OMD Rose Bowl Pasadena 06/18/88

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Rose Bowl, Pasadena, CA, USA
1988-06-18
Opening for Depeche Mode
Incomplete audience recording

A good audience recording. Two sources were used to help create the most complete recording available. "Maid Of Orleans" is still incomplete due to tape flip, but now has about 10 seconds added from the second source. The recording has no other missing music, as far as I know.

Emmett's recording was shared on DIME before but was dual-mono due to a tape deck issue (one channel did not play back correctly so the intact channel was pasted over the damaged one). This version is stereo, as it appears on the cassette. Emmett's source consists of tracks 1 through half of 7; the remainder is FStop67's source.

Emmett also taped Depeche Mode's set, but only the first nine tracks of his recording exist today. The second tape is missing or lost, unfortunately. Due to the fact that the audio was officially released on the '101' video and CD releases, I cannot upload the audience recording to DIME or my live wiki. A transfer of Emmett's DM recording circulates, but it is 128kbps MP3 converted to FLAC. That one is also dual-mono. I retransferred DM's set when I had Emmett's tape, of course. You may find 90-second snippets from each song on the live wiki: depechemode-live.com/wiki/1988...sadena,_CA,_USA

The FStop67 tape has some of the second half of DM's set (which tracks exactly is unknown), but the tape was returned to the taper and the person who transferred it must have discarded the transfer of DM's set since it is not possible to share the recording on DIME. It is unlikely that the recording will be available in the future, but I will remain hopeful.
