I expect anyone within range of these two couldn't hear a thing over the inane chatter

Aah - those lovely tapes made in the olden days at nighters where the records become background noise to inane chatter - glorious.

Speaking off which - do people still do this - I mean, take tape recorders (or the Y2K equivalent) to all-nighters ? A few years ago, Randy gave me loads of C90s from several different nighters - great little slices of history.

How do people feel about this practise ... is it legal, immoral - what do other members think about this ?

I've got loads from late 70s early 80s. I took them along cos I could never remember who sung what etc. Especially at Stafford when you could have 20 or more 'first time out' tracks.

I have a great one of Gary Rushbrooke's last set at Stafford, where he plays a female vocal (see-memory of a goldfish), and you can here me say to my mates, 'what a fucking record.' My brother always says it to me when it is played now.

I would love to have more from that era.

i too have got stafford tapes.(still dont know what keb darge was saying half the time) as you say great slices of history.At the time we thought it was a bit naff to do it but im so glad one of us did.There was so much new stuff being played and you just wanted to get to know it as fast as possible so you could get on that dance floor as soon as you recognised something.

I went to a night in the early 90's where the promotor actually taped the whole evening and sold the tapes to people, I still have mine.

I don't suppose that a tape with music on is much different to the dvd's being put out now of the weekenders! I have the prestatyn one and there are about 5 hours plus of the music on there. Not got around to watching the cleggy one from last year yet, got to get one of the boys to show me how to use the dvd player ;-)

There's nothing wrong with this practise and I have loads I did from '78 onwards at various venues, all with dubious chatter in the background. It was a great way of keeping up with what was being played by whom and so on. remember this was a time when there wasn't the wealth of accessability to sounds etc that there is now. I do miss going into a venue and seeing the banks of recorders lined up along the stage and near the speakers.....oh how we laughed as we'd record 'hidden' messages for those foolish enough not to b keeping an eye on their recorder :-))))

Immoral? Kolla get a life you Scots wally :-) (lol) Your turning into Jason from Big Brother, but obviously a lot shorter!!!!

Me? I didnae say it was immoral, ya wee toe rag. Don't you going trying to drag my good character down to your level.

I believe we should all be free! Free to do what we wanna do....

And i'm guessing by your last comment you're owning up to the fact you watch BB.... Ha Ha as Nelson Muntz would say!
