Roxy Music Live WHFS 05-13-1983 Open Reel


I have this post of an open reel tape I made of Roxy Music taped off of WHFS 102.3 FM on May 13 1983. I believe it was a live broadcast. During the taping, a thunderstorm rolled through the area and a couple of close by lightning strikes caused a little bit of static. The tape starts in the middle of "Both Ends Burning". Maybe I was late tuning in or just stumbled in on the broadcast. It's been almost 25 years so what can I say. Anyway, sound is excellent and of course, Bryan Ferry and the band sound great.


01 - Both Ends Burning
02 - A Song For Europe
03 - Take A Chance With Me
04 - Can't Let Go
05 - While My Heart Keeps Beating
06 - Phil Manzanera Jam
07 - Avalon With Instrumental Intro
08 - My Only Love
09 - Dance Away The Heartache
10 - Love Is The Drug
11 - You Are Like A Hurricane
12 - Editions Of You
13 - Do The Strand
14 - Jealous Guy

Do you happen to recall if this was the Roxy Music show at the Baltimore Arena? I am just curious. I attended that show,and it would be neat if this was the same show.

Hi great stuff you post. thanks for exposing me to Laughing Colors great band...I think this Roxy Music show originates from the Music Hall in NYC. I am not 100 percent sure....Lastly, do you happen to have any Motels shows? I know at one point they appeared on either King Biscuit flower hour or westwood one superstars, thanks.

Roxy Music sounded pretty great.It was one of few shows I ever saw in a big venue, I usually prefer to hear music in RnR clubs. I

yes! me too, i think that this concert was from the May 26th 1983 at the Radio City Music Hall in NYC
(so you haven't tapped this one on the 13th May!).

The Open Reel Tape is labled May 13 1983...and I doubt I put the wrong date on the tape. I am pretty anal about dating everything I recorded. Thanks for your comments!

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
