Always fascinates me that live (and rehearsal) recordings of JD have infrequently continued to surface ... decades on from the end of the band.

Looking back to 1980, and the 15 UK gigs JD played, recordings of 10 of those UK gigs are out there  ... but will anything from those remaining 5 gigs ever surface ??

Ive never heard of any rumours of a tape existing for the New Osbourne Club on the 7th Feb, nor the poorly attended Bristol Trinity gig in March (potential debut of 'Decades' ?)

A tape of the Rainbow gig in April exists, but its never been shared  ... and Bury Derby Hall was allegedly professionally recorded (by Harry De Mac ?) - but due to the likely content / problems that night, it has never seen the light of day

Given the high attendance at The Factory II gig in April, always thought it was strange that no one bootlegged this gig ...given the rising popularity and awareness of JD

We, of course, continue to live in hope ...

There is also talk that the evening performance of Eric's was recorded - but it has never surfaced.

Neither of the Bristol gigs have ever come to light - my wife and I would love to see that happen as she attended both - and took the only photos currently available from the Colston Hall show when she was 15.

Good point Lee .. i forgot about that other Eric's show [wink]

The second Bristol show has always intrigued me ... Ian supposedly singing with his eyes shut for most of the performance would certainly provide a unique vocal

There was a small possibility that New Osbourne was recorded by the same person that recorded Bury Derby Hall (which was likely taped over) but the taper wasn't sure? Neither recording seems to have survived. At least the written set list for Bury came to light last year, thanks to Graham Duff!

Thanks Robert. Big shame indeed that neither of those tapes survived ...
