Rare Redgum Live

Back in the late 1970's I had the pleasure of attending a concert at Collingwood Town Hall in Melbourne. One of the artists performing was the Adelaide based band, Redgum.

This recording is of a "fill in" track that Redgum used at such times as when they broke a guitar string and had a short time to fill while they did a re-string.

This track was recorded in an unusual way... using Sennheiser Binaural Stereo Microphones mounted on a dummy recording head on the side of the mixing desk platform, direct to a Nakamichi Cassette Deck. It brings a live sound from near the rear of the room that has a clear, crisp quality, whilst still maintaining that ambience that can only be obtained from recording in the middle of an audience.

This is nothing like the Redgum songs you are used to... I hope you enjoy!!

  1. Saw Redgum live at the Palais, with "Los Trios Ringbarkus" as support. Great night.
