual Roxy gig that to date has never seen the light of day (Nor will it) then had it bootlegged on plain white vinyl in a pressing plant in France this original pressing I think had 100 initial copies done (Might have been 200 but I'm sure it was 100) and came in a plain white standard sleeve (Cardboard) on 400gm vinyl and sold exclusively through a shop in Manchester called The Record Peddlar 1981.  Then when the interest started to appear some bright spark subsequently repressed it (The version you know today as in the picture) with picture sleeve but was not taken from the audio cassette but was in fact copied from the 1st run of vinyl. If you listen carefully to the Vinyl release it has the vinyl clicks in places which were then remastered out from the one on the CD release but they took that from the Roxy Bootleg LP as shown here and cleaned it up. The sleeve version shown had 350 copies pressed no more than that and these were pressed at the same French pressing plant and sold for around £18.00 to £50+ at the time average in Record Peddlar I think varied and I saw a few sold for around the £25 mark. I never got 1 penny out of any of these nor should I have.  I suspect Gary Numan never saw any cash either. So that's the story behind the alleged Roxy LP which was in the Rock Garden gig.  And finally the track White Light is from the other Tubeway gig at the Vortex (Don't confuse that with the Mean street track on the Vortex LP)  not the Roxy one that I suggested earlier.  Sorry I hadnt checked when posting that up earlier.  I'm now sure that version was the Vortex gig as it's much poorer quality. Oh and the Cassette used to tape the three gigs was a sanyo hand held mono cassette player, Black and silver and looked like a small volvo estate. :-)
