AFGHAN WHIGS - Pinkpop Festival 1994 (Flac) *Special Post* #12

Special Post #12

25th Pinkpop festival
Draf- en Renbaan Limburg, Landgraaf, The Netherlands
May 23, 1994

As mentioned in Bootlegs of the Year, pre-reformation recordings are limited, this short 28-minute portion of the Pinkpop set in 1994 is a rarity and despite its brevity is essential listening. The radio mix is stunning and these tracks could easily be used as extras for a re-issued deluxe set.

00. Turn On The Water (end only) (0:20)
01. Be Sweet (4:03)
02. My World Is Empty Without You [Supremes cover] (5:54)
03. Debonair (4:47)
04. What Jail Is Like (3:46)
05. Who Do You Love? (0:44)
06. Fountain And Fairfax (3:37)
07. Rebirth Of The Cool (a.k.a. Miles Iz Ded) (5:37)

from the Dutch VARA/VPRO/NPS FM radio broadcast, May 23, 1994.

This recording was aired in two parts (tracks 1-3 live on the air, tracks 4-7 later the same day). The two parts have been mixed together as nice as possible.

Source and lineage (taped and transferred by Magnix): FM > Tape > WAV > FLAC level 8

Please note that this is a real FM capture, no cable, but straight from the airwaves. Also, this comes from a tape that was almost 15 years old at the time of transferring. This means that some FM and/or tape anomalies or degeneration may be present. Most has been fixed to the best of my abilities and most of this stuff is of very good quality. In this case, most of this is of excellent quality I think. (Magnix, March 2009)

Re-uploaded to DIME on April 19, 2017. Another tape from the Magnix Live Archive.
