      i would very much appreciate it if you do so. all my versions up to date are very bad. culled from crickling vinyl or from bad cds culled from crickeling vinyl. so if you would go on with your remastering i would be delighted.

    Fage, brilliant again!! Very nice recording of a legendary concert. By the way, would you be willing to share your Joy Division photo collection as well? You always pop up with photos I had not seen before.



    1. My photo collection? Sorry..but no...

  4. A great thank you from next.musicblog.fr ! !

  5. slight improvement, but the sound of all three moonlight gigs is mediocre to hopeless giving this recording 9/10 is a joke, i have no doubt i can improve on these recordings but they are welldown my list of jd concerts in need of improvement, try colony sep 79 by birdandthe on you tube and you will see the difference !!!

    1. okay...I listened colony..
      and I can tell a few comments:
      1. mystical noise at 15(or 17) Mhz (appx.) (absent in a source file)
      2. mystical reverberation (absent in a source file)
      3. pitch not corrected...

      //sorry for my english
