DAT Tape Recording of Prince at Wembley Arena 20.06.1990 ____________________________ ____________________________ ____________________________
This was given to me by a retired sound engineer a few years ago.
The recording was taken from the front of the stage at Wembley Arena on the 20th June 1990.
The recording is in stereo at 48KHz. It runs for just over 90 minutes.
The track listing was hand-written on the DAT tape insert, with a few uncertainties for some tracks (Improv or medley?)
What I love about this recording is that between songs, you can hear the audience in the background.
You can hear them chatting, laughing and cheering. You just don't find that on official 'Live' recordings.
It has a certain 'honesty' about it.
The 'Banter' from Prince before and after each song is truly amazing, and you can feel the energy of the concert as if you were there in front of the stage.
The version of "Purple Rain" performed here is, at least in my opinion, the best live performance I have ever heard.
The guitar solo at the end adds to the amazing atmosphere that was there that night.
The recording is very professional, and the levels perfect throughout the tape.
I would like to point out that as far as I am aware, there were no official recordings released.
There was a release of his "Nude Tour" but the CD was a recording of an FM radio broadcast in Germany.

I have uploaded a 3 minute sample of the beginning of "Purple Rain" here:
This is truly a once in a lifetime chance to purchase this recording.
The tape can only be played in a DAT deck, so I can also include a USB drive with the WAV (Lossless) audio on.
I am offering free UK delivery on this, but I am prepared to post this worldwide at cost to the buyer.
