I wouldn't normally post bootlegs but this one is very special to me because I was in the audience. Recorded at the same venue, Which is sadly no longer there, that Rush recorded the wonderful live version of Closer to the Heart (I was there also). This concert sticks in my memory more than others probably because it was literally the loudest concert I have ever been to in my life, I swear I was deaf for about a weak afterwards
While this is not the complete show (they played Poor Little Rich Girl among others) it still showcases a remarkable band live. Heep always give there all on stage (regardless of the size of the crowd) and this night was no exception. Listen to the intro to bad blood and I can tell you there was barely 1000 people there never mind 15000.
This show was recorded barely a couple of months after David Byron's death and its nice to hear Pete Goalby dedicating the wizard to one of the greatest front men rock had ever seen
Now if anyone has a copy of Heep playing during the TT festival on the Isle of Man during the Abominog tour in '82 I would love to hear from you
