CALLING ALL BOOTS!

Alan A wrote to me this morning asking "does anyone know when Starless made it’s debut.  The earliest recording I can see is during the early ’74 European Tour - Brescia  Italy, March 20 1974."

The first time Starless was played was the previous night in Udine, March 19, 1974. This was also the first (and possibly last) time a new song called Guts On My Side was played. 

We have the last part of the soundboard for this gig in the archive but for the rest of the gig, including the Guts track it's on a terrible quality bootleg recording.

Even after David and Alex's very best attempts to ressurect it from its sonic grave, it remains unlistenable, and sparked a ferocious debate amongst the DGMLive team at the time about whether it should be made available or not. 

Does anyone out there have a better quality boot of this concert they could send us of Udine, March 19th 1974.
