... And Bootlegs For All




Megadeth - Live in Zwolle, Holland, 1988

 Venue: Aardshok Festival, Ijsselhal: Zwolle, Holland
 Date: May 29, 1988
 Time: ?????
 Size: 1 CD

 Sound: SBD/FM, A+
 Notes: Some general information. There were 6 bands on the bill of that great festival - Vicious Rumors, Sanctuary, Nuclear Assault, Flotsam & Jetsam, Testament and Megadeth. The sets of four of them were partially broadcast over the radio: Vicious Rumors, Sanctuary, Testament and Megadeth.
Here are the comments of a person who shared his great archives in mid-2008: "Recorded with a AKAI GX-F35E tapedeck in the year these were broadcasted by Vara's Vuurwerk, a weekly Heavy Metal Radio Show hosted by the Dutch famous Henk Westbroek. 2008 transcription done on a Denon DRM-600 tapedeck with 32bit resolution in CuBase 5.1 and cut/ edited with ProTools 5.0.1 on a Macintosh G3. Some minor hiss, RF-interference and lots of distortion is there."
I used to have the SBD/FM source but this one is really better in quality - real FM stereo (to my ears at least). The new source has a full intro, which I did not have and it is a great addition but it does not have "Anarchy:" recorded. So I just made a matrix of two sources. Still the broadcast is just a half of what was performed by the band. It amazes me what songs the radio guys took out - Peace Sells for example!! You can hear band goes into pre-"These Boots" bass/drums doodle after "Devilís Island", but it cuts. I also have complete audience recording
Dave: 'Hello Holland! This is out second time here, and it makes us feel very good!'
