Unlike other Radio 1 programs which played pre-recorded sessions,
Mark Radcliffe sessions were actually played live on the spot throughout the programme.
Which also meant that we could hear any mistakes, cock-ups or the true brilliance of bands
which were sometimes covered up in the production room.

But not only did we get to hear some great bands do what they did best, we got to hear some studio banter by the way of questions being fired at the band. Which at times led to some unimaginable hilarious moments.
To get an idea of how that may sound, i've included all the studio banter I had alongside the tracks.
This recording as with my other BBC Broadcast torrents has come from my own personal collection of old cassettes.


Cranes - Duchess Of York, Leeds. UK - 26.11.1990 & TV Appearances (ProShot/Audience DVD)

Thanks to rp61 and Dougal2009 for sharing this DVD on Dime.

Original Info File:

This is shared on behalf of Dougal2009
I reauthored his copy in 'TMPGEnc DVD Author 3' by adding a menu and chapter marks.
The Leeds show was filmed by Shaun and is from his master VHS tape...

The bonus section is from another Cranes dvd that was shared by our good friend DutchPunkOTR.
They were part of his Blue Moon, France 1991 offering, still being seeded here...
However, because all the audio levels were very different, I decided to boost them to the same level
and incorporate them as a bonus on this dvd. I also placed them in order of appearance...

I've included some basic slipcase artwork for archiving purposes.

* Even despite these live clips show ‘October 1977’ in their start credit, most likely this is not correct. The Elizabethan Suite gig apparently dates from December 1977, so either the venue or the date is wrong in the credit.

O.K boys GET YER KANGO'S OUT and start driling!!
Received in trade early 90's with W d Su, a prolilific trader/taper from Belgium.
The tape received was listed as ANA1 making my cassette ANA2, the tape was a
Maxell type XL II 90.
The tape has remain boxed for all these years until Dimitroy upped a couple of E.N
recordings, this i believe will be an upgrade for some of you....hope so.

The sound is very good for an audience,the bass is sometimes a little top end but
really nothing too detrimental,  no details were given about the equipment used
to make this recording, there is no audience chatter or interference and captures E.N
during what for me was probably their creative peak.
